Hello Class 5!

What kind of weekend have you had? Has anybody been bike riding or walking? Maybe some of you have been able to see more family members from a safe distance?

It has been a strange week for weather, with a mixture of sunshine, showers, thunder and lightning. Did any of you get caught in the big thunderstorm we had on Tuesday? I hear we are having a heat wave this week so get your sun cream ready. 🌞😎

I am now very busy working in school everyday and looking after our key worker children so, as already mentioned, I will do my very best to keep the learning purposeful, up-to-date and interesting. I will still check emails so please don't hesitate to contact me and I will endeavour to reply as quickly as I can.

I love hearing what you're getting up to!

If there is anything you are struggling with, I am happy to do a Zoom call to teach you at home and help where I can. Please just ask and I will set it up 

Have a great week Year 5!

Well, what a busy week it has been!

Mrs Storrs and I are now back to school and have been super busy arranging the classrooms to welcome back the Year 6 children. I know many of you have been asking when you will be returning. I hope it won’t be too much longer but honestly, nobody knows just yet.

I will be working in school this week but I will try to keep myself available to respond to your emails.

It was great to see so many of you on the Zoom call on Friday, I had really missed you over the half term so thank you for joining me.

 

Unfortunately it has been very wet this weekend and will be a little mixed during the week. I hope it hasn't stopped you getting out for fresh air. It is so, so important you do this. It can become very tempting to become glued to the TV. Try and find time for a little exercise every day.

 

In other news...did you know that today (8th June) is World Oceans Day? This is held every year to raise awareness of the vital importance of our oceans and the role they play in sustaining a healthy planet. Something we have already learnt about earlier this year. Take a look at the video clip below to learn more about our oceans.

It is also National Best Friends Day. So go on, send a card, FaceTime message, or a GIF to those important people in your life as a little reminder how important their friendship is to you. 

Stay safe guys and keep in touch.

Welcome back to Summer term 2! 

I hope you have all had an amazing half term and enjoyed time with your families. I am sorry, I haven't been in touch but I made the conscious decision not to contact you last week because I wanted you to relax and not worry about school work. I can't wait to speak to you all on our next Zoom call on Friday. I bet you have lots to tell me 

I wonder if any of you have learnt a new skill or been on any new adventures. Maybe you have seen your friends from a safe distance when you have been out walking or bike riding?

I have been really busy this week planning for Oliver's birthday as he turned 7 on Saturday! We had our very own garden party and barbeque although I know he hasn't been the only one celebrating this week. Happy belated birthday to Izzy (who celebrated her birthday on Friday) and Olivia, who shared her birthday with Oliver on Saturday. I was thinking of you both. I also want to say "Happy Birthday" to Maja for today (1st June).

This weeks learning grid is on the home learning section of the class page with the links for tasks on the relevant subject areas. We are continuing with Ancient Egyptians and focusing on the River Nile.

As always, please get in touch with any questions you have or a quick "Hello" via email would be nice. Remember to keep blogging too!

Speak to you soon.

Hi Class 5. I hope you have all had a good week managed to stay in touch with your friends remotely.

It was so lovely to see so many of you on the Zoom call on Friday. I love hearing about what you have been doing. 

This week is Christian Aid Week where, in school, we would collect in the Christian Aid envelopes and learn about the work of Christian Aid during our Collective Worship time. Due to circumstance being different this year, I would like you to check out this website at home.

 https://www.christianaid.org.uk/schools/primary-teaching-resources 

In addition, it would also be this week that we would be taking part in Thy Kingdom Come. This is your RE focus for this week so check out the RE home learning page for links.

 

This week is also Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is Kindness. At this difficult time it would be great if you and your family could take some time to reflect on all the kind things that you’ve done or experienced during lockdown so that we can celebrate them as a community. You could also plan some random acts of kindness during the week. Please email pictures or reflections.

There are also lots of ideas and activities listed on the document below for you and your children to focus on your wellbeing.

Also check out the meditation video below.

Have a great week everyone and I look forward to hearing from you.

I can't believe it is already week 4 of the Summer term! 

Thank you so much to all of you who joined our Zoom last Wednesday but with Bank holiday on Friday, it seems an awfully long time since I have spoken to you. By now, I have spoken to all of you in some capacity and it is so great to know that you are all well. Please try your very best to get on the Zoom call this week. It will be on Friday at 10am so I will send the code to your parents via text this week. If you are unable to access, please let me know.

How has your week been? We have been blessed with some beautiful sunshine again so I was making the most of the outdoors again.  Oliver and I have been learning about Google Earth and making comparisons with the UK and Nigeria, we have been writing letters to Grandparents and running/biking along the canal. 

We made poppies for VE day and had our own little street party and this weekend, we went camping "Camish style"...well, in the back garden.

Here are a few photos so you can see our adventures. I would love to see yours!

Have a great week everyone and I look forward to hearing from you.

W/c 4th May

Welcome to a new week Class 5. I hope you have all had a relaxing weekend with your families and managed to enjoy the fresh air, whether it be in your gardens or on a walk/bike ride, just make sure you are keeping yourselves safe and social distancing.

