In this strange situation and until we all get used to it, let your child direct their own learning. This means let them chose what they are comfortable with in the first instance to build up some confidence and resilience with the process. They are learning to learn with you, and you need watch and learn how they learn. The are pro's at this so let them lead the way. Have a look at their pages to see what they are being asked to do. Any supporting ideas or answers I shall put here for you. If there is anything else you need then please let me know.
Children can log in to Accelerated Reader at home using the following link (and your normal school username and password for accelerated reader) to record your reading and take a short quiz about the book.
Parents: You can use your home connect password to track your child's reading progress. You can see their scores, targets and word count.
I don't mind looking over work - just email it. Keep on top of handwriting and presentation as these things all help when they go to high school.
Watch out for punctuation in writing and that they explain answers clearly in English.
I shall put the answer sheets (where there is one) on this page for you so that you can check through or allow the children to check and mark their own work.

Power maths - Children have their independent practice books at home. To support their learning follow the link on the White Rose maths page to the Spring term section of the text book. Complete the activities of the corresponding lesson together first and then children should be able to move onto the practice books themselves.
The White Rose Team have also put together some maths lessons that will correspond to some of the pages in these independent maths books so you can watch these in conjunction with the books. Follow this link to see a range of 5 lessons on ratios. Aim for lesson 1 on Monday, lesson 2 on Tuesday etc. Watch the videos first and then have a go at the accompanying worksheets.
It maybe a struggle but practical science and DT are really great ways of learning and investigating and becomming independent.
I have attached some great ideas here that offer some fantastic oportunities for learning. Children could record their learning in their home learning books or they could take some pictures and create a powerpoint or word document to send to me and I will upload it on the web page.
