Hello Kingfishers! I hope that you and your families are well and that you are not missing school too much! I am definitely missing you all and I hope and pray that we can be back together soon.
Please find below a list of websites that you can use to access various learning including Literacy (phonics and reading), Mathematics and Science-based activities at home.
Please scroll to the bottom of this page for daily tasks for the children to carry out.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me using the email address email@example.com - even if your child would like to say hello!
Children have been sent home with a 'learning pack'. Please encourage them to work through this whilst they are off school.
The websites are:
Phonics Play is a resource that we use in school and it has lots of different games to help children practise recognition of sounds, blending and segmenting. The website has decided to offer free access to parents during this time and the login details are:
Mathletics is an online platform that school already uses and that most of you will be familiar with. It has various maths concepts for your children to practise. I will regularly set tasks for your child to complete and view their progress. Your child has their very own login details for this.
Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice. Your child has their very own login details for this.
Purple Mash is a fantastic tool that has lots of different activities on for your children to explore. It is used in school to help children with their learning across many areas of the curriculum. To login to the website you will first need to find the school’s login page by clicking on ‘Find my school’s login page.’ Then you will need your child’s login details which they already have.
This is a website that has been set up specifically for school closures. It has stories and activities based around various different topics that link to your children’s learning. More activities are being added to the site every day.
A great website from the makers of Biff and Chip books. This gives access to a huge range of ORT books which the children can read. A very useful site. The login details are:
Sumdog is similar to Mathletics as teachers can set work and view the children’s progress. It has different tasks relating to reading, spelling and mathematics. When your child logs in they will have some ‘quick fire questions’ and they may need some adult support with these. After this they will be able to access the tasks and these are all in game form so the children will really enjoy playing them as well as practising the different skills. Each child has an individual login and this has been given to your child to take home. As with the rest of the online learning websites we do recommend that you play the games alongside your children as they may need some initial help to follow the instructions.
An excellent website with activities to support all areas of the National Curriculum.
