Quick Links - useful if your child is learning from home
Whilst you are working through the home learning provided, please remember that if the work was being done at school, it would probably take longer than when children do it at home. Teachers have to explain to 30 children and check they all understand before children start to work by themselves. Please do not worry about or try to fill 5 hours every day of school work.
As well as the learning packs that were sent home, there are many online PE sessions happening – Joe Wicks and Oti Mabuse have brilliant work outs and live dance sessions. Click here for more information with Mrs Field's Fun Fitness Ideas.
There are a number of YouTube sites that teach how to draw or create different art projects.
Please do email us photos of your creations!
Reading – Please continue to encourage daily reading. We have always worked together to foster a love of reading and this should continue even though school is closed. A number of famous authors are sharing books online and Amazon are not charging for many audio books. Try to enjoy the shared experience of reading aloud and perhaps laughing at an old favourite together!
Mental Maths – For younger children, keep counting – forwards, backwards, counting on from a given number or saying the next 2 or 3 numbers in a sequence. In particular, focus on crossing over the tens barrier e.g knowing that 70 comes immediately after 69.
For older children, keep practising on TimesTable Rockstars!
Spellings – There is an excellent website called Spelling Frame. It is free and is full of interesting ways to learn spelling rules. It is very straightforward to use as all the content is organised into year groups.

Online safety - The safety of children online is paramount, especially as the use of devices has increased during remote learning. There are many things you can do to help keep your children safe online. For more information, read the online safety presentation for parents (below) and visit the 'Computing' page on the school website for more information.
