Hello everyone. I hope you are all keeping safe and are in good health.
You should by now all have received a pack that contains personalised reading, writing, counting and calculating targets. (The last few were delivered yesterday if your child did not receive it from school last week). I hope that you have spent some time exploring the games, resources and activities.
To keep your child engaged and focussed on the tasks I suggest that you spend no longer than 20 minutes on any one activity at a time. Once 20 minutes work has been achieved make sure your child has a physical break from what you are doing – perhaps helping with the washing/drying up, fetching something from upstairs etc.
At a minimum 20 minutes should be spent on reading, 20 minutes on writing, 20 minutes on counting and 20 minutes on calculating per day.
Hopefully you will have seen the post about the online Read, Write, Inc speed sounds lessons available for you to access – I recommend that you try to do this on a daily basis also.
As each day passes that we are not in school I will be adding daily challenges and additional activities/tasks that will support learning.
I am already missing the children immensely and will be doing as much as I can to support their learning through the website posts.
Daily challenge 24.3.20 – How many times can you jump up and down on the spot for 1 minute?
