Top Tips for Parents: Safety Online During Remote, Home Learning.
Epic is a fantastic online library. It is free until the end of June. I have set you all some books to read but then you can look around the whole library and choose your own books. There are 'read to me books' that read to you! There are audio books and films too. I can see who has been on get Epic and see which books you have read and how long you spent reading.
As it is an American website the class system is different. Grade 3 in America is the same as Year 4 in the UK.
I hope you enjoy reading the books available on EPIC.
Our class code is qnd1545
An Hour of Coding
As this is an American website choose the Grade 2 to 5 activities.
Feedback on your work.
I would love to see some of your maths work on Time.
It can be from this week or last week. You could send in one sheet - Hot, Hotter or Hottest or the whole workbook.
Just take a photo of the whole page and attach it to an email. Please include your child's first name in the email so I know who did the work. I will then give feedback by email. The work will not be put on our web page, unless I ask for specific permission from the parent sending the work because I want to use it as an example of good work.
Please send your work to email@example.com
Please make sure to title the email JELLYFISH.
