Home learning 4th May

Take a look at what the activities are for the fourth week of our home learning.

The same as last week -Please login to Purple Mash and MyMaths weekly to see the tasks for this week. I have included a timetable of activities for you to look over which 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. The ‘afternoon’ is left free to complete some of the challenges below or for brain breaks. These skills are best revisited every week to develop the skills over time. I have also set some challenge activities which include doing some research about VE day. I will continue to answer any queries on My Maths, Purple Mash or through Class Dojo’s. Please click the link to see the key skills table. I will be updating the key skills table next week and will set some new skills for English and Numeracy so please practise practise!
