Teacher Olive Class

Welcome to the Olive class home learning page
 
Our home learning is intended to develop our pupils' excitement and passion for their learning and to help parents support their children at home.
 
During the week daily activities will be added to:
  • Ensure that parents are clear about what their child is expected to do
  • Ensure consistency of approach throughout the school during the closure
  • To use home learning as a tool to help to continue to raise standards of attainment
  • Improve the quality of the learning experience offered to pupils and to extend it beyond the classroom environment
  • Provide opportunities for parents, children and the school to work together in partnership in relation to pupils’ learning
  • Encourage pupils and their parents to share and enjoy learning experiences
  • Reinforce learning covered in class by providing further opportunities for the individual pupil
  • To practice or consolidate basic skills and knowledge
 
I will be providing the following work for the children each week:
  • Maths activity x1 per day
  • Writing 1 x activity per day
  • Reading comprehension 1 x activity per week
  • 10 Spelling words to practice 1 x activity per week

Good Morning Olive class!
 
Congratulations on completing your first week of home learning!
Thank you for sharing your wonderful work, I love seeing how you're getting on and hope to see lots more over the next week too!
 
Today, you will be writing a book review about a book you've read, old or new and you'll be telling me all about the story. Plus, you'll need to put your detective skills to the test, as I want you to search your book for adjectives, verbs, and nouns!
 
In maths, you'll be looking at multiplication and writing number sentences along with solving some word problem challenges.
 
I want you to practice your spellings today with a short test. Have a look at the link below, your adult can time you for each word and then you can tick or fix your spellings!
 
Have a restful and enjoyable weekend.
 
 
Happy Friday!
