Good morning you wonderful bunch!!!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are ready for another day's learning. I am very much looking forward to seeing your fantastic work this week.

Just to let you know, Mrs Smallwood and I will be returning to school today with some of the key worker children, so if I don't respond to your emails straight away, please know, I'm not ignoring you and will get back to you as soon as possible!

DON'T FORGET WE HAVE A TEAMS CALL AT 1.15pm TODAY! :)

Hopefully, you will remember that I set you a DT task a while ago to design a spacesuit. Oliver G has taken his work a step further and decided to make it! I can't wait to see the end product! He has also created a fantastic word search with the year 5 and 6 spellings! Perhaps you could have a go when you practise your spellings today!

Enjoy your day!

Morning all!

I hope you all got on okay yesterday and are looking forward to another day of home learning. I am sure lots of you have very mixed emotions about not coming to school at the moment and that's okay. It's definitely a very strange time for us all, so I am going to do all I can to try and make sure your learning is as normal as possible. 

This time round, I will be in class with some of the key worker children, which means I might not be able to reply to all emails straight away but as always, I will respond as soon as possible. We will keep gems going again during home learning.

At the end of each week, I will ask the children in school to put all gems on our gem chart in the classroom, so that we can count them.Please make sure you are emailing me at the end of each day, in 1 email with all work completed. If I provide answer sheets, please make sure you mark work before sending it in. 

Most work should be completed or stuck into your homework books, make sure you don't throw any learning away! I will need it all back in when we return to school. If and when you run out of room in your books, ping me an email and I will leave another one at the office for you to collect.

Like last time, I will put up some different options for different lessons. Your parents may need to guide you on which activities to complete but if your parents aren't sure what tasks you should complete, ask them to email me.

Unfortunately, I haven't yet managed to make a daily video, as a spent a very long time battling technology to create the maths video (you all know computers aren't my strong suit) but I will endeavour to do this later in the week!

I think that is all for now, so I look forward to hearing from you all later today!Have a wonderful day everyone!
Miss G :)

Good morning all!

As I am sure you are all already aware, the decision made last night to close schools was a very last minute announcement, which has left us all very little time to prepare! Below, you will find my 24hr pack. The pack includes: maths, spelling, reading and writing activities that recap the children's earlier learning.

Each subject has different levels of work, you may need to assist your child to help them select the right stage in each subject (stage 5 is work that recaps year 5 objectives). They may find that in one subject they are stage 3 and another they are stage 5, this is absolutely fine!Please do keep an eye on your emails, as I am not yet sure how the next few days will pan out but I will keep you in the loop.

Take care,

Miss G :)

Time: Below, I have listed some links and resources that may help support the children's understanding of time. Many of the children in Jet class have struggled with telling, adding and subtracting time. Please do use these resources at home to support their learning, as the children need to know how to tell and convert time using both analogue, digital, 12 and 24hrs clocks.

Autumn Term 2020

W/C  7/12/20

This week in Jet Class, we wrote and edited our myths and legends, based on the story of the Egyptian gods, Osiris and Set and the goddess, Isis. In maths, we began looking at area. We found out how to calculate the area of a rectangle and learned how this knowledge could help us work out the area of compound shapes.

In whole class reading, we started a new text: a letter sent to 'my one true love' and it was based on the 12 days of Christmas song. We found it very funny as the author was extremely angry to have been sent so many birds from his one true love!

In science, we continued our animal investigation. We recapped our home learning about animal classifications and then discussed the life cycle of a mammal. Many of us could relate this to pets we have at home!

 

W/C 30/11/20

We were all so excited to return to school this Thursday, after our 2 week isolation! We were so happy to see each other again and Miss Green was very impressed with how quickly we settled back into our learning!Over the last two days, we planned and wrote our own stories based on the Dreamgiver animation we watched during home learning. We all enjoyed coming up with our own dreams and character descriptions to include in our stories.

