Good morning class 5 :)
I hope everyone had a great day yesterday!

 

I managed to have a quick chat with Victoria, Skye and Isabelle at school which was lovely! 

 

My year 1 bubble had a go at making a fun witches potion in science yesterday. We added half a cup of white vinegar, a big squeeze of washing up liquid, a few drops of food colouring and some glitter then mixed it with a spoon. Then to finish, we added a spoonful of bicarbonate of soda and watched what happened!! If you have the items, have a go! It's a bit smelly (vinegar) but fun :D

 

Today you will be learning about the four types of sentence in English, finding a quarter in maths and learning numbers and songs in Spanish! :D


Your star challenge is about making vibrations using a fork and some string! 

 

Have a lovely day!

05.06.2020

Good morning class 5!


Can you believe it's Friday again!? 


I just don't know where the weeks go. I have nearly completed my first week back in school and I am feeling tired!

 

In today's learning you will be forming letters accurately and using the suffix 'ly' in english, maths is the challenge of the week and your other subject is design and technology where you are looking at packaging!

 

Your star challenge involves creating some natural art, but by the looks of the weather, this might be one to save for when the rain has stopped!! 

 

I hope everyone has a fantastic day!

Good morning class 5!

Today you will be using noun phrases and exclamation marks in your writing, looking at odd and even numbers in maths and learning to count and say French words for food and drink in French! That sounds fun :D

 

Your star challenge involves investigating which container is best to keep a cold drink cold! 

 

Have a lovely day everyone,
Miss Richardson :)

Good morning class 5!
It looks like a bit of a rainy day today, at least the plants will be happy after all this dry weather.

Today you will be learning about suffixes, grouping and habitats but I know Mrs White has posted a fun bubble experiment for science if you'd prefer that! Your star challenge is to collect up some teddy bears and compare them then think about what a teddy would look like if you invented one!

Have a lovely day,

Class 4 & 5 Year 2 Home Learning Timetable 1st June-5th June

23.05.2020

Good morning class 5!

I just wanted to mention that there is a 'to do' on purple mash for this week. It is just a spelling quiz to consolidate the learning you have done for this half term. 
Below I have attached the other resources just incase anyone wants to do them over half term. Don't feel like you have to though as I'm sure you are all looking forward to a break from home schooling!! 

Have a great bank holiday weekend and enjoy half term :)
Miss Richardson

22.05.2020

Good morning class 5! 
Happy Friday :)

Today is the last day of learning for a week as next week is half term!

From June 1st I will be in school every day teaching a group of year 1 children (if the government don't change their minds) but I will still be keeping on top of your home learning timetable and resources. I will still be checking the google classroom daily to see the work you submit but it might be a little later than the current time 3:30-4:30. 

Today you have a reading lesson on a book called Attack of the demon dinner ladies - this sounds exciting!! Your maths lesson is the challenge of the week and your other subject is music where you have been set the task of making music from jam jars! 
Your star challenge links to yesterday's computing lesson about coding. There is a free app called Lightbot where you can code your way through the puzzles. I hope it works! 

Have a lovely day :D
Miss Richardson 

21.05.2020

Good morning class 5!
I hope everyone got to enjoy some of the lovely sunshine yesterday :)

 

Today you have got english where you are writing the days of the week and using verbs to write a diary, in maths you are working on your 5 times table and your other subject today is computing where you are learning how programmes and games work! 

 

Your star challenge today is to see what shadows your toys make! If you can you could draw around them in chalk to see if they look the same as your toy. 

 

Have a lovely day :D
As always, if you have any questions please let me know.

 

Miss Richardson 

20.05.2020

 

Good morning class 5!
It looks like it is going to be a beautiful warm day today. 

On the timetable for you today you will find in english you are forming one-armed robot letters and using them when writing labels and descriptive sentences. In maths you are learning about the 2 times table by counting in twos and looking at arrays and number patterns. Your other subject is science where you are looking at the basic forces of push, pull and twist.

