Seesaw

We are delighted to have introduced the Seesaw home learning platform for Years 1 – 6 which will provide the main structure for Saltford pupils' home learning. Please see the Seesaw introduction here which includes a video for parents from Miss Davis. All parents will also have received login and a user guide. Reception families will continue to use Tapestry.

Teachers will provide three tasks each day on Seesaw which will be found on the class page.

Please support us by using these resources rather than phoning the school for individual information. Please also make sure your family stays safe online by checking the advice on our online safety page here.

Assemblies

We know that lots of children really enjoy listening to stories in assembly, so we are aiming to provide the next best thing by regularly updating our Assemblies page with videos, stories and other assembly material from Mr Baker and Rev'd Daile.

Class pages

Class pages contain the term's letter from your class teacher. For KS1 and KS2 each class page will also give a link to a home learning grid that will be updated weekly to help structure the week's learning, and a link to a topic activity grid for term 5. EYFS classes will be uploading details of home learning projects and other useful links and sharing work through Tapestry.

Ascension Day 2020

Every year, all the children in KS2 celebrate Jesus’ Ascension to heaven after his Resurrection with a walk up to the top of Kelston Round Hill. Lots of people, both children and adults, tell us it is one of their favourite days of the year.

Of course, this year most of us are not at school and we are not able to do our usual walk. However, because we are a Church school we thought it was really important to remember this special day in the Christian calendar. So Mrs Emma King, one of our Foundation Governors, did the walk up the hill last week and made two videos for us. In the first film, Emma reads us a version of the Bible story about the Ascension of Jesus and in the second film she helps us to think about the meaning of the story in our lives today, especially at this difficult time for us and our families and friends.

Ascension traditions and art: there are lots of traditions connected with Ascension Day. In Derbyshire, there is a tradition called ‘Well Dressing’. People decorate wells with pictures, often these are stories from the Bible. The pictures are made from thousands of flower petals pressed into frames filled with clay. There is also an Ascension Day well dressing ceremony at the village of Bisley in Gloucestershire, which is about 30 miles from Saltford. Children from the village decorate local wells with flowers and make floral stars which are carried in procession to the well. 

You can see some pictures of these lovely events in Mr Baker's Thinking about Ascension Day guide here.

The story of Jesus’ Ascension to heaven can be a difficult one to imagine or picture in our minds. Artists from different cultures have shown it in different ways. You can see some examples here. What would your picture look like?

Things you could do:

  • How well do you know the route up to the top of Kelston Round Hill that KS2 takes for the Ascension walk? Here are two documents – one is a sketch map of the route and the other document shows eight places we pass on the way. Can you match up the photos with the numbers on the map?
  • Could you draw, paint or find another way to make a picture of Jesus’ Ascension? Take a look at Mr Baker's sheet for some lovely examples.
  • You could use flower petals and other natural things from your garden or nearby paths to make a picture of a Christian symbol, like a dove, a cross or a fish, just like the Derbyshire Well Dressing pictures.
  • Print off and colour in this picture of Jesus’ ascension shown in a stained glass window

If you do any of these things, please take a photo and email it to homelearning@saltfordschool.org.uk. We’d love to see what you do!

Assemblies
Assemblies

Easy to follow assemblies for home learning

Lots of children tell us that they enjoy listening to stories in assembly, for example, when the Open the Book team share them on a Monday afternoon.

Throughout this period of home assisted learning, we will be posting videos from Rev'd Daile (and her special helper, Rev'd Charlie) and the Open the Book team, who have kindly made some recordings especially for us. These assemblies are linked to our school values, and come with a link to the relevant values worksheet containing interesting activity ideas and information.

Compassion

At this time when so many people need help, especially those who are elderly or disabled, it has been wonderful to hear many stories of people offering help in many ways. Sometimes we call people who make a special effort to help others 'Good Samaritans'. This week, Ian Freemantle from the 'Open the Book' Team has recorded an assembly for us in which he shares and thinks about the parable that Jesus told of the Good Samaritan. You can see the video below and think about it using the values sheet on compassion here.

You can view the video in full screen directly on YouTube with this link: https://youtu.be/MxblWatzoAA

Community

In the introductory video, Rev'd Daile explains about 'virtual assemblies' and teaches us some new opening sentences. She also has help from a special friend you will love to meet called Rev'd Charlie! Please see the values sheet on community here.

You can view the video in full screen directly on YouTube with this link: https://youtu.be/YXikUSRS1ws

In the other video, Rev'd Daile introduces the 'Jesus Storybook Bible', which every class has now been given, and she shares a story which links with our current values theme of 'Community'.

It's been great to see some of your other home learning too - you can still send it to us homelearning@saltfordschool.org.uk. This term we've sent you some things to find out about The Victorians - a really interesting topic! We've also sent some other ideas for English and maths. Let us know how you're getting on with it, if you can. We hope you've managed to read some of the books we sent home, too, as well as some of your own. Thinking of you all lots - we and Mrs. Arden miss you all and can't wait to see you all again soon.'

