Happy Monday and happy non-SATs week! I can't believe how long it's been since we've all been together. I hope you've been keeping yourselves occupied and entertained during these very strange times. I've uploaded this week's work for you to have a go at. If you need any help with anything, please ask your parents to get in touch. I'd be more than happy to help.

Happy first of May! Can you believe that had we been in school, your KS2 SATs would have been only a week and a bit away! I'm sure most of you are relieved they aren't!

I've uploaded next week's home learning tasks for you. There's some Maths, English and Geography to have a go at. 

I hope you are all safe and well. I know lots of you are celebrating birthdays this month so to all of you, have a wonderful birthday and hope to see you all very soon!

Hi everyone :)

I've uploaded next week's home activities for you to be getting on with. There are some Maths sheets and an activity book in English based on the film clip we looked at in Year 5: 'The Alchemist's Letter'. When it comes to the writing task, please feel free to use Purple Mash. I would love to read some of your work :)

Of course there are plenty of websites for you to go on - I've seen quite a few of you have been on Purple Mash and Times Table Rockstars so well done. Remember to go on Spag.com and Read Theory as well as the other websites I've recommended in the download section.

Have a wonderful weekend and please get in touch if you have any questions.

Good morning!

As it is unlikely we will be able to perform our scene of Romeo and Juliet at the Lowry this summer, North West drama have put together some home activities for you to perform at home, all based on Romeo and Juliet.

Hi everybody,

Did you all have a good weekend?

For those of you that love animals, visit Chester Zoo on YouTube. They have some great videos about the different animals (and even feature my favourite animal on one of them!)

Here is a link to White Rose Maths. They have another weeks worth of maths videos and activities for you. If you find the Year 6 work too hard/easy, have a go at another year group. You can print the sheets off to complete of simply write down the answers on a piece of paper.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ 

It would be great to see/hear how you are all getting on and if you have tried any of the suggested activities from last week. Did any of you manage to learn any new country names?

If you want to let us know how you're getting on, you can get your parent/guardian to tweet us at:

https://twitter.com/eccles_st 

Or they can post on the school's Facebook or Instagram accounts.

Hope you are all ok and not getting too bored. 

 

Hope to see you all soon :)

Miss Simms

Happy Friday! Hope you have all managed to keep yourself entertained during your first week of home school.

Here are a few suggestions for things to do over the weekend.

Build a reading den. Use your pillows and duvet to make a den then get your favourite book, soft toys and enjoy!

Create a treasure hunt. Hide objects around the house or garden and create clues for a sibling to find the treasure.

Balloon ping pong. All you need is a balloon (to act as the ball), 2 paper plates and 2 lolly pop sticks/card (to make the paddles).

Have an indoor or garden picnic. Put a blanket down and have your lunch together!

Play a game. This could be hide and seek, a card or a board game. It’s a great way to spend some time together indoors.

Keep accessing the websites provided in your home pack and on this page. There are some really great games and videos to keep you entertained.

Hope you are all ok.

Have a great weekend.

Stay safe,

Miss Simms

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all ok and have managed to get some fresh air and some sunshine! 

Try and spend two hours on ‘school work’. Do try and include reading time as well, either by reading a book or accessing Read Theory.

Do try the links sent home in your home learning pack as well (these are also in the download section) – I’ve seen lots of you have been on Times Table Rockstars and some of you have tried Numbots! Well done!

Here are the links again:

https://numbots.com/ 

https://ttrockstars.com/ 

Here are a few other links to some great online resources:

https://www.themathsfactor.com/  Created by Carol Vorderman and features videos and activities. It is currently free and has activities for 4-12 year olds.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/  White Rose Maths have created a home learning pack for years EYFS to Year 8. They have videos followed up with an activity (and an answer sheet). You may have to print the activity sheets off or write the answers on a separate piece of paper.  

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/primary   BBC Bitesize is expanding its website to bring you more activities each day to help with home learning.

https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/ David Walliams has announced he will read a story every day for the next 30 days. Listen to them through this link!

I’ve also added some more worksheets to the ‘downloads’ section on this page. These are to limit screen time but do have to be printed off.

As well as ‘school work’, try and spend part of your day doing something new, learning something new or teaching a sibling.

Indoor Activities

https://www.spreadthehappiness.co.uk/product/100-things-to-do-indoors/ 

Some little activities to keep you entertained:

Joke of the day:

Q: What did the ground say to the earthquake?
A: You crack me up!

Anagrams

How many words can you make out of the following letters?

E A E S T H L R

Set a timer for five minutes. See if any of your family want to join in!

Points: 1 – 3 letter word, 2 – 4 letter word, 3 – 5 letter word, 4 – 6 letter word, 5 – 7 letter word, 6 – 8 letter word

Months of the year

Can you learn and teach a younger sibling the following song? Can you create your own version?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRU03b5Rt3s 

Countries of the world

I know a lot of you love our country game so why not try and learn some new countries?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGcRe4lt4z4 

You might want to have a go at writing down the different countries and what continent they are in. How many can you remember in 15 minutes?

Shoe Laces

Can you learn or teach someone how to tie a shoelace?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeSkBOYUlag 

Rainbow

Can you paint a rainbow to display in your window to bring some joy to passers by and make them smile?

Kitchen Helper

Can you help someone in the kitchen tonight and learn a new skill?

Can you learn to make a hot drink like tea, coffee or hot chocolate? Can you learn to make a bowl of pasta or prepare a sauce? Make sure you have adult supervision at all times!

I hope to see you all soon. If there are any particular worksheets you would like for any subject, let the school know and I can upload them on this page.

Stay safe and healthy,

Miss Simms

 

 

 

School Closures

Following government advice, St. Andrew's will close its doors on Friday 20th March at 3.20 pm and at the moment, we are unsure when we will reopen. 

All children have been provided with a home education pack, which includes a list of helpful and useful websites both parents and children can access during this uncertain time. You can find this list of websites in the attachments.

I wanted to take this moment to thank you all for your understanding and if you have any questions or wish for more work, please get in touch on the email address provided in the home pack. 

I will be updating both this site, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with suggested activities, stories and web links on a daily basis.
