Dear Parents and Children

I hope you are all well and keeping safe.

Thank you for your lovely emails, photos and excellent work photos.

I can see that the children have been busy working through the Maths and English worklists that I posted to them individually in March.  I will continue to update those worklist as they are required.

I have set up a 30 day trial with for Maths and English. It allows each child to work on individual topics in Maths and English. There are a huge variety of topics to choose from.

The children have answered over 2000 questions since they began. Many have received certificates.  I can track their progress. Well done everyone. Oxford Owl has free online graded ebooks for children. I thought that having an optional audio element would appeal to many younger children.

It has a Class log on section available which I have set up.

I am also going to suggest click on the sample activity as it allows you child to do table drills which are fun. It includes addition and subtraction very suitable for first and second class.

I hope these extra website links will make learning fun, also a chance to revise and reinforce work already done.

Please continue to send images of writing, news, maths work. I love to see your work. Please continue to email me if your child has a difficulty with their work, I will do my best to help answer / explain questions, send on extra resources, print outs.

I am adding extra print outs relating to time for First and Second class Maths.

I miss being in school, helping you daily.

Keep in touch,

Ms. Whiteford
