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
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
TTRockstars (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. Work will be prepared on MS Teams, in the 24 hrs after we are made aware of your child's first day of isolation, by their class teacher. 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.
NSPCC Number Day
Today we joined in raising money for the NSPCC and its Number Day fundraiser. Many of us bought raffle tickets and Braxton from Hawthorn was one of the lucky winners. We also came dressed in clothes with numbers on and spent the day doing number related activities. Here are some of our photos from our outdoor active maths.
Canals and River Trust virtual meeting
Today we were lucky enough to have a virtual visit with David from the Canals and Rivers Trust. We learnt about water safety near canals, rivers and reservoirs and about what canals are, their history and how they work. We also got the chance to show off all of our knowledge about rivers.
Today was World Book Day and we spent the day in our pyjamas! We enjoyed the story of "Stuck!" by Oliver Jeffers then made our own versions of the story. We told these stories to each other in class.
We also watched a "World Book Day - Books that make you lol" session.
We read another Oliver Jeffers story, ""Up and Down" on our afternoon meeting then spent our afternoon making our own character book marks.
