Year 2 Home Learning- Friday 26th February 2021

Hello Year 2!

Welcome back to another day of home learning😊

There will be two live lessons tomorrow, Maths at 9.30am (multiplication fact families) and Literacy at 11am (Comparing Victorian hospitals with hospitals today).  You should have received an invite for these sessions however if not, then you can join the meetings through the Teams app. Please come to each meeting armed with paper and a pen to write.

Following the Maths lesson, the worksheet below should be completed.  You do not need to print this sheet but the children will need to see it so they can work out their answers. You can find both word and pdf versions below.

If you are unable to attend the live sessions, a recording of the lesson will always be available afterwards.  Worksheets and any further instructions will be shared via the website. We understand that this is tricky for some of you working from home, especially those with siblings so we understand that it is not always possible to join live. We hope the recordings help to support this. 

Other home learning activities set for today:

Spellings – our spelling rule for this week is the ‘suffix -y endings’.  Please see Mrs Thomas’ website post for today’s activity.

If you have any questions please email us on newdale.year2team@taw.org.uk

Year 6 World Book Day Information

Thursday 4th March is World Book Day. This year,  our whole school theme is ‘Alice in Wonderland’. We appreciate that things are different this year, so we have come up with a range of activities for the children to complete throughout the day which you will see attached.

Please look at this document for some ideas. We have sent this early to allow you time to prepare anything in advance that you would like. As ever, we cannot wait to see what the children do so please post pictures to the blog for us to share in our assembly in the afternoon.

In the afternoon, we will be watching ‘Alice in Wonderland’. We know that you may not have access to this so any film that was originally a book will be absolutely fine for the children to watch. We hope the children have lots of fun!

Kind regards,

The Year 6 Team

Important Information/Return to school survey for pupils

Hello!

We are so excited to welcome all of Year 2 back to school on Monday 8th March. So that we know what you are most looking forward to, we would like you to take the time to fill in this short survey with your child. The Newdale team can then collate any of the information to ensure that we make the transition back to school as easy as possible for your child.

5 House Points will be awarded to each child who completes the survey :) Please note that this is separate to the survey recently sent out to parents.

Important Date: Monday 15th March

Hello Year 2!

At Newdale, we are very lucky to have lots of resources to help support us with our Maths. One program we use across school is, ‘Times Tables Rockstars’. This is introduced in Year 2 as children start to develop their understanding of multiplication and division.

On Monday 15th March, we are launching this across the whole of Year 2. As we unfortunately missed our Pirate Day, we are going all out for a ‘Rockstar Day’ instead! For this day, the children are welcome to come to school dressed as a rockstar. We understand that it is tricky with only essential shopping access in stores but we hope you agree that the children will thoroughly enjoy the day.

World Book Day

World book day takes place on 4th March.  The school’s whole theme is based around the story Alice in Wonderland.  Your child is invited to dress up on that day as a character from the story however, please feel free to send them in any other dressing up clothes.  We really don’t want you to go out especially to buy anything.  In addition, if your child chooses not to dress up that is absolutely fine too. Nursery also has some washed dressing up clothes ready if any child would like to use those instead, so again please don’t go out and buy anything new.

Thanks again

Mrs Curnow

Year 5 World Book Day

Dear parents/carers,

Thursday 4th March is World Book Day. This year,  our whole school theme is ‘Alice in Wonderland’. We appreciate that things are different this year, so we have come up with a range of activities for the children to complete. These will be posted to Google Classroom the night before should you wish to print any of the activities off (colouring sheets, word searches, spot the difference activities). The ‘Alice in Wonderland’ themed work for this day will be put into one folder on Google Classroom entitled World Book Day.

Please look at this document for some ideas. We have sent this early to allow you time to prepare anything in advance that you would like. As ever, we cannot wait to see what the children do so please post pictures to the blog.

WOW introduction to Florence Nightingale Topic

This afternoon to introduce our new History topic and key historical person for this term, Florence Nightingale, we looked at a Doctors role play set of equipment and then Mrs Fullerton brought in a defibrilation bag and her old Paramedic bag of equipment.

Before working at Newdale, Mrs Fullerton was a Paramedic and very like Florence Nightingale, would go and help those most in need.

We had a wonderful time exploring the equipment- luckily Mrs Fullerton had enough masks for us all to try our own on so we could be COVID secure! We learnt that adult oxygen masks are blue and children masks are pink!
We then compared Uniforms, equipment, Hospitals and technology from now to then when Florence was alive.

We are so excited about our new topic and cannot wait for next week already!
