Hello Everyone,

 

Update on Outdoor Learning at HFS

 

In the early morning hours, long before anyone was up, Mr Fyfe and his wife recorded the dawn chorus (yes, the birds have their own choir smiley) in the HFS nature area.  Mr Fyfe has kindly cleared the whole area to welcome wildlife to HFS and to welcome you when you return to school.  As we enter a new month, there will be changes to spot in your garden and local area.  Please open the link below to watch the video clip from the RSPB about small creatures.  Please let me know if you have anything to report on the class email account.  Use the title 'Report for Mrs Lonergan' and your teachers will pass it to me.  Remember that your parents need to be responsible for emails sent to your teachers.

Thanks!  I can't wait to hear from you!

 

Mrs Lonergan

Outdoor Learning Lead

PE activities:

Please log in to the following website and go to the Parent Zone to access a range of suitable PE activities from the North West Essex School Sports Partnership.

Here are some of the GPS and Maths Mysteries that we love doing in class, too.

I am also uploading Pirate Game sheets and Powerpoint - this would be a great game to play with your family!

The most important things to continue daily are:

* Reading: All children are able to log into 

https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html using their AR log in details. On this site, the children will be able to access a huge variety of different books - all at the correct reading level for them. After reading the book, your child will be able to access and complete the AR quiz for their book.

Hearing your child read and discuss texts read - re-read books from home, read cookery books, instructions to games, magazines, etc if your school books are completed.  If your child finishes their school book, they can write a Book Review.

* Times Tables: Learning their times tables by heart and then practising theses on the TTRS website.  Their logins are in their Reading Record Books.

* Spellings: Spelling Shed will have the spellings to be practising in your class set up each week.  You can test your child's spellings in sentences at the end of a week to see what they have remembered.  This is a good time to practise joined neat handwriting presentation while they learn the new spellings also.  Play as many games as possible online using their logins.

RE

Dear all. In these troubling times our faith becomes all the more important to us. On our 'Our Faith' page I have added many resources for RE that include prayers, Easter Stories, Learning resources and much more that you can share/do with your child. These resources are updated weekly. Please click on the link below, which will take you directly to Our Faith page.

Hello Key Stage Two,

I hope that this finds you well. I’ve been thinking that this is an ideal time to learn more Spanish. I miss being able to meet you to do this but I hope that you might like some of the activities attached to work on at home. Mostly, see this time as an opportunity to learn a skill that you always wanted to learn but rarely had time to focus on. Spanish could be this skill! Year six, this will keep you well prepared for secondary school too. Keep well, keep happy and take good care.

Hasta pronto!
