Homework and reading

Homework:

As we are trying to avoid cross-contamination of objects between home and school, we are now going to be uploading homework weekly on the blogs for you to access. 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:

To sign in with a Home Learning Code:

1.      Open the Seesaw class app.

2.      Tap “I’m a student”.

3.      Tap the blue “scan code” button and scan the Home Learning Code or type in your Home Learning Text Code. 

In year 6, we will be setting maths and English homework on a Monday and it will need to be completed by Friday morning. Your child’s work will then be checked by staff in school.

Reading Records:

As well, we will be sending home Reading Records for the children to keep at home for now. When a child has read at home, the reading record can be filled in as before, however, rather than sending the reading record back into school, your child can take a photo of their reading record (as shown above) showing us what they have read or leave us a comment telling us directly on the app. That way, we can continue to keep a log of who is reading at home for our Reader Leader award!

Reading Books:

For the moment, children will be choosing books, with the guidance from staff in school, within their class libraries, to avoid cross-contamination from different bubbles within the school. These will be making their way home to you over the coming weeks. If your child brings a book home to read and finishes it, they can bring it back to school the next day and the book will be quarantined for 72 hours before being returned to the class library. Your child can then choose another book to read at home. Of course, a child can also read a book from home too! As well as physical copies of books, we have also signed up to Oxford Owl and Epic where children can access lots of e-books to read online (we can give guidance of what level books the children should be reading via your child’s Seesaw page if needed). Here are the log in details:

Oxford Owl – Phonics books:

class code: kcq3122

Children should then choose an appropriate reading book for the age.

A massive THANK YOU!

Hi Year 6,

We would like to say THANK YOU for the keepsake picture you have given to us. It has been a pleasure teaching you all. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts: it bought a tear to our eyes!

Miss Cope and Miss Caldwell

End of an era…

For the final time….

Hi Year 6!

Well what can we say? It has been a roller coaster of a year for you: you enjoyed Colne Valley, you shone during the Class Assembly (can anyone remember the moves??), you smashed your speeches during Mighty Oak, you persevered and persevered to beat your arithmetic scores each week, your grammar improved considerably and you were all prepared and raring to go for SATS…. how plans can change in the blink of an eye…

For those of you who have not yet watched, head over to this week’s assembly to see some lovely comments from staff about your time at LMPS. As we all have said, keep in touch and we WILL do something for you when it is safe and we can have you back with us one last time…

Don’t forget, we have our leavers zoom Friday 1pm – same meeting ID and password as always. This is for ALL OF YOU – not just those who did not return to school: it will be another chance to see each other – am sure Oscar Dawg will make an appearance – it’s been a while since he appeared on zoom.

We look forward to seeing you then,

Miss Cope, Miss Caldwell and Mrs Dockerill
