TimeTables Rockstars

 

To support our UKS2 children in taking ownership of their homework and to ensure they have the resources or support to complete it; there is a Thursday lunchtime homework club (where children can choose or are directed to attend).

 

Topic Homework:

Each half term, a grid is sent out within each key stage which links with the topic, their learning and our school value focus for the following half term. Within each key stage the pupils are recommended to complete a number of their chosen activities and each completed activity is rewarded with dojo points.  At the end of the half term all classes showcase this homework to share and celebrate the children’s hard work and efforts. These homework grids will be available on our website in the 'Children' section.

 

Home Readers:

Children are asked to read a minimum of 3 times per week for at least 15 minutes.  We ask that the children's reading records are signed and handed in on a daily basis to be stamped and dojo points given out.  Children who complete this will gain an extra 10 minute breaktime on a Friday afternoon.  

 

Remote Education:

If your child is self-isolating at home (due to Covid symptoms or a positive Covid test result) but are well enough to continue with their school work, then we will support them by providing remote learning through our online platforms and MS Teams.  For detailed information on the policies and procedures we follow in such cases, please refer to our school website-key information-remote education section.  

 

 

Look at what we have been doing

Thank you Mrs Eastwood

 

Cedar class would like to say a massive thank you to Mrs Eastwood for helping us take our learning outdoors.  We have learnt so much about the Anglo-Saxons (History) and Fossil (Science) and we have had lots of fun doing it.  

 

We can't wait to do it again in the Spring term.

Hot chocolate, Whipped cream, Marshmallows and toasted brioche. Yum Yum!

Excavating our fossils using an assortment of tools

Making our own fossils ready to excavate next week.

Lighting fires with fire steels, cotton wool and clam shells.

Outdoor Learning - Making structures that the Anglo-Saxons could have used

Outdoor learning linked to our topic - Anglo Saxons. Foraging and making bread on a campfire

Cooking the bread on the fire

The children added water to their mix of flour, sugar and salt. They kneaded it in the bag and until it formed a dough. The children them put tin foil on the end of their sticks, molded the bread around it and cooked it on the fire. When it was cooked, they ate it. The children really enjoyed their afternoon outside. We can't wait to do it again next week.
