Class 4

Welcome to Class 4

 

Hello everyone,

 

We hope you have enjoyed your weekend and that you managed to spend some time together with your family. Today is the start of 'home schooling'. Sounds great doesn't it?  Mrs Cable and I miss you all already- yes we are being serious!

The most important thing for us all is that we need to get into a routine.  We have set up a schedule to guide and help you focus as if it were a school day. (If you drag your work out too long, you will feel that it will take you all day. Follow our steps and it will all be over by lunch time-ish!) 

Our only other advice is not to jump into a video game, movie or something really distracting in between tasks. Instead go outside and get some fresh air, listen to some music or even do some exercise.  

We have described some of the Activities below. Remember parents that you do not have to follow this. If you have your own time table then that is fine- whatever works best for you but routine is key! All of the answers are provided- We have told the children to mark them after each activity so they are confident with the work they have done/identify and address misconceptions. 

 

Try and get on with it the best you can and we are at school if you need help.

Mr Crump & Mrs Cable :)

 

PE task - https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html He is online ready at 9. 

 

Project Task 1.  -We want you to create a project (completed on computer, making a poster, creating a model or art work etc.) based on anything to do with the moon. We want you to find out as much about the moon as you possible can. Only complete 30 to 45 minutes a day maximum on this activity. Be creative and have fun with it!  We will set a new project after Easter. 

 

Life Task- This is a simple one...do something independently or help your parents with an activity. It could be cooking, cleaning, DIY, helping the community or environment. Again be creative but helpful around the home. This is important. Create a diary of these tasks in your work book or if you have pictures, create a power point presentation that you can send to us once you have a collection.

 

Moon drawing observation - a quick 2 minute activity. We want children to observe the phases of the moon over 30 days. Draw what the moon looks like- use sheet provided.

 

Maths- write the Learning objectives on the pages before answering the questions. We will put next weeks schedule up next week.

 

We will upload a writing task Tuesday and Thursday on here for you to complete. It will be below this section.

Week 2

Hi again,

 

We have decided to leave both weeks evident so you can check your work through in case you are confused that you have missed/already completed a task if you shouldn't have. If you have done this, do not worry just make sure you have done all of the work by the end of the week.

 

Thank you for those children who have sent me their War of the Worlds work this week. I have a few children whose work I need to give feedback to (sorry I'm enjoying having a rest this weekend). I will look at these Monday and respond. There are quite a lot of people who have NOT sent their writing work in. Please do so if you can. A picture or typed work is fine. I have a list of names that I am keeping an eye on- no pressure!

 

Maths work is tricky this week. It is ratio and proportion. I have sent a lot of links of websites/videos that will be worth looking at which explain what it is quite well. Also read the examples on the worksheet as this may help. I have ordered the websites on personal preference, however, you may find other sites or videos more helpful than others. 

 

Keep continuing your projects. I am REALLY looking forward to these. I am hoping to start my blog tonight (Sunday) so hopefully you can enjoy reading it and it will give you some ideas at home to keep yourselves entertained. Thank you to the parents/children who are sending me photos. It is really pleasing to see you are all well. 

 

I am on our google classroom at some point during the the week (apart from Tuesday; it is Lily-Ella's birthday) so I will catch up with you all on there. I will also post week 2 of War of the Worlds on here Monday ready for Tuesday. 

 

Keep well. Enjoy your last week before Easter.

 

Mr C and Mrs Cable :)

Writing Tasks - There is a lot of information here in the document. I have tried to explain everything clearly. Have fun with it!

Mr Crump Isolation Blog 

The content expressed below are my personal views and are not shared by Henley Primary School. I hope you find this a useful read.

 

 

Hello everyone, 

 

My first blog and I am slightly nervous about writing this. The idea behind it is to keep you all updated with how I am getting on but mainly to give you ideas on how to manage your work, keep you positive and hopefully busy over a time where we are all stuck indoors! Please give me some feedback by sending me an email. I welcome it as long as it isn't criticism! Haha! 

 

The serious bit

 

One week of isolation has finished - two weeks to go until the next review- and I hope it has been a good week for you all. When I say good, I mean safe and well. I went into school on Monday for a meeting and spent time with the children who were in. For the rest of the week, I have been 'on call' ready to go in if any children are in school.  During that time, I have been planning work for you, learning how to use google classrooms and I have also been giving feedback on writing tasks. I have appreciated everyone who is making an effort to work at home. I applaud you that you are realising the part you have to play at this time in your lives. 

 

I'm finding this difficult as I like to be around people. I'm lucky to be living with my wife and daughter but it is situations such as not being able to see my parents and give them a big hug which I am finding the hardest at the moment. Also trying to explain why a two year old can't see her grandparents and cousins has been difficult. The repetition of  "Why? Why? Why?" has been asked a lot and now I know how Homer Simpson feels! I couldn't imagine how people who are living on their own are coping and I really do feel for them. I'm making sure I call my Gran at moments when I'm in the car to go shopping or in general so she has someone to talk to. We have created a rota as a family to make sure somebody calls her every day. Remember my assembly about sparing time for those in the community or in your family and what you can do to help if you can? I have read some lovely letters in the news of children who are writing to the NHS workers and even Boris Johnson to show their appreciation- a fantastic idea!

