Our Vision Statement:



Willow Class

 Welcome to Willow Class! 

Mrs Coll is our Teacher and Miss Ridgway is our Teaching Assistant.

Welcome to a new week!

 

Please see below your home learning tasks for week beginning

Monday 13th July 2020

This is our last week. Have a super summer holiday everybody xxx

 

The children that are in school are following the sessions that are outlined on here. We will continue to use The National Oak Academy as a basis for our learning. This is a website that has been approved by the Department for Education and one that follows The National Curriculum. This means that children at home can still receive a lesson taught by a teacher. 

There still seems to be some discrepancy in what they say they are going to teach and what videos they publish. This is why my activities may be different to what they show. Their plan says that this week the focus will be Dragons, Measuring and Floating/Sinking. This is what my planned sessions follow.

For those that do not have the facility to access the website, or prefer to follow my separately planned activities, I will continue to produce an activity or worksheet that loosely matches The National Oak Academy. This will be underneath.

 

 

Each day will continue to have three sessions:

  • One foundation/rainbow challenge
  • One Maths session
  • One English session

All parents are invited to send photos and descriptions to 2Simple to inform their child’s profiles. Some parents are struggling with the inbox@2buildaprofile.com email address so please find the last emailed profile that you received and reply to that for more success. Alternatively you can share what your child has done by emailing earlyyears@heathcote.staffs.sch.uk
