School Closure Information Term 5

  

                                                 Dear Butterfly Family,

Welcome to Term 5!  I hope you’re all well and have had a sunny and safe Easter. 

This term, we are going to be doing a very different style of learning. A weekly menu of activities will be posted on Butterflies’ class page and on Purple Mash every Monday morning. To find the weekly menu and the accompanying resources on Purple Mash go to the ‘work’ menu at the top of the screen, select class (either double click or select the arrow on the side) ‘Butterflies’  and then ‘Work to do at home’. Please see Mrs Smart’s letter which contains detailed information on the ways that we will be using Purple Mash to enhance learning and communication between teachers and pupils.

LEARNING JOURNEY:

This Term our Learning Journey will be based on Traditional Tales. We will concentrate on a different traditional tale each week and there will be a main weekly question for each text.

COMPETITION:

I am setting the children a challenge to read as many traditional tales or watch them on You Tube.  Please help your child to record the stories they have read/heard.  There will be a prize for the winner!

MATHS:

Daily lessons are provided on the White Rose website. You will find the lessons for week 1 of the summer term; previous lessons are still available if you need to access them. There is a video and worksheet for each lesson; there is no need to print these as the answers can be recorded on paper.  You will then be able to check your answers with the answer sheet. These are not tests so please help your child if they need it.  https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning

SCIENCE:

This term we will be looking at ‘Growing’.  A Knowledge Organiser to help you with this is on Butterflies’ Class page on the website.  I will be sending a letter to your child this week. It is a resource for next week’s text ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. Please keep hold of it and don’t give it to your child yet! I will let you know when it is needed in next week’s planning.

RE:

Towards the end of this term we will be looking at Bible stories. Look out for these in the Weekly Menus.

I would suggest school work in the mornings and fun in the afternoons. If you have any worries or concerns or need some help and support with school work please contact me on

bking@peasmarsh.e-sussex.sch.uk

Hope you enjoy this term’s learning. Stay safe and well.                                         

Mrs King

Please find lessons for Butterflies below.Also scroll down the page to find website links, usernames and passwords.

Just a few notes:

Phonic Terminology:

  • Phoneme – a single letter that makes a sound
  • Diagraph – two letters that make one sound
  • Trigraph – three letters that make one sound
  • Phoneme fingers – we hold up our fingers when sounding out a word.  This helps us to hear the sounds in the words.
  • Sausage and Beans – correct terminology is ‘sound buttons’
  • Please remind the children to use their sausage and beans, they will know what you mean! Bascially a phoneme has a dot under it and a diagraph has a line under it. The children will show you.
