This blog post will act as a learning forum for pupils and parents providing a single point of contact for questions or queries about the work children have been set through the school website.
This is an important year and I would encourage pupils to try and ensure that (unless unwell) they practice a range of skills daily while at home:
- Read Bookflix books and reading books (ideally 30 minutes a day)
- World Book Online have a fabulous collection of over 3,000 eBooks and audio books available for free for children to access at home. Click here to access the link.
- Time capsule activities: 1. Write a letter to themselves. Talk about their favourite TV show, song, books etc. 2. Write about their future self: talk about what they would like to be when they grow up, why and five things they want to do when they are an adult. 3. Draw a picture of their family. 4. If it is safe to, get a newspaper and let them cut out articles that they think would be important for their future self. Put them altogether in a box or scrap book and stick it up in the attic or somewhere you don’t usually go.
