Work at home

Standard

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all doing okay. Please head over to Google Classroom for today’s work. Google Classroom is where we’ll be posting all our home learning and that’s the best place if you need to get in touch with me.

Take care,

Mr Myers

For Children at Home

Standard

Hello Y4/5, I’m sorry that you are not able to be in school at the moment. So that you can keep up with the work that we are doing in class this week, I would like you to have a go at the activities on Google Classroom. I’ve set the activities for everyone to access but if you were in school for that particular lesson, you don’t need to do it at home too!

Just to clarify this is just for children who are currently at home. The rest of the class, who are in school, will not need to complete this work. Sorry for any confusion!

First week back

Hi all,

Just wanted to say what a fantastic first week Y4/5 have had. I’ve been so impressed with the way you’ve all started the new year and am looking forward to a great year ahead. Everyone has come in with a really positive attitude. It was really hard to choose Hot Chocolate Friday today but special congratulations go to Matthew who has set a really great example.

Also, we have PE on Mondays so can children please come to school in their kit and they’ll wear it all day.

Have a lovely, restful weekend everyone and see you on Monday.

On Google Classroom there will be a section for you to either post your maths or English work or write a comment/ask a question about what you’ve done. I’m going to keep the Google Classroom Stream muted for the time being but will look to unmute it again soon. If you have any questions or anything you want to talk about, please get in touch on the Private Message section of Google Classroom.

This year’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is ‘Kindness’ and I’ve attached a ‘Daily Act of Kindness’ sheet on Google Classroom. When you carry out a random act of kindness for someone else it can not only give them a boost but research shows that helping others can be beneficial to our own mental health as well.
