Welcome Back! (kind of)
I hope you have all have a wonderful break with your families! The start of 2021 hasn't really gone according to plan, it's far too quiet in school without you! I look forward to seeing you all again when we are allowed to return to normal, but on wards and upwards.
Just because we can't all be in school together, doesn't mean that we can't all continue to learn together. Below in an outline of what we would be doing if we were back in school as normal, with a full range of resources attached. Once you have completed a piece of work, email it to me and I will provide feedback like I usually would in class. If you have any questions, feel free to let me know and I will help as best I can given the circumstances.
Also, now is a perfect time to get yourselves onto Reading Eggs and TT Rockstars every day! That way you can keep your brains active and keep the cobwebs out!
We will be working on our knowledge of descriptive language, challenging people at home to out think us (yeah....like that's going to happen) You will then use that language to create a character, describe a setting and create a mini comic book!
For phonics please continue to use 'Fast Phonics' on reading eggs on a daily basis, in addition to this, here are some very useful websites.
www.phonicsplay.co.uk - Parents free access to their resources, there are a huge collection of resources and games that we use in school regularly, to assist the children's phonics knowledge.

In Maths this week you will be using your division skills, that we began working on last term, to solve a range of problems, these will mostly involve your 2/5/10s times tables.
This week you will be building on your knowledge of verbs, identifying verbs in sentences and using verbs in sentences of your own. Adverbs describe how you do something rather that what you are doing, work through the activity spotting the adverbs as you go.
Read through the information about the habitats and animals that live there.
Choose one of the habitats below and an animal that lives there. Draw the habitat and the animal, then explain why the animal is suited to live in that particular habitat. You can use the word bank on page 2 to help you.
This term we are going to be studying the 1960s. Last term we discussed Neil Armstrong who did something very important in the 1960s. Research and answer the questions about Neil Armstrong and find out five extra facts about the 1960s.
For computing this term, we would like you to log into Discovery Espresso using the link below and click on CODING - Block Coding - Start from Level 2 - Refresher (Level 1) and work your way through the program each week. It will given you a guide and examples of what to do for each activity/session.
Linked to Science, you are going to get the chance to be creative and create a 3D art piece depicting an animal in their natural habitat.
Joe Wicks to the rescue! PE with Joe will be returning next week now that schools are once again closed to most pupils. In school we will be participating in some of these daily workouts and we encourage the children at home to do the same.
We will be learning the song Can't Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake. Listen to this and see if you can sing along. Clap in time to the beat. How many beats are in each regular section of words? Can you keep up with the faster sections?
Life is very different at the moment, so lets think about what we would like to be doing if things were in out control! What choices would you make if you were in control?
