If we have a class lockdown or you are self isolating and home learning due to coronavirus, I will be sending some activities home to keep you busy. For most activities, there will be no need to print them out, just use the book sent home last summer, one from the post office or any paper to write your answers in. Work will be shared on Showbie, so if you need help accessing your child's account, please get in touch. We have used Showbie in class a few times to get the children ready to use it more independently at home when necessary.
There will also be activities set on the usual online sites. EducationCity now has access to all resources at all times, so if there are any additional activities which you would like to try, go for it (and let me know if you find a particularly fantastic one)!
Hopefully we will be back to normal as quickly as possible, but in the meantime please keep in touch, send me pictures, photos and videos via ClassDojo or email and keep checking back here for more activities. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
For RWI speed sounds, please choose 2 or 3 of the speed sounds videos, I have included the video of how the sounds are pronounced to help. This could be used instead if you find it easier.
Life Education Centre
We all enjoy our visits from the Life Education Centre and Harold the giraffe. While we are in lockdown Harold has been keeping a diary of what he has been doing, and has some great ideas of activities you can do while we are at home. If you would like to read it, click here.
The activities below are additional resources for if you would like something extra or something a bit different. There is a set of activities and a guidance document with answers. I will add more as they are released, and extra links as I come across them. If you think there is something which would be good to share, please do let me know.
