Easter Holidays w/c 6th and 13th April

Over what would have been the Easter break, we would like to give the children the rest they would usually have had from academic learning. In place of this, there is an activity bingo to complete over the next two weeks to keep you going! Please continue to send pictures of what you are getting up to!

Ashbourne Primary School Easter Egg BINGO

Daily activities we would really like the children to continue with:

  • 10 minute daily read – this is essential to ensure your child continues to make progress in reading. Reading aloud and with an adult is so important to develop fluency and understanding, and to ensure your child does not fall behind. This can be a book from school or home, a magazine etc.

  • Practise spellings from last half term (new lists for summer 1 will be sent out after the holidays).

  • Regular play (not necessarily daily) on Times Table Rockstars – times tables up to 12 x 12 must be learned by the end of year 4. Times tables knowledge underpins so many areas in maths from written methods, to fractions, statistics, measures and shape.

More home learning sites:

If you would prefer to continue with a more structured approach for the next 2 weeks, Twinkl has a Home Learning Hub which has resources for every day and a daily suggested timetable planned out for you. Aim for the 9-11 section. https://www.twinkl.co.uk/home-learning-hub
