Summer Reading Challenge

 

An update for all keen readers,

Doncaster libraries are once again promoting their annual ‘Summer Reading Challenge’. Through this challenge, the library service are directing children from across the authority to ‘Join the Silly Squad’! The challenge is for children to see how many books they can read over the summer period in order to earn certificates as well as continuing to develop as readers.

This year, the Summer Reading Challenge’s Silly Squad will celebrate funny books, happiness and laughter. Children taking part in the challenge will join the Silly Squad, an adventurous team of animals who love to have a laugh and get stuck into all sorts of funny books!

The Summer Reading Challenge website is free to access and features games, quizzes and downloadable activities that incentivise and encourage children to take part in reading related activities. Although public library buildings are closed, libraries will continue to deliver the challenge through virtual services and e-lending platforms.

In order to participate fully, you will need to register your child on the Summer Reading Challenge website (see link below), where they will be able to log their reading and access the wealth of resources available for free on the site. This will also make links to the wealth of free e-books for children to read.

As well as that, Doncaster Library Service (see link below) also have a huge collection of e-books for you to access. If you are already registered with the service, you should be able to access these easily. If not, you can apply to become a member online for free.

We would love to hear about anyone who takes part in the challenge, so please keep us informed via google classroom, class emails or face to face if you are in school.

Thanks and good luck!

Mrs Nile

Google Classroom

From next week, learning will be provided through Google Classroom. This can be accessed through the internet and a downloadable app. It requires a parent to use or create a Google email address as a login username, but it is free and easy to achieve at www.classroom.google.com. This will replace work frequently being submitted on the school website and will provide a means for the children to submit and show their work to their teachers.

 

When you have logged in to Classroom, use the + sign to join your children's year groups - multiple year groups can be joined on each device and username for multiple children. The codes that are needed to join the classes are below:

 

FS1: udwvnx7

FS2: hld2ock

Year 1: ptqg4ge

Year 2:  jn45wzm

Year 3: bkkcc4v

Year 4: itnsnu7

Year 5: mvamvdg

Year 6: d4thejn

 

From there, use the tabs across the top of the screen to see the classwork that has been set for your year group. To join another class, use the 3 lines in the top left corner and 'Classes' and repeat the process.

 

For information about the process of finding and submitting work for your child's teacher to see, please follow the below clip. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LsD1QJEN0Yg

 

Work will not be posted until Monday 27th April, but it would be great to see how many children we can see signed up to each year group before then! 

 

Thank you for your continued support, take care and stay safe.

 

From all at Warmsworth Primary School.

Maths Update:

As we enter additional weeks of home learning, we would like to share with you all a resource to support your child’s Maths learning. White Rose Maths have been working closely with the BBC Bitesize Daily Maths team to make a clear learning plan for the summer term. We all agree that it’s vital for children to be as well-prepared as possible for their next school year. In order to help make this happen, a 12-week learning plan has been established that means children can:

  • make sure they understand the main concepts they need for their work next year
  • cover any new learning that they have not yet done in school.

 

 

 

 

All resources can be found using the following link: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

Every day, there’s a learning video on the White Rose website to watch and a link to that day’s BBC Bitesize page for more information and even more lesson content.

The resources are fully aligned with the curriculum we follow and provide an additional resource for you to use at home.

Class teachers will continue to provide support for your child’s learning throughout this time. Please use the class emails to contact your child’s teacher if you require any further information.

Easter Holiday Update

We hope you are all safe and well. Staff have managed to speak to most children on the telephone this week - don't worry if your child hasn't received their phone call, some will be called next week too! 

 As the Easter holidays approach, we would like to remind you that staff will not be setting any home learning over the Easter holidays. We want you all to relax, get some fresh air, go for a walk, learn something new and enjoy time with your families. Take care and stay safe.  

Maths Update:

As we enter the second week of our ‘lockdown’, I wanted to get in touch to share some suggestions on how to continue to develop your maths skills during a time when there is not as much to do as we are used to. We are all aware, here at school, that learning at home can be a difficult time for all in the family, and it can be hard to get motivated at a time of uncertainty.

As you left school, you will have taken with you your login to Mathletics, which I hope very much you’ve been using daily to develop your maths skills.

