Hi everyone. Hope the rain isn’t getting you down! We are having lots of ‘wet plays’ at school too and they are not much fun!!! In Maths today the Year 1s will continue their work in quarters and the Year 2s will be working on ‘quarter past’ and ‘quarter to’. I have set the next chapter of the book we are reading on Purple Mash if you want to read it. In school today, following on from our favourite animal earlier in the week, we will be inventing an animal. We will be drawing it and adding information about it. For example, what this invented animal is called, what it likes to eat, where it lives and if it is nocturnal or not. Let your imaginations go wild!!!! Hope you have fun with this task and please send any pictures to Ms Robey for our topic page. Hope this is al ok. Mrs R.

In Maths Year 1s will be working on halves of amounts and Year 2s on temperature reading. The links are below. I have also assigned reading on Purple Mash. You may wish to have a go at making an animal footprint trap (on this week's home learning) as that is what we will be doing in school this afternoon. Hope this is all ok. Mrs R.

Hi everyone. I hope you have all had a great weekend. The Maths link is below. Year 1s will be finding a half and Year 2s will be learning about litres. For English I would like you to have a go at writing about your favourite animal/s. This is one of the activities on the KS 1 page of our website. Can you do some research about them? Where do they live? What do they eat? What fascinating facts can you find out about them? You could make this onto a leaflet or  poster. You have two days for this task if you wish to complete it. I have assigned the reading on Purple Mash. Hope this works smoothly as last week there were a number of glitches. Fingers crossed! Mrs R.

Maths is accessed via the link below. Year 1s will be recognising coins and Year 2s measuring mass in kilograms. Hope that is all ok. Mrs R.
 

29th June Children at Home

 

Hi everyone. Hope you have had a really enjoyable weekend. This week  we are going to be writing instructions. At home, you can decide to write a set of instructions for whatever you like! In school, we are writing instructions for how you can make a cardboard  insect with moving parts. At home, you might write instruction for making a model, or making a sandwich, or a friendship bracelet, or making an ice cream...the list is endless!  I have attached some examples to help. Remember to make your instructions clear by using numbers. Also remember to use the imperative. That means you will say 'Put the ice cream in', rather than 'You put the ice cream in'. This will be the writing task for the the next two days, so you have time to make the 'thing' before you write about it. I have assigned reading on Purple Mash if you choose to use it. Maths is via the link below. Year 1s are working on ordering numbers and Year 2s measuring mass in grams. Hope this is all clear.
Remember you have your Classroom Secrets booklets as well and all the lovely topic ideas for this week on our website. I look forward to seeing some rubbings! Mrs R.

26th June 2020

Hi everyone. Friday once again. I have allocated the next chapter of the book we are reading. You could also finish your Summer poem. In class we have used the line 'Summer is' for each line of our poem. We have selected our very best adjectives to add. I suggest writing 3 lines, carefully selecting from the ideas you collected yesterday. You may wish to write your poem up very neatly and then add illustrations which go along with the Summer theme. Today, take the time to complete some of the maths activities in the Classroom Secrets booklet. You can also practise times tables and number bonds on the Topmarks website. As ever, there is the family maths challenge accessed by the link below. Hope this is all ok. Mrs R.

25th June Children at Home

Hello everyone. Another hot day ahead! I have set the next chapter of our book to read. In school yesterday we began to collect ideas in preparation of writing some Summer poems. First of all, we went on a 'Summer hunt' around school, looking for signs of Summer. For example, we noticed open windows, butterflies, flowers in bloom. Then we brainstormed other things that we associated with Summer, such as the seaside, beaches, ice-creams....Today we are going to match summer things to interesting adjectives. For example- hot, boiling sun, rainbow coloured flowers, and  furry, fluttering bees etc.. Can you match an adjective to something that tells is it is summer? Tomorrow we will be taking our best descriptions to make into a poem. Maths link is below. Year 1s will be comparing numbers and using 'greater than' and 'less than' and Year 2s will be comparing mass. Hope this is all ok. Mrs R.
 

