Examples of work done during school closure

Fifi has designed her own Pokémon and labelled it. ‘They live in the deep, darkest part of the Videon forest. They are very dangerous. Be careful’.

Great work, Naomi, thanks for sharing! She also wanted to share a poem about her magic wand. 

Oisín wanted to show Miss Pearce his spider biscuits that we made after we completed the Sidney the spider workbook.  They were so yummy!

Jack has been busy with phonics, spelling and maths. He also did a field trip around Rottingdean and wrote a diary entry of a day in the life of a smuggler.

Leah has been also doing some baking, drawing, practicing on her bike, and she built an Anderson shelter with her sister and made a clock with her daddy. She dressed up as a pirate when doing her Talk for Writing work and is looking after her miniature garden. 

Nice picture from Adele – thank you!

Bethany made up her own little story and picture comic strip.  She also made a lantern, like her brother. 

Naomi also wrote a story about a bear called Lisy

Fifi wrote a newspaper article about bushfires in Australia

Individual Reading
Please share your child’s individual reading book with them daily for no more than 10 minutes- little and often is often better! Please record a comment in your child’s reading record book so we know they are familiar with the book and have read at home. Children can change their books as regularly as they like once an adult has checked they are confident with their book.

Each week the children will be given about five spellings to practise at home.  At the front of the homework book is a sheet outlining different strategies you can use to practise spellings.  Once children have practised their spellings they should then write a sentence using the word- in the space provided on the sheet – to help put the word into context.

In the front of their homework books is a sheet that contains key skills for the year group that can be practised at home, along with some suggested websites.
Each week, at the bottom of the spellings homework, there will be a brief description of the maths we have been working on that week in class and a practical/online activity to have a go at home which will support this learning.

A Take Home Task will be set home each term which links to the topic for that term.

Thank you for your support
Miss Pearce
