School Closures Week 1 

 

Hello everyone! Half way through week one of home learning- I hope that you are all being well behaved for your parents and making sure you do at least a small amount of school work every day! The Easter holidays are still a holiday so enjoy yourselves and keep the reading  and writing up! I will be ringing you all after the Easter holidays to find out how you are getting on - be good and keep working hard! 

Parents- 

The Parents home learning page on the website has hundreds of resources on to help your child learn at home. We really don't want you to get stressed out about home learning these are difficult times and being stuck inside with your family for several weeks can be hard enough without arguing about school work. My suggestion- make a daily timetable- keep to short activities and keep it fun. I've put a suggested daily timetable below however do whatever works for you! I will re-post on here every week and if you are having any urgent problems then email school, or I will be ringing every home after the Easter holidays and we can chat then.

 

9am- Join Joe Wicks for his daily work out or Try out some of the PE activities on the website or use GoNoodle to get active. 

9.30 -Pobble writing -Look at the daily picture - write a story or information about the picture.  http://www.pobble365.com  

10 am- https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning- Join the maths party at 10 am each day watch the video and answer the questions. 

Snack and free choice time

11.30- 1:1 reading time with a parent - ask lots of questions or use an online text with questions such as practise sats papers or 

The Reading Realm - https://thereadingrealm.co.uk/ or twinkl which has reading comprehension packs. 

Lunch

1.-Go out if safe for your family and have a walk or jog or bike ride- taking all precautions to avoid others. 

1.30- Household chores/ cleaning/cooking/gardening /washing.2-Research and Topic= Choose an interesting topic and start a research project- i.,e. a country or animal or author or famous person, think about how to present your work- booklet, leaflet- powerpoint. Children all have googleclassroom accounts they can use the google s

lides application to create slideshows(will need support with this) - or just pen and paper is fine! 

3 - Arts and Crafts time- Miss Peddle has added some art activities onto the home learning page

 

Obviously you will want to change the things you do each day but having a structure to your day could help- people are advising to try and get dressed each day and keep active! 

For the children of key workers still in school we are following a similar timetable here. 

Keep safe and well, take care and I'll be in touch after the holidays. Miss King.
