Housman update 7.5.21

Another super week in Housman Class!

The Year 3 pupils have been learning basic first aid skills whilst the Year 4 pupils have been learning about how their body changes as they grow up.

We have also been having fun in our outdoor area over the last few weeks.

Woodland Fun 

Friday fun!

Hello all,

We have had a busy week in Housman Class! Learning this week has included: creating moving pictures in Design and Technology, learning to use inverted commas in English and ending the week with toasting marshmallows around the fire.

Enjoy your long weekend! See you Tuesday.

 

 

First Week Back

We have had a super first week back. The children have been telling us all about their Easter holidays; new trampolines, family visits and eating lots of Easter eggs!

They have completed some super english work and their mathematical skills are coming on brilliantly; the Year 3 children have been working on their column addition and the year 4 children have been tackling some tricky division questions.

We have created moving pictures.

We have enjoyed learning the skills needed to play rounders.

End of term message

Just a note to wish you all a very happy Easter. As always, your children have been a pleasure to teach and an absolute credit to you.

Have a restful couple of weeks and we look forward to welcoming everyone back after the break ( fingers crossed we have some lovely weather!).

Take care and stay safe,

The Housman Teaching Team

 

PE Kits

Please can you ensure your child brings their full PE kit to school. They will be outside so it’s important they have a tracksuit to wear. If your child wears tights to school, they will need to bring a spare pair of socks. Your child will also need to wear trainers ( it would be worth checking that they still fit!). The children shouldn’t be wearing their school white t-shirt to do PE, they must have a plain white/red one to change into.

 

First Week Back

We have had a lovely first week back at school. The children seem happy to be back with their friends and are settling back to the school routine well. We really enjoyed our time in the Conservation this area this afternoon; lots of great team work, cooperation and most importantly……FUN!

Seesaw Trial

Dear Parents,

As much as we had hoped not to return to remote learning, we are once again in the position of delivering lessons via technology! We have taken the decision to trial an app called Seesaw. Seesaw provides us with another way of sending out resources and activities to your child which can then be worked on and sent back to us.

Please find below a copy of a permission form. Under the circumstances, as parents are mediating and facilitating signing-up and children cannot sign-up unless you provide them with the necessary information sent by text, we will assume that, if your child creates an account, that your permission has been granted. The letter is for your information.

Letter-Seesaw

We will be sending you a link that will have all the details that you and your child will need to create an account.

Please note, that in the short term, we will continue to post work on the class webpage until we fully commit to this new online platform. However, we would be grateful if as many pupils as possible could use Seesaw so that we can make an informed decision about the way forward!

We have also included a Parent Guide to help support you. Please click on the link below.

New Term

Unfortunately, we have found ourselves back in the situation of ‘remote learning’. It certainly isn’t the way we had wanted to start the new school year and we are so disappointed that we aren’t welcoming the 30 smiley faces that make up Housman class!

However, we have done it before and we will get through this again…. together! We understand that some of you will be juggling your own work, managing children of different ages and dealing with your own anxieties around current situation. We can not stress the importance of getting in touch if you are experiencing any difficulties accessing the materials or if you need further advice or guidance. We will get back to you as soon as we possibly can.

Please get in touch – housmanclass@stokeontern.shropshire.sch.uk

End of term message

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas. This year has certainly been a challenge at times but your children have genuinely amazed us with their resilience and positivity over the last few months.

We are very much a team here at Stoke-On-Tern and our ‘bubbles’ are not only made up of fantastic children but also wonderful staff who are committed to supporting the children in all areas of school life so a big ‘thank you’ to them!

Finally, thank you to all you parents for adapting and supporting us with all the new systems and procedures- we have appreciated your understanding and cooperation.

Enjoy your Christmas with your children and we look forward to welcoming them back to school on Tuesday 5th January!
