Good morning Exeter and London class!

Today is our final lesson writing a newspaper report on the Battle of Britain. Using your plan and the success criteria as a guide, please write your newspaper report. Remember to use lines to hook the reader’s attention!

For maths today, you have some arithmetic questions. I would like you to have a go at the calculations, then mark against the answers. Remember, this is not about how many answers you got right, but about practising different arithmetic skills and identifying your mistakes. If you did make a mistake, please spend time looking at the answer and thinking about how you work that question out.

This afternoon, you have a French activity. Please research Christmas traditions in the French culture. Is there anything they do that is similar? Do they have any different traditions? It is up to you how you present this information. You could write it in a list, create a poster or record a video of you explaining what Christmas is like in France.

I have spoken to our IT team and an email address for each of the classes has now been set up. Please share your work with exeter@churchfield.bwmat.org or london@churchfield.bwmat.org or continue to send work to me through Famly.

I look forward to seeing your work today.

Good morning Exeter and London class!

Yesterday, we introduced the Battle of Britain. Today in English, you will need to read the non-fiction text about the Battle of Britain and answer questions about this. The first questions are retrieval questions, which means the answers are in the text, and the last questions are sequencing questions. If you normally work with an adult in the classroom, please look at the document labelled Miss T or Ms S' group. 

In maths you will have different tasks depending on whose class you are in.

If you are in Ms Cox’s or Ms Sturmey’s maths group, you will need to complete a task on equivalent lengths, converting millimetres into centimetres. A video to help you can be found here: https://vimeo.com/467395290

If you are in Miss Tumelty’s maths group, you will be carrying on looking at prime numbers. A video to explain can be found here:

https://vimeo.com/469694974

If you are in Mrs Clements’ maths group, you will be working on simplifying fractions today. A video to help you can be found here: https://vimeo.com/467396285

If you normally work in the Hive, you should have received your work separately.

You do not need to print these documents. If it is easier, answers can be written on paper and photographed, or typed and emailed in to school.

This afternoon, a science activity has been set for you on Purple Mash, looking at components and symbols and how a bulb works in a circuit. 

I will be available on Famly during the school day to receive work and answer any questions you have.

Home Learning Friday 16th July

PE & FOREST SCHOOL

Our timetable has changed slightly, and is:

Monday - Forest School (old clothes required, waterproof coat, hat and suntan lotion - children can put this on themselves)

Tuesday - PE (summer PE required)

Friday - Swimming (swimming costume and towel - goggles if needed, long hair tied up)

Curriculum Map - Summer Half Term 1 2021

What a fantastic week we've had! Here are some pictures from our science day where we chose how to develop our knowledge of creatures and their habitats.

Welcome back after October half term!

 

This half term our Learning Quest is DO MY DECISIONS MATTER. It is a geographical and conservational theme, investigating how our decisions can affect the environment.

 

PE for Sycamore class will be with the PE coach on Tuesday afternoons: 10.11.20, 24.11.20 and 8.12.20 . We will also continue to do PE every Wednesday afternoon, so all pupils will need to wear PE kit on alternate Tuesday and every Wednesday. 

Star of the week. 

 

Matthew White

I am very proud of the resilience Matthew has shown on his journey to becoming a more independent learner. Well done Matthew you should also be proud of all the hard work you have done since returning to school.

Week beginning 28th of September 2020.

This week children will need to wear their school uniform every day but Wednesday. On Wednesday please can children come to school in their sports kits? 

 

Don't forget to book your appointments for parents evening on the 30th of September and 1st of October. I look forward to speaking with you then. 

Egyptology Day

 

Today Sycamore and Walnut class had an amazing day that allowed us to immerse ourselves into learning creatively about Ancient Egypt.

We stared the day in the hall learning how long ago and for how long the Ancient Egyptians ruled for. Then we learned all about hieroglyphics and even practiced writing our own. After a morning break we learned all about numbers and drew a scarab beetle. This afternoon we listened to a story about key Ancient Egyptian Pharos and monsters. Ending the day by looking at real artefacts.

Week 2

 

So we have nearly come to the end of week two and are all looking forward to week three!

 

This week we have been working hard in writing to finish our non-chronological reports on polar bears and have been brushing up our knowledge of number and place value in maths.

In the afternoon we have had a geography focus, learning about the countries polar bears live in. We have also produced some amazing pictures of polar bears in art. 

 

Next week we will be starting our Egyptian learning quest and we are all excited about the Egyptology day on Wednesday (see below). 

 

Due to the Egyptology day children will not need to wear their sports kits on Wednesday, and we look forward to seeing their costumes instead.

 

It is Sycamores turn for Forest school on Tuesday so children will need to come to school in the Forest school clothes.

 

I hope you have an enjoyable weekend.

 

Mrs Knight

Star of the week!

 

Well done to Tyler De-La-Hay

Tyler has persevered even when he has found things tricky.

Year 4 & 5 Egyptian Day

 

As part of our Ancient Egyptians topic next half term, we have planned a whole themed day on the 23rd September for Walnut and Sycamore classes and the 25th September for Rowan and Poplar classes.

 

We have secured the Egyptology Company, who are leading the activities, and this should be an amazing experience for the children. The cost of the day will be £4.00 per child, and we are excited that we will be learning about hieroglyphics, ancient numeracy, mythology and mummies. 

 

To make the day even more fun, we would like all children to dress up as Ancient Egyptians on the day of their workshop. We do not want to make this tricky, so below are some simple examples of how to organise costumes.

 

Any questions, please see the class teacher.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mrs Sturmey, Mrs Knight, Mr Bromige and Miss Cox

Year 4 / 5 Teachers

 

 

Welcome to Sycamore class page.

 

Notices:

Children will need to wear their sports kits to school every Wednesday. Unfortunately children are not allowed to wear hoodies but can wear a school (green) jumper or cardigan to keep them warm and jogging bottoms. 

 

Children will also need to wear their forest school kit every other Tuesday. This week is NOT a forest school week and children should wear their normal uniform to school. 

 

Children must wear black school shoes and not trainers to school on other days. If children come to school in trainers we will provide them with black daps for the day. 

 

Reading records and books were sent home with children on Friday. We read in school every day and therefore need both to come in with your children in the morning.
