Week Commencing 22nd June

Its been a busy time since some of you came back to school! I am very impressed with how quickly those that have come back have settled back into lessons and started to enjoy school again. I have also been really proud of the children still working from home, completing all of the home learning tasks, and even extra work that they wanted to do all by themselves! 


 If you're still working from home, keep using Times Tables Rock Stars and Numbots and don't forget to try some Purple Mash Tasks too. I love seeing some pictures of the work you've been completing like the photo of this superstar below! Well done everyone!

I hope you all had a fantastic half term, staff at school have been working hard over this time to make it safer for you to return over the next few weeks. Mr Mole and Miss Lucy will be contacting you via telephone on Thursday this week in relation to the Hub's phased return to school.  We will use this time to discuss our plans and you will be welcome in voicing any concerns and opinions. 

There will be new learning packs for those who need them in the school office from Tuesday.

Birds are the theme this week. There are lots of suggested activities to complete over the next week, but if you want a real challenge - choose one British bird and create a non-chronological report with all the information you can find out about it. Don't forget to include features like headings, subheading, paragraphs, bullet points, etc.

I continue to enjoy all of you wonderful art that you have been producing through out the last few weeks. This week try aviary! Create a bird out of a medium of your choice.

 This week’s star learner is Luna. Nana showed me lot of Luna's home learning work. I'm very impressed with her number work and how hard she has tried to practice her number bonds. I'm also really pleased with all her phonics work. Well done Luna! I'm very impressed.    
Week Commencing 11th May

Maths 
This week I have seen lots of work completed on Purple Mash and I know you are all working hard on your home learning packs. Moving forward I’d like to see a bigger use of Times Tables Rock Stars and Numbots. Try to play one at least one a day.

When I did home visits last week a few of you mentioned you were finding Times Tables Rock Stars a little tricky. I have gone onto the website and set different tables, so now you should only have times tables questions popping up that we have practiced in school. Let me know if it is still too hard for you. Here are the current leaders from our class on these apps, so well-done boys, let’s see if someone else can get on the leader board next week:

Numbots:  Tyler .
Times tables Rockstar’s: Chace

English
Don't forget to practise spellings and/or phonics everyday. 

Traditional Tales is the theme this week. Your home learning packs have a focus on the Gingerbread man and Jack and the Beanstalk. However, there are loads of traditional tales! Which is your favourite? Retell your favourite traditional tale or create a different version of a traditional tale. What if Little Red Riding Hood was able to phone for help? What if Cinderella had not run away from the ball at midnight? What if Jack did not climb up the beanstalk but the giant climbed down?  I’ll upload the stories you create next week – so keep an eye out for them!

Other
I have been particularly impressed with your artwork and coding skills during lockdown. Try and keep your creative streak going and create a fairy tale castle. It could be a castle for a princess, or a castle for a giant. Or maybe you would rather create a castle with a dragon guarding some treasure. You could make your castle out of old cardboard boxes, or you could use lego or even just design one on paper.  Send in a picture and I’ll upload some photos next week. Well done for everything you have been doing so far. Sienna has even been doing PE on her trampoline! Check out the picture below.   
Friday 8th May: Star Award 
 This week’s star learner is Sienna. She has been working really hard on all of her home learning tasks, her Dad even dropped off a folder of her work at school for me to have a look through. She has set up a home learning station in the living room where she has been practicing her letter formation, which has continued to improve. She’ll be writing best selling novels before we know it! Well done Sienna!

I have been out this week dilvering your home learning packs, they are all custom made and so should included extra resources that I thought were suitable to what you need to practice or learn and I thought you might enjoy. It was great to see thos eof you who were able to come to the door for a (socially distanced) chat. I look forward to seeing you all in school again when it is safe to do so.

 A message from Mr Mole:

Hi Everyone, I hope you're all staying safe!
You should start each day with some phonics or reading.
The company that produces the phonics scheme we use within school are publishing daily phonics lessons between 9:30 and 10:30. Live videos and the back catalogue can be found on their Youtube channel. I recommend phonicsplay.co.uk for phonics games.
Read as much as you can, even if it is just some news articles on the newsround website but if you need some more books Oxford Owl has a huge library of ebooks that are currently free to access. All you need is an email to set up a free account.
Inspired by some of the Hub children recently discovering The Lion, the Witch and the wardrobe I'm currently re-reading all of the Chronicles of Narnia. Don't forget to note down what books you're reading and whether or not you liked them. 
Try and get some maths done each day, this could be from your home learning pack, from tasks I set on Purple Mash or from TTrockstars.  I also recommend NUMBOTs to practice the basic skills of maths. The logins I gave you for TTrockstars should work for this. 
As well as phonics/reading and Maths, I've been issuing new tasks on Purple Mash each day, these might be art related, a science job or something else. I love all the messages that I am getting when children submit their work. I'll be printing off all your hard work and we can create a display of all the work completed during all of this self isolation so don't forget to save it so I get to download it. If you fancy getting arty check out #drawwithrob he has a huge catalogue of drawing tutorials.  
While working hard on academic studies is important, please also use this time to enjoy the company of your household and have fun. Here are some suggested activities: 
  • Bake and cook together. 
  • Play with toys together.
  • Do household chores together. 
  • Play some board games. 
  • Create models out of lego, or whatever you find around the house. 
  • Make a daily phone call to someone you love, but cannot see due to social distancing. 
  • Do something kind each day for someone in your house. 


Please look after you physical and mental health. Do exercise when you can and make sure you talk to those around you.  
As this is an unprecedented and unique time in human history it will be taught about in years to come. I think you should all start journals of your experience of being in self isolation - would be very interesting to look back on it when you are a grown up. It could be a written journal, like a diary or picture based log of what you have been doing. It could even be a vlog, as I know there are some Youtube star wannabes in The Hub. Feel free to share this with me if you do choose to do it but remember to stay safe online during all of this e-learning. Childnet have some good resources to help you and your adults understand a little more about staying safe online.  
If you need to get in touch with me, do not hesitate to email me: pmolepmps@gmail.com
I miss you all, and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Mr Mole.
