Hi Skylarks class and parents,

It's Friday! You have made it to the end of your first week of learning at home, did you enjoy it? Did it feel a bit different? I hope you have managed to work through parts of your home learning packs and completed different learning of your choice so far. For today, continue working through these packs and start winding down for the weekend. This may be a difficult weekend as you should stay in your homes and can't socialise in the normal way you are used too. 

Why not:

Design and make a new game

Draw a picture of your family 

Do something new and exciting!

 

Today's riddle: What is easy to get into but hard to get out of?

Yesterday's answer: an envelope 

Message from Mrs Powell:

“The most wonderful thing about Tiggers is, I’m the only one.” Tigger

Good morning children! This morning I want you to think about how special and unique you are, talk to someone in your house about all the special qualities that make you unique. What about the people you live with, what makes them special, why don’t you tell them!

I have enjoyed spending time with our family dog Ruby! 

  

Have a lovely weekend and I will be in touch with what you need to do next week.

Stay safe and look after each other!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all looking after yourselves. Have a look at completing Joe Wickes live PE session at 9am. Search into youtube 'The Body Coach TV'. They have been great the past few days and they have certainly made me work hard so give it a try and challenge yourselves this morning. Continue working through your packs and completing the project work which is listed on the time table posted on Tuesday's blog. 

Today's riddle: What begins with an E but only has one letter?

Yesterday's answer: Seven

Message from Mrs Powell:

“It never hurts to keep looking for sunshine.” Eeyore

Dear children, I have a challenge for everyone to do in your house. Can you think of three lovely things to happen each day, then either tell them to someone in your house or write them down? I’m going to do this and hopefully we will all try and find our own sunshine.

 

Take care everyone and look after each other. Remember to be: Ready, Respectful and Safe.

Hello all,

I hope you are all well and making sure that you are staying in your homes and looking after one another. Please continue to follow the daily timetable and task list which was attached to my blog yesterday and work through the activities in your packs. Today, I am really missing you all. I miss the sound of your laughter in particular, I hope you are laughing and happy at home. 

I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.” Winnie the Pooh.

Today's riddle: I am an odd number. Take away a letter and I become even. What number am I?

Yesterday's answer: Your name

 

Message from Mrs Powell:

Dear children, We all have more time, are you thinking about the things you like to do at home and at school. Please tell someone all about it and keep talking, it is great to talk!

Hi Skylarks and parents,

I hope you had a lovely first day completing fun activities and just generally trying to get used to this new, unfamiliar situation. The weather was great again so I hope you managed to spend some family time out in the sunshine. 

Today's riddle:

What belongs to you, but other people use it more than you?

Yesterday's riddle answer: Your fingers

Please work through your packs at your own pace, choosing the activities that you do in the morning (maths, comprehension or spelling). In the afternoon, you will complete a project which is explained and links are given on the timetable attachment. If you need any help, please tweet or tweet the work that you have produced as I would love to see what amazing work you are doing at home!

Remember you can learn in many other ways: learning to cook your favourite food, hoovering, washing the dishes, working the washing machine, gardening, etc. 

Message from Mrs Powell:

“When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.” Winnie the Pooh

Dear children, We have all started on a strange adventure, I wonder what we will learn to do over the next few months? I think you will find that your parents are the best teachers! Enjoy any activity you do for the first time, we are going to make bread in my house!

Thank you for your continued suppport.

Hi everyone,

What a gorgeous weekend it was for the children, I hope you all managed to get plenty of sunshine in the safest way possible. This first week is going to be tough and it is important to look after one another and spent lots of time together as a family! It feels weird for me, the fact I cannot see all your lovely faces on a Monday morning. Remember those letters we wrote to one another in class need to be kept unti you really need them! 

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart…I’ll always be with you.” A.A. Milne.

Here’s a  little riddle to get you and your family talking; I will post one a day or a joke. 

Riddle: When things go wrong, what can you always count on?

Please find attached a timetable for how you can structure your childs learning throughout the day. It is important that you make sure that you both (home educators and children) are in the right frame of mind for learning. As we are all going through a new experience, we are all here to support one another and it is important that if your child is struggling with anything that you tweet us.

