Week beginning 11th January
I'm looking forward to starting some live lessons this week as well as seeing you all at our 9am daily morning meeting. Please log on to Teams to join in.
This week, every day, you will be completing spelling tasks, reading, producing a non-chronological report about a rainforest animal, improving your arithmetic and building on multiplication skills.
As well as all your English and maths learning, another foundation subject will be set each day.
Lessons will have clear instructions on what to do. Some will be lessons provided by Oak Academy or BBC Bitesize. Some will have instructional videos with some familiar faces!
Please don't worry, you can ask me questions at our morning meeting if you're not sure about anything.
I know some people work quicker than others, so am adding some great web links below if you complete your assignments for the day.
Foundation subjects this week:
Monday - Computing
Tuesday - Geography
Wednesday - Science
Thursday - Art
Friday - Fit Fridays with Mrs Harrowell and Mr Hastings
Remote Learning update!
From Wednesday 6th January, I will be uploading work onto Teams. For these first three days, we will be practising, making sure everyone can log on and ensuring that we all know how to access work and are able to 'turn it in'.
The expectations this week are approximately:
15 minutes of spellings every day
20 minutes of Read Theory every day
30 minutes of English every day
15 minutes of arithmetic every day
30 minutes of White Rose Maths every day
There will also be other lessons such as geography and science throughout the week.
I also expect you to read your own choice of book for at least 30 minutes a day and don't forget to watch Newsround too if you can!
On Wednesday 6th January I have invited all those not working in school to a meeting on Teams, so we can catch up and you can ask any questions you have.
In the coming weeks we will hopefully be using live Teams meeting more for our lessons, so this will be good practice.
Hope you have a good week
Spellings - Week 1 - 6/1/2021
Cherry Class Assembly!
This week we have been working on producing our class assembly video. The theme of collective worship this half term has been courage. As it has also been Remembrance Day this week, we decided to use this as the basis of our assembly. The children have been working hard on their artwork, remembering lines, acting, filming and we've even had a couple of children doing the lighting. Altogether, we have had great fun creating this video and we hope that you all enjoy it!

Maths - Knowledge Organisers
SUPER SIX: Please could you help your child to make sure they have the essential items at school: writing pen, pencil, rubber, ruler, pencil sharpener & glue stick.
P.E.: This half term Cherry class will have P.E. on Fridays (weather permitting). The children will need to wear their PE kits to school - not their school uniform. They will remain to their PE kits all day. Please still ensure that all items are labelled.
Homework: Maths and English homework are both set on Fridays, to be returned by the following Friday.
Spellings will be set every week; however, we have given the children an overview sheet for all the spellings for this half term. Please try to learn these at home - there will be a test every Friday.

Read a book (or even two!) and review it on Our Reading Den: https://www.ourreadingden.com/
Writing - These are the objectives that the children and teachers use to assess and mark writing tasks. They do not have to do every objective in one piece of writing, it can be across a few pieces.
Below are some home learning packs for each year group from White Rose Maths, which is a scheme we use in school. There are videos to help explain the area of maths the children are looking at and activities to go with it.
Useful learning apps for tablets
If you have any more suggestions please let me know so that we can share them with other parents.
