We hope that you have all had a happy and healthy half term break and are ready and raring to go again!
This week's home learning pack can be found below, as well as photocopied packs being available in the entrance porch later in the morning on Monday 1st June.
Starting Monday 1st June, I will teaching my 'bubble' full time. You will find that other adults are having the pleasure of seeing and commenting your fabulous creativity and work. I will do my best to have a look at some of your work during the week. I will also continue to post recordings of 'The Beast of Buckingham Palace' here, so that you can find out what happens to Prince Albert!
Photocopied packs of work for each week are available to collect from the front entrance porch after 10am on the Monday at the beginning of each week.
There is absolutely no suggestion that children work all day, but some structure can be helpful. Some days will be easier to do this than others. We recognise that some of you are also trying to work from home or care for others. Equally, there are some fantastic home learning projects being devised by yourselves. Whatever way you choose, or are able to work, is entirely up to you.
We will be rewarding any work posted on your portfolios with five dojos each day. This will be for the whole day and not for the number of tasks, as this might add additional unnecessary pressure.
White Rose Maths (similar to our class maths lessons)
This site has five daily lessons per week.
They have a short video, explaining the lesson and a worksheet to complete. You could download this or just write the answers in your exercise book.
The children have their logins in their home learning and closure work packs. Please message me on Class Dojo messages if you need your login sent.
The children have logins for this site also. I will set up a weekly maths competition, which the children can enter. It also has a spelling section.
Exercising is good for the body but also helps to make us happy!
This is obviously more tricky when we can't get outside as much as we'd like to.
