Severn Class Optional Home Learning in the Summer Holidays

Happy holidays to you all and thank you to those children who gave a card and/or gift at the end of term. They are much appreciated.

For optional summer learning I am copying the national academy links below, as well as the White Rose Maths link for maths practice or catch-up: 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-4/ or https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-5/ You could choose a subject and lessons to complete each day.

White Rose Maths have put together some parent workbooks for years 1 to 6 which you might like to download and print off over the summer. They have put them into blocks for Autumn and Spring but can be used now or to help them next year. If you feel your child would benefit from some extra practice then please check out this link: https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/primary-resources/parent-workbooks/

If possible, daily reading would be fantastic during the holidays and the practice of times tables for maths. Do also check out the proposed arrangements letter from Mrs Nicol at the bottom of the Severn Class page on our school website for starting back on Thursday 3rd September. 

Enjoy a great summer and stay safe.

Looking forward to seeing you all in September,

Best wishes,

Mr Holley 

 

Severn Class Home Learning wc 13th July

Welcome to the final week of term for this school year! What a year it has been. It was really nice to see the Year 4 children in school on Monday, not long until they are Year 5's now! All the teachers are really looking forward to seeing the current Year 5 children in school on Friday, I hope the weather is kind for a great send off with the children having the school to themselves! Remember if they would like a t-shirt or shirt to be signed then please bring one to school on Friday in a bag and do not wear it to be signed. Come in comfortable casual clothes (and trainers for the leavers' race) and bring a picnic lunch, school will be ready for you at 9am.

The suggested home learning for this week is again loaded at the bottom of the Severn Class page. Please continue to email Mr Brown with completed work at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. but do not continue to email to any of the teacher emails after Friday 17th July, thank you. 

Again, alternative plans can be used this week (and for the Summer holidays if you wish) by following these links: https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-4/  or https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-5/

Enjoy a lovely final week of term and thank you for all your support and hard work (children AND parents). Continue to stay safe and enjoy the summer holidays.

Best wishes,

Mr Holley

Year 5 children of course will be spending the day in school on the final day of the term (Friday 17th July) when they will have the school and teachers to themselves! 

Enjoy the penultimate week of learning and continue to do your best.

Please also remember that alternative work to that suggested at the bottom of the Severn Class page on our school website can be found by following these links to the Oak National Academy (You could choose a subject and lessons to complete each day.) https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-4/   or  https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-5/   

It will be great to welcome back Year 4 children into school soon (albeit only for an hour or so on one particular afternoon) and Year 5 children too (on the final day of term) to say goodbye and celebrate their achievements and memories. I'm looking forward to seeing everybody and catching up on your news. 

Until then, continue to stay safe, do some suggested (or other) work if you can, read regularly and practice your times tables (most important) and enjoy the sunshine.

Best wishes (see you soon!)

Please note that there is a PDF saved for the R.E task from Mrs Butcher for Wednesday 20th May as well as question and answer PDF's for the daily maths for both Year 4's and Year 5's. The activities and answers are no longer available on White Rose Maths Home Learning but the video to introduce the daily task is. Remember that this Friday (22nd) is a TEDay and spellings should be tested on Thursday. A special make or bake task linked to the Tudors has been suggested for Friday. There will be no work set for over the half term week commencing Monday 25th May. Spellings for Year 5 children for after half term (Summer 2) have already been saved at the bottom of the Severn Class page. Please be aware that the task for the first Monday after half term will be a book review and then every Monday so please ensuring you are reading regularly!

I hope you are all well. I for one am finding lockdown difficult at times, I am missing all the school community and my three children are providing different challenges every day! Stay safe and positive and do your best to complete as much of the suggested work as possible. I really hope to see you all soon.

Best wishes,

Mr Holley.

RE - Wednesday 22nd April 

This term we will be exploring the key question 'Why do some people think that life is a journey? What significant experiences mark this?'

Please find today's task below - we love seeing photos of your work so please send them to myself (email on the PDF).

Have a lovely day x

Cotswold and Severn RE task - 22.4.20

Hello Severn Class,

I hope this finds you all safe and well and that you are ready to complete some more learning at home as we begin the Summer Term! I have saved this week's learning plan as a PDF document on our school website under Classes-Severn Class. The Year 5 spellings document is also saved there for the summer term. Year 4 children need to check purple mash every Wednesday for their weekly spellings. All books to work in have been delivered to your homes with the exception of the Year 4 and 5 GPS (Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling) books which have arrived in school and will be delivered this week. Work will be set for those books next week. Don't forget to look at all the suggestions for reading too that Miss Aucock kindly put onto our home learning page. As I always say, reading is so important, every day if possible!

Remember to stay safe, make the best of the weather and enjoy spending time with your families and learn together! As before Easter, please send any photographs to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. that you'd like to share and I shall include as many as possible on the website at the end of the week.

Best wishes,

Mr Holley

 

 

 

Online Reading Resources

I hope you have had a lovely start to the Easter Holidays and that you've enjoyed a more relaxed Monday morning than usual! Although children took a couple of books home from school we know that they will have read those by now and you are looking for alternative ways to continue reading from home.  Although there are many websites offering free books online, some are far better than others.  The best ones are those that give children the opportunity to search (by age or genre) and have a wide selection of books in their online library.   I have attached a document which has links to some of the best online libraries (this is not an exhaustive list!).  I hope you have a great holiday, take care of each other and stay safe.  Have fun reading, Miss Aucock.

Hello everyone,

This is just to let you know that on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays I will be texting your parents with the suggested work to be completed on Purple Mash.

This will be in addition to the tasks set in your home learning book sent home last week.

There are also websites to be investigated on my class letter sent home last Friday along with others that were suggested on Mrs Nicol's letter to parents.

Do take photographs of work completed and send them to my school email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. between the hours of 8.30 am and 3.15pm on any of the four days that I will be available.

Mrs Butcher will be setting a weekly RE task on a Wednesday which will be put onto the 'Severn Home Learning' page.

Good luck and stay safe,

Mr Holley
