Summer activities for learning at home
Thank you to all parents who completed our survey regarding the home learning which staff had been setting for children throughout the lockdown period. Children have worked extremely hard these last few weeks and we understand that many of you are now ready for time off school work to be able tor recharge your batteries and have time together as a family. As a result staff will not be setting home learning for children through the homework page where children can log on.
However, there have been some requests for activities that you can do with your child over the school summer holiday to keep their minds active and to help them remember the basic skills in English and maths. We have also put on some transition booklets and activities that you can complete with your child in preparation for the new school year and some activities for outdoor activities and rainy day activities. Some of these include English and maths skills.
As well as these downloadable documents, children still have access to Spelling Shed, Maths Shed and Purple Mash. Spelling Shed will continue to focus on words suitable for your childs year group and there are the high frequency words for practise at home attached on here as a document. Maths Shed will give them access to basic skills and concepts, particularly times tables etc and on Purple Mash, children can complete an activity of their choice and save it. A 2Do does not need to be set.
We have also included some phonics activities for you to practise particularly with reception, year one and year two children. It is vital they continue to practise the different phonemes.
We hope that you have a busy and fun filled summer and if there is only one activity you can complete for school, reading each day is important for all children as this supports their writing also in school.
