Home reading books:
Children should read a minimum of three times ( x 15 mins) a week at home. When they have read, please sign their reading diary. Children need to make sure that they bring their reading diary and reading book into school on a daily basis. Children can earn extra dojo points for doing this along with the chance to win the playground box of goodies.
Homework is set on a Wednesday and should be completed by the following Monday.
Spelling is set online through their Dojo portfolio.
Maths homework is set using the online platform called Sumdog.
If your child is isolating and absent from school because they are waiting for a COVID test result of a household member or themselves and they feel well, then please help them continue with their learning remotely at home as a short measure (2/3 days).
To keep learning please can they access from home the following:
For any longer isolation 10/14 days home learning will be delivered through your child’s Microsoft Teams Education account. This is now set up for every child and will be used to ensure blended learning and to help your child keep up with their peers in school. Please ensure you have followed the instructions in the MS Teams letter (that you have received by email) and your child is signed into their new account using their username and password details (which you have received by app message). The class teacher will then begin posting and uploading work for your child through their class/year group team. Any problems please email or phone the office.
If your child is unable to access the online platforms or MS Teams to complete home learning, which may be due to no internet connection or no suitable device, please contact school immediately where we will provide further support and a device if required.
We have been looking at different types of poems this week. Here are some of our Haiku poems.
Snow as white as sheep
Falls heavily from the sky
Sticks to the mountains
By Ava Costelloe
Sitting in my yard
Glistening at its softness
Waiting for its end
by Lucas Lord
Whiter than a sheet
Colder than Antarctica
Fire roaring warm
Snowflakes are our friends
Children sledging down the hill
In the falling snow!
by Phoebe Shaw
The snow was gleaming
Winter washed the world white
The old trees were bare
by Amelie Vicari
The Midnight Sky
The midnight sky gleams
Like a nightlight in your room
As bright as a star
by Neil Westell
Birch have just finished a really enjoyable block of lessons with a dance coach. We learnt about the different elements of dance and how to combine different types of movement.
