As another week of home learning comes to a close, let us just say how impressed we have been with the level of effort that the children have been putting in to their lessons. It isn’t easy to learn from home, even with Google Meets to support you!

Friday’s lessons:

  • Maths (9:00)- Dividing 4 digit numbers by one digit, using the ‘bus stop method’.
  • Literacy (11:00) – Editing our writing (with some people finishing it off first!)
  • Topic (art) – Using the illustrations from ‘The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse’ to create some artwork based on kindness. There is not a Google Meet for this session, but all of the resources and instructions you need are in your packs or on Google Classroom.

There will also be a special mention assembly at 2:45, which will use the Special Mention Assembly classroom meet link. Make sure you’re in the right assembly so that you don’t miss it!

Enjoy your day and have a great weekend!

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone is doing okay and not having too many technical issues. I know that we had quite a big one yesterday (henceforth known as the Great Calamity) but I was very impressed with how sensibly the children responded to this problem.

Wednesday’s Learning:

Maths – Continuing our work on dividing 2 digit numbers by 1 digit (p38-41)
Literacy – Writing the opening and build up of our Beowulf retelling (extended write)
Guided Reading – Creating a ‘Wanted’ poster about Grendel using clues from the text (we had to make a slight change to yesterday’s lesson due to the technical difficulties!)
Coding – Developing the Python code started in last week’s session (with Mrs Du Preez)

Thursday’s Learning:

Maths – Dividing 3 digit numbers by 1 digit (p42-45)
Literacy – Writing the dilemma, resolution and ending to our stories (extended write)
Topic (History) – Where did the early Anglo-Saxons live and how do we know? There will not be a Google Meet for this session, but all of the instructions will be posted on the 5L/5W Classrooms.

Enjoy your day!
