Welcome to our class page. While school is closed, we still want to stay in touch. We will use this page for information about learning you can complete at home, suggestions of activities and games and to share photos.
While you are at home, one of the most important things you can do is read, read and read again!
Tell a story using stop motion animation. Email your finished results to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is more information about this in my 'Happy Easter' message on the KS1 page - head there to find out what you will need to do.
Packs of Learning
You have all got your packs of learning that were sent home from school. These are designed to last two school weeks.
Each day, try to:
- Read some of your reading book out loud to a grown up
- Complete 1 English activity, for example a reading comprehension or a 'Mr Whoops' activity
- Complete 1 Maths activity, for example a telling the time lesson or a number game
- Complete 1 other learning activity from the grid of suggestions or from your science booklet
There are full lists of all of the English and Maths activities in your pack.
Don’t forget to send us photos of you learning or of your completed work to Learning@thepinesschool.org.uk.
Perhaps you could send a photo of you reading one of your reading books and share a comment about what you are enjoying about the book?
