The teachers have put together some resources that your child can use to keep learning at home. These resources are just a starting point and should match up with the work set on Sumdog and Times Tables Rock Stars. Please dip into work from other year groups if you want to!
Of course, learning home is very different from learning at school but here are the top 4 ways learning home can be better than learning at school:
1. You can read for hours! Get lost in a book. And then get lost in another book!
2. You can just keep practising the same thing over and over until you can do it – like times tables, drawing horses, keepy-uppies or handwriting. Practise for as long as you like!
3. Start a big project and stick at it – write a long story, build a model of the Titanic, knit a cardigan, learn to speak French or write computer code.
4. You can do it when it suits you! Work over the Easter holidays or save it all for the 14th of April – it’s up to you! Now is a great chance for everyone to work on their Engagement and Perseverance.
If you don’t have a tablet, a smart phone or a computer the work will be available from the school office on Monday, 9am-3pm, as work packs. Every week we will improve what we can offer on the Home Learning part of our website so please bear with us while we keeping adding to it.
We’re really keen to find ways for the children to keep in contact with us so we can see what they are learning and keep helping. Watch this space for further developments…
