Home Learning wb: 06.04.20

Dear Parents

It is officially the Easter Holiday, however, having just got into the routine of Home Learning and with little chance of days out or socialising, I thought I would continue to provide planning and activities. It does not look like we shall be returning to school just yet and I believe it would be really hard for the children to temporarily 'pause' in their Home Learning then expect them to start again in two weeks time. I also hope this helps provide you with some structure and routine as well as helping to keep them occupied. 

As it is 'the holidays' the assignments I have set on the online learning platforms (Reading Eggs/Maths Seeds and My Maths) have a two week deadline to give you time to work at your own pace. If you have any difficulties accessing them please contact me via the email provided. 

I hope you are finding the activity suggestions useful and enjoyable and are having fun with your children whilst helping them to continue to learn. 

Best wishes from Mrs Winter

Mrs Winter's week 2

Hello Buccaneers

I thought I would update you on what I have been doing this week. I love to hear your news so keep me posted with your email updates and photos. It is nice for your friends to see what you have been doing too. 

My family are very lucky where we live, out of our back gate we have access to a field with a river running along the bottom. A pair of swans have made their nest just across the river so I am looking forward to seeing their babies hatch and hope to share photos with you later. I have been able to exercise by taking walks with Benny the dog and have seen lots of spring flowers. Benny also enjoys swimming in the river, but doesn't understand social distancing rules when he meets his doggy friends. 

Across the track outside our house is our allotment, so I am able to get outside to do some gardening. I have tidied my flower bed (see during and after pictures) and today planted spinach, chard and lettuce seeds. 

We have been doing lots of home cooking. My son Edan, who lives at home with us, made pasta and we made a lasagne together. I also made a white chocolate and raspberry cake and some chocolate brownies. I love to hear about what you have been cooking too. 

We have been doing some home learning as well. Edan's hair was getting in his eyes so with the help of some on line videos I learned how to cut his hair. He has learned how to clean the oven, a useful skill for life! 

We are trying to use this opportunity to spend quality time together but I am missing my other two boys, though we can have video chats. I hope you are all managing to still talk with your friends and family too.  

Best wishes to you all

Mrs W.

Here are some more of the fantastic and fun activities you have been up to this week. I love that Sophie and Eddie have made their own forest school area in their garden. I also love Harper's Home Learning area with all her resources and timetable displayed. Dexter has been busy outside digging, creating a chalk animal zoo and a worm farm.  

Congratulations to our star on-line learners this week, George for completing 6 assignments on Maths Seeds and 2 on Reading Eggs, Hashir for completing 5 on Maths Seeds and 2 on Reading Eggs, Miraya and Edison for completing all your Maths Seeds assignments, Maddie and Lily B for completing all your Reading Eggs assignments; also Arthur, Frankie, Maggie and Hashir for completing all you assignments on My Maths. 

If you are unsure of your child's My Maths login please email and I will forward to you. 

Remember, whilst I can see the work you have been competing on our on-line learning platforms, it is important to have a balance between on screen learning and other activities. Hopefully children are still using their packs to complete written tasks plus following the weekly activities set, as well as having some fun, cooking, exercising and getting outside safely.

Thank you for all the lovely photos you have been sending me of the amazing learning and activities you have been doing this week. It is so nice to see what you are all up to and for your friends to be able to see you too. I am impressed by how creative some of you are being too. 

If you have not sent me any pictures this week it is not too late. I love hearing from you and receiving your emails. I think it is really important that the children can see how their friends are learning at home too. 

Enjoy the sunshine this weekend and I will be text to let you know when I have posted new learning assignments. 

Best wishes
