Friday 2nd April 2021
We've had a busy final week of term - but it's been a lot of fun, with running, board games and more!
Our historical reports on the Lindisarne raids have been completed, with all children really getting stuck into the topic, which really seemed to capture their imaginations! In maths, we have been working on coordinates, which ended with our Easter Egg hunt - using our coordinates to find the clues which led to the eggs! Thanks to the FOSPS for the eggs!
We all had a go at running for thirty minutes on the last day of term, with many children managing to complete a 5k run (10 laps of the bike track) in that time - a fabulous achievement! We've also had more tennis and circus skills (photos below) this week, so we're sending the children home tired and ready for a break!
For history, we made board games based on the punishments and ordeals of the Anglo-Saxon times - the children had a lot of fun playing their games as well as making them (photos below)! In science, we revisited an earlier theme (water resistance) with a focus on developing our own scientific investigations (comparing buoyancy in salt water and fresh water). Photos below!
Attached below is the Budehaven transition letter that you were emailed earlier in the week.
Have a fabulous, relaxing Easter break, and we look forward to seeing everyone's fresh faces - ready to go in a couple of weeks' time!
Homework: Your child should be bringing their homework book home with them. We expect them to do the following:
Ten minutes of TTRS
Spellings: Please choose and practise another ten spellings from the year 5/6 spelling list (in the cover of the homework book), using one of the methods from the spelling menu (also in the homework book)
Daily reading (at least five times!), preferably to an adult
We are now all using google classroom for remote learning. We are practising in classes and now need everyone to check they can log on. This can be accessed on ANY device as it is via the internet.
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. 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.
We do want your child to post a message to their class teacher to say they have logged on successfully at home. They then can show you how it works (we are not experts yet!) and log off.
Please notify your class teacher if you are unable to logon.
Every child’s email account is disabled. We do not need them to use this option. Their login is their email account though!
This will be the year they were in year 1, followed by their name and first letter of their surname and then everyone has the same end part. For example: John Smith who joined in 2015 will be: firstname.lastname@example.org
Some pupils do have a slight variation – most of the pupils do know their logins.
Password: Stratton (capital S) This will be changing for individuals very soon so your child will have their own password.
NB: You are only allowed to logon to your own account. We will be signing user agreements in the near future and this is one of the most important agreements.
