Year 1/2/3

Whilst the children are working off site we will not be using this section of the website.  Please see the 'Off Site Learning Hub' for this work- guidance is provided below.

 

The staff in Y123 have created a programme of work to support your child with learning at home. 

Your child has been provided with an exercise book and pencil which they can use to complete the work available on the  Off Site Learing Hub

On the 123 Home Learning section there are activities relating to three focus areas:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Phonics (Year 1 and 2 only)
  • Other subjects
  •  

The focus of this learning is to optimise key aspects of the English and Maths curriculum and take the opportunity to consolidate and over learn key knowledge.

 

We realise that everyone`s family circumstances will be different and we have tried to be mindful of what parents can achieve at home.  The activities provided are not a compulsory list, but more an indication of what we would like your children to complete in order to ensure that your child is maintaining the learning that they have done in school. 

 

You may like to structure the day with a timetable.

 

We recommend spending time doing Maths and English work every day  (this includes mental maths and spelling work as well as the activities provided on the year group English and Maths pages)

 

You then may like to choose one other curriculum area each day to work on, answering the retrieval questions (or some of the questions) and completing one of the tasks.  The retrieval questions can be used multiple times.

 

In addition to this we encourage at least 60 minutes of physical activity (please see the stay active link for ideas) and 30 minutes reading and TTRS (for KS2) and 20 minutes phonics or spelling for KS1.

 

Over the course of the next weeks, we will be uploading daily English and Maths activities for the children to complete. The aim is that these are activities to be completed over each week and these will be supported by instructional videos or worked examples.  There will also be some additional maths fluency, handwriting, key words tasks, and website links that the children can access should you complete the daily task.  Under the ‘Phonics’ tab, you can find some ideas of how to support your child in their acquisition of phonic sounds.

In addition, there will be tasks to retrieve key knowledge taught and projects to do for the other subjects. We have also put some ‘CPS Boredom Busters’ and some active ideas on the website.

 

Please note- there is no expectation that you print work sheets.

 

Should you have any queries do not hesitate to get in touch. We request that all emails go through Miss Scott (jscott@cottenham.cambs.sch.uk) and should not be directed to class teachers. At this stage we will not be able to receive work and mark it- but will welcome seeing the book with work in when the pupils return to school.

Please bear with us while we get to grips with Home Learning. It will be useful for you to check on the page every day to see which new resources have been uploaded.
