Home learning wc 6th July

 

With the weather having been so changeable, I am sure many of you enjoyed time indoors this week. Hopefully, the home learning packs that had been prepared for you all, kept you busy and engaged for part of that time as well as you finding time to enjoy your favourite film or video game. 

 

We now only have two weeks of home learning left before the summer holiday begins so we hope you manage to engage with as many of the lessons you can this week. Remember, please send a photo of the work you are proud of to your class teachers and we can share it on our website.

 

I would also like to remind you to look in our reading folder and see who our reading champions were last week. This week...it could be you! We have another two weeks before we make our 'Prize draw' to see who wins the £50 vouchers. Every time you pass an AR quiz, you will go into the draw and every time you get your mathletics target for the week, you will go into that draw as well. So...keep on reading and keep on getting your points.

 

We will see you very soon but in the meantime, take care, keep safe and 'be the best you can be'.

A very good morning to you all and we hope you have enjoyed the sunshine that has been beaming upon us during the last week. Another lovely week to look forward to as we say a warm hello to July. Which makes me want to say...where has the time gone?

 

We still have a few weeks left of home learning so we hope you continue to enjoy the lessons your teachers are creating for you. Remember to send photos to your teachers of the work you are particularly proud of and we will share them on your class pages.

 

Just a reminder for the end of term competition for AR and Mathletics. Who will win the £50 voucher I wonder. It could be you!

 

Here are some websites we would like to remind you of because there really are so many opportunites available for you to keep yourselves busy and learning if you would like to do so. In particular, it really is worth exploring:

We miss you all and we really do look forward to seeing you very soon.

We do know the weather is going to be extremely warm this week, so there will be lots of opportunity for you to have fun in the sun and explore plenty of outdoor learning opportunities, whether it is in your gardens, at the park, at the zoo, beside the seaside or somewhere else you enjoy spending time.

 

We also know so many of you are doing wonders with the lessons your teachers are preparing for you though so we hope you enjoy working your way through this weeks lessons too. Which one will be your favourite one I wonder!

 

Last week, we also noticed a huge improvement with Accelerated Reader quizzes being passed and Mathletic points being gained. So please keep it up because the more quizzes you pass and the more times you achieve your weekly point score, the more chances you will have of winning our end of term competition. You are doing amazingly well and we are so pleased with you all.

 

Take care, stay safe and more importantly, be kind to each other.

Thank you to all of the children and parents who have sent some wonderful home learning work into us this week. Have a look in the home learning satchel on your class pages and see your work, or the work your friends have sent in. Enjoy looking at the fantastic writing, excellent art and DT work, some magnificent maths and lovely pictures of you doing exciting activities.
 
We hope you enjoy the lessons your teachers have prepared for you this week and we look forward to seeing more photos of your achievements. There are lots of lovely lessons to engage with.
 
Look out for our new Accelerated Reader and Mathletics challenges that will run until the end of term. 'You' could win a £50 voucher  so make sure you read and quiz on as many books as you can and get as many Mathletics points too. You will go into the end of term draw every time you pass a quiz and every time you meet your Mathletics points target.
 
Good Luck everyone. 
Have fun and stay safe.

With Term 6 well underway, we are pleased to share with you some wonderful new learning opportunities your teachers have prepared for you this week. We hope you have fun working through the lessons and showing your parents how you use your Growth Mindset and Minster Learning Muscles when needed.

 

We love seeing the work you are proud of so please keep sending it to your teachers. We would also like to hear about other things you have achieved and are proud of. Have you learned to ride a bike? Are you now good at baking cakes? Have you made a fantastic lego model? Have you created an amazing den in your garden? Can you play an instrument? Let us know and we can celebrate with you.

A very warm welcome to Term 6 and we hope you all had a sun-drenched Bank Holiday weekend and an enjoyable half-term. Maybe you managed to walk to the beach, bike or scooter there or have fun in your gardens, maybe even splashing around in a paddling pool.

 

We now hope you will be keen to get started with your learning for the Summer term. Your teachers have been working hard to create some lovely lessons for you and we look forward to seeing the work you produce celebrated on our website. So please keep sending your work to us. We love to see the work you are proud of. 

 

Please take care and stay safe. We really look forward to seeing you all very soon.

