Week 3 - 06.03.20
Hello everybody, I hope you're all keeping well.
I have uploaded an overview of activities for the week ahead, as well as some separate subject specific sheets/activities which are referred to in the overview.
Again, this is just a guide, I don't expect absolutely everything to be completed. Just do what you can.
Have a great week and happy Easter to you all - have a top one! Have fun, keep smiling and take it easy.
Hi all. I hope you are all well and have successfully navigated yourselves through this first week of lockdown.
Upon reflection, I have just uploaded a slightly more structured timetable for weeks 1 (last week) and 2 (this week) of school closure. I realised that all of the other teachers/year groups are uploading work week by week, whereas I had just launched a boat load of activities onto a general overview to cover the first 4 weeks or so.
In uploading this new revised timetable for the first two weeks, I do not mean to undermine the work that may have already taken place from the initial general overview of activities that I uploaded last week. I just thought that moving to a week by week structure like all the other classes would be less overwhelming and more helpful in the long run and the further/longer we go into school closure (and to be fair, I didn't want to get into trouble for doing it differently to everyone else!!!).
If you have already completed activities from the initial general overview, that are not on this revised timetable, do not worry at all. If you have developed your own timetable/routine for tackling the activities from the general overview, then please do carry on doing what you are doing.
For the first few weeks, these revised timetables will repeat activities from the initial general overview, merely providing a more rigid structure for everybody to follow going forward. Activities that have not been included in this new timetable will be included in future timetables in the coming weeks. So all of the activities from the initial general overview will be covered at some point anyway. Like I say, the aim of moving to this week by week structure is to hopefully take some pressure off you all by setting a clearer structure of activities for everyone to follow.
This timetable and all future timetables are just guides. I am very aware that there is a lot going on at the moment with so much to process and these are very strange times.
Just do what you can, but don't feel you have to spend your days getting the children to work work work! If you get all of the activities completed, that's brilliant. If you get two of the activities completed, that's brilliant.
Just enjoy the extra time that you're all getting to spend together, make sure you get plenty of relaxing done, train the kids to clean the house so you can put your feet up and if a bit of this work gets done along the way, then happy days!
Take it easy, please pass my best on to all of the children and stay safe.
Hi everybody. Just a quick one to let you know that general activities, including websites that we frequently use, and other subject specific tasks for you to try at home, can be found by clicking on the Learning zone tab above. Take care.
Mr. Webb :)
Hi everybody! I hope you are all well.
I have uploaded the general overview of activities for the first few weeks of school closure, as well as the additional information around the Christopher Columbus information text topic.
As you know, you have received paper copies for specific tasks outlined in the overview.
I will use this webpage to upload new tasks and activities for the children in the coming weeks.
Two thing's that I didn't mention on the overview are:
1. Joe Wicks will be leading a live PE lesson every weekday from 9:00am, on his YouTube channel.
2. Today I provided the children with their individual usernames and login details for the Times Tables Rockstars website. This is a great and engaging website that the children can use for practicing the 2, 5 and 10 x-tables and their inverse division facts.
In the meantime, take care, stay healthy, keep smiling and try to enjoy a decent little bit of chill out time too!
