First of all, thank you to all parents for your continued support throughout these difficult and rather strange times. I have continued to read some amazing emails over the previous weeks, you are doing such an amazing job at supporting your children!
Secondly, thank you to all of 2LR who have continued to produce some amazing home learning! Please keep forwarding on work to: firstname.lastname@example.org so I can have a look through the fantastic things you're doing at home.
A few generic questions and changes from last week:
- I am now working in school during the mornings, opposed to afternoons - I will be picking up emails as often as I can to answer any questions!
- I will be continuing to roll out a weekly Microsoft Teams meeting with the children. This will be an opportunity for the children to interact with me and more importantly each other. Details will be sent via ParentMail, so please keep an eye out for this.
- Hopefully the videos are helping with home learning, it is something I am passionate about continuing on with to make learning at home as easy as possible!
Below I have added our weekly timetable with a briefing of what we shall be covering this week, these will be all the lessons we shall be covering throughout the week. Hopefully the videos will continue to be a success following last week.
Please try your best to complete the work set - As you all know, it follows what we're doing in the classroom!
I shall continue to attach a 'Self Regulation' chart - this is a little bit like house points, but with 5 to be scored per lesson! I have seen plenty of high scores, so I am glad this is working!
Please keep yourselves safe, and you will see me virtually, very soon.
Week 4 - Timetable.
Please find the Self-Regulation Chart below for children to score points across each lesson.
'As much as possible':

Maths: This week will shall be covering the written method for multiplication and divisions. Please ensure you watch the videos underneath additional resources for a complete breakdown of each method.
English: We begin our new topic! Writing a diary entry. Using inspiration from 'Bills New Frock' we will be exploring what recount texts are, and writing features they include.
Guided Reading: We will be looking at different chapters from our class novel 'The Boy Who Grew Dragons' - answering questions based on the book. Finishing off with a comprehension task on Friday! Remember to give reasons why when answering, and to use the question to begin your answer!
Spellings: Looking at the spelling rule and practising our spellings - Please remember to complete these in your planners as well as the two lessons in the booklet! Y3: looking at the sound 'sh' spelt: 'ss' 'c' 'ch' 's'. Y4: Homophones - using our spellings in a range of sentences correctly.