 

 

Keeping busy

 

This week, I have been trying to find things to do throughout the day to rest and break the day up so I can enjoy family time and release stress and tension. Even though I love video games, I find they aren't fantastic for this as most games increase frustration and tension (especially if your not doing very well). Remaining positive, active and calm has to be our number one priority. I'm going to share some of the things I have done and hope it helps you with your time at home. If you are doing it already then please share your ideas! 

 

Great Idea 

I have received an update from Oscar and Isaac this week. They have turned their house into a primary school. They have named it after their house and have created a school logo. Isaac has even managed to wear his school uniform all week - What a commitment! They have even created a reward system similar to the school house point/behaviour point system. A great job boys- love it!wink

 

Challenge break- Every day I have set challenges for myself or members of my family during my breaks. For me these have been skill based and active. I remember when I was your age and we spent most of the time playing in the garden, out in the road (we lived in a quiet cul de sac) or over the field. We had to make do with what we had and we are in that situation now. So I create games. I have been chipping footballs into my trampoline or setting up an obstacle course. Also we have played bat and ball and have even been taking part in random relay races! Between my family, we send each other our daily challenges just to keep the children busy! I have been challenging my self on the piano and I'm even learning how to plait hair - go me! Have a look at the pictures and videos below! Annoyingly the obstacle course video won't load!

 

Send me a challenge and I will try and do it! 

 

Exercise - I hope you have all been doing the Joe Wicks daily workout. I do or did until I messed up my wrist on my weights so I  am using alternative exercises for the ones I can't do. I have been going on a daily walk (hour max) which breaks up the day and has been good for clearing my head. I miss football but I accept that no one is playing at the moment so it is not like I'm missing out really am I? My wife has just got a bike with a child seat on so we can now go out for a bike ride. I'm really looking forward to this- and no the child seat isn't for me! Keep active and get fresh air; It is good for you. 

 

Random acts of fun- After dinner we have a crazy time; mainly dancing to some classics and doing random things that just make us smile and laugh. We also play a lot of games. I love card games, Mexican Train, Dobble, Uno, Monopoly (although I am banned from  playing that), Ker Plunk and Rummikub. I actually love these moments the most during the day. 

 

Quizzes and puzzles

My Family have set up a group video chat using an app. We can have multiple videos on our devices. It is brilliant as Sunday I held an escape room style quiz. I gave them an hour to solve several puzzles and find the ten digit code (I got the idea from your maths Easter homework). They completed it in 40 minutes which I was pleased with and we had great fun. My sister is planning a quiz over Easter and we are all excited. I have seen there are some apps already that have quizzes on them. Give it a go!

Music Education

Right this is a class favourite- 5 random minutes of  listening to 'classics' during points of the day. Usually it is only appreciated by AG but I know some of you secretly like my selection. I have picked a few songs for you to listen to. I hope you enjoy and dance like nobody is watching. More to come next week. Let me know your thoughts and opinions of them. 

 

1. 1998 Eiffel 65 - Blue (Da Ba Dee)

2. 1997 hit Dr Jones - Aqua  (Yes the one in my singing/miming videolaugh)

3. 1988 The Four Tops - Loco in Acapulco

4. 1987 Whitney Houston - I Wanna Dance With Somebody

5. 1977 Meat Loaf - Bat Out of Hell (For the heavy rockers)

 

Cooking

You are all at an age where you should be starting to learn how to cook with an adult or even by yourself. I love this time of the day (shock) as I enjoy cooking meals but also especially at the moment because it takes 30 mins to an hour depending on the meal and helps with boredom. Plus your mum and dad will think it is great and you get to score extra 'bonus points'.  I will share some meals that you can cook at home. Obviously you will have to speak to your parents and talk to them about purchasing ingredients, the safety regarding food hygiene, cooking meat and cutting vegetables. 

 

Paella- My favourite summer time rice dish- I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients - Four People

Paella

1 to 2 Chicken breasts or Prawns

Chorizo

1 Red Pepper

1/4 of a Green Pepper

1 red onion

Handful of Mushrooms

Add Frozen Peas (cup full)

Paella rice- 325g

Paella Mix (purchase in any supermarket with other packet mixes) 

Prepare/cook

1. Chop Peppers, onions and mushrooms into small pieces.

2. Chop the chorizo and cut the chicken into small pieces.

3. Cook the chicken in the wok/saucepan and add the chorizo and onion.

4. After a few minutes add the peppers and mushrooms. 

5. Again after a few minutes, add the paella rice and paella mix. Cook for 4-5 minutes

6. Add a litre of boiled water and continue to stir. Once the water is bubbling turn down to a medium/low heat and let it simmer. Cook until rice is soft and the water is absorbed by the rice. This may take 20-30 minutes and you may need to add a little more water. Keep tasting the rice after this time to check that it is soft. 

7. Add frozen peas when rice has nearly absorbed the water. 

 

That's me finished. Speak to you soon for the next update.
