Maple Class

Summer term letter

Dear Parents and Carers,

Class code for google classroom:    ycosp5c

I hope that you have had a lovely Easter break and managed to enjoy the warm weather! We will be continuing this term with our Google Classroom Learning. Lessons will be uploaded each day at 9am. In order for your child to continue making good progress in their learning, it is important that you are engaging with the online learning daily and uploading images of the work onto the google classroom to be marked and commented upon. I am always available to help you through any difficulties that may arise.

Below is our topic grid for the this term – Animals with an art focus of Antony Gormely. I have attached the two weeks of home learning activities for this topic and there are also lots of links and websites on Google Classroom also, under the ‘daily topic’ tab.

Children should listen to and watch the powerpoint presentations for both Maths and English daily, these are only up to 10 minutes long and children may pause and refer to these powerpoints to complete their work. Once work has been completed please remember to upload a picture of the work and upload pictures of your child doing the activities onto our google classroom.

In English, we will be focussing on creating an effective setting description based on the story ‘The Night Gardener’. Children will listen to me reading our story and will explore lots of powerful vocabulary to take the reader into the setting.

In Maths, we will be finishing off our fractions work and then we will be learning to tell the time, remember this can be a tricky subject so lots of practice at home, using different clocks would really help your child! Following this, we will learn about volume and will then review topics from earlier in the year.

Please find below the topic work to be chosen from over the next two weeks -don’t forget to take a photo and put it onto Google classroom for us to see!

Reading is very important and it will help with expanding your child’s vocabulary! I have added more e-books onto Google Classroom but you are also welcome to complete the reading tasks grid using your own books at home. Also, there is a fun reading challenge that you can do along with the book that you are reading here.

There is still also an opportunity to enter the NWAT 500 word writing competition. Prizes will be in Waterstones vouchers for children. Please ensure that pictures of the entries are clear and readable and include your school name, full name and year group, or enter them onto Google classroom and we can submit them for you. Closing date Friday 1st May 2020 – 500 word writing competition

Please remember if you have any concerns to get in touch.

Miss Norris and Miss Brittleton
