Class 8 2019 - 2020
Monday 27th Apil 2020
Dear Class 8,
I hope you are well and wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you all and missing you lots! I am keeping well at home doing lots of cross stitching and reading in the garden.
I have added some photos to the gallery on this page to show you what some people have been sending me. Click here to see the photos.
I am very impressed with all the work you have been doing on Purple Mash – keep it up! Now that we have this email system, we can send you extra information sometimes to help you with these tasks. The 2dos will continue with reading and topic activities.
You can also reply to us and attach photographs of your work or ask us questions about it. Please remember to just send photos of your work though and not of any other family members.
From this week we will be using White Rose lessons for mathematics at home.
The address is https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/
You will find year groups in a menu on the right. Each lesson comes with a video explanation and an activity with answers provided separately. The activities can be completed on paper. You can access an answer sheet to mark your own work.
Year 5 – Summer Term Week 1 https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/
If you find the work too difficult try the lessons from the year group below e.g. year 5 could try year 4. As long as you are trying hard to do some maths work at home I don’t mind.
Once you have completed your maths, if you can, ask an adult to take a picture of it and send it back to your class 2email account.
While we have been away from school I have realised how much I have missed reading your wonderful, creative writing and seeing your beautiful handwriting!
Therefore, each week I am going to be setting a writing task for you to complete at home. The task will be set on Monday to be completed and handed in by Friday.
Once you have completed your writing, if you can, ask an adult to take a picture of it and send it to me from your class 2email account.
I have attached the writing activity to the files section of this page (see below) - make sure you read it carefully, so that you know exactly what to do. You can also find copies of the writing activity within the home learning tab on the school’s website and sent as an attachment on 2email.
So every week you will be set:
Reading – 2do on Purple Mash (new activity daily)
Topic – 2do on Purple Mash (new activity daily)
Maths – From white rose (there are daily activities here)
Writing – Writing activity attached to the email (lasts for whole week)
You can still access other learning activities through the home learning tab on the website. I have also put some links below to other websites you might want to have a look at.
Stay safe and well.
** BBC Teach - Some of the lessons are being done by famous people - I'm looking forward to the Science lessons by Brian Cox! https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/live-lessons/primary-live-lessons/zmc9jhv **
