Please find below the suggested home learning and resources for this week. As ever, this is suggested but not essential. We would love to see what you've been up to on the Padlets (the links are at the bottom of this page) or via email to the contact page or the enquiries email address, but equally, please feel free to ignore these if they're not helpful or useful. We appreciate that this time is challenging - you are trying to parent and teach your children so please let us know if we can provide any further resources to support your home learning, if you are choosing to do some. We are here to help in any way that we can.
If you or your child are finding this in any way overwhelming, at what is already a confusing time, please take a step back. The happiness of your family is paramount and these tasks and activities are here for those families that feel they want and need them - that will not be everybody. There is no competition - we will not be asking children to 'show and tell' what they have been doing when we get back to school as we know that everybody's circumstances are different and we have no desire to put any unnecessary pressure on any of you. Keeping your child happy and safe are all that are important right now. If you have space in your day for anything school-related, the links are below. If not, that's fine too. You can still send us photos or emails to show us what you've been up to - we'd love to hear from you!
Week Beginning 27th April
Below are the four short video tutorials and worksheets for Science this week.
Welcome to the Summer term! We know it looks a lot different to the beginning of term that we would all have liked but we've tried to put together some tasks that will move your learning forwards, whilst also being manageable at home. We hope that we have achieved that, but please let us know if you need more or less - this is unfamiliar for us all and the last thing we want to do is cause unnecessary stress or an overwhelming amount to achieve. Equally, we want you to have enough of a challenge to keep you busy and keep you learning. There is no expectation that all of these tasks will be completed and we won’t be checking up on you! Please let us know how you get on so that we can adapt if necessary for as long as the school has to remain closed.
For your spellings, please choose ten words from the Y3/4 spellings list in the 'Literacy Resources' section of this page (scroll down) and also challenge yourself on Times Tables Rockstars as often as you are able to.
The links below will take you to padlets for class 2. We really want to support parents at this challenging time and I fear that after a few days, some pupils may feel isolated once the excitement of not going to school has passed. So, we are creating two padlets for each class - one is for pupils to add what they have been reading, the title of the books, a brief summary of the story and what they enjoyed. The second padlet is for them to add something that has made them smile. Once something has been written, the class teacher will need to check it before it is posted, so don't be disheartened if you can't see your post instantly.
