I have created a class login for Oxford Owl. This will allow your children to continue with their series of school reading books and to complete quizzes too.
This is the link to the website: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/
In the top right-hand corner, you will see 'My Class Login'. Click on this, and the username and password are as follows:
If you can't find your reading books on there, or fancy something a bit different, feel free to read some of the other amazing books available on the website.
This is the link for you to complete your reading book quizzes online, just as you would in school! Quizzes are allowed to be completed between 8:45am and 3:15pm. Children know they must only complete a quiz if they have finished the book and have read to an adult. It doesn’t just have to be their school reading book, it could be any book they are reading at home (providing there’s a quiz on it).
They should know their login, but if they’re not sure just email me!
This website contains lots of different stories, quizzes, games and activities! Plenty to keep you busy if you run out of stories at home!
Here is an example of a story map that was created with my Y3 writing group for the story of Rumpelstiltskin.
Challenge: Can you create a story map for a book that you have read at home? Add actions and practise telling the story to your family.
Here, there are hundreds of children's poems that you can read and enjoy as a family.
Challenge - Can you write your own poem about a person or activity in your home?

Every morning at 9am, Joe Wicks is providing a 30 minute workout for the whole family. Don't worry if you don't make it there for 9am, you can watch it at a later time. This would make a fantastic start to your day, whenever you're ready, to help you get up and go! (I have heard that it was all a bit much for Mrs Standen and Mrs Llewellyn though! )
