Home Learning

Hello Elm Class.  We can't believe a whole term has gone by without seeing all of you!  We continue to be very impressed with how hard you are working at home and have been super impressed with lots of the English, maths, topic, art and baking (!) that has been happening whilst you have been away from school.  A huge well done to your parents too, who have been working hard to keep you learning.

As next week is half term, there will be no home learning. Get outside if you can and maybe lose yourself in a good book. smiley

Home learning 18-5-20 

Hello Elm Class. It was lovely chatting to you all this week. We loved hearing about all the things you are doing at home. We have got lots more lovely activities planned for you this week and then you can have a week off for half term while we get ourselves organised for Term 6! On the second sheet of the timetable there are links to a Worship and craft session led by Rev. Greatrex and also some links to podcasts we thought you might enjoy listening to - maybe while you do some art activities or some baking? As it is Mental health Awareness week (with a theme of kindness), we have also included a document with some activities that you may like to do to show kindness to others. 

Let us know how you get on. We love getting your emails at: classelm@flaxbourton.n-somerset.sch.uk  Remember, if you send us photos we choose a selection to put in the 'Photos' section. (Please let us know if you would rather we don't share them). If you haven't done already, go and take a look at what your friends have been up to! Have a good week!

Maths Learning Week Beginning 18-5-20 (WhiteRose 11th May)

The maths home learning is now going to be including more revision activities, rather than new concepts, so some of the learning will be familiar, but it will be a good reminder of the things you have already learnt. However, we completed the Correspondence activity sheet set for Monday quite recently, so if you would like to do something else, I have also included a Multiplication and Division booklet that you may like to work through. Please keep doing the Flashback 4s and watching the video clips set for each day though, as they are really useful!

Mental Health Awareness Week activities (optional)

Instructions for Amelie's Dandelion Jam!


Home Learning 11.5.20


Hello Elm Class! Just a little note about this week's English home learning.  We are trialing the 'Oak National Academy' lessons and have included the last three lessons on poetry.  You haven't been given the first two as they are comprehension lessons and we wanted you to do something a little different.  You may find it helpful to take notes as you watch the videos.  There are some circles at the bottom of the page which will take you to the next part of the lesson.  See how you get on!

Stay positive and keep smiling!

Remember to keep up with ttrockstars, particularly if you are still working towards being able to recall the multiplication and division facts in under 6 seconds. smiley

Hello Elm Class!  We hope that you are all OK and that you have been keeping busy.  We are loving the photos of the learning that you are doing at home- it's great to see that you are doing your own projects too!  Keep up with your reading- if you haven't accessed the Bug Club website yet then please have a look.  Just a reminder that you need to click on the green bug and answer the questions at the end before it shows that you have finished a book.  We are a week behind in the White Rose planning so please make sure you follow the links on the timetable.  Fingers crossed for more sunshine next week!
