Hi everyone, Miss Springhall here...
As we can't be at school at the moment I will be adding activities you can do at home to our various learning platforms including Purple Mash, Spelling and Maths Shed and TTRS. All the links to these websites you can find below. You can also find links to other fun websites which will support your learning at home, these include links to free e-books and audio books so you can continue to read and listen to stories like we did in the classroom.
I included a timetable in your pack so try and follow this. Every day I will create a new post on the class blog (a tutorial on how to access this is below). On here I will outline ideas on what you could do each day. You can also chat and ask questions on here if you need to. I love to hear about what you've been up to so let me know on the blog.
If you have any photos of things you've been doing that you would like to share with the class please email them to me, as I would love to share them on this page.
If you have any questions at all, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
