Welcome to Class R

Home learning

Below is work for children who are learning at home due to Coronavirus. 

This will be updated regularly by Mrs Mallett. 

She can be contacted on l.mallett@carltonminiottacademy.org .

Please also join us on Twitter @CarltonMiniYR

Please see the timetable below which contains a suggested programme of work for the first week. 

Mrs Thornton had the great idea that the children should get up and put their uniform on as usual for home school time!

Please use the book we have sent home to record the activities that your child has completed. Photos would be great!  

It is also to be used by your child for drawing and writing.  Please rule lines for your child to write on.

I have included web-links and downloads for you to use. 

However, please remember that children of this age learn best by playing and exploring, through active learning and from opportunities to think critically.  Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any help or advice.

Good luck and stay safe.

Physical Development

Joe Wicks is doing a daily workout for kids at 9am every day.

The children and staff who are still at school will be doing this every morning and so will I !  Maybe you could too.

Joe has vowed to get children "moving, feeling energised, positive, optimistic."

Joe said: "I'm going to do a live workout called 'PE With Joe' on my YouTube channel The Body CoachTV.

Alteratively, you could practise ball skills, learn to skip with a rope, learn to hula hoop, ride your bike or go for a jog. 

Try to do something every day.  NHS guidelines suggest at least 60 minutes per day of moderate intensity physical activity.

Weekly timetable

We spend every Monday morning in our wildlife area.  We call this Muddy Monday.

We can supply all the children with wellies and waterproofs but ask that, when the weather is cold, parents provide extra warm layers and hats and gloves.

PE is on a Wednesday(dance) and a Friday (small apparatus skills).

Please ensure that all PE kit is clearly labelled with your child's name.  This term PE will be indoors so the children just need shorts and a T-shirt.
