It has certainly been a busy week. I would like to start by thanking parents for their continued support in this difficult and unprecedented set of circumstances. Pupils have each been given a home learning pack. This contains two weeks worth of numeracy, literacy and health and wellbeing tasks in the grid format that pupils are familiar with, pupil’s logins for GLOW and Sumdog, a code to allow pupils to upload their work to seesaw from home and additional login information for parents that are still struggling to access seesaw from home. Any additional tasks or information to do with the home learning activities will be communicated through seesaw or the school app.
In Literacy this week we have been looking at writing spring poems. Pupils had to think about using literacy techniques to enhance their description and think about what things reminded them of Spring. Pupils were also creating a film review for a short animation. This required pupils to use the skills we have been working on in report writing such as writing in third person, subheadings and using accurate formal language.
In numeracy and mathematics we started to look at how you calculate the area and perimeter of a shape. Pupils identified real world situations where those skills would be useful and practiced finding the area and perimeter of shapes in a variety of contexts.
In our topic work we have started to look back over everything we have learned this term. The pupils created jigsaw pieces and short descriptions of things that they had learned this term and discussed what they would still like to know more about.
In ICTand in preparation for the learning that will taking place at home pupils were given the opportunity to practice logging into GLOW and shown how to access Office 365 so that they can use word, power point and SWAY to complete home learning tasks if there is a computer available.
I wish everyone all the best in these difficult times and I hope everyone stays safe, happy and healthy.
Best wishes to you all.
