TT Rockstars – Chaffinches

Please look at the link below for help with using TT Rockstars at home. Your child has their username and password in their reading record. I’ve set the tables to concentrate on the 2, 5 and 10 times tables for the next few weeks. Please let me know if you’re having any problems getting on.

Save the planet – Scrap challenge!

What a brilliant start to year 2 we have had! I am so proud of how well the children have settled into Chaffinches and how hard they have been working. We had our Wow day on Wednesday to launch our topic for this half term. We will be learning all about how we can ‘Save the planet’ and looking at pesky plastics. As part of our wow day we decorated some CD fish and I set the children a scrap challenge to build something out of items from the scrap store play pod. We ended up with three cars and a hospital. Look at the pictures to see if you can spot which are which.

A future famous author in our class!

A huge congratulations to Jessica for winning a writing competition last week. Jess entered a short story about a cat and a dog into The Thornbury Animal Sanctuary competition and found out that she was a winner. Her story is going to be published in a book by the charity. I’m sure that Jess will share her story with you all in September.

Well done Jess!

Ospreys Summer Term week 12

It’s your last week of officially being a Year 4! You’ve all worked incredibly hard during this really difficult time and I hope that you have a wonderful summer and come back refreshed and ready to start the new school year with Mrs Bower.

It’s sports day today so don’t forget to join in and send us your results and pictures.

The National Oak Academy isn’t on this week so I’m going to suggest having a go at the BBC Bitesize work. In maths you’ll be looking at symmetry. English is revising adverbs and fronted adverbials. This will be really useful for Year 5.

Please continue with TT Rockstars and Active Learn and remember to read every day.

I know that you’ll all be wanting a very well deserved break over the summer holidays but please remember to read regularly, practise your spellings and keep going on TT Rockstars as much as you can. These three things will really give you a head start in Year 5.

Don’t forget to email me with anything you’ve been up to.

Thank you for a brilliant year. Have a lovely summer and I’ll see you all in September.

Take care,

Mrs Bratt

Summer term week 11

Good morning Ospreys,

I hope you’re all well and keeping busy. I’m really sad that I’m not going to be seeing you all again before September. Please keep emailing me and sending what you’ve been up to and any work.

It’s week 11 on Oak Academy. The English is looking at poetry. I’d love to read some finished poems so please remember to email any that you’ve complete. This weeks Maths is patterns and problem solving. A few people have said that they are using BBC Bitesize instead of Oak Academy, that’s completely fine.

I’ve put a link below for a follow along lesson on you tube of how to draw a mountain landscape.

As always, please keep reading, I’ve put a couple of new things on Active Learn and keep going with TT Rockstars.

I hope you all have a great week and I’ll speak to you soon.

Mrs Bratt

Summer term week 10

Good afternoon Ospreys,

I hope that you’re all keeping well. I have phoned round and managed to speak to most of you. It was really lovely chatting to you and getting to know what you’ve been up to. There are a couple of people who I tried phoning a few times and didn’t get through; please contact me if there’s anything that you’re concerned with or if you’d like to talk to me.

It’s week 10 on Oak Academy.

English this week is looking at diary entries and you’ll be writing your own entry by the end of the week. I’d love to read some of them once you’ve finished.

Maths is looking at number systems you already know and looking for patterns.

There are some great music lessons available too. I’ll put the link below.

Please continue with the Active Learn things and TT Rockstars. It sounds like lots of you are really nailing your times tables which is excellent! Keep it up.

Please remember to read every day. Let me know which books you’ve been reading and if you’d like any recommendations.

Take care and I’ll be in touch again next week.
