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 IXL.com 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.
https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk 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 https://www.theschoolhub.ie 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 email@example.com
