Work Space

Your starting point for home learning

Welcome to the HJS Work Space

This is the place to find tips to help you learn

From here, you can easily link to the Home Learning page for your year group, and we've put quick links to various resources that you might find helpful.

We hope that everyone will be able to come into school every day and learn with us in the classroom, but in case you find yourself having to isolate at home for a bit, remember to check out Teams. If you run out of ideas in Teams, there are lots of ideas on this page to keep you busy.


Reading is one of the most important things children can learn to do - if not, THE most important. Here is a presentation by our school Reading Lead all about how we teach Reading at HJS and how you can support your child to learn to read at home.

Online learning

Microsoft Teams is where to go to find all the important information about what is going on in school.

All children have a username and password. (If they forget it, any member of school staff can look it up for them if they send us a message.)

General messages that apply to the whole year group are posted on the Year Group Team. In the Files section, each week teachers will upload relevant plans so that children can chat with their parents about what they have been learning particularly in English and Maths and Science.

Children also have a Class Team, where they can respond to messages from their teacher and engage in discussion with each other.

Look after yourself

We want everyone to look after their mental health as well as their physical health, not just during the Covid pandemic, but for all time. Here are 5 tips you can always follow, and a link to our Wellbeing page.

  • Contribute: Help out around the home or in your local community.
  • Relax: Make sure you have some quiet time in your day.
  • Connect: Enjoy conversations and play games with family or friends.
  • Create: Make music or art, invent something and build it!
  • Notice: Look around you, listen, and take notice of what you see and hear and how it makes you feel.

Useful websites


If you are ever stuck for something to do, you can't go wrong if you pick up a book and read! We've got lists of recommended reading books for every year group. How many of these can you tick off?
