Home Learning during school closure

 

The Family Information Service has also rounded-up all of the educational and fun resources they could find by ages and topics for families staying at home. They have put this on their Family information service Facebook and Twitter pages.

Phonics:

Here is a website that offers free phonic based comics. It's probably more aimed towards EYFS/KS1 but may be appropriate for some children in KS2
 
 
Art:
 
There is an american Illustrator from Harptoons publishing, who is conducting Facebook live drawing along sessions at 6pm (UK time) each day. He creates incredible cartoons using simple easy to follow techniques, which would be suitable for children across our school. All you need to join in is a pencil and some paper.
 
 
You’ll find lots of draw along lessons on Instagram and Facebook from famous illustrators. Rob Biddulph (Show and Tell, Odd Dog Out) and Nick Sharratt (illustrator of the Jacqueline Wilson books) regularly post videos.
 
Don’t forget music too! You could make a pop video or just sing your times tables.
 
History:
 
Adam from Primary History Workshops, who regularly visits Hateley to conduct his phenomenal history workshops is creating some free educational videos during school closures.

He will be creating videos on a range of different topics ranging from the stone age to the world wars. He'll be sharing some of his fantastic resources and providing guided tasks for children to take part in. Check out his introductory video below:

Maths:
 
We encourage parents to continue to use Times Tables Rock Stars during our time off. This will be helpful in keeping multiplication facts fresh in the children's heads! We have also signed up to Numbot, this is an additional feature of the Times Tables Rock Stars company with a focus on number bonds. You can access this with your original Times Tables Rock Stars username and password but you will need to go on the Numbot website (https://play.numbots.com/#/intro) or download the app. If you are unaware of your child's username or password or your child has forgotten, we can send these to you via Class Dojo.
 
The White Rose Maths Team (which is the maths scheme used throughout our school) has also prepared a series of five brand new maths lessons for each year group. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully at home.
 
Reading:
 
It is important that you read with your child every day. Epic reading is free for 30 days if you want to take advantage of this.
  
 
If you have a Sandwell Library card you could also benefit from using Borrow Box to download ebooks and audiobooks. You can check out the app on ios or Android.
  
Audible are also sharing a whole collection of children's stories to listen to right now for free, for as long as school is closed. Use the link below to sign up for free.
