Help your child with their studies with home learning. White Rose Maths has prepared a series of Maths lessons online for each year group from Year 1 to 8.


The Third Space Maths Hub

Supporting schools and pupils with maths teaching and learning remains our priority during these uncertain times. We want to ensure the support we provide continues whether it’s delivered in school or at home.

Our tutors are still delivering online 1-to-1 lessons and, if needed, any pupil signed up to the intervention with access to a laptop or computer can log in to our online classroom from home for their weekly online 1-to-1 maths lesson. 

The Third Space Maths Hub continues to offer hundreds of free maths resources for all staff at your school. If you haven’t already, you can register for a free account here to access all free resources, guides and CPD videos.

To make accessing our resources even easier, we have collated a list of resources most appropriate for home-learning. You can view the full list here.

We will be adding additional resources and resource packs over the coming days and weeks designed specifically to ensure teachers are able to continue supporting their pupils in the event of school closures.

We’re currently working on ways to ensure we are providing the support needed for everyone involved in home-learning should schools close. We will be keeping schools updated with our developments in this area.

Junk Samba Band Upbeat

This session invites pupils to make a junk percussion instrument and perform in a samba band.  They will be provided with all the instructions and tuition they need to participate and should be encouraged to re-visit the video to practise and perfect their performance.

 1. ‘First you make your fingers click’

A body percussion and vocal warm-up.  Pupils are challenged to co-ordinate four body percussion sounds in time with the song which also becomes a round.

2. ‘Making and Creating’

Pupils are introduced to five different samba band instruments and shown how to make a junk percussion version of the same instruments at home.  The rhythmic pattern for each instrument is taught using the ‘SAP-it!’ system where pupils ‘Say it’ then ‘Airplay it’ then ‘Perform it’.

 3.‘Be in a Band’

Having learnt the INTRO, OUTRO and GROOVE patterns, pupils are invited to use their instrument to perform ‘Samba Reggae’.  A play-along video showing all five instruments, plus leader, and players will provide visual and aural leads for children to follow.  If pupils are encouraged to practise their parts then it is hoped there may be scope for a live performance some time in the future!




Upbeat Music to participate in

Upbeat video – parent guidance notes

In the video I explore the musical elements of rhythm, volume (or dynamics) and tempo (speed). I also touch briefly on pitch (how high or low a note is).

The programme of events is:

-          ‘Coffee Pots’: voice/enunciation warm-up

-          A brief full-body warm-up!

-          ‘Lickety Split’: vocal warm-up incorporating changes of volume, tempo and pitch

-          A brief discussion of rhythm, leading into the song ‘I’ve Got Rhythm’

-          Body percussion based on pizza toppings, and some thoughts about pulse/beat and how this underpins rhythm

-          Body percussion along with the backing track for ‘I’ve Got Rhythm’ – and a final sing-through of the song to round things off
