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), our foundation governor Mrs King and the Open the Book team, who have all 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.

Keeping our word

Here's an assembly from 2by2 that talks about the importance of keeping our word, illustrated with the story of Noah's ark.

You can view the video in full screen directly on YouTube with this link: https://youtu.be/mDqtBwY1rRQ

How are you feeling?

Here's an invitation from Lesley and Michelle from 2by2 to think about how you and those around you might be feeling at the moment. It includes a Bible story from The Jesus Storybook Bible.

Respect

Our foundation Governor, Mrs King, has made a short video to help us think about respect, for ourselves and for others. You can see the video below and take a look at the values sheet on respect here.

Perseverance

Ian Freemantle from the 'Open the Book' Team has recorded an assembly for us in which he shares and thinks about the parable of the Persistent Widow. You can see the video below and think about it with some help from the values sheet on perseverance here.

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'. 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.

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'.

Miss Mulready, Year 3

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

Outdoor games

This will take place on a Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning in Term 1.  Please ensure your child wears the correct kit to school on these days: plain red T shirt, shorts/jogging bottoms and trainers.  As the weather gets colder they may also need a plain hooded top.

Indoor PE 

At the current time there will be no indoor PE sessions.

Swimming

There will be no swimming at the current time.

Topics – Autumn term 2020

This term the main topic we will be studying is a Geography-based one on Florida - Beyond the Magic Kingdom.

Later in the term we will start another History topic on "The Stone Age to the Iron Age."

Our Science topics will be Rocks (including fossils) and Soils.

As ever, we welcome any resources you may have which could help with these topics. Please make sure that anything sent into school is clearly named, so that it can be returned to you safely.

Homework

Reading: just a reminder that the children are expected to read every day with an adult and independently as much as possible. Although we encourage the children to keep a record of their own reading, it is very useful if you could sign their record books regularly. (Children get house points in class for regular reading at home.) 

We understand that after the long summer break you will be anxious to support your child’s reading development as soon as possible and we actively encourage daily reading with your child. As we get to know your child in the first few weeks we will be assessing their reading level and making any adjustment to reading colours that are required. Your support and patience at this time is appreciated. In the meantime, please continue to read with your child daily, ensuring you sign their record clearly. The children’s reading records are checked regularly so this is another good way of communicating any messages to your child’s teacher.  We are sure you can appreciate that the books from school will need to be quarantined after use.  For this reason, each year group will have a designated day in which to bring in their completed reading books.  For Year 3 this will be a Wednesday and for Year 4 this will be a Monday.  There will be a box in each classroom for this.  In addition to this they will then be issued with new reading books on a Thursday for Year 3 and a Tuesday for Year 4.  If your child should complete their books before the changeover day, please feel free to supplement with home books and magazines or extra spelling practice/Doodle English.

For more information about activities to support reading and recommended books, please see our Reading Room page here.

Spellings: these will be sent home on Tuesday to be tested the following Tuesday. We are following the scheme "No Nonsense Spellings". Children should use the different approaches taught in class (and stuck in the front of their books) to practise their words each week, and also put them into sentences to secure meaning.  Please see our Spelling Bee Information here.

Maths:  Every week the children are expected to spend 3 lots of 10 mins on DoodleMaths , earning at least 15 stars. This is checked every Monday.

Times tables will be set and tested on Wednesdays. There are lots of fun times tables games online to help with these:

https://ttrockstars.com/login/10562  The children will know their logins for this fantastic website, which they use regularly in school.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise/game/ma13tabl-game-tables-grid-find

YouTube has useful videos, including songs for times tables.

PE will be held on Tuesdays and Fridays so please make sure the children come to school wearing appropriate clothing and trainers for these days. Please ensure all items are named.  We will also be doing daily physical activity with Move a Mile, Go Noodle and skipping.

Swimming

Unfortunately we are currently unable to use the pool due to the Covid guidelines. 

Homework

Reading. We encourage the children to read their book at home every day for a minimum of 20 minutes. Even though the children are older and may need less support with actually reading the words, they still need to discuss their reading with an adult, talking about characters, plot and any tricky vocabulary.

Spellings: these will be sent home on Mondays to be tested the following Monday.

Children should use the ‘Look, Cover, Write, Check’ approach to practising the words, and complete he accompanying activity sheet. 

English homework: this will be set on a Thursday via Seesaw and will be due for the following Thursday.

Maths homework is on Doodlemaths. The expectation is that your child achieves 30 doodle stars. Times tables and TT Rock Stars will be tested regularly and the children should practise at home.

Topic: this term the main topic the children will be studying  in history is WW2 - The Blitz and the topic is Climate Change in geography.

Our new Science topic will be Earth and Space.

As ever, we welcome any resources you may have that could help with these topics. Please make sure that anything sent into school is clearly named, so that it can be returned to you safely.

The children have their own login details for TT Rock stars times tables so please ensure your child practises regularly on it and takes part in the inter-class competitions that we have.

Mr Styles, Year 6

Welcome to class NS

Topics

This term we will be starting a topic on World War II - The Blitz. In Science we will be learning about Electricity and Separating Materials.

PE

Appropriate kit should be worn in to school for each PE session. This is: a plain red T shirt, shorts/jogging bottoms, trainers and a plain hooded top. As the weather gets colder it is essential that each child has warmer clothing with them, including hats and gloves, as all PE will take place outside.
Our PE slots for terms 1 and 2 are Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure children wear their outdoor kit on these days. 

Homework

The children have several homework activities given over the course of the week.

Reading: we encourage the children to read their book at home for a minimum of 20 minutes each day. Even though the children are older and may need less support with actually reading the words, they still need to discuss their reading with an adult, talking about characters, plot and any tricky vocabulary. Although we encourage the children to keep a record of their own reading, it is very useful if you could sign their record books regularly. (Children get house points in class for regular reading at home.) 

For more information about activities to support reading and recommended books, please see our Reading Room page here.

Spellings are given each Monday for a test on the following Monday, accompanied by a short activity based on a spelling pattern or rule studied in class. We are following the scheme "No Nonsense Spellings". Children should use the different approaches taught in class to practise their words each week.

Maths homework is given once a week on Tuesday to be handed in on the following Monday. Your child has also been given a log in for Doodle Maths and we would encourage them to use this where possible. We also encourage the children to use TT Rockstars to help the children with their multiplication tables.

English homework is given out on Thursday to be handed in on the following Wednesday. 

Science homework will be given out weekly on Fridays from after Christmas.
