Below are the lessons/activities for this week. Although we are not in school we must continue to work as near normally as possible.

Please make sure you work through the lessons and activities below so when we are together again we are all in the same place in our learning.

Bug Club and Power Maths can be accessed using your Active Learn logins. Activities on Education City are updated weekly which you can also access using the logins for that site.

As always, I can be contacted via the school office or on my email – d.hartley@gf.kwestacademy.com. Don’t hesitate to email and let me know if you need anything to support your learning. I look forward to seeing your completed work.

When you send work please add any comments you may have about how your child/ren managed the activities. Your comments are helpful regarding what activities to use in future planning. Thank you!

Monday

Reading:

Carry on with Bug Club.

Handwriting:

I have attached a set of sheets which show the correct way to form the letters of the alphabet. You can either print them off and trace over them or if you don’t have a printer you can copy the letters from the screen on to paper.

The important bit is that you form the letters following the direction of the arrows.

Letter Formation

Practise for about 10 mins. each day.  It’s not about how much you do, it’s about forming the letters correctly so that when you start to join the letters for cursive writing it will flow.

Phonics/Spellings:

key, donkey, monkey, chimney, valley.

Computing:

Tuesday is “Safer Internet Day”. Imagine you have a younger sibling who has just got their first tablet/computer. What advice would you give them to help them stay safe? Make a poster you could put near to where they sit to use their device to help remind them how to stay safe.

Homework Grid:

Don’t forget there are other activities for you to do on the class homework grid.

Remember, your learning is your responsibility – work hard and don’t give up!

“I can and I will!” said the Little Red Train as it puffed up the hill.
