Home learning

Welcome to home learning with St Martin's. 

This page will give you some information, guidance and ideas during the time when we are all affected by following the guidance during the coronavirus pandemic.    The learning packs children took home on the 19th March had lots of ideas to get everyone started with learning from home.  When you are looking for more ideas, this page and the following class pages are here to help.   

You will have received, and will continue to receive,  text and email messages about how to change reading books.  Every Monday, the classteachers will update their class pages with a weekly update and  information about some more learning activities that you could do at home.  We will also continue to send out our weekly newsletter on a Friday and you can continue to keep in touch by emailing or by contacting us on Twitter @stmartinsfang.

On this page, we have included some useful general links and documents to download that we hope you will find useful.  Your child's class page will have more specific ideas to help and support their home learning.


 This is a lovely book for children to explain the current situation with coronavirus.


May Wellbeing Calendar. Lots of ideas to help you look after your wellbeing this month.


NEW : This is a helpful guide for parents/carers giving links to where to go for tips, advice, support and ideas to help with family life during the current situation.  It has been prepared by the East Riding Safeguarding Children's Partnership and our local NHS Care Commissioning Group.



When we are at school, we put aside some time every day to get together, pause, reflect and worship.  You might want to do this as a family at home.  Here are some resources from the Diocese of York and the Diocese of Canterbury that we think would be lovely to share at home. Home_learning/william-and-lucy-explore-worship-at-home.pdf

If you would like to watch an assembly on the theme of hope, please click on the following link.  There are some introductory talks first, but the Archbishop of Canterbury leads the assembly after around 6 minutes of the video.  if you enjoy this assembly, there will be new assemblies every week from 11am every Thursday.
