At this uncertain time, we want to do our best to support our pupils academically whilst they are having to spend prolonged periods of time away from the school learning environment. We would like to offer a list of websites that are free for you to use, and that we believe can effectively support any home learning that you are able to provide. Go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/five-ways-to-keep-your-kids-learning-at-home/z4966v4 for general advice. We thank you in advance for your patience and support.
The Daily Routine
Here is a suggested daily timetable that you could adopt at home. We believe that it is important to get into a routine; it will make things easier if everyone knows what to expect! The timetable we have attached is very similar to the one being used in school at the moment, but it is only meant to be a guide; don't feel that you have to follow it to the minute. You may have your own routines that differ from ours; send yours in and we will include it on this page!
'Mathematics Mastery' is a site with effective and engaging maths activities for each year group. The activities can be downloaded and printed off ('at-home materials')
The popular teacher resource site 'Twinkl' is opening its doors for a month free to parents. Clink on the link below and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS, and you should have access to a very wide range of activities and printables.
'Phonics Play' is a great resource that is designed to develop KS1 reading skills. To access the content, the user name is 'March 20' and password is 'Home'.
'Teach Your Monster To Read' is a website that supports early reading. It is free to use, but you will need to create an account with an email address and password.
'Top Marks' is a website with links to online games that develop skills right across the curriculum (we at school particularly like the maths games!). Activities are organised by subject and age-appropriateness.
'Science Sparks' is a site that contains lots of ideas for home experiments aimed at all age groups. There are instructions and explanations for the activities, as well a wide range of printable instruction and work sheets.
The best of the rest....
