Home learning activities and advice for Key Stage One:
Here we have prepared a collection of activities, websites and resources for your children to complete if they are at home due to self isolation or a school closure. In the case of a whole school closure we will be sending a workbook for children to record their work in as well as a pack of paper based home learning activities for them to complete.
Australia research project:
Our topic after the Easter break is 'In a land down under!' We will be learning all about life in Australia, whilst you are at home we would like you to complete some research online to find out about the following areas linked to Australia: weather, climate, plant life, animal life, food, culture and landmarks.
You can present your information in any form that you wish, you may want to make a poster or an information booklet using some of the pages in your workbook.
Below is a topic web with some ideas of things you could do for your research project.
Reading, Phonics and Spelling
In the event of school closing we will be sending pupils home with a selection of reading books at their level; it is important that children continue to read as often as possible at home.
Here is a list of web pages where the children can continue to practise their phonics and spelling skills from home.
https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0 On this website your child will need to log in with their active learn information which we have stuck to the front of their home learning books for them. The school code when you log in to this website is: mark.
On this website we have allocated 16 different online activities and games for the children to play linked to grammar and spelling in KS1, as this has personalised log in information we should be able to look online at how children are doing with these tasks.
https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/freeIndex.htm On this website pupils can play games linked to phonics and spelling - we use this in school very regularly so hopefully they will recognise the free games when you open the site!
