Happy Summer Holidays....

I hope that everyone has a fabulous time.. whatever you are doing and wherever you spend your days. Have lots of fun and laughs and if you get bored you can always dip into some of the activities in the folders on our class page.

 

Don't forget to keep reading and maybe keep a diary or write a story about a well known fairy tale character.

 

Stay safe and see you in September

Hello Badgers,

Hello from sunny Folkestone.....

 

I hope you have all enjoyed bread tasting for DT this afternoon, I had a sandwich with some very nice tiger bread and carried out the bread tasting task before I made the sandwich. 

 

Don't forget to ask your adult to get you the ingredients you will need when they go shopping if you would like to make the bread you've designed next week.

 

Have a great Bank holiday and don't forget to put out the bunting from Miss Goodall

Good morning Badgers

I hope you are all well and continuing to be Superheroes.... I know a tidy bedroom or a peaceful half an hour are always appreciated by your parents so if you can manage either of these you will be amazing.

I have been crafting in my spare time... I've been making Christmas cards 😀 because they are keeping me busy and focused on nice times I'm going to have in the future with my family and friends and you all. Perhaps you could make a list of the nice things you are going to enjoy once we are all back to normal.

 

Keep smiling and be kind Miss Goodall

Well today the weather is not so good... but the gardens and fields need water to help the flowers and crops grow so it's important. However it's the perfect opportunity for you to try the Class wordsearch I've created. Find all the class members in the grid... good hunting.

Good morning to you all.... It's another glorious day to start the week. I hope you've all been keeping busy and finding time to enjoy activities in the garden.

Hello Badgers... You all know how much I like Disney so I've created a wordsearch as a challenge for you. Why not create a wordsearch for me. Send them to Mrs Freeman and she will send them to me.

Hello Badgers!

 

I hope that you have had a great break , that you didn't eat too much chocolate and enjoyed the sunshine in your garden. I certainly did; lots of gardening and fence painting. 

 

I've planned lots of interesting activities for you to complete next week so don't forget to send in any examples of your work to Mrs Freeman at office@sellindge-ashford.kent.sch.uk so that I can enjoy looking at them and then add them to the class page.

Newsletter Term 5

Hello Badger's parents...

Here are some questions you could ask your child whilst reading with them

* What did the character look like? Can you draw a picture of them in your orange book?

* How did you think the story should have ended? Can you write a different ending in your book?

* Who would you like to meet most from the story? Explain why.

*Why did the author choose this title?

* If you were going to interview the main character what questions would you ask them? Write these in your book.

 

Look out for more questions after Easter.

 

Tuesday, hello to you all... Which  of the PE tasks have you managed to do? How many star jumps did you manage in the time limit? Could you challenge a family member to see if they could beat your total? I'm going to try it myself in the garden let you know how many I did tomorrow. Why don't you email and let me know if you beat me.

I've also helped the Guardians of Mathmatica.... You can find the link in the maths section, it was challenging but fun and you will definitely need a pencil and paper to help you work out some answers. Give it a go yourself.... And may be have a brave helper by your side for the really tricky questions.

 

Challenge for the Easter holiday.... Create a design for our class book corner.... We will then vote as a class on the one we like the best then use it to change our book corner once we are back at school. Remember to label your design clearly with the items you would like to be in there and write a short piece telling us why your design should be chosen. Draw in your Orange book to keep it safe.

 

Have a great day and enjoy your Easter eggs..... You know I will

Good Monday morning Badgers....

I hope you are all well and trying hard with your new timetable... Please remember that you only need to try your best, if you don't have the equipment to complete a task or are finding it to difficult find an activity at home to do instead. Then send a photo in so that we can all see what you have been doing.

Most of all don't get upset or stressed about what you can't do, just take pride in what you can.

And remember to record it in your Orange book to bring in and show me and Mrs Buckley when we're all back in school again, as we'll all have lots to share....

