If your child/ren have to isolate, outlined below, are some home learning activities and ideas to complete whilst at home. These will be updated weekly and will run alongside coverage of the curriculum within the classroom so that your child/ren are not missing out on the same learning as their peers.
Please remember, home learning is not expected to be completed if your child is unwell. Rest up and focus on getting better!
There will be English. Maths and some Wider learning opportunities to complete! Daily reading and practice of times tables should also be encouraged!
We will also upload some useful website links for you to visit to reinforce spellings and maths games.
Please contact us via the school office, if you require any extra support!
Best wishes, Otter Class Team
