Welcome to the Summer Term Oak Class :) 

I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter!

This term we will be continuing our online learning, but it will be slightly different. I will now be uploading videos daily for Maths and Phonics and 3 times a week for topic. 

Unfortunately I have not yet seen everybody online so please make sure you have your SEESAW login (If you still need this please email the school office on: 

office@longshawinfant.blackburn.sch.uk

 

These videos will clearly explain how to complete each task set to make it easier for you and to ensure you can complete your work independently therefore, I expect to see more of you having a go at it! 

Alongside each video there will be a short starter task for you to have a go at, followed by a main task which you will be able to edit and complete on the SEESAW app. 

I will be monitoring who is submitting work, marking your tasks and leaving feedback for you. 

I will see you on Monday to set you your first challenge :)

In the document below there are lots of different activities for you to have a go at over the Easter holidays. You do not have to do them but they are there to keep you busy if you do get bored!

I will not be uploading any work to Seesaw during this time as I would like you all to enjoy your time with your families, but please do upload any pictures/videos of what you have been up to as I would love to see them.

Thank you to the children who have been completing the tasks, I have really enjoyed looking at them  (If you are still having difficulties logging in please email the school office - office@longshawinfant.blackburn.sch.uk  and they will be happy to help) I have sent a video to you all reading the story of 'The Very Busy Day' for you to enjoy.

I have also uploaded a list of useful links below with lots of fun things for you do to. 

 

Have a lovely Easter break, I cannot wait to see your pictures and videos!

I am missing you all so much!

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.

 

Important information

Work will now be uploaded daily for children to complete on Seesaw which can be accessed online via a phone, iPad or computer. It can be found online or can be downloaded as an app to make it easily accessible to the children. Children can then use the useful tools to complete the sheets given through the app or photographs can be taken of their work and then uploaded. This will allow me to look at what they have done and leave comments for the children to read. 

 

If children attended school last week, they will have their log in details in their book bags.  If not please contact the office as soon as possible so that we can provide you with one. 

I will continue to upload work to the class page for anyone who may have issues accessing Seesaw. 

Take care

Miss Hibbert :)

Welcome to Oak class

 

 

 

Hello! I am Miss Hibbert and I am the class teacher in Oak class.

We are very lucky to have Mrs Foy, Mrs Slater and Mrs Mahoney working with us too :)

Please check our class blog for weekly updates of what we have been getting up to in our class. 

 

Our Topic for the this term is:

'On the Farm!'

 

 

 

We will begin by exploring the work of a local artist Shirley MacArthur who uses farm animals as her subjects. The children will study her work carefully and create their own works of art in a similar style, using basic techniques.  

The children will then explore a range of materials and their properties in Science. They will sort items by the materials that they are made out of and their properties. They will then use their knowledge to investigate the most suitable material for the roof of a barn on a farm.

 

Following this, the children will then go on an observational walk around school to identify Human and Physical features using the correct geographical vocabulary. They will compare the similarities and differences between a farm and Blackburn Town Centre.

 

The children will be visiting a farm and exploring 'Was life always like this on a Farm?' They will explore the similarities and differences between modern day farms and farms in the past using the correct historical vocabulary. 

 

 

 

Reading

Please ensure that your child's book bag is in school every day. Please read with your child every night and discuss what they have read. Please note you do not need to read the whole book at once. Once your child has read the whole book they will have the opportunity to change their book the next day. 

Homework

Homework will be given out every Friday reflecting on the children's learning throughout the week. Please ensure that homework is completed and handed back in on Thursday to ensure new homework can be given out on Friday.

 

Physical Education

We have two P.E. sessions a week, including a FUNDA session with a specialist teacher on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school. They will be sent home at the end of every term to be washed. 

 

 Thank you for your continued support with your child's learning. If you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to come and speak to me :)
