Helping primary school children continue their education during coronavirus (COVID-19):
Advice for parents and carers looking after primary school children: While staying at home due to coronavirus (COVID-19), parents and carers will be concerned about their children’s education and the impact of missing school. No one expects parents to act as teachers, or to provide the activities and feedback that a school would. Parents and carers should do their best to help children and support their learning.

If you are unable to complete the activities online complete it on a paper, unfortunately at present this will not be able to be returned to school.
For Maths some Ks2 classes we are currently using Sum Dog to practise times tables and also there is maths training on there they can log into. This will adapt to the ability of your child so dont worry if it is too hard initially it will change to suit the ability of your child. In addition to this to further develop their times tables practise they can also use the J2 Blast app on J2Easy to select times tables they would like to practise and refine. Using the TT blast game.
Also children can work on their spellings that have been set weekly by their class teacher and then also choose from a variety of spelling lists linked to their stage and age.
