Covid -19 Home learning
Schools will be closed due to the Covid- 19 (Coronavirus) from MONDAY 23rd MARCH until further notice. This excludes children of key workers and vulnerable children. (EDIT updated 19/3/20) We will inform you as we get more information from the DfE and Government. The local authority have set up a home learning page that you can access at https://www.integra.co.uk/home-learning/ with lots of links to different areas of the curriculum.
We would like to direct you to some activities that you can complete with your children.
Firstly, read with your child as much as possible. While you might not have the exact reading level that they are reading in school, any reading is great reading. Share stories together and enjoy longer texts. Ask children questions like "What will happen next?" "Why do you think s/he did that?" Please record all reading in the children's reading records to share with teachers when we return to school. If we are notified of closure in advance then we will send more books home than we would usually do.
Children in Year 1 and 2 have access to Purple Mash: www.purplemash.com/ssisbs15 Mr Jefferies, (Computing Subject Lead) has sent home children's usernames and passwords. When you log in to Purple Mash there is a button called '2do' if this has a number next to it then that means that a teacher has assigned a specific task to your child. As well as these tasks feel free to complete any of the activities that your child is interested in from the website.
Teachers will be sending home new exercise books for you to use with your child. This might be used for: writing stories, writing a diary of what you get up to, writing some facts about things that you learn, or completing some maths problems.
The website twinkl provides teachers with lots of resources and all teachers have their own log on. Twinkl are also offering parents the opportunity to use the website and download resources for children for one month. To access this visit https://www.twinkl.co.uk/and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS.
Learning to tell the time is a crucial skill that children need to learn by the time they leave Year 2. This would be an ideal time to teach you child about analogue clocks and telling the time.
The website https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ is offering parents the chance to use their activities without charge by using the username: march20 and password: home.
We do not intend that children spend all of their time at home learning using screens. The website https://abcdoes.com/home-learning/ has some activities that children can complete at home such as craft activities and playing board games with the family.
Here are also a further 25 ideas that you could do at home.
Here are some ideas for writing that you could do in the exercise book:
All year groups could also complete some art challenges such as these:
In Reception, children love watching Number Blocks and Alphablocks on BBC iPlayer follow these links to watch the programs:
For Year 1 and 2 it would be really helpful for you to check if your child can read and write the Common Exception Words.
We have also included some White Rose Maths power points for Year 1 and 2. These are full of questions that you could either answer on the powerpoint and print off or you could answer the questions in the exercise book that we will send home.
