Term 6 Home Learning for Panther Class
Dear Panther 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 is explained in the documents below:
Reading, Spelling, English and Topic learning:
lasses will be following the same topic themes with learning relevant to their specific year group. We hope this is helpful for those of you who are supporting children from more than one year group at home. In addition, please continue to encourage your child(ren) to read and take quizzes on Accelerated Reader Remember, you can use this bookfinder website to check the level of books.
In order to maintain continuity in our maths learning we will be making use of the White Rose Maths Hub video lessons, links are on the document below; we will also be posting a zip-file of each week’s White Rose worksheets which accompany the videos below. White Rose provide 4 lessons a week and a challenge sheet on a Friday which will be on our Maths fun page 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 (links on the document below.) You will have been emailed your child’s log in details for MyMaths, but please do contact us on Dojo if you cannot find them. You can also continue to do daily practice on TTRS.
Miss Brombley has mapped out which life skills badges you could choose to work towards linked to the topic learning, this document is below. All the documents for each Life Skills Badge stream are also available on the website
Our fantastic team of TAs are continuing to find exciting creative learning projects for you which can be found here

Panther Class Home Learning - Term 5 2019-2020
During these strange times, our priority is the wellbeing of all of our St Nic’s children and their families. We understand that juggling your own working at home commitments with trying to help your children with their education is tricky. For that reason, the term 5 learning we are setting is based around projects, games, open-ended investigations and online activities. This approach will enable your children to work as independently as possible revising all of the learning that they have gained so far this year. Everything you need is here on the school website (although we will set the extra optional tasks on class dojo as and when links and inspiration comes to us!); there is no requirement for you to print or submit work, however, please continue to post photos, messages and comments on class dojo – it is imperative that we all still feel connected in this way. We’re still here to help – albeit virtually!
We suggest that tasks which should be completed daily, and independently (with approximate durations) are:

So far this year, your children have covered many maths topics, in addition to their daily my mini maths and TTRS time, choose from the following activities to revise their knowledge:
Year 5 and Year 6:
Reading, Writing and Grammar
Below is a link to lots of different mindfulness activities you can do at home to try and reduce anxiety and take some time out for yourself. I’m a big fan of the mindful jar!
This link will take you to lots of different outdoor activities you can try in your garden… I made the nettle soup which was actually quite tasty!
Keeping fit and active!
Remember you have all of these options below to keep yourselves moving and stay fit and active! I love Joe Wicks work outs but also enjoy a little bit of yoga too
Kidz Bop - guided dance:
Cosmic Yoga: choice of energising, calming, focus and mindfulness sessions
NHS Change4Life shake up games (these allow you to be creative and invent their own routines to your own music)
