The library has a range of book banded books available for children.  If your child has not been accessing books, start them on something they feel comfortable with – a yellow or blue band initially.  This will increase confidence in reading. If you do not feel comfortable going into the library at the moment, there is an additional service available free from Warrington library using e books and audio books 

Use your existing membership card to access these services. If your child is not currently a member, it is free to join.

Complete a weather chart and look at weather in other countries. Where would you like to go for a holiday? What is the weather like there?


Weather around the world 

Here are some activities for ‘Weather around the world’. You could prepare what you want to say about the country and talk to your grown ups at home about it (as we will not all be in school) – write down what you would like to say first, take a photo of your work and send it to us through Purple Mash.
