Hi everyone!

I hope you are all well!

I have had a few questions about the new books that I've sent home (Maths, Anglo Saxons).
We're all at different points now as everybody has managed to cope in different ways. The Extra books are for those who have ran out of paper based activities for Maths and Literacy. We will be going more in depth about the Anglo Saxons when the children return so please make sure the children bring any incomplete books back into school so we can complete them.

Wednesday 3rd February

 

Hi everyone!

 

You may have noticed that yesterday's Maths lesson revisited Fractions from when we first went in to lockdown.  After speaking to a few of you I thought it might be beneficial to go over this again as it was quite early on and you may have missed the videos.  If you have already done the lesson posted, have a go at the Fractions section of your CGP book.  If you find this a challenge you may be best revisiting the videos!

Hi everyone!

 

I'm not sure whether you heard but on Friday Netherton Moss won the award for 'Outstanding Arts In Primary School' at The Educate Awards!  The only way that was possible was with you, the children, being so enthusiastic, talented and willing to learn.  So congratulations to you all, you are all superstars (I think our Thriller dance had a helping hand too!) Well done!

Thursday 28th January

 

Hi everyone!

 

I hope you're all well.  I've managed to speak to most of you this week but please feel free to message on Class Dojo if you need anything!

 

This afternoon is Geography on your timetable, in your pack there is a map of the Americas, which is our Topic and we'll be going into more depth throughout the rest of the term.  If you could please label the map and if you have time research some of the different areas (Maybe choose 1 or 2).  We will be specifically looking at North America which is such an interesting place due to the diverse number of ecosystems they have.

At the last check around only 50% of Americans actually hald a passport to travel to different countries, why do you think that might be? (There's actually a very good reason!)

Tuesday 26th January

 

Hi Everyone!

 

I just want to say another big well done to all of you for the effort and the high quality work that I have seen so far.  You are all doing so well in these unprecedented times.  Remember that the people at home with you are doing their absolute best to help, sometimes that means that they don't tell you the answer because they want you to work it out for yourself! Please don't get upset or frustrated with them, they love you and want to see you be the best person you can be.  They might be trying to do their own work too, so that you have a lovely warm house to live in and food on your table.  They may be looking after other members of your family.  It would be lovely for you to take some time to say how grateful you are to have them help you with your work, cook your breakfast, lunch, tea or clean the house.  It doesn't cost a lot to say thank you but it can mean so much to the people at home that love you.

Monday 25th January

 

Hi Everyone!

 

On another frosty, winter morning, Ruby class have woken up in a great mood, motivated and ready to make the most of their day at home school!  (I hope you enjoyed my fronted adverbial!)

 

Remember there are packs of work for the afternoons over the next 2 weeks to pick up from the office.  Each afternoon I will post on the website and Class Dojo which work from the pack I would like you to complete.  Resources will also be given to support the completion of that work.

 

Please find the lesson links for the appropriate group below:

Mrs Ray Literacy  https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-write-the-opening-of-a-narrative-6xk36r

 

Please make sure that you pause the video when asked and complete the activities set.

 

Just to prevent any confusion I have uploaded the timetable for the next two weeks, it is the same as the last timetable, however as you are all up to different pages I haven't included any page numbers.  I will post the resources and which sheet I would like to do in the afternoon from your pack between 12pm and 1pm each day.  

Today in the afternoon you can go on different Education City and Purple Mash activities.  Keep active using P.E. with Joe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDvjqO2VXa8
Then carry on with your reading comprehensions.  If you have completed the ones you have, I have put extras in your new packs.

 

Well done everyone! Have a great day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friday 22nd January

 

Hi everyone!

 

Paper based afternoon work will be available to collect today from the office!  Continue to use the timetable you have for when to do different subjects. I will post on the website and Class Dojo to explain which sheet is for which subject and when to do it. There will also be some interactive resources to go with some of the paper based activities available from Class Dojo on the day that it is set.

 

Well done to those who have sent in pictures showing me your work and I'm really pleased with the notes taken from the Oak Academy videos I think it will really boost your learning while you're at home.

 

Please find the resources for today's Maths and Literacy below:

History  21/01/21

 

This afternoon we are continuing to look at influential people and their lives.  Last week we looked at Dr Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks and today we are looking at Barack Obama, the 44th President of the USA.
Please follow the PowerPoint and use your orange books to complete the activity set.

 

 

Thursday 21st January

 

Hi everyone!

 

I hope you're all well!

Don't forget that there will be extra work for the afternoons over the next two weeks available from the office tomorrow (Friday).

 

Continue to use your CGP books in the mornings and try to stick to 2 pages a day to target specific areas.

Each video I post from the Oak academy is a lesson and the children should be able to watch, listen, pause (when it asks them to) and do the activity set.  Each video takes about 45 minutes to an hour to complete if done properly and they don't necessarily need adult help as everything is explained and answered by the expert giving the lesson.  They should be completing the activities and doing any workings out in their orange book.

I have also made sure that the lessons match the children's needs by assigning them to a specific group, the children know which group they are in and this benefits them most. 

