Fun in the sun!

Posted on Friday 26 June 2020 by Miss Harker

The children in school have settled well but staying cool in the warm weather has been a challenge!

I love hearing from the home learners. Your photographs certainly put a smile on my face. I miss having all of our class together even though it’s been lovely having some children back in school.

Home learning help

Posted on Friday 12 June 2020 by Mrs Latham

The teachers at school have been talking to some families who are continuing to learn from home this week. There was a common topic of conversation : this is all dragging on and becoming quite tricky at times!

It has been a long time since we have all been back at school with our classes and we understand that home learning is challenging. Here are a few links that might help if you are wanting more activities to engage your child.

This is great for working on all number facts and you can try to improve your own score. We use this in school on iPads but can also be played on laptops : https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Passwords for Numbots or Times Table Rockstars are the same : https://play.numbots.com/#/intro or https://ttrockstars.com/ Email your teacher if you have lost it.

Loads of resources on here including reading : https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/parents

For reading and phonics games : https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

Maths teaching videos and other resources : https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

Variety of lessons, recorded by teachers : https://classroom.thenational.academy/

We love Go Noodle for a sing and dance : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2YBT7HYqCbbvzu3kKZ3wnw

Or Cosmic Yoga Kids for a more relaxing workout : https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga

Please ring school or email your child’s teacher if you need support and we will try to help.

Carry on learning

It has been lovely to welcome a few more members of 1/2 back into school this week. However, I’m missing each and every one of you who can’t join us right now. Thank you to the children who have continued to send me emails and photographs of your home learning. It really helps me feel like I’m still your teacher!

 

I can sing a rainbow…

We had a go at making our own rainbow art. The children finger painted rainbows and used coloured lollipop sticks to create temporary works of art.

 

 

A week at St James’

Posted on Friday 05 June 2020 by Miss Harker

I am back in school so I also have some learning from school to share. I am still enjoying seeing what everyone is doing at home. Please keep sending me messages and photos.

Home learning: maths

Posted on Thursday 21 May 2020 by Miss Harker

I have enjoyed seeing the practical maths learning all about measuring height, length and capacity.

If you haven’t been in touch with me for a while, please send me a quick email to let me know what you’ve been up to.

Happy and healthy home learning

Posted on Thursday 21 May 2020 by Miss Harker

We pride ourselves on being a happy and healthy place to learn when we are at school. It is particularly important at this difficult time to keep fit.

Levi has been doing DVD workouts in the house.

Lucas has been playing basketball.

Why not set yourself a challenge today?

Home Learning

I have seen some great learning this week all about quarter turns and much more:

Get caught in a super book!

The Boy who Cried Wolf

It was lovely to receive this video showing a child reading. By the end of key stage 1, children must be able to read at a rate of 90 words per minute. Reading for pleasure improves well-being, develops empathy and teaches children about the world around them. Please keep reading any chance you get!

Keep it coming…

I have had lots of photos and emails this week. Thank you! It was great to see some of you practically making halves of shapes, objects and amounts.
