Mr Sellers

This is my second year teaching at Greyfriars having worked in Year 3/4 last year. I have returned to the Early Years into one of our Reception classes known as Snettisham. This year, we are excited to be working closely with Heacham class too. I’m hugely passionate about the Early Years and feel incredibly privileged to be working alongside children as they follow their own learning adventures. Other than my class, I also support the teaching and learning of Phonics at Greyfriars. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, exploring new places and driving my classic VW Beetle called Bonnie.

Snettibrations! (26/02/21)

Posted on Friday, February 26th, 2021

Hello everyone,

What a busy week! It’s been so amazing to see so many of you on Teams as we start live learning. I know this is a very new way of learning so thank you all of your patience with me as I navigate a very new way of teaching. We’ve not had much on Tapestry  this week, it can be really hard to get back into learning after a half term. If you would like anymore advice on how you can support and/or evidence your children’s next steps using Tapestry please contact me and I’ll do my best to help.

 

Freddie has had a busy week. He’s been learning his tricky words at home and playing a game of ‘crossing the river’ using two cushions to move from one side of the room to the other showcasing his fantastic problem solving skills. He also sent me a great video of his Little Red Hen retelling and action performance and joined us for Live Learning! Great Job Freddie!

 

Shaya has also joined us for live learning this week as well as completing her Phonics home learning and labelling different facial expressions with their correct emotions. Lovely to see all of your hard work Shaya – well done!

Education City 

Well done Shaya, Freddie, Callum, Jessica, Eddie, Olliver and Melis for all of your hard work on Education City this week. It’s lovely to see all of your learning on there!

Final Messages

As always, remember to access the wonderful worlds of Education City and Bug Club. Work is set on these platforms weekly to support you and your children. I would love to see their work on Tapestry so, with your expressed permission, I can share it with their friends and other families in my Friday blogs.

Hello everyone,

I can see you have all had a busy week. It’s been so great to speak with so many families this week and share your children’s ‘Home Learning’ success stories. Remember to look at my email for more guidance on what your child’s next steps are.  If you would like anymore advice on how you can support and/or evidence these milestones using Tapestry please contact me and we can work together on these.

Brody has been baking cake with Mum at home. Practising his mixing, counting and tasting!

Eddie wrote his numbers to 25 before going for a 5 mile walk to burn off some energy. He came across some calves too. Eddie’s Mum said he’s just  like Dr Dolittle as all animals seem to be so interested in him. Eddie and his Mum were talking about the good things cows do for us and Eddie knew they make us milk for our cereal and cheese and butter for our sandwiches. Wow Eddie!

Edward has been practising his writing and numbers. Edward cooked his favourite pita breads and he was pretending to walk to Granny’s house like in Little Red Riding Hood. Well done Edward!

 

Freddie has had a busy week too. He’s sent me fantastic videos of his counting on Tapestry. He and his Mum used wooden blocks to help him with his Maths. He started by finding 5 blocks and 1 block checking the right amount by counting the blocks altogether. Great job Freddie!

Jessica, has been sending us examples of her beautiful handwriting and I can see she has been able to find the ‘igh’ trigraph in her words. I loved how she used the plates to create a part-whole model in Maths! Well done Jessica!

Olliver has been working hard at home designing a beautiful new cloak for Little red Riding Hood and using his computer. I think Little Red would love it Olliver!

Shaya has been working heard at home matching objects together and practising reading and writing her Tricky Words. Shaya has also been finding words rhymes. Great job Shaya.

Education City 

Well done Shaya, Callum, Eddie, Freddie, Maxim, Olliver and Melis for all of your hard work on Education City this week. It’s lovely to see all of your hard work on there!

Snettisham Celebrations (29/01/21)

Posted on Friday, January 29th, 2021

Hello everyone,

It looks like you have had a very busy week. It’s been so great to speak with so many families this week and share your children’s ‘Next Steps’ and ‘Home Learning’ success stories. Remember to look at my email for more guidance on what your child’s next steps are.  If you would like anymore advice on how you can support and/or evidence these milestones using Tapestry please contact me and we can work together on these.

Shaya has produced lovely writing this week. Her Mum told me that she’s been working very hard on her Home Learning and I totally agree. I really enjoyed her story and enjoyed reading about her weekend. I think she has written her name beautifully too. She has also been finding objects to spell her name. Well done Shaya!

S – shoes
H- handbag
A- apple
Y- yoghurt
A- air freshner

 

Melis has had a busy week too. She been working hard on her letters and number whilst making a beautiful princess crown, baking a cake with her family and keeping active on bike rides. I think your cake looks delicious Melis – well done!

Elouise has been working very hard too. Here is a few photos of the lovely writing she has produced from her ‘Home Learning’ pack. I can see that she’s been working really hard on holding her pencil in the correct place and trying hard to form her letters. Keep up the great work Elouise!

As always, remember to access the wonderful worlds of Education City and Bug Club. Work is set on these platforms weekly to support you and your children. I would love to see their work on Tapestry so, with your expressed permission, I can share it with their friends and other families in my Friday blogs. If you would like to contact me via email to arrange a phone call for any additional support please do so. a.sellers@gf.kwestacademy.com

Have a restful weekend and I look forward to speaking with you next week.

Stay safe,

Mr Sellers

Snettisham and Heacham afternoons

Posted on Monday, January 25th, 2021

Hello my lovelies!

This week is going to be cold and frosty according to the weather people, so your first instruction is to wrap up warm – but if snow falls, go and play in it!  There’s lots of time to work later, but we don’t often get proper snow.

Yoga

I’ve found the complete playlist for the YogaQuest, so you can see where you are up to.  In school, we are in the Rumbly Jungle.  Follow the link and have a look on the right hand side of the page.

Music

This week we are making a cake for Grandma! We are so kind!

Little Red Riding Hood. 3: Let’s make a cake for Grandma! – BBC Teach

Art

Last week you got together all the things you would need to make your collage.  This week is the making week!  How will you stick your things down?  Send me a picture of your finished piece and I’ll make a gallery for them.

 

Science

Last week we looked at what a light source was.  Which light sources can you remember?  Here’s a clip to help you.

BBC Two – KS1 Science Clips, Light and Dark, Introduction to light sources (clip compilation)

 

This week, I’m asking you a question – is the moon a light source?  Let me know what you think.

The Moon – KS2 Science – BBC Bitesize might help you.

Topic

PSHE KS1 / KS2: Proud to be an Inventor – BBC Teach

What do we learn about inventors from this clip?

What is your favourite invention from history?

What inventors do you know from history or books? My favourite is this one…

You Two – Chitty, Chitty, Bang Bang – YouTube

I’d love a breakfast machine!

 

R.E.

Last week we looked at the pictures and thought about which was our favourite.

This week, I want you to look at the pictures and think about how those things were made.  Was it science? Or were they made on purpose by a creator?  What kind of questions would you have for a being who made the world? Is there anything you think they shouldn’t have made?

 

Right, so I think that’s all of it, so let’s crack on with the week
