There are also daily lessons available via the BBC Bitesize link here:

Of course our Harris Primary Academy Orpington teachers will continue to develop and post materials every week for the children via these pages but if your child wishes to try the other materials then we are happy to provide the links above.

 

Year 1 children have been provided with a school exercise book to complete their learning in.

Details will be uploaded onto the academy website regularly each Friday and will include:

 

  • Children should read for 20 minutes every day
  • Children will need to complete one piece of writing each day
  • Children will need to complete one Spelling, Punctuation or Grammar exercise each day.
  • Children will need to complete one piece of handwriting exercise each day.
  • Children will need to complete 1 arithmetic exercise each day and one piece of maths learning each day.
  • Students will have overviews from their History and Geography units from this academic year and can chose a unit to further research and present from each subject. One research piece of homework per week

Purple Mash is an online website where learning resources and provision for your child's year group can be accessed and downloaded. The password and web addresss details for Year 1 are as follows:
