Oak National Academy is a new collection of high-quality lessons and online resources. Backed by the Government, it has been created in response to the coronavirus lockdown.

The online classroom offers free access to great teachers, delivering video lessons, quizzes and worksheets. Available for both primary and secondary levels, it covers a range of subjects. All of the lessons are ordered so your child can learn along with a clear plan. They provide new lessons and resources each week.

Oak National Academy will fit alongside other resources such as BBC Bitesize to offer a structure for the day for children until schools fully reopen.

There are two options if you choose to use this resource:

Either you can follow a set plan of lessons across a range of subjects – for this, click the Schedule option. Or you can access particular lessons in certain subjects – for this, click the Subject option.


BBC Bitesize is also providing daily online lessons. The homeschooling lessons have been created with teachers and other educational experts and feature a mix of videos, animations, practice activities, quizzes and games.

English - 

Here you will find different English activities every day. If you are new to the site then take a look at previous lessons too. They come with videos and quizzes to help explain and ideas for interesting activities. 


Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar -  I can identify the ‘4 different sentence types’; I can write sentences that are statements, questions, commands or exclamations. 

  • Read these four sentences. One is a statement - it tells you facts. Another is a question. The remaining two are either a command - an instruction; or an exclamation - saying something in a loud or surprised voice.  Can you work out which is which?  

    • What a bad dog you are!  Give that back to me, now.   He’s just chewed my shoe, one of the old trainers I wear for gardening. Why did I leave them out of the cupboard?   

  • I’m sure you could tell that ‘What a bad dog you are!’ is an exclamation sentence; ‘Give that back to me now.’ is a command; ‘He’s just chewed my shoe, one of the old trainers I wear for gardening.’ is a statement, it’s telling you some facts; and finally ‘Why did I leave them out of the cupboard?’ is obviously a question. (The answer to which is probably ‘I forgot to put them away.’!)

  • As usual, there are plenty of KS1 websites that can help you sort out the 4 sentence types.

  • a 4 minute video on Oxford Owl which explains the 4 sentence types. 

  •   This is helpful

  • There is also a lesson on Oak Academy, first posted Wednesday 13th May, on the 4 sentence types. You can look for any past  lesson by checking the ‘schedule’ on their Year 2 pages.

  • Can you try writing a short 4 sentence ‘story’ that includes all four sentence types? It is a good idea to think of a surprising event to give you ideas for the 4 sentences. It could be a big surprise like a birthday present, or a small one like getting an ice cream but dropping it on the floor!    Have fun with your sentences.   We would love to see what you write - please email them to us using the class emails.


Maths - I can add and subtract numbers using my preferred method Column subtraction - Number lines - 2 step word problems Problem solving with bar models


Reading -  I can answer questions about a story or a poem

  • Please see the Reading Comprehension tasks in the Home Learning Packs, which we hope you picked up a week or so ago (from 4th May)

  • We have included a short poem, a story and a non-fiction text.

  • We suggest you choose one of these each week. If you want to do them more quickly, that’s great!

  • If you are not sure about any of the answers to the questions, please email us and we’ll help.


Topic - Conclusion to topic

Well done if you have completed this topic. Hopefully you have managed to grow your own plants, maybe you’ve even eaten some of the produce. I’m also hopeful that your knowledge of the parts of the plant and the role that each part plays is better than when you started. Here are some ideas for you to complete to show off your new knowledge.

  • Suggest how to care for a plant so it grows well.  – could you write instructions on how to plant or care for your plant?

  • Give examples of food crops. Can you grow some and enjoy eating them?

  • Explain how plants are living things – Could you produce a poster showing why a plant is living?


RE - I can read or listen to a story about Jesus, and learn more about how people he met trusted him


PSHE - To think about and discuss how we all grow up, and the changes that occur as we grow older.  To understand that some changes can be managed easily and others can sometimes be a challenge.  To think about the future, and to have hope and aspirations for our own futures.




Computing - I can learn how to type.  

  • Typing quickly and accurately is a useful skill. As last week, there are some fun games and typing lessons on this website that you might like to try. You will need to use a laptop or computer for these though. If you tried one game then try a different one. Which typing lesson are you up to now?
