Please check the timetable for key skills your children should be practising. The timetable will allow you to set a routine for the children and their learning. The timetable is set out over a typical morning, please feel free to alter it to suit your families needs. These skills are best revisited every week to develop the skills over time. The ‘afternoon’ is left free to complete some of the challenges below or for brain breaks. Please note the challenges are NOT mandatory– they are a bit of fun for the children hence why some of them are not always typical of a national curriculum objective.
I have set tasks on both Purple Mash and Mymaths. The Mymaths activities are not always linked to the key skills, I suggest you complete one a day. I will also add that some of the Purple mash activities are not always linked to the weekly key skills- again I suggest just completing one a day. I have set many tasks on Purple mash so that the children have the freedom to pick and chose their activities. Please do not feel that they must complete all that is set on their 2do list.

I know that being stuck at home wasn’t what you expected and during these difficult times it can be hard to focus on the positives. Have a go at making a ‘happy jar’ for the instructions and send me your pictures of your happiness jar. ‘How to make a happiness jar’.
