Week Beginning 13th July
Good Morning and welcome to the last week of a very strange school year.
Most of the work this week is revision and I will also put a quiz on later in the week for a bit of fun.
We will be having our last Zoom meeting of the year on Wednesday at 2pm. Please try to join us. The children who will be in class on Wednesday will be really pleased to see you all.
Don't forget to send your pupil comments in so that I can add them to your reports.

This week is all about being fit and healthy. There are lots of activities for you to do, so you can learn more about keeping yourself healthy. Have a look at the Activities sheet, as it explains the different things you can do and gives you some great websites to visit.

This week's Zoom meeting will be on Friday morning and it will be a virtual Sports Day. Do try to join us.
I look forward to seeing what you get up to this week.

Week Beginning 1st June
Hello Lark Class. I hope you are all well and that you had a lovely time last week. More work will be added later this morning, when I am in school, so if you check back mid-morning, it will all be on here.
I am hoping to have another Zoom meeting on Wednesday afternoon. It was great to see so many of you last time and we all had fun. I hope that a few more of you will be able to join this week's meeting.
More messages and chapters of Brightstorm to follow.
Week Beginning 18th May
Hello Lark Class
It was lovely talking to so many of you last week and hearing all your news. Thank you for all the photos that you have been sending in.
This week has a SPACE theme to it, so lots of the work is linked in some way to space. Let's see how much you can learn about space this week. All the work is saved below. There is: writing, maths, arithmetic, spellings, grammar, Science, History and RE. Let us know how you get on.
On Thursday afternoon this week we will have a class Zoom meeting. This will be an opportunity for you see your friends and to share some of your news. It will be a show-and-tell session. You can show and talk about something that you've done or made - just for a minute or two. You will be sent more details about the meeting nearer the time. I hope to see lots of you there.
Week Beginning 11th May
Hello Lark Class.
I hope you had a lovely weekend and celebrated VE day with your families.
Well done to all of you who took part in the life skills challenge last week. I will be uploading the photos soon.
This week's work can be found in the zipped folders below. Try and do some writing and maths every day and then do one topic lesson a day, eg History on Monday, RE on Tuesday, Science on Wednesday. Remember to keep reading and also to practise this week's spellings. Ask someone to test you on your spellings on Friday.
NB The overview for the writing is in the folder, but the worksheets and a video will be uploaded on Monday.
Please email us to show us what you have been doing or ask any questions.
Miss Roberts, Mrs Webb, Mrs Beard
Week Beginning 4th May
I hope you have all had a good weekend. Make sure you watch Mr Priestley's video blog, as he explains about the work for this week. We are setting you some life-skills challenges. I wonder who will manage to complete all of them. Remember to email us your photos and share what you have learnt.
A couple of weeks ago, I set you the challenge of learning the alphabet in sign language. This week I will sign a sentence and see who can work out what it says.
I hope you are enjoying listening to Brightstorm. I will add more chapters this week.
Have a good week. We will catch up with you later in the week.
Week Beginning 27th April

Remember to join in with the daily rainbow photo challenge.
Have a good week and email us if you want to share work or need help.

Keeping fit and healthy with P.E at home.
real PE at home – online learning resources
real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.
It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from this week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.
There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months. Here are the details to access real PE at home:

WEEK 2 Writing Prompt

WEEK 2 SPELLINGS
Remember, all your spellings are listed further down this page.
If you would like a website to help you with spellings, try:
I know some of you have had trouble printing resources, either because you don't have working printers, or because the website is really busy and slow. Don't worry if you are struggling to access the work, the teachers are also having problems with the website for the same reasons.
Do what you can, when you can. If you can't print off the worksheets, copy the questions/answers into your Home Learning book, notebook, or sheet of paper.
There are also lots of activities you can do around the house, such as baking/cooking, designing a game or activity, creating challenges for each other, playing board games or card games, keeping fit and reading, reading, reading!
Where tasks are labelled bronze, silver or gold, these tasks vary in difficulty and bronze is the easiest. Have a look at the tasks and see which one you think is the correct level to give you suitable challenge. If you complete a silver maths activity and then want to try a gold one, that is fine.
I have now uploaded the beginning of Brightstorm. If you have a look in the folder called 'Story Time' it is in there. Some of the writing work will be based on this book, so make sure you enjoy listening to the recordings.
Most importantly, stay inside, stay safe and look after each other.

Week Beginning 23.3.20
For Thursday and Friday of this week, there are several different tasks for you to do (attached below). You can choose when you do them.
If the task has stars by it, the sheet with one star is the easiest. * ** ***
You do not need to print off all these activities, some of them are games.
Let me know how you get on, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The answers for Monday and Tuesday's maths are attached below.
Today, warm up by practising 55 Club, or play this times tables game.
Then, try the Week 1 Maths Challenge.
Also, have a look at Vashti Hardy's Home Learning website and watch her video. Why not try the Great Story Lego Challenge, today.
Don't forget, the DT Challenge (to make a robot arm). Send me photos when you have finished it.
Audio files of Brightstorm will be saved in the Story Time folder.
I hope you enjoy listening.
This week we started reading our new class novel, Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy. Each week I will upload an audio file of chapters from the book so that children can keep up with the story and not miss out on our class story time. I have been in touch with Vashti Hardy and she will be adding resources to her website, so I will add these when they appear.
For now, I am adding a pdf of Chapter 1 and a link to Vashti's website.
Homework for Monmouth Class is given out on a Thursday and due in by the following Wednesday.
Reading - children should read at least 4 times a week at home and have their Reading Records signed.
Spellings - the children have a weekly spelling list to practise. This is in their red spelling books. These books need to be in school every Thursday, so we can give out the new list.
Times tables - these need to be practised at home. Children are expected to know all the tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4.
There may also be a grammar/maths sheet and a topic-related task.
