This will be our final week of the Summer Term so we thought we would make it a really fun one! We will be having a "Pirate Week" at school with lots of fun games and activities. We will also be learning the song "When I was One....." using this You Tube link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVfVIcW1alo.

There is no Phonics set for this week, but please feel free to revise any previous week's work that you feel you may have struggled with at the time!

 

Have fun Mi Hearties and, as always, feel free to send us any work or pictures at Homelearning@cliffedale.lincs.sch.uk. We would love to see anything that you have been up to! Maybe,  you could even dress up as a pirate and send us a photo! Just a thought wink

I will be at school from Monday 1st and am going to be using the lessons and ideas from Oak National academy so you can do the same if you are working at home.

Minibeast quiz

Week beginning 18th May 2020

 

Hi everyone,

How are you doing? A funny old week this week with the weather, I was in school and even had my winter coat on again on the playground!! 

I think this week we are going to see the sun again and some nice warm days so make the most of being outside- might be a good time to look for those mini beasts? Or badger Mum and Dad to get the paddling pool out?!

If you can I'd love to see what you are doing (homelearning@cliffedale.lincs.sch.uk)

 

Enjoy whatever you are up to,

Take care

Love Mrs McBain

Some fantastic home learning by Holly! I love your crab!
Nina has been busy practising her violin and doing lots of arts and crafts. I love your print design!

Week beginning 11th May

 

Hi everyone,

I hope you've had a lovely week keeping busy and enjoying the sunshine we have had! Of course this weekend has been extra special because it was a bank holiday and the VE day 75th anniversary celebrations. At my house we enjoyed making posters and bunting and watching Winston Churchill's speech on the tv. (Don't worry I also drunk a lot of tea and ate a big slice of Victoria sponge cake too!!) I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and found out a little bit about why VE day was so important.

 

The website we use for our PE curriculum have put together some resources that are linked to the Tokyo Olympics if you would like to do some PE activities at home. The link is below:

 

https://www.getset.co.uk/resources/travel-to-tokyo/indoor-activity

 

And of course as usual the work pack ideas for next week...don't forget to look at the other resources on our home learning page and to send in anything you'd like to show me, I love seeing what you've been doing!  (homelearning@cliffedale.lincs.sch.uk)

 

Keep going, I'm proud of you!

Mrs McBain

Week beginning 4th May 2020

Hi guys!

Hope you are all ok and not going too stir crazy! I have been persevering with the daily exercises indoors and we have been trying to be more adventurous with our dinner choices and taking turns to cook. Pippa and I made a very yummy spaghetti bolognese and then she wrote some instructions about how to do it. We’ve also made lots of cookies this week (coconut and chocolate chip) as the weather has not been so great. Trouble is I’m now eating them…..!

I hope you are finding the work packs useful, remember don’t feel you have to do all of it. If there is something that you see and you fancy doing that instead- go ahead! We’ve had a few days where playing a game or getting out on our bikes has blown the cobwebs away a bit especially when you feel a bit up and down.

There’s loads of great things to explore on the internet, Twinkl has some brilliant things and BBC Bitesize has some fun video clips and interactive activities you can play. Don’t forget to send a message or a photo of anything you are doing to homelearning@cliffedale.school.lincs.uk

Below are the work packs for next week including English, Maths, Topic and Science. Next Friday (8th May) is VE day, so maybe you could find out a bit about this? We’ve added some resources and ideas for you to look at at home too if you wish! I hope you enjoy your week and the sun again hopefully!

Take care,

Love Mrs McBain

Week beginning 27th April 2020

Hi everyone,

Hope you have had a good week and have managed to keep yourselves busy! It's been lovely outside in the sunshine and my children and I have really enjoyed exercising outside and going for bike rides with our dog Poppy.

I have also been in school this week working on the work packs which you have been looking at at home. Below is the new pack for next week including some English, Maths, Topic and Science tasks. There is also a new phonics pack too! Again try your best, don't try to do everything and be inventive if you feel like it! We would love to see any of the things you have been up to (homelearning@cliffedale.lincs.sch.uk).

Don't forget to use some of the website resources on our home learning page which can be found under the parents tab. I've enjoyed using BBC Bitesize this week and Oak Primary academy with my daughter Pippa.

 

Take care and keep safe- I look forward to seeing you all soon,

Mrs McBain 

Topic overview Term 5/6

Hi Year 1 and 2!

 

We hope you are all staying safe and keeping busy at home. Hopefully you had a lovely Easter, resting and eating chocolate and were able to get outside and enjoy the sunshine we have had!

Below are some new work packs for you to look at for this term. There are a mixture of English, Maths, topic and science tasks for you to try as well as a Phonics pack. There are lots of things to choose from and we are not expecting you to do everything-you might like to pick one Maths and one English each day.

There are some that are easier and some that are more challenging so see how you feel or use your imagination and come up with some ideas of your own! If you would like to share anything that you have done at home, we would love to see them (homelearning@cliffedale.lincs.sch.uk). The topic web for Term 5 shows you what we would have been learning so it might give you some ideas.

 

Remember to make time for having fun, drawing, reading, keeping fit and face timing your friends and families. I've been trying to get fitter with Joe Wicks with my daughter Molly and have been baking bread at home which my children said was nearly as good as the loaves in Asda! :)

 

Take care of yourselves,

Mrs McBain

 

P.s Don't forget to look at our home learning page too which has lots of excellent ideas and websites to try at home including recommendations of educational resources from the Government. This can be found under the parents tab.

 

 

 

Welcome to Year 1/2 LM! (Mrs McBain)

 

We will be doing indoor PE on Tuesday morning and outdoor games on Thursday afternoon, so please make sure you have your kit in school on these days. Earrings need to be removed for all PE sessions. If your child can do this themselves that's great, but if not please could they not be worn on our PE days.

Spelling tests are on Friday, homework will also be given out on this day too. Please can it be returned by the following Wednesday.

Any questions or worries about your child please write a note in the children's home school contact book or book an appointment at the office to see me.

 

Many thanks,

Mrs McBain
