Emeralds @ Home - February 22nd - 26th, 2021

Dear Emeralds,

Welcome to Term 4!  I hope you have had a relaxing Half Term and have managed to spend some time outdoors with your families.

Last term, so many of you send me so much fantastic work through Class Dojo and by email, showing just how hard you are working.  It's been great to keep in touch with everyone and see your creativity and determination to keep at it, even when it is sometimes hard to stay motivated when we are not at school.  Keep sending me lots more great work this term: I can't wait to see what you get up to! mail 

Just like in Term 3, you might want to make yourself a tick list to work from over the upcoming weeks so you can check things off as you get them done.  If you can, try each day to do...  yes

  • Some Maths
  • Some English
  • Some independent Reading
  • Some PE or other exercise
  • Some Topic work like Geography, RE, or something else of your choice
  • Something creative!

I have left up the three pages of Term 3 work, just in case there are things you'd still like to go back to or didn't have time to complete.  Just make sure you're looking at Week 1 & 2 for Term 4 if you're on to the newest work!  cool

Some people last term asked for printable activity booklets that could be completed on days when you don't have access to a computer or internet.  I've left up the Winter booklets that were posted last term, but if you've finished these and need more, please email me or send me a message on Class Dojo and I'm happy to find and post some new versions. laugh

Don't forget there are other things on this main page to keep looking back at: the Oak Academy Virtual School Library is updated here each week, there's still new challenges I'm setting on Maths Shed, the Statutory Spelling Lists for all year groups are below, plus some other general resources.  Plus, there's a reminder about the fun lessons that CBBC keep updated online  wink

Keep emailing me or messaging me on Class Dojo with any questions, to say hello, and to tell me what you're doing.  I'll try to reply to emails quickly during school days but might not be as speedy with my email replies on days when I am teaching at school.  It's often quicker and easier for me to reply to messages or work on Class Dojo, so I encourage you to use this great new platform as much as possible!

Keep smiling!  smiley

Mrs Lloyd

New Maths Shed Assignment Challenge Each Week!

maths shed(1)

enlightenedWell done to Henry, Sophie, Colin & William, who all achieved Soldier Bee status on the last Assignment Challenge!  Who will get there on our new Assignment?  Good luck!

sadCan't remember your username or password for Maths Shed?  Or Fitter Futures?  Or Purple Mash?  No problem - email Mrs Lloyd and she will let you know your details.  laugh

Optional Printable Materials

Some parents have requested printable materials that can be worked on when children don't have access to online lessons (eg. when working at a grandparent's house).  Here are a few 'bundles' of work that could be useful in these situations and - happy days - the answer booklets!  Most children by Years 4 and 5 can self-mark upon completion of pages if this is easiest for busy families.  (Note - these are quite long so you may wish to pick and choose a few pages here and there!)

Reading Challenge

Print out this list or copy it into a notebook or onto a piece of paper in your most beautiful handwriting.  Decorate your list with pictures or designs.  Instead of reading in the park, you might read in your garden. Instead of a book from the library, you might read something online or download something to read on a tablet or e-reader.  How many things can you tick off the list by the end of your two weeks at home?
