Supporting your child's home learning
Last updated: Tuesday 31st March, 2020 at 14:34
We have lots of ideas for you to support your child's home learning! Again, we would like to reassure parents that at this time, there is no expectation that any school work has to be done in any specific time period. The country is in a time of crisis and we need to be addressing that. Please click here to read a letter from Mr Lewin which goes into this in greater detail. Nevertheless, the resources here are available for pupils and parents should they wish to engage in academic activities.
- You could head over to our Maths page to join in our Sumdog competitions, or see some excellent resources for supporting times table fluency and telling the time.
- A visit to our Knowledge Organisers section would enable your child to practise their retrieval of information from the topics taught this academic year.
Mr Carte's challenge!
Mr Carte has compiled a list of daily activities and chores that can be completed at home, in the hope that it will allow the children to learn and develop new hands-on skills. Click here to download the document. We can't wait to hear about the things the children have practised when we come back to school!
Easter Holiday activities
This document contains some great ideas for activities to undertake during the Easter break! Remember to email photos of your ACE work to Tweets@ibstock.leics.sch.uk or Tweet us @IbstockJS so we can share.
LetterJoin - handwriting
The school's handwriting programme, LetterJoin, is available for children to access from home. Our subscription allows for home use. Simply click this link to be redirected, and log in with the username of ib and the password of stock. The website is equally compatible on desktop PCs, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. We think it would be worthwhile that the children continue to practise their handwriting at home.
PE with Joe
At a time where current restrictions limit us to a single, 30-minute period of outdoor exercise each day, PE with Joe (The Body Coach) is a popular early-morning get-up-and-move activity that can be fun for all the family. Simply head over to YouTube and visit Joe's channel, where a 9am live stream each weekday morning promises to offer an invigorating start to the day.
Alternatively, head to the Leicestershire and Rutland Sport website for even more fun and exciting ways of keeping fit and healthy at home.
30-day Lego Challenge
Meanwhile, Mrs Whitehouse invites your child to join in with the 30-day Lego Challenge, which you may have seen doing the rounds on social media. It encourages the children to get hands-on and imaginative by challenging them with a new concept each day! We would love to see some photographs of what the children design and build during the challenge:
