Listen to a story! 

For as long as schools are closed, audible have a collection of stories free to stream to your laptop, tablet or phone!

Experience the circus!

Catch up with Harold!


There are now new activities that have been set on PurpleMash and EducationCity for you to try! The great thing about EducationCity is that the activities can be completed online or printed as a worksheet to complete by hand. After Easter we will be uploading weekly activities for you to have a go at and some of these will be related to our exciting new topic which is all about food (yum!) so keep your eyes peeled! 

Please find below a list of free recommended websites to look at with your child:

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ - It would be great to recap all Phase 3 sounds using any of the activities on the site and to recap/learn all of the Phase 5 sounds. 

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/welcome-back/for-home - Use the link provided to load the Oxford Owl website. On the homepage click on 'Browse e-books' and then select the age group 5-6. Now you can browse the library! To select the appropriate level for your child (the book band colour that they were working on at school) click on 'Levels'. A drop down bar should now appear with 'Book Band' as an option. You should now be able to click on this and select the books that match your childs reading ability. When your child has completed all the books on their book bank level challenge them to try a book on the next level! Happy reading! 





During the "lock down" it can be very difficult to juggle everything. Many families are struggling to find a new "normal". It is easy to feel like you are alone in your stress and worries but I think it is safe to say that everyone (in their own way, in their own individual situation) will be finding the new way of life challenging. Most of us have been bomarded with a huge amount of information while trying to adapt (and help our families to adapt) to a new way of being. 

We have purposely made all of the activities and links suggested for home schooling optional to allow for different family circumstances and avoid adding any unnecessary pressure to an already pressured situation.
