As we did last year, we will be uploading homework weekly on the blogs for you to access. In some circumstances, we will issues paper copies of homework to some children. In order for us to check the children’s homework, we have created individual Seesaw codes for the children, so they can scan their own code and take a photo of their homework to submit, and we will be able to see it in school. If you are unsure how how to use Seesaw, you can follow the steps below or watch the video:
To sign in with a Home Learning Code:
Open the Seesaw class app.
Tap “I’m a student”.
Tap the blue “scan code” button and scan the Home Learning Code or type in your Home Learning Text Code.
In UKS2, we will be setting maths and English homework on a Friday and it will need to be completed by the following Friday morning. Your child’s work will then be checked by staff in school.
Reading Records and Reading Books:
Children are expected to read at home every night and their Reading Record bought to school daily so we can keep a log of who is reading at home for our Reader Leader award! When your child has read at home, the reading record can be filled in by the adult who has listened to them read or themselves as they are becoming more independent in UKS2.
Children will choose books that are appropriate to their reading age, with guidance from staff in school, which will be sent home. They can also read books they have at home too. When they have finished reading a book from school, the child needs to bring it back to school so it can be returned and the child issued with another book.
Here are some activities we completed from our German Day. We read ‘Red Riding Hood’ in German then had to work out the German vocabulary in English. Next, we created our villians based on the statements.
Our quiz winners were Jamie and Eddie who got 9/20 right on the German Fairy Tale quiz! Well done, boys!
This morning, we completed our sports day – a big thank you to Miss Lindsay for running this!
This afternoon in Year 6, we worked in partners to create our own animals and chose how they adapted to their environment. We really enjoyed the videos and loved reading the book called ‘Creature Features’.
Thank you to Miss Jennings for planning a great afternoon for us!
Over the past two weeks, we have classified each other and sweets! Today, we moved on to our main lesson objective of classifying living things based on observational features. Below are examples of the tasks we completed in pairs today:
