Oak Academy has some lovely lessons which are sequential – tackle them in order from the first day of isolation. Some do not involve writing, but developing concepts or skills. For most, children will need pencil and paper ready to draw or write. Children could tackle more than one lesson or write a response to what they hear and learn. If children write poems as a response to these lessons, please share them!

Being at home can be the perfect opportunity to explore time further. In Year 2 we will work to recognise and tell the time on analogue and digital clocks to the hour, half past, quarter to and quarter past. Later we will also look at telling the time in five minute intervals. Making a clock to build these skills would be fantastic, then supporting children to link events to times.

Make your own clock template.
