Suggested Remote Learning Timetable 

It's a good idea to get into a routine like we would have in school. It will help you to feel settled and get your learning done. Here is a suggestion of what your routine could look like. You need to do whatever works best for you and your family. 

Please make sure you are getting plenty of fresh air and exercise-think of all the time we usually get at breaks at lunch! 

We use these Jack Hartman videos to count and be active in class. Have a go at home!

Non Screen Based Topic Themed Ideas to Complete

Even during this period of remote learning not everything needs to be done on a programmable device. Below you will find some ideas for most subjects linking to our topic, Many we would have done this half term had we been in school. Take photos and email them in or tweet (#Kimpton1Australia) how you get on. We would love to see them. You never know, maybe we will also have a go...


These are the rhymes we use when completing our handwriting. The 2handwrite 2do is following these movements when you press play it will show you. You'll just need to say them as the pen moves.

Sound Mat to help with spelling.

Often parents are not sure what words they should correct in their child's work. Here is the list we would work from. If we saw a child had spelt one of these wrong we would show them how to spell it correctly and ask them to practice it 3 times.
