Email teachers if you’re unsure about some aspect of the home learning. The email addresses follow the same pattern in Key Stage 1 and 2:
joebloggs@spherefederation.org

In my case, this means the email to use is:

nataliebeatson@spherefederation.org

I’ll aim to reply on the same day and no later than the following morning. To keep this manageable, please restrict emails to one per day, per child.

PE with Joe Wicks

Posted on Sunday 22 March 2020 by Mrs Latham

Some classes have used Joe Wicks workouts in their PE lessons recently and he has sent a message for you all.

Starting Monday 23rd March I’m going to be hosting a free workout aimed at kids LIVE on my YouTube channel.

With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it’s more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive.

Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic.

The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even adults can get involved.

You don’t need any equipment, just tune in to my YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout.

One more thing! I really need your help to spread this message. So please please share this with everyone that might like to get involved, and together we can help keep the nation moving 🙏🏻

This week, the whole school has the same Talk Time homework: I can pay and receive compliments to/from people outside of school.

This homework, which links to our recent living and learning statement, is an opportunity for children to discuss the benefits of paying compliments to people. Here are some questions that might shape your discussion:

  • How does paying a compliment make you feel?
  • How does receiving a compliment make you feel?
  • Why is it important to be sensible when paying or receiving compliments?
  • Can you compliment people too much?
  • Is it ok to compliment a stranger? Is this safe?

Children should be ready to discuss what they’ve talked about at home by Thursday 26 March 2020. It would be even better if children were able to talk confidently about times when they have given, or received, a compliment.

Our homework this week is Creative: I can show my talents. 

All of the children in our school are blessed with an array of talents. This week, our homework, which links to our living and learning statement (I can recognise my talents), gives our children the opportunity to celebrate and share their talents. Children should respond creatively and be ready to show off their talents to their peers as part of their homework review. They could do this in a range of ways:

  • create a short performance to show to the class
  • film themselves showing off their talent
  • make a collage of their many talents
  • produce a piece of art to show off their talents

There are, of course, many other ways that children could respond. Children should be ready to show off their talents by Thursday 19 March 2020.

Good morning everyone, and welcome to another week of home learning. You are all doing amazingly! Did any of you do Mr Mills’ Friday challenge?

Maths: Last Friday’s challenge answers.  This week’s learning. Year 4 main learning video and challenge video. Year 4 worksheet.     Year 3 learning video and Year 3 worksheet.

Reading: Today we are going to have another look at the text from Friday. Your challenge is to answer the questions set by your class mates last week. (These questions were written by Leah.)

Topic: Today we are learning more about counties in the United Kingdom. Use compass directions to find the counties.

Spellings: This week we are revising the long e vowel sound. There is a wordsearch for you to do and a  wordsearch template so that you can create your own. Here is also a reminder page of spelling strategies that you could use.

May the 4th be with you. (This is a Star Wars joke – May the force be with you!)
