Blakeney’s Week Ahead Monday 22nd February 2021

Important Changes to Remote Learning

What will remote learning look like this half term? During our first week back at school, we will continue to use the class blog to set the remote learning. At times, we will be introducing children to live lessons with a teacher; when we are ready to offer our first live lesson, you will be notified via a blog announcement. Please look out for that. We anticipate doing a live lesson trial run with children no later than Wednesday.

Children have been sent their Microsoft 365 emails to access Teams.  You have also been sent instructions for how to access Teams from different devices. Please check your emails/spam folders if you have not seen this yet. Live lessons are accessed by going to the Post feed and clicking on the link for the relevant lesson.  For now, the blog should be followed in the usual way.

General Notes on Remote Learning

Daily lessons follow the same timetable that we use at school in the morning.

You are expected to complete the morning work every day and at least one of the afternoon subjects (found at the end of the weekly blog).

This week, please send your work in for me to check, either as a photograph or an attachment. Send it to a.black@gf.kwestacademy.com

Keep in touch and please do contact me for support if you find anything unclear, confusing or difficult. I am just on the end of the phone or I can email a reply if you prefer.

Power Maths Link: You can now login to Power Maths yourself directly from the website. That means you can obtain the text book and the practice book by going to this web address:  www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0

Fractions problems? I am aware that fractions has been very difficult for some children. If that sounds like you, I would like you to spend this week following fractions lessons on Oak Academy instead of your Power Maths books.

Which level should I choose?

Choose Year 3 to rebuild your confidence and develop a solid understanding of what a fraction is and how we use them. It does not mean you are working at Y3 level in maths. It just gives you a reminder about things you might have forgotten.

Choose Year 4 if you feel you are almost getting it but Year 5 work has been too hard for you and you’ve been getting a lot wrong.
