Learning this week:
We have been busy, busy, busy this week! The children have been considering why people explore this week in our topic lessons. They all have ambitions to explore some exciting places in the world – ask you child where they would like to go! We have been reading and studying the structure of biographies in writing, and continue to practise common exception words in spelling lessons.
In maths, we have been learning about 4 and 5 digit numbers, and how to round them to the nearest 10 and 100. We introduced them to force meters and how to measure in Newtons in science which was very exciting and practical. During art, the children have learnt how to use different techniques with water colours and are now using their new posh sketch books. Some children might be humming Mamma Mia at home… we are using this Abba song in music!
School Council elections 2021-22
Thank you to all the children who put themselves forward for School Council. Please see Mrs Simpson’s newsletter for details of our new councillors.
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 now ready to go! 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. Teachers will check the online logs every Friday. Please let your class teacher know if there is a problem.
Really sorry for the delay in books for spellings. Next week, we will give out new purple books and spelling lists.
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.
