This is Week 7
(Commences Monday 18th May 2020).
Please note that this is the last week of this half term. We do not intend to set English and mathematics work for the half term break. There will be fun activities available.
Please remember to let the school know if you need childcare for the half term holiday even if your child(ren) attends school currently.
Guillemont Parent/Carers Certificates available for you to use - see 'Summer Term Additional Things'.
Mrs Waldron (SENCo) has a sheet that some might find helpful if your child(ren) finds organisation a problem. Click here. Its call 'Now Next'.
Please note that you are not expected to print all of the worksheets. You may find it helpful to print a few of them. Please read the ParentMail sent home last week.
Mrs Helen Smith (ELSA) will be available by phone between 9am and 12pm every week day. Her priority will be for contact with the children she usually works with. If parents or carers require help, please contact Mrs Smith between 1pm and 3pm. The number to call is 07563384044. Please be patient and please only call at the appropriate time.
The school office is open for calls between 9am and 1pm. Please call 01252 666846. You can also leave a message or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have set work to ensure there is enough for everyone to do. There is an expectation that children attempt the work. It has been pitched at an approriate level. You can talk to your child's class teacher if there are any issues when they next call or email the school.
If you need timetable to help organise the day, we suggest you use the one published previously. For a copy, click here.

Teachers and LSAs will continue to call the children at home. They will also set work on MyMaths, Bug Club and Purple Mash. This will be set by the class teachers for their classes. Please encourage children to use the 'Class Blog' on Purple Mash.
The teachers would appreciate you encouraging children to read for 10 minutes every day. It would be good if some one could read to them as well. Research shows that a male role model has a very positive effect! Additionally, children need to practice the times tables 1s to 12s. The Government expects all children to be able to recall multiplication facts up to 12 x12 by the end of Yr4. Children in Yr3 should know their 1s, 2s, 5s,10s, 4s, 8s and 3s by the end of the school year. The recommended sequence to learn times tables is: 2s, 5s, 10s, 4s, 8s, 3s, 6s, 9s, 7s, 11s and 12s. Remember that 1 x anything is itself and 0 x anything is always 0.
Mr Cooper suggests that that children work as independently as they can on a daily 'I See Maths' video (they know this scheme from school) before you start the set work on the left with them. Click here to get to the' I See Maths' website and then select the Y3 & Y4 or the Y5 & Y6 video for the day.
Class EW: Mrs Waldron and Miss Palmer would like the children to practice their language and vocabulary skills. Click here for the 'Speed Link' website. Click here for 'Thinking Talking' website.