24th June Children at Home

HI everyone. Middle of the week! I have set the next chapter for the book on Purple Mash and the comprehension quiz that goes with it. The Year 2 book is quite challenging, but accessible with careful reading. Take your time so that you get the best score you can! There is no other English task today, so you can take your time and read the chapter thoroughly. The Maths link is below. Year 1s will be comparing numbers and Year 2s will be using number skills with length. 
This afternoon you might want to have a go at creating a nest. The children in school did this yesterday and had a magnificent ideas. Some made nests for birds and others for mice and squirrels. Some children also thought about how the nest could be hidden so that predators could not get in. Why not make one too and send your photo to Ms Robey? Many thanks. Mrs R.

Year 1s will be sharing into equal groups and Year 2s will be sorting 2D and 3D shapes. In school today we will be trying to find a mini beast for each of the letters of the alphabet. For example : A-ant, B- beetle etc.. How many of the 26 letters of the alphabet can you match to a mini beast? It is harder than it seems! Make sure you know all the letters of the alphabet and can say the letter name as well as the sound. You can always google the 'Lego ABC song' if you need a reminder or simply want to sing! Hope that is all ok. Remember, do what you can and don't worry. Mrs R.

Whole School Project

Here are some extra online resources that are currently free to sign up to:

 

  • https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/ - This is the reading scheme we predominantly use in school (Oxford Reading Tree). You can sign up for free and have access to some of the books we would have in school as an eBook! It isn’t all of the books unfortunately, as you would need a subscription but ORT have said that while schools are closed to some children, they are making more eBooks available. You just have to filter the collection by looking at the ‘Levels’ filter and selecting ‘Book Bands’ – it will drop down a menu with all of the book band colours we have in school. Find you child’s band colour and browse the eBooks they have available. There are also other eBooks available on there from ORT – filtered by age. Please be aware though - you do have to purchase some of the wider collection – just use the free selection if you wish.
     
  • https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/ - This is a kids version of a teacher resource site. They have interactive games and activities for SPaG, Reading and Maths – all for free while they are testing their new site as a BETA. Please feel free to sign up while it is available for free. On here, you need to find your child’s year group at the top. The drop down menus allow you to search for games within their year group to support learning you have done at home. The reading area is interesting – they have created reading comprehension activities for texts pitched at their year group – these may be worth giving a try to support reading at home too.

 

I am trying to source reading resources in particular, as we cannot allow reading books to be shared/swapped within school, according to government guidance. I do hope that these websites offer some support and ideas to help reading at home while we are away from school. Again, all of this is completely optional. I am simply providing as many resources as I can find that are of good quality to support those families who wish to use them.

 

Thank you!

Mrs Roche

Wednesday 20th May

Hi Class 2. Today is going to be a very hot day. Can you write a list of things you could do today? It may be a real list or a made up list or a combination. Here is my example:
  1. Today I could go to Splash Landings and play in the water and enjoy the outdoor part in the beautiful sunshine.
  2. I might play in the garden and slide quickly into my paddling pool.
  3. It would be a great day to have a delicious picnic. 
  4. I might make a HUGE ice cream sundae with three flavours of ice cream, sprinkles on top and a long squirt of strawberry sauce!
  5. I could go to the boiling beach, play in the hot sand and splash around excitedly in the cool sea.
Make sure each idea on your list starts with a capital letter and that you include adjectives and adverbs.  Year 2s notice I have included a list of items in 4 and 5. Can you add a list of  three things and include the correct punctuation? It would be great to do this list on paper so you can practise your handwriting. Remember all lower case letters start on the line! If you like you can send a picture of your work to Ms Robey to send to me.
Fingers crossed that there is something on your list that you can do today!
 
 
Maths is attached below.
 
