Emeralds @ Home - January 18th - 29th 2021

Dear Emeralds,

Thank you so much to everyone who has emailed me with photos, pieces of writing, and chatty letters about what you are getting up to!  I love reading them and I'm working hard to keep up with getting your pictures on our photo album.  Keep emailing me over the next couple of weeks! mail 

Once again, try to follow this list, just like you would do if we were at school.  You might want to make yourself a tick list so you can check things off as you get them done:  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!

To help us keep our work organised, there are now separate pages for every two weeks of work.  You can find them using the tabs on the 'board' menu at the left, or using the links below.  I will always leave up the previous work when I post new activities, so that you can go back to things you've missed or want to look at again.  cool

There is still the page of projects related to this year's whole-school local history work about 1066 and the Battle of Hastings posted on this page.  Even if you've already done three projects, fantastic...do some more!  laugh

Don't forget the Reading Challenge at the bottom of this page.  How many can you tick off the list?  Can you send me a picture of you reading at home?  And have you checked out the new assignment I've set on Maths Shed?  Can you get to Soldier Bee status?  wink

Keep emailing me with any questions, to say hello, and tell me what you're doing.  I'll try to reply to emails quickly during school days but there is now a bit more time each week when I'll be busy at school with some of our children who are still coming in, so I might not be as speedy with my replies on these days.  I promise I'll respond to you as soon as I can!  


Keep smiling!  smiley

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!)


Try out something extra on BBC Bitesize!

Fancy a bit of Art?  Some French?  A fun music lesson?  Find something new and exciting that you fancy learning about...

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?