Many websites have set up free maths resources for children to enjoy:

 

Mathletics:

All of our children will be familiar with using Mathletics and this is an excellent resource that can be used daily.

https://www.mathletics.com/uk/

 

Daily Maths lessons:

White Rose Maths have live maths lessons at 10am each day, and they provide support from maths specialists to complete the activities. They fully match our maths curriculum and provide different opportunities to stretch and challenge.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

 

Mathsframe:

Mathsframe has numerous online free games linked to different elements of the maths curriculum. There is also a section linked to times tables to practise rapid recall against the clock.

https://mathsframe.co.uk/

 

 

Maths Playground:

 “Play with Numbers and Give Your Brain a Workout” is the motto of Math Playground. Assign students games to play related to logic, number skills practice, geometry, algebra, probability, fractions and more. There are also math word problems and video instructions to help students remember how to solve them.

https://www.mathplayground.com/

 

Maths Factor

The Maths Factor has a variety of daily lessons and online games for children to access.

https://www.themathsfactor.com/

 

Mathematics Shed

This website encompasses hundreds of different activities from videos, games, songs and ideas for practical maths at home.

http://www.mathematicshed.com/

 

Math Blaster

The goal at Math Blaster is clear: “Your success depends on your ability to use your brain and logic skills.” With an exciting theme featuring aliens and outer space, Math Blaster lets your students become intergalactic heroes based on their math operation and critical thinking skills. Registration is required, but the game itself is free.

http://www.mathblaster.com/

 

Wherever possible, try to keep up your maths skills either through online games or practical activities at home during this period of isolation – it’ll help pass the time as well as supporting you in being ready to pick up where you left off when we finally get back to school.

Remember if you need any educational support, get in touch with your class teacher through the class email accounts.

Take care,

Miss Gibson

                                               

Reading Update:

As we enter the second week of our ‘lockdown’, I wanted to get in touch to share some suggestions on how to continue to develop your reading skills during a time when there is not as much to do as we are used to. We are all aware, here at school, that learning at home can be a difficult time for all in the family, and it can be hard to get motivated at a time of uncertainty. However, one activity is easier to manage than any other, and that’s reading – it’s free, enjoyable and can help to relieve your mind of stress and worry, taking you to a totally different world.

As you left school, you will have taken with you a reading book, which I hope very much you’ve finished with the time that you’ve had. So what now? There are plenty of new books that can be picked up if someone in your family gets chance to get to the large supermarkets.

If getting to the shops for new books is difficult, there are plenty of places online to access new reading materials. Many websites have set up free audio book streaming for children to enjoy:

  • Audible:

Amazon’s Audible service have released 200 full length audio books to stream online. Many of them are read by celebrities and include a range of classics and newer materials all for all ages to enjoy.

https://stories.audible.com/discovery/enterprise-discovery-21103929011?ref=adbl_ent_anon_ds_ds_dbb_0-0

 

  • David Walliams:

David Walliams is releasing an audio story daily at 11am each day linked to his most recent book ‘The World’s Worst Children 3’. These will be read daily by David and are sure to be a riot to listen to.

https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/

 

  • Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library:

Anyone with young children will have heard of the Imagination Library started by Dolly Parton. She plans to read a story every week for 10 weeks for young children to enjoy listening to, streaming on Thursdays at 7pm. This week’s book will be ‘The Little Engine that Could’ by Watty Piper.

https://imaginationlibrary.com/goodnight-with-dolly/

 

 

  • Oxford Owl:

Anyone accessing the school reading scheme can make the most of the Oxford Owl ebooks library. They have access to a range of books organised in order of difficulty, many of which come with additional activities to access as well as audio book features.

https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk

 

  • Amazon Alexa:

If you are lucky enough to have an Alexa, ask her to read you a bedtime story. She has a huge amount at her finger tips and will read one for you to sit back and listen to.

 

Wherever possible, try to keep up your reading either from a book or through an audio book during this period of isolation – it’ll help pass the time as well as supporting you in being ready to pick up where you left off when we finally get back to school.

Remember if you need any educational support, get in touch with your class teacher through the class email accounts.

Take care,

Mrs Nile
