Week starting from 18th January to 22nd January

Hello Jays!  

We hope you and your families are all well and that you enjoyed the home learning tasks we set for you last week. We have planned some more exciting activities for you this week, including the immersion for our new theme on Wednesday! (Details to follow).

The children who have been attending school have been working hard, and we have seen some great examples of your work from home. Please continue to try and send your completed tasks when possible.

It is very important that you complete the activities which have been set for you, particularly the Literacy and Maths, so you don’t miss out on new learning. We are monitoring the online tasks which we are regularly setting, such as MyMaths and Active Learn, so please make sure you are completing these.

Please feel free to email us at jays@lydbrook.gloucs.sch.uk  

You may want to send us pictures of your work, let us know how you are getting on or ask a question. We will try our best to get back to you as soon as we can. 

 

Stay safe and keep smiling Jays,

 

Miss Sprawson and Mrs Fellows

Week Begining 11th January 2021

Dear Parents and Carers of the Jays Class,

We hope we find you and your families well during this difficult time. We have been extremely sorry not to be able to welcome all the children back in class this week, and we look forward to their return as soon as it is possible.

In the meantime, we will do everything we can to continue the children’s learning remotely. You will find the timetable for this week’s lessons below, as well as the detailed plan for Monday. As Mr Lusted has said, the website will then be updated each evening with the learning tasks for the next day. 

We are very much looking forward to introducing our exciting new theme at the end of next week!

Please do not hesitate to contact us at jays@lydbrook.gloucs.sch.uk if you have any questions and we will respond as soon as is possible. 

 

With best wishes to you and the children,

 

Miss Sprawson and Mrs Fellows 

 

* We have added some daily Wellbeing activities linked to 'The 5 Ways To Wellbeing' for your children to enjoy.

We would love any photos that you take of your children completing these activities sent to the above email address. They will be updated each week. 

Thank you!

Rising Stars maths books from the home learning packs

Each child in Jays class received a maths text-book in their packs for home.

These books were used by the school a few years ago and instead of them just gathering dust in our cupboard, as we no longer use them in class, we sent them home for the children. 

As of Monday there will be a timetable of activities planned for the children based on what we have learnt and some new teaching.  We may suggest occasional pages from the Rising Stars books to support this work but the book itself is not the main maths teaching, it is purely there if you need/want extra activities for your child.

 

Due to the nature and style of the text book combined with the fact that most children have gaps in their mathematical understanding due to the last lockdown, it is unlikely that your child will be able to work through the book independently and may find parts very difficult.  Please feel free to use the pages you feel confident with and ignore others.

In the cover letter in the pack we suggested only looking at units 1 and 2 as these are areas we have covered in school, however they may still find them tricky and require support.

 

Please feel free to judge for yourself.  If your child is enjoying the challenge and you feel confident supporting them, use the book to supplement the weekly tasks.  If your child becomes worried by the activities or you feel unable to support them adequately, then please just stick to the weekly tasks planned on the Jays class page on the school website.

 

Apologies if anyone felt confused by the text book or cover letter but please feel free to email jays@lydbrook.gloucs.sch.uk if you have any questions.

 

Stay Safe

Thanks for your continued support

Mrs Fellows and Miss Sprawson
