We propose that for Years 1 to 6 on a daily basis there would be:
- A maths activity
- An English activity (varied between – Comprehension, writing & SPAG)
- A piece of topic work (varied between research and some other type of work – across the foundation stage)
- Reading (30 mins daily) – KS1 Bug club KS2 reading from the KS2 reading challenge – the list of books for each level is here.
Non Stop Action have created some physical activity videos that children can follow at home which we will share with parents,
We aim to have a mixture of online activity and activity that would need to be printed at home to complete, I would suggest that that you make sure that you have ink for printers and paper to print on.
We have already put a new list of websites that have educational value below that parents can also access at any time. These sites have been recommended to us but I must stress that they we cannot be responsible for the content.
Especially good for maths and computing for all ages but other subjects at Secondary level. Note this uses the U.S. grade system but it’s mostly common material.
This site is old and no longer updated and yet there’s so much still available, from language learning to BBC Bitesize for revision. No TV licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.
