Perhaps try some of these ‘Alternative Fun Options’?

Alternative Fun

Rising Stars Reading Planet

Rising Stars Reading Planet is an online platform that we are using to encourage both reading and comprehension skills at home. 

All children should now have received a log in and can hopefully access the resources online.

I will build some comprehension work into the English Tasks but you may wish to complete extra during your week. Not compulsory. But the option is there.

The link to Rising stars can be found on your log in sheet.

Use these helpful guides below for information on how to use the Rising Stars Reading Planet:
