Hello Year One Children, Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to our new Summer Term. I hope that you have kept safe and well during the Easter Holidays.

We have planned lots of different activities for you to complete and we are very lucky that Miss Hollison and Mrs Jones will also be working with us in Year 1 while we carry out our Home Learning. They will be commenting on your work and setting you some challenges too!

This week in English, we are reading ‘Sharing a Shell’ by Julia Donaldson and we will be making predictions about the story and writing a persuasive piece of text. In mathematics, we shall be continuing our learning about numbers including doubling and halving activities. Our Foundation Task is learning about Andrew Goldsworthy and discovering how he used the natural world to create his sculpture and art work. You will be able to create your own piece of art using the natural materials around you!

Additonally, we will send you a Daily News task and ask you questions about the world around you.  We will also ask you to complete weekly spellings and number bond tasks.

I have sent you more resources on Seesaw which you may find useful for additional learning activities.

Take care and stay safe! Have fun with your learning activities.

Best wishes,

Miss Bowtell

These will now be collated ready to go on your end of year reports.

Good morning Year 3,

This weeks project is really important because we would like everyone to create a self-portraits which will go onto the front cover of your end of Year 3 school report. Therefore we are expecting high-quality pieces of art. We would like everyone to try their hardest.

This week in English we will be looking at a new myth called Pandora’s Box. In Maths we are continuing with learning about time. This week we will be focusing on telling the time to the nearest minute, AM/ PM, and the 24 hour clock system. This week the spelling rule are are focusing on is words with the ay /eI/ sound spelt ei, eigh or ey. This week’s words are: veil, neighbour, eight, reign, they, obey, beige, sleigh, vein, weigh. 

We have left up the ‘This is Me’ written assignments for your reports in case you still need to complete the written activity for your reports.

Remember if you need any support with your home learning you can always ask Miss Martin or Miss Reeve a questions.

We are so incredibly proud of Year Three and it has been a joy to see your home learning each day, we would like to thank you all!

Over the next week we will be reading the Greek myth of Icarus and Deadauls. We will then be writing a diary entry from the point of view of Icarus. In Maths this week we are going to be looking at telling the time. We will also be learning how many days there are in each month. Remember to work through the PowerPoints and listen to the instructions before completing your assigned work. Your spelling focus this week is words from the Year 3 list of words. This week you will need to use your times table knowledge to help you answer the daily division questions. You can also use last weeks methods to help you.

As you would of seen last week our History focus for this term is all about Ancient Greece. This week though, we are going to start looking at the Olympics and how it has changed since it was created in Ancient Greece.

Keep smiling Year Three and we look forward to seeing your wonderful work and achievements on Seesaw.

VE Day

VE Day

Friday the 8th May 2020 saw the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Year 4 really got into the spirit of the day and completed a variety of activities from home linked to this important date in history. We were code breakers, using Morse code to crack hidden messages. We reflected on old photographs from the time and some of the words from Winston Churchill. We even designed our own VE Day celebrations!

A fantastic day of learning Year 4, well done!

Mrs Edwards

Freddie’s Fundraising

Freddie’s Fundraising

This morning we were blown away to hear about the fabulous fundraising that Freddie had undertaken when he was inspired by Captain Tom Moore.

Freddie’s mum posted: Freddie has been in awe of Captain Tom Moore (like the rest of the nation). It inspired Freddie that he would like to help the NHS in his own way. On Sunday 3rd May, Freddie invited his friends to run/bike/walk or scoot 1 mile (obviously social distancing and in allowance of going out to exercise or to do it in their back gardens). The target was set at £100. Freddie and his friends raised a fabulous £465. Here is his video:

In school this week, Year 5 made some posters to celebrate VE day. Head on over to Seesaw to create your own for today’s challenge!

What a week in Year 6!

What a week in Year 6!

Home learning in year 6 has been very impressive this week! Pupils have shown determination, creativity and passion as they have worked.  Our focus has been algebra, inferred writing, and on the town of Huntingdon: its amazing impact on our lives and the lives of those before us.  Throughout the last few weeks pupils have explored the history of Huntingdon, becoming active members of Huntingdon society by investigating the present needs and make up of the town, and then finally looking into the future of our town.  

We have seen such pride and imagination in writing and projects, with some children really finding a passion for setting a scene.  In both English and the weekly projects, the children have been able to decipher and improve scenes from fantasy and reality.   

In maths, the children have started working with algebraic expressions and operations.  Each day, the pupils have challenges themselves to learn and apply key features of algebra, such as calculation, formulae and expression.  They ended the week completing a quiz based on the vocabulary and concepts they learned.  

The teachers and TAs of year 6 are so proud of the work handed in this week and it has been a struggle choosing the shout-outs each day due to the amazing work handed in.  Congratulations to Baker, Giuliano and Katie-Anne for Star of the Week!  They have been recognised for reliance, respect, and pride towards themselves, their work, and those around them.  It is a real pleasure seeing your work and ideas, though it is not the same as in person.  In keeping with the spirit of the anniversary of VE Day, we ask that you all take time to feel proud, happy, and cared for.  We are looking forward to seeing you all again!  In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.

This is Me

Another great week of home learning Year 6! We are incredibly proud of the efforts you are putting in and would like to thank everyone that has posted on SeeSaw this week. The children have spent this week considering what makes them special and unique. They have explored their talents, their loves and passions and their goals and aspirations for the future. We have seen such pride in these pieces of writing, and some children have gone above and beyond to uplevel their work to ensure it is their absolute best! These will now be collated ready to go on their end of year reports.

In maths, the children have been working out percentages while continuing to look at data. They ended the week by collecting their own data to present. The children have chosen to present their data as either bar charts, line graphs, pictograms or pie charts. Some interesting questions for their data collecting this week and some mathematically stunning presentations!

We have had so much to be proud of this week and there have been many shout outs for those children who have excelled each day! Today the children will find out who has won ‘Home Learning Star of the Week’ for standing out all week in their home learning. Check in on SeeSaw at 9.30 to see if it’s you!

We miss you all terribly, and cannot wait until we can be back together. Until then, stay safe and we look forward to seeing your brilliant work on SeeSaw!