 
There is no spelling work today. Instead please would you draw, paint or colour a sunny summer picture. It might be a picture of some of things you included on your list.
 
As ever, do what you can and don't worry! Mrs R.

 

Tuesday 19th May

Morning class 2. Hope you are feeling good today. I have set a writing activity on Purple Mash. It is writing ingredients and instructions for making a witch's potion! I am looking for really gruesome ingredients and what your spell is is for. There is an example set of instructions and also a sheet to write on. You can do this online if you wish or writing on paper is fine too. English spelling is assigned on Purple Mash too. The link for today's Maths is below. Remember to keep practising those number bonds and times tables- please if you can.
Many thanks for all your help. Remember do what you can but don't worry! Mrs R.

Monday 18th May

 

Morning everyone! Happy Monday! The Maths is set as usual on White Rose. I had some super photos of the toy race set last week. Thank you for all your help with this! Some children in year 2 had had a go at the family challenge-thank you again for helping with this. Keep practising those numbers bonds too. These are on Purple Mash and/or on 'Hit the Button' on the Topmarks website. These are really useful things to keep practising until we go back to school. For the Year 2s, the maths activity on White Rose today is quite easy so please practise times tables. If you are finding the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables too easy, then work on the 4 and 6 times tables.
 Year 1s we are moving onto spellings on Purple Mash. Remember you can choose yourself to have more work on phonics on Purple Mash. Phase 5 would be good to go over again. Year 2s also have spelling work set on Purple Mash.
 
If you are looking for something more creative why not try a lockdown poem? This is an example of one posted on the Purple Mash Twitter account. It  could be a whole family effort!
 
Remember there are also lots of practical ideas on the topic bit of the school website.
 
Remember do what you can and don't worry. Mrs R.

Friday 15th May

Hi everyone. The end of another week. Thank you for all the lovely things you have sent to share with me this week. I have had some fantastic work sent in response to the video 'Catch It'. Today the children can finish off their storyboards and illustrations and have a go at some of the other practical activities suggested. The children could make a cover for their story. Don't forget to include the title, the author, and the illustrator. Perhaps you could also make a back cover with a blurb?
Remember there are lots of practical tasks to try on the topic sheet that is on the website. 
 
Year 2s have Friday's Maths challenge on the link below. You can also play 'Hit the button' on the Topmarks website. If you are finding the 3 times tables too easy, then have a go next at the 4 times table and 6 times table. Think about how they link to the 2 times table and 3 times table...
Year 1s I would like you to do something different for Maths today. Here are the instructions:
 
Choose 10 of your cuddly toys that you would like to see in race. Decide which toy would win the race, then who would come next and so on until 10th place. Make your cuddly toys some rosettes (or badges) to show which position they came in. These are the rosettes/badges that you will need to put on the toys: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc up to 10th place. Sellotape them on your toys and send me a photo of you and the racers with their badges on. That's it! Hope you enjoy this task!  You may have a brother or sister who might enjoy this activity with you so hope you have fun trying it out!
Have lovely weekends. Remember do what you can and don't worry. Mrs R.

  Questions 1, 2 and 3 are most  suitable for Year 2s and they may need a bit of help here too, particularly with number 3.

Morning class 2! Hope you are feeling good today. I have attached the Maths lesson for today. Also have another go on' Hit the button' if you get chance.
There is something a little different today for you try. There is a short video for you to watch. It is called 'Catch It'. It is lovely and you will all enjoy it!  I liked it as it made me think of all our lovely work on Africa. After you have watched it, can you make a storyboard of 6 pictures that make up the story? Year 1s can write a sentence (or more!) to go with each picture and Year 2s write your own version of this story. Year 2s try  to add lots of detail to your writing.  You could do this on paper or on Purple Mash. This will be the activity for today and tomorrow so you lots of time to do it.  The link to the video is below. There are also some great fun and practical activities that go with the video. You could have a go at some of these. You can access the clip form the website link and watch it on You Tube and then then the activity pack is downloadable ('KS 1 activity pack')
Hope this is all ok. Please send any photos of what you have done to Ms Robey. I love seeing what you are all doing!
Do what you can and don't worry!  Mrs R.

