Week beginning 6th July

This week is going to be "Transition week" at Field Lane JIN School. It is going to be slightly different to how we normally do it, but still fun! The activities in the grid below will help you to introduce yourselves to your new teacher. They are quite creative and fun, so I am sure you will enjoy telling your teacher all about you. 

Please continue to send all your home learning work to class dojo, where your new teacher will also be able to see them.

Week beginning 29th June

This week home learning theme is "Space" a topic that is out of this world! We have done a similar topic, when we studied the Mystery of the Moon, but this time we will be learning about asteroids, meteroties and constellations . It is National Asteroid day on 30th June, it is held on this date to mark the date of Earth's largest asteroid impact in recorded history, the Siberia Tunguska event. Asteroid day is celebrated all over the world. What is an asteroid? Asteroids are small rocky objects that orbit the Sun. See if you can find out any more interesting facts about asteroids. 

Below are some ideas you could do as a family to help you learn about Space. I know you are all amazing bakers, so you will love cooking up some delicious edible meteorites (follow the website on the grid), I also look forward to seeing your marshmallow constellations! Click on the grid to open a pdf where you will then be able to click on the internet links. 

Please send us all your photos and videos on Class Dojo, we look forward to seeing them.

Home learning Online Reading Scheme     

To support our children in reading at home, you can now use the Oxford Owl e-books for free. This means you can access reading scheme books like the ones we use in school. This is especially for children in Reception to Lower Key Stage 2, but older children could try it too.

We are encouraging our parents can sign up, all you have to do is follow this link to register and follow a few simple steps.

Put in your name, email, set a password and the age of a child and you're ready to go. You'll then have access to a huge library of e-books which your child can read online.

To find out what level you need for your child(ren), look on the back cover of the Oxford Reading Tree book in their book bag and then select this level.

 If you don't have this information, you can alternatively select their year group or age for a close match.

We encourage all of our children to read a book for at least 10 minutes every day.

Good Morning Year 3 and 4

Lets start off our second week of home learning. We have decided to have a theme so that the whole family can take part in these activities. Have a look at the menu below and choose activities to do during the week. As well as this, we have started another TTRpckstars battle. Who will come out on top this time? Well done to everyone who has completed work on Purple Mash. I have added some more 2dos for you to have a go at. Don't forget you can try to structure your day in a similar way to the timetable that was posted on Friday. 

Friday 27th March 2020

Good afternoon Year 3 and 4. Well done you have completed your first week of home learning. Well done to Year 4 for winning the TTRockstars battle! We will set up another battle soon, who will win the next round?
