Ideas for activities at home could include things like:


Board games;

Puzzles (noughts and crosses/ squares/ hangman);

The alphabet game - I went to the shop and bought an apple, banana etc;

A project on something they are interested in or a topic that they have/will cover (https://www.churchfieldchurchschool.co.uk/curriculum/);

Learn all their multiplication tables;

The team behind @kaleidoscopeire are doing a daily creative project called ‘Home Club’, also starting Monday.

Story time:

Starting on Monday, at 6pm GMT Oliver Jeffers (https://www.oliverjeffers.com/books) will be reading one of his books every weekday, and talking about some of the things that went into making it.
Also, Mac Barnett (https://www.macbarnett.com/) will be doing the same with his books daily, an hour later.


Audible are also allowing free access to a range of audio books suitable for family listening:


The school term will finish on Friday 17th July 2020 and children are expected to return to school on Monday 7th September.

We hope you have a relaxing and restful summer holiday.
