Key information for Summer 2

Arrival and collection

Remember, we need to arrive into school at 9.00am each morning and our collection time is 3.00pm. Parents with siblings are encouraged to drop off/pick up at the later time.

What to bring to school

We need to try to limit what we bring from home at the moment. The children should bring in a water bottle which they will take home each day as well as their packed lunch (if they do not receive a school lunch). These will be kept at/under their desk. They can also bring in their own hand gel if they wish. They do not need any other equipment such as pencil cases, stationary etc as they will have everything they need at their own desk.

PE days

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. On these days, the children should come into school wearing their PE kit. They do not need to bring in their normal school uniform to get changed into, they will just stay in their PE kit all day. As the vast majority of our PE needs to take place outdoors, they should wear their normal PE t-shirt and a tracksuit/appropriate sports clothing that is suitable for all weather.

Homework

We will do Homework over a fortnightly period.

So, one week we will have a Maths and an English task to complete in our Homework books. These will go home on a Monday, to be returned the following Monday. Homework books then need to be quarantined before they are marked so the children will get their Homework books back on the following Monday.

For the alternate week, the children will be asked to work on some Topic-based tasks which will be in a grid format on a sheet for them to take home. These suggested tasks can be done at home in those alternate weeks when they don’t have their Homework books. We are not able to bring things in from home at the moment, so we ask that you take photos of any finished tasks and tweet them to us @BishopCEPrimary or send a photo on Class Dojo. We will then be able to give verbal feedback and share the work as a class.

Please see the link below for Topic Homework

Spellings

Spellings for this half term are in the children’s homework books and they will be tested every Friday.

Books will then be quarantined over the weekend and given out on a Monday.

Times tables

We also encourage the children to practise times tables using TT Rockstars and there are still lots of online links below that you might want to use at home.

English

Listen to the opening of the story, ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ by David Armitage and Ronda Armitage. One day, Mr Grinling decides to explore instead of tending to his lighthouse. Write a short story about his expedition. What did he see? Who did he meet? Where did he end up? What could he smell, taste, touch, hear?

May Half Term

Last week we had an amazing response to our Twitter challenge...The Great BIR Bake Off. Thank you so much for your photos - we have some very talented bakers! There were some incredible entries - from cakes and cookies to doughnuts and sausage rolls! We hope you had fun baking at home last week and that you enjoyed seeing the photos on Twitter as much as we did.

This week, as it is half term, we are taking a break from our usual Home Learning. Instead, we would love you to have a go at our '7 days of kindness' challenge. See below for a grid of 'kindness' activities we have put together for you to try at home during half term this week. We have also included below some ideas for the mindfulness activity which is suggested on Wednesday.

As always, we would love to see the children's efforts at completing the activities throughout the week, so please tweet @BishopCEPrimary with any photos. By including our twitter handle @BishopCEPrimary in your tweet, we will be able to retweet your photos onto our Twitter page. We hope to see your efforts!

We have also included below a link to a new story called 'While We Can't Hug' by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar. We are all finding it difficult to be away from loved ones at the moment, so hopefully this will be a nice story for you to all share at home this week.

Our regular Home Learning will recommence from Monday 1st June.

Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe, take care of one another and have a lovely half term.

Science/PHSE

Create a poster to explain what humans and animals need to survive.

  • Children will probably come to water and food quite quickly but might not appreciate that we need air to survive and without it we would die. Help children link their statement to the idea that they are animals, and other animals like reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians, invertebrates and mammals all need water, food and air to live.
  • Children might suggest things like friends, family etc. and whilst biologically these are not essentials for life, they are very important. Help children to discuss the difference.

Visit the website below for videos, games and quizzes linked to our ‘Little Masterchefs’ topic that is focused on these learning objectives:

  • Find out about and describe the basic needs of humans for survival (water, food and air). Describe the importance for humans of eating the right amounts of different types of food, and hygiene.
  • Observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants.
  • Identify and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses.

Weekly Twitter Challenge!

One of the highlights of our school year is our Sports Day. Unfortunately, this year, we are of course unable to run our usual Sports Day. However, we had some exciting news recently when County Durham School Games announced that they are running a Virtual School Games this week! The Virtual Games consist of five challenges which are all easy to practise and complete at home, with very little equipment needed. The idea is to practise these challenges at home this week. Then, on Friday 3rd July, have a go and then enter your best score using the Virtual Games website. Can you beat you own personal best by Friday? You can also earn points for our school by taking part in each challenge. Maybe BIR can get the gold!

More information, including details of all of the challenges and how to submit results and photographs, can be found on the Virtual School Games website: https://durhamcls-ssp.co.uk/vsg20/

We would also love to see you practising and taking part in these challenges this week, so please tweet @BishopCEPrimary with your photographs, using the hashtag #CDVSG20.
