During the first 48 hours of self-isolation, it is likely that you or your child may feel too unwell to tackle schoolwork, nor should this be a priority. However, here are some activities your child can do if they are well enough to continue their learning whilst awaiting test results or while their class teacher is putting home learning in place.
- Reading - 30 minutes daily reading and talking about the text. Discuss tricky words, make predictions about the text and retell it. Also, see the year 1 and 2 words list below. Children should be able to read and write as many of these words as possible before the end of year 2.
- Maths - Please see the Maths investigation or the Twinkl activity book below. Also, logon to Numbots for 15 minutes of maths fluency practice and TT rockstars for 15 minutes of times tables practice.
- Phonics - 30 minutes on Teach your Monster to read, phonics bloom or phonics play - look for the phase 5 or 6 activities. https://https://www.phonicsbloom.com/ /https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/
- Writing - Write a story all about your favourite animal, a fact file about them or an information poster about them. Remember to include information about their habitat or diet.
