Other Home Learning Activities

Writing and Literacy

Pobble 365 has an excellent literacy activity every day. Just visit http://www.pobble365.com/ . The website is totally free. If your child completes the activities please take a photo of it, e mail it to the office and we can share it on the website.

You could also encourage your child to write a diary of their time at home.

Reading

Please encourage your children to read while they are at home. You could say they must read for half an hour before being allowed on electronics in an afternoon.

The school is renovating its library area and there are books which we no longer need left outside the front door of school during school hours for you to take and keep. Be kind. Only take a few books per child. More books are being sorted through and there will be others put outside in future weeks.
