Dear Parents/ Carers,

 

From tomorrow, I would like to use google classroom in order to set work for the children and give them feedback (a link for the classroom can be found below). We have practised using google classroom in class. When you click on the link you will have to sign into google using the children's username and password (they should know these and have them written in the back of their reading journals, if they cannot remember then please email the school and we will email it to you). I hope this will be successful. Using the google classroom is a good way to share learning tasks with the children and give them feedback, it is also a good way for them to communicate any issues they have with work, to me. 

Your child's username will be their first name and the first letter of their surname followed by @netherstowey.school For example: bob.m@netherstowey.school Their password is the same password used to log into the chrome books at school.

 

Kind Regards

 

Mrs Bowditch

Rough guide to a weekly time table - please don't feel you have to follow this exactly, it's just a guide. Remember to have a look at the useful websites - home learning tab above. The main thing is to try and make it fun! :) P.S. The children could share any work they do with me using the google classroom - they have all had a go at doing this before.

At the moment in Maple class we are learning:

* Fractions - looking at equivalent fractions, improper and mixed number fractions, and counting and sequencing 

* Spellings - compound words 

* Reading - comprehension, we have also been looking writing and performing poetry

* Geography - looking at our local area and comparing rural to urban areas (please see homework sent out at the beginning of term for this). 

For resources for any of this, please see the useful websites tab at the top of the screen. smiley

We had a lot of fun during literacy week. We played a game of Cluedo around the school and finished it by eating plum pie, yum. We also read the true story of the three little pigs. After reading this, we acted the story out in groups. We then used the ideas from that story to change the story of Little Red Riding Hood. 

Acting out The True Story of The Three Little Pigs

Before starting to read our new Power of Reading book 'Oliver and the Seawigs', we have been responding to the illustration and speculating about the moods and feelings of the characters by just looking at the illustration of them. 

As part of geography, we have been locating different countries, continents and oceans on a map.

We have been using concrete materials in our maths to help us understand arrays and multiplication. 

We had a fantastic day on the West Somerset Railway! Take a look at what we got up to. 

We enjoyed our visit from the Living History Museum and learnt a lot about WW2.
