Online Maths Lessons with Gareth Metcalfe

Gareth Metcalfe is a Maths teacher and Maths Consultant and is producing daily maths lessons for children to watch and follow online.  He is producing ones aimed at Y5/6, Y3/4 and KS1.  The ones for Y3-6 are being released on Monday 23rd March with ones for KS1 on Tuesday 24th March.  On the website parents are able to join a parents mailing list where he will email support and additional guidance for you to help your child with this learning if needed.

Online Writing Lessons with Jane Considine 

Jane Considine is an Education Consultant and author and trainer for resources for teachers.  Both Miss Bartlett and Mrs Buckland use techniques she has created so the children will have some familiarity with her techniques so this will be most suitable for children in KS2.  She is holding daily writing workshops, at 9.45am on her YouTube channel, for children to join in with.  To participate parents need to sign up to the mailing list on the website to be able to participate in this.

Online Film based Writing Activities

The website litfilmfest is releasing a video every weekday at 10.30am to inspire a writing task on their Youtube channel.  They create films and activities specifically designed to engage children in film based narratives and exciting written tasks.  Other writing challenges can be found on their website:

Ruth Miskin Phonics

The school uses Read, Write Inc to structure our phonics teaching for children in Reception and KS1.  Every day a phonics lesson will be delivered to enable children to continue practicing the phonics they have learnt in school – we really strongly recommend parents make use of this video learning.  The material is delivered based on 3 sets, so please ask your child’s Teacher which would be most appropriate for your child to follow. There is also a wealth of material to support phonics work on the Facebook page ‘Ruth Miskin Education‘.

Radio Blogging

This is a bit of a sneaky entry onto the video page – as its actually a radio channel.  A group of educational consultants have joined together to create a radio station for children to listen to and contribute to – they can get their work read as part of the radio program.  As far as I’m aware, the plan is that this will be on throughout the school day!  So it could provide lots of activities and interest.
