Welcome to Carrington Junior School's home learning hub.
We are now using Microsoft Teams as our home learning platform. Please access your class on Teams if you need to complete home learning.
The links below will help you to get to some of your home learning portals.
The information below relates to general information, learning tasks and suggested routines.
Still hungry to do more learning? Great!

Planning your day
It's really important to keep things in a routine if it's possible.
Did you know:
Most people work better in the morning.
Most people work better after some exercise or fresh air.
Having a routine and repeating subjects every day helps your brain to learn better. (and stops you from forgetting things)
Some of you will have different times you do your home learning depending upon when your adults can help you. The ideas below might help you to organise your time.
You will have daily tasks in English, maths and reading. You will also have continuous tasks like learning your times tables and daily reading.
Your teacher will be able to see your work in Teams and will make comments on your work to help you to improve.
When you're working from home make sure you stick to a normal daily routine and bedtime. This will help your brain to get the rest it needs and be ready for work in the morning.
Most classes have maths and English first, followed by a break and focused reading and spelling before lunch. Science and topic lessons are normally after lunch. It might help you to stick to this routine at home too.
Suggested home learning routine
Why not start with some exercise?
Maths— 1 hour Log in to Teams to find out what your learning is.
Take a break:
Do some exercise or something relaxing.
English - Most year groups have writing focus. You will be working through the writing process, or may be exploring writing in a different way.
Reading - Reading Masters - You will spend most of the week looking at the same text, exploring: vocabulary and context, retrieval, inference and wider understanding.
Don't forget to do your daily Big Cat or other book reading.
Take a break for lunch.
You will have daily after noon learning set for you. This might be science, PSHE or topic work. On Wednesdays we have wellbeing Wednesdays, which will be screen free afternoons. You might have some outdoor learning, PE or art tasks.
If you're all up to date, choose some other learning such as some computing, science, art or a virtual museum visit.
Now relax - you've worked hard.
Do something just for fun.
