Please make use of the Jersey Learning At Home website which contains lots of great ideas and activities. It's here..... https://learningathome.gov.je/
Our expectations for the summer term are as follows:
Spellings- children practice common exception words and high frequency words (in your child's learning pack) for 20 minutes daily. For children that are confident when tested, please learn words with the suffix ion, ous, ed and ly.
Handwriting- use https://www.teachhandwriting.co.uk/route-c-letter-choice-3-ks2.html for both letter formation and joins. We expect children to complete this practice in their home writing books. Quality trumps quantity; no need to write more than 8 lines and try and focus on correct formation and consistency. 5 mins.
Reading- All children to read daily for 20 minutes. Do try and read a selection of fiction and information books. We will also be setting a weekly reading comprehension task to be completed in the home writing book.
Writing- As outlined in the day's plan below. 40 minutes approx.
Maths- Practise times tables and associated division facts daily. Also consolidate knowledge of number bonds to 10, to 20 and 100 daily. Use this interactive 100 square for assistance https://www.primarygames.co.uk/pg2/splat/splatsq100.html
Children have also been given log in details for Times Tables Rock Starshttps://play.ttrockstars.com/https://play.ttrockstars.com/ so please make daily use of this. Our main maths learning foci will be on calculating perimeter and the task will be on google classroom. 40 mins approx.
PSHE- We are moving on to a new unit of learning looking at our relationships with others, in our family, school and in our wider community. We are thinking about the roles and occupations of men and women in our society and, very importantly, what are our responsibilities to ensure that our relationships with others are positive and caring.
Science- As above.
PE- Undertake a daily 7 minute workout https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmq5zZfmIws Make links with your PSHE Healthy Me learning. Google Just dance for kids for other active ideas. Mums and dads, join in too! Keep moving!

- Take breaks, drink lots of water and WASH YOUR HANDS often.
- Give yourself frequent ‘screen breaks’ and do not spend too much time online.