Mr Jenkins, Year 4

A warm welcome to our class RJ page – we hope you find the following information useful

HOME LEARNING

We want to do all we can to support our families and children through this difficult time. Before Easter we sent the children away with the home learning packs including some English and Maths activities. We have now written more resources to help your child structure their home learning. Remember, home learning is not the same as home schooling, and there is no expectation on how much should be completed. Please find a letter from your child’s class teacher here.

From 4th May daily work will be released on Seesaw at 6pm the previous night. Please find your weekly overview grid of what will be released for home learning on 1st June here, in this you will find a range of English and Maths activities, as well as a range of activities for other subjects. Well done for all of the work you have done for your Victorian topic grids.  This term we will be exploring a new geography based topic, "Why are jungles so wet and deserts so dry?".  We are sure you will enjoy this!

The English Mission worksheets can be found here.

A copy of the White Rose worksheets for this week can be found here and the answers here.

Don’t forget that we have Doodle Maths, Tables, English and Spelling to use as well. You will also find in the Home Assisted Learning section of the website lots of additional resources for home learning opportunities. In addition, please do as much reading as you can.

Please remember to share any photos of work you are doing at homelearning@saltfordschool.org.uk

Please see here for a short social story that may help your children understand why school is shut at this challenging time. Do feel free to edit as necessary for your child.

A special message from Mr Jenkins: 'Hello Class RJ. I really hope you and your family are well and keeping safe at home and are enjoying your daily exercise. I am so looking forward to being back with you all as soon as possible and hearing all about all the new things you have learned and what you have been doing whilst not in school. I am really missing you all and am thinking of you all the time. In the meantime, I will leave you with the following joke for now: To stay in shape I have been doing a lot of lunges!!! ................It has been a big step forward for me everyday! Sorry!!'

A special message from Mr Baker:  'Hello Everyone in Class NB! It seems so strange to be away from school for so long at this time of the year. I really missed all the special things we usually do at school at Easter. I hope you were able to celebrate in fun ways with your families at home. Are you still getting through your Easter eggs or are they all devoured by now? We have been so lucky that the weather has been great. I hope you've all managed to get outside and enjoy the sunshine, maybe playing in your garden or going for a local walk. Isn't it fantastic to see all the leaves bursting out on the trees and flowers blooming, showing that summer is not far away? Well done if you've been able to do some of the home learning activities. Some people have sent examples of their work to the school web site and it has been lovely to see those. Keep sending them in! Everyone is doing so well in this difficult situation but I hope it will not be too long before we can all get back to school and have fun learning together again. With best wishes to you and all your families from Mr Baker'

A special message from Mr Boyle:

Happy half term Team AB!

I wish you all a very restful and safe holiday with your families. Thank you for the amazing effort you have put into your home learning on Seesaw. I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing and responding to your brilliant work and creativity. It was a huge learning curve to get used to Seesaw but I think we have all managed to learn together and are having lots of fun using it. Have a good rest now and enjoy this time with your families and doing your hobbies. Whether you are reading magical books, watching exciting movies, listening to music, playing in the garden, getting some exercise, playing games, eating delicious food or just having a rest and a think, please enjoy every moment of this precious time. I look forward to seeing more of your fantastic work next term and to see you all again when it is safe to do so.

My very best wishes ABeings, to you and your families. 

SALUTE!

A special message from Mr Styles: I hope you have had a great first week back to home learning after the Easter holidays. It's been brilliant seeing photos of some of the things that you have been doing at home. I'm sure you are making the most of this extra time and are doing the things that make you and your family happy. This is also the perfect time to try something new - there are thousands of tutorials online for making, cooking, painting, drawing and exercising. Don't forget to send some photos to the home learning email address - I love seeing what you are up to. Stay safe and stay positive and we will see you soon.

A special message from Mr Godwin: Hello Class JG, I hope you are all ok at home and helping out where you can, to make this difficult time as easy as possible for everyone around you. This would have been the end of a very important week, where you would have all taken your SATs and now would be celebrating by enjoying breakfast at school and walking up to the top of Kelston for Ascension Day – what lovely weather we would have had for it! You have all worked so hard in Year 6, and I have been very proud of the way that you have done your best to overcome challenges and work together in order to solve problems. I am sure you would have all done brilliantly in the tests. You will find an optional activity today, based around Ascension Day, which you might want to have a go at. I am really looking forward to seeing the interesting ways you present your work on this. Mrs Godwin and I have been so impressed at the work you have done around the positivity challenge and it has been wonderful to see the videos and things you have made – great job! Enjoy the sunshine this weekend, have a rest and take the time to enjoy the company of your family. Best wishes, Mr G
