Closure timetable. Friday 20th March 2020

Please find a timetable of activities for your child to complete whilst school is closed. Thank you all for your patience during this difficult time. We appreciate that you may not be able to complete all of the challenges daily. The most important part of the home learning is their reading and listening to stories. Please send any home learning to the Year 1 email; year1@howebridge.wigan.sch.uk

 

Please read your child's book every day and enjoy a story book with your child every day. I understand that the children have had the same book for a while therefore, we have been advised that the Oxford Reading Tree website is allowing parents to join for free and access free online books. The link is below. This would be good to look at as we know that your child hasn't been able to change their reading books this week. There is a wide range of books available.
