Learn From Home Ash
Regular updates and improvements will be coming to this page.
A new Ash class video tutorial page with worksheets is available at https://barrow1618school.co.uk/learning-from-home-videos-ash
Ash Class, you have worked amazingly hard over the course of the year and it is important that you keep it fresh in your mind and keep on practicing those new skills. I know that loads of you already do lots at home with Mathletics, TTRS, spellings and reading.
The links, ideas and activities on this page can help you to learn from home. There is enough here to keep you busy for around 5 hours a day. Here is an example timetable of how you could organise learning from home:
- 30 minutes reading
- 15 minutes times table
- 15 minutes spelling, grammar, punctuation
- 15 minutes handwriting
- 1 hr maths
- 1 hr writing
- 30 mins Science or RE
- 30 mins physical activity
- 1 hr topic project (history, geography, art, DT, music)
Twinkl has produced some home learning packs that cover a range of areas, you may find here useful.
