Dear Mulberry and Heather Class,
We hope you are all keeping well. We know you may be a little confused and worried about what might be happening in the next couple of weeks/months but we will get through these uncertain times.
Although most of you will not be coming into school for a while, it is important that you keep smiling and learning. Remember you will be going to secondary school in September and it is important that you are ready for that new and exciting challenge.
Even though SATs have been cancelled, the learning you have completed towards SATs is never wasted and needs to continue. With that in mind, we will update the Home Learning Blog on the website with activities to complete over the week and you all have your CGP books to work through. We suggest you begin at the beginning of each book and complete a section a day.
Use the mymaths website on a daily basis to revise and develop your maths skills. Complete the lessons first before attempting the online homework. Remember, you don’t need to login to complete the homework just click on ‘Practice’. It will mark it for you as well.
You all know that we believe reading is the most important skill you will ever achieve academically. It is the key that unlocks all learning, develops your vocabulary and imagination and opens whole new worlds. Read every day for at least 20 minutes.
It is also important you have lots of fun!! We know you already enjoy playing your online games with your friends; we’re sure that will continue but please don’t allow your day to be filled with gaming. Spring is coming and it’s important that you play outside in your garden and get plenty of fresh air and exercise. Think of something you could do outside, e.g. plant seeds, vegetables, help weed, build a den, do some wild art, build a bug home. Check out ‘50 things to do before you are 11 ¾’ on the National Trust website. Many of the activities can be completed in your garden.
Finally, work hard, be positive, smile, stay safe, wash your hands, have fun and be good!
Big virtual hugs! From Mrs Francis, Mrs Wood, Mrs Bates, Miss Francis and Miss Clulow.
