Home Learning Week Beginning 25.01.21
Well done Class 3 for continuing to engage so enthusiastically with 'Live Lessons' and remote learning. It was fantastic to see the many different creative responses to learning about Viking ships last week. Please have a look at your friends great work we have shared on this page.
This week we will be continuing to explore Viking Sagas in English and Music. In Maths, we will be moving on to work on Fractions and for Mental Maths we would like you to take part in the North Yorkshire Schools Sumdog Competition each day. Live Lessons will continue at 9.45am, Maths on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and English on Tuesday and Friday.
The suggested timetable below remains the same, to allow lessons for the foundation subjects to take place on the same day as in other classes, so siblings can participate in similar learning together if they wish. We hope that you will get active with the Skip2BFit activities and don't forget the BBC Super Movers activities for a 5 minute brain break in between sessions or maybe you could do your own Fit in Fifteen?
Word of the Day, Spelling and Reading also continues as usual. Remember reading can either be your own book or working on Reading Eggs, but there will be 2 specific comprehension activities set on Reading Eggs to be completed for the end of the week. To end the day, I will continue reading the 'There's a Viking in my Bed' story by Jeremy Strong, which I know you are enjoying.
We continue try to make learning at home as manageable as possible whilst also being meaningful for the children and helping them to make progress. But, if there is anything we can do to make online learning easier then please email myself
email@example.com or Miss Ellis firstname.lastname@example.org
As always we look forward to seeing your learning on Seesaw.
Mrs. Collins & Miss Ellis

BBC Super Movers
This week why not try:
The 7 Times Table with Moonbeam
The Solar System from The Tardis
The 8 Times Table with Filbert Fox
Look After Yourself with Pudsey
Prime Number with Ben Shires
Usually during one Worship session each week the children reflect on a topical picture and question produced by Picture News. This can now be found on the Church School News page.
Each child is expected to complete the activities assigned by us in Seesaw. This will be a Spelling activity, Word of the Day, Mental Maths and an English/Maths activity (whichever isn't covered in the live lesson) plus an activity in another subject e.g. Topic. They must also attend their daily live lesson on Teams at 9:45am which will be on English/Maths depending on the day. You do not need to print activities, unless you wish to. Please complete the template or take a clear photo of the completed learning and upload it to Seesaw so that we can respond to your child's learning.
We will upload your child's activities to Seesaw the night before the day they are due to be completed.
Your child will need to use a tablet/phone/laptop/PC to view the activities set and to use Teams during the live lesson. They will also need a pen/pencil and some paper (lined paper is best, if you have any, to help keep writing neat).
Class 3 Live lessons will be at 9.45am every day. On Monday, Wednesday and Thursday the children will be taught Maths in their year groups by their usual Maths teacher Miss Ellis (Y4) and Mrs. Collins (Y5) and so will need to join the appropriate 'Team'. Mrs. Collins will teach a whole class English live lesson on Tuesdays and Fridays. We really feel that live lessons are so important for your child to interact with us, have more meaningful learning and also interact with their classmates. During the lesson the children will have time to complete work set. This enables them to ask any questions during the lesson rather than asking yourselves afterwards. We hope this will minimize confusion and keep learning easy to manage. Please see the document below for further information.
Helping with Maths at Home
At South Kilvington, we understand that Maths is often taught differently today to when parents were at school and that although parents want to support their children with Maths at home, they do not want to confuse them by using different methods of calculation. Therefore, we have produced booklets explaining the calculation methods used in school and the key rapid recall facts to learn off by heart for each year group. Copies of the Year 4 and 5 'Helping with Maths at Home' booklets can be found below. Please also see the Maths Knowledge Organisers with key vocabulary for each topic and the Primary Maths Dictionary. In Class 3 the children are currently working on Fractions
Current Key Vocabulary & Definitions
A fraction is an equal part of a whole.
Numerator (top number)
Denominator (bottom number)
NoD - numerator over denominator
Unit fraction - numerator of 1
Non-unit fraction - numerator other than 1
Equivalent - the same
Maths games are a great, fun way of practicing essential key recall Maths facts, especially times table facts. Listed below are some we use in school

Autumn Term 2 - Relic Researcher
During Autumn Term 2 we developed our historical skills and knowledge by studying
The Ancient Mayans
In English we read the Mayan Folktale and wrote our own versions of the story.
In Science our topic theme was LIGHT!
Autumn Term 1 2020
During the first half term our topic theme was
In Geography we learned about volcanoes, earthquakes and what is under the Earth's surface.
In English some of our work was based on the book Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth by Oliver Jeffers. We also read The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy and shared Poems Aloud by Joseph Coelho.
A beautiful book for times where you need a touch of hope and reassurance.
