I hope everyone has been well and enjoyed some or all of the activities from last week. They will remain on the website along with new ideas for this week. Given the fundamental changes in our lives, I must repeat that there is no obligation to complete the activities; just do what you can given the constraints imposed on you. Whenever and wherever possible, support your children with their times tables, spellings and reading. I have also added weekly spellings to expand the children's vocabulary. In addition, I'd be grateful if you would read the attached letter from me to your children.
Even though the Government has cancelled this year's MTC (Multiplication Timetables Check), confidence in remembering and recalling times tables is important, as that knowledge makes learning maths that much easier. To that end, I've attached a list of times tables games - tablet friendly and non-tablet friendly.
I hope the chidlren are enjoying Joe's daily workouts and taking part in mindfulness activities when possible. We also have Get Set 4 PE . Have a look at our twitter @GetSet4PE to view the daily task. We would love to see how you get on with the activities and your feedback, so please share your videos and experiences in the comments.
If chidlren wish to continue with any Home Learning Activities from Spring 2, that's fine. I won't be marking that work but I'd be more than happy to receive examples by e-mail.
House tournaments are still being run weekly on TTR and Miss Gilham will be keeping track of the house winner each week. Another addition is the Get Epic Reading Calendar for April - it's chock full of reading suggestions. If you haven't joined yet, please see the invitations I e-mailed to you. I am hoping to upload my readings from 'Alice in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll, a text we would have read this term. Finally, please see websites towards the bottom of the page - I'm aiming to add as many useful ones as possible. So please keep checking!
As usual, Mrs Jenner, Miss Smith, Ms Dimblebee and I send our best wishes and kindest regards to you and your children.
