Keeping children active and allowing them to be creative is just as important as other subjects.

Remember how useful everyday tasks can be in helping children with their Maths, telling the time, counting money when planning shopping, weighing food for cooking and baking, etc.
There are lots of opportunities to practice Maths in everyday tasks around the home!
We understand this is a difficult time for families and it can be tricky to keep children busy and occupied all day!
We are aware that parents want their children to continue learning in some way so we have put together a list of websites that you may find useful to help your child with reading, phonics, writing and oral language.
Normally a fee paying website but sign up has been made free for parents during school closures due to COVID-19. It has endless worksheets, games, activities, art ideas, etc. that cover ALL subjects.
https://www.seussville.com/ – games and stories by Dr. Seuss – a favourite with children!
https://www.folensonline.ie/ – parents can now sign up for free, a lot of our books we use in school are on this website.
https://www.funbrain.com/ – Maths and reading skills
https://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/support/learnathome.html – lots of fun activities for kids.
www.worldofdavidwalliams.com – David Walliams is very popular with our pupils, check out his website, he is releasing an audio story every day for 30 days!
Most of the Jolly Phonics songs can be found online and on Youtube – another great way to practice phonics with your child.
Always remember the value of just reading a story with your child and take the time to ask him/her questions about the story, discuss the characters, where the story took place, etc.
We hope we will get to see you all very soon!
Keep checking back here for new activities and websites to help your learning!
We hope all our pupils and their families are keeping well during this difficult time.

We are very proud of all the pupils who received certificates.
