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).

  • TT Rockstars(Year 2 upwards) – play in the Garage Band to practise key times tables that have been set and play in the Studio Band to improve their Rockstar status  
  • Teach your Monster to Read (Phonics EYFS/KS1) – ensure your child logs onto their account each day to learn the sounds appropriate for their phonics phase 
  • Topic homework tasks (All key stages) – these are available to view on the school website in the Children’s section – Half Termly Theme Homework  

 

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.

Tuesday 9th February 2021 - E-Safety day

 

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.

 

 

Isobel told us about Spotify

 

Spotify 

 

Spotify is a online app which you can listen to any music when  you want to. 

 

  1. 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. 

  2. Spotify is great because you don't need to pay for it and you get all the words in the world free from it. 

  3. The dangers are that you can follow and like any one you like. 

  4. The age limit is 13  but if you have set the correct settings then it is safe as can be. 

  5. With this app you can make your own playlist  and you can listen to podcasts. 

  6. When you like a song I will go into a list so you can listen to your favourite song all at once. 

  7. 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.

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?

Well-being Wednesday - Hot Chocolate in the Woods

Cedar Bikability 2020 

 

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.  

Outdoor Learning Day

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.