Your star challenge today is:
What’s your favourite animal? What does it eat? Is it a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore? What other animals fit into that group? 
There is also a bitesize video I added on to the timetable for this :)

I hope everyone has a lovely day and has the chance to go out and play in the lovely weather. 
Stay safe and remember to wear your suncream! 

Miss Richardson

19.05.2020

Good morning class 5!

I had a good day at school yesterday, the children completed their work, played on the balance bikes and we even saw Super Mario and a group of his friends who were walking round the village collecting food for the food bank! 

On the timetable for today (and it is correct this time!!) you are using coordinating conjunctions to join sentences in english, describing arrays in maths and learning about Oceania in geography. 

Your star challenge for today is to make a food diary of everything you eat today and look at the types of food you eat and think about how you could group them. If you have a pet, you can compare their diet to yours!

I hope everyone has a great day,

Miss Richardson

18.05.2020

Good morning class 5!

I will be in school today so I will be looking at any work submitted a little later on :)

 

On the timetable for you, you will find English where you are applying phonic skills to develop vocabulary about a new book. In maths you are how to write multiplication sentences using the multiplication (x) symbol and how it relates to repeated addition. Your other subject today is history and you are leaning about Rosa Parks - a very interesting topic! 

 

Your star challenge today is to make a fruit boat out of the skin from something like an orange, melon or lemon to see if it floats! 

 

I hope everyone has a lovely day :)

Good morning Class 5,

Another new week has begun! 
I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and is staying happy, healthy and safe. 
I have uploaded all you should need for this week's home learning. Hopefully I haven't forgotten anything! 

As always, any questions please contact me :)
I look forward to seeing what you get up to this week!

Miss Richardson

Good morning Class 5!
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend :)

Please find attached below this week's timetable along with the spelling and white rose resources. 
On Google Classroom, I am also attaching the spelling resources to the spelling assignment folder and the white rose maths resources are attached to the maths assignment folder.
As mentioned on the timetable, white rose and BBC bitesize are now working in line with each other so the learning topics will be the same, unlike the past couple of weeks where they have been different. 

If you have any questions, let me know.

Please remember, there is no expectation for everyone to complete every piece of work set. We understand some parents are working long hours and are finding it a challenge to balance home learning as well. Please just do what you feel you can manage. The main thing is that everyone stays happy, safe and healthy :) 

Miss Richardson

 

This is a timetable that you and your parents will hopefully find useful when carrying out your learning at home. It would be great if you could attach any work you have done on to the Google Classroom folders or email them to school email if you can’t access google classroom. We will be on Google Classroom from 3.30 – 4.30 on Monday to Friday to look at what exciting things you have been up too and answer any questions you may have. 

 

From this week onwards, the White Rose and BBC lessons run in line with each other. Every day there will be learning video on the White Rose website and link to that day’s BBC Bitesize page for more information and lesson content in relation to that day’s lesson video. The White Rose resources are also attached to maths the assignment folder and school web page.

Class 5 Home Learning Timetable 4th May-8th May

01.05.2020

 

Good morning class 5!
I can't believe it is Friday again, the weeks are flying by for me!

I have really enjoyed hearing about what everyone has been up to this week :)

Your lessons for today include a reading lesson on Funny Bones in english (I loved this book when I was younger), problem solving challenges in maths and learning about rhythm by using your body and clapping in music. Today's star challenge is to join Paxi on his adventures around space and discover the solar system. 

I realise the link on the timetable for the star challenge doesn't work so I have attached another link below that hopefully will!

The new timetable and related resources will be posted on Sunday. 
Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Stay safe :)
Miss Richardson

30.04.2020

 

Good morning class 5!

The sun is currently shining where I live, I am hoping it lasts a little while! 

Another fun filled day of activities ahead for you all including creating sentences with description in english, problem solving in maths and learning about the story of Passover in RE. Today's star challenge is to find things around your house that float and sink! 

