Spring Term

Week beginning 1st March 2021

 

We have had a fantastic week of descriptive writing.  We have been blown away by the vibrant vocabulary and different sentence techniques you have used to describe your chocolate rooms.  They all sounded truly 'dahlicious'!  We also had lots of fun on 'Fun Friday', making dens, knitting, baking, building lego models and the children at school made some origami bunnies, as you can see in the above photograph.

 

Remember, Thursday 4th March is World Book Day so get your outfits ready to dress up as your favourite book character or you can wear pyjamas.

 

If you are accessing your learning online, please note that an extra topic session has been added to the afternoon timetable (2:15 - 2:30).  We will also continue to set a piece of work each day through Assignments on Microsoft Teams. There is a link below which will take you to a tutorial on how you can upload your work through Assignments.  Your teacher will give you more details about this in the relevant lesson.

Whether you are accessing your learning from home or from school, the learning will be the same for all of you and the learning for each day is outlined below.  If you are one of the children working from home and you are unable to access any of the online lessons, you will be able to pick up anything you miss from the resources below.  Please ONLY do the lesson(s) that you miss; if you jump ahead and do all of the work on here before the actual day they are being taught on Teams, then you will end up repeating learning when you join the live lessons. 

 

Class and Maths homework will still be posted on the homework tabs each week.  There won't be a weekly spelling test but you can still complete the spellings homework to help you learn these key words and spelling rules.

 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.  Our email addresses are detailed at the bottom of this page; we are here to help and support you all during this strange time.

Reading

It is very important that the children continue to read as much as possible at home (there is plenty of time in between lessons for some reading). 

We have added a range of websites which have different online books provided for free.  Please have a look and download any books that you would like to read with your children.

Also, the Oak National Academy has created a virtual school library with free reading and writing activities.  Each week, a popular children's author or illustrator will provide free books, exclusive videos and their recommended reads.  More information can be found at:

We are also encouraging children to take part in our Reading Bingo activity (see link below). If children complete the bingo card, they will receive a prize from their class teacher when we are back in school.

Thank you for your continued support in helping your child be a reading hero.
