Here we are in the second week of term five. I am in school for the first two days of this week but will try to respond to all of your messages and portfolio uploads. I was really impressed with all of your work last week and I’m looking forward to seeing even more over the next few days.
⦿ A different base for learning for each day numbered 6 to 10 (if you missed any from last week you can certainly go back and have a look). Let me know which you enjoy and which you might find trickier.
⦿ Linked maths pages and reading. These are just below the pieces and are also numbered 6 to 10 to link. I hope you enjoy the book. It’s one of my favourites.
⦿ Spellings for the week: Words with a long /e/ sound spelt ‘ie’ or ‘ei’ after c (and exceptions)
⦿ A link to a Talk for writing file from Pie Corbett. There are lots of different ideas in there for writing.
⦿ A link to The BBC’s daily learning
⦿ A message from Mr Mullen about a Sumdog competition
If you haven’t yet, sign up to ClassDojo so you can upload to your portfolio.
This is one of my favourite books. It does an excellent job at explaining some complicated things in simple words. In fact it only uses the 1000 (ten hundred) most commonly used words. I’ve added pages to the additional learning and revision and will use this with some of your learning this week. I hope you enjoy it.
I’ve also included a link to the book Wonder by R J Palacio. It would be great to either begin to read, if you have it, or listen to the book this week and you can discuss it on ClassDojo this week.
Our latest Bristol wide Sumdog maths competition starts today, Friday 24th April. The competition runs through to 8pm on Thursday 30th April.
As you will know, Sumdog maths is a fun online way of improving maths fluency. Visit:-
The school code is olor
The challenge is to complete 1000 questions. Children should take their time to answer carefully - it is one point for each correct answer. The questions are adapted to each child’s level, so it’s important children complete the questions independently.
Next Friday, I will announce the winning class and the top individual pupils.
Everyone from Years 2 to 6 have usernames and passwords. If your child has forgotten their username and password, email me and I will send this to you.
I hope this will be an enjoyable mathematical activity – especially within our current context.
Remember to do what you can and keep yourself busy. I know there is a lot here, but remember, you don’t have to complete all of it but choose from the menu the things you like.
I look forward to hearing from you and seeing everything you get up to this week.
