KS1 Summer Learning Links-July 2021

Date: 13th Jul 2021 @ 7:05pm

I know we are all looking forward to the summer break and enjoying time at home that is not home schooling!

However, it is important that a child keeps their mind working during the long holidays to avoid them experiencing brain-drain and facing a setback once term starts again. Research consistently shows that children who do not engage in any type of mental activity during the summer tend to lose up to a third of what they have learnt during the academic year. Teachers typically spend four to six weeks re-teaching material that pupils have forgotten over the summer and children spend about the same amount of time settling back into the habit of learning.

Therefore, please find links below to support summer learning.

English & Maths




Science, History & Geography  (The children will be using Curriculum Visions a lot next year so please use this as much as possible over the holiday so they become familiar with it)




Have a great summer break, stay safe and we look forward to seeing all of you in September.

Best wishes,

Heidi Cross & Ian Ross
