Dear Parents and Carers,

As you will all be aware, school is currently closed.

Notices: 

Each Friday there will be a TTRS battle of the bands at 2pm! Log on to TTRS at 2pm and get as many questions correct in the garage as you can to help your class win!

There will be a word of the week discussion every week. Have a go at using the word of the week to win a certificate!

The Oak National Academy https://www.thenational.academy/ is posting lessons across the curriculum for all year groups. We will be following their maths and English units on the school website but if you wanted any extra activities check out their other subjects - in particular, they are doing a daily Joe Wicks PE lesson. 

Each day, we will be uploading a series of work for the children to complete onto the school spider system (the school website). They are tasks that can be completed digitally or in the exercise books provided for the children.

Children have all login information stuck on the front page of their exercise book and instructions for how to login to the specific websites.

Children will have access to all tasks at 9am and they can choose in which order they are completed. All children should be logging on daily to complete the tasks and submitting the work when it is completed (use the comments box to submit any digital evidence).

Maths, English, Reading, Spanish, Art, History, Geography and Science will be provided online by your child’s class teachers.

What are we learning about this term?

History and geography

This term we are doing a local area study which looks into the impact Bradford Pit had on our local area in the past and comparing this to the impact the Etihad Stadium has had on our local area more recently. 

Spanish

This term, we are continuing to learn food vocabulary. Last half term, we learnt how to say the names of common fruits and vegetables in Spanish. This half term, we are moving on to common breakfast items. We will also be learning how to say 'I want...' in Spanish so that we can ask for food and drink. 

Art

In Art this term, we are looking at the famous artist L.S Lowery and the style in which he sketched in. We are going to explore why his artwork is important, influential and compares to modern life today whilst practising skills to work towards a final sketching piece of a landscape. 

Science

In Science, we are continuing to build on our knowledge of forces and magnets with an increased focus on magnets. We will look at what a magnet is, what a magnet is made up of and what kind of materials are repelled or attracted to a magnet. 

 

We also have these useful links for reading at home:

Websites where you can listen to stories:

Subjects such as Music and PE can be accessed through the useful links below.

Music:

Your child has their own log in for this and will be emailed out ASAP to your email address. You’ll then be able to see your child’s ‘assignment’ that has been set. You will see that there are around 6 steps in a unit. Please complete 1 step a week so that the unit lasts for 6 weeks. This is how we would complete a music unit in school. In each step there is a series of 5/6 different activities to follow.

City in the Community have posted videos and activities to do at home on their website:

We encourage parents and carers to try and adopt similar routines as if your child was in school. For example, allowing children breaks and playtime in between completing given activities.

Please look at this page regularly as we will add any links to websites we find that we think you and your children will enjoy.

Many thanks and take care.

Miss Fox and Miss Crean.
