Extreme Earth curriculum overview Autumn Term 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

As we approach the end of this term, I hope you and your families are all keeping well. Reverend Kevin Wright has created another Collective Worship to share with the children. This is based on the Christian value respect and uses the story of Jesus clearing the Temple. The link is:

Thank you to all the children who have written some beautiful prayers- please continue to send them into school, as they are greatly received and will be added to our prayer book.

 

I hope the children enjoy the Collective Worship.

 

Kind regards,

F. Robertson

 

Executive Headteacher

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

I hope you and your families are all keeping well.

 

Please find a Collective Worship kindly produced by Reverend Kevin Wright and his wife Chris. I hope the children enjoy thinking about the Christian value Trust and also the Bible story of The Sower.

If the children would like to write a reflective prayer following this, it would be most welcome and please can you forward a copy to school where we can collate them in our special prayer books.

 

Best wishes to you all,

Hi Dragonfly Class

 

We’re now in the last bit of our summer term – time has certainly flown and it feels ages since we were together! I hope you are all well and enjoying this lovely sunshine.

 

I am really missing seeing all of you so I will be emailing you a link for a Zoom meeting on Friday – Y4 at 9.30am and Y3 at 10.30am. We can do a bit of a show and tell so have something you would like to share with the group and we can all see what everyone has been doing. I’m looking forward to it already!

 

Attached is more lovely home learning for you to enjoy. We’ve gone for a bit of a maths focus this week, but there are some other super things to do in the packs. I have been super impressed with how much you are doing at home, so please keep it up and do remember to share it on either Dojo or by email.

 

Also, we are going to be doing a June Challenge. Have a look at the sheet and get someone to take pictures or video of you doing it. You can put it on Class Dojo, or you can email it to me, or both!

 

The last chapter of our book ‘Pugs of the Frozen North’ will be on Dojo tomorrow so look out of for that. You can now comment on anything in the class story so feel free to tell me what you thought of the book.

 

Active Learn: Please remember to log into Active Learn. There are books with quizzes, maths games and spelling games. https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/ 

 

As always, stay safe and I look forward to seeing your lovely faces on Zoom on Friday

Dear Dragonfly Class,

 

I hope you are keeping busy and well? I miss you all loads, but have been loving seeing what some of you have been posting on Class Dojo. I hope you have been enjoying the story that Mrs D’Ovidio and I have been reading for you, we certainly have enjoyed it. If you haven’t seen it, it’s not too late to catch up – It’s Pugs of the Frozen North by Phillip Reeve.

 

Here’s a few more things to keep you going:

 

Classroom Secret home learning packs for Y3 and Y4 are attached so you can print them off or do them from the screen. There a bit of English and maths to do in them.

Pugs of the Frozen North activities: If you are listening to the book, there’s a sheet to help you draw the perfect pug! Please send me your drawings on Dojo or email.

Also if you were to get to the icicle palace, what would you wish for and why? Tell me what you would wish for and draw a picture to go with it.

BBC Bitesize: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zmyxxyc/year-3-and-p4-lessons/1 lessons every day for you to do. English and maths plus other subjects. 

Active Learn: Please remember to log into Active Learn. There are books with quizzes, maths games and spelling games. Lots of you have not been accessing this and it really is great fun! I can add more things when you’ve completed the ones on there. https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/ 

Romans: Have a go at some Roman Numerals. Attached is a sheet to help you with the activities. If you complete them perhaps you could have a go at doing

Times Table Rock Stars: Don’t forget about this lovely little app! Get those tables tip top!

 

Kilve: Y4 I know today we were supposed to be going on our amazing residential. It is very sad we can’t go. I will be sending a zoom link for Friday afternoon so we can at least say hi to each other and pretend we’ve had an amazing adventure. You can tell me what you’ve been doing. I will send a separate email about that so look out for that!

 

Please take care of each other and keep sending me all the wonderful things you are doing – school wise or not!

 

Love from Mrs Brayley x

Dear Dragonfly Class parents and carers,

 

I hope you had a relaxing Easter break, the weather was certainly kind to us and I hope you spent time in the sunshine making wonderful memories. I hope you are all well and coping with the very strange situation as best you can. I miss the children terribly and everything about our lovely school life.

It seems like we are going to continue with the home learning so as we cannot be together for this summer term as it starts, here are some more resources.

 

Please do get in contact if there is anything I can do for you or your children. You can email teachers.eastbrent@educ.somerset.gov.uk and I will respond.

 

You are doing an amazing job and remember these resources are to help and not to cause you or the children any stress. We will be back together again and we will get back on track.

Do what you can, stay safe, stay sane and take care.

Mrs Brayley

Hi everyone. Thank you for your understanding during the last couple of days. It has been a very unsettling time for everyone. We have put together some ideas and activities that the children can do at home. We will certainly miss seeing all their smiling faces every day. Please take care of each other and keep well.

We made pop-up books for the younger children to look at about a type of extreme weather.

We thought about the words we used so the younger children would understand and created parts that popped up, parts that moved and lift the flap questions and answers. 

They are all on display in the library and they look awesome! 

Welcome to Class 3 - Dragonflies!

 

Dragonfly class have been creating twister art taking inspiration from pictures of tornadoes.

We practised shading using pencil crayons to create a 3D effect in stripes. We then drew our own tornadoes and used this effect to make them look 3D. We created stormy effect backgrounds using pastels and stuck the tornadoes on the top.

 

We are super proud of our artwork! frown

 
By the way, do you know the difference between a tornado and a hurricane?  We do, so come and ask us!