Today, your child should follow the attached timetable for Monday.

Activities for the day:

  • Complete active exercise for example: five a day, going for a walk with your family, yoga, https://www.nhs.uk/10-minute-shake-up/shake-ups 
  • Complete unit 12: Decimals, lesson 1. The children will be looking at a new concept of adding and subtracting decimals. The children have already worked with adding and subtracting fractions with the same and different denominators.  Explain to your children that fractions and decimals have a lot in common with each other (where whole numbers are broken into parts making them less than a whole number) e.g. 1/10 is the same as 0.1 (https://learnzillion.com/lesson_plans/7373-understand-the-value-of-a-digit-in-a-decimal-number/) Work through the first 3 pages of lesson 1 (do not worry if your child does not complete this in one session. Please find the starter picture to ask questions to get them thinking about demials in the links at the bottom of the blog. 
  • Complete a few games on TT rockstars https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school
  • Your child can then have time to do something creative of their choice. For example: 

    Lego, drawing, crafting, music, cooking, baking, coding, painting.

    Apps such as: book creator, quiver, tynker and imovie (all free)
  • Lunch time
  • Quiet time after lunch to read, nap, complete a puzzle (ensure this is a time with no electronics).
  • Complete project for History/Geography- For today, get your child to conduct some independent research finding out about how homes have changed over the years, dating back to the Stone Age. Your child can do this however they wish, here are some ideas of how they can present it: Complete a timeline on; publisher, draw your own timeline with drawings of the houses, print out pictures and make a timeline on your carpet. Get your child to think about how the homes have changed over time and to compare to make a list of the similarities and the differences. Here are some useful websites: https://www.timetoast.com/timelines/the-evolution-of-housing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoCZnboThfk
  • Complete your day by having fun, going outside and playing in the garden or going for another walk. 

 

Please ensure that whenever your child is conducting research that is independent that you have checked that they are staying safe online, this is something they are very good at in school. Just mention to them if anything appears that they are uncomfortable with or feel distressed by that they need to alert an adult in the house. 

 

Stay safe and look after each other.

The children will begin to develop writing this week and incorporate what they already know and what they are learning in our topic sessions which are based around the adrift project. 

In maths, we are looking at adding and subtracting fractions with the same and different denominators. If any of your children are struggling to complete the homework; please make sure they come to me on a Wednesday lunchtime where children are given the opportunity to complete homework tasks and ask for support.

Hi everyone,

The children have had a brilliant final week back after half-term. They have begun to write their final piece based on the book 'Arthur and the Golden rope'. They have made a fantastic start and will continue to finish this in the new week and then we will begin exploring our new class book.

In maths, the children have finished looking at short division and are now exploring fractions, looking at equivalent fractions to begin with.

A note was given in the final week before half-term about maths homework. The children will have their homework checked this week (Friday. Please continue to make sure your children are practicing times tables in a way that is most memorable for them or on TT rockstars.

Hi everyone,

The children have had a brilliant final week before half-term creating their plans for their final piece of writing for Arthur and the Golden rope.  After half-term, the children will be starting to write their new piece and complete them by the end of the week and have time allocated to edit and improve their pieces of work. 

In maths, the children have been looking at short division working to divide up to 4 digit numbers by one digit. The children will come back after half-term and begin to look at fractions. 

A note was given last week about all the homework in the CGP maths books that the children should have completed. Over half-term, if your child hasn't made a start to page 24, this will need to be done for the first Friday back in school. 

Please make sure your children are continuing to go on TT rockstars as they are realising how important it is in our multiplication and division units, to know their times tables.

Hi everyone,

Thank you for attending our class worship, the children had a really enjoyable time sharing their knowledge with you. There was such a great atmosphere and sense of pride when you all came to look at your children's books. 

This week the children have been doing some fantastic pieces of writing, they have planned and written a recount of Arthur's journey through the sea using relative clauses, expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbials to link the paragraphs together. Next week, we will be planning our own fantasy story using our book 'Arthur and the Golden rope' to guide us. 

