A warm welcome back after October half - term holiday ...

Hello and a warm welcome back to Class Earhart,

 

I hope you are feeling strong and well as we enter this new and exciting chapter of primary schools remaining open across the country. This means children will be able to continue learning well and make great strides with their progress. Across the school, we have implemented a new and robust daily timetable which combines safety and learning and we are pleased to announce that our children are working very sensibly with this. I am sure we can say the same about the little pixie who has been shovelling glitter in to our soap though. Good news parents, it’s working!

Class Teacher Update: May Half Term Holiday

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are remaining well. I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge well done to every child who has logged in and worked so very conscientiously on Seesaw and on other learning patterns and projects at home. I have had the pleasure of receiving some outstanding, completed tasks and heart-warming messages. It has been incredible to hear from you and watch you work daily. You have embraced Seesaw and held your concentration to ensure that your learning continues, even in an emotionally challenging time. You deserve a great deal of praise for this and know that I am sending it to you! I really must stress now just how important it is for you to all take a break from school work and play. Go and do what makes you feel happy. Teachers will not be setting any work or providing feedback during half term (week commencing 25th May 2020). E-mails will be answered after the school holiday (week commencing 1st June 2020). For now, follow all government advice and remain kind as we prepare to re-build things, together. Sending my very best wishes to you all. I am proud to be your teacher. Amy Lackenby

What a fantastic start to the new half term!

Wow, what an exciting first half term Class Blyton have had! We have managed to fly around 7 different continents in the space of just 8 weeks! As Explorers, we have learnt about the 7 continents and the 5 oceans of the world as well as visiting a country in each of the continents. Our enquiry was ‘Which countries are in each of the continents?’

As Writers, we have created our own narratives based on our class novel as well as learning all about instructions and how to write them.

As Readers, we have also worked hard to develop our fluency as well as trying hard to read at least 3 times a week at home. We have had the opportunity to make inferences and predictions on what might happen next in a story and why.

Year 6. What do you feel strongly about?

Hello everyone,

 

The most wonderfully moving thing about my class is their ability to empathise and I wanted them to somehow utilise this in lessons; we all know how much there is to gain when you play to your strengths. But how to do it? That was the question.

Dead rodents and pig hearts; the stuff all great primary classrooms are made of!

Good afternoon all,

 

You just know it is going to be a bad day when a dead rodent falls into your bowl while you’re pouring yourself some Kellog’s Crunchy Nut cereal during a dark, winter morning. It turns out that Year 6 ‘have my back’ as they wasted no time in sitting down to write a formal and powerful letter of complaint about Kellog’s Quality Control standards. Please ask Year 6 pupils for examples of formal language and how to structure an effective, formal letter of complaint.