It only seems a few weeks ago we were welcoming you to Term 5 and now this learn pack is our final set of lessons for this term. Time flies...even in these rather peculiar times.
We hope you have enjoyed the lessons you have engaged with this term, and we hope you enjoy this weeks offer just as much. Indeed, we have some fantastic writing opportunities, some amazing maths, sensational science and terrific topic lessons spread across the year groups.
Do you do your favourite lesson first, or leave it until last? Have you challenged yourself and tried lessons you are less confident with? Possibly realised there are particular lessons you now really love.
 
Remember...keep sharing your work with your teachers so we can all celebrate together. We love seeing your work on the website just as much as you do.
 
If you look on our home learning page in our reading folder (click on the star), we have the names of children who are our champion readers in each year group. Is your name there already? Is your friend a Champion Reader for their year group? Who will it be next week? Keep on reading...and it could be you!
 
As well as enjoying some of the learning resources produced for you, remember to take care of yourselves, rest, relax, have fun and look after each other.

We hope you all enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend and are feeling recharged for the week ahead. It would be lovely if you could share some of the ways you celebrated VE Day by sending in photos to your teachers and we can share and celebrate together. 

Indeed, VE Day is always a day put aside for commemoration and an opportunity to thank and remember our war veterans. This year more than ever, as well as doing this, weekly, we are coming together as a nation, as a community, in order to thank our key workers, to thank everyone, each and every one of you, who are pulling together to make our country safe again, just like our war heroes in years gone by. A time to really show how much we care.

Until we do meet again in school, we hope you continue to enjoy learning at home with the lessons your teachers are preparing for you. Please just do what you can, try your best and enjoy.

 

For those who are wanting to explore some more online learning opportunities, we would like to direct you to

We hope you are all well and have still managed to spend some time outside even though the weather has been a bit unpredictable. Hopefully our coats, boots and umbrellas will soon be replaced with shorts, t-shirts, suncream and sunhats.

From the wonderful work being sent through to our teachers, it seems that so many of you are enjoying the online learning resources being produced for you each week. Please keep sharing your super work because it makes us very proud to see your efforts. We hope you love seeing your work celebrated on our website and we hope it is fun to see what your friends have been doing too. We are confident this weeks pack will provide you with plenty of opportunity to continue to WOW us. ‚Äč

What beautiful weather we had last week! I hope you had opportunity to spend some time outside whether it was playing in the garden, popping out for some exercise or simply taking the bins out! I'm pleased to say that this week looks promising so please make sure that you make time to enjoy the weather. Again, your teachers have been working hard to produce learning resources which will have built upon what you learnt last week and provide you with some new challenges - please familiarize yourself with the Overview document found in the Guidance section before starting the work.

 

I'm pleased to say that our second Home School newsletter is completed - there are lots of activities, updates and information for everyone!

 

Just a little reminder - your teachers would love to know how you are doing and what you have been up to, why not drop them an email?

A warm welcome to Term Five and also to the second online learning pack! Teachers have been hard at work trying to create packs of fun and engaging work for pupils to continue their learning journey whilst at home. Again, please take the time to firstly read their ‘Overview’ document before then accessing the subjects. Some pupils have found it helpful to create a timetable for their learning whilst others enjoy working through a subject each day – the choice is entirely yours! Please don’t hesitate to contact your teacher if you need to. In the interests of variety, from Monday 20th April the BBC will be launching BBC Bitesize Daily. More information can be found at: https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2020/coronavirus-education 

 

I hope that, at this time, it may be helpful to share an extract from Mrs Wheeler’s (The Island Learning Trust CEO) most recent letter to pupils, parents and staff… It is important to reinforce that all home learning is optional. We absolutely recognise that every family is experiencing different stresses and strains, with a range of pulls on their time. We would much rather children and families were mentally and physically healthy and happy rather than battling on with learning because you feel you must. Please always prioritise wellbeing (your child’s and your own) do not feel you need to keep pace with the packs, or offer a full day of learning activities, nor access the many and varied websites on offer. Simply playing with your child is beneficial for their development.

 

 

Home Learning wc 30.03.20

 

Welcome to our first online learning pack! We hope very much that you find the work included helpful in delivering fun and engaging home education. Please, in the first instance read the 'Overview' document which will help to explain the files included.

 

With the Easter holidays approaching we have tried to include a variety of tasks that you can use over the next few weeks. Please pick and choose when and what learning you chose to do, when you are ready. Establish a sensible routine with breaks and be guided by the notes on our website but if overwhelmed keep reading and the basics going…and do not feel concerned about the rest. Children will return to school and we will pick them up from wherever they are.