I have really enjoyed looking at all of the work that is being handed in to me. Remember, the most important thing is that everyone stays happy and healthy during this time :)

Apologies to anyone finding Google Classroom confusing at times, I am still trying to work it out!
I am currently trying to figure out whether I have to 'return' your work to you in order to enable you to add more work to the same assignment folder. 

As always, if you have any questions please get in touch.

Have a great day,
Miss Richardson

 

29.04.2020

Good morning class 5!

It looks like you're in for another day of fun lessons including using and/or/but/because/if in english, comparing and ordering amounts and using the four operations with length in maths and looking at different types of materials in science. 

For your star challenge you are thinking of some silly products that would never work like a chocolate teapot! I can't wait to hear about some of the funny things you all come up with. 

I hope everyone has a lovely day :)

Miss Richardson

28.04.2020

Good morning class 5!
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy :)

It is raining where I am today which is a shame but at least the plants will be happy to have a drink! Hopefully the sunshine comes out for us again soon.

Today there are more fun lessons for you to take part in including using capital letters, full stops and joining words in english, making amounts and ordering lengths in maths and looking at France in geography. The star challenge is to sit outside and try to listen for sounds and birds, however if it is raining this might be an activity to do later on in the week when the weather is a little brighter. 

I hope you all have an enjoyable day :)

Miss Richardson

27.04.2020

Good afternoon Class 5!
I have had a very enjoyable day at school today. 
We started with some Joe Wicks, followed by completing our maths, english and phonics work. This afternoon we played outside too. Some of us were enjoying drawing on the playground with chalks whilst others played games. We finished off the day watching some of 101 Dalmatians. 

I have loved looking at all the work that has already been completed! Well done to you all :) 

Miss Richardson 

27.04.2020

Good morning Class 5!

The lessons today look fun! You will be using alliteration in your writing, working with money/lengths in maths and finding out about Neil Armstrong! In the Star Challenge you are looking outside to see if you notice any changes to trees and plants to work out if spring has sprung yet.

As always, if you have any questions please contact me :)

I am in school today so I will be on the Google Classroom a little bit later than the normal time to answer any questions and have a look at any work that is completed.

Have a fab day!
Miss Richardson

26.04.2020

 

Good morning Class 5!
I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. 

I have attached the new timetable for this week so children and parents can see what is coming up and plan for the week ahead. 

I have also attached a letter for parents which explains about new daily phonics lessons which are starting from Monday 27th April. This is just something we thought might be helpful if you want to try them. They may just be a recap for some children. 

I set up the new subject folders last week so if you can submit any work completed in to those that would be great! The plan is to have a look at all of the work and return the work back to you every Sunday so you can see any comments made on it. 

Just to echo what Miss Newcombe said on Friday, I can't wait to everyone and get to know you all! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. 

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)
Keep safe.

Hey my little dinosaurs  

I just wanted to write this letter to you all to tell you how much I have appreciated being your teacher this year. We have had so much fun together from creating our dinosaur characters, going on adventures around the world, taking part in the Christmas production to you all keeping a check on my daily intake of sweets and chocolate! 

 

You have all been an inspiration to myself and your class friends and I'm really proud of how you have all pulled together as a family of little dinosaurs always making sure that everyone is reaching their full potential. 

 

It has been lovely being able to speak to you all over the last few days and hearing what fab things you have been up to. Unfortunately not everyone was able to answer the phone and I'm sorry I couldn't speak to you but Miss Richardson will be trying again as soon as she can.  

From Monday I am handing you all over to Miss Richardson who is extremely excited to get to know you all. She is kindly taking my place so I can concentrate on preparing and spending time with my new little munchkin who I can't wait to bring in and meet you all. 

 

I am already missing you lots as it feels like it has been forever but one thing is for sure we will all see each other again soon. Keep up all your hard work I will try to check in from time to time to see what wonderful things you have been doing. 

 

Take care and keep safe.

 

Love Miss Newcombe :

Good morning class 5!

