Mrs Wynn's assembly
Welcome back to Home Learning.
Thank you to everyone who completed the feedback form about Home Learning. We have taken your feedback into consideration and you will notice that the format is now somewhat different.
Many people requested the learning to be ‘chunked’. You will see that we have prioritised Reading, SPaG, Writing and Maths and that there is a daily slide for these activities. These slides are blue.
Towards the end of the Home Learning pack you will find some suggestions for wider-learning activities. These could be completed throughout the week, if you are able to. These slides are peach.
We also now have access to Big Cat books online. In the slides, you will find information about how to access these.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems and we will try to help you if we can.

We hope everyone is safe and well. Over the Easter holidays we are not going to be 'setting' home learning tasks. We hope you can use this time to play, cook, create, relax and have fun! If you are celebrating Easter or Passover, we hope you have a lovely time.
We have uploaded some booklets with Easter, Passover or general activities, if you were looking for some ideas of something to do. There is no expectation for anyone to do any of these. These are suggestions put together by teachers for anyone who wants a few ideas all in one place.
We have tried to choose activities that are straight forward, low prep and would appeal to children of different ages (for those who have siblings). Feel free to explore any of the links we put on a few weeks ago if you haven't had time to do so yet.
We hope you have a wonderful Easter break.

We hope everyone is safe and well.
To clarify, the main learning will be directed through the Home Learning PDFs uploaded weekly. We are aiming to upload the next week's learning before the weekend so there is an enough time to have a look through and plan the week ahead.
In an ideal situation, we would advise to complete one activity for each subject a day. But, we know that everyone's situations are different. Please prioritise the PDF and spread the learning over the week to make it as manageable as possible.
We are trying to include some links to some printable resources but we are aware that not everyone will have access to a printer. It is an option for those who would like it, it is not a necessity.
There are additional pages for links to some non-curriculum based activities that we hope you will be able to access at some point. These are just additional fun ideas, if and when you have time and are completely optional. They are good resources for families who have children of different ages as it's something they can do together. For example, stories with authors, science experiments, draw-a-longs with illustrators, projects and so on.

The Kids Should See Things
Keeping your children up to date with the world around them. This will create opportunities for you to talk to your children about the news.
Storytime is important. Children learn so many life and social skills by participating in storytime. Storytime also broadens their vocabulary and their horizons.
Storyline Online, brought to you by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, is a YouTube channel where celebrities like Chris Pine, Oprah Winfrey, Kristen Bell and many more read stories that your children will love. Each video also has moving illustrations from the book to keep your children even more entertained.
