Bringing Out The Best In Every Child
If your child is currently self-isolating, we ask that you access Oak National Academy. This is a Government funded website which provides work and online lessons for each year group. You can access this at www.thenational.academy. On accessing the website, you will see it is split into the following year groups: Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6.) You can then choose your child’s age range and a subject. All subjects are covered. You can also access BBC Bitesize and your child’s class page on our website, which has online home learning resources. If your child is self-isolating and you do not have any access to the internet at all, then please contact the school office.
If your child is at home and they are ill, there is absolutely no expectation that they will access online learning.
This half term we will be revisiting our work on Place Value and then consolidating the expanded method for addition and subtraction. The following link then moves on to multiplication facts.
This half term, we are going to be learning about poetry and different forms. We would therefore like you to follow this first link to the national oak academy website where you will be directed to a unit of poetry.
We will then move onto narrative writing focusing on narratives with a historical setting. Children will benefit from practising spellings and these can be found on Purple Mash and there are games that can be played to enhance understanding of these spellings.
For the narrative unit, we would like you to follow this link:
