Week 5, 1st February

Welcome to week 5 and February (yay!). A step closer to Spring. I hope you had a great weekend. I just want to let you know how proud I am of all your hard work and enthusiasm. It's a long time to be learning at home and I know that we're all missing each other a lot, how that can make us feel, and how that can affect our motivation sometimes. That's completely normal, we all have days we'd rather do something else and it's okay to take a break and re-energise.

Please find the links for this week below. This week there's a new History lesson; Why do we celebrate Bonfire night? In Math's, it's all about estimating and measuring Length.

I've also added to the main page, another English and Maths Workbook, Workbook 2, as they seem to be quite popular. There is also a new set of 60 second reads below.

This link will take you to fantastic ICT games website, to support a whole host of FUN English and Maths skills. ICT GAMES 

Here are the usual links to other websites; Letter Join, Purple Mash, Fitter Futures and BBC Bitesize

Many of you have connected to Class Dojo and are now sending work through your Portfolio, thank you! This is a great way for us to keep a collection of all your fantastic hard work in one place, and allows us to communicate with you and your child directly. Excitingly; Mrs Gill can also now see your amazing efforts and can send you comments on individual pieces too! 

To those of you who haven't yet connected with this platform, it is not a requirement, but feedback from families has been very positive thus far, and we encourage you to check it out.  The Portfolio is safe and secure - only visible to you, me, Mrs Gill and Mr Payne (as our Dojo Administrator) -I've enjoyed being able to comment directly on pieces of work and award lots of different points, including some from Saffire, our class dragon.

Please get in touch if I can be of any help or support,

Have a great week ahead.