Good Afternoon Badgers

 

I just wanted to share something that happened this morning... it snowed, great big fluffy flakes. Only for a short while but it was beautiful and very exciting as I love the snow.

 

If you notice anything special happening email in and I'll start a class diary of exciting events.

 

If you're bored find a game all the family can play together or make a game from recycled materials like we did for homework.

 

Miss Goodall

Good morning Badgers

I hope you are all working hard.... Don't forget your parents can give you Reward points, just colour in your 100 grid to record them.

I have also refunded all the fines you may have received on TT rock stars.... Remember better to be a bit slower in your time but more accurate with your answers..... Then no fines.

Have a great day, enjoy the sunshine and be good to each other and don't forget to email in ay work you get a Reward point for so that we can all share it.

Miss Goodall

Good Morning here is a picture of 2 pencil cases sent in by James. Well done I look forward to seeing you use them very soon.

Hello Again Badgers

 

It is Wednesday morning and I hope that you all had fun finishing your Pencil cases yesterday... I would love to see some of the finished ones - Tullula and I finished hers at school yesterday. So if you can get someone to take a photo of you with yours I would like to put these up on our class web page. Send them to Mrs Freeman at the school office and she will pass them on.

Good Morning Badgers

 

I hope that you are enjoying the sunshine in your gardens and completing your Homework task.

Following instructions that we had written on how to make a jam sandwich

Thanks you all for sorting sleeping bags and blankets.... watch this space for photographs showing us during our Literacy session.

 

We are reading a text about camping in a garden and thought it would be a great idea if we bought sleeping bags into school tomorrow (Thursday 14th November 2019) so that we could pretend we were actually camping in the classroom, so that we can gather ideas for our suspense story.

If you have a sleeping bag please bring it in and a torch if you have one.

Many thanks

Spelling strategy

 

Boggle

This is a great game to play as a family. Play on a 3x3 grid (extend to 4x4 if needed) and put into it a common spelling pattern such as ough (see below), ask your child to build as many words as they can within the time limit using the available letters. You may need to remind them that they can only use each letter once in each word (more if it’s repeated in the grid).

We shall be visiting the pond in Sellindge on Wednesday afternoon (06.11.19) for a safety talk, please ensure your child has a coat with them. Thank you

Some photos of us learning our Literacy text - Fly eagle fly

We have sent home the Statutory spelling list for Years 3 and 4, please help your child learn these.

 

Here is our recommended method for this week...

 

Look. say, cover, write check. 

 

This method works as it is a multi-sensory approach, using sight, sound and touch: research shows that the more senses a child involves in their learning, the better the outcome.

Encourage your child to start with a list of 10 words(or less)

  1. Look at the word carefully. Pay attention not just to the letters and their order, but also to the shape the word makes on the page - joined up handwriting can help with this.
  2. Say it aloud. Say the word both as you would usually say it, and then again enunciating any silent letters, e.g. Wed – nes – day.
  3. Cover the word with a piece of paper or your hand
  4. Write the word down from memory.
  5. Check your answer letter by letter. If you’ve got it wrong, write it out again correctly.

 

This is most effective if repeated every day for a week before choosing another 10 words.

Welcome to Badgers' class page

 

 

At the start of the new year we'd like to welcome you to our class web page. Here are a few things we would like to remind you of:

  • Please read with your child every evening - if possible - and sign their contact book. Preferably their school reading book but it could also be  a book they have used for research, a book they are enjoying at home, an instruction booklet, a newspaper etc.
  • Homework will usually be handed out on a Friday for return the following Tuesday, this could take the form of a written or practical task - as always if your child is experiencing difficulty with this we are always happy to help in school. Homework always includes learning times tables and the year 3/4 spelling words.
  • PE will usually be on a Thursday and Friday afternoon but may happen on other days so please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school at all times - you may want to include a blue or black tracksuit for the colder months.

We aim to have high expectations for learning in Badgers and hope that you will join us on this exciting journey, many thanks Miss Goodall and Mrs Buckley.
