Teacher: Miss Lea
Hello! My name is Miss Lea and I am excited to be Class 3's teacher this year. I am looking forward to the exciting work we have planned and hope the children are too.
Your child will need to bring their reading books and communication book into school every day. It is important that they are reading every night for at least 20 minutes. Please record any reading that the children do in their communication books as we do check them daily. Children will also be given time to read during the week, as well as participating in guided reading sessions weekly as part of the English curriculum.
All children have access to Times Table Rockstars at home. Their username and password should be in their communication book. Optional homework may be set periodically and sent home in communication books.
As well as the daily active 30, PE will be taught on a Wednesday afternoon and a Friday morning. Please make sure the children have their PE kits and don't forget their water bottles.
I will be uploading weekly home learning packs. Children have also been given their Spellingshed login and TT Rockstars login. Both of these can be accessed via their websites, or through their apps.
Also, children can practice their SPaG by playing some of these online games from BBC Bitesize: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/zv48q6f
I will continue to update the website with further resources over the coming weeks to ensure that the children have access to enough material, and they are being challenged appropriately.
If you have an avid story writer in the midst, The Literacy Shed uses short animation clips as a stimulus for writing. There are also prompts on each page for the type of writing your child could produce.
Twinkl (a popular site for teachers) are currently running a free membership for parents during this time of school closures. More details available on their site. But there are lots of PowerPoints and worksheets to support with the above tasks on there as well as many other areas of the curriculum.
If your child would like to complete an accelerated reader test once they have finished reading a book, please click the link below. This will take you to the correct log in site for Calveley Academy.
Alongside the attached work and the home learning packs, it would be beneficial if the children carry out individual projects and research based on the areas we are currently studying in class.
Our new topic is Ready, Steady, Cook!
With this in mind, why not have a go at one of the following projects?
Build your own restaurant
You could use lego, k'nex or cardboard boxes! Think about how you want your restaurant to look, as well as what food you would like to serve.
Create your dream menu
What is your favourite type of food? Imagine you could make your own menu that serves exactly that! Include pictures and prices so that your customers know all of the information they need.
Design an advert for your favourite restaurant
This could be a poster, a radio advert or a TV advert. Feel free to use your siblings or family members as actors if you like.
Research the TV show "Ready, Steady, Cook" and write a review
The link above shows a remake of the show, but can you find out when the original series was on TV? Compare the 2 versions of the show and review which you think is the best!
I hope you all stay safe and healthy over the coming weeks, and I look forward to seeing you when school reopens!
White Rose Maths
We highly recommend using this home learning resource from White Rose to help teach your child maths at home to suit their specific year group. There are five daily lessons for each week and they provide audio teaching and related worksheets free to download for your child to complete. They suggest to spend between 20-30 minutes on each daily session.
If you have any questions or would like to send me any of your child's work digitally, I have set up an email account specifically for this during the school closure period: firstname.lastname@example.org
