Are you fed up with asking the question 'How was school today?' and getting the response 'fine'?
Our new weekly blogs will give you more information about what your child is doing in school. This will mean that you can ask meaningful questions to find out about their learning.
Week commencing 4th December 2020
Term 4 Week 3
Week Commencing 8th March 2021
We are so glad that we are able to welcome all the children back to school this week, we have really missed them all. It is Science Week in school this week and we have lots of exciting learning opportunities arranged for the children. During the week the children will have access to three live lesson sessions on Live Lambing, Farming Robots and Vets School, these lessons will form part of our English learning for the week and the children will be required to take notes and identify key learning points and raise questions that they have from watching the lessons. These lessons will also act as a stimulus for other related work that the children will be doing in a variety of curriculum areas. We have also planned for the children to have a session outside planting seeds as part of this week of science, this will take place on Wednesday for year 6, please could you ensure that your child has change of footwear and a suitable coat for this activity. In maths children will be working on the shape work they completed at home last week and will be considering area and perimeter work. Our planting session in the outside classroom will also provide an opportunity for the children to practically apply their maths learning, working out the perimeter and area of the planting beds and answering associated maths questions. We are keen to continue with daily physical activity and whilst the current restrictions are in place we will be completing our daily mile. To further motivate the children with this we are taking part in a virtual challenge run by the RAF, The Lancaster Challenge, and we will be aiming to walk 500km (collectively in each class) by May 17th. Reading continues to be a focus as we return to school, children are still expected to read daily at home for a minimum of 20 minutes and your continued support is invaluable and very much appreciated. As previously mentioned, we are really looking forward to seeing the children back in school from Monday 8th March and we feel that the planning for the Science week will enable the children to ease back into familiar routines as smoothly as possible. We hope that you all have an enjoyable week as we move slowly towards more normality.
