New - Google Classroom
14.6.20 - Home learning will now be on Google Classroom. We will not be uploading any more work to the Google Drives. This is new for everyone so it may take a bit of time to get used to the changes. Please log in to familiarise yourself with the set up.
You should have received information from school about how to log in. If you have any questions, please email the year group teams.
Health and Well Being
Think You Know have created short activities for parents to do with their children to support their online safety. There are packs online with new packs released every fortnight.

The home of great maths games. We have a lot of these in school and love them. Over 40 classic games are included on the website, including Power Lines, Ghost Blasters, Stop the Clock and Table Mountain. Currently, the desktop versions are free to play (downloadable apps cost).

The Family Fit Club have some fun themed workouts on their webpage. Check out the free workout videos.

BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons launched on Monday 20th April. Just select the appropriate year groups for your children and follow the timetable. If the work is too tricky, please select work from an earlier year group.
There are also daily iPlayer Bitesize Daily shows. These can be watched on a Smart TV or online.
Cornerstones Big Ideas - Each week, we will upload a new set of challenges. There are 2 documents. One is aimed at Reception to Year 2 children and the other is aimed at Year 3 - Year 6 children. We like the challenges in both documents so don't feel you have to stick to the ones for Year 3 - 6.
Dear Lyndhurst Pupils
Here is where you can access your home learning whilst our school is closed. There is a suggested timetable for you to follow as well as a useful websites page where we have found some of the best sites for you to access.
Your teachers will be updating your home learning folders on a weekly basis so it is important to keep checking back for new activities.
Remember that we all learn at different rates - if you are finding the work too easy or too difficult then try the work in the folder for the year above or below.
Exercise and mindfulness videos are available in your year group folder under 'Yoga with Megan'.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all back when we are able to.
Ms Beechurst :)
Please remember your parents now have access to individual year group email addresses. As teachers, we would love to see any learning that you have completed at home so please upload pictures and comments to us.
