Welcome to Kestrel Class!
A big welcome from Mrs Corcoran, Ms Sawyer and Mrs Whaley. We are really enjoying teaching your children this year!
As we approach the end of the year and are looking forward to our exciting move to the new school, our new topic for the Summer term will be "From Warninglid to Woodgate" This will give the children the chance to look at the location of the school, to think about what might change and to reflect on their special memories during their time at Warninglid.
Please find below an overview of all the learning we will be doing across the curriculum.
The children will be expected to complete a maths task on Mymaths each week. This will be set on a Thursday afternoon for the following Tuesday. In addition, the children should read every day for 20 mins, completing their reading journal and practise their spellings on Readiwriter. They will have a spelling test each week on this list.
In addition, the children have the chance to explore their own interests further by completing some activities from the Topic Grid, which is attached. At least 8 points is due the Thursday before half term (29th May) and another 8 points for the final Thursday of the summer term (22nd July).
If you have any concerns or questions don't hesitate to contact one of your children's class teachers via the school office, or using the Seesaw App.
Home learning in the event of isolation at home
Each day you should spend 1 hour on Maths, English and a wider curriculum subject.
In addition, spend 10 mins each day on Readiwriter and Times Table Rockstars.
Work your way through the appropriate booklet below on addition and subtraction.
Ask an adult to mark your work using the answer sheets.
For support have a look at the following websites.
Work your way through the lessons, one day at a time.
These lessons are designed for you to work systematically.
Whilst we are all at home, I will be updating this page with different home learning ideas.
Attached is the suggested timetable.
Free apps to download
If you have any favourite learning apps please let me know via Seesaw so we can share with the class.
Google Earth/Expeditions – made by Google, you can travel anywhere in the world and explore in virtual reality. They often have lots of facts linked to the places you travel too as well.
Kahoot – There are a lot of quizzes on all subjects. If you have more than one device, you can do it as a group and challenge each other but you would need a ‘host’ device as well as the ones you are playing the quiz with.
DuoLingo – an interactive way of learning languages. If you have headphones available then children will be able to immerse themselves fully.
Animal Safari AR – you put an animal in front of you in the room! Explore what the animal looks like, and then research habitats/facts online!
