Also, just a reminder that we have our zoom scheduled for today at 2pm. This is to check in with the children and play a game together.

Please continue to keep in touch with me via my email below. Send through any work that your child has completed as well as any questions or support you may need. I will have access to my emails throughout the typical school day.

Missing Words (MITM)

 

Remember to read your own book everyday (reading helps us develop fantastic language for our own writing!)

 

Spelling:

Here are the two spelling lists for this week (make sure you continue to learn the spellings of ONE list):

List One:

Me

He

Be

They

Your

You

Has

List Two:

NB: on Friday, your child will be tested on their spelling through a test set up on Purple Mash.

 

Task One – practice spelling your list by doing rainbow words (this could be done on paper at home).

Task Two – write 8 sentences using the words from your chosen list. You can use as many of the words as you like but you must have 8 sentences. This can been set as a 2do on Purple Mash.

 

Computing:

This is our third lesson in our computing unit Writing for different Audiences.

In the last computing lesson, you watched a stimulated scenario called ‘After the Storm’. While you went through this stimulation, you should have written down notes about the storm from the different communications that were being sent in. These should have come from things like emails, twitter, phone, and newswire. This 2do has been set again if you need to look through it before starting todays task.

If you have made good notes, then make sure they are in reach for this lesson.

Task One – plan your own newspaper report using the planning sheet below (you will need to do this before you write the actual newspaper report on Purple Mash).

News Article Planning Sheet

Task Two – use the 2do that has been set on Purple Mash to write up your full newspaper report about the storm. Remember, you need to format your report correctly and add pictures, etc.

Below, there is a list of newspaper report headings that you might like to use to help you focus on what part of the story to write about.

News Story Angles and Headlines for After the Storm

 

Music:

This is our third lesson through the Oak Academy for Music.

Follow this link to get to this week’s lesson – https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/improvising-within-a-piece-of-music-6ngkje

In this lesson, you will review the term ‘improvise’ and return to the song ‘Step Back Baby’ to improvise and create a rhythmic backing. You will learn a new ‘call and response’ song from Ghana and complete a quiz.

 

I hope you have a wonderful day and are keeping safe.

Make sure you are completing your reading record everyday – we will check this when we’re back in school!

 

English:

We are going to continue our unit of work based on the book called ‘The Viewer’ this week.

Headteacher’s Newsletter – Friday 4th September 2020 – Autumn 1

It has been a very different start to the beginning of new academic year, one which has brought about many changes for everyone. I hope that you all had a good summer and feel rested. The children and staff have returned to school and made the transition very smoothly. Our main focus through the year will centre on supporting the children and staff with their well – being. In order for everyone to have a positive year we must make sure that we are supportive and discuss any concerns and worries openly. There are so many changes that have been imposed on us over the past six months that we must  continue to follow guidance to keep us all safe. Please read the rest of this newsletter very carefully because there is a lot of information for you to consider and be familiar with. We look forward to working closely with you once again this year and if for any reason you need to speak with a member of staff please call the office or send an email to your child’s classteacher.

 

The word of the week is – NAWPY – a new pen.

 

 

COLLECTION AND DROP OFF – We received a complaint from a local resident on Thursday afternoon about the number of parents/ carers who congregated at the gate on Allerton Road. An email was sent out to all parents/carers on Wednesday evening that reminded everyone of the times children would be dismissed from school. It also asked for everyone to follow their civic duty and adhere to government guidelines regarding social distancing. We have allowed families who have two or three children (at the school) to leave together at the end of the day. They should be collected at the double gate that leads onto Aycliffe Road. This will alleviates the pressure for those parents/carers who have to be on time to collect more than one child at two different gates. I urge you all to collect your child at the specified times and adhere to the strict guidance that remains in place. It will take time for new routines to become familiar so please continue to support the school with this very important matter.

 

 

BREAKFAST AND AFTER SCHOOL CLUB – These ever popular clubs start again on Monday 7th September. If you would like your child to attend either club please use the School Gateway app to register a place. Payment must be made at the time of booking. The cost of a place at Breakfast Club is £3 per day which includes breakfast and the cost of a place at After School Club ranges from £6 – £8.50 per day and includes a snack. Children will have to maintain social distancing at all times and will remain in their year group bubbles when they attend Breakfast and After School Club for the freseeable future. If you experience any difficulties booking a place please contact the staff in the office at:
admin@parkside.herts.sch.uk
PLEASE NOTE THAT CHILDREN IN THE NURSERY CAN ATTEND BREAKFAST CLUB BUT NOT AFTER SCHOOL CLUB.

WHEREVER POSSIBLE PAYMENTS FOR BREAKFAST AND AFTER SCHOOL CLUB SHOULD BE MADE ELECTRONICALLY

 

 

PE – On days that children have PE we expect them to come to school in their PE Kits. Sending your child into school in full kit will save time and ensures kit can be cleaned ready for the following week.  Please make a note of day that your child has PE:

Year 1 – THURSDAY
Year 2 – TUESDAY
Year 3 – FRIDAY
Year 4 – THURSDAY
Year 5 – FRIDAY
Year 6 – MONDAY

 

 

AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS – After school clubs will resume on the week beginning 14th September. They will run according to year group bubbles and will possibly run on a half term basis based on demand. Further information will be sent out next week. Please bear with us as we try and work out the best way of delivering after school clubs.

 

 

YEAR 6 SECONDARY TRANSFER – We would usually hold this very important meeting in the second or third week of the autumn term but due to Corona virus restrictions the Power Point slides with all the information you need about the process will be sent to parents/carers on THURSDAY 10th SEPTEMBER. I will be available to meet with parents / carers at scheduled appointments from MONDAY 14th SEPTEMBER THROUGH TO FRIDAY 2nd OCTOBER. We want to help you as much as possible during this very challenging time so please make sure that you book an appointment if you need any support regarding your child’s application for a place at secondary school.  The key date that you should all remember is that your application needs to be submitted by OCTOBER 31ST 2020.
