Our School will not be going where the path may lead, but will go instead where there is no path and leave a trail

Learn From Home Elm

An Elm class video tutorial page with worksheets is available at: https://barrow1618school.co.uk/learning-from-home-video-elm 

Phonics/Reading

  • Everyday, there will be a phonics lesson posted on Ruth Miskin's Youtube channel. Follow this link to access the lessons, which will each be available for 24 hours: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

  • Please ensure that your child reads either their school book or should they complete it, a book of their choice for 20 minutes. I understand that parents/carers may not have the time to listen to their child every day and so even if your child reads to their self, this would really benefit them.  Make use of your reading at home chart so that on your child's return to school, they can redeem lots of extra Dojo points! Inside your child's learning from home pack you will find a list of question types to ask your child about their book.

P.E


  • Could you help out with some gardening? Gardening can be very physical and it is therefore, a great form of exercise. 
  • Design your own workout for a family member or friend. Make sure you test it out!
  • There are lots of other ideas on: https://www.energizestw.org.uk/primary

This half term, our topic is ‘Beside the Seaside’. 

  • Have you ever watched a Punch and Judy show? These shows used to be really popular at many seaside resorts. 

    Could you make your own puppet(s) and put on a little puppet show at home?

  • How can you stay safe on the beach? Going to the seaside is so much fun but it’s important that you know how to stay safe. Either write some seaside safety rules or create a ‘seaside safety’ video, in which you explain how to stay safe on the beach. This video clip/website might be a good place to start: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/top-tips-for-staying-safe-at-the-beach
