The book exchange will continue to be open on Monday and Thursday 12-2 so please do come and get some new books if it is possible. If it isn’t possible for you then please make sure you are using Bug Club. Daisy C, William and George are enjoying books from Bug Club regularly – well done!

Take care,

Update from Miss Williams

Good morning Toucans,

It has been lovely to chat with most of you on the phone this week. If you haven’t received a phone call yet it is because I wasn’t able to get through so please email your up-to-date contact numbers and I will be in touch.

I am pleased you have all been trying your best with your work and I have received emails from many of you with some super work. Each week now, I will put work on the blog which deserves a well done. It will be our home equivalent of Excellent Work Assembly! Here are our first group of children who have been working super hard at home:

Jason's Writing

Well done to those children and to everyone else who sent me things they have been working on. Please remember to send your writing tasks and anything else you have been proud of. Daisy C sent me a wonderful picture of some baking – yummy! I wonder who will be in Excellent Work next week?

Good morning Toucans,

I hope you are all keeping safe and well and trying your best with your school work. I know it is very difficult to get your brain focused at the moment as things are so strange for us all but it really is very important that you try and do a bit each day. I am pleased I have seen some of your work, remember you can send it in at any point when you have done it. Don’t worry about sending old activities – I would still love to see them! Also, I have tried to make the tasks accessible for all but you can access Y1’s blog if you feel that work would be more suitable for your child.

Here is this week’s English and Maths:

Update from Miss Williams

Hello Toucans,

I hope you all got on well with your spelling test today. I just wanted to say a big well done to the children I have heard from over this week. These children have been using Bug Club to practice their reading so well done to George, Maya, Jason, Amelie, Maarya, William, Harvey and Millie. If you are not able to access these books remember the book exchange opens on Monday and I will be running it. I would love to see some of you coming along to return your old books and borrow new ones. We have a good selection of library books which you will be able to choose too so if you prefer that, and live close enough to make it part of your daily walk, then I would love to see you.

I would also like to say a big well done to the children who have sent me their work this week. I haveheard from Maya, Jason, Maarya, George and Evelyne. I am hoping some more of you might be able to send in your postcards – I am very much looking forward to hearing from you.

I will be making phone calls on Monday to speak to you and your parents (if you are well and able) and can’t wait to find out how you all are.

Take care Toucans

Love Miss Williams

Good morning Toucans,

I hope you are well and have had a lovely weekend. Here is your Maths and English for this week.

Remember to do as much as you can and try your very best. We know our brains are muscles and they must have exercise! I am very much looking forward to reading the writing task I have set you for this Thursday. Please remember all the contact details that are available:

Hello from Miss Williams

Good Morning Toucans,

Just a quick reminder that your parents should be testing you today on the all words that you have been learning since last Friday. Once you have done today’s English you then practice these soft c spellings until next Friday.

I hope you have been keeping up with all your lessons. So far this week I have received writing or work from Daisy C, George, William, Maya, Max and Millie. Daisy also did some fantastic cooking and William made a real exploding volcano! Millie has also been busy learning her times tables which is going to be so important for next year. Well done Millie!

I have been keeping a close eye on Bug Club and am very pleased to see that Millie, Max, Anaiyah, Amelie, Jason, Maya, George and William have been reading lots of their allocated books. Well done everyone! I was also pleased that Max has started reading a book that I know Liam and Jason have enjoyed. Remember you could post on the Reading for Pleasure Blog if you want to recommend a good book to your friends.

Enjoy your weekend and look out for next week’s work on Monday morning.

Take care,

Miss Williams

Good morning Toucans,

Monday morning certainly comes around quickly! It has been lovely to hear from some of you this week. George has sent me a wonderful piece of writing and Max is working hard on his Maths. I’m sure a lot of you have been enjoying the lovely weather we have had recently. I hope you are all managing to stay safe and well.

I am setting this week’s English and Maths in the same way as last weeks. I really would like to read the writing you produce on Thursday so please Mums and Dads, send it to me at teacher@bellsfrm.bham.sch.uk if at all possible.

A note for parents now: I know some of you are finding the Maths a bit tricky and I do agree. Although it is the scheme we use in school the children would be highly supported through paired work, guided teacher practice and resources. If you are finding it too difficult please just try to keep up with the 5 a day questions as these are important for keeping mental skills ticking over. You could then use one of the websites on our recommended list for independent work or even just make some questions up for them to answer. Real-life Maths is also invaluable. If you are baking they should be able to read the scales and work out the array shown on a cake tin (e.g each row has 4 holes and each column has 3 holes so altogether we will bake 12 cakes because 4 x 3 = 12. You could also make up point-scoring ball games where they have to add their own scores up. You could count how many trees/lamposts/gates you see on your daily walk. You can get them to count the socks in twos (while pairing them up for you…if only, I hear you cry!) Our main message is that you do what you can while keeping yourselves well. We will be re-united at some point and things will go back to normal. Until then please don’t stress just do what you can 🙂

Please remember I am at the end of an email if I can help in any way. Take care of each other.

Spelling test

Just a quick reminder that you should be doing your spelling test today. I heard from Daisy C this week who has been working hard on the activities she has been set. Well done Daisy! I have also seen George and William have been accessing Bug Club – well done boys! It really is important that you read every day Toucans. You can let me know how you are getting on by contacting teacher@bellsfrm.bham.sch.uk or you can comment on the blog. I would also like you to send your piece of writing (the alien one this week) to this email if at all possible. I would love to hear from you 🙂
