Welcome to The Hurricane Class!
We have had a great start to 2020, the children have settled well into the new class routine with Mrs Conner now on maternity leave. Mrs Hunter teaches all day on a Monday and Tuesday afternoons with myself teaching the rest of the week. We have a wonderful team working in the class each morning, Mrs Sutherland (Monday’s and Tuesdays), Mrs Mulcahy (Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays) and Mrs Webb who is with us every morning.
The Buccaneer Year 1 children stay with us for Phonics, English and Maths each morning and for PE, Music, RE, PSHE and Computing in the afternoons. They join the Buccaneer class on Wednesday and Friday afternoons for Science and History.
If you have any questions or concerns please do come and see me, if I’m not available please contact the school office to arrange a time. Thank you for your support so far whilst both classes have been adjusting to the change.
Helpful advice for using Reading Eggs
I received this helpful user guide for parents today from Reading Eggs so thought I would share it with you.
More home learning pics!
Thank you so much for continuing to share your pictures, I think it is really nice for us all to see what everyone is up. Keeping in contact when we can't be together.
There has been some wonderful art work to help cheer people up, amazing writing and some interesting science work, watching seeds grow.
Well done everyone you are doing great!
I've had some queries about the changing of reading books, obviously it is not possible for us to change books from school at the moment but Mrs Winter has told me about a website she is using for her class https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/
You will need to create an account which is free, then you will have access to hundreds of book banded reading books so that your child can continue to read as usual. If you have any questions about which books you think your child should be reading please do ask.
There are also the hundreds of books available on Reading Eggs so there should be plenty to keep your children reading for quite a while!
Home Learning Week 1
Thank you so much for sending in your photos of all the things you have been getting up to, it's been so lovely to receive your emails.
Here are some of the photos I have received, if you have sent me some pictures and you are happy for me to put them on the website, please let me know.
'App' work set for this week
Hello all! A massive well done to all of you who have completed or at least had a go at the work set on the apps last week. MyMaths allows me to leave feedback which I thought was lovely, I can't on the other apps but I do check daily to see how you are all doing!
I know lots of you have been really busy getting outdoors and doing lots of other activities but these apps are great for practising all those skills you have learned at school, so if you can, please do have a go at them.
Year 1's: Reading Eggs - storyland lesson, Mathseeds, MyMaths
Year 2's: Reading Eggspress - comprehension lesson, Mathletics, MyMaths, Times Table Rockstars
If you have any problems logging into any of these apps please do let me know and I will try and help you out.
