Learning at home

Several companies were making their online resources available to families to use at home during lockdown.  Click on the links below to visit some of these sites supporting home learning. Please note, these links may be taken down at any time and they are not controlled by St Margaret's Infant School.

 Please click here for advice and tips on staying safe when working online at home.

Please ensure your child reads regularly at home when they are not in school. They can of course read other books that you have at home once their scheme  books have been completed a few times. Please ask your child to retell the stories they have read and pick out any tricky words they encountered. 

You could make a fun game for spelling tricky words or finding synonyms (different words that have the same meaning) for them using a dictionary or online resource. A book review shows an understanding of the story and characters (click here to choose a book review frame) or have fun creating your own.

To support your children's speech, language and communication needs, the launch of the new Parent Portal was fast tracked. The site has been live since Friday 20th March and provides FREE speech and language advice, resources and activities.  

The site can be found at  https://speechandlanguage.info/parents
