We've reached the end of another week, that's felt like it's passed by very quickly. A huge thank you and well done for your continued efforts at home with the remote learning, there have been some excellent pieces coming in. I have really enjoyed talking to you via Google Meet or Zoom and being able to teach some of you virtaully via video link when there are things that you need guidance with. I have also enjoyed having the children in for CWC at school, as it feels like a very tight knit group. This week, you have been looking at Multiplication and Division, this unit will come to an end on Wednesday next week with our end of block assessment. We have also nearly reached the end of our work on The Lost Words, our English text and I have had some fabulaous poetry coming in. Monday will be the last day to send in your completed work, as I would like to create our class book from your work. We will then be moving on to a short, but creative 4 day English block on Tuesday - more details then...
This week has been Children's Mental Health Week and I know that people enjoyed the assembly for this. I loved the onesies that people were wearing for PE today, although you must have been very hot! We had a great afternoon at school expressing ourselves through art, model making and outdoor play, I hope your afternoon was as good. Please send your photos/videos or pieces of writing/art in, so that I can see how you expressed yourself this afternoon.
As of next week, the afternoon sessions will be different and a bit more fluid. After the results of our Parents Survey, we will keep the expectation that Maths and English is handed in daily but there will be no due date on the afternoon sessions - although still an expectation that people do the activities - the activities will be there for you to choose from, so if you are running short on time, pick one that you can fit in and complete. There are a lot of exciting and fun activities for the week next week and I hope that you will enjoy them. Among them is a Geography Challenge, set by Miss Radbourne - this is a competition, so you will need to return it earlier in the week if you want to be entered.
Well done to those of you who are getting out and about, logging this for our school team has meant that so far as a school we have travelled 16,000 km and have 31,000 remaining before we get to Tokyo. Our next stop is Rio and we have just under 4000 km to go before we get there. Please remember to log your activity - every kilometre counts! I know some people have ordered and had their skipping ropes delivered for the skipping challenge, have you ordered yours yet? There's still time, have a look at the link on Whole School Story for more information.
Finally, one of the struggles that we have had during lockdown is access to good reliable devices. If you are struggling with your access to the remote learning because your device is slow or old, Miss C still has a few devices that are available for parents to support with learning at home. Should you require one, please contact Miss Chauhan directly and she will endeavour to make a device available to you.
I hope that you have a great weekend whatever you are up to.
