This week has been another great week at Haytor View, whether children have been engaging with the website activities, making their own activities or coming into school and taking part in activities, we have had a lot of purposeful fun taking place!

We have continued to enjoy hearing about how you are spending your time, have loved the messages and photos you have been sending in, it really supports us in maintaining contact with your child as well as providing us with ideas of other activities we can suggest.

We will continue to update the website each week and you can look to the class pages or the ‘Other Fun Activities’ sections for ideas. Do let us know if you want more, or different, from the suggestions that we have made.

Our school team will continue to call to say ‘hello’ to you and your children, thank you in anticipation of the time you will be giving us. Please feel free to contact us in the usual way if you want to talk anything through,

WELCOME BACK TO A NEW HALF TERM!

We hope that you are all safe and well, that you had a relaxing half term and enjoyed the wonderful weather.

As in-school provision moves forward this half term be assured that we will be continuing to update the website with activities for your children to get involved in. We continue to be delighted to hear from you, finding out about how you are spending your time and what you have chosen to ‘get involved with’ from the website, either from class pages or the ‘Other Fun Activities’ section. Do let us know if you want more, or different, from the suggestions that we have made.

Our school team will continue to get in touch by telephone, especially where your children are not in year groups that we are able to welcome into school yet. The purpose of the call is simply to say ‘hello’ to you and your children – these calls bring us an enormous amount of pleasure, and we hope that they allow you and your child too continue to feel ‘connected’ with us. We love hearing about whatever it us you are getting up to and are really grateful for the time you give us when we get in touch.

In spite of the lovely weather, which has changed a bit today (!), we recognise that it continues to be a complicated and stressful time – you are certainly not alone in feeling this so do get in contact with us in the usual way if you want to talk anything through.

Hello everyone!

It’s Friday! Today is the day when you can negotiate the chores you will do around the house for the next week and it’s also jokes day so here goes…

My son’s favourite joke when he was young..

Because it wasn’t peeling very well!

Any way, I hope your minibeast safaris have been fun and that you have enjoyed talking about the maths problems in the booklets.

Today, I’ve put a sheet together for you to help you reflect and evaluate on your week. It’s just a few questions that you could use to think back over  this week to help you celebrate and take pride in what you have done together You can see it here: weekly learning review

Next week, we can look at maps and what they tell us. If the weather is nice, we can go exploring and making our own maps. Perhaps you will create a pirate map and find buried treasure?

Keep doing your bugclub reading and the games and activities but most importantly, enjoy each others company.

Take care everyone. Stay safe and happy.

Mr F.

It’s Thursday 14th May!

Hello all.

I hope you are all well and happy?

Thank you to everyone who is sending in photos of what you are doing together at home. It is great to see you smiling and having fun.

How has your Bug hunting been going? Have you found lots of minibeasts?

Yesterday, I suggested we could start recording where we find different minibeasts. Do they prefer dark places or light places? Do they live in dry places or wet places?

Today I’m going to challenge you to find specific creatures. Do you now know what sort of places to look to find them?

Where would you look to find

  • woodlice
  • snail
  • ant
  • spider
  • centipede
  • worm
  • ladybird
  • butterfly
  • caterpillar
  • beetle

As well as Bughunting, make sure you are doing your bug club reading!

Tomorrow, I will give you an evaluation sheet where you can capture your thoughts and feelings around your learning this week. Friday is also Jobs and Jokes day, so start thinking about some great jokes to share and what job you would like to help out with around the house next week.

Take care, stay safe and do things which make you happy!

All the best

Mr F.

Wednesday 13th May: It’s a Wonderful word day.

Hello everyone!

It’s a gloriously sunny Wednesday, so let’s try and get outside to find those minibeasts and if you have found any wonderful words, let me know what they are, what they mean and if they are nouns, verbs, adverbs or adjectives.

Today, we can be looking for creatures in different places so we can work our what sort of habitats each creature prefers. (habitat is where living things live)

Here is a sheet that will help us work out which creature likes to live where. minibeast habitats

Go out and look in various places; dark and dry, dark and wet, light and dry and light and wet and record what minibeasts you find in each sort of habitat. Are there any patterns? Do you find the same creatures in the same sorts of habitats or do different creatures like to live in different conditions?

If you wanted to find a spider, would you look in the same sort of places and find slugs?

Reading

Make sure you are completing your bug club books so I can give you new ones. Let me know if there is anything you would like to read about and I will try and put that sort of book on your bugclub account.

Spelling and grammar

Complete the bug club activities and again, I will set you new ones.
