Term 5-6

Welcome back to the summer term! Attached are all the documents you will need for the term ahead. There are three spelling sheets here: one is the weekly rules that we will be learning in class and practise weekly through dictations, as well as a word list for both year 4 and year 5 that are common words the children should be learning. Please try and look at these at home too.

Remote Learning TERM 4

 

If you are unable to come into school (for example, if your household needs to isolate) please base your home learning on the grid below. 

All of the resources that you will need are here on the class page. You can complete the tasks in any order and there is still the expectation for you to learn your spellings, read daily and practice your multiplication facts. Try and complete your work to the best of your ability. Don't forget, should you need to contact us, you can do so in the usual way by emailing the class email. We will still be checking it daily.

Hooray, the last remote learning day!

We are nearly there Hares. It would be fab to see you all in our final Zoom lesson-we will be creating daemons just like in Northern Lights as our last day focussing on Philip Pullman. We look forward to seeing you all at 11.45.

Don't forget to check out our last masked reader of the week too. Did you spot that yesterday's was our very own Mrs Seymour?

Miss Sharman has also recorded the second chapter of The Scarecrow and his Servant for you to enjoy.

World Book Day Smart

Back to school...what to expect

Thursday 4th March 2021

Welcome to World Book Day!

Stay in your pyjamas, check out the activities, teacher book tastings and some of the fab World Book Day illustrator/author workshops. Most importantly, HAVE FUN!

Can you guess today's masked reader?

See you at 11.45. Remember to come with a famous book character description for some fun drawing and guessing.

Wednesday 3rd March 2021

Good morning Hares!

How accurate were you with your masked reader guesses? I think one or two of you managed to guess it straight away - well done smiley

Attached is your learning for the day and the resources that you may find helpful. In tomorrow's live lesson we will be celebrating World Boook Day; please start to think about an interesting book character that you could describe to the rest of the class for this lesson-reasonably well-known ones would be good as the resto of the class are going to try and guess/draw your characters!

You will be making Top Trumps today in English and continuing with your area work in maths.

Keep up the amazing work and see you at 11:45 tomorrow,

Miss Gardner and Miss Sharman

Tuesday 2nd March 2021

Hello Hares,

Thank you so much for all of the work that has been sent in so far. You have all clearly been inspired by the texts that we are using - they are all amazing pieces of work.

Have you managed to guess any of the masked readers yet?

Have a great day and see you all at 11:45am,

Miss Gardner and Miss Sharman

Monday 1st March 2021

Good Morning Hares! 

Happy World Book Week!

Enjoy a range of activities linked to reading and Philip Pullman this week in our English lessons. Don't forget to try and guess the masked reader today on the main classes page here...reveal at the end of the day.

Don't forget to send us your work to share in our class gallery. We are also going to be making a class display for when we are back next week and would love to have your contributions.

See you at 11.45.

Welcome to Term 4 Hares!

We hope you had an enjoyable and restful half term break. We are hitting the ground running with lots of exciting tasks and activities linked to our Oxford topic. Have you had a chance to watch the video that all of the adults in school made? Can you work out who is who?

 

In maths this week (and next) it may be helpful if you have a ruler to hand. So take some time this morning to have a rummage through your pencil cases to make sure that you have one ready!

Good morning Hares,
 

Welcome to week 5, it's wellbeing week!

From 1-7 February 2021 schools, youth groups, organisations and individuals across the UK will take part in Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is Express Yourself.

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.

For Children's Mental Health Week 2021 we will be encouraging children (and adults) to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas.
For more information, visit https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/ 

 

Remember, these are not normal times so this isn't 'normal' teaching. Please be kind to yourselves (and each other). Just do what you can with the learning and tasks that are being set. We do not expect you to complete every single task every single day, although some of you may want to, and that is also fine. If you are struggling with any tasks or any of the work that has been set then please email the class email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

 

See you all at 11:45am

 

Miss Gardner and Miss Sharman

 

Friday 29th January 2021

Hooray, Friday is here! Well done on some fantastic learning in Music week. We have particularly loved your creativity and performance work, thank you for sharing it all with us! Attached here is the beginning of the next part of Clockwork for you to enjoy. Please try and keep up with listening or watching these as we will be looking whole story next week in English.

We look forward to seeing you at 11.45 for our body percussion performance, sharing our learning and our Friday quiz.

