I hope you enjoyed your learning activities yesterday.
Once again we have provided a range for you to choose from, you do not and we do not expect you to do it all. You can choose your own challenge within the activities from;
MUST = an activity you should be able to complete independently
SHOULD = an activity you might need some support with
COULD = an activity which is likely you will need support from an adult or older sibling with
We have then also included some extension activities. These are activities which you may choose to undertake instead of the MUST, SHOULD and COULD or as well as. Which we will continue to do every day.
Every day we will provide English, Maths and Foundation Subject activity ideas.
If you would like some support, feedback on what you have completed or to talk to a teacher about your learning please email email@example.com requesting a call and a teacher will
telephone you either that day or the next between 9.30am and 12pm.
Thank you to all those who have sent us some examples of their learning. We very much enjoyed seeing what you have been up to so please do keep emailing examples in (scans, photos etc) and we will get back to you with some feedback about your learning, sometimes including some next steps or questions.
Below are today’s learning activities.
