Woolsthorpe (Yr 4)
WELCOME TO SPRING TERM IN WOOLSTHORPE CLASS
We started with such excitement on the 4th January only to be told we were in Lockdown once again. I know that we were all disappointed but hopefully you have enjoyed lots of exciting and important learning in the last few weeks. You truly are 'WONDERS' and 'WARRIORS' with all the resilience you have shown over the last 7 weeks and it’s been a pleasure to read, watch and hear all that you’ve been up to – WELL DONE! I'm now looking forward to seeing you all back from Monday 8th January 2021 when we can all return to full time learning in school. I hope that I can reassure you by telling you that all will be the same as it was before we had another National Lockdown.
I am delighted that some of you have kept up with using Accelerated Reader in Spring Term 1 and there will be certificates to give out when we return. I also know a number of you enjoyed reading some online books using EPIC. Don't forget that you can now do quizzes online at home once a reading book is finished - it is important that these are done independently and I look forward to seeing your progress through these next few weeks. We can all begin reading our wide range of books that we have in school from Monday 8th March.
Hopefully by now, you're getting a little more used to the idea of Knowledge Organisers which are available for both our theme and for core subjects - hopefully finding these useful. These will be made available via Dojo for your reference - please look out for these at the start of any term. Parents, please do encourage your child to regularly review these at home - it is important that they all learn and understand this knowledge and have further opportunity to discuss it with you at home as will help them to be able to verbalise the knowledge they are learning in class and remotely.
I will continue to keep parents up to date with our learning developments and give out general messages and reminders on Class Dojo, so do remember to turn on your notifications and continue to check in frequently. Although our learning will now be completed in school, homework will be set through and available on SeeSaw for the children to complete. It will help enormously if you could continue to upload your child's independent work by any weekly deadlines.
In order to see what we're covering in Term 4, take a look at the Medium Term Theme Plan below.
If you have any problems at all, please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org and I look forward to continuing working with you and your amazing Woolsthorpe Wonders.
