Circus tricks!

Miss Newport’s class had lots of fun practising some circus skills today.  Our visitor from the circus showed us how to use scarves, beanbags and even peacock feathers to do some circus tricks.  We learnt that it must take a lot of practise to be a member of the circus!

Self-isolation tasks

Dear Parents/Carers,

In the unfortunate event that your child has to self-isolate at home, it has been suggested that they continue to produce work across the curriculum if they are well enough. As teachers will be unable to provide supervision, the following sites have been suggested to ensure that your child can continue to make progress from home:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zsjqtfr

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

We are currently focusing on Place Value and mental maths in Maths, diary and narrative writing in Literacy, USA Geography, Materials and their Properties in Science and Sikhism in RE. The Oak Academy link has fantastic video lessons alongside little quizzes and short, yet engaging tasks.

Alongside these sites, the children should read daily for c. 20 minutes using bug club and they could also practise spellings using Ed Shed. Pupil logins are noted in reading diaries.

Should your child wish to challenge themselves, they may wish to create projects around these questions:

What is each of the states in the USA famous for?

Which musicians play “Blues” and what are their best songs?

Which substances in the kitchen will dissolve in water?

Who was Guru Nanak and why do Sikhs still remember him?

If you were given £100, how could you invest it wisely to make more money?

 

We hope that this will provide enough to keep your child stimulated and ensure that they feel confident about their return to school.

 

Kind regards,

 

The Year 5 Team

 

💻 Year 2 Times Tables 🧮

Good afternoon,

The Year 2 team would just like to say a massive thank you for your support with reading and times tables practise at home since our return!

We understand that multiplication is a new skill to the majority of children in the year but we are very proud of how hard they tried in their first quiz this week.

Below, we have popped a link to a website that we will be using in school to help with the rapid recall of times tables. It is also useful for recapping number bonds to both 10 and 20.

Thank you for your continued support.

Best wishes,

The Year 2 Team ☺️

Year 3 Circus Fun!

Year 3 had lots of fun during our Splats Circus lesson today!

We began by throwing and catching colourful scarves, before learning how to balance bean bags on our bodies. After lots of practice, we were soon able to use two bean bags to juggle!

We can’t wait to have more fun with the circus again tomorrow!

Welcome back Mighty Oaks

The children have had a fantastic start back to Mighty Oaks , they’ve enjoyed exploring our investigation areas and the outside play ground.

On Tuesdays we are very lucky to have the cross bar PE coaches with us teaching the morning children lots of different activities and games.

If your child attends the morning sessions on Tuesdays, please can you make sure they have sensible footwear to join in and a little reminder to label their clothing and bottles.

Ladybugs doing P.E 🐞🎾

Starting this week in nursery we will be doing P.E with the crossbars coaches on the school astroturf.

For ladybugs this will be every Tuesday morning, so could you please make sure your children have suitable footwear and clothing as this will be outside. So trainers, a waterproof coat and a change of clothes in there bag if we need to use it.

Ladybugs had a lovely time this morning exploring with the balls and nets. The bouncy hoppers and kicking or catching the footballs.

Here is some photos to share with you…
