We have continued to enjoy learning lots about Ancient Egypt this week. We have found out about the ancient Egyptian social structure and daily lives. We have also been learning about the explorations and discoveries of Dr Joann Fletcher – an Egyptologist.

In maths, we have continued to learn about perimeter and area of rectilinear shapes! During our English lessons, we have been learning about the features and structure of diary writing. During our science lesson this week, the children conducted an investigation into which solids will dissolve in water. Ask your child what they found out.

We have also been enjoying using djembe drums in music and the children have been learning about rhythm and pulse, as well as how different areas of the drum will produce different sounds.

Important messages/information:

None this week

Please remember to read the Head teacher’s letter for this week.

Homework

Reading: 

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. 

Maths:

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.

Spellings homework:

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.

 

  • Reading
  • Spellings
  • TTRS
  • Physical activity (eg Joe Wicks/cosmic yoga)

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:

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 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.