In maths, the children have been grappling with long multiplication and putting it into practice. We will continue to rehearse this for the remainder of the week, before moving on to short division next week. 

 

A note will be coming home this week to remind the children of the maths homework they should have completed by the 14.2.20. Therefore, I won't be setting anymore homework this week but if the children would like to get a headstart before the homework for half-term then they will need to complete page 24.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Hi everyone,

Skylarks have had an exciting week learning about perimeter and area in maths. As there homework for this week, instead of doing their homework book, I would like them to tell define what perimeter and area are to their friends and family. Next week, we will be continuing to look at this and then going back into our multiplication and division; starting with multiplying 2 digit numbers.

The children had two visitors this week, who came in to speak to them about managing finance. There was a 'grandfather' figure who told them a story about his grandchildren and how he needed to save, estimate and total costs to buy all his grandchildren things that they wanted. The children really got on board and involved with this and it was fantastic to see their maths skills playing a big part in this. 

In writing, we have been looking at new, unfamiliar language and using dictionaries and iPads to decifer what the words mean. The children have been introduced to their new book and have begun to predict what the book may be about and the plot of the story. They will be using expanded noun phrases and relative clauses to describe the main character 'Arthur'.

Homework:

Reading 

Spelling (I am sending home spellings that we have already looked at this term, but I feel there is still a gap so would like to revisit them).

Hi everyone,

Skylarks have had a fantastic week completing their work on The Lost Happy Endings. This week, they have started to look at their new book 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' which will link nicely to our Vikings topic work. 

In maths, the children have been looking at using factors to grapple with them to secure their understanding of factors and prime numbers. They have also been looking at squared numbers and cube numbers. In the following week, we will be looking at using the inverse operations and looking at multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. 

Over the next few weeks, the children will be mapping out which countries the Vikings came from and where they migrated too. We will be delving deeper by looking at the counties that they moved too in the UK. The children will be looking into the reasons as to why the Vikings migrated.

Cheshire Fire Service will be coming into school Friday 17th January in the afternoon to talk to children about how to keep safe and what to do if a fire was to occur.

Hi everyone,

Happy New Year, I hope everyone had a lovely and relaxed Christmas holiday. Skylarks class came back to school in such a positive manner and showed just how much they have grown since the beginning of this academic year. 

The children have been thrown in at the deep end this week by beginning to write their final piece of writing to conclude our book 'The Lost Happy Endings'. The children have really enjoyed reading this story and recreating their own fairytale story incorporating dialogue and using techniques such as: personification, metaphors and similes. 

In maths, the children have started looking at prime and squared numbers and have worked really well with our new scheme 'Power Maths'. The children have all showed initiative and enthusiasm for what they are learning about; which is brilliant. 

Looking into the new week, we will be starting our new class book and will be looking into cubed numbers, explore using factors and using the inverse operations.

The children have been working hard in the final week running up to half term. We have completed a series of diary entries to finish our writing based on the Queen of the Falls. The children have thoroughly enjoyed this book and should be proud of all the work they have achieved. When we return to school after half-term we will be starting our new book 'The Happy Lost Endings'. 

The children have been really challenging themselves in maths and have worked so hard. When they return to school, we will be looking at line graphs developing skills on how to read, interpret and present results. 

Homework:

Reading

Times tables

Spellings

CGP maths books: pages 21 and 22

 

I hope everyone has a safe and well-earnt rest. 

Thank you

Miss Thwaites and Mrs. Hulse

Hi Everyone,

Thank you to all the parents who were able to make parents evening over the last two evenings. If anyone has any further questions or queries do not hesitate to come and speak to me. Looking forward to our final week before half term, Skylarks will be looking at multi-step problems using their knowledge of addition and subtraction. The children will be planning their final write to plan and write a series of diaries about significant events in Annie Edson Taylor’s life.

The children will be going on their trip to the Lion Salt Works on Monday 21st October, they will need to wear their uniforms and will require coats.

Next Friday 25th October, it will be a non-uniform day and the children are asked to bring a bottle in for Friends Of Lostock.
