HOMEWORK: We have been pleased with the efforts made with homework this term and we hope it has been a positive experience at home.
Please remember that if your child cannot do the maths task set after twenty minutes then they should not persevere- the maths is a summary of what we have been learning in school that week and whilst all the children should be able to manage it, they may find that at home they cannot remember how to do it. If this is the case then please write a short note on the task and we can address it the following week.
Thank you for your support with the tasks-we do remind the children it is their homework and not yours!
Eagle Owls have been working incredibly hard over the last six weeks and they are taking ownership of their learning and making positive strides forward. We are thrilled with their efforts and they should be very pleased with themselves.
As the end of term approaches the children's energies are beginning to flag and this had resulted in a lack of empathy towards each other during playtimes. For the rest of this week and next week our class focus is going to be directed towards being kind to each other . We will endeavour to have class talks and lessons, helping the children to manage their feelings in order to make positive choices and find strategies to help them deal with the minor conflicts that can occur during playtimes.
We hope this will help to boost self esteem all round and promote a greater class cohesion and team spirit.
Your children deserve a well earned rest over the break-they have excelled themselves and adapted well to the constraints we have to work under.
Learning at home
Please find below the documents and web links for learning at home in case your child is away from school for any prolonged period of time. You will see the current homework grid, topic web, weekly spellings sheets (your child will know their group), Active Learn website link (maths games) and Times Table Rockstars link for tables practise. Please also make sure that your child is reading regularly while they are at home, at least half an hour daily. Have a look at the Oxford Owl web link for free e-books and lots of book suggestions and tips for reluctant readers.
Homework is back...!
Homework is sent home on Thursdays and should be be returned by Tuesday of the following week.
Your child will be bringing home a plastic folder containing a maths task that supports their learning for the week. On the class page below, you will find their spellings (your child will know their spelling group) and they need to select one task from the topic web. In addition to this, they have an online maths activity on Active Learn that they have been told about. Please note that the Active Learn task will only work on a desk top or laptop computer and not a tablet. Do not worry if your child is not able to do this extra activity. They can also continue to practise their tables using Times Tables Rock Stars. It is hoped that the children will be able to work independently but if they experience any difficulty do let us know via a short message on the returned sheet.
We hope the homework tasks remain fun and challenging.
.... and we're off!
Welcome back to your new Eagle Owl class (and web page!) We are so excited to have all of you back together in school. We hope you have had a restful summer with your families and are raring to go with your learning. Important points to note this term:
Just like last year, Mrs Pinto will work on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Wood will be in the classroom Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact one of us.
We look forward to an inspiring term full of fun, laughter and challenging learning!
Sally Pietropinto and Helen Wood
