Wondering where your photos have gone? Don’t panic! Please see the folder below called ‘Your News’, I have moved them into there. From now on they will all be in one place and easy to look for.
Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a wonderful week and have got on well with the home learning tasks. Don't forget to send me pictures of what you have been getting up to! I miss seeing you all
I have left you a little extra activity today if you fancy it...watch the video below and have a go at drawing alongside Jeff Kinney. There are many more examples online if you fancy practising a few more illustrations but I know this particular series is popular in Osprey class!
You can also have a go at designing your own cover using this outline:
I have heard that some of you have already completed your kindness task - well done to you! My Grandma definitely appreciated her phone call today, she was feeling a bit lonely so we spoke for a very long time. I am now going to try and ring her everyday just to say "hello" and check she's alright.
Today is the day most commonly used to celebrate William Shakespeare's birthday so I thought I would share one of my favourite quotes: 'All that glitters is not gold'. What do you think he means by this?
I have an extra challenge for you today: At some point this week, I would like you to send a card, a text or make a phone call to a friend or family member that you have not spoken to for a while. Let's try to spread some kindness, brighten their days and make them smile. Today I am going to ring my Grandma to tell her how much she means to me and how much I miss her.
A very big well done to CJ, Harry, Florence, Isobel, Jake and Darcey for their work on TT Rockstars!! Jay and Euan you also made a good start yesterday - well done. Come on Ospreys don't let them get too much of a head start!
I hope you all have a really lovely Tuesday.
Good morning Osprey class!
I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter, spent time in the sunshine, made some lovely memories and eaten lots of Easter treats.
We are back to work this week as it is officially the start of the Summer term. This means I will be back to checking my emails throughout the day and posting updates daily on our website. Just like last term, please see 'Week 3' for this week's SPAG and English work and today's Maths work.
Please keep emailing me, keep me updated and send me your Easter pictures so that I can put them on the 'Your News' page!
I can’t believe that this is the end of Week 2 already!
Today marks the end of term and the beginning of the ‘Easter holidays’, therefore I won’t be uploading any work or updates over the next two weeks. Please check the website again on Monday 20th April where I will restart my posting and our next units of work.
I can imagine for some of you it might seem a little strange without your friends and without being able to go out to keep you busy so I have uploaded some optional Easter challenges for you! Please don't forget to keep up your times tables practise and your reading!
I am wishing you all a very very happy holiday, I know some of you are no longer doing what you had planned but keep positive, be helpful and kind and enjoy this time at home as best you can - as soon as we’re back in school I know you’ll all be missing it!
It's April Fools' Day (shhh!)
Did you know? In France and other areas of Europe it is tradition to attach a paper fish to somebody's back without them noticing; you then have to see how long it stays there without them taking it off! As an extra challenge today, I wonder if anyone can research any other traditions or even the origin of April Fools?
WOW! What a lot of emails I've received today!! So so pleased to have heard from so many of you and to hear all about what you're getting up to. I may have to create a folder especially for all of your pictures and updates!
I hope you have all had wonderful weekends and that you are ready for Week 2 of home learning. Just like last week, I have uploaded a Maths, English and SPAG folder for you. Remember to keep practicing your reading and timetables as much as you possibly can. Well done to Harry for being the first one to log into TT Rockstars!! I wonder if anyone can catch him?
Big hugs to you all,
Good morning Osprey class and happy Friday!
I hope you have all had a fabulous first week of Home Learning, that you have made the most of the sunshine and that you've managed to complete a few challenges in between.
Thank you so much to the children who have emailed me this week to let me know how they are getting on and to show me the fantastic things they have been getting up to!
Hope you are all happy and well,
Due to the unfortunate school closure, I have put together a few activities that children can complete whilst at home. I appreciate that some people do not have access to printers/ internet/ craft materials etc. So I have tried to suggest a variety of activities that can be completed.
Our class page will be updated regularly with focused activities as well as any updates.
Get outside, get creative and make the most of the time you have together. As you have a direct email address to contact me, I would love to see pictures of all the activities that you get up to and please don’t be afraid to ask questions. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Most importantly, stay healthy and look after yourselves.
Miss Grant and Mrs Legg
Please can you ensure that children are reading home books as well as leveled books regularly at home, preferably every day. Leveled books can be accessed through Bug Club (https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0), children have their logins in their Learning Diaries, please let me know if you have any problems accessing this.
Spelling and Grammar
I have attached the statutory spelling lists for children to practice at home as well as some suggested activities, these can also be found in the Home Learning Book that was sent home on Friday. Each week I will upload a SPAG activity sheet for children to revise and learn their Grammar skills, again Week 1 SPAG mat was in your child's Home Learning Book. You may also choose to access extra grammar videos and revision activities through https://www.khanacademy.org/humanities/grammar.
It is really important that children are practicing their times tables regularly. I have set up all children with a log in for the website: https://www.timestables.co.uk/. This will enable children to log on and practice a timed test as well as helping them learn individual tables – the children have logged on and practiced this in class so will know how this works.
Maths and English work will be updated within the weekly folders above.
Obviously these are just starter activities and if children would like to extend themselves and take their learning further they are more than welcome to get as creative as they want. I have created a document with a wide range of extra learning links.
