The current events will go down in history and will be remembered for hundreds of years to come. In our history lessons, we read diaries and stories from people who have lived through events from history. Keep a daily diary of what you have done with your day. Write this up on paper or in your Home Learning book! This might include:

- What you've done with your day

- What you've seen

- How you feel 

History in a Diary | Memorabilia House

On our return to school, we can look at these diaries and, who knows, maybe in a hundred years time your diary will be used to teach children about what is going on at the minute and what it was like for children!

Choose which resource you would like further information on.


Pupils will visit the MyMaths website. They will be asked to login using their login details.

Their teacher will have set them lessons/activities to complete. When pupils login they should:

  1. Visit
  2. Enter the school username and password.
  3. The ‘Portal username’ section should appear like below. If it does not, click Portal Login in the corner. Use the pupils' individual username and password to login.
  4. The homework has been set for pupils to work through.

Click on the first one and select either ‘Try the lesson’ if you’d like to practice the skill or ‘Start homework’ to begin the homework. As pupils complete this, this is sent to teachers to view.

Times Tables Rockstars

Pupils should visit and login using their username and password.

School: Askern Spa Junior School

Pupils should select ‘Garage’ mode and play for up to 30 minutes a day. This website automatically introduces and tests new times tables when pupils are speedy and accurate in those already being answered.


For this, pupils should visit and login using their individual logins.

This will then take them through to reading texts and varied questions. These questions are designed to let pupils practise the skills we often teach in school reading sessions. Their progress is tracked and recorded for teachers to monitor.

If this is their first time using the site, it will begin with a baseline assessment. This will be used to pitch their reading level so do not worry if this, to begin with, is too hard for pupils.