Wednesday 13th May

Morning all! Hope we are all feeling good today. I have set the Maths work as usual and the Bitesize activity. I have also assigned phonic work to the Year 1s and spelling work to the Year 2s.
 As today is national Numeracy Day, I would like the children to play some games. 'Hit the button' on the Topmarks website is great for practising number bonds and times tables. Year 1s can work on bonds to 10 and 20 and Year 2s can select times tables to practise.  I have added the link to the Topmarks website below. 
If you have not got internet access then board games, dominoes or card games are great Maths practice too.On the Maths page of the school website there is a section about the games that you could play. See the link below.
A lot of children have been busy making bug hotels. I have had some lovely photos sent to me about how you have made them. Try the 'living and not living' quiz on the Purple Mash website. This has been allocated as a 2Do. 
Remember to do what you can and don't worry! Many thanks. Stay safe. Mrs R.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

Tuesday 12th May

Morning! Hope everyone is feeling good. There are some lovely messages being sent for other children on our 'shout out' board so please have a look! I have allocated phonic work for Year 1s on Purple Mash and spelling for Year 2s. The Florence Nightingale activity is also on Purple Mash. Some children have made a really good start on this. It is great to see them putting themselves in Florence Nightingale's shoes.  If you prefer to do work on paper that is fine too! Ms Robey sends pictures of the children's work to me. The link for today's maths is below and the activity is on the link to Bitesize. Do what you can and don't worry. Hope that is all ok. Mrs R.
 

 

Monday 11th May

 

Hi everyone. Hope you enjoyed the weekend and the VE Day celebrations. Thank you to everyone who sent a message to our 'shout out' board. It was lovely to hear from you! 

I have set phonics for Year 1 on Purple Mash. Year 2 have a spelling activity set.  The Maths lesson link is below and the worksheets for this lesson are on the Bitesize website which link from the activity. 
There are a range of activities on Purple Mash to do with Florence Nightingale as it is the anniversary of her birth tomorrow. You could try the interview activity. As this may be a longer task this will be the work for today and tomorrow.
Remember do what you can and don't worry. Many thanks. Mrs R.

Thursday 7th May

 

Hi everyone. Hope everyone is feeling ok. I am getting lots of work on Purple Mash so thank you very much for that. I am also getting some lovely messages. I think we are all missing school and each other a lot now. Because of this, I have created a 'shout out' board for our class on Purple Mash. You can send pictures and messages to the children in the class for us all to share. You can update everyone with what you have been doing. This is the writing task for today. I have set this as a 2Do.
I have attached today's Maths lesson as well. Also keep on practising adding within 20. 
Remember do what you can and don't worry about what you can't. There will be no work set tomorrow as it is VE Day. Take care and stay safe. Mrs R.
 
 

 

Wednesday 6th May

HI everyone. Hope all is ok with everyone. I have set today's Maths lessons and link is attached. Also remember to keep practising those numbers bonds to 10 and to 20.  Friday is VE Day and normally in school we would be building up to this. Please have a conversation about why this is an important date. I have provided a link to make some VE day bunting. You can just cut out paper and do this if you want to and then put it up ready for Friday. I have also set a 2Do of the Union flag if you wish to do it. Hope that is all ok. Remember do what you can and don't worry. Any problems please message Ms Robey. Many thanks. Mrs R.

GAMES

Play this game with a partner. You will need a coloured pencil each and two dice. Take turns to roll the dice and use the scores to make a 2 digit number. You can decide which order to use the digits, e.g. if you throw a 2 and a 5 you can choose 25 or 52. What number do you need to add to make 100? Colour this number on the 100 square. If this number is already coloured, miss a go. Who has the most coloured squares at the end?
