We have been so impressed this week with how brilliantly the children have engaged with our home learning projects. It has been wonderful to see how many of the projects have embraced the full curriculum and the children (and parents!) have thought so creatively. Projects have enabled children to write in a variety of forms; research key geography and history facts; use their Maths skills and be creative. Not only have posters and fact sheets been shared but also slide shows and video clips.
Please remember that alongside your child's wonderful projects, Maths learning is also set weekly and children should continue to read daily, learn their spelling and phonics, practice their times tables and key number facts. If you would like to further supplement your child's learning, we recommend BBC Bitesize and The Oak Academy online lessons.
Please continue to ensure your child's learning is uploaded onto PurpleMash. We are really looking forward to seeing the learning produced in next week's projects.
We will continue to provide you with weekly home learning guidance on a Friday.
Please remember, it is important for your child to take regular breaks away from the computer.
