HOME LEARNING UPDATE - 2nd June 2020 CK
Please follow this link to lessons for all year groups from Reception to Year 6:
If your child has sensory Special Needs, you may find the link below, useful.
Head Start Maths and English Learning Activity Booklets
(added to school website: 14/05/2020)
We often use Head Start resources in school, so children should be familiar with the layout and style of questions given. It would be lovely to work through a few pages each day, allow your children to have a go independently and then work together to find the answers. (There is also an answer booklet for the adults! )
Your child has their own log in for the following websites:
All of the above websites have activities for your child to access for reading, writing, mathematics and phonics. We often use a website called Top Marks, which has a mathematics page, and an English work page. There are activities on there that your child can access, to help keep them on top of their learning at home.
In science we have really enjoyed planting and looking at seeds and how they grow and change. In the coming weeks your child will bring home a seed that they have planted. They are to look after it to help it to grow and complete a seed diary whilst they are at home with their seed.
When we return to school, the children can bring in their plant to show us how much it has or has not grown and talk about their seed/plant diary.
Geography and History
If your child is able to, then researching the following would be great to do from home:
Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria
Rosa Parks and Emily Davidson
The seven continents - animals that live there, food that is eaten, what the weather is like there etc.
Maybe your child can make a poster showing what they have found out about the topic they chose, they could make notes and bring these to school to share.
Reading and Writing
There are lots of things that you can do at home to practise reading and writing.
Why don't you keep a daily diary and write about what you have done each day at home?
How about accessing Halton Library via the free app 'Borrow Box'. You need to be a member of the library and use your membership number to register and you will then have access to hundreds of free books online (both audio and e-books).
Have a look at the following links for some interesting things to read and reading games:

There are also some fun activities on the website.
(added to school website: 07/05/2020)
We have been looking at farm animals during the spring term. Why don't you draw some of the animals you already know how to say and write the Spanish name for them too?
The PowerPoint we have used in school for farm animals is below.
In the summer term we will be looking at how to talk about the weather and also the names of some sea creatures, the PowerPoints are below for these too. It would be wonderful if you had a look at them and were able to tell me about them when we are back in school.
You can make up your own games. Test your families on the new vocabulary, play snap, play splat, make your own flashcards with the new vocabulary, stick the words and pictures around your house on post-its.
