Primary Home Learning

All the teachers at Ark John Keats have been so impressed with the dedication from both parents and pupils with their home learning. While we know everyone needs a well-deserved break, we believe it’s vital for all scholars to keep up their great learning habits and spend some time reading and working each day. Doing this will make sure that we are able to start our new school year as well as possible in September.

Further details on home learning during the summer holidays are available below. All pupils at school from Y1-Y5 will have been given another plain exercise book to work in. For those at home, you will be able to collect one exercise book for your child from the Secondary reception area between 10am-12 on weekdays during the summer holidays.

Please note that the Primary office will not be staffed for the whole holiday period. Teachers will also not be making phone calls home during this time.