In maths, we finished our statistics topic, ready to move on to area next week.We also started our new DEAR time book, Cosmic,  by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. So far, we know the main character, Liam, is stuck in space, after telling his parents he was on a school trip at the Lake District! We cannot wait to find out more!

 

W/C 16/11/20

Well, it has certainly been a strange week in Jet class. At the beginning of the week, we had a fantastic PE lesson! We used our knowledge of defending and attacking to improve our basketball skills by marking our opponents and thinking of ways to work within a team. As it is anti-bullying week, we watched a brilliant assembly, all about odd socks day! We then started to create our own songs about the power of kindness, which we will continue at home.

On Thursday, we found out that we would be self-isolating. So far, the people affected by Covid-19 in our school are feeling fine and coping well but Jet class want to wish those people a speedy recovery. Miss Green said she will miss us all, while we are self isolating but she looks forward to seeing the learning we complete at home and the best thing is, she can mark it in her slippers!

Here is a link to the anti-bullying assembly that the children really enjoyed! Some of them wanted to watch it again!Anti-Bullying Assembly Here is the link to the Hanson Box Competition we discussed in class: https://hansonbox.org/competition-essay/I have written the key information below:

 

W/C 9/11/20

This week in Jet class, we have been putting our line graph knowledge to the test by creating our own Egyptian themed line graphs. We used the Met Office website to create a table showing the monthly average temperature throughout 1 year in Cairo and in Somerset. We then plotted these results on a line graph that we created ourselves and came up with our own statistics questions about the data.

To celebrate maths week, we have been learning maths through games. We played some of our own place value games that we made earlier in the year, then played battleships to test our coordinates knowledge and some of us played a timestable board game. Speaking of timestables, Miss Green has was so proud of our effort in the TT Rockstars competition. We were all rocking with our timestables at the beginning of the week. Hopefully, this will continue until Saturday, when the competition ends. Although Miss Green was very impressed with our enthusiasm, she did need to remind us that we must still play sensibly, as it isn't good for our eyes to be looking at a screen all day!

Unfortunately, our workshop that was booked for Tuesday had to be cancelled this week. To make up for it, We had a day of art and ICT! We drew our Anubis sketches and used our shading scales to colour them in. In ICT, we continued our quest to create an Egyptian racing game. Miss Green has encouraged us to practise our Scratch skills at home too!

 

W/C 2/11/20

After a lovely half term, Jet Class were really excited to get back to school! We have had a very busy first week back with lots of new learning! In maths, we have moved on to statistics, which we are really enjoying. Throughout the week, we have been interpreting data from pictograms, tables, bar charts and line graphs. This will help to inform our Egyptian themed line graphs next week.In English, we have moved on to Myths and Legends, which certainly captured our interest. We discussed the different myths, legends and fantastical beasts we already know. Then, we looked at different myths and legends from around the world. We all loved this lesson and cannot wait to find out more!

A message from Miss Green:

This week, the children created their own Scratch accounts (usernames and passwords should be in their home-school diaries) if they would like to, these accounts can be used at home for the children to practise and experiment with Scratch! The link is below:

Our topic homework link: Egyptian Homework

Thanks and have a lovely weekend! :)

 

W/C 19/10/20

In Jet class, our final week of term was a very busy one! At the beginning of the week, we finished our own diary entries, written in the perspective of Howard Carter. We practised our dictionary and thesaurus work, whilst editing and wrote them up neatly, in the hope that some of us will be earning a pen licence. We all loved making paper fortunes in history this week!

On Thursday afternoon, we discussed the roles people played in Ancient Egyptian society, from slaves to pharaohs. We then chose some of the roles to put on our paper fortunes and played them to see what roles we would be! On Friday afternoon, we celebrated the first half term with a gem party! We elected to watch a film and Miss Green brought in some cookies too! 

