Weekly update Year 4/5 team: 24th June 2022
Learning this week:
In history, the children have been learning about how the government kept people safe during the Blitz, discussing different types of shelters and the process of evacuation. During our science lesson this week, the children really enjoyed experimenting with making series circuits containing a variety of switches made from paper clips and split pins.
All children have taken a series of maths assessments this week – they have focused really well given the warm and humid conditions – well done to everyone. As it was so hot at lunchtimes the children were able to play in the cool of the forest area – we are so lucky to have this space!
We wish you all a great weekend. Hopefully the sunshine sticks around a little longer!
Each child has now been allocated a house team and each team has a colour. Your child's teacher will be hopefully have contacted you to let you know which colour team your child is in. If possible, we would love your child to wear the correct coloured t-shirt for sports day.
Please put spare trainers in your child’s bag. In the event of rain, wet play and PE are result in wet, damp shoes. Thank you.
Please remember to read the Head teacher’s letter for this week.
Please can your child read 5 times a week, preferably out loud. They have a reading log which will be checked every Friday morning. Please ensure their reading book comes in every day.
TTRS is up and running. We are asking everyone to complete about 30 minutes a week please. This is best split into 3, 10 minute sessions. Once the garage and soundcheck tasks are complete, children can choose what they play on there. Each child should have their tables set on the garage tasks, which enables them to practise comfortably. The other games are all tables.
Teachers will check the online logs every Friday. Please let your class teacher know if there is a problem.
Children should record spelling practice in their purple homework books. This will be checked every Friday.
Work for Day 1 of isolation
This work is for the first day of absence. Please ensure this is completed. Your class teacher will be in contact about further work.
Instructions for Google Classroom (in the event of remote learning)
Go to ‘Google Classroom’ and login.
Every child’s login starts with a number.
Y4 -your child’s number is 18
Y5 – your child’s number is 17
This is followed by their name and first letter of their surname and then everyone has the same end part. For example:
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 in school.
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.
