During these unusual times our teachers are thinking of new ways to connect with their classes, this is increasingly involving new technology! Please understand that our teachers are working hard to regularly set work for children online and to virtually monitor and possibly interact with the children. This may look slightly different for each class at the moment, as each teacher is navigating their own journey with this new technology. Therefore, we ask that you continue to be supportive during these unprecedented times and not necessarily expect instant replies to queries and understand that sometimes feedback may just be a "like or a smiley face"! If we all work together we will come through this stronger and with an increased sense of community! Happy learning!

Jane Considine Writing

To help the children continue to grow as writers and improve their writing skills, they can take part in these daily (live) writing lessons. The sessions are led by Jane Considine, who devised the writing approach we have adopted at Rye Primary School. The aim is to write a story with all the children in the UK every day. The sessions start each day with a short lesson and instructions at 9.45 am. Then you can watch the movie of the day and choose a chunk to write nine fantastic sentences. The deadline for entries is 2 pm each day.  A round up of entries and the finished story will be shared on YouTube at 3.30 pm.

Week 5 (04.05.20) VE Day: A Journey of an Evacuee Bear Teddies were often given to children that were evacuated during the War. This is where you were moved to a different, safer location away from your family whilst it was too dangerous to stay at home. This week, we'd like you to write a diary entry. It can be written from the point of view of the bear itself, or the child carrying the bear - it is your choice. How would you feel? What would you miss? Can you describe your journey by steam train?
