Senior Room Tasks – 2nd-5th June

The pupils have been working so hard on their schoolwork. This would not be possible without your support so I would like to thank you for all the work you are doing with your child(ren).

There will be no Zoom class on Monday. Pupils should complete the assigned activities on Seesaw each day. Here are the Tasks for Tuesday, 2nd June to Friday, 5th June:

Senior Room Tasks 2nd – 5th June

Have a look at our video that we made about how we use Zoom:

Senior Room – 25th – 29th May

Thank you for collecting your child’s/children’s belongings on Wednesday and returning all the books that were on loan. I hope the materials I have photocopied will be of benefit and that the novel will be an enjoyable read. The pupils have done great work on the theme of bees – I think we have all learned some new facts in the past week!
Here are the Tasks for Monday, 25th May to Friday, 29th May:
On Thursday, the pupils will present their project on bees to their classmates.
Please practise reading our Zoom Poem for our exciting video project:

Senior Room – 18th – 22nd May

Thank you for your cooperation and support over the past week. The biography projects completed by the pupils were excellent and our mindful art was a great success.
Pupils should complete the assigned activities on Seesaw each day. This is a way for pupils to show me the tasks they have completed and I can give them individual feedback.
I have attached the Tasks for Monday, 18th May to Friday, 22nd May and a copy of the details for the Shared Education project on Bees.
This week I will cover material to support the completion of the project on bees in the Zoom classes (during English, SESE and Art).

As another week draws to a close, I would like to sincerely thank you for your support and engagement. Without your dedication, it would not be possible to have our virtual classroom.
Looking forward to seeing you all at our Zoom meetings. I will run an extra class this week for 3rd to 6th class together to do some step by step drawing. This will be on Thursday at 12pm.
Here are the Tasks for Monday, 11th May to Friday, 15th May:
Well done to the pupils for uploading more items this week on Seesaw. Pupils should aim to upload at least one item each day.

Thank you for all your support and engagement this week. I can see that the pupils are becoming very responsible for their learning and they show great interest in the material we cover in our Zoom meetings.

There will be no Zoom class on Monday as it is a Bank Holiday. Zoom classes will resume as normal on Tuesday. Here are the Tasks for Tuesday, 5th May to Friday, 8th May.
