If you have any questions or want to get in touch about anything, you are more than welcome to email me at class5@bradworthy.devon.sch.uk and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

 

Home-Learning Week 3

 

Good morning, Class 5!

 

I hope you managed to enjoy the snow before it melted - I only had hail where I live!

A huge well done to Nathan who was brave enough to send a video of him reading his Holes letter home. I've uploaded it to our Class area in the Video Resource Centre so the rest of you can enjoy it, too! If anyone else is feeling brave, it's still not too late to send yours in...

 

I also want to point out how well a few of you have been doing in the whole school league on EdShed. As of yesterday evening, we had 2 members of our class in the Top 10 Spellers and 1 person in the Top 10 Mathstronauts - an absolutely amazing effort from Lacey, Rojan and Sophie B! The 3 of you can look out for an extra treat in your home-learning pack next week!

As a class, we are currently in 5th place for both Maths and Spellings - let's see if we can move back up to where we belong this week!

 

  • I have printed a copy of this week's home-learning plan and resources for each of you. You will find your copy of this week's pack in a named envelope in the same place as last week (the playhouse on the top playground) from 9:30am. These are available for you to collect whenever you wish after then, although please try to avoid pick-up and drop-off times if possible (and remember to maintain social distancing).

Like previous weeks, if you are unable to collect your pack, please let me know so that I can try and arrange for it to be posted to you. There are a small number of you that have already requested packs to be sent home and these are on their way to you!

 

  • Below this message, you should also find the link to download the Weekly Home-Learning plan and copies of any resources that you may need for the week (these are already included in this week’s pack).

I have also created a Weekly Home-Learning Summary Page which should give you an overview of the week's activities. This will now be a regular part of the weekly plan!

 

  • I am on duty in school on Tuesday, so I’m likely to be unavailable online during this day. This said, I will be working from home during the rest of the week so will be able to try to answer any questions, or to provide help.

 

Please try your best with every activity – after all, I can’t ask any more of you than that. That said, please don’t suffer in silence! If you need any help with any of the tasks that I have set, please contact me via the Class Blog or the class email address ( class5@bradworthy.devon.sch.uk ) and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

This message will be reoccurring but:

You MUST contact me at least once each week to let me know how you’ve been getting on with the home-learning tasks. If I have not heard from you, then I will make a quick phone call home to check that everything’s okay. 

Thank you to everyone who did get in touch via the blog or email last week! Just to let you know that I will be touching base over the next day or two with those families that I haven't heard from recently. This is just to check that you are all okay.

 

Have a cool week!

Home-Learning Week 2

 

Good morning, Class 5!

 

I hope you all got on okay last week - it was great to hear from so many of you on the blog and via email. There was definitely some good country and capital city quizzing going on from a few of you!

 

  • I have printed a copy of this week's home-learning plan and resources for each of you. You will find your copy of this week's pack in a named envelope in the same place as last week (the playhouse on the top playground) from 9am. These are available for you to collect whenever you wish after then, although please try to avoid pick-up and drop-off times if possible (and remember to maintain social distancing).

Like last week, if you are unable to collect your pack, please let me know so that I can try and arrange for it to be posted to you. There are a small number of you that have already requested packs to be sent home and these are on their way to you!

 

  • Below this message, you should also find the link to download the Weekly Home-Learning plan and copies of any resources that you may need for the week (these are already included in this week’s pack). I will try my best to organise the resources in the order that they appear in the plan, but please forgive me if they are not in exactly the right order every time! 

I have also created a Weekly Home-Learning Summary Page which should give you an overview of the week's activities. If this is useful, then I will make this a regular part of the weekly plan!

 

  • I am on duty in school on Tuesday, so I’m likely to be unavailable online during this day. This said, I will be working from home during the rest of the week so will be able to try to answer any questions, or to provide help.

Thank you to everyone who did get in touch via the blog or email last week - if I haven't heard from you yet, please get in touch over the next few days so that I know that you are all okay!

 

Have an awesome week!

Maths Friday Revision session

This week, our Maths revision focus area is: Column Addition.

If you've already completed this week's Maths tasks, please have a go at the questions in the document below. Start with Section B and then move onto Section C.

I'll will post the answers for this activity at the end of the day so that you can check your workings / answers.

Good luck!

Home - Learning Week 1

Hi everyone,

 

This first message outlining home-learning is REALLY quite a long one, I'm afraid, so please bear with me - it's useful, I promise!

 

Routine and expectations

During this week, I suggest that you set up some sort of routine for working. This includes when and where you are going to work – you may even want to wear your school uniform so that it feels more like when you are in school! This routine isn’t stuck in stone, but it will help you feel more in control of what’s going on.

