Friday 22nd May

Good morning and welcome to Friyay! This term has been a challenging one for all of us but we have raised our game again. All of us at Cuxton have been amazed by the high level and quality of learning that has been produced by Ash and Oak class. Congratulations to all of you. You have all achieved so well this term and we are very proud to have you at our school. An extra congratulations to the children who have read 15 or more books and received a certificate this week. See the video below to see if it is you...

Next term information

 

We have been hard at work preparing the school for a safe reopening on June the 1st. We hope the information below will help answer some questions you may have. Whatever decision you choose to make, we are sure it is the right one for your family and child(ren). 

 

Home learning will continue as normal and children will be encouraged to do much of that home learning within school too. There may be changes to the activities within school to help with social distancing and based on the children's needs on that day. 

 

A school timetable will appear before 2pm the previous day to inform staff and parents what will happen at school. You will find plans for June 1st already up on the website. The 2nd,  4th and 5th June plans will be added by Friday 29th May. 

 

Unfortunately, We cannot guarantee who will be teaching your children when we go back as it could be subject to change e.g. staff becoming ill/a change in circumstances/staff needed elsewhere. We can guarantee at least 1 adult will be familiar to them and at least 2 adults will be present in the classroom with them. These adults will stay with the group for the remainder of the year unless unforeseen circumstances occur (as above). 

 

If we need an additional group, (no more than 15 allowed in a group)  as more children return to school.  Other adults will be added to create another 'bubble' for the remainder of the year.

 

If you have any other questions please direct them to either Charlotte Aldham-Breary, Dom Bilton or myself 

 

Please take care and have a restful, well deserved break.

Topic

 

Choose your activity:

 

Think about going back to school (If children are coming back). 

Draw and write about what you are looking forward to when you go back to school.  

Talk about any worries your children might have and help them talk through them and know that adults are there to help and keep them safe. Use the return to work social story that has been sent out. 

 

OR

 

Describe the characters from the story Choose 1 or 2 characters to describe. Or you could describe a character from your own beanstalk pictures. Draw character(s) and write words around the character to describe them e.g. Giant: nasty, evil, big, greedy, ugly etc. 

 

Ext: Use sentences instead of labels. Can you use the word because? (copy the word) 

Maths 

 

Starter: Quick fire double.  

Can you shout out double facts..

Length 

I can use language to talk about length and I am beginning to use non-standard measures to measure objects. 

 

Compare lengths of beanstalks. (From worksheet below). Use language shortest, longest, 'this one is longer than' 'shorter than'. 

Can you order and compare members of your family? Or dolls/action men. 

Can you measure the beanstalks using cubes, cars, penlids etc. (The objects need to be exactly the same size and type so they are uniform e.g you can't use a pencil and a car). How could you record your answers?  

Challenge: Can you start to use a ruler in cm? Remember to start at 0cm when measuring. 

Story time 

 

One of my favourite authors Roal Dahl and his revolting rhyme about Jack and the Beanstalk.
