Here are the current home learning activities for each class.
Cherry class – Miss Hume
Will be sent home weekly.
Willow Class – Miss Shepherd
- Read every evening.
- Share a story with your child each day.
- Practise spellings – please read the letter in the front of your child’s spelling book.
- Maths – I will be posting links to mymaths on the weekly updates for things to practise with your child.
As a school we are thinking about our plastic waste. To help your child understand the different materials around them and also how much we are all using please can they collect all the clean plastic recycling from your house in one week. These items then need to be turned into a dinosaur of their choice (we are learning about bone structure of dinosaurs in class so they might want to include this). Please bring all dinosaurs in before half term. I cannot wait to see them!
Ash class – Mrs Barahona
All children have logins for Times Tables Rock Stars, which we shall be accessing in class once a week. It would be highly beneficial for children to spend time practising their times tables on this site at home.
There are a range of MyMaths activities set for the term. I am encouraging children to select the activities they complete based on in class feedback.
Children need to be reading age appropriate books for half an hour each evening.
All children have logins for spag.com
which we shall be accessing in class once a week, where possible it would be great for children to have time practising this at home as well.
Rowan class – Mrs Lewis and Mrs Dye
Beech – Miss Pritchard
On a weekly basis, please access Times Table Rock Stars. If you have any time remanding then please read the weekly update for activity suggestions.
Please see the class weekly update for information.
Please make sure your child reads daily. They need to bring their reading record book into school each day as their reading logs will be checked.
Oak – Mrs Downing
Please read for half an hour a day and record in the reading record log.
Maths – Please access TTRockstars to pracise times tables and related facts. Each week, on the weekly update, Mrs Downing will allocate useful MyMaths activities for home practise. These will support the work we are about to do in class so will act as a useful head start for those who maybe feel less confident.
Writing/Topic – Over the term, each child will be asked to complete a Mayans inspired book project. I have split the pages up into 6 sections which I suggest they do a week at a time so to spread the project and make less work at the end. Your 6 sections are:
- Front cover and contents page
- Introductory page including where in the world the Mayans lived, when in time they lived and key facts about their civilisation.
- A sketch of a Mayan artifact including labels which describe what the object tells us about life in Ancient Maya.
- The Mayans and chocolate
- Interesting facts! What do you think may surprise us?
- Conclusion and summing up page
There are lots of online sources which are useful for this project. We also have some books in class or our library which could be borrowed for the project. Paper or electronic copies are both acceptable and electronic copies can be sent to email@example.com
This project is due in by the end of the term.
