For ideas of how to keep the children busy while daily life is very different to what we’re used to, the Family Information
Service are regularly updating the GlosFamilies Directory with actvities and advice for parents and carers. This informaton
can be found online at https://www.glosfamiliesdirectory.org.uk/kb5/gloucs/glosfamilies/advice.page?id=8foW0OS9P28

 Take a look at this website and follow the link to home learning resources. For those of you with sensory needs, such as the need to have regular movement breaks and pressure activities, look at the sensory section, it has some good ideas that can be done in the garden.

If your child has an outcome concerning sentence writing on their My Plan such as using capital letters and full stops, commas in lists or ensuring all words are included, this can easily be incorporated into writing tasks set by the class teacher but here are some ways you give your child  a little extra support;

  • talk through what they are going to write before they write it and make sure they can say the whole sentence.
  • give them some key spellings on a piece of paper.
  • Ask 'what goes at the beginning?' rather than telling directly.
  • Keep an eye on how they are doing and read it through with them if there are errors to go over them before they write too much with mistakes.
  • Beware of how long they can concentrate for.  Keep it enjoyable.
  • If you are looking for other writing opportunities to practice this - writing a diary, writing a letter to a friend or instructions for something they have done such a baking or rules for a game. 
 These worksheets and activities address the times tables on most children's plans.  There are many online games such Times tables Rock stars which your children will already know as well as Timestables.co.uk and topmarks.co.uk that have games as well as worksheets. There are many practical ways to reinforce times tables and sharing during day using counters, grapes, when playing and helping around the house. I would suggest that a combination of these activities. Please ask if you need anything more.
