The ‘Big art@ self-portrait challenge!

The ‘Big art’ self-portrait challenge!

We would like as many children (and SSPP staff) as possible to take part in our ‘big art’ this week. We ask that each child creates a self-portrait of themselves, in any media, in any form!

Once you have created your masterpiece, send a clear photo of just the art  into the class email account. Then, we will work some magic…

  1. Decide what media you will use—paint, leaves, mixed, newspaper, pens etc
  2. Create your piece before Thursday 7th May, 5pm.
  3. Capture a picture of this and email it to your class email address: example sspp.year3@taw.org.uk
  4. Sit back, wait and watch this space for the magic to happen…

See below for the poster and some ideas…

Cannot wait to see all your faces and designs!

Home learning explained letter

Dear Parents and Carers,

As a school, we have looked at our resources and current availability of software that will support us in continuing the education the best we can for your child. We are understanding of the unique position the whole country is in at this time and want to establish as much normality as possible for our children at SS Peter and Paul. With this in mind, we have created a home learning plan for each class that will specify maths, English, computing, mini-adventure activities and objectives for your child to access and complete whilst at home.

We are utilising current platforms we use, ones that the children have already used and can easily access with a tablet on computer. We have also included written tasks and projects that can be completed if access to electronics is limited.

From Monday 23rd March we shall be uploading the home learning plans onto the website as we normally do with homework. These will be released to parents on a Monday, with weekly activities set. Additionally to this, we will set mini-adventure tasks that can be completed over time and we will release further activities and learning opportunities to you as we understand more on timelines of the closures.

We fully understand that each family will be living through changing dynamics and as such we want to support all children where possible. Do what you can. Work with your children, where you can. Make time for family. Get fresh air where you can. And where the day is a battle, pause and start afresh the next day.

If you have any immediate concerns or trouble with log-ins please contact the office email on: A3352@telford.gov.uk where this can be distributed accordingly to our team. We cannot guarantee response times to these, however will reply as soon as we can.

Keep, safe, look after each other and we look forward to seeing you soon,

SSPP team

Here is a breakdown of what you will find in your home learning guidance:

Lesson/ Platform Activities Timelines and expectations
IXL IXL can be accessed on IPads or computers.

Your child will be allocated key areas to cover.

IXL will be assigned weekly. Please complete what has been set where possible. If your child is finding accessing hard, please feel free to look at other year groups with the same focus. We can check access, attempts and progress remotely and can alter amount set accordingly
Teach your monster to read Reading and phonics activities for EYFS and KS1. KS2 parents can create their own accounts if they feel it appropriate. No timelines for this platform to just be used little and often
Purple mash Purple mash is a computing platform that the children use. There are many wonderful learning opportunities linking all the subjects, including projects across an abundance of topics.

Teachers will assign ‘2do’ activities that are linked to the current learning. This means we as teachers can access remotely what your child has attempted and achieved. Your child can use any of the units, however only the ‘assigned 2dos’ will be monitored and recorded as completed.

There is not time limit set for these tasks, however will add more tasks accordingly as teachers can see what has been completed.
Duolingo Duo lingo is a KS2 platform for languages. We currently teach Spanish. Teachers have assigned activities and lessons for this, where there are helpful pronunciation buttons and fun activities.

The assignments have currently been set for 2 weeks to finish on 10th April. You will then receive further tasks in your weekly plan.

10th April – to be reviewed with a new set of assignments at this point.
Projects Projects will be linked to current learning or from mini-adventures that were planned after Easter. These will look slightly differently in each year so please feel free to adapt if you have two children and the projects can be done together. There are no deadlines for these. On the other hand, it is advisable that the children do some and often.

Once we are back at school, they can bring in their projects/ power points/ photos to share and we will ensure that this work is celebrated and prioritised on return.

Other maths and English activities Writing, reading, phonics and maths activities will be set. It is important that we do not ‘overload’ our children with the amount of screen time they will have so teachers will give guidance on these specific to classes. This will be specified in class home learning plans.
Reading Children need to be reading at least 20 minutes every day. This maybe included within other areas of learning, however we encourage children to be finding opportunity to get lost in a book. They could keep a log, or write a book review of them when they finish. No deadline.

Year 5 Home Learning Pack

Dear Parents,

Attached is the home school learning pack for the children to work through this week.

All children were given their IXL, Purple Mash and Duo Lingo log ins again on Friday. If your child wasn’t in school on Friday, please contact the office and I will send your child’s log ins to you. Any other issues with the packs or accessing work online please do not hesitate to contact me via the office.

New homework will be updated on the website each Sunday afternoon. 1-2 hours will be set for each day, as well as projects for the children.

It has been an emotional few days, saying goodbye to the children, but I am hoping and praying it won’t be for too long.

I wish you and your families the best of health in this unfortunate situation we are faced with. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Kind regards

Mrs Kaur

School Closure Work Pack 5 2

Homework and spellings

An eventful first week back. The children began their new mini adventure on Extreme Earth. It all started with a tornado hitting our classroom. The children thought up some wonderful words describing the tornado and the state of their classroom.

We then moved onto creating our own natural disasters in the classroom. The children created volcanoes from different materials, a tornado in a bottle and tried to build strong structure to withhold the effects of a earth quake. The children had lots of fun doing this.

Today in science, the children having been looking at craters and how different weights and heights of objects can have an affect of the depth and diameter of the crater. It has been a great start to our new mini adventure.

Homework is attached.

WK6

Reminder children need PE kits in school every Wednesday until the end of term and swimming kits in on a Thursday. Dress up for world book day is on Wednesday 4th March. 

Thank you for your ongoing support.

The Amazing Aztecs Mini Adventure

The children have completed some wonderful work over the past 6 weeks on the Amazing Aztecs. The children have become Aztec explorers, where they learnt about Aztec ruins in the city of Tenochtitlan. The Aztecs were famous for the chocolate, so we’ve done some chocolate tasting, as well as weaving, printing and creating Golden plaques. we spent time looking at some Aztec artefacts and sketched them too. During some of our PE sessions the children completed an Aztec dance. In science the children have been learning about states of matter, which we managed to link to the changing states of chocolate. The children looked at how different types of chocolate melted at different temperatures. We then made cakes from the melted chocolate (why waste perfectly good chocolate?!) The children have spent a lot of time using ICT to create presentations and narrative stories about the Aztec sacrifice and the downfall of the Aztec Empire.

The children have thoroughly enjoyed their mini adventure. It been another great one. We are now looking forward to the next one.

Have a wonderful half term.

Kind regards

Mrs Kaur
