Dear parents/carers and children,
We are now 2 weeks into the school closure that was implemented due to the unfortunate circumstances that we find ourselves in today. It has been amazing to see the majority of you frequently accessing Purple Mash, completing work set and holding conversations with your friends over the blogs. Please continue to do this when you can, as it is a pleasure to see the work you’re doing daily, and to hear about your experiences throughout.
Over the Easter period, the usual timetable, that would be on the website, will not continue in the same way. Below are websites/resources that can be used during this time to stay active, both in mind and body, whilst continuing your academic learning. Please use these as and when you have time.
Mrs Brown has also added links to activities that you can do on the home learning page of the website. Please use these to help with generating ideas of what to do over the Easter holidays.
Accompanying the websites below are the spellings for next week. I would still recommend finding the time to focus on these throughout the week if possible.
Thank you for your emails. I’ve really enjoyed corresponding with those of you who have done so over the last few weeks. Those of you who have emailed me over the last two weeks, please try to make this part of a weekly routine. It is great to know that you are all well, and at the same time it’s brilliant to know exactly what you have been up to! With this, the emails can be used to ask questions about work, as well as other school/academic/child related questions. I have received a nice amount of images of the work that children have done. Can I ask that you continue to do this via email so that I can start adding some of them to the class page on our school website.
I will be keeping an eye on my emails over the next two weeks, so please feel free to use this mode of communication if you need to get in touch.
Finally, please keep checking the website for news updates and further resources that you can access. Please take care, stay safe and enjoy the positives out of this situation – spending time with family.
Very best wishes.
Dear parents, carers and children,
In the light of recent world events, the following content has been added to ensure that we have learning opportunities in place, ready for school closures if they happen.
Please see the timetable below for home learning activities. The timetable follows a similar style to that of the school day, and is there to provide a structure and learning opportunities for you.
Please ensure that work done is recorded in the exercise book that you have received, and if you have been unwell, and unable to attend school recently, then recording the work using paper, pads or other books is the best way forward.
Moving forward, underneath each timetable are the resources that may be needed for given activities. They will be headed with the title, lesson and day as to avoid confusion. On the timetable, there are a number of links to videos that can help you with your learning, and inform you or present you with ideas; please use these.
The times table fluency facts and a grid of reading activities have been compiled near the bottom of this page for ease of access - please use these in relation to the times table focus for given weeks and the reading opportunities on the timetable.
Finally, the most recent resources and relevant timetable will be added to the top of our class page each week. Please ensure you access Purple Mash and Times Table Rockstars regularly to attempt the work set.
Home learning ideas
Please take a look at the following websites that can help you with some ideas for home learning. These websites are full or creative ideas for learning at home, which could be done whenever time is available.
These activities, and the KS2 activity booklet, can be done alongside the timetable that will be set IF schools should close, but may also be done anytime.
Please be aware that the KS2 booklet is for children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 - children should only access what they feel confident and challenged appropriately by.
