Welcome to Turquoise Class

Story time smiley

Sit back and relax as we read to you, just like we would if we were all together in class.

We really miss our story time, but hope that you can still enjoy listening to us at home.

Given that Turquoise class and Gold class are reading the same novel, the following videos will be a mixture of Mrs Devine, Miss Griffiths and Miss Noble reading to you. Enjoy smiley

Journey to River Sea

The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse

Remote learning

 

First of all, we would like to say a huge well done for those of you learning at home and emailing your work in regularly for us to see. We are so proud of each and every one of you and know your parents will be too. Whilst it isn't easy, you are rising to the challenge and each piece of work that we receive makes us smile more than you will ever know! We are really missing you all and can't wait until we are able to be back together in class again. In the meantime, keep working hard - the difference it will make to your return to school and your whole future is beyond measure!

 

If you are unable to come into school, work will continue to be set on this webpage. There are online learning websites also listed on the remote learning page which may be of use to you, and of course lessons are available on CBBC throughout the school day too.

When you complete your work, email it in to turquoisehw@tonacliffe.lancs.sch.uk so that we can mark it as we would if you were in class. You can do this after every piece of work or at the end of the day, whichever is most manageable for you and your parents and carers. We will endeavour to reply to your emails on the same day but if you have not received a reply by 5pm, it will arrive the next working day. We apologise for this but as some of you will know from your own experiences of home learning whilst parents are trying to work from home too, there is only so much time in the day!

 

Remember to access TT Rockstars each day as well as completing a reading quiz when you finish a book. Your username and password are the same ones we use in school and are written in your reading diaries! 

 

Our word count is currently 3165203 -  well done to everyone who has contributed to that however we have noticed that the majority of children learning at home are not completing reading quizzes. Ensure you are completing the quix or expect an email/phonecall home to ask why! 

 

Mrs Clutterbuck very kindly passed on the following website which we thought many of you might enjoy: https://www.rspb.org.uk/

 

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

NOTE : Please scroll down to find the date in order to access your learning each day. Video inputs will be used wherever appropriate and these will be filmed both within class and from at home. 

If you have any problems accessing any of the materials, please let us know as soon as possible!

Thank you! 

 

​​​​​​Online thesaurus

 

Mrs Sutcliffe has very kindly made a video for us all to use about how to use an online thesaurus as we know not everyone has a thesaurus at home. You know how much we love you to use ambitious vocabulary choices so this should be really helpful for you when doing your English work.

Monday 11th January 2021

We are hoping that after today, a recorded guided reading session will be available for children to join in with at home. Each day, we hope to a different guided reading session on the webpage so that once per week, your child can join in with their group at home. As we have requested on a couple of occasions last week, please bear with us as sometimes, we start with the best of intentions and either something comes up to prevent this or the technology proves problematic. We are doing all we can to ensure that your child at home receives the same standard of teaching as if they were in school with the technology available to us and obviously at very short notice from last Monday night!

Golden Time

Take a rest and enjoy some down time! Play outside, read, watch a film, play a board game....

You may still want to download the mindful rainforest colouring sheets that we put on here last Friday. 

Relax and have a good weekend!

PE

 

As you are no doubt aware, PE lessons are difficult to replicate at home! We do firmly believe, however, that exercise is not only good for your physical wellbeing but also your mental health. We're sure that everyone agrees that both of these aspects of wellbeing are vitally important and as such, we do want you to enjoy regular breaks from the screen and ensure you do get fresh air and exercise. 

 

The link below will take you to the Lancashire School Games website. Here you will find links to different sports websites. Please visit these regularly throughout the day as well as ensuring you do also take advantage of your daily exercise too. 

 

We would LOVE to see pictures of you having fun, enjoying your down time and participating in permitted sports/recreational activities. One of the things we enjoy so much about teaching you is hearing you laugh and tell stories of things you have been doing at home. Indulge us by sharing these with us as well as the more formal side of remote learning!

If you have done something that you particularly enjoyed, are really proud of or think other children in our class would like to see, please do email it in with an explanation from your parents that gives their permission to share it here!

TT Rockstars

 

We have noticed that some of you have been using Times Tables Rockstars whilst others are somewhat more reluctant.  Remember this is a great way to learn multiplication and division facts and a great way to challenge your friends. Keep up the good work those of you who have been using this website!

   You can now use your ttrockstars username and password to access Numbots from this website.