It’s also important that you take breaks throughout the day. Please don’t be afraid to leave a more challenging activity for a while and return to it later (or another day if needed) – just don’t give up completely straight away!

 

You should aim to be working for between three and five hours each day. This will include:

  • The activities in the weekly home-learning plan
  • Reading (at least 15 – 20 minutes every day)
  • EdShed and other educational computer-based activities
  • Research
  • Creative activities – e.g. art, music, baking, etc
  • Physical activities – e.g. Joe Wicks’ workouts, running, cycling, etc.
  • Educational TV programs e.g. documentaries, the daily CBBC educational programs, etc

Now that you are in Class Five, you are old enough now that you should be starting to take responsibility for your own work – it’s your home-learning not your parent’s! This means that they shouldn’t have to be constantly nagging you to get on with your work or getting stressed because you don’t want to do it (or are rushing and haven’t read it properly!). They can still help you as and when you need it, but you should be trying to have a go at things yourself first (like we do in school).

Home-Learning packs

Inside the playhouse on the top playground at school, I have already put a box full of your new home-learning packs. These are available for you to collect whenever you wish, although please try to avoid pick-up and drop-off times if possible (and remember to maintain social distancing). Each pack contains a green exercise book (like your jotters), a pencil and a pen, as well as the resources and home-learning plan for this week. Each folder has a name label on it so please make sure you take the right one!

 

If you are unable to collect your pack, please let me know so that I can try and arrange for it to be posted to you. There are a small number of you that have already requested packs to be sent home and this will be done at the start of the week.

Weekly Home-Learning Plans

Below this very long message, you should also find the link to download the Weekly Home-Learning plan and copies of any resources that you may need for the week (these are already included in this week’s pack). There is also some French activities for this week from Madame Price that I have added here. I will try my best to organise the resources in the order that they appear in the plan, but please forgive me if they are not in exactly the right order every time!

 

English

Each week you will have the equivalent of 5 English lessons. Usually, this will consist of 1 reading session, 1 grammar session, 1 spelling session and 2 writing sessions. Try to complete the activities in the order that they have been set as there will usually be a reason why they have been placed in that order! Sometimes there will be videos for you to watch, a story to listen to, a website to visit, etc. to help you with that session’s tasks.

 

Maths

Each week you will have the equivalent of 5 Maths lessons. Usually, this will consist of 4 sessions on a particular aspect of Maths and 1 revision session on something that we have already covered last term. This revision session will be added nearer the end of each week to the downloadable resources section for that week. It’s important that you complete the activities in the order that they have been set as they usually build on the learning from the previous lesson. We will be using a variety of resources over the coming weeks including White Rose Maths, BBC Bitesize, Espresso and activities from a range of different textbooks. You are likely to find some things more difficult than others but this doesn’t mean that you should just give up! Remember to try to have a growth mindset and positive attitude, even when it’s a bit tough.

 

Other subjects

Each week you will have 1 Wellbeing activity and a mix of 3 or 4 lessons from the other school subjects. This may include: Science, History, Geography, Music, French, Computing, Art, RE, etc. Normally, you will be able to pick and choose which order you complete these activities in.

!!FINAL PART!!

I am on duty in school on Tuesday, so I’m likely to be unavailable online during this day. This said, I will be working from home during the rest of the week so will be able to try to answer any questions, or to provide help.

 

Please try your best with every activity – after all, I can’t ask any more of you than that. That said, please don’t suffer in silence! If you need any help with any of the tasks that I have set, please contact me via the Class Blog or the class email address ( class5@bradworthy.devon.sch.uk ) and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

You MUST contact me at least once each week to let me know how you’ve been getting on with the home-learning tasks. If I have not heard from you, then I will make a quick phone call home to check that everything’s okay. 

 

PHEW!!! That was a lot of information in one go!

 

All that's left to say is, thank you for reading to the end of that message, and good luck with Week 1 of Home-Learning in Class 5!

Message from the office (Tempest photos) - Wednesday 7th October 2020

 

We have Tempest coming into school on Friday to take individual photographs of the children. In previous years, we have always allowed siblings from other schools or pre-schools to come into school to have a group photograph taken but due to the current situation, unfortunately this is something that we cannot do this year.

 

However, siblings who are at school here, can have a photograph together even if they are in different classes - but we would ask you to let us know if this is something you would like to do as we need to organise for this to be done separately. We have no issue with children in the same family crossing bubbles at the start of the day, on the basis they will have been together at breakfast, however we want to avoid breaking other children's bubbles.

 

If this is something that you would like to happen, please either email us or give either Rose or Sarah a ring in the office on 01409 241365. If we don't hear from you, the children will only have their photograph taken individually.


Thanks everyone!
