Home Learning

Hey everyone!

For home learning, we have the permission to use Robin Hood which comes with a weekly overview and it would be great if you could choose a few activities to do. Below is also a menu of activities on that you might want to join in with over the coming weeks. Just little ideas to keep the little people busy 😊

Some others bits that might help:

Sumdog is a fab app to help with maths and the class love it. You should have received the log in. On the Robin Hood scheme it refers to Numbots but we are using this instead. 
Phonics play is also one that we access often, along with phonicsbloom.

If you pop oxford owl in google, you are also able to read a range of ebooks for free ☺️ 
Kodu and Scratch Jnr are both apps that the children are able to navigate and practise their coding skills on. You have also been sent a log in for iCompute which will also support the teaching and learning of ICT.

 

If you would like to share anything that you have done at home then please feel free to send a picture or the document to photos@st-stephens-pri.lancs.sch.uk.

Every week the children will be set home learning tasks in their home learning diary It will normally consist of writing, maths and phonics. Please return on a Thursday and then new learning will be sent home on the Friday. I am sure that your children are going to WOW you with their amazing knowledge. 

Alongside this, the children will also be sent home with reading books. We ask you to read at home with your child and share their book with them. Talk to your child about the story and their opinions.

Thank you so much for your support, I am sure that both you and your child will benefit greatly from this special time together.
