Welcome to Stream webpage
This term our project is farming.
It's the weekend!
It suddenly feels like time is accelerating and we are hurtling towards Christmas. Thank you for working with your children to learn the song words. I know it is probably driving you a little bonkers, but if you could have one final push, it would really help us.
Spellings will arrive with you next week as each child will have a personal list. I will explain more about this once they each have it.
I want to take this opportunity to explain what we are doing in English. I know that some of the children have had no experience of the online platform, Oak National Academy. This is where we direct children who are self isolating and would also be used if our bubble had to closed. To ensure that they all know what the platform looks like and what is expected, I have planned a 'one off' series of English lessons. Obviously, we are providing teaching to accompany this but I am hoping it is a valuable experience. This week, Y1 have had a look at it, they will be doing a little more next week then it will be the turn of Y2. The year group not using Oak are receiving a normal, guided writing session.
In maths, we will be continuing to look at partitioning numbers to to make solving problems easier. For example, they children will be taught to recognise 73 could be partitioned into 50, 20 and 3. The more comfortable they are playing with numbers, the deeper their understanding becomes.
In addition to all this, I intend to complete a DT task focusing on food and further develop our acting and singing skills to produce our section of the Christmas play.
I hope you enjoy your weekend.
We are looking at various ways of adapting this term's events in order to ensure that we are as safe as possible whilst providing meaningful, enjoyable learning experiences.
Watch this space!
Please remember that PE will take place on a Monday. Please send your children in wearing their PE kit. They will not need their uniform as we will not be getting changed.
Please send them in with a raincoat every day.
