Welcome to Class F's Home Learning Page!

Good morning Class F!

How are you finding home learning? It's really strange being away from everyone and not being able to see friends. Remember, when you are home learning, always take movement breaks and brain breaks. You feel so much better after one!

Here's a news story I think might make you smile - it's got some very cute animals: Click me!!

Don't forget to solve the problem of the day. How are you finding solving them? I've also added a pirate chalenge for you - it'll stay until the end of the week, so complete it when you can :)

Have a lovely day,

Miss Percival :)

Class F's Timetable

Class F - I've made a timetable to help you in your learning. I know how much you enjoy following our daily timetable at school and reminding me if I forget to change it! 
However, it's important to remember this is just a guide. Talk to your adult and decide what is best for you and how much you can achieve each day. Remember to have lots of movement breaks and brain breaks. Don't forget you need brain food too! 

Resources For All Learners

Dear Parents/Carers,

The staff at SMA have been working together to come up with a list of online learning tools, and websites with fun and engaging, educational content. Please take some time to look at the document below. We have included a brief description of each website, as well as the age range we believe it is best suited to. 

Thank you for your continued support, care and love for the school, staff, children and community.

Happy learning! 

SMA Staff.

Share A Story

Will you share a story with me Class F? I've been looking and I've found us a new class book to share together! 
It's called 'Story Party' and it contains lots of different stories for us to listen to. I'm going to listen to a chapter a day - that's two (or sometimes 3) stories! But if you can't thats ok. Just listen for as long you'd like - or listen to a little bit throughout the day!
Will you join me at 3pm everyday?

MindUp

Each week, I'll be posting a MindUp activity for you to have a go at, just like we do in class.

This week, we will look at 'Your Brain'. This activity helps you to revise what the key parts of the brain are, and their functions. Throughout the week, have a go at some of these activities I've attached, along with the poster to help you. Maybe you could do one a day - remember to take brain breaks to help your learning! 

Oscar Romero

CAFOD is one of the charities that we support at St Mary of the Angels.

This week, they have put a pack together for you and your family to learn about Saint Oscar Romero. Discuss with the people in your family why you think Oscar Romero was such a special person.

Then have a go at making a Romero cross, but for your family. You could use this to help you pray at home too. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
