Lessons will be set daily in ‘Assignments’ on your personal Teams account from 4th January until our return to the school site. Work will be specifically assigned to your child at their own ability level and will pop up on the 'General' announcements at 8.30am each morning and direct you to 'Assignments' to find your lessons.
Lessons will also be posted on this page for you to see what is set for the whole week. Each day's work will be clearly dated and the English and maths tasks will be set at more than one level to suit all abilities (scroll down to find lessons within the coloured paint splats below).
Good luck. I look forward to being your ‘Teams Leader’ 😄

In Maths we will be continuing to build on our understanding of place value, repeat addition, multiplication and division, with an increased emphasis on solving more complex problems and using reasoning to explain how an answer was reached (and to spot and correct any mistakes made).
In English, we will be focusing on narrative texts (story writing), writing descriptions and newspaper reports, as well as being increasingly aware of paragraphing and using a wider range of grammar (adverbials, irregular verbs, using conjunctions to greater effect), using and spelling accurately a higher level of vocabulary and a greater emphasis on punctuation (including commas, inverted commas, apostrophes, question marks and exclamation marks).
We will also carry out guided reading/reading comprehension and reading aloud to the children from a shared class text. This will initially be the classic ‘The Iron Man’ - starting from the week of 11th January.
We will also carry out regular spelling, punctuation and grammar activities, and expect joined handwriting as the children have all learnt to use joined writing well in the Autumn term.