Katie's additional question on the Orchestra Maths:

If all the Brass and half the Strings went on holiday to Majorca, and a quarter of the remaining orchestra went to Paris, how many were left in London? Answer to be shared on Monday!

Good morning Hares,

We are halfway through the week already!

We are really enjoying seeing all of your work that you have been sending in, we will be updating the Hares gallery shortly so why not have a look to see some examples of all of your amazing work. Please do keep sending work you are proud of in as we love seeing what you are up to.

https://www.classicfm.com/composers/grieg/news/tram-grieg-melody/ Matilda sent in this link to an article that relates to Edvard Grieg - how amazing would it be to have a tram that plays a special tune when it pulls up outside your house!?!

 

Attached are things that you may need for your learning today. Remember, we do not expect you to print out everything as you can always copy down calculations, draw out tables and makes notes. Of course, if you would like to print out the tasks then you can.

See you at 11:45am,

How are you all getting on with the home learning so far this week? 

In maths today we will be looking at some biscuit and cake recipes. You will see that we have added an extra challenge on the maths task for you to try some baking (if you want to). This would be a good way to show off you mass skills that you have been working on so far this week.

Remote learning - Wednesday 6th January 2021

Good morning Hares,

 

It was great to see so many of you on Zoom yesterday. We really enjoyed seeing all of your smiley faces again after the Christmas break.

The answers from yesterday's maths have been uploaded so make sure you have a quick look to see how you have done.

We have another busy day ahead of us. Make sure you have had a go at the tasks from yesterday before starting on the tasks from today.

 

See you at 11:45am!

Remote learning Tuesday 5th January 2021

Good morning Hares,

 

We hope that you are all excited and ready for our first day of remote learning. Both Miss Sharman and myself are really looking forward to seeing you on zoom at 11:45am.

 

Below you will find a document that sets out your tasks for the day. Each day you will need come and visit our class page to see what activities and tasks we have set for you. We will try as hard as we can to not attach too many documents for you. 

 

Today you will need to make sure that you can see a copy of the attached image of a submerged city for your reading task.

 

If you get stuck on ideas for your English task then there is an example that we have put up for you to have a look at.

 

Remember, as well as you set daily tasks you should still be reading, practicing your spellings and times tables and checking for Mathletics tasks.

 

See you all at 11:45 - don't forget your pencils and paper!

 

Miss Gardner and Miss Sharman

Welcome back to term 3!

 

Whilst it isn't quite the start we were expecting, there is still lots of new and exciting learning to come. We have uploaded the new topic web for the term which introduces our new topic - Oxford. As well as this there is a new home learning grid with tasks related to our topic and spelling grids.

 

You may notice that there are a few different spelling grids for this term - during our remote leaning we will be looking at the main Hares spelling grid and teaching you the spelling rules that are on there but, as part of your remote learning tasks we would like you to look at your year group spelling lists and have a go at learning the words that are on there as well. These are some of the words that you should be able to spell by the end of the year.

 

Keep practicing you spellings using the strategies that we have looked at.
See you all soon,

Miss Gardner and Miss Sharman

Home learning due to Covid-19 isolation

 

If your child is isolating at any point, please refer to the class' current home learning grids and spelling lists below for home learning tasks. In addition, your child should log in to Mathletics and complete the tasks they have set on there. They should also be reading and discussing what they have read with an adult on a daily basis.

Welcome to the new year, Hares!

 

We hope that you have had a great first week back, we have really enjoyed working with you.

 

Below are copies of the work that have been sent home in your homework book.

You have:

- a spelling sheet - you will work on these words in school, but also practise them at home.

- a homework grid - choose a task to complete each week.

- a reading record - complete it each time you finish a book and see how many of the challenges you can complete this year.

- your Mathletics logins have been sent home and you should log on each week to see what work has been set.  Feel free to play maths games once you've finished your assigned task.

 

If for some reason you are unable to come to school, please use these as a basis for your work.  Be original and work to the best of your ability.  For example, you could:

- write out your spellings in super sentences in your best handwriting.

- review a book from your reading challenge.

- choose a task from the homework grid and take the time to plan, produce, edit and publish to a very high quality.

 

Keep up the good work!

 

Miss Gardner and Miss Sharman

Hello Hares!

 

Many thanks for joining us either in the classroom or over zoom this week!

 

As promised, here is the suggested home learning for you! 

Please feel free to work through the grid at your own pace. We have attached some support resources as well as some useful websites.

We wish you a relaxing and fun summer holiday. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all in September.
