Working from home
Creative Friday ideas
Well, here we are again. Most children will be learning from home which can be a difficult time so please do not worry about how much work your child is completing, just try to complete the work each day as best you can.
Try to stick to some sort of routine with regards to working from home. Select the best time of day to suit you and use this time each day to do the work. There will be videos to use as part of the learning and I will post videos from me for the children to use in lessons. We are also going to be using live lessons during the day but if you cannot take part at the specified time, you can watch them later to suit you.
Don't forget that TT Rockstars is also available to use each day for short 10-15 minute intervals as well as reading at home. We have included information on how to access books online from the library and Oxford Owl. Read each day and now is a great time to read as many of the '50 books to read before you leave year 4' we looked at on World Book Day.
Year 3 and 4 have a list of spellings that we have been learning this year. I have included a copy of this list on your working from home page. Spend a short while each week going over the words you find difficult to spell and ask someone at home to test you on 10 words each week. You could also put these into sentences using prepositions, adjectives, speech or noun phrases as well as the correct punctuation.
As a Church School we suggest that we spend time reading about and thinking about our Christian faith so you may want to read stories from the Bible as part of your reading time.
It is important to keep active over the extended break although we may spend long periods at home. See if you complete the daily mile each day as well as going on Go Noodle for fun dance and active activities. Perhaps you can get people at home to join in with you!
I will keep adding to the pages over the break as well as sending out messages on Parenthub.
Keep safe and be positive at this difficult time. It will change. Remember to think about others in our community and keep them in your prayers.
Ideas for learning at home - daily timetable
In the event that classes or individuals are not able to attend school, home learning content will be available here. Click on your child's year group and you will see daily work broken down into English, Maths, spelling and topic work. There will be videos and resources available to help with the lessons as well as links to online learning.
Below are some ideas to help at home in the event of school closures or having to work from home.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities.
Have a look at this website which has lots and lots of websites for you to try out. There are websites on robotics, coding, computing and space as well as activities from the RSPB, Eden Project and Raspberry Pi.
