Class 4

Remote Learning- Week 2

 

Message for children:

Hi everyone! I hope your first week went well. I am definitely starting to miss your faces and Friday just wasn't the same without our silly register. Please email me and send pictures, I would love to see what you are all up to. I have been starting my mornings with Joe Wicks' PE sessions (it's harder than I thought it would be!- Link here), ticking off books from my reading list (Audible are currently steaming hundreds of children's books for free- Link here) and I'm about to go an a virtual tour of Chester zoo. 

 

Message for parents:

I just wanted to say I think all of you are doing a fantastic job! The activities/work I have provided are to help you, but do as much or as little as you want to do. Do not worry if these activities are not done! If there is something else your child is more interested in learning about feel free, see this as a unique opportunity to explore their interests!

Also if your child was not in on the final day and you would like their pack they are available from the school office Mon-Fri (9:30-15:00). These packs are not vital they just include; login information (which I can email you), an empty sketch book, a book, a jotter, handwriting, etc. However, if you would like them you are welcome to come and collect them. Email me if you have any questions or just want to share what you have been up to.

 

You can contact me via email cbloor@highlegh.cheshire.sch.uk

Each week I will be putting activities on this page. There will be roughly 5 pieces of maths and English and 3 pieces of topic work. You also have your packs that were given out on the final day. Work your way through your pack as you like.
