Coronavirus Updates

We have added a new HOME LEARNING tab to the main menu. Everything that we upload will also appear on the home page, but this tab organises everything by year group. Don’t forget to keep checking the “Ideas for Everyone” page too – there will be plenty of good suggestions appearing on there. Mrs Baird also has some tricks up her sleeve to support our health and wellbeing…

Wrens are ‘Mad About Minibeasts’

Good morning everyone,

I do hope you are all well, and are still enjoying using Active Learn and the School Jam maths app. Don’t forget to use the National Oak too.

It’s great to receive photos of you all busy learning at home. It really does make us smile, so keep up the great work everyone, and keep those photos coming!

In school we are planning our learning around the book ‘Mad About Minibeasts’.

Here are a few of things which we have been doing. I thought you also might like to have a go at these at home.

We are learning to sing this song…..

We are then going to try and make a little dance up to go with it. Watch this space!

We have also been making these minibeasts too.

We used paper plates, card and felt pens for the caterpillar.

We used card and felt pens for the snails.

We are also going to be painting our own ladybird pebbles tomorrow (Friday).

We played a game called ‘What am I? too. Why not try and play along at home? Here is the link for that.

We then chose a minibeast and tried writing some facts about it. Then we played our own game of guess the minibeast!

You could go on a minibeast hunt too.

I have been using this website to get materials to support our learning about ‘Minibeasts’

We will keep sharing some of the things we have been doing at school on here. Take care everyone, and I will be in touch again soon x

Summer Term – Week beginning 3rd June

Good morning everyone!

 

I hope you had a lovely half term and enjoyed the beautiful weather. You will all have seen the letter about using Oak Academy. I’m looking forward to seeing your writing. Please email me if you have any problems navigating or working this.

There are still many spelling and maths challenges on Active Learn and please keep practising your times tables on TT Rockstars.

I’d love to hear about any books you’re reading and anything else you’ve been up to.

Take care

Mrs Bower

Summer term 2 – week 1

Hi to all Chaffinches!

I hope you’ve had a lovely half-term break in the glorious sunshine.   I’m missing you all, but know you are working hard and will have lots of work to show me when I see you soon!

As well as using Active Learn for reading and GPS work, I would like you to use the National Oak Academy for your learning from now on. Please email me if you have any queries or questions about this.

Please keep practising your times tables on TT Rockstars or sing along your times tables with the songs on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9C4EN7mFHCk   and you’ll see others like this for you to enjoy and to learn your times tables at the same time; this will help you become more confident.

Well done to those who have been working through the challenges on Active Learn.  I’ve noticed that there are a number of children who haven’t logged onto the challenges, so please remember that this is a really useful resource for you to use to develop your reading, grammar and spelling skills.

Thank you so much for all of the wonderful sunflower pictures – please enjoy looking at them on this page.  It’s still not too late to send any others in to me.

As always, I’d love to hear from you about what you’ve been up to so please don’t hesitate to email me. Missing you all!

Keep in touch,

 

Mrs Adams

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 3rd June

Good Morning, Snowies!

I hope you are all keeping safe and well.

As you will know, some of the Y6 children returned to school on Monday; we’re all missing the rest of you!

We have started to talk about some ideas for putting a leavers’ assembly online. I really want you all to be involved – I’ll be in touch soon with some suggestions but if you have any ideas, please let me know.

You will all have seen the letter about using Oak Academy. I’m looking forward to seeing your writing. Some of the English lessons from previous weeks have been based around ‘Skellig’,  so you would be welcome to have a go at those if you would prefer. Also, there are lots of history lessons linked to World War I and World War II that you might find interesting.

There’s still plenty to do on Active Learn and Rising Stars if you would like some extra practice.

If you are feeling creative, there is a fantastic looking writing competition here:

For our designers, why not have a go at this:

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Welcome Back to Children Returning 1st June

If your child is returning to school on the 1st of June, please share this short video to help them prepare for coming back. Many thanks.

Are you a Times Tables Rockstar Record Breaker?

I know that we have lots of children who are incredibly fast at playing Times Tables Rockstars, but are any of you Record Breakers?

I genuinely believe that someone from Anston Greenlands stands a good chance of getting a World Record.

Have a look at the instructions below and good luck!

Summer term week 5

Good morning Ospreys,

I hope you’re all well and enjoying the warm weather.

I’ve added a few extra activities onto Active Learn for you to try. There are spelling and grammar activities as well as a maths challenge and please remember to use the reading ‘Bug Club’ section too.

Below is a link to a maths challenge for you to have a go at.

Below is a link to a sequence of science lessons on optics, mirrors and lights for you to have a go at.

To keep active, why not have a go at a twist on the classic hopscotch game and do this hands and feet version. You’ll need balance and coordination. Draw round your hands and feet on paper or do it with chalks outside.

Take care and I’ll be in touch again soon.
