New Way of Working
As some children in classes 1, 2 and 4 will returning to school to work in their bubbles from Monday 8th June, we have come up with a new way of working for these classes to make sure everything is one place and easy to access. You will be given a weekly learning overview, where you can go to for links and ideas for different subject areas. Parts of this will remain the same each week (as it is directing you to daily lessons through different websites) and some parts will change on a weekly basis. If you feel it is lacking anything you require, do not hesitate to email admin and I will endeavour to add these.
Also, if you would like feedback on any of the work your child is completing through the tasks on the weekly overview, please email a copy to admin. From this I will be able to give positive feedback and also any next steps. Additionally, if your child is finding any of the tasks particularly difficult I can offer support, through different ideas and resources, in these areas.
Weekly Learning Overviews

This week's work will be focussed on the National School Sport Week (NSSW). You can still complete other subjects using the links from last week’s weekly overview but our main focus is completing the tasks that will be set for NSSW. It is really important that as many children as possible complete these challenges and we would really appreciate photos and videos being sent to admin or put on Twitter. There are certificates and awards to be won for the schools who participate the most and tag the Vale Royal School Sport Partnership (VRSSP) in their posts. Wouldn't it be great to win some awards for our school?!
Each day when you have completed the tasks you can then complete a diary entry telling us what you enjoyed about the tasks and what you found tricky. We will email out our own certificates for the children who have participated in all these tasks and sent us photos/ videos of them completing the tasks and their diaries.
Here is some more information...
NSSW in 2020 will be a very different to usual as it will mainly take place from home. We would like to support families to be active together. From Saturday 20th through to Friday 26th June there will be challenges set twice a day. The challenges will be scheduled for 9.30am and 1pm each day and will be automatically shared on the Vale Royal School Partnership's YouTube Channel as well as on their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts. We will also share them on our school Twitter account and will aim to share the links on the school website soon after.
Extra Reading/ Art Challenge (7+ can enter competition, other ages can join for fun)-
JK Rowling has written a new book called The Ickabog. She is releasing a new chapter each day which can be found here- https://www.theickabog.com/read-the-story/
She is inviting you to help illustrate The Ickabog for her. Every day when chapters of the story are uploaded, she will be making suggestions for what you might like to draw or paint to illustrate the story as it goes along. You should let your imagination run wild!
The best bit is, if you are between seven and twelve years old, your parent or guardian on your behalf can enter your drawings or paintings into the official competition being run by J.K. Rowling’s publishers, for a once in a lifetime chance to be featured in The Ickabog book, which is published in November.
The competition along with its guidelines can be found here- https://theickabogcompetition.com/
Entries are open, and the competition will close at 6pm BST on Friday 17th July 2020.
In the folders below there are home learning activities designed to support the children's learning whilst we are unable to attend school. These activities are to reinforce and support work we have already done in school. I have attached a timetable which you could follow if you choose. If you need any help don't hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of us will be in touch ASAP.
This week in Mental Health Awareness Week hosted by the Mental Health Foundation. As part of this, in school this week, we would have been celebrating Healthy Week. We would love it if this could still happen, but from your own homes. So instead of setting Maths and English activities this week, we have we have prepared lots of Healthy Week activities for you to take part in throughout the week. Please send us your pictures via email, Class Dojo or Twitter.
We can't wait to see all the fun things you have been doing.
