Class Wycoller

Welcome to our home learning zone! 

Dear Parents,

I hope this finds you safe and well and I hope that it is going smoothly at home with all of the changes in our current climate. Attached is a document which may help you to plan your child's day.

Each day,   I will post a collection of maths and English work for you to complete with your child. How you plan your day with your child is what suits your household best. 

We understand that it will be difficult for you to mark and help them with their work each day. I have tried to add answers to questions wherever possible.  Let children attempt the task, share the answers and allow children the opportunity to work out where they went wrong.

It would be great to see some photos of children completing tasks at home.  Please E-mail them to me.  

If there are any questions, comments or worries, please E-mail me at the following address:

wycoller@st-philips.lancs.sch.uk

My prayers and thoughts are with you all and your families at this difficult time.

Kind regards. 

Mrs Macdonald

Ideas for physical activities at home; 

Try the following websites:

Any opportunities for the children to do this should be taken. Activities could include:

  • Throwing underarm and overarm to a target (another person catching, a object on the floor, into a cardboard box, a cup etc);
  • Throwing and catching a varity of different objects (tennis balls, footballs, pingpong ball, bean bags, balled up gloves etc);
  • Catching one- and two-handed;
  • Bowling to hit a target;
  • Using a variety of bats and raquets to hit a ball (rounders bat, cricket bat, tennis raquet, rolled up newspaper or magazine). Generally, the larger the surface area and the nearer to the hand, the easier it is to use accurately - so a table tennis bat is easier to hit with than a baseball bat);
  • Jumping over objects from standing or from running;
  • Kicking a ball against a wall;
  • Throwing something into the air and counting the number of claps you can do before catching it again;
  • Running longer distances to build stamina or shorter distances to build speed;
  • Skipping (with and without ropes);
  • Walking along narrow surfaces (could be flat on the floor, but a narrow path marked by two ropes or lengths of string);
  • Copying and / or creating simple dance movements to music or videos.
