Saplings' Home Learning

Message from Ms. Gilmartin - 31.3.20


Hello again Saplings! I hope you are all well and looking after yourselves? I have received some lovely emails from you and heard about the things you have been doing at home. Well done to you all for getting used to all your new routines!


I have set up log in details for each child for a fabulous learning platform called Active Learn which you will find here:


In particular you will be able to read new reading books set at your current book level on this website. I will keep checking it and issue you more books as you read them. There is also a maths section called The Maths Factor, have a try of that too and let me know how you find it.


Please contact me for your individual username and password by sending an email request to our office email address: or by ringing the school mobile number: 07399 326030 and leaving a message with Mrs Bamforth.


I am still adding activities to Sumdog so don’t forget to log in there as well.


I’d love to see some of your art. As our science topic this term is plants, why don’t you draw me a picture of your favourite plant, or tree, or your garden…or even an imaginary plant?!


For exercise I’m sure many of you have seen the Joe Wicks PE link below! And there is also Cosmic Kids for some gentle yoga.

Please email me if you have anything you want to share - I will try to put some pictures on our class page so we can all see what wonderful things you have been doing!


Stay safe and stay well!
