Hello Quick Thinkers! 


From today, Wednesday 22nd April, we will be making a change to how we learn online at home. 


We will be using the National Academy from now on: 


So, what you need to do is to go to the website, select Year 1, and follow each lesson from the beginning. 

For today, can you please start at Week 1, lesson 1. 


There are lots of different lessons for you to have a go at, all taught by a pre-recorded teacher. 

Alongside this, I will still be posting some extra activities for you (you're not getting rid of my that easily!). 


Can you all still making sure you're logging into Reading Eggs every day, please!


If you need anything, have any questions, or just want to say hi, please follow our Twitter page - @QuickSTM


Missing you all lots!

This may take 10-15mins and can be led by an adult or a child. There are weblinks included for suggested music to use but, feel free to choose your own if you would prefer, and a suggested activity for afterwards.  Top Tip: give each person a chance to pause and speak without interruption.
