In the wake of recent events, the Education Department has set up an online site called ‘Learning at Home,’ for those at home during these times. Resources are available across all year levels and many learning areas. https://www.education.wa.edu.au/learning-at-home
Also, keep an eye on the blog in the near future for any additional work for the students.
In addition, we encourage all children to log on to Literacy Pro Library, where you will find a number of books available for you to read. We will be checking Literacy Pro daily to see who is still reading and completing quizzes.
Typing Club – You will find a link to Typing Club on the Wattle Grove Blog. Create an account and try to spend 30 minutes each day practising typing. Touch typing, while difficult to learn, is a very valuable skill.
Writing Activities – We encourage you all to write for an extended period of time at least once or twice a week. You may choose to write a narrative or persuasive text. Remember to plan your text before you write, and edit and up level when you have finished. Ask a member of your family to read your text and give you feedback. Pobble365 is a fantastic website to help with your narrative writing. Try to focus on your figurative language.
Times Tables – Keep practising your times tables and challenge others at your house!
Check in regularly at the WGPS blog. There are a lot of links that will direct you to a number of educational sites.
Reading - Ensure you are reading for at least 30 minutes a day. Choose a book at your level that you think you will enjoy and read away! Reading is one of the most important activities you can be doing over the next few weeks.
Study Ladder – I have set up a Study Ladder account for you all. Usernames and Passwords have been created for you. Once you have logged in, click on the ‘My Individual Program’ link, where you will find a number of set tasks. Have a go at the set tasks and I will add things daily for you to complete. Click on the link to see your username and password. It is very important that we only log into our own accounts and do not use the details of other students. Studyladder Logins
Remember – wash your hands, distance yourself from others and stay home as much as you can.
Look after yourself, and each other. At Wattle Grove Primary School and as a broader community, we are all in this together.
