Welcome to Hawthorn Class
Please access all your remote learning through Teams as everything will be posted there.
Every day, you will be completing spelling tasks, reading, English, arithmetic and other maths (the new topics every day).
As well as all your English and maths learning, there will be another foundation subject set each day.
Lessons will have clear instructions on what to do. Some will have videos recorded by the Phase 2 team, others will include videos provided by other organisations.
Foundation subjects will run as follows:
Monday - Computing
Tuesday - Geography
Wednesday - Science
Thursday - Art
Friday - P.E. - Fit Fridays with Mrs Harrowell and Mr Hastings
There are other optional activities in your Teams channels
9th January 2021
We did it!! I am so proud of you Hawthorn Class. You have managed to change from expecting to come into school to working from home and using a relatively new online system without any notice. Most of you have successfully sent in work to be reviewed and some of you have even responded to feedback and sent back improved work. There have been a few small issues, but we have achieved more than I dreamed of in week 1. Please do not worry if you are still getting used to the system (I think we all are) and tell your parents and carers not to worry too - we are going to get there together.
I look forward to seeing you every morning at 9.00 (the meeting link is in the morning registration channel) when I will go through the day and we can discuss any issues people are having. We will also be doing reading comprehension together and the teachers are recording other videos as well.
I will explain all on Monday! Have a lovely weekend.

Tuesday 5th January
From tomorrow (Wednesday 6th January), work will be uploaded onto Teams - this is where you will find all instructions, resources and meetings. This week we will be practising using Teams and online resources, making sure everyone can log on and ensuring that everyone knows how to access work and 'turn it in', plus review feedback from the teaching team.
Every day this week we expect you to do:
- 15 minutes of spellings
- 20 minutes of Read Theory
- 30 minutes of English
- 15 minutes of arithmetic
- 30 minutes of White Rose Maths
- Read your own choice of book, magazine or suitable online reading material for at least 30 minutes
There are also other lessons such as geography and science.
Try to watch Newsround too, if possible.
Tomorrow there is a meeting scheduled for Year 5 (9.00am) and another for Year 6 (9.30am) so we can catch up, explain how remote learning will work (and look at Teams together) and you can ask any questions you have.
Going forward we will have some live lessons, some recorded input and other activities.
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
