Good Morning Gold Class

 

I know times are difficult again but we must stay positive and stay safe!

 

You have all worked SO hard so far this year and have been making amazing progress, you need to keep up the hard work at home now too! Please make sure you complete the work to the same standard you would if you were in class with me.

The work will be uploaded onto this page and will stay our page for that week. It will then all be removed at the start of the following week.

 

Please don't forgot to email me over your work every day so I can check it, mark it and reply to you and see how well you are doing!

I am really looking forward to seeing your work each day and responding to it - although you are having to do it from home, I am still excited to see you learn and progress!

Thank you to those who have already sent me in their work - it really does make me smile, feel very happy and proud of you! 

 The email is goldhw@tonacliffe.lancs.sch.uk 

 

Under the 'Classes' heading on our website, you will find a Remote Learning page with lots of useful links and sites to support learning at home.

 

Stay safe, stay positive and keep in touch - I can't wait to see you again soon!

Class Read 

 

You will find links below to videos of myself reading our class read A Journey To The River Sea! Please get comfy, relax and enjoy some story time! laugh

I will aim to upload a new video each day for you to listen to and enjoy so we can keep going with our class read. I think it would be lovely to listen to once you have finished all your work for the day, a little bit of time to unwind.

For your maths today, you need to watch the following video. I found that in school yesterday and I know some at home found this too, there was too much maths to complete in one lesson. For today, watch the video up to TASK ONE and then complete task one as your work for the lesson. 

On Wednesday, you can continue with the video and complete the second task. This will be the same for Thursday and Friday too.

In order to complete the next Science lesson next week, we are wanting to have a go at making blood. If you would like to have a go at home you will need the following:

Important information

 

PE

In Gold Class, we will have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday.

 

These are the days that the children can attend school in PE kits. Please make sure the children have appropriate clothing to be doing PE outdoors as one session a week, at least, will be outside. 

Please still have ALL clothing labelled, especially jackets and coats, so items can easily be identified if lost.

 

Homework and spellings:

Each week, children will be given a piece of mathematics or English homework. This homework includes learning spellings. This will be handed out on a Friday and needs to be brought back into school on a Wednesday.  

 

Learning logs will be given each half term. Please note that you are expected to complete two of these as a minimum but that you can choose to do more if you wish. The final deadline for these to be handed in is the last Wednesday of the half term.

 

Spellings will be sent home every week. They need to be learnt for the spelling tests. It is also important for the children to be learning the definitions of their spellings to support their understanding of reading and comprehension texts.

 

It is important that all children are learning their times tables up to 12 x 12. They need to be able to recall multiplication and division facts. This is very important in years 5 and 6 to support the children with their everyday Maths lessons.

 

Reading

Reading remains a key priority. Please remind your child to bring their homework diary and reading book to school every day. The children will be able to change their reading books every Monday and Friday morning. 

We expect to see reading diaries signed at least four times each week. The children are responsible for making sure their reading records are signed every time they read.

Your child does not have to always read to you. They can read to themselves or others. However, it is important to listen to your child regularly and support their reading and comprehension at home. At the bottom of this page you will find a helpful document to how you can support reading at home. The children are also allowed to read books from home and complete reading quizzes on these too. I am happy for this to happen as long as they are still reading the school books on their level as these levels are given to the children based on an assessment. This then helps them to continue to read books at their level as well as books at home for pleasure.

 

Rising Stars Online Comprehension

An online comprehension will be given out for homework. If your child does not have access to the internet, or if they have difficulties accessing the activity, please let me know.

Details on how to access the comprehension:

Important information

Remember - No jewellery is allowed in school expect for stud earrings and watches. Girls MUST have their long hair tied up.

Please make sure your child has their own water bottle in school which is clearly labelled with their name.

Thank you,

What are we learning about this half term?

 

On this page you can have a look at what we are doing this term, check out important diary dates and find out important information.

This half term we will be learning: 

  • English - We will start with a short unit on non-chronological reports, which the children will complete by writing a report about animals in the Amazon Rainforest. We will then be completing a unit about legends which we will focus on The Legend of Gelert. 
  • Maths - We will be learning about measurement, geometry, statistics, 2D shape, temperature, mean, algebra and order of operations. 
  • Science - We will be looking at the unit of animals including humans. 

  • Geography - We will spend the spring term studying a unit of the Anglo Saxons, Scots and the Vikings.

  • Art - This half term we will be focusing on the unit Dancing People. 

  • RE  - We will be looking at Hinduism and focusing on the question, 'What might Hindu's learn from the stories about the Krishna?'. 

  • Computing - we will be learning about coding. The children will use Scratch to complete this unit, with a focus on the skill of selection. 

  • Online safety - we will be focusing on online reputation, online bullying and online relationships. It would be fantastic if you could discuss the key online safety messages at home as well as discussing with the children what they are learning about in online safety at school.
