I just wanted to leave a message to say I miss each and everyone one of you, and hope you are staying safe and well with your families. I have seen some fabulous work including paintings, newspaper reports and some excellent scores on spelling quizzes through Purplemash.

Our themed home learning menus will continue to be added weekly to the website. Each week will be a different theme, but if you would like to spend longer on a theme, that is absolutely fine. In addition to our theme, we have added some basic skills for that week (maths, reading, phonics etc) to the top of the menu. These are things that children should be practising regularly, so spending a little bit of time on these each day will really help. We hope you are enjoying the themes and please share any work with us by emailing email@example.com or on Twiter @ChrissiesSpeke
With many of our children at St Christopher's, as well as other schools around the country, having to self-isolate due to COVID-19 ( Coronavirus) we want to make sure that the children are still learning while at home. To help with this, we have created a sample timetable for learning at home, which you can find below.
We have created a home learning menu around a certain theme, with a selection of activities that you may want to do at home. A new menu will be uploaded each week with a different theme. We hope you enjoy trying some of the activities.
Spelling and Maths Shed will also be updated weekly with different tasks.
Below are English and maths activities that are easy to follow from Hamilton Trust. They will be added each week so that they are there for you if you need them.
In addition, there is also a link to the White Rose website. This is the scheme we use to support our maths planning in school. The link takes you to their home learning page, which has a series of lesson ideas to follow.
Finally, Twinkl.co.uk have a fantastic website that offers lots of wonderful resources and ideas. We have downloaded some of the activities to keep your child(ren) busy and learning while they cannot attend school. You can also find them below.
