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!


This page is for Sharks class and will be used to share information, work & projects for home learning.

 

Firstly, well done to Sharks class for such fantastic progress since the start of the year

-  your behaviour, attitude to learning and the learning itself has improved so much!

I know you will continue to practise at home to keep this up!

Mental and Physical Well-being Links

As we are being told to stay at home, physical exercise will be hugely important and so here are two suggested Youtube channels that you can follow for daily exercise.

Joe Wicks daily P.E. Lesson

Cosmic Kids yoga 

 

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.

 

Online learning

The children have all been sent home with a username and password for:

Timestables Rockstars https://ttrockstars.com This develops speed of recall of times tables and reciprocal facts.

Readtheory  https://readtheory.org/auth/login This is useful to develop reading fluency and understanding and to encourage children to read a wide range of texts.

PurpleMash https://www.purplemash.com/login/ This site can be used for the children to complete a variety of learning tasks across the curriculum. I will be giving them ‘tasks’ to do based on the topics we cover.

Oxford Owl https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk This is a free e-book library for children, they will need to create their own log in for it.

Term 6 Week 1

“Look out of your window, even if all you can see is buildings, nature is all round you: the air and the clouds constantly changing are created by the life of our planet. Look at your face in the mirror, your hand holding the pen, evolution gave you a face, a hand that can hold a pen, a brain that can think. And evolution is the history of nature, a story that connects us all to each other and to every living thing alive now and that has been alive in the long journey of our planet.”

Your Rye Writer's Task this week is to write a poem of any length or genre. The only requirement is that it has to be based on nature. Resources have been included below to help you get ideas, plan and write your poem.

Rye Writers

Rye Writers: This week, we have a very special Rye Writers. We will be writing letters to care homes local to Rye. You may write about the things you've been doing whilst in lockdown, share a story you have written, or fill your letter with questions you might have for them - it is your choice. We know a letter from you will really lift their spirits. More information is on the above plan for the week.

Please make sure you do not give out any personal information. This includes your name, address and contact number. Your first name only is fine.

As they will be going to a variety of residents in different homes, please start the letter with a simple ‘Hello’.

Share the letters with us on Dojo by taking a photograph of it, or email it to me directly if it is typed up.

Week 3 (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?
