  • BLENDED HOME LEARNING WB 13th JULY

    Published 08/07/20, by Jennie Morgan

    Hi Maple Class,

    We have had a great week and have had lots of success with our work on fractions.

    Please find attached the next blended home learning mat. Thank you to those of you that have already emailed a photo of your child's English work. I have loved seeing them and will email you back with some feedback. This week we are using the Hamilton Trust for English as Oak have finished for the summer holiday. The lessons are well resourced and you should have everything you need in the pack I have sent home. Please don't bring the pack back into school next week as it isn't easy for me to look at safely. Photos of what you have done would be lovely!

    I am looking forward to seeing you again on Monday for another couple of wonderful days.

    Have a lovely weekend,

    Mrs Morgan

    Hi Maple Class,

    Please find attached the next blended home learning mat. I hope you found last week very straightforward with the resources that were sent home and the information on the school blog.

    Thank you to those of you that have already emailed a photo of your child's extended writing. I have loved seeing them and will email you back with some feedback. If you haven't yet sent me a photo I will be in touch by email.

    I am looking forward to seeing you again on Monday for another couple of wonderful days.

    Have a lovely weekend,

  • BLENDED LEARNING MAT WB 26.06.20

    Published 26/06/20, by Jennie Morgan

    Dear Maple Class,

    You have all been superstars over the last couple of weeks and we have been incredibly proud of how well you have adapted to being back. From now on I will blog a weekly ‘blended learning mat’ every Friday. This new style of mat will give a clear picture of what we will be covering in school and what we would like you to do at home on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

    To allow a smooth transition between school and home we will be using Oak National Academy lessons for English and White Rose Home Learning for Maths. Each week we would like you to do the Oak National Academy extended writing on a Thursday and Friday and then email a photo of the writing to us. This will mean we can give feedback and share this with the children on Monday. We will also now be doing a spelling quiz on a Monday so please have a go at learning the weekly spellings set (this will be printed for you). Every Tuesday your child will come home with resources to allow you to carry out the tasks as easily as possible.

    For those of you that are returning to school on Monday we want you to know that we are very excited to see you. During the weekend please familiarise yourself with the Rainbow Rules and watch the welcome back to school video:

    Please remember to use the class email address for any question and I will be more than happy to help.

    Have a lovely weekend,

    Mrs Morgan 😊

  • Monday 22nd June 2020

    Published 22/06/20, by Jennie Morgan

    The children in school have had a wonderful day today. This morning we introduced our new special friends for the week. We are looking at 'ai' snail in the rain, 'ay' may I play and 'a-e' make a cake. Then we started to look at information texts and finding information from a text to answer questions. In maths we have moved onto place value and we were counting to 100.

    This afternoon we had lots of fun looking at mini beasts during Forest Schools.
