You are very welcome to add to this learning with ideas which might interest you as a family, or with activities from the websites below. An exercise book has been provided for tasks which require paper, and for children to record any projects and learning which you might choose to do as a family. Children also have logins for websites such as Timestable Rockstars, SPAG.COM, Spelling Frame, Nessy and Language Nut. Where your child’s class use these websites, you will find your child’s login details inside the exercise book provided.
As a minimum, children should be doing the following each day: reading, times table practice (Year 1 upwards), practising spellings/phonics, a piece of writing, an outdoor/physical activity and some topic/project work.
Should you require any support, class teachers have provided their email addresses at the front of each pack. I am also available to contact on the following email address between 9am and 3:15pm, Monday-Friday: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have this guidance from BBC Bitesize that you may find useful BBC Bitesize daily lessons.
I hope you all stay safe and well.
