Online plays are being streamed, bread making workshops, live bingo and digital pub clubs. There's all sorts to have a go at!


TimeOut London has temporarily changed its name to TimeIn and is providing some brilliant ways to keep yourself and others occupied through the current global crisis. Please find the link in the text tweet to some things going on today and this week that might be of interest.

Great to see students and staff of Chobham Academy working so hard at home. Keep up the effort and stay in touch everyone.

Accelerated Reader

What else can I be doing to support my child at home?

Your child should continue to read as widely as possible during their time off school.
Students are able to access their AR accounts and take as many reading quizzes as they wish. The teacher will view this activity and provide feedback.

Not all books have got Accelerated Reader tests available online but many do. To see if a book has an AR quiz available, use the website below.

To log on to your child’s AR account from home, use the following link.


There are also a number of websites that offer free learning opportunities for children.
Twinkl is an example of one of these, which is giving parents the opportunity to sign up for a free month. The link can be found below. and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS


Read Write Inc - Phonics

In addition to the home learning tasks that class teachers will be setting, I would like to notify you with an update regarding phonics. As you may be aware, we teach phonics daily starting in Reception all the way up into Year 2. The Read Write Inc. programme that we use will be scheduling live phonics sessions. Starting from  Monday 23rd March, Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons will be live streamed on Facebook and YouTube for children to watch at home.

There will be three short Speed Sound lessons every day for the next two weeks. The films will only be available at the times below:

  • Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am and again at 12.30 pm (Reception)
  • Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm (Reception and Year 1)
  • Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1.30 pm (Year 1 and Year 2)

Please note: the films will be streamed live and won’t be available at other times.

There will also be a film of a poem for Reception and Year 1 children to join in with at 2.00 pm every day. The poems will be available on YouTube to watch again and again.

A great opportunity for children to learn these by heart!

Parents can sign up to either their Facebook page  or their YouTube channel.

Films for parents

Films for parents to help their child learn to read at home with Read Write Inc. Phonics are available on our website and YouTube channel. The YouTube channel will have a quick face-lift to help parents find the films easily. We’re adding a parent film to Facebook every day too.

These resources will be incredibly useful and will hopefully continue to support the learning of reading that children have been doing in school. Once again, thank you for your continued support with home learning.

Real PE at Home 

Real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.

It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from next week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.

There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months. Here are the details to access real PE at home:
