Welcome to Buzzards Class!
Due the current situation, this page has been repurposed and will be used to share home learning tasks.
Each week I will add a cover page for each week with suggested learning tasks, resources for these tasks and any associated answers.
We will continue to use ‘ClassDojo’ to communicate with families directly and you may choose to share what you’ve been doing on there. Please upload any work that you choose to share onto your child’s portfolio in ClassDojo. I may also share links on ‘Class story’ for other fun activities to try at home. Please check Class Dojo regularly and message me to let me know how you’re getting on. I’d really love to hear from you all, as I’m missing the children very much.
Please continue to work on your weekly spellings and your tables targets. There are tables tests on Purple Mash for you to assess your progress.
Please try to read regularly whilst you are at home, this really helps you to make progress in both your reading and writing. Sharing books as a family will expose you to a wider range of vocabulary and can really help to improve your ideas for writing and your understanding of language. It can also be a great way to ‘escape’ and bring calm.
Stay safe and take care,
Week beginning 18.5.20:
