We will update this page weekly with learning tasks for the children to complete at home. We recommend that you plan and prioritise the basics- English and Maths. Children learn better in the morning so focus on these subjects then.
A suggested typical day:
Could also include:
Design & Technology
Try and keep to a similar routine each day and build in regular break times. Physical activity will be more important than ever.
To contact your child's class teacher, use the listed email below. These email addresses are to be used to ask questions about learning activities sent home or set online. Teachers will endeavour to respond during normal school hours. Any other questions should be sent directly to Mrs Smart.
Have a look in your garden can you find a flower? Draw and label it. Are there any other parts you can name? Look at where the flower grows in your garden. What does it have to help it to grow? Can you find out a special fact about the flower?
Home Learning Task 23.3.20
Create and personalise your own Timetable. Think about which learning areas might need to be earlier in your day. Which activities will you choose for your movement breaks to help keep your mind and body focused ? What will you choose as your reward at the end of the day for all your achievements?
Here are some links below for movement break ideas
We appreciate that taking on the role of teacher with your child/children for some of you might seem a little daunting, so here are some suggestions to help achieve learning but in a fun and interesting way.
Build a den or quiet space to read in
Find a really unusual place to read
Read to a relative or friend through Facetime or Skype
Read to your favourite toys
Common Exception words
Write a selection of words on small pieces of paper and hide them around the house, go on a word hunt, give clues if necessary
Play word Bingo - write 6/8 words on pieces of paper and have a set of words for the Bingo caller
Play matching word pairs - write 2 of each word on pieces of paper, mix them up and lay face down, see if you can find 2 words that match
Can you find a given word around your house or garden either on a food packet, in a book or magazine or on one of your toys or games?
English - writing
You could keep a diary, write the date at the top of the page making sure to use a capital letter for the day and month. Draw a picture of something you have done during the day and then write a caption to match your picture.
REMEMBER sentences have capital letters at the beginning, finger spaces between each word and a full stop at the end.
Make patterns using Lego
Go on a shape hunt, can you spot a given 2D or 3D shape around your house or garden
Play shops using coins or tokens
Can you spot when the clock says 10 o'clock?
Take photo's of your activities and stick them into your homework journal, we would love to see them when we are back in school
Over the next few days and weeks suddenly everything your children will have known will change. They might not go to school or go out to public places, they may not attend any clubs or see their friends or relatives. This may create some anxiety for some and bring many questions some that we may even find hard to answer.
Here is a useful website with lots of information to help with this.
