Instructions for how to log in to ‘Google Classroom’:

Go to ‘Google Classroom’ and login. 

Every child’s login starts with a number. Your child’s number is 20.

This is followed by their name and first letter of their surname and then everyone has the same end part. For example:

16johns@stratton.cornwall.sch.uk

Some pupils do have a slight variation – most of the pupils do know their log ins.

Password: Stratton (capital S)

IMPORTANT - The account we are using is separate from ANY home google accounts. You will need to ‘add an account’ on your home login page and put in your child’s login if you haven’t already done so.  They will then see their classroom they belong to (Willow or Hazel)

IMPORTANT – the stream (the first option at the top of the screen) is for education messages only - if a child is posting inappropriate chat on there, they will be muted and not allowed to put anything on there. 

NB:  You are only allowed to log on to your own account. 

 

Hazel and Willow Weekly Update – Thursday 23rd June 2022

Dates for your diary:

Friday 24th June – INSET Day

Monday 27th June – INSET Day

Tuesday 28th June – Healthy relationships workshop (Willow class)

Wednesday 29th June - Healthy relationships workshop (Hazel class)

Monday 4th July (AM) – Sports Day for Key Stage One

 

English: This week, the children have written a story set in another country. They have also read and started to learn the story of ‘Lila and the Secret of Rain’. The children who are learning on the Read Write Inc. programme have been continuing to practise their sounds and apply their knowledge to a range of reading and writing tasks.

 

Maths: In maths, the children have continued with their learning on time by identifying the number of minutes in an hour and hours in a day, found durations of time and compared them.

 

STEM Visit: This week, we had a visit from Cognition Learning to support our DT learning about freestanding structures. The workshop involved the children making an earthquake simulator out of Lego and then using it to test the stability of 3 different Lego buildings that they had created. All of the children really engaged with the activity and thoroughly enjoyed the session. Photos from each class’s workshop will soon be available below.

Topic: In geography, the children completed and labelled a map of the world’s oceans.

 

Warmer weather: Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school that they can access during the day during this warm spell.

 

Times tables homework – We have recently started a weekly times table test in school to check that the children have secured the tables they need to know by the end of Year 2. These are the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Children will be set the times table(s) they need to practise to support them with learning these on Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS). If your child does not have access to TTRS, then they need to be practising their tables in a different way. Next year, the children will move on to learning more times tables.

 

Books to share: Please can these children bring in their favourite book to share with the class next week:

Willow Class: Charlie W and Charlie Y

Hazel Class: None this week.

 

Homework:

Maths – 5 ‘garage’ sessions on TTRS.

Reading – Five times a week at home. Reading completed in school does not count towards the five times.

Spelling – Please practise spelling 5 of the Common Exception Words at the back of your child’s purple homework book across the week. Below, you can find a spelling menu which has suggestions of spelling activities you may wish to use with your child.

Thank you,

 

Mrs Loudwill, Mrs Sayers and Miss Smith
