Dear Falcons Parents/Carers,
As the lockdown progresses, eases and evolves, inevitably, so is our approach to supporting you and your families with home learning. Class dojo pages will still be running as a platform for contact with your child(ren)’s class teachers and for the coming term, our home learning support will take the following format:
This will be posted on this page each week. All classes will be following the same topic themes with learning relevant to their specific year groups. We hope this is helpful for those of you who are supporting children from more than one year group at home.
In order to maintain continuity in our maths learning we will be making use of the White Rose Maths Hub video lessons. These can be found on the White Rose Home Learning page (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/) as well as on the BBC Bitesize daily lessons. The lessons are identical, but the BBC provide some additional resources. White Rose provide 4 lessons a week and a challenge sheet on a Friday. The challenge sheets are not available in advance so will be added to the Maths Fun Page of the school’s website as they are released.
In addition to this, the children will be set tasks on MyMaths that link to the same theme as the White Rose lessons. We have decided to do this to allow you to choose between online and offline tasks to suit your child and family circumstances.
Miss Brombley has mapped out which life skills badges you could choose to work towards linked to the topic learning, the relevant skills will be shown on the weekly Home Learning grid. All the documents for each Life Skills Badge stream are available on the website here https://www.st-nicholas-pri.oxon.sch.uk/life-skills/
Our fantastic team of TAs are continuing to find exciting creative learning projects for you which can be found here https://www.st-nicholas-pri.oxon.sch.uk/creative-home-learning/

Keep smiling, take care and stay safe

Last week Falcon Class took part in a remote Sports Day. All the activities were planned so we could do them in our living rooms or gardens. The scores were sent in to Mrs Mallinson to go towards our Team Totals and Ash Team won with 565 points!
