2. WIDER CURRICULUM
Two fantastic starting points for all subject areas are BBC Bitesize Primary and the BBC Teach website. Here you will find general advice about how to approach home learning, and also thousands of free videos, lessons, and activities for children of different ages.
Planbee also provide excellent teaching resources. They are setting up free online learning sessions for primary children during the current closure. You can register here.
Geography: The National Geographic website is a brilliant place for your child to explore and discover lots of interesting things about our planet: click here for the National Geographic Kids Website.
Science: A range of fun science activities aimed at Primary age children from STEM learning. ScienceMax on YouTube has some great science experiment ideas, he shares ones to try at home and then shows you what they would look like on a large scale. Also check out Alom Shaha's YouTube channel; his book is also recommended - Recipes for Wonder.
Outdoor Learning: All Smarden pupils are used to learning outdoors, thanks to our forest school activities. We are lucky to live in the Kent countryside, where a wealth of outdoor learning opportunities about plants and nature are available (so long as you keep your distance from others). The Woodland Trust has some further suggested outdoor activities here.
Art: If you haven't already done so, then now is your chance to get to know Ricky - also known as CBBC's Art Ninja - his mission is to teach you his secrets and get you creating your own art. Learn more about great art with short clips from the BBC 'Your Paintings' series. Or try this online drawing course for children - in four stages from foundation to advanced.
Digital: Now is the perfect time to learn how to make a stop-motion animation, a film, or even a video game - free guides and software here. And on this site are a series of games designed to introduce children to coding. If you sign up to the Khan Academy, they also offer free introductions to programming, coding and animation.
History: BBC Bitesize offers a wealth of resources at all levels for the study of the past, individually, nationally, and globally.