Thank you so much to all of you who joined our Zoom calls last Friday. It was so good to hear from all of you and see the smiles on your faces. Mrs Storrs and I loved hearing about all the learning that had been taking place. Keep up the good work!

I was at school for the most part of last week however, in addition, I have been busy baking with Oliver (carrot cake muffins), teaching him the 3,4 and 9 times tables, letter writing, learning about forces in science and going back in time to discover Kings and Queens.

We have been gardening and yesterday, we had a lovely 7 mile run/bike ride along the canal. It was tough keeping up with the bikes! 

Don't forget that this Friday is a Bank Holiday for VE day so please don't be doing school work. Spend the day with you families celebrating the 75th Anniversary. Maybe you will be joining your neighbours in a nationwide (stay at home) street party? Don't forget the 2 minutes silence at 11am!

Have a great week everyone and I look forward to hearing from you.

W/C 27th April 2020

Hello Class 5 and welcome to week 2 of the Summer term.

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine. I appreciate that at the moment, life is very different and we haven’t started our new topic in the conventional way but this is brand new and we are all learning to adapt. You must remember that it IS OKAY to feel a little lost and out of routine but that is where I can help.

Having structure in your day is important, even for grown-ups, which is why the learning grids are so useful.

All of the tasks set will have resources to help you complete them, which are found on the corresponding subject section. For example, the reading comprehension task can all be found in the Reading section.

You are not required to print the work off as I appreciate not all of you have the facility to do that at home, however, some of you may prefer to do this to keep track of the work completed.

 

Remember to send me any work to check through by emailing me at class5@st-annes.notts.sch.uk or just simply say hello if you just want to chat. I would love to hear what you have been up to.

 

Parents…THANK YOU! Don’t underestimate your worth, you are all stronger than you think and you ARE doing great!

But remember that your priority, for now, is to stay safe, stay healthy and stay positive - together.

With love,

Mrs C x

W/c 20th April

Good morning and welcome to the start of the Summer Term. I hope you have all had fun over the Easter break. What have you been up to? I have been busy teaching Oliver but have also spent as much time as possible in the garden because we have had some beautiful weather. I have attached some photographs below.

This term we will be looking at exploring the Ancient Egyptians. A knowledge organiser can be found on the Home Learning page to outline activities you can complete at home.

Each week, I will be adding a timetable which will outline activities to be completed each day however, I do understand that these may be done at different times depending on your family circumstances.

I look forwards to hearing from you all. Mrs C x

Easter message

Dear Parents,
As we approach Easter week, I want to thank you for all the fantastic work you are doing with the children in such challenging times. We realise that not every child will be at the same stage with their work but when we do finally get back to the normal schooling, we will all work together to get caught up. 

Mrs Storrs and I really appreciate receiving emails from you asking for support. We are missing the daily, personal connection with the children and therefore your emails give us encouragement and I would ask that you keep in contact with us even to let us know how the children are doing!

Normally on the run up to Holy Week in school, the class would spend time thinking about Jesus and the difficult journey he had. During this time of uncertainty I acknowledge that many of our families are suffering as Jesus did. To support the children in thinking about Jesus  I have attached a resource from The Church of England  to help us find words at this difficult and stressful time and to enable us, as Christians, to worship in solidarity with one another even when it is not possible to gather in a church building.

    
Finally I just want to say that the Health and Wellbeing of you and your families is more important than anything at present and to all the Keyworkers, as a school community and country we are truly indebted to you.  Please stay safe and enjoy the remainder of your Easter holidays with your families.
God Bless xx

W/c 6th April

I can't believe it is April already. Where has the time gone?

How are you all feeling? The weather wasn't as nice last week but I think this week is going to be much better. The sun is definitely shining as I type this and I can't wait to get out in the garden.

What have you got planned during these Easter Holidays? Were any of you supposed to be going on holiday anywhere? Maybe you could recreate your adventure at home?

I am sure by now you are beginning to adjust to the changes in routine and have never been so good at baking, painting and colouring. I would love to see some of your Easter creations.

Since home schooling Oliver, I have become an expert at teaching Phase 6 phonics and I now know the entire Avengers team inside out. 

I have created a little video for you on the home learning page, I hope you like it. Please email me and let me know what you think.

With love, Mrs C x

 

W/c 30th March

Hello Class 5,

Well, it’s now been a week (more for some) since we’ve been together at school – how has it been for you all?

I hope you’ve all managed to find a good balance between work, fun and downtime in your new schedules. When I haven't been in school, I’ve enjoyed getting stuck into gardening, cleaning, gym classes at home and going on some lovely walks/runs for my daily exercise. I have also been trying to get to grips with some year 2 work so I can home school Oliver…eeek!

Who has tried P.E with Joe? We’ve been doing it most days in our house - it's a great way to start the day.

Who’s created a rainbow for their window?

Keep checking the home learning section for updated tasks and keep your eyes peeled for marvellous me messages and abacus tasks.

Don’t forget to send any pictures of projects, activities, recipes you’ve tried and anything else that’s been keeping you busy.

Stay safe, stay in and keep smiling.

I miss you crazy lot!
