Week 11

Hello everyone! 

This week we will be using the talk for writing booklet and book talking tasks to build our english skills. We are looking at angles of turning and understanding clockwise and anticlockwise in Maths and planning a trip around the world . There are some more creative tasks linked to our English work book to be tried in the afternoons!

This week's work.

We will do a class Zoom call at 11, all together! Please make sure you are up to date on the chapters and do your best to attend as we will be doing a quick book quiz and setting our writing task for Friday after doing some book talk all together. Please try and sit somewhere quiet so we don't interupt one another with any extra noise! 

Again, I will be in school Monday - Thursday supporting the keyworkers so I will try my best to respond to emails but it will be difficult. I have spent the weekend catching up with everyones work and I've been so impressed!

If you do have questions, send me an email and I will do my best to reply as quickly as I can to you.

Up until now I haven't set a timetable for the work, letting people have some flexibility to complete tasks in the order they choose, but if your child is returning to school in the keyworker class part time please try and follow the timetable to allow an easier teaching day within the keyworker class as at times there will be children from years 1-6. Thank you.

English

This week we will be using the talk for writing booklet created by Pie Corbett (The voice of radioblogging!) as Radioblogging has now finished. We will use it across the week for different activities. You can use the booklet by printing it off or completing the majority of the tasks within your work books or on plain paper. I recomend printing at least the story pages off as they are needed daily and it is easier to make notes on a paper copy. Some of the creative tasks will be assigned for afternoons and we will be doing a task together on Zoom on Friday.
