Working From Home (Week 1)

Working From Home (Week 1)

As St. Matthew's has now closed, I strongly encourage you to do work at home. I will continue to update this blog each week with work you can do and things to keep you busy. I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend and are ready for the interesting week ahead. 

News

I am going to be starting a YouTube channel (I am hoping to set it up this Wednesday) to provide a more personal link with the children. I will be uploading videos of our Oak Class pets, the tadpoles, videos of our class chicks and also some 'story time' videos. I will leave a link below. Please share this with other Oak Class parents - it would be lovely for the children to leave comments on the videos and create a little safe place online for the class. 

The first video for you to watch:

Please continue to read your reading book or another book daily if you can and record this in your yellow reading record. I have found that 'Hampshire Library Services' offer free ebooks and eAudiobooks which can be downloaded with a 'Hampshire Library Card'. I have downloaded a step by step guide which you will find at the bottom of this page to help you to download them. Please use this if you can as it is an excellent resource.