If you have any questions please feel free to message me on Class Dojo or email me at gjohnson@nethertonmoss.co.uk .

Hi everyone!

Because today is Dr Martin Luther King Day. I have planned this activity for you about Dr Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks. These are two very influential figures in history.

The document below explains who these people are and what their people did which really made a difference to the world today.

I have also recorded myself reading from one of my favourite poems which fit perfectly in with this topic. Please find this underneath also.

I look forward to seeing all your fabulous work!

Tuesday 12th January 

 

Happy Tuesday!

 

You're all doing really well and I'm proud of how you are all giving the things I've set your best go.

 

Just another question that was raised today that others might be thinking, is that it says reading and then complete reading journal.  This can be one of two tasks, either your CGP comprehension book if you don't have one it's the worksheets with a story/text and questions asking about that story/text.  The second option is to read a book you have at home, you've found on the internet or another research task.  Then in your orange book write about what you've read and adults can also write questions for you about it to see if you've understood it.

On Education City I can see the children's marks and whether they have completed the activity.

 

 

A Christmas Thriller!

 

This half term as part of our P.E. curriculum we've been doing a bit of dancing!

After a very interesting talk about different songs and what the children liked, we decided to try our hand (and feet) at Michael Jackson's timeless classic, Thriller!

 

The children have absolutely loved learning the routine, and came up with their own moves in small groups.

 

After a few lessons it became clear that this needed to be filmed and shown to adults at home as I for one could not be prouder of the effort, time and thought that the children had put into it.

 

Ruby Class also inspired the video edit too, during an ICT lesson they came up with ideas on how to do it and the results are incredible.

 

So here it is! Please enjoy 'A Christmas Thriller'!

Christmas Dinner!

 

We loved our Christmas dinner and enjoyed being able to eat it together as a Ruby Class family, which is what Christmas is all about!

Thank you to all the staff who made this possible, it was sooooo tasty!

Mayan Tortillas!

 

As part of our Ancient Mayan Culture topic we decided to try an authentic Mayan tortilla recipe to see what it would have tasted like almost 5000 years ago!

 

Then we tried the modern style Mexican Fajita with vegetables such as peppers, onions and courgette, to taste the difference!

 

We enjoyed making our tortillas but the main feedback about the Mayan recipe was that it tasted like 'Play doh' so I don't think anybody will be asking to make it at home!

 

The Fajitas however, went down a treat and we took photographic evidence in case anyone tries to tell you that they don't like vegetables! Have a look below!

 

 

ICT

 

This term we are learning how to code and we have started to design our own programmes to show a simple story!

Science

 

In Science this term our topic is Earth and Space!

 

We’ve been learning about how we gather scientific evidence and how we know that the Earth and Moon spherical.

Autumn half term award winners!

 

Well done to all those that received an award this half term, we’re all very proud!


Don’t forget there are plenty of opportunities to be awarded a certificate throughout the year.

We now have our Mayan display set up in our room.

Well done everyone!

15/10/20

We've been working really hard the last few weeks studying the wonderous world of the Maya Civilisation.  We've discovered lots of things about them such as the different masks they used for different festivals and celebrations! We've been busy making some, take a look and the fantastic art from some of our children.  Don't worry if you don't see your child's work as it might not be quite finished yet, there will be lots more photos to follow!

 

 

Tuesday 29th September

 

We've had a great start to the year so far!

 

We've really enjoyed reading the Demon Dentist and are looking forward to what happens to Alfie!

 

We've started to learn about the Maya and found out about how plants reproduce!

 

And Place Value in Maths as shown below!

 

Could all parents please make sure they have filled out the Information update form if you haven't already to make sure we have the most recent phone details so that we can get in touch if needed.  Don't forget to fill out the ICT form on the back.  Thank you to all those who have already given this in.

Welcome Back!!

 

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to school on Thursday 3rd September!

 

As you may be aware Mr Johnson injured his knee just before we broke up and had to have surgery on it yesterday 26/08/20.  He will therefore be off for the first two weeks of school and will be returning on the 17th September.  

 

Mr Halpin who the children know well will be covering for Mr Johnson while he is recovering and of course Mrs Ray will be there as always!

 

 

 

 

 

Returning to school!

 

I can understand that returning to school, into a new Year Group and after a prolonged period of absence there may be a few concerns and worries that you or your children may have.

I realise you may have some questions and I want to try and answer them here however if you'd like to contact me with any further questions please email me on gjohnson@nethertonmoss.co.uk ( I will still be available to contact via email while I'm off).

 

There are hand washing stations set up outside the building and inside classrooms for children to wash their hands regularly.

 

The children will stay in their class bubbles and will not come into contact with other year groups at any point during the day.

 

Children will be encouraged to social distance at all times including play times.

 

The children will each receive their own pencil case with the equipment they need in school in.

 

We ask that the only objects brought into school from home are packed lunches or medical equipment such as inhalers.

 

Everything that the children touch will be washed regularly.

 

Children are also required to be dropped off and picked up from school, they can't walk by themselves.

 

Below I've posted some pictures of how the classroom will be set out.
