- Coram Life Education SCARF – Harold, the happy, healthy giraffe mascot, will be posting a daily blog: Harold’s Daily Diary! Each day he’ll be giving children positive, fun messages about what he’s doing to stay happy and healthy while he’s off school, separated from his friends. He’ll invite the children to join in with activities he’s doing. He’ll be giving children ideas for how they can get a routine going for their day, including the things we all need to do to live a balanced, healthy life. These include: taking regular exercise, being creative, helping others, connecting with others – in ways that are safe and mindfulness – learning to enjoy the moment, here and now.
- Hit the Button – Quickfire maths game. Concentrate on: Number Bonds to 10, 20 and 100 (in tens), doubles up to 20 and halves up to 20.
- NumBots – A maths game accessible using Times Table Rock Star login details. This is a new game that we thought would be good to trial in Year 1 during this period, so, if you do have a go please let us know what you think! The game focuses on addition, subtraction and number bonds and encourages speed just like TTRS. It is robot themed and children unlock levels, choose and upgrade avatars, earn coins and stars. There are two modes: 1. Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and subtraction so it features more diagrams, shapes and question styles. 2. Challenge Mode – the emphasis is more on speed of recall of key facts, like number bonds to 10, doubling small numbers or adding & taking away in your head.
We’d love to see the children’s work through photographs on Class Dojo!
