Good morning Class 9.
I hope you are enjoying the sunshine. I've really missed you all this week so have been looking for a way to stay in contact. Quite a few of you have completed Purple Mash tasks but many of the tasks don't allow Miss Baliol-Key or I to give feedback. With the help of Ms Crowson, I have discovered 2email on Purple Mash which allows me to email you feedback and generally keep in contact. I have sent you all an email so if you can, log on to Purple Mash, search for 2email and reply!
Take care and keep smiling,
Mrs A :)
Hi all - day 2 of the new normal! I have added a factors 2Do to Purple Mash, I know the website has been in high demand and so hasn't always worked but it is there for whenever you are able to do it. I'll add more as the week goes on and will also point you in the direction of anything else I see that might be interesting. https://www.facebook.com/events/682955445790269/ this looks like it should be good - fits perfectly with our WW2 topic so the children should be able to get involved! Also get on YouTube at 9am on weekdays for PE with Joe Wicks; Alexander and I have done it the last two mornings with varying levels of success..........!
I have recently signed up for Zoom video conferencing (like the rest of the world!) and am happy to host a get together if the children would like that? If your kids would be interested, email me at email@example.com and I'll send an invite - it would be great for them to all get together even if it's only once or twice a week to keep our class 9 team in contact.
Anything else you need help with then just email - I'm checking emails every day so will get back to you within 24 hours.
In the event of children staying at home during normal school time we are 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:
You will need to create an account if you don't already have one and use the offer code CVDTWINKLHELPS to access the free resources.
White Rose maths, the learning scheme that we follow, are also making a daily maths lesson available for free that would really help children to consolidate their learning. Go to whiterosemaths.com/homelearning to find the videos for year 5.
In addition to this the following are also suggested:
1. 'What have we learnt from World War II?'
This is our main question for our topic work this term and the children can do project based work relating to the question.
They can be as creative as they like: make models, do artwork, write a blog using Purple Mash, write a story, make a fact book, present a news report in the old Pathe style, try cooking using rationing etc.
They could take pictures of their work and send them to the school email address for us to see. This is intended as a very open task for children to enjoy and be inspired by.
2. Read for pleasure. This means there is no expectation to write comprehension questions and answers but children may wish to let us know what they are reading - this can be reported on their Purple Mash Blog. We had 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.
3. For daily maths practice:
Any of the Y5 units for maths and English on Purple Mash. At this stage, they are all relevant.
4. Y5/6 spellings - there is a document attached below, it would be great to practise these spellings with your child.
5. Artwork - get outside practising those sketching skills, now that you've all done a Spitfire the world is your oyster!
We will also set some Purple Mash 2Dos that can be done at any time up until 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 we will send paper copies home where possible.
Stay safe, keep washing those hands!
Mrs Anderson & Miss Baliol-Key
Welcome to class 9!
Mrs Anderson will be teaching the children Monday to Wednesday, and Miss Baliol-Key will be doing Thursday and Friday.
PE is on Tuesday and Thursday so please have kits in school for then - Tuesday is swimming so please make sure you have hats and towels.
Homework will be set on a Friday and should be in for the following Thursday. We have a change to homework this year in that it will all be set and completed online using the Purple Mash website. The benefit of online homework is that the children can access it wherever they have wifi and it reduces paper waste hugely.
Our topic for this term is World War II; we will have a WWII experience in school before half term and will look at what we have learned from the conflict. We will also be attempting to make an Anderson shelter on the field - wish us luck! We also have our trip to PGL on 12-14th February and will give you more details about this nearer the time.
As always, please do come and see us if there's anything you need to discuss
Mrs Anderson & Miss Baliol-Key
