Dear Parents / Guardians,

I hope you are all well and keeping safe during this uncertain time. I have found some educational websites which the children can use to support their home learning packs.

Twitter page - Blakeleymiss 

The children can tag the class page, on twitter, to show what they have been doing.

Squiggle Park Dreamscape  https://www.squigglepark.com/dreamscape/

This is an online game which involves the children being asked different types of reading and comprehension questions. We haven't used this in class yet as I have had only a few children to test it. I have created a log in for every child. I will be in school Friday 3rd April and available to answer the phone for children who need their log in. It is an American programme however some of the concepts are relevent to our curriculum.

Things to Remember

  • P.E. kits – remember PE is every Thursday.  Please ensure all children have a full PE kit in school.
  • Children must have their reading book in school every day. We recommend that you listen to your child read on a daily basis; this can be recorded in their reading diary.
  • We also encourage children to read a variety of different texts and therefore it will benefit your child if they read story books of their own choice, non-fiction books, newspapers and magazines etc (these can also be logged in their homework diary if you wish). We aim for every child to read to an adult at least once a week at school and books will be changed once the children can confidently read their book and fully understand it.
  • READING COMPETITION – Don’t forget the more signatures in a reading diary means the more chance of winning the school reading competition.  The children can get a signature in their diary from an adult at home, when they have read ANY text.  Once they have 60 signatures their name goes into a pot and they can do this multiple times; ensuring they have more chance of winning.  Last year’s prize was a KINDLE!
  • Homework and research will be given out on a Monday.  Please return these on a Friday; to be marked over the weekend.
