Staff have been reviewing the huge range of online resources currently available to assist you with home learning. You will find a selection of our recommended ones in the 'Websites' section of the class page.
Links to websites relevant to weekly planning will be available on each weekly learning sheet in order that they can be easily accessed.
Responsible Internet Use and Esafety
As children may now be accessing the Internet and online activities more frequently, please take the opportunity to share the 'acceptable use' rules we follow in school. These can be found below. Please read and discuss them with your children and explain what they should do if they come across something that makes them feel sad or angry. The children have taken part in Internet Safety Day. Parental guidance, documents and links are available on the website under 'Esafety'.
Week beginning 25th January 2021
Hello children. We hope that you and your families are safe and well and that you have been enjoying the snow! It was lovely to speak to some of you last week. You all brightened my day! This week we would like you to remember to treat yourselves. It is important to take time for yourselves at the moment and also for your family members too. Plan something for you all to look forward to this week. You could create your very own cinema, play a favourite game or bake something delicious to enjoy. Lucy and Molly had some knickerbocker glories last week. They certainly made them smile!
This week we are looking at 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. Mrs Taylor has made her own beanstalk (see Powerpoint below). Perhaps you could have a go at making your own.
Remember how proud we all are of you for trying your best and looking after your families. Get planning those treats!
Week beginning 18th January 2021
We hope that all the Cherry Champions are safe and well and that you enjoyed learning about the traditional tale 'Goldilocks' last week! This week we are looking at 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. There are lots of different learning activities to take part in on this week's home learning sheet. Remember to read the green sections every day to make sure you're practising all those important skills. If you need books from school, please email email@example.com. They will be available to collect on a Friday 10am - 11am. You will see an extra star this week called the 'Home Learning Enrichment 2021' star. This contains optional extra activities that you might like to have a look at if you have time.
Last week Mrs Taylor enjoyed walking in the Lickey Hills with her dog Herbie. She noticed lots of different footprints in the snow. Have a look at the photos and see if you can work out which animals have left their footprints behind.
After a chilly walk, Mrs Taylor decided to have a go at making her own bear prints. You could try this at home with a potato, some paint and your fingers!
Week beginning 11th January 2021
Hello Cherry Champions! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that you are staying safe. Our home learning over the next few weeks is going to be based on fairy tales, beginning with 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. You'll find a link to a lovely ballet on the home learning sheet below if you need reminding of the story.
Each day we'd like you to try to read, practise your phonics and spelling on Edshed, write your full name and the full date, continue with Numbots and to use your hundred square from your home learning pack to practise recognising numbers and counting. You will find lots of other learning activities for you to complete on the home learning sheets and links to resources that you might want to use. Our recommended websites are in the 'Websites' section of the class page (the second star).
It is also important that you stay active, creative and inquisitive, trying new things when you can. This weekend we made different coloured volcanoes using a plastic bottle, food colouring, white vinegar and bicarbonate of soda. You might want to investigate this too!