 

W/C 12/10/20

It has been a very busy week for us in Jet Class. In maths, we have been revising and assessing our knowledge of addition and subtraction - ready to sink our teeth into some investigations, reasoning and problem solving next week. In English, we have continued to plan our diary entries in the perspective of Howard Carter, during his discovery of Tutankhamun.

We all loved our music lesson this week too! We learned the sign language to Bon Jovi's 'Livin' on a Prayer'. It was very fast but we look forward to learning more next week!

I just wanted to say how lovely it was meeting with you all on teams! Other than the odd technical glitch everything ran quite smoothly! I do apologise for speaking 'at' you! I wanted to make sure you heard everything you needed to hear in the time we had, so thank you for listening and sticking to the timing. If there is anything we didn't cover or if anything ever crops up, then feel free to let me know via email or catch me at the end of the day.

I have absolutely loved my first term with Jet class and I look forward to another fantastic term ahead!Take care and have a lovely weekend,Miss Green 🙂

 

W/C 5/10/20

This week in Jet Class, we have been busy continuing our topic 'Mysteries of Ancient Egypt'. We created a class story map of Howard Carter's great discovery, King Tutankhamun's tomb. In groups, we took freeze-frame pictures, representing significant moments of his excavation. Our maths this week also linked with our Egypt topic, as we were introduced to number pyramids and tried to solve them using inverse operations.During our guided reading this week, we have practised using pictures to develop our inference skills. Miss Green was very impressed with our ability to use evidence to support our answers.

 

W/C 26/09/20

This week in Jet Class, we have been continuing our poetry unit, based on Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky. We had a go at writing our own narrative poems that told the story of our class book, Varmints. In Maths, we impressed Miss Green with our addition and subtraction skills. We all remembered how to exchange/regroup when using column method!

In history, we continued our exploration of Ancient Egyptian artefacts. We discussed why sources of evidence are so important to help us discover more about life in ancient Egypt and defined the word 'significance'. We also developed our understanding of chronology by creating a timeline of ancient and modern history. We included some of the historical periods we learned about in previous year groups such as the Anglo-saxons and Victorians. This helped better our understanding of just how long ago Ancient Egyptians lived. 

 

W/C 21/09/20

We have had another brilliant week in Jet class! In English, we have been exploring narrative poetry, using Lewis Carroll's 'Jabberwocky' poem as our model. We had a go at making our own dictionaries based on the portmanteau he uses and created story-maps to tell the story of the Jabberwocky.

On Friday, we had a great time introducing ourselves to our new topic, The Mysteries of Ancient Egypt. During our WOW, we had a go at some hieroglyphics code breaking, explored and researched Ancient Egyptian artefacts loaned to us by Somerset Heritage and even had a go at mummifying apples!

 

W/C 07/09/20 and W/C 14/09/20

What a super start we have had to the new school year! Jet class have settled in brilliantly over these past two weeks and we have all been working hard to follow this term's core value, independence. This week, we have been using our class text, Varmints written by Helen Ward, to revise our English knowledge. We all drew some fantastic characters and settings  based on the book and wrote some great expanded noun phrases to accompany our pictures.In maths, we have been revising our knowledge of place value. Miss Green was very impressed with our understanding of number!

We ended the week with a place value hunt around the school field. It was great fun but also very tiring!Hello Parents and Children of Jet Class!I hope that you have all had a fantastic summer! I cannot wait to hear all about your last few months at home and I am extremely excited to get to know you all over the coming weeks. 

At school, all of the staff have been very busy preparing for your arrival. I understand that you may have mixed feelings about coming back to school, as it has been a quite a while since we saw you.  However, I am sure that once you have been back for a few days, you will feel more confident and ready for a great year!

Along with Emerald Class, you need to arrive at school between 8:40 and 8:50am each morning and make your way around the side of our building, entering the classroom through the fire exit.  I will be there to meet you.Make sure you get a good night sleep on Sunday, as I hope to see lots of happy, energetic faces on Monday morning!Miss Green
