Welcome to the Summer term!
Welcome back, I hope you have all had a lovely Easter holiday and are ready to continue to learn. This term will start off slightly different to normal as we continue to learn from home whilst we follow the Government guidelines.
I would also like to say a huge thanks to parents and guardians for their continued support; you are doing such an amazing job during what is a very unsettling time. Please don’t panic or stress yourselves out over your child’s learning, just try your best and I am only a message or phone call away if you need help and support with anything.
Our first topic, ‘Rivers’ will take us on a learning journey to discover all the different components of a river. During this topic we will learn all about how the landscapes are changed due to rivers. Our second topic will take us back in time to the Roman era. We will learn all about how Romans lived, fought and survived.
Our English work will be a mixture of online activities including reading, comprehension, writing, spelling and grammar activities. These will be updated with daily activities on the Padlet on Class Dojo so please make sure you look at it every day. Link to the Padlet here:
Don't forget to send me some of your fabulous work on your portfolio or messages as I love to see it. And remember - keep reading too!
Maths will continue to build on our previous learning using the White Rose Home Learning daily planning. It gives you a video to watch the content and the activities to follow together with answers so you can check your work. Don’t worry if you can’t print out the activity sheet as you can always just write the answers down or draw and copy out the worksheet yourself. Keep practising your fluency using Times Table Rockstars, Mathletics, Classroom Secrets and the other maths links on the Padlet.
For the wider curriculum, I will continue to set a range of activities on the Padlet on Dojo linked to Science, History, Geography, Art & Design, Design Technology, PE, ICT, Spanish, RE and PSHE so children can further develop skills and key concepts in these areas.
There are also a wide variety of other ideas, resources, help guides etc on the Padlet, so please keep referring back to it as I will update it with any new guidance or resources that I think will be beneficial. I will also update the daily tasks on here and post it on Dojo every Monday morning, so that you can view the activities for that week.
Please remember that home learning is a vital part of the current curriculum as it allows for consolidation opportunities as well as preparing for future challenges.
Here’s to a great summer term, hopefully we will back together before the end (keep your fingers crossed).
