*Update from Twinkl website: Twinkl now have a Home Learning Hub. Each day you’ll find a new set of daily activities to get involved with. Qualified Twinkl teachers will provide book readings, live lessons, positive news updates and more. We’ll be bringing you activities from our partners too, to help fill your days and offer some much-needed variety. Activities will be listed the day before – giving you enough time to get prepped and set up for the next day’s learning. www.twinkl.co.uk/offer Free Access Code: UKTWINKLHELPS
Chatterpack have kindly created a list of links on home learning for families:
English (please also see above links):
- First News are offering free digital download for parents and may provide some balance in the current climate https://subscribe.firstnews.co.uk/free-downloadable-issue/ First News is a weekly newspaper aimed at 7 to 14-year-olds that aims to get kids talking about the news in an easy to understand and non-threatening way.
Please note, we strongly advise against children having accounts for YouTube or social media accounts, but there is no reason why parents cannot access the links below and/or upload their child’s work on their behalf should they wish.
Alternatively, you can just do this for fun at home and access videos using the second link for the following Jane Considine page, which does not require a YouTube account to access.
- Does your child like to write stories? Jane Considine (Primary English Expert) has a live broadcast at 9:45am where she announces the focus of the day. Children then return for her second livestream at 10:30am where she will do a short teaching session and issue the task. Adults can then share their child’s work on social media using the hashtag #SuperSentenceStacker. Jane will them review the submissions and put them together to make the full story and she reads it out as a class reading session at 3:30pm.
