WEBSITES FOR HOME LEARNING
Free Parental Access to Twinkl (KS1 and KS2)
Go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer. This is the quickest and easiest way for parents to get set up. Enter the code CVDTWINKLHELPS.
There are a number of really helpful guides, designed for parents, for different areas of the curriculum. There is also a dedicated Parents’ Hub which contains hundreds of educational activities designed for use at home.
For parents with children in EYFS, take a look through our EYFS for Parents area to find some really useful guides and activities to share.
For primary-aged children, take a look at our 5-11 area. Again, this was created with parents in mind so it’s filled with guides and information about what children should be learning in each year group, for each curriculum area.
You can also find Home Learning Packs from Year 1 to Year 6.

WORK FROM MISS SMITTON
WORK FROM MR SPENCER
Using pencils draw an object from your home.
Look at the direction that the light is hitting the object.
Make the side where the light hits, lighter and the other side darker with shading.
This will help your drawings to look more 3D.
Think about the shape of the object, shade your object using lines that follow the shape – i.e. curved lines for a curved object.
Continuing to think about symbols from last week – can you create a symbol that represents our school?
You could use the current one (the rainbow) as inspiration.
Can you include images that represent our values in the symbol?
Go on a walk together and see how many different mammals, birds and invertebrates you can see.
Make a list of the different types of creature that you see.
Can you say why they were suited for the habitat you saw them in?