Miss Newcombe and I have decided to take what we thought was a good idea from some of the other teachers in school and make a timetable for the whole week, including the BBC tasks and the extra activities. We thought this would be helpful so that parents and children can see what is coming up for the week to enable you to plan ahead. 

Please see the information on the timetable below :) I have also attached the timetable as a word document if you would prefer to look at it that way!

Good morning class 5!

I hope you have all enjoyed your Easter break.

I have been speaking to Miss Newcombe and we have come up with a plan going forward. 
We have decided that we will post the BBC Bitesize weekly timetable for year 2 on a Sunday night so you can see what lessons are coming up for that week. Every morning we will post the White Rose maths lesson for the day as this is what we use for our maths planning and lessons in school. An extra (fun) activity will be also available for you to have a go at as well. These will posted by 10am every day and we will be available to contact at 4pm each day to follow up on learning or to answer any questions that you may have about the tasks set. 


Remember to share all your fantastic activities with us on the Google Classroom or send to the school email address as we love to see what you have been up to. 

If you have any questions at all, please let us know.

Keep safe :)

Miss Newcombe and Miss Richardson

Hey Class 5 

 

I hope you all managed to to have a relaxing tome at home ver the Easter holidays and have made many memories with those around you.

 

I just wanted to check in with you all and remind you of some of the information given to you over the last few days regarding what work you can do to keep yourself busy over the next week.

 

The BBC Bitesize have come up with some brilliant lessons which are not only easy to follow but also super fun. I will attach a copy of the timetable for this weeks learning so you can see whats coming up. These resources are available online or through pressing the red button on your remote control for the TV. 

 

I would also like to remind you of the reading resources that Mrs Jones shared with you all over 'Marvellous Me' last week.

Remember to keep using your purple mash account and practice those skills that you have been learning at school. I will organise setting some more to dos for you over the next few days and will still be setting some fun other activities which are not from BBC to keep you busy. 

 

Don't forget if you have anything that you would like to share with myself or Miss Richardson you can always send it on the google classroom or to the school email and it will be passed onto us. If you ever have any questions you know where we are. 

 

Keep looking after each other and staying stay! Talk to you soon : )

Morning Dinosaurs

 

I can't believe that not only is it Friday again already but it is also the end of the spring term! I am still can't believe that we didn't get to have our little party yesterday for my last day with you but hopefully we will all be able to see each other again soon and do the partying then. 

 

I have found a brilliant time capsule activity that I thought you would enjoy completing over the holidays. You are currently living through something which will go down in history so what better way to remember your thoughts and feelings than writing it all down and hiding it in a special place. I hope you enjoy the different activities that are in the capsule and remember to take your time so when we look at this in years to come you can amaze yourself at how brilliant you were at only 7 years old. 

 

Most importantly over the Easter holidays I would like you to concentrate on having some fun and enjoy spending some time with your family. Look after yourselves and remember to keep safe! 

 

Love from Miss Newcombe : ) 

Just seen this amazing opportunity!!!

Morning Class 5 

 

Can you believe you are half way through your second week already! I hope you have managed to not drive your parents too crazy just yet! Good news for them and you  is that it's almost the Easter holidays! 

 

Yesterday I spent some of the day trying to get Baby's nursery ready as he is due in just over 5 weeks which is crazy! While fixing walls (well Thomas fixing walls) and ordering lots of accessories it got me to thinking just how exciting I could actually make his bedroom. I wonder if you had a magic wand what would you change about your bedroom to make it into a dream bedroom? Would you have a slide or swings coming off your bed? Secret tunnels leading to your tree top den outside? It would be lovely to see what some of your dream bedrooms look like especially at the moment seen as we are all having to spend so much inside at the moment. 

 

Before we broke up from school we had started to look at different traditional foods from around the world. If you were to look at the different types of foods you have in your cupboards would you know where they have come from? For example from the delicious fruits you may have to the naughty foods like yummy chocolate (which you all know i love so much haha).  There are many ways you can record your findings. You can either write a list with or without pictures of the foods or using a copy of the world map or the map of the UK you could label where each food comes from and add some pictures too if you would like.  

