From talking to lots of families, it seems that you have all been busy. Learning in these strange and difficult times is important, so keep going! Thank you to everyone who has sent us pictures of their work. These are lovely to receive, so please keep them coming.
As we said last week, our expectation is that whenever possible you do a little of each of the following EVERY day.
- Maths – this is on Mathletics. You should log in and complete the work set for you over the week. If you have lost your log in, just let the office know and we will remind you of it. If you finish all the work set, Hit the Button (https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button) and Times Table Rock Stars (https://ttrockstars.com/ ) can also provide fluency practice. Year 6 also has access to RM Easimaths (https://www.rmeasimaths.com/Easimaths/Account/Login) In addition, Twinkl (www.twinkl.co.uk) has lots of maths resources. All resources are free with the code CVDTWINKLHELPS. In addition, Classroom Secrets Kids (https://classroomsecrets.co.uk/home-online-learning/) also has a wide range of free activities.
- Reading – this is very important, as it improves comprehension, writing and spelling. If you have finished all your books why not try Phonics Play comics? (http://www.phonicsplaycomics.co.uk/) or the books on Oxford Owl (https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/ )
- Writing – letter formation can be practised by copying from a book or magazine. www.pobble365.com is still the best place to start for creative writing, but if you are looking for something differen, why not try writing a fairy tale with a twist – an evil Cinderella and good sisters, or writing from a different point of view – how annoying was Snow White really?
- Creative – As well as new creative activity packs on the web site, there are lots of activities being suggested on line. For music try Chrome melody makers or BBC (https://musiclab.chromeexperiments.com/Experiments or https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2bL2NL6Cwlsj2Cs4BXkvg9X/primary-music) . If tech is more your thing, why not look at Tinkercad which allows you to learn about 3D modelling, coding and electronics? Alternatively, you might want to have a virtual visit of one of the museums. The London museums eg Natural History and Science Museums are full of interesting things (www.nhm.co.uk and www.sciencemuseum.org,uk) and don’t just stay at home- the Smithsonian in Washington https://naturalhistory.si.edu/ or the Louvre in Paris (https://www.louvre.fr/en) also have virtual tours.
Please let us know how you are getting on as we love hearing about what you have been up to and always if you need any help please contact the office firstname.lastname@example.org
