Term Three

Monday 11th January

Happy Monday to you all.

We hope you are all keeping well.

This week we continue with our theme ‘To the Moon’. The Key Stage One Team really enjoyed looking at your wonderful work last week and we particularly liked receiving blog posts from you as well as emails. We hope you enjoy this week's tasks and look forward to seeing all work. Remember to keep blogging and emailing!

People have been asking if we will be carrying out 'Live Lessons' through things like Zoom or Teams. The effectiveness of this for Primary aged children is not great as this is far from the usual method of teaching in school. In times gone by a teacher addressing the whole class from the board would be called 'chalk and talk' and the Zoom approach is very similar to this as it is impossible to gain the level of interaction needed to work well. Also, many families have more than one child but need to share a device and so cannot attend a live lesson at the same time as a brother or sister needs to.

Instead, we are making use of recorded presentations - either ones we have recorded ourselves or ones that are available elsewhere. These can be watched at anytime and can be watched several times if something is a bit of a puzzle. This also means our teachers are available to interact with your child through the Purple Mash platform throughout the day.

Links to recorded content are included in the learning instructions for the week but you can also find our YouTube channel by clicking the icon below.

Emailing

Emailing via Purple Mash is the best way to share your work directly with your teacher. By using the Purple Mash email your class teacher can instantly see your work and respond directly giving pupils the opportunity to reply.

 

Below is a flow chart explaining how to access Purple Mash email.

Class Blog

Have you posted on your class blog yet? Every morning your class teacher will post a point of discussion for you to respond to. It would be lovely for you to get involved. You can even post a ‘hello’ message to keep in touch with your friends. We look forward to hearing from you all soon!
