This website is really useful and supplies daily maths lessons for each year group along with short tutorials which are ideal to use at home https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/
Oxford Reading Tree has also made some free e-books available during these testing times. This is one of the reading schemes that we use in school, so some children may be very familiar with the characters.
The government has created a useful website with lots of links to home learning platforms to support parents and teachers throughout the current school closures. Please take a look. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-online-education-resources
The topmarks website is also full of really useful interactive maths games that will support your child’s learning. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/
We also encourage you to visit https://www.purplemash.com/sch/stjohns-PE29 to access online learning, and some fun age appropriate games too!
All you need to do is enter your child’s username and password code, which was sent home on the 18th March 2020.
To keep your child active while inside why not try these websites:
You may also have seen that Joe Wicks is sharing a daily PE lesson called 'PE with Joe' on his youtube channel. Take a look and maybe even join in too!
For Design and Technology ideas please take a look at the document on the main class page for fun ideas to enjoy together. Take photos and put them in your scrapbooks so I can see what you have made.
BBC Bitesize is a great website and covers many different curriculum areas (including maths, english, geography, history and science) for you and your child to investigate. It contains interactive games, videos and links which should prove useful over the coming days.
For information about keeping your children safe online, take a look at https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/jessie-and-friends/ which are short videos with the key messages shared in an age appropriate manner. Please watch them first to make sure you are happy with the content and be around to answer any questions your child may have after watching them. Maybe you could then make your own video together presenting the key messages in your own way. You could also create a poster, write a poem, write a story or play and share those in your English book (sent home) or in your scrapbook.
The wonderful author David Walliams is now reading a story on a daily basis for you to enjoy. The website is https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/ Once you've heard it maybe you could write an alternative ending or become an illustrator and draw, paint, collage one of the characters in the story? Use your imaginations!
