Blakeney’s Week Ahead Monday 14th December

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well. If you are self-isolating at home, you can keep up with what we are doing at school by following the daily timetable of work as set out below.

Times tables notes: Please remember that you can login to ‘Tackling Tables’ to practise your times tables. You should be able to find premade flash cards on that website. Please email me if you have forgotten your login details for the website.

Education City notes: If you go to classwork, there are three folders where you can take assessments in Maths, English and Reading. After doing the assessments, Education City will then provide you with revision work that is designed to meet your individual needs. That’s right, by doing the assessments, the activities provided will be tailor made just for you!

Printing notes: Problems with printing? You won’t need to print anything off if you don’t want to. You can do all the work by looking at it on the computer screen and taking notes in a notebook or on paper.

Feedback: Remember to send a copy of your work to me by the end of the week or daily. This can be done by sending a photograph or attaching a document to
