 Home Learning 

I hope everyone is keeping well and are enjoying the learning games. I have added a few more games to keep you busy and some different activities to  stop you from getting too bored!

Challenges 1-10 are good for Year 1, Year 2 should practice 1-10 and then concentrate on challenges 11-20- these are tricky! 

https://ttrockstars.com/- more suitable for Year 2's but would suit Year 1's who like a challenge

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ - phase 3 and 5 phonics games suitable for Year 1

Click on learning games -  select age 5-7, then choose Maths or English.

In English I would recommend the 'full stops game' 'karate cats' 'forest phonics' and 'little bird spelling' also 'fish 'em up' for Year 2.

In Maths I would recommend 'placing numbers on a number line', 'blast off spelling', 'number fact families' subtraction grids' 'hit the button', demolition division' 'toy shop money game', 'cuddly toy sale', 'How much left' 'telling the time in words' and 'match the times' (o clock and I/2 past for year 1, to 1/4 hour then to 5 minute interval for year 2) 

When selecting the level for math's games Year 1's need to work on calculating within 20 and Year 2's calculating within 100.