 

To keep your Math brains working I have found a great resource link which works with the same math scheme we use at school. This site has activities and videos on how to complete the math that we would have been learning this term at school. Also there are some good games on 'ICTgames' website including the car shop game we did in the classroom.

One last thing before I go today I also found a lovely story for your grown ups to share with you if you're feeling anxious about the Coronavirus. It's a story written by a nurse working on an intensive care unit to help children who are worrying about coronavirus. I will attach the story to the class page : ) 

 

For anyone who hasn't been able to see Mrs White's science letter I have attached a copy to the web page : ) 

 

Have a lovely Wednesday guys! I look forward to seeing some more exciting things you have been doing. 

 

Love Miss Newcombe x  

Mrs White weekly science letter

Right my little dinosaurs are you ready for a super challenge? 

 

My friend Kirsty is a 'Cyber Protect and Prevent Officer' for the police force and she needs our help!

 

I told her how good we are when it comes to online safety and that's when she told me about her problem. She needs to come up with some ideas on how would be the best way to teach others including your friends, parents, guardians or carers about how to keep yourself safe online. This could be through posters, leaflets, power points, stories or any other ideas you can come up with.

 

Kirsty very kindly has shared one of her power points with you to help give some ideas. I will attach this to the class page for you to see. If you make sure that you put it into slide show then you can select the answers you think are correct when going through the slides. 

 

Should you wish to accept this challenge please feel free to send me your finished ideas to either the google classroom or the school email address. 

 

I look forward to seeing what great things you can come up with i know Kirsty will be just as excited!!! Good Luck!!!

Online Safety presentation.

Morning my little dinosaurs 

 

Hope you’re all looking forward to be starting a new week! I am just waiting for a exciting email to arrive then I have got a really fun challenge for you all to do! In the mean time I have found these lovely stay home pics you could print out and colour. I know how much you all love your colouring!

Talk soon

 

Love Miss Newcombe : )!

Hey my little munchkins 

 

I hope you are all as excited as me that it is finally Friday!!!
 

Can you believe that you have all made it through the first week of being at home? Definitely need to give yourselves and the grown ups who have been with you a pat on the back! 


I have set up a google classroom account which is very new to me and I am going to try my hardest to get my head around it. You know what I’m like when it comes to technology! Hopefully this should be a way for you to communicate with me and let me know some of the fun things you have been doing this past week. All you need to do is check with a grown up that they have a gmail account then head to google and search for google classroom then select join a class.

 

You will need the code: w3b26o7 

 

I hope you manage to get logged on as it would be lovely to hear from you all!!! 
 

Miss Newcombe 

 

Morning my little dinosaurs!

 

I hope you are able to make the most of the sunshine. 
 

This has been a very strange week for me not being able to see all of your happy smiling faces! Thankfully I remembered about the hot cross bun photos which helped to put a smile on my face. I will pop these pics on the website for you to enjoy!!! I think it is safe to say that Pebbles (the cat) is definitely getting fed up with me invading his space everyday. I will put up a photo for you too see just what the poor munchkin is having to put up with! Bump is being just as cheeky as ever and getting himself into all those awkward positions that make me uncomfortable. He does seem to be getting hiccups all the time which does make me giggle! 
 

I have been thinking of some activities for you to do while at home and will set you a variety of things to to do on purple mash. Please don’t worry if you can’t access it as I know some of you are having trouble due to so many people trying to use it all at once. I’m sure your parents have seen that you can join in with an online PE class with Joe Wickes every morning on YouTube at 9am. Also Oti Mabuse from Strickly Come Dancing is doing a dance class from her front room for you to get involved in. I know how so many of you enjoy your dancing! You can find these one her Facebook, instagram and YouTube accounts every day at 11.30.  
 

I will be in touch again with some more ideas soon! In the mean time keep looking after yourself and the people around you! Hopefully see you all soon!!!! 
 

