Activities to try at home

I will aim to put links to useful websites in this section of the site throughout the year.

Woodlands Junior School - a school site that contains links to a vast array of important and interesting areas of the curriculum.

 

BBC Bitesize - useful for revising key concepts for the Key Stage 2 SATS tests - it is never too early to start practicing!

 

 

Here is a website that you could use at home to suport our enquiry into the Anglo-Saxons.  We have used it in class and the children enjoyed it!

 

 

First news is a great news based website for children.  It is, as we have said before, important that the children are reading a variety of text types and this may help achieve that at home.  There is also a sports section for the boys (and some of the girls) that may persuade them to read more...

 

 

In January, it was the 150th anniversary of the opening of the first sections of the London Underground.  The below website uses the iconic underground map to find different animals hidden within, and gives the children the option to find their own.  When we used it in class it was quite a hit!

 

 

I have been looking for easy to use times table sites and this one is worth a go - we could all be quicker at our recall of times table facts (myself included!) and as they are the key to so much in maths it is vital you all know them (or trying to learn them) off by heart:

 

 


Interactive Resources is a must-visit website.  Log-in details and passwords have been sent home to each maths group in Year 5 and 6 - if you have misplaced them then please just ask us for a replacement.
