Paras has asked if you can do some baking as a homework challenge - this is a fantastic idea!
If you’re doing any cooking with your families this weekend, why not take a photo and email it to me; we can all see what each other have been doing over the weekend.
Ayisha - thank you for your TT Rockstars challenge - it really was a challenge for a Friday!
I’ve set you all quite a tricky one......good luck
Friday 27th March
Good morning everyone!
What a tiring day it was yesterday - who would have thought having a penguin in school would have caused so much extra work
Today, I would like you to go back to your packs and complete 20 minutes on each maths, reading and SPaG. Then for your electronic learning, I would like you to finish your newspaper articles - please remember to 'hand-in' so that I can see the finished articles. So far they are looking great! There has been brilliant use of humour in Rio's, Thomas has made a brilliant start and I am sure one day Kayla will make a fantastic journalist....great effort guys!
Please also make sure that you are doing some form of PE - it's good for your brain as well as your body. If you are still able to move after a week of Joe Wicks then you could tune in to him again tomorrow at 9.....if, like me, your legs now ache, then why not try some yoga instead? This link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhYtcadR9nw will take you to cosmic kids yoga. It's a nice one to do with younger siblings as well because it tells you stories.
There are lots of exciting ways to do your learning online now. However please always remember to use search engines safely. If you are not sure, then always ask an adult to help. Part of our electronic learning time next week will be to do some e-safety lessons.
Have a lovely day
Hi everyone! Can you believe that the penguin is still causing problems here at school? It's now chasing Miss Hart around the library!
A couple of you have said that your newspaper report is talking about aliens.....try closing Purple Mash down and starting again - I set blank templates so you could do your own. If this doesn't work, then you can just ignore the alien part and type over it.
For those of you have trouble with the pictures, you can right click on the ones on this page, then save them onto your computer. That way you can then use them in Purple Mash.
I hope you are having fun with this - I cannot wait to read them!
Thursday 26th March
Today I have come in to school for the first time since Monday.......I could not believe what I saw!
A penguin, that's right, a PENGUIN has broken in to the school!
Today, I would like you to spend your learning time writing a newspaper article about the penguin that broke in to school.
Think about the features of a newspaper article - use quotes (check back later to find out what Miss Sexton thought!) I will send you a To-Do on Purple Mash to complete this activity.
You might like to include facts about penguins and maybe even eye witness accounts of those that saw the penguin walking in to school.
You could include these photos!
I look forward to seeing your newspaper reports at the end of the day!
Thanks for your emails!
Paras - I agree! I'm tired after doing to workout too. Just think how fit everyone will be though doing this every day!
Leo - thanks for the riddle! I'll share it for everyone to try and work out. Can you email the answer to me so we can share it at the end of the day?
You can also all email me your guesses.
Leo's riddle: I stand in the corner of a building and I never move but my children travel everywhere. What am I??
Wednesday 25th March
Good morning everyone!
It’s another lovely sunny day – remember you can go out for a walk with your family so long as you stay away from other people. It’s important to do this to keep everyone safe.
Why not start your day with PE with Joe Wicks again:
Today I would like you to do another 20 mins of maths, SPAG and reading in your packs. Remember to keep using your good strategies. If there are questions you are finding particularly tricky, why not send me a picture of it via email and I’ll share it with everyone on the class web page. It’s likely it will help lots of you.
Great news!! David Walliams is reading some of his stories for children every day at 11am. I know lots of you are huge fans, so why not check out his website:
For your electronic learning, remember that TT Rockstars ha another tournament this week. I have also set another purple mash task. If we were in school we’d be looking at statistics, so there is an activity based on graphs for you to complete.
Have a lovely day
Well done Lillie for catching up with all your learning! We all hope you are feeling better
Ayisha - what a great start to your project on the Ancient Greeks!
Thank you for your email Simarpreet - well done for working through your pack. Remember to follow the instructions on the letter, You only need to do 20 minutes of one of the maths papers a day. You will eventually then finish them all.
Thank you for yours too Vilte - I am currently working out how I can record your spelling test for you . For now just go past the spelling part and carry on with the rest of the paper.
I'm so very proud of you all for continuing with your learning independently!
Who tried the Joe Wicks PE lesson this morning? Let me know what you thought - I'm exhausted!
When doing 'the mummy' exercise the postman walked past my window......he must have thought I was waving because he waved back. Safe to say I think we are now friends!
Most of you would have heard the news from last night. Please remember to listen carefully to your adults - it is so important you stay safe, and this means staying inside.
Let me know how you are keeping yourselves busy when you aren't completing learning time. Other people might like to magpie your ideas!
Tuesday 24th March
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful learning yesterday - it really made me smile reading your diary entries.
This morning, why not have a go at the Joe Wicks work out for PE?
I'm going to do it at home too..........I'll let you know how long it takes before I need to stop let me know how far you get!
Today I would like you to do the learning time work in your packs. Remember, 20 minutes of each: maths, SPAG and reading. Remember all of our strategies - they will help you get the right answers.
I read lots of your letters to your future selves on the last day. Many of you feel like you have wasted your time because the SATs are not happening now. I want you all to remember that is absolutely not the case, please don't be down heartened - your learning is for life and you are all still getting ready for secondary school. All the work you have done will help you in the next stage of schooling - and I have every faith that you will all carry on doing brilliantly!
Don't forget to complete your AR time and continue with your project on the Ancient Greeks!
I’ve had lots of emails from you saying purple mash isn’t working. Please don’t worry. It’ll be because so many children around the country will be trying to use it.
Just keep trying to go on there throughout the day.
One of you asked about whether to draw the picture straight into the book or on paper. You can either draw it on the plain paper and then cut it out and stick in the book, or you can draw it straight into the book.
Well done for so many of you trying to get your learning done this morning! I cannot wait to to see what you have written!
Monday 23rd March
Good morning everyone!
I hope you had a lovely weekend
Thank you for your emails - they have really made me laugh - and you'll all be pleased to know that I now have some flour, so yes......... I can make pancakes!
Looking at your timetable for today, rather than doing the 20 minutes of maths, SPaG and reading papers, I would like you to get out your work books.
Today is the first day of us learning in a different way. It might feel a little strange, but remember that it's OK to feel like that. We're all learning like this together and it is a new experience for everyone.
In your books, I'd like you to draw a picture of what your new learning space looks like. It might be a picture of you at a desk in your room, at your family dinner table, or even you sitting in the garden with your learning (as it is so lovely and sunny!). I'd then like you to write a diary entry that covers your weekend and the start of today. Remember to use all the features of a diary that we have worked on previously - and to do it in your best hadwriting!
This is you marking history in your own way.
Remember, you can email me the pictures and I'll upload them to our class page and you can all see how each other are learning. I'll put a picture of mine to! I have the house point chart ready to go so when you've emailed the picture remember to let me know which house you are in and I'll add your points.
Let's see which house is winning by the end of the week!
For your online learning, I have also set you a couple of activities on purple mash....... have fun!
Don't forget to share your home learning letter and pack with your adults at home .
I'm going to leave you with a riddle.......you'll get the answer tomorrow:
What question can you never answer yes to?
See you in the morning!
