Home Learning Update

Dear Parents/Carers,

As some children will be returning to school on June 2nd, the way home learning is being provided will be changing due to most staff working with children in school.

Home learning projects will continue to be uploaded to the school website on a weekly basis and will now be for specific key stages, rather than year groups:  Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2), Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4) and Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6).

Instead of logging onto a specific class page to access the home learning, you will now need to go to the Children menu on the website  – Home Learning Projects and select the relevant key stage for your child.

We will continue to use the key stage email addresses, but these may not be answered from your child’s teacher.  The following teachers will respond to the emails:

Reception and Year 1 and 2 - Miss White

Year 3 and 4 - Mrs Palmer (Mr Staveley will continue to respond to any Nightingale emails)

Year 5 and 6 - Mr Staveley

It has been lovely to receive some of the children’s work, but we now ask that the home learning email addresses are no longer used for sending in children’s work. The named teachers will be available only for questions regarding the work set.

Key Stage 2 will no longer be setting weekly mymaths tasks, but please continue to use Times Tables Rockstars and Accelerated Reader.  There will also be no weekly spelling lists for classes. Please use the spelling tasks on each of the weekly projects to support practicing specific sounds and letter patterns alongside year group common exception words. 

Thank you for continuing to support you child/children with their home learning.

Many thanks

 

Spot the staff babies

It's half term so we thought you might like a fun activity to do.  In the first attached document you will see pictures of 29 of our staff as babies.  In the second document you will see the names of the staff.  Can you match the names to the correct staff pictures?  Look back here on Friday 29th May to check how many you got right.  Good luck!

Here is the latest SPAG document...

Arthur has been taking his home learning very seriously.  This is just some of it.  Fantastic effort!
Oliver has been using 'ictgames' online to practise his spellings.  Well done.
Look at how delicious Luke's banana bread looks!  He made a powerpoint presentation too.
Look at the effort Zuzia put into making her dragon!!!  Great job.
Amelia made a chocolate cake.  Who wants a slice and thinks she should make another one once we are back at school?
Max has been very busy.  Here is a look at what he got up to last week.  We are very impressed that you have been working with percentages and decimals.  Well done!  It looks like you had a great picnic for VE DAY too.
We miss seeing Hanna's beautifully presented work on a daily basis.  Her handwriting is lovely!

Monday 18th May

Good afternoon everyone.  How are you all?  I am pleased to tell you that I am now well.  I was poorly but back to full health now.  I have been keeping an eye on all the work you have been sending in.  Wow, you have been working hard.  Well done.  Please keep it up.  I am looking forward to seeing more.  I miss my class very much.  Look after yourselves, stay safe and i'll see you soon.  Mrs Smith

Don’t forget that the same rules apply!

 

At the meeting you will need to know that:

 

· The meeting must not be recorded.

· You will need to think carefully about where you are when you join the meeting and what you are wearing so  that you are ready to meet with all of your classmates.

· Your parents need to be present in the room where you have the meeting.

· Teachers will lock the meeting once everyone has joined so that no-one can join who hasn’t been invited.

· Teachers will be able to remove or mute people who do not follow the rules.

Hopefully see you there!

Hello Windsor class!


We have a new email account so that you can contact us directly, and we can respond! You might have a question, or maybe you just want to show us something - perhaps it will be a photo of something you've made, or a powerpoint you've done, or a diary of your day, or even a story you've written ... surprise us!

 

Here is the email address.  Please put 'Mrs Bell and Mrs Smith' in the subject, when you get in touch.

 

LKS2learning.sbp@educ.somerset.gov.uk

 

Each week we'll be asking you to send us a piece of work based on that week's Learning Project. This week it will be something to do with animals. We can't wait to see all your work! Please send us an email of something you have completed that you are proud of.

 

We look forward to hearing from you.

17th April

Good afternoon Windsor class,

We hope you've had a lovely week - whether you've taken a little schoolwork 'holiday' or kept going! 

 

We've been having a look at our whole class heat map (shown below), and noticed that as a class we're not as fast as we should be with our basic times tables - 2s, 5s, and 10s! These should definitely not take us over 5 seconds to answer, so we'd like you to concentrate on them for the next week!

We would like you to have a look at your own heat map on TT Rockstars - you can find this on the Me tab. When you look at it, you might find that you have some green in the 2s, 5s and 10s - but if you have any orange or red, you need to practise these and get faster! When you are in TTRockstars, if you practise in Garage, you might not have any of these particular tables to practise, so remember to visit the Studio regularly and Soundcheck once a week. 

 

To practise, go to Hit the Button and click Times Tables - then choose whichever one you need to practise most. You should practise with finding the answer AND finding the question for real fluency. You can also do these offline - writing down some questions for someone in your family to test you! 

 

Galileo have challenged us to a TT tournament next week - starting at 9am on Monday and finishing at 3pm on Friday - do your best! We will be cheering you on! 

 

Stay safe and take care of yourselves and your families.

Week beginning Monday 13th April 2020

 

Hello Windsor class,

We hope you are all enjoying the Easter holidays and finding the time to get out in the sunshine.  This week's learning is all about being creative!  We hope you are taking the time to have a break too!

 

Stay safe if you are out and about and remember to keep your distance.

 

 

 

Week beginning Monday 6th April

Hi to everyone in Windsor class.  We are now in week 3 of this very strange time.  How are you all finding it?  I know I am using this time to do lots of fun activities with my family.  We have been baking, building dens, painting and spending lots of time outside.  My children are using this time to learn new skills such as becoming better on their skateboards and scooters but also to bond with each other.  It is rare that we get all this quality time together and we are loving it.  Well done with your home learning too.  It can be hard to adjust during a time like this but you are doing great!  You too parents!

 

Hi to everyone from Mrs Smith and Mrs Bell.  These are very strange times but we are very proud of how you are coping and staying positive.  We are hope you are enjoying the sunshine and learning lots of new things.  Enjoy this quality time with your family and stay safe.

Spring Term 1

English

Today we did some hot seating.  We each became a character from Cinderella and answered questions in character.  In our books, we recorded the dialogue using our speech rules.

Maths

In Maths we have been doing column multiplication and learning how to regroup.  Another term for regrouping is carrying.

English

In English, we have started a new unit, Rags to Riches.  Today we came into class to discover we'd had a visitor over night!  We don't know who it is but he or she left us clues.  We have completed a report for our Mini Police.

Here is a copy of Spring term's topic web.
Over the past couple of weeks we have been learning about Earthquakes and Volcanoes.  We looked at the structure of a volcano and its labelled parts.  We enjoyed painting a cross section of a volcano.

Mathematics. We have been using numbers lines and cubes to support us with multiplication.

As part of our topic work, we designed and made our own Roman Soldier shields. We even went into battle!
In Maths we have been using the dienes and place value counters to practise adding a 2 digit number to a 3 digit number.  We are becoming familiar with column addition too. 
Mrs Smith and Mrs Bell are very excited to welcome you back to school this term.  We hope you have had a brilliant summer and you too are excited to be joining Year 3.
