Maths

Here are some of the objectives we will cover this half term:

  • partitioning numbers in different ways
  • 2D shapes
  • statistics
  • written methods for addition and subtraction
  • daily times tables practice.

 

 

English

We will be reading a lovely story called ‘The Way Home for Wilf’. Here is some of the learning that we will be doing:

  • using and, but, or and so to link words and clauses
  • responding to and analysing the text
  • learning the story orally
  • using non-fiction texts to find about wolves as well as other animals
  • using our research on a different animal to write our own Way Home for Wilf stories.

 

Science

Our topic this half term is light. We will be

  • recognising that we need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light
  • noticing that light is reflected from surfaces
  • recognising that light from the sun can be dangerous and that there are ways to protect our eyes
  • recognising that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object
  • finding patterns in the way that the size of shadows change

 

Art

We will be looking at the work of painter L.S.Lowry.

 

Pupils new to Green Class

Attached are some documents that are for the children who will be new to Green Class in September.

Please find attached your summer homework challenges and some information about Green Class to read before you return to school in September. 

The children have had many different exciting opportunities in the last year. Here are some photos of trips, visitors, work in the classroom and things the children have made. 

Green Class' chosen charity to raise money for this year is Pendleside Hospice. The class chose this charity as some of the children's families had used the hospice.

 

Our first event of the year was a sponsored exercise Leah from the hospice came in to see us and to present us with a cheque showing the amount that we raised this this half term. We raised a huge £374! Thank you to everybody in Green Class and their families and friends for their support. Leah told us that the money that we raised may be used to pay for counselling for children.

 

We then raffled a large bear, the raffle raised £101.00

 

At Easter the whole school participated in the Bunny Hop to raise money for Pendleside Hospice. We raised an amazing £992.81! 

 

Finally we made angles and picture frames that the children bought, raising another £57.00.

 

Meaning we had a grand total of £1524.81

 

Once again thank you to everyone who has supported us in raising money for Pendleside Hospice. 

 

Welcome to Green Class!

 

Hello Green Class Parents and Carers,

We hope you are all safe and well. Thank you for all your support during these uncertain times.  We update 'Home Learning' every Monday morning with the activities for that week. We check MyMaths, Timestable Rockstars and Purple Mash daily and support individual children where needed.

Home Learning - Week Seven

We hope you enjoyed last weeks home learning, we certainly enjoyed seeing the work you completed. Well done to those of you who did complete the work.

 

Attached are the different documents you will need for your home learning this week. There is a timetable, overview of different activities and a document to help with your French work.

 

Miss Parrington will be checking your maths work, including mymaths and times table rockstars.

Mrs Hutchinson will be checking your English work (there is a sheet attached above for English this week), RE and computing. If you need help with how to email photographs please email Mrs Hutchinson for advice. Please email your English work daily.

Mrs Cartridge will be checking History, Science and Art.

There are thousands of children trying to access the different programs and this slows them down. 

 

The 2dos are set from Monday- Friday, you will not be able to access them after Friday. This allows your teachers time to mark your work and give you feedback.

Easter holidays

As we would normally now be on our Easter holidays we won't be setting any work for the next two weeks. That doesn't mean you can't continue to work on ttrockstars and my maths. If you would like to make us an Easter card on purple mash that would be lovely. 

There is also a Kahoot you can have a go at. 

Kahoot: Easter Symbols and Christian Beliefs 

Type 'kahoot.it' into your search bar and enter pin '0721390'.

Keep safe over the holiday period and look out for the new home learning on Monday 20th April.

Online Safety

Staying safe online is extremely important during this time. Please use the resources I have attached to start positive family conversations around safe and responsible internet use and to agree clear expectations and boundaries. One of the resources also helps you spot the signs that may be  experienced from being online too long and reminds us to have a healthy balance.

For more resources visit https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/blog/keeping-children-happy-and-safe-online-during-covid-19

You can also visit https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk

which has games and videos to watch about staying safe on the internet.

 

 

Money Sense activities

Natwest Bank have an extremely useful website full of activities around understanding the value of money (something we wish all children knew more about :)). I have attached the web link below for some games that the children might enjoy. There is also a parent's zone should you wish to take a look at some activities to do with your children at home to help them better understand the value of money.

https://natwest.mymoneysense.com/parents/5-8s/

https://natwest.mymoneysense.com/students/students-5-8/

 

We hope you are all well and are enjoying some extra time with your children. We understand that the prospect of home learning might be very daunting at this moment whilst you are juggling many roles but please don't let it add any more stress to what is already a difficult time in all our lives. 

 

As I am sure you are aware, children can struggle without structure and routine and may push boundaries while they adjust. Using a timetable to lay out the plans and expectations for the day, including when you expect them to be independent and with some suggestions for what they should be doing, could provide them with the structure they need and are used to. With this in mind we have attached a suggested time for the day. (It is only a suggestion)

 

Please remember learning takes place in many different forms and experiences can be just as powerful as lessons. Bake, play board games, read, build a den, watch a film, garden ... anything to make this challenging time more fun. 

 

Best wishes Mrs Hutchinon, Miss Parrington and Mrs Cartridge.

  • Is the cross a symbol of sadness or joy?
  • Is Good Friday the beginning or the end?
  • Is Easter Sunday the end or the beginning?
