Offline Home Learning at St Richard’s from January 2021 onwards


It is vital that children at St Richard’s continue to make excellent progress in their learning whilst we are closed to most pupils. Pupils in Early Years and Key Stage One are expected to undertake 3 hours of home learning per day, Monday to Friday throughout lockdown. Pupils in Key Stage 2 are expected to undertake 4 hours of daily study, Monday to Friday. Please visit the offline and online home learning pages of this website for more information.

From January 2021 onwards:

Offline (paper-based) home learning: In the week commencing Monday 11th January each child at St Richard’s (Nursery to Year 6) who is not currently attending school will receive (through the post) published CGP books which closely mirror the curriculum that they would have followed in school. These CGP books come with instructions on how they must be used but it is difficult to be too prescriptive as everyone’s home circumstances (and access to online learning) are different. It would be appreciated if parents can try to match up the CGP pages with our online content where this is possible and available.

There are answers at the back of most CGP books, as well as a comments sheet at the front. Parents should use both in order to monitor their child(ren)’s efforts. Children must write their full name and class on the top right hand side of each CGP book. All CGP books must be returned to school with children after lock-down so that teachers can see how well they have done. House points and other prizes will be awarded for effort and neat work.
