If schools close in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19, children will need to continue their education at home.

 

  • All children have school reading books available to them, which they should be reading for at least 20 minutes each day as part of their normal homework.
  • Try to read a balance of fiction and non-fiction texts.
  • If they come across unfamiliar vocabulary, then they should use appropriate strategies to make a sensible guess before looking up the meaning of the word.
  • Bug club (online) is an excellent resource as it provides a wide range of appropriate texts and also asks the children questions about the information that they have read.

 

  • There are many websites online that can be used for revision of maths topics such as http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/maths. and www.mathsisfun.com
  • The games that are set on active learn are matched to the topics that we have covered in maths so far this year, so they are useful to revise from. There are also videos available that can demonstrate skills step-by-step as your teacher would do in the class.
  • Times Table Rockstars (online) allows children to practise their speed and fluency with their times tables which will help to support them in a wide range of mathematical concepts.
  • Purple Mash (online) has many maths activities to consider
  • Topmarks.co.uk (online) also has maths games to play

 

 

 

 

  • Purple Mash (online) allows children to produce work related to their different topics from across the entire curriculum. Children will be set work by their teacher to complete on Purple Mash.
  • Children can also research topics over the internet as they would usually for talk homework and turn it into a project.
