Hi everyone,

 

Well done for all your great work this week. I’ve really enjoyed seeing what some of you have doing. Please keep sending your work and I will do my best to put it on the website.

Ella, I’ve heard that you have been very busy this week. I loved the repeating pattern on your wall- great way of learning, well done!

I will be posting again on Monday for more ideas for home learning.

Bye bye for now, see you back on Monday!

MESSAGE FROM MRS CROWTHER

 

Hi everyone,

 

It's so great to see all your pictures - it looks like you've been keeping busy at home.

 

It's really important to keep getting your exercise even when you can't get out much - have you tried dancing along to some dinosaur songs:

 

Dig it up is all about finding fossils: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3bdw-Ba6HU

 

You can sing and dance to Andy's Dinosaur Rap: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/playlist-andys-dinosaur-raps

 

And stamp your feet to the dinosaur stomp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Imhi98dHa5w

Look after yourselves!

Hi everyone,

 

I have put a link, at the top of this page, for all your pictures and photos. Just click on the star.

There are currently some fantastic resources being set up by various groups to support children at home.

Below I have put a link to the Twinkl learning hub.

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/home-learning-hub

If you click on the green section which says learning hub you will find a daily timetable. Click on each link every day and it will take you to phonic lessons, PE, art, stories and many more great ideas.

You don’t need to sign up to twinkl to access this.

 

Today you could:

  • watch Hey Duggee and do some follow up activities like baking a cake.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b07xdmgk/hey-duggee

 

  • Do a little bit of reading.

 

  • Maths: You could watch Numberblocks- adding episode, I couldn’t find it on iPlayer but there is an episode on YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEtP4Fjnm3U

You could then do some follow up adding in your books

 

  • Don’t forget to look at the science activities from yesterday’s link.

 

  • Also, below are some pictures if you want to practice sentence writing in your books. Just think of a sentence, remember it, then use your sounds to write it. Don't forget capital letters and full stops!

 

  • And lastly, have fun!

 

 

 

 

Sentence Writing

26.03.2020

Hi everyone,

Thank you for all your messages, it has been lovely reading them all.

Happy Birthday Dottie!

I see from your pictures that you have had lots of fun today! I hear that you have been chasing rainbows and saw lots! I did that as well today, but I only saw 4!

James, I'm glad the plant survived being knocked off the windowsill, by your cat :)

Tessa and Edward, well done on using the pictures to write the story of Harry and the Bucketful of dinosaurs.

 

Please keep sending your pictures and messages, it's made me very happy to see that you are all still working hard and most importantly having fun!

26.03.2020

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all well and are finding lots of things to do to keep you busy.

 

Today you could use the story map from yesterday’s post to practice writing a sentence to each of the pictures:

  • Harry found a box in the attic.
  • He washed the dinosaurs
  • He left them on the train
  • Harry was sad.
  • etc....

Here is a link to more fun science experiments you could try at home. You could send me photos of any that you try.

 

Finally, Numberblocks on CBeebies is fantastic for teaching maths concepts, so even if your child watches one or two of them it would be great.

 

Have a good day!

Message from Mrs Crowther:

Hello everyone,

I hope you are happy at home and looking after yourselves. I also hope you are enjoying the activity packs and keeping up with your learning. I am sorry that I have not been able to see you for so long but staying in is very important right now. Don't forget to wash your hands!

Hi everyone,

It's been great seeing all the pictures and photos you have sent and thank you parents for all your messages. I will try to put as many as I can on the school website.

Hope you are all being creative at home. Remember to make sure you get a bit of fresh air everyday, if you can, and do a little bit of reading and writing each day.

Here are some more ideas of what you could do each day:

  • Read the story of Harry and The Bucketful of Dinosaurs, again, using the link from yesterday. Then use the story map below to retell the story to an adult.

Story Map

Story Map 1 Harry and The Bucketful of Dinosaurs.
  • Draw a dinosaur (don't forget to send me your pictures)
  • Make giant bubbles in the garden:

Morning everyone,

Remember to use the daily timetable (if you want to) and the packs I have given you. As our topic this term is dinosaurs, I thought I would give you some more topic ideas.

Search for Shape Monsters on the Topmarks website and practice saying the shape names, you could then draw a dinosaur using 2D shapes.

T-rex picture

You could also listen to the story of Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs.
Don't forget to use the ideas, to practice your daily writing, from the topic sheet I gave you and by keeping a daily diary. If you want to practice your phonics then look at games from the Letters and Sounds website and Topmarks (web links are at the bottom of the page).
Remember that it is important that you have fun and do lots of cutting, sticking, making and exercising.

Hi Children,

I am very pleased you have visited our class page. If you would like to send me any pictures of the work you have done then my email address is: Italy@westcourt.kent.sch.uk or Norway@westcourt.kent.sch.uk. You may need to ask an adult to help you.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to reply to you but I will try to put as many as I can on the school website for you to see.

I have put a timetable on our class page to help you stick to our daily routine, if you want to. Please use the packs I have given you to help with your reading, writing and maths. 

The web links at the bottom of this page will take you to other fun activities to help with your learning- just click the link. 

 

Parents

You are, and always have been, your child’s main teacher. So don’t worry! Just try to do:

  • A bit of reading every day.
  • Maths games or cooking.
  • Some fine motor skill work, Lego, cutting, play dough.
  • Physical exercise.
  • Some free writing like writing a diary 
  • Some art.

 

To help you with ideas I have put some web links below.

 

The web link titled: Phonics Sounds Write, is the scheme we follow in school. Your child will be on unit 9 or 11. Hopefully this website will give you some ideas of how to continue phonic teaching at home.

Topmarks is also a great site and lots of the games and books are tablet friendly.

I will also try to put other activities on the website daily to help you support your child, as well as for them to have fun.

 

Fingers crossed the children will be back in school soon. They are a wonderful bunch of children and I will truly miss seeing them every day!

 

 Happy learning.
