Merry Christmas

admin on: Class 5

Merry Christmas from me and the Class 5 team. Thank you so much for your support this term; it hasn't been an easy time for anyone, but I for one have thoroughly enjoyed teaching the class. 

Here is a message from Mr. Curly Wurly:

Merry Christmas and a very happy 2021 to you all from Mr Curly Wurly. He has missed all of you children and staff this year but hopes to see you next year.

Have a wonderful holiday.
Lots of paws and furry tinsel,
Mr Curly Wurly

Important information regarding homework

admin on: Class 5

As you may have seen in the newsletter, notifications regarding homework will be moving from this blog to Microsoft Teams. I will be creating an 'announcement' each week on the 'General' area of our Class 5 Teams where it will notify the pupils of their Mathletics task and their spellings. In addition, I will add some form of assignment on Microsoft Teams. This could be a quiz, a research task or a piece of reading. 

The blog will continue to be used for sharing photographs and news of what we are doing in class. 

So for one final time on this blog here is this week's homework. 

1,) Mathletics is on statistics. We have looked at line graphs and timetables this week, but one of the Mathletics tasks will be on bar graphs. The other will be on timetables. 

2.) Spellings are the same as last week: reasonable, reasonably, responsible, responsibly, possible, possibly, legible, legibly. 

3.) A Microsoft Teams quiz on Ithaca.

Thank you to everyone who has engaged with Microsoft Teams and supported our move over to it. I see it as an incredibly useful tool to aid the children in home learning and homework. I will be hosting another online quiz on Monday 30th November at 4pm.

admin on: Class 5

Another weekend is upon us! I hope we have all had a good week. I can't believe we will be in the last full week of November next week!

Homework

1.) Mathletics: I have set two tasks. One on multiples and one on factors. 

2.) Spellings: The spellings this week are listed below. I have also added them onto Spelling Shed. 

      reasonable, reasonably, responsible, responsibly, possible, possibly, legible, legibly

3.) I have loaded up a new Teams task. It is a special mystery research task! 

Keep your eyes peeled next week for more information on another virtual author visit!

Thank you for all your support!

13.11.20 Update

admin on: Class 5

Wow, this week has flown by! It has been another busy week in Class 5. I must say, the enthusiasm this class have for learning is second to none. I thoroughly enjoy introducing them to new concepts. 

Homework

1.) Mathletics - Two tasks on Roman Numerals. My advice when converting our numbers to Roman numerals is to split it into place value. So with 1,235 you would make 1000 (M), make 200 (CC), make 30 (XXX) and make 5 (V). Then put it all together. MCCXXXV

2.) Spellings are the same as last week. I have put them on Spelling Shed. The spellings are: fasten, glisten, castle, listen, soften, whistle, wrestle, thistle.

3.) The Teams task last week didn't really work for many people. I think it is because iOS doesn't support the Class Notebook. This week, I have put an additional maths quiz on Teams. We not only covered Roman Numerals this week, but we also covered negative numbers, so I have put a quiz on this on. 

Microsoft Teams

Thank you again to all that could get onto our Teams lesson on Wednesday. I am aiming to do another one in the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for news of this. Miss Kelly was very impressed with the class and their behaviour and engagement. Unfortunately, each time I do one, some children will inevitably miss out as they will be in wraparound club. I will aim to do it on a different day next time, so other children can have a chance to get on. I will always do it about 4pm, as I am conscious that this is the children's own time and I wouldn't want to interrupt tea time! 

Obviously, I would hope that we wouldn't have to use Teams for home learning, as I would much prefer to be teaching in school. However, I feel confident now that if a bubble or school closure was to occur, we could carry on with new learning in a way we were not able to in the previous school closure. This has been made possible by the engagement of the pupils, so thank you so much. 

Jason McCartney

Today, our local MP for Colne Valley had a Teams meeting with Years 5 and 6. He explained the role of an MP and answered lots of questions from both Year 5 and Year 6 pupils. It was great to hear our children ask such intelligent and interesting questions. The children thoroughly enjoyed finding out about the role of an MP and hearing about the time that Mr. McCartney met the Queen!

Have a lovely weekend!

Mr. K
