The PDF document above is a weekly plan created by your child's class teacher for you to use with your children if you wish to do so.

Alongside the activities on the plan please also encourage your child to complete the following:

Write out 5 different spelling words each day between 8 and 10 times, forming each letter correctly and joining where appropriate. They can then ask an adult, use a dictionary or the Internet to find the definition of each word before writing it in a sentence using the correct punctuation. Each sentence should start in a different way.

Complete 20 minutes a day on TT Rockstars to ensure they know all their times tables up to 12x12.

Enjoy books and reading for at least 30 minutes each day. They should also be listening to at least 2 stories each day, David Walliams is reading aloud one of his books at 11am each morning for the next 30 days.

At 9am each morning Joe Wicks is completing  a 30 minute workout aimed at school aged children for them to join in with.

The Twinkl website have offered all parents free access to all their resources and they have created Home Learning packs for children in each year group. These can be found on the homepage of the Twinkl website under the Home Learning Hub tab.

On the Maths Factor website Carol Vordermann is leading free maths lessons online for children, there are also a variety of activities to complete including a 30 day challenge.

Minecraft are offering free lessons which are downloadable

World book online have release 3000 free audio books for children

BBC bitesize website is continually working with the government to create more online resources to support parents as this situation continues.

Last Friday we sent home an empty exercise book for children to work in, if your child's book becomes full or your child was not at school last Friday and you would like an exercise book then please call into the main office at school to collect another one.

Below is the grid of other suggested ideas and websites for your child to use.

Our Community Response helpline is open

We’ve opened a new dedicated helpline as part of our Covid-19 Community Response. 

We’re working alongside our citizens and local organisations to make sure that together we can all support our neighbours and communities over the coming weeks. We’re working especially closely with local voluntary sector organisations through our partners at Volunteering Kirklees (part of Third Sector Leaders). 

Together we’ve developed a co-ordinated Community Response, including a Kirklees Council helpline and online forms that anyone can use to either request help, or to offer support to others. Our response teams in local places will be matching requests for help with offers of support, so that we can work together to support the most vulnerable in our communities. 

How to request support or offer support 

Anyone can let us know about the things they need help with, or that someone who they are concerned about might need help with. Individuals, organisations and businesses can also tell us about the support they may be able to offer to others.

·       Online forms: Covid-19 Community Response

·       Community Response helpline: 01484 226919

The helpline is managed by Kirklees Direct and opened at 9am on Wednesday 25th March. It will initially be open from 8am to 6pm weekdays. We will review this daily. Citizens and organisations can share information with us online at any time.

Thank you