Miss Newcombe : ) 

Pebbles new friend!!!!

Pebbles new friend!!!!  1

Pebbles wasn’t too happy with his new friend coming into his house!!! 
 

You can have animals pop in to see you too! All you have to do it get your grown up to type in an animal name into google and then scroll down until you see an option to view in 3D. Once you select this you can see the animal in your front room!!! Which animals will you choose to pop round for a visit? 
 

You could use all of your story writing skills that you have developed over the last term to write an adventure story about what happened the day the animals came into your home!!! 
 

Good luck!!! I look forward to reading these stories when you come back to school as I know from your last ones they will definitely be entertaining!!! 
 

Miss Newcombe : )!

In the event of children staying at home during normal school time I am offering the following advice and guidance to help them to keep working.

 

Please find below a link to Twinkl website as they are offering free activities for parents to access at home: 

 

twinkl.co.uk/offer

 

Once logged on, you should see a link for home education resources that are year group specific.  

 

Classroom secrets kids  has some lovely learning activities and you can create a free account with individual 'seats' for each child.

 

 

In addition to this the following are also suggested:

 

1. Read for pleasure. This means there is no expectation to write comprehension questions and answers but children may wish to let me know what they are reading. Again, this can be reported on their Purple Mash Blog.  We have experienced great fun on World Book Day recently and the children can revisit any activities they enjoyed, be that art work, rewriting extracts as play scripts and acting scenes out, reading using expression etc.

 

2. For daily maths practise:

      www.myminimaths.co.uk 

       www.mathsisfun.co.uk

Any of the Y2 units for maths and English on Purple Mash. At this stage, they are all relevant.

 

3. Artwork - What a great opportunity to get out in the garden and practise those sketching skills. 

 

I shall also set some Purple Mash 2Dos that can be done at any time up the end of the Easter holidays - these will be available from tomorrow and will be updated regularly.

 

If you are unable to access these online activities, please ring or email and I will send some paper copies home.

Hello and welcome to Class 5 also known as the Dazzling Dinosaurs!!!

 

In order to make sure all of our Dinosaurs are on top form there are a few things that we need to remember to do each week.

 

Keeping fit and healthy is super important for when we go on our mini adventures around the mountains and caves so we need to make sure that we remember to bring our PE kits to school for PE lessons. If you are unsure on what items your child needs please don't hesitate to ask.

 

You can help your Dinosaurs at home by ensuring they complete their weekly homework challenge. All homework will be explained to your child prior to going home and will always be something that they have previously done in class. Homework is to be returned to school every Thursday ready for the next challenge to be given out on the Friday. Children can return it as soon as it is done, but we do ask that it is in by the Thursday of the following week, so that we have a chance to mark it!

 

Spellings! Please note that your child's spelling homework relates to specific National Curriculum statutory requirements, and for your information we are now copying the statement from this document onto the top of the spelling list, so that you are aware of what your children are learning! We hope you find it as interesting as the children and I do!

 

Reading: In Class 5 we invite the children to take 2 reading books home at a time. Each day we offer the children the opportunity to change their books, provided that both have been read with an adult. We do ask that you sign and date your child's reading record so that we know where they are up to, and we welcome your comments about how your child has done! We award house points for those readers who achieve at least 3 x signed homework reading sessions in a week, and more than that is more house points! If your child reads other reading materials other than there school books please feel free to also write these in their diaries.

 

We have such an exciting timetable that we try to stick to as much as we can, however sometimes our adventures may end up taking longer than planned. Let’s face it you just never know when a T-Rex encounter may take us by surprise or we are lucky enough to enjoy a last minute adventure in the skies with the Pterodactyls! Baring this in mind we do sometimes have to change our timetable at a moment’s notice.

 

If you need anything or have any questions please remember that I am only a phone call away. I'm looking forward to finding out what adventures our Dazzling Dinosaurs will discover this year.

 

Miss Newcombe
