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.
Using the link below, head over the video resource center and look at what we have been up to this week.
Today Cedar class were being the teacher. As part of being safe online unit of work, they were to select their favourite app and tell us all about it. They had to tell us:
A description of what it is.
Why they think it’s popular.
Any safety features or privacy features available.
What you think some of the risks might be.
Look at some of the work done below.
Spotify is a online app which you can listen to any music when you want to.
What is good about Spotify is that when you search a song and is has bad langue it has a E next o it ( it stands of rude words) and will not let you see it if you have set it too.
Spotify is great because you don't need to pay for it and you get all the words in the world free from it.
The dangers are that you can follow and like any one you like.
The age limit is 13 but if you have set the correct settings then it is safe as can be.
With this app you can make your own playlist and you can listen to podcasts.
When you like a song I will go into a list so you can listen to your favourite song all at once.
You can get the app on your phone and then broadcast it to your google home or Alexa.
I love Spotify and I use it all the time. Hope you will like it after this.
Cedar class - Poetry
Today we have been looking at Haikus. Cedar class wrote some of their own about Lockdown.
Take a look:
Lockdown by Lottie
Inside out of sight
Only plan is zoom meeting
Spend the day alone
Large Lockdown by Jack B
Everyone so bored
Key workers doing their best
Almost at the end
Lockdown by Isobel
Most children at home
Parents slowly going mad
Sun is shining bright
Lockdown by Harry
Lockdown is rubbish,
We all have been stuck in doors,
When is it over?
Cedar class have been undertaking thier Bikability training this week. This has consisted of learning to ride a bike, becoming more confident on thier bikes and knowing how to be safe and ride thier bikes on the road. The children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the weather was very kind to use so far.
Today the children have taken part in their outdoor learning and have absolutely loved it. We investigated the best place for a dormouse to build a nest, played hide and seek in the trees, went on a scavenger hunt, toasted marshmallows and made smores and enjoyed a warm hot chocolate.
It was really nice to make use of our amazing grounds.
