We work hard to support children’s learning outside the classroom and recognise that technology provides an incredible opportunity to support work in class and enable children to develop very important independent skills and habits.
We have invested in a number of subscription-based online tools that will enable your child to continue learning at home with the aid of a computer, tablet or smartphone. Below are some of the best of these tools.
Read Theory is a wonderful tool to help children develop their reading skills, with short comprehension based activities and a wealth of topics to learn about. After an initial assessment, your child will be given texts to read appropriate to their reading level.
Manga High is a wonderful tool for learning mathematics, fully paid for by FROSTYs. After logging in, children can click the ‘wand’ tool and be given challenges and games that suit their needs. Going for ‘gold medals’ is the highest you can achieve (although be warned: this takes perseverance and effort!) You can also search for areas that you need to improve on and play brilliant games that support your learning! (NOTE: our school code is 68218)
Times Tables Rock Stars is all the rage at St. Teresa’s at the moment. Choosing your ‘rock’ avatar and then playing a series of games to practise times tables against the clock and other opponents really sharpens your skills. Don’t worry about having them written in front of you while you work. This will only help embed them. We want children to know times tables by memory, without having to work them out. This game really works! Website: www.ttrockstars.com. i have sent out all the login details for your child on class dojo.
