Keyne Additional Work

The schools platform for communication and home learning is ClassDojo where our daily work is posted. You may, however, use this class page for additional resources and activities.
Useful Resources - Phonics games. Year 1s please focus on Phase 4 and 5 and Year 2s on Phase 6. - A free E-Book library and educational activities. - Times table practice. Please contact Mr Cornish for your child's individual login. - NumBots is from the creators of TTRockstars but is focused on number bonds and addition and subtraction. Your child's TTRockstars login should work for this. - Games, video tutorials and home learning packs for most subjects including SPaG, phonics, English and Maths.  - A game to help children learn to read. This would be more suitable for children not yet on Accelerated Reader. - A great resource which includes video clips, games, and learner guides for pretty much every subject and topic you could think of! - A phonics YouTube channel. Year 1s focus on flash cards and digraphs and trigraphs. Year 2s focus on grammar. - The creator of Read Write Inc's YouTube Channel. This includes videos of flashcards to join in with (Set 3 please) and training videos for parents and carers. - Yoga and mindfulness for kids. - "Front Room Farming" from the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association. - Downloadable resources from Newquay Zoo.
