Hello and Welcome to Cherry Class
We are a wonderful class of year 1 and 2 children. Our teacher is Mrs. Evans and our teaching assistant is Mrs. Belshaw. It is fantastic being in our class, we work hard and we are able to access provision areas inside and outside the classroom. We have a fantastic den and an outdoor kitchen.
This term our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. We have to come to school in our PE kits on these days.
We love reading and enjoy sharing stories in our reading corners. We have to bring our reading books and diaries to school every day. We get extra house points and have the chance to win the KS1 Playground toys box!
Remote Learning for Children who are Isolating
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:
EYFS play MiniMash - play the games to develop their maths and literacy skills
Purple Mash (KS1/2)- complete the 2Dos for English and maths skills practice. There are other great topic themed activities to try too.
Bug Club (All key stages) – read some of the texts and answer the questions about the book. If they are in KS2 ask them to write a short recount or make a book review too
Sumdog (KS1/2) – play in the games section to revise key skills and check and complete maths tasks/homework set by their class teacher
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.
Maths online game 'Hit the button', great for practising number bonds and multiplication/ division facts: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
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
Espresso Primary Education- https://online.espresso.co.uk/espresso/login/Authn/UserPassword This is a learning resource which we use in school. The children have access to videos, games and phonics activities all linked to the topics we teach in school Username: student17934 Password: water34
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.
