WORKING FROM HOME

INFORMATION BOARD

WELL DONE to all the children who are joining me for ZOOM lessons each day. 

I am doing specific input that will help your child with their English and Maths work and it is really important that your child keep up with this (even if you go to school a few days each week).

PLEASE JOIN US if you haven't done so already.

HAVING A TIMETABLE

Having a regular time to do your work is good.  You need to decide what works best for you as a family, but here is a suggested timetable to help you.

INFORMATION ABOUT WORKING FROM HOME

Here are some bits and pieces of information that might help you as you work from home.

The BBC have produced a SUPPORT section to BITESIZE to offer you additional help and guidance if you are working with your child at home.  The link is:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/support

 

 

ALL ABOUT ZOOM!

  • We have ZOOM APPLE CLASS every day from 11am.
  • On Wednesdays we will be joining Mrs Whitehouse, our music teacher, in school to join in with a series of percussion lessons.  Just bring yourself!

You need to look at the timetable to find out when you should login.  Your login passwords and ID numbers have been sent to your parents via text.

 

 

 

 

TIMES TABLE ROCKSTARS

 

 

 

 

 

BBC BITESIZE

The BBC have launched their new programmes for children working from home.  There is a daily timetable of events you can watch on television and lots of lessons and activities that you can access.

 

 

 

STORYTIME

During my absence in November I started filming a storytime every day. 

I am going to do that again, but thought I would start with GEORGE'S MARVELLOUS MEDICINE by Roald Dahl as we never got to finish it. 

The first few videos are repeats if you watched them before.

OUR SUCCESS CRITERIAS FOR WRITING A RECIPE

Using Ethan's Pumpkin Recipe we made a SUCCESS CRITERIA to use when we write a recipe to make sure we have included all the KEY FEATURES of a recipe.

SUCCESS CRITERIA FOR A RECIPE - GROUP ONE (11am)

- It must have a TITLE which is written in CAPITAL LETTERS and UNDERLINED

- It must have a picture to help.

- It should have a SUBHEADING called INGREDIENTS.

- All the ingredients should be in a LIST with BULLET POINTS.

- It must have a SUBHEADING called METHOD.

- You must number the instructions.

 

SUCCESS CRITERIA FOR A RECIPE - GROUP 2 (11.30am)

- It must have a TITLE which is written in CAPITAL LETTERS and UNDERLINED

- It must have a picture to help.

- It should have a SUBHEADING called INGREDIENTS.

- All the ingredients should be in a LIST with BULLET POINTS.

- It must have a SUBHEADING called METHOD.

- You must number the instructions.

- Your instructions must begin with an IMPERATIVE VERB (or Bossy Verb)

 

We have not included PUNCTUATION or NEAT WRITING on the Success Criteria because you know that is what you have to do without me reminding you.

I have combined the Success Criteria that we made this week.  A copy of this can be found in ATTACHMENTS below.

 

 

 

OUR PANCAKES

Brooke and Sophie have worked together through the powers of the internet to make delicious chocolate chip pancakes.  Brooke said that there were so many she had one for breakfast too!

 

 

These are some Traditional Pancakes that I have made.  I wonder what recipe you are going to design in your plans this week?

 

 

 

 

 

This is a story about Mr Wolf making pancakes.  I thought you might enjoy it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

WORKING FROM HOME FOR WEEK BEGINNING MONDAY 25TH JANUARY

I would just like to tell you how very proud I am of you all as we are working together in a very different way from usual.  You are all doing a brilliant job.

READING AND SPELLING

Check out these websites for plenty to read.

This week we are going to be learning some more words which can be changed using an APOSTROPHE.  

We will also be starting to look at HOMOPHONES (these are words that sound the same, but mean different things and are spelt differently).

 

 

 

 

 

SCIENCE, GEOGRAPHY, HEARTSMART AND WORSHIP

Mrs West has sent us this video to put with our Worship this week from the Wey Assemblies and School Team.  You may recognise lots of people as they come into school to share assemblies with us.

WORKING FROM HOME FOR WEEK BEGINNING MONDAY 18TH JANUARY

I have organised this page differently this week as I felt there was an awful lot of information altogether.  I am hoping that this new system will make it easier for you.  Please e-mail me to let me know if you are having any difficulties.  Everything on this page can be collected from school in a pack if you would prefer.  Please contact the school office.

This is a video I made this morning to show you BRIDGING using partitioning to subtract using tens and units rods.  

 

 

 

Here is a video about this lesson if you would like to see more examples of using partitioning to help subtract.  Sorry about the keyboard - will find another solution for next time!

 

 

Here are a few problems you could practise with today:

17 - 9 =

12 - 5 =

16 - 8 =

14 - 7 =

This is the video from yesterday showing how to use PARTITIONING and a number line to help you find a quick way to subtract numbers.

 

 

 

 

The Success Criteria for a recipe we made together is in a separate box which you can find above.
