Monday 1st June 2020

 

Good morning to all of the lovely Squirrels blush

 

How are you all?  I hope you have had a really great half term break, haven't we be really spoiled with the sunshine laugh

I am sorry that I am a little late with my message this morning however I am sure you are all aware that this week is a little different for schools, some children and teachers.  A small number of children will be returning from this week in Hedgehogs and Owls year 1.  All of the adults are going to be in school today to make sure that we are ready so I have had to get things organised at home.  All of you amazing Squirrels will be continuing your fantastic efforts working from home just as you have been doing over the last weeks. Hopefully I will get to see you all very soon though.

Just as before, your suggested weekly activities and tasks are attached on our class page below this message.  I will also make sure that I am available to correspond with you each day and would still love for you send in and share all of the amazing things that you are doing.  Remember above all I am a Squirrel winkand our home schooling will continue as normal.

Thank you to all of you that took on the 'become a nature photographer' challenge.  There has been some really beautiful photographs sent in. I have decided that rather than me judging the entries I am going to ask Mrs Cattell to select the winning photograph from all of the entries.  Mrs Cattell is extremely qualified to do this and all of the entries will be anonymous.  I will announce the winner at the end of the week. Good luck everyone wink

I have uploaded new tasks for you all on both the Spelling Shed and Prodigy sites so please get logged in a have a go.  Towards the end of last term we were knocked off the top spots on Spelling Shed by the Foxes.  Let's not be beaten again Squirrels, this is a team effort!

I hope you all have an amazing day and I am looking forward to receiving lots of messages from you all smiley

 

Bye for now,

 

Miss Williams x

Homework

This will be as practical as possible and linking to the work undertaken in class. Homework will be given out on Fridays and collected in on Wednesdays.

Parents can help with homework tasks, but please leave feedback in books to let us know of any particular difficulties or activities you enjoyed.

I have included spellings for each child should you wish to work on these as part of home learning and if you would like a copy of the tackling tables sheet that your child is currently working on then please just ask. 

Please make sure homework is well presented and reflects your child’s full understanding. Home school communication books must be in school each day so records of reading can be written in.

 

 

Information for Spring Term

Spring Term 2020

This terms topic is 'Anglo-Saxons'.

 

 

History/ Geography

Throughout the whole of the Spring term, we will be delving into history and studying at first the Anglo-Saxons followed the Vikings. We shall gain a detailed understanding of the impact they both had on Britain, the settlements, culture, beliefs and religion. 

 

English

For the first part of the Spring term, we will be finishing our study of historical narratives and ending the topic by writing our own stories based around the eruption of Mount Versuvius and the devastation of Pompeii during Roman times. Following on from this, we will be taking a closer look at persuasion.  As part of this topic, we will be working on apostrophes for possession.  We shall then move on to myths and legends, once again practicing our character and scene setting writing skills.

 

Maths

For the first half of the Spring term, we will be concentrating on becoming confident in our chosen methods of multiplication and division.  Following on from this, we shall be learning about length, perimeter and area. Finally, in the second half of the term we shall move on to fractions before finishing with the measurement of mass and capacity for the year 3 cohort and decimals for the year 4.

 

 

Science

For the first half of the term, we shall be looking at the properties of solids, liquids and gases as part of our topic 'States of Matter'.  For the second half of the term, we shall move on to the topic 'Where does all that food go?' This includes a study of the human skeleton, teeth and digestion.

 

ICT

This term, we will be using 'Scratch' to learn how to program our own interactive stories, games and animations.

 

Art and Design

This term, as part of our Anglo-Saxon topic, we shall be learning the craft of weaving just like the Anglo-Saxons would have done.

 

PE

In games with YDP, we will be doing indoor hockey. In indoor PE, we will be doing dance, recreating the battles between the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings.

 

PSHE

The topic we shall be looking into and studying is conflict.  We shall be looking at what can cause conflicts and the different types of conflicts that we might all experience in life. The emotions that might be experienced as a consequence, methods and strategies to cope and then finally resolution of conflicts and moving on. 

 

RE

We will be looking at the Gospels.  We will gain an understanding of the Gospels as being biographies about the life of Jesus written by different authors and from each authors opinions of events.
