If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to see me before or after school.
During this time I will be adding various links that will help your child to continue their learning from home. You should all have the extensive home learning pack and logins for PurpleMash and SumDog. These are two excellent and creative sites to engage children in learning. On the PurpleMash site there is opportunity for your child to hand in their work with a comment for me, hopefully this comment will tell me what they found easy and what was a challenge. As with any piece of work I am always looking for application of skills including sentence structure, parts of a sentence and the use of conjunctions, fronted adverbials to start a sentence.
I hope that you find this useful during the coming weeks.
Please find below a selection of sites where you access home learning activities. Some you will already have if you were able to collect your home learning packs, however, they will be updating and adding new activities, tutorials and help.
If I could ask you to spend a lot of time on the basics as well e.g. spellings, times tables, reading and understanding of the books they have read. That will be a great help in keeping your child on track for their return to school. I understand this may not seem as exciting as interactive activities but it is important and when they do hand work in it would be good to see evidence of their understanding of how to spell words previously learnt throughout school and new words.
I am going to add to the class page spelling lists from Year 1 up to year 3 so you are able to revisit. If children can learn the spelling pattern and use consistently that would be a great help.
We have had so many great pieces of homework in about our Roman topic, including detailed models and pictures!
