We have almost made it to the end of term 3 - just a few days to go!  I hope you have all enjoyed some time playing in the snow this weekend - I would love to see some photos of your snowy creations!

Welcome back to another week of online teaching and learning.

You should have all received an emailed letter detailing the sessions for this week, the pass codes and a suggested timetable for activities.  As last week, those sessions in green cannot be changed as they are all live lessons but the ones in yellow can be completed as and when they fit in with yourselves.

You will notice some additions to this week's subjects which include music and PE - I do hope to see as many of you as possible in the Friday afternoon PE session!

 

Friday 8th January

Congratulations to our

Learner of the Week

for excellence during zoom lessons. 

 

 Well done for being ready and prepared to learn, for contributing to discussions and asking relevant questions to further your own learning.

Thursday 7th January

Excellent work today Ash class, your stories are progressing so well and I am very impressed with some of the descriptive language that is being used.  

Both the English and maths pages below have been updated with what we talked about today and links to some of the videos we discussed.

Wednesday 6th January 2021

 

A huge, huge well done to all of you - you are all stars! (metaphor laugh)

It has been amazing seeing so many of you in the live lessons and engaging so well with your learning.  I am so looking forward to reading the fantastic stories that you are writing. Keep up the excellent work. 

 

Sunday 3rd January

 

The Ash team have been working hard over the last few days to organise this week's home learning - this will be different from the last lock down as we are giving a combination of daily live lessons as well as recorded ones.

 

Each day there will be a live maths and English lesson in the morning (no live maths on Monday 4th) and a recorded science, geography or RE lesson in the afternoon.  We have tried to minimise the amount of printing needed but there are some maths resources that the children will need to have access to (this can be on a screen).  On the tabs below you will find links to the relevant lessons and any resources that the children will need to see.  Please encourage your child to be ready for learning by having everything they will need to hand (paper, pencil, pen, ruler, rubber, drink).

 

A detailed plan for the week ahead has been emailed to you.  This has a suggested timetable for learning as well as all the links you will need for this week including the login details for the zoom lessons (these are not on the web page).

 

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email us and we will get back to you ASAP.

Saturday 2nd January 2021

 

Happy New Year to you all - we hope you and your families all had a good Christmas break and have stayed safe and well.

 

This is not the start to term 3 that we would have wished for but we are currently working hard to organise some structured daily maths and English lessons for all of Ash class to participate in as well as some other subjects throughout the week.  Please keep an eye on this class page as all the details will be on here.

 

Please make sure that I have an up-to-date email address for you. Parents - if you have not had reason to email me so far this year, please email me now so that I know how to contact you.  The Ash team email is:

ashteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk

 

 

From Mrs Lofting, Mrs Babadi and myself - we would like to say a huge thank you to all those who contributed to our very generous Christmas gifts - we are looking forward to being able to go to Bluewater and spend them!

Thank you!

Wednesday 3rd November

 

We have had a great start to term 2 in Ash class, everyone has returned to school refreshed and we are working hard already!  Please find the Curriculum Newsletter for Ash below which gives details of what we will be learning this term.

 

Spellings

The spellings for this week should have come home already - the children get two weeks to practice each set of spellings.  (The first week they practice in school, the second week they practice at home). They are then tested at the end of the second week.  There are two spelling groups - your child will know which group they are in and which spelling list they should be learning. (You can find the spelling lists below).

 

Home Learning

Additional home learning activities will begin this term (see document below) - these activities are all linked to our history topic of the Vikings.  These activities can be done in any order but please complete the Anglo-Saxon and Viking art task in week 1 or 2 as this will help with an art project that we will be doing during week 4 of this term.  Please choose one task each week and bring it in to school by Wednesday. 

 

 

Monday 2nd November

 

The holiday just seemed to fly by but I hope you have all had a good half term and are rested and ready for another term of learning.  Let's hope the weather is kind to us so that we can get outside at break times as well a for P.E.

P.E. this term is on a Tuesday so please wear appropriate P.E. kits for the weather to school every Tuesday.

 

We ended last term with the children rehearsing and acting out the poem that is at the start of our new class reading book for next term - Viking Boy by Tony Bradman.  Please feel free to buy this book for your child to bring in and follow along with in school but please do not read on any further. 

The award for the Best Performance of the poem went to the group below who were awarded with the highly coveted OSWALD trophy!
