Dear children, parents and carers of Widden Primary School,
Throughout the school closure our staff will be providing work for all pupils.
Most of this work can be completed at home using the internet. Links are provided below to the learning content we are recommending.
We are providing work for Mathematics, Writing and PE in addition to specific Year Group Learning.
In addition to this, class teachers may also set additional work, tasks or projects using Purple Mash. You will need to log in regularly to access this work: https://www.purplemash.com/sch/widden
If you are unable to complete the work online and require paper copies then please inform the school by emailing your child's class teacher or phoning the school office.
For Mathematics we are recommending that children complete the daily lessons provided by White Rose Maths. Our children will be familiar with the Maths Mastery approach they encourage. Each day there will be short video explaining the learning and some problem solving and reasoning questions for the children to solve. Answers are provided.
Please click on the link below to access the daily maths lessons:
For those children who wish to complete additional learning in mathematics, please use the pdf at the bottom of this page. The document contains links to a wide variety of recommended learning platforms.
You will find these lessons on BBC Bitesize each day and on the website using the link above.
You will also find your daily worksheet and answers below.
For Literacy we are recommending the daily lessons provided by English Mastery. This scheme of work has been funded by the Department for Education and is of a high quality. We also recommend the suggested reading books listed by age and the related reading comprehension activities available on The Literacy Shed. The site is providing free temporary subscriptions.

Year Group Learning
Each year group and/ or class will be uploading content weekly for children to complete at home. This is in addition to the daily mathematics, literacy and PE. Please ensure that you are logging on to Purple Mash regularly and completing the 2DOs.
In addition to this, there is an increasing number of free high-quality learning resources for use at home during school closures. We have been sharing these via the school's Facebook page. We kindly ask parents and carers to 'like' this page as it will be updated regularly with useful resources.
