Kingfisher Class Home Learning Resources

Following the announcement of school closure, we have outlined below a selection of tasks which can be completed in the blank exercise book provided or on a computer/electronic device. We have also provided a list of websites with some useful resources/ideas. 

The home learning tasks can be found in the Learning Grids below. We suggest children choose daily learning tasks from the grid. Tasks will be linked to the year group expectations and the curriculum focus for the term. We appreciate that some tasks will take longer than others, and in this case the amount of tasks completed each day will be at the discretion of parents. Our expectation is that most tasks on the Learning Grid will be completed by the end of the week. There will be a new weekly Learning Grid every school week. 

Enjoy the tasks set and don't forget you can complete some fun and creative activites designed at home too! We will look forward to seeing/sharing the work they have completed when school commences again.
