Now that school is closed for most children, we are posting some ideas for home learning here. Staff have picked websites that have good activities on them and also put on some worksheets that children can work on at home, as well as project ideas and shorter tasks. There is also information on our class pages too.
Twinkle is a website full of teacher resources that we use a lot. They have all kinds of work sheets and useful practice materials. Usually we have to pay to join the site, but in the light of the Coronavirus situation, they are offering free access to all. Go to their home page: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/ Click on the top right where is says Enter your code CLICK HERE and you will be asked to register and enter a code, which is: UKTWINKLHELPS
A great chart for household charts can be found here. We've seen ideas on Facebook where families are making daily timetables that pinpoint times for learning, for play, for eating, for choring, for creative activities and exercise. This type of thing will help give days some purpose and prevent boredom.
First News (an excellent online and print newspaper written for children) are offering a free edition about the current virus and the government advice. It would be particularly appropriate to be shared with upper KS2. Click here to download.
If you need to contact us while school is closed, please use the letters@ email as usual. We will be checking it regularly. Latest parent information from the government can be found here.
Please stay safe and healthy and let us know if you need anything. Hopefully we'll be back to normal soon.
