As you may be aware, Wootton Bassett Infant School now also have access to Scholastic Reading Pro which has a large selection of fiction and non-fiction books. Each children has books assigned to their account that relate to their current topic. You can access our Scholastic Reading Pro site here:
Each child has their own account. The username is the first 3 letters of your first name and the first 2 letters of your surname with the year group at the end.
For example Adam Smith in Y1 would be AdaSm1
If you have trouble logging in, please contact Mrs Bowditch (firstname.lastname@example.org).
There is also a guide for Parents in each year groups home learning folder.
Well done to all those children who have been accessing the books and writing reviews. We look forward to seeing more children logging on and reading the books.
We wanted to check that you are all doing ok during your time away from school. There is a different activity for each day of June, you could pick one each day or choose any you fancy. How about designing a new emoji, or drawing a big star and writing all of the things you are amazing at inside? Click here and choose something that will make you smile 😊

Home Learning Term 6 – Week 1 & 2
VE Day Celebrations – Friday 8th May
We had lots of fun and activities planned for this week to celebrate VE Day. Instead, we have put together some things for you to do at home – we hope you enjoy them!
Home Learning Term 5
We hope you all had a lovely Easter and are coping with the continued restrictions we find ourselves in.
We were hoping to be starting back to school today for Term 5 but unfortunately it is not to be. With the beginning of a new term, the teachers would like to introduce new topics for the children which they could start at home and carry on with when we do finally get back into the classroom.
As a result, you can follow the links on the website which will give you a selection of activities based on a theme. These are not designed to be completed in a week but are more of a project that the children can work on over the next few weeks. We would love to see examples of their work as they complete it. Thank you if you have already shared your children’s activities and work- we have all loved receiving it.
We have registered for a maths scheme to assist the children with their home learning Wootton Bassett – Doodle Class code letter for parents
In addition, there are a number of websites that are offering home-schooling lessons and activities and we have added the links below if you would like to use them.
Don’t hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher (via email) if you have any questions or require any help.
We really look forward to seeing you all again soon,
All the staff at WBIS

Year 2 home learning activities CLICK HERE
At school we get the children outside as much as possible and we would encourage you to do the same. You can find some great ideas for Outdoor Activities
And don’t forget you can practise riding your bike, skipping, going for a walk or just running around in the fresh air. Muddy Puddles also has some great ideas.
There are now many celebrities and fitness instructors including Joe Wicks and the Strictly Dancers that are producing online workouts – try searching on YouTube and get moving!
It would also be a great opportunity for the children to start a new hobby- examples could include knitting, sewing, making dens, looking at flags of the World, Kings and Queens, playing and inventing new board games etc. In addition, it would be great for the children to engage in some sort of physical activity such as making up their own dance or obstacle courses.
