During this time of home learning we recommend that your child does one maths and one english activity each day. Alongside this some time spent practising their times tables (Yr2 - 6) and spellings would be advised. They will also want to read as much as is possible at least 30 minutes a day as a minimum. Individual teachers will also be sending home a variety of paper resources relevant to their age and topics.
We have sent home an empty exercise book for your child to use for their activities but also to use if they want to record any work that they have carried out themselves.
We are also including some online resources that we recommend you access. These have a lot of interesting activities and links to other resources such as Numbots and Times Tables Rock Stars. These are fun ways for your children to learn that may take the monotony out of the day. Click below for the link:
