Welcome to our Virtual Learning page. This page will be the place to come during the school closure to find learning resources and home learning tasks set by your teachers. The format of the page may change as time goes on and we get more resources and decide on better ways to lay things out so please bear with us!
On this page you will see our Virtual Learning Timetable. There is a link underneath it to a pdf version for easy printing.
Song of the Week – Take On Me (Epic) – Hidden Citizens
Mytchett Primary Academy Virtual Learning Timetable
Begin your day with a story.
- Take it in turns in your family to read a story out loud to others. We recommend a chapter book for Year 1 and older. For younger children read a different picture book each day.
- Login to Bug Club to enjoy a new book!
Joe Wicks is holding live daily PE lessons each day at 9am to get you moving and keep everyone fit and healthy. Find ‘PE with Joe’ on his YouTube Channel ‘The Body Coach TV’.
Complete one of the Maths activities set by your teacher (see the school website).
Get out in the fresh air wherever possible. Have a healthy snack – at school this is fruit and water or milk.
- For Year 1 upwards this should include regular practice of your next times table challenge. Focus on speed and fluency!
- Login to Doodle Maths to work towards earning a total of 50 stars this week!
Complete one of the English activities set by your teacher (see the school website). This could also include:
- Handwriting practice using the school expectations.
- Spelling practice using your year group spellings
Why not try one of Joe Wick’s ‘5 Minute Moves’ (on YouTube) or BBC Super Movers to get your heart pumping, try some ‘Cosmic Kids Yoga’ (also on YouTube) or play some happy music and have a dance! Try to get outside as much as possible in the garden if you can!
Wider Curriculum Learning
- Work on your wider curriculum activity set by your teacher (see the school website).
- French learning – do any activity set by Mrs Emsden and/or go on DuoLingo
- Watch Newsround or Blue Peter
- Try some mindfulness activities (see ideas on the school website)
This is down to the resources you have at home; painting, drawing, sewing, design and technology, cookery. You can also login to ‘Yumu’ (Charanga) to enjoy some Music learning!
What can you do to make a positive difference to other people today? For example, set the table for tea, cook together, hoover, help to wash up, empty the dishwasher, write a letter or phone grandparents. This is down to your family expectations and may need some help initially to example what to do and in setting up a rota.
