15 September 2020
It's been great to see all of you back at school this past week and a half. The children have coped so well with all the new rules and hygiene expectations! From Monday 14th, we are going to transition back to table groups instead of rows, which I'm sure will help it feel more like the classroom environment they are used to.
We are going to start giving out books on Wednesday 16th. Please keep the reading books for a full week, and then return them the following Wednesday to get some new reading books. Reading is so important and we really do ask that you support us in supporting your child by reading frequently at home. Should you wish to read more books please log on to active learn where there are plenty more books to read and rewards will be given.
This week the children have been recapping previous learning by counting within 20 and 50 and comparing numbers using the <> = signs. We will move the learning forward next week by working with numbers up to 100. Activities to support this learning can be found on Sumdog.
We have been trying to develop children's resilience this week and encourage them to complete their work. After a long time at home some children have found getting back into writing challenging, however they have shown perseverance and determination. We are focusing our English work around a book by Simon Batrum called "Bob, a day in the life of the man on the moon". We have asked and wrote questions, wrote descriptions and learnt what expanded noun phrases are.
We have learnt what significant means and found out that there are many significant people who have had a huge impact upon our world today. The most popular was Tim Berners-Lee. Ask you child why they were thankful for his contribution to our world.
For now, homework will consist of weekly reading and spelling tasks on Teams, as well as Maths activities on Sumdog and TT Rockstars.
Please check your child's bag as logins for all these resources have been sent home.
If you have any questions please use Teams as a communication tool or email the office to make an appointment.
PE will be on Wednesday at the moment. Please send a full kit into school and we will return at the half term break to be washed
Well done to our Championship Point winners this week - Harry, Amelia and Rehan.
Well done to our Learning Hero - Zara
Well done to our handwriting hero - Luka
