HOME LEARNING PAGE (DURING SCHOOL CLOSURE)
While school is closed we will be preparing a weekly activity sheet for each year group and uploading it to your child's year group page. We have sent each child a Home Learning Book where they can complete some of the activities we suggest. We would also encourage children to spend some time doing nice family activities, such as playing games, watching movies, baking together or gardening.
Children can also:
- Read up to 30 minutes a day
- Use Times Table Rock Stars/ Numbots to practise key maths skills
- Use Spelling Shed to practise weekly spellings
- Use My Maths. We will be asking the teachers to add additional tasks to each class account
- On each year group webpage there are some reading and maths activities. There are also some activities uploaded to this page.
A number of educational providers are also offering free accounts during the school closure so we will post examples here over the next couple of weeks. The government have recently compiled a list of good educational sites, which is the first link.
