Better Together

School Closure Work

*Updated 25th March 2020, all future days work will be found in separate dated pages to the right of this page  ----------->* 

So, we are off school for a period of time - what now? 

On this page, I will be sharing tasks for you to attempt whilst the school is closed. There will be an English, Maths and Topic piece of work for each day. 

I've uploaded a file (at the bottom of the page) of various ways you can encourage your child to stay active whilst the schools are closed too! 

What else can I do do to help my child during this period?

Read with them! There are plenty of websites to support this, https://www.teachyourmonstertoread.com/ and https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/ have lots of games and books for you to share with your child!

Check out https://plprimarystars.com/news/home-learning-activities-school-closures?utm_campaign=1869264_REMAIL%3A%20homelearning_19.03.20&utm_medium=email&utm_source=edcoms&dm_i=3VTU,142C0,344SRU,3WORB,1 for some Maths and English activities. 

Solve some Maths problems: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ is a great place to start! Just select the year group your child is in to find the problems they could tackle each day. 

Practise number bonds! These are the pairs of numbers that add up to 10. 

 

 

 

And above all else, enjoy your time together! Bake cakes, build with lego, have treasure hunts around the house, learn a new language - or some key words, draw, make a play, set up an obstacle course in the garden or pick some different coloured flowers! (I've uploaded a '100 Things To Do Indoors' sheet attached at the bottom of this page.)
