I'm writing this in the classroom at the end of the day when all of the children have gone and the classroom is quiet (and tidy!) The end of term seemed an awfully long way away but suddenly it's here and I hope we can all enjoy a bit of a break. Thank you to the children who have worked incredibly hard this term, under unusual circumstances, and thank you to all parents and carers who have supported their children in numerous ways. We'll be back before we know it but until then, all that's left is to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2021!
We've had a lovely week in Ash Class this week and we're beginning to feel very festive!
In English, we have finished our reports titled 'The Perils of Mt Etna'. Maths has been full of times tables this week, particularly focusing on the 9 times table and 7 times table. Thank you to those children who submitted their volcano research homework. Any feedback on the new Google classroom is welcomed but I'll continue to set homework 'offline' as well as online so it can be accessed by all.
Spellings this week: Choose 10 words from the word list to learn for next week.
Have a great weekend.
I have been really proud of the children this week for how well they have all handled the assessments we've been doing. No-one has complained and they have all taken it in their stride. Well done, Ash!
We are enjoying the countdown to Christmas with a virtual advent calendar every morning which gives us a Christmas riddle to solve. This will continue until the holidays and has been a great way to kick start those brains first thing!
Next week, we are back to normal and continuing our Multiplication and Division topic in Maths, focussing on the 6 and 7 times table. In English, we will be writing a non-chronological report linked to our learning in Geography about the dangers of volcanoes.
