Our Classes

Term 6 week 7
 
This is the final week of term and the final week of home learning.  Thank you for your continued support, it has been a learning curve for many of us as we have adapted to this new way of working.
 
 
Thank you to all those parents who have emailed class teachers on a Friday. We have enjoyed sharing pictures of the work the children have been doing. This week there will be two assemblies- my normal Monday assembly and then the Leaver's assembly which will be available on Thursday.

Reading
 

You may remember, that before lockdown, we introduced our Reading Races. Children were given a reading race form. Every time they read a book or read with a parent they could colour a section of their reading race. The aim was to complete the reading races as quickly as possible.

The lock down is the perfect time to continue with this. So, with this in mind, if you finish your first reading race- take a photo of it and email it to Miss Elson (he@newclose.wilts.sch.uk). She will send you your first reading race prize and your next reading race.

You can read any book but if you would like to access some other books then this is a good link

https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/books/free-ebooks/

The Oxford Owl links directly to our school reading scheme. So children and parents can find books from the correct colour level. Although, you need to register with Oxford Owls these e books are free.      

Happy Reading!                

 

BBC bitesize programmes

 This week, the BBC have launched a new online programme schedule, to support every year group at home. The schedule came out too late for us to include in our planning for this week. However, you may wish to look at this for extra activities.

 Over the next few weeks, we may begin to include some of the lessons as part of our home learning.

 The idea is the children access a video/programme which teaches them a concept and then there are supporting activities afterwards on the BBC bitesize pages.

Look on the BBC bitesize website for the link to the programmes
