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.

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

Hello Acorns, Oaks and Nurture Graduates,

 

I hope you have been enjoying yourselves in the sun again this week. I’ve had a few animal visitors to the house this week. The dog, in the photo, is called Buddy. His owner has gone back to work now so we have been looking after him in the day. He had been enjoying being home with his owner all the time and he found it hard to spend the days without him to begin with but now he is happy with us. We will take him for a walk soon which he loves.

The other photo is of the village peacock, Percy. Percy escaped from his owners ten years ago and now visits each house in the village looking for food. His feathers are beautiful aren’t they?

 

Mrs Bowle is really missing Nurture group now so to help her feel better she sat with her family and wrote a list of things they would like to do after lockdown. They are really looking forward to doing these things when it is safe to do so.

 

Now we have been off school for a while it is easy to worry about falling behind with learning. Please be assured that you are not behind; we have all been off school and we are probably actually ahead in learning we have not realised we have been doing. If you are doing fun things at home or outside you are learning. I have added some ideas of this type of learning in the photos.

 

We loved seeing Olivia; Ashley; Fox;  Rebeca; Aidan and Natalie in the Class Zoom meetings this week. We miss seeing you Nurture children and graduates and love to hear from you.

 

If you need help with joining class Zoom meetings you can email the ‘ks1learning’ email address.

 

You can use this email address to send us your learning and challenge entries! Please put Miss Clark’s name in the subject.

Hello Acorns, Oaks and Nurture Graduates,

 I hope you have found some creative ways to celebrate VE day and to have fun and learn at home this week.

This week Ashley, Connor and Fox have sent me some photos of them learning at home which have really made me smile because they are busy learning in such inventive ways. Keep up the great work!

This week I went on a lovely (but hilly) bike ride to see some beautiful bluebells. I wandered into the woods a bit too far and got a bit lost but found my way out in the end! Mrs Bowle has also been enjoying woodland walks with her children.

Please use the Nurture Learning document and Nurture spellings list to access the learning you would normally do in Nurture group.

Here is a suggestion of a Monday-Friday timetable you could use that is similar to the one we use in Nurture:

After Breakfast

Choose a relaxing activity to do.

Writing Task

(Up to 15 minutes)

Use the Nurture spellings only do your class page spellings if you want to.

Choose a relaxing activity to do.

Hello Acorns, Oaks and Nurture Graduates,

 

I hope you have another good week at home. I have been enjoying spending more time outside and spotting some wild animals in my garden. I have been trying out some chalk obstacle courses while I have been out walking.

Thank you to Olivia and Ashley for sending in photos of the fantastic learning they have been doing at home. Mrs Bowle and I really like seeing your photos of you ‘doing Nurture’ at home and we would really like to hear from all the Acorns, Oaks and Graduates each week.

 

You can use this email address to send us your learning and challenge entries! Please put Miss Clark’s name in the subject.

This week Mrs Bowle has decided that the Nurture Challenge is:

 

Can you make your favourite animal out of Lego?

Or a really fast Vehicle?

Maybe even a Robot!

Send us your Lego pictures.

 

If you don’t have Lego feel free to use junk modelling or a different construction material.

 

Have fun!

 

Miss Clark and Mrs Bowle

 

Exciting news!

We are offering you the opportunity to meet with your teacher and your classmates using Zoom. The meetings will take place next week on:

Monday 4th May at 2pm – Year one classes

Tuesday 5th May at 11am – Year two classes

The meetings will last for a maximum of 30 minutes, the focus of the meeting will be to say hello and share what you’ve been learning at home.

If you would like to join in with a meeting you need to ask your parents to send an email to ks1learning.sbp@educ.somerset.gov.uk  I will then send them an invitation to join in. I would like to know if you want to join the meeting by Thursday 30th April. I will then send you your invitation.

On Monday you will need to click on the link in the email I send you so that you can join the meeting at 2pm. 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.
  • Parents need to read Zoom’s terms and conditions, so they are sure of what Zoom is all about.

Hopefully see you there!

Hello Acorns, Oaks and Nurture Graduates

What a lovely week of sunshine we have been having! I have been foraging for wild garlic to make garlic butter for home- made garlic bread and Mrs Bowle has been busy doing some more baking with her children.

 

This week the Nurture activities are linked to the Year One class work and the work we usually do in Nurture in school.

We hope your child will recognise these and will be able to access them with confidence. There is now also a weekly spelling list for Nurture children. If you would like to do some of the activities or spellings on the usual class page, then of course, feel free.

In Nurture, we would do these activities for up to fifteen minutes and then allow the children to choose an activity they would like to do and that helps to feel calm and relaxed.

 

We are all finding the change of routine a bit tricky so we have also included a social story about why schools have closed for you to share with your child.

 

Thank you to Connor for sending us a photo of the fantastic writing he has been doing at home.

This week we would love it if you emailed us a photo of a piece of Nurture Home Learning that made you feel proud.

We also have a weekly Nurture Challenge for you:

Can you make a boat that floats?

W/B 20.4.20

Hello Acorns and Oaks Nurture Groups,

 

Mrs Bowle and I have been really missing seeing you in Nurture Group and we hope you had a fun Easter and have remembered how to be good:

Look after yourself

Look after other people

Look after your home and toys

Over the Easter holidays I’ve been on some local walks and runs and I’ve played virtual Scrabble with my friends who I can’t see at the moment. I also got all dressed up in my ‘fine dining’ clothes and had a meal in the garden. It was like being in a restaurant.

Mrs Bowle and her children made a cake for her choir Bake Off. She decided to make a rainbow cake to say thank you to the key workers who are keeping us safe. Her children enjoyed decorating it with smarties.

 

We are wondering what you have been doing over Easter?

 

You can use this email address to get in touch! Please put Miss Clark’s name in the subject.

ks1learning.sbp@educ.somerset.gov.uk

 

We have both been thinking of some ways to bring you some Nurture activities you can do at home and hope you enjoy the ideas we have posted on our Nurture page for this week.

 

We look forward to hearing what you have been up to,

 

Miss Clark and Mrs Bowle

 

What have we been doing?
