Easter Notice

Good morning Eagle class,

 

As you know your Easter Holidays are starting next week. In light of this, I won't be setting any home learning over the holidays as you all deserve a well earned break. I will start setting work again for home learning on Monday 20th April.

 

However, I have set up an Easter Holiday section with useful websites and packs for activities anyone wants to do over the holiday period. I would love to see any pictures and hear about any news so I can post them to our class page so we can see what everyone has been up to.

 

Over the Easter Holiday the class email will only be checked once a day, which is for important or urgent messages only.

 

Mrs Williams and I want to wish everyone a lovely Easter Holiday, full of fun whilst trying to keep safe. 

Good afternoon Eagle class,

 

I have created an account on Times Tables Rockstars for everyone. This is a great resource to practice and learn times tables, where you can also test yourselves against anyone else that has an account. Please email me for your log in details if you are interested.

Have a relaxing weekend after working hard and keep safe.

 

Mr Warner

Good Morning Eagle Class,

 

Well done on completing your first week of home schooling. I have been really impressed with the effort you have all been putting in. Some of the stuff I have been sent has been brilliant, so keep it going.

 

Please have a relaxing weekend and stay safe.

 

Mr Warner

Good Morning Eagle Class,

I hope everyone is managing to stay safe and still have fun. I know it is difficult to get much exercise in with the restrictions that have been put in place but I have been made aware of a great resource for this. On Youtube, between 9-9.30 there is a live stream available on Joe Wicks's channel. Please give it a go as it is a lot of fun.

 

Mr Warner

Dear parents/carer

 

Due to the unfortunate school closure, I have been putting together some work activities the children can complete whilst being at home. I know this will be a hard time for all and I appreciate that some children will not have access to this work as they may not have computers/printers etc. Therefore, work has been sent home as a pack if required.

I will be updating the webpage regularly with more work and information. Please keep in contact via the class email if you want more work, to share any pictures of what you are getting up to or for special occasions, such as birthdays.

A pack has been created to get the children going, which includes a spellings sheet of common exception words, the first English task and a SPAG mat.

 

I hope everyone keeps safe and well,

 

Mr Warner and Mrs Williams

 

Here is a list of activities children can be doing at any time.

Reading

 

Daily reading, where possible up to 30 minutes, of any home book or piece of information on a website.

Also access to bug club, www.activelearnprimary.co.uk, provides electronic books that are specific to the children’s reading level. This can also be adjusted where necessary.

 

Spellings

 

Year 3/4 common exception words: practice these using different strategies. Write down the definitions then use that word to write a sentence.

You can do as many in a day as you want, or use it as a word of the day to focus on.

 

SPAG

 

There will be a weekly SPAG mat uploaded for you to work throughout the week.

Also, look at some activities on www.khanacademy.org to further challenge yourself.

 

English

 

Any writing is encouraged over the period of time the school is closed. We have been focusing recently on the differences between the Stone Age and what life is like now.

Work will be set as weekly tasks where possible, focusing on producing leaflets, posters, powerpoints or more creative tasks, such as building models.

Please write a diary, so you keep track of everything you have been doing. Make sure you update it daily! You never know who may want to read about it in 20 years’ time.

Also challenge yourself with any of the suggested activities on literacy shed, www.literacyshed.com.

 

Timestables

 

Children have been set up on www.timestables.co.uk where they can play an array of games to become quicker at recalling timestable facts. Scores will be recorded so you will know when you beat your personal best. Children have been shown this website so are familiar with it.

 

Maths

 

I will be uploading regular worksheets for maths, for both year 3s and year 4s. For the first two weeks the focus of the worksheets is on money and time.

To help get more familiar with time and money you can access games on www.topmarks.co.uk.

 

Other resources

 

Topic: You will find an exciting range of activities on www.show.me.uk. You can even research other topics that you find interesting.

Computer coding: Please also look on www.hourofcode.com for activities to complete.
