CEDAR CLASS HOME LEARNING
These are the activities for you to do at home.
They will be updated regularly.
We now have a dedicated Home Learning email address that you can use to ask questions regarding your child’s learning whilst at home. Please note that this is to assist you in your home learning and not to answer specific questions like ‘What is the answer to question number 4?’ We are anticipating that you will receive a reply within 48 working hours.
The email address for this is: email@example.com
We are also setting up an ‘Achievement Wall’ to display what your child/children have been doing at home. Please use the school’s email addresses to send us information or photographs of your child’s work. Please put the words ‘ACHIEVEMENT INFORMATION’ in the subject box. We look forward to seeing what they have been up to.
Remember to practise your phase 3 and phase 5 sounds every day if you are in one of Mrs. Dixon's phonics groups. Ask an adult to write some words with those sounds in for you to read. Then you can try writing them yourself!
