Welcome to Maple Class!

 

Corona Virus – Home Learning for children who are self-isolating.

 

Please see the overview below. These are some suggestions to support the children’s learning and to enable them to complete work at home over the coming weeks. We are committed to ensuring that your child is still learning as much as possible.

Teachers will upload additional activities, matched to the Maths and English learning being done in school, on to each class page on a daily basis. Children should complete these activities in their homework book or on paper.

Tasks will also be set by teachers on SEESAW and Purple Mash, and logins for these websites will be sent home on Wednesday evening with the children who are still in school along with simple guidance for using them. Families who are already self-isolating should email the school office for personal login details. Teachers will monitor who has accessed the learning from home.

Please contact us by email if you require any further information.

During the holidays, I will not be uploading any new learning tasks, I want you to have lots of fun with your families! However, there are two learning grids above that have lots of activities, in case you need some ideas for how to keep busy and active during the next two weeks.

 

Please remember, all the activities and the PE Easter competition are all uploaded onto Seesaw, which can be accessed at: https://web.seesaw.me/

Our next exciting topic:

Our World Matters

 

During this exciting topic, we will be asking the question:

What is happening in our world today?

 

We will take the children on an adventure around the world to see how climate change is affecting our planet. From the melting polar ice caps all the way to diminishing rain forests and polluted seas. We will be generating questions about global warming and exploring ideas around greenhouse gasses. The focus will be on the science behind it and what we can all do to have a positive impact on the environment.

 

As part of this exciting topic, we will learn the names of the world's continents and oceans. We will also explore the wildlife, climate and culture of each continent to develop our understanding of our world.

As part of our Design and Technology project, the children will be focusing on plastic pollution and the children will be creating a large-scale planter made from just recycled materials.  

 

I wonder what ideas we will have for how we can preserve our environment?

 

Please check the class blog, weekly, for updates from the children on what they have been learning that week.

 

Also, if you haven't already, please follow us on Twitter @longshawinfants to keep up with all the exciting things happening at school.

 

Reading books

It is important that your child's book bag is in school every day. Please read with your child every night and discuss what you have read. You do not need to read the whole book at once. 

 

Homework

Homework will be given out every Friday reflecting the children's learning that week. Please ensure homework is back in school by Thursday to ensure homework can be issued the following Friday.

 

Clothing

Please make sure that every piece of clothing that comes into school has your child's name on it so that if it does get lost or misplaced it can be easily returned. 

 

P.E 

We have two P.E sessions every week, including a specialist FUNDA session. Please make sure your child has their P.E kits in school throughout the term. 

 

 Thank you!

 

 

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to speak to me after school. 

 

Thank you for your continued support, 

 

Mrs Thomas
