After Easter, I will be delivering some guided reading sessions so that we can cover our class story for next term. Details about how to access these will be sent out soon. Whilst I will be reading the story to the children, it might be beneficial for them to have their own copy so that they can read along with me.
The book is 'The Switch' by Anthony Horowitz and is available on Amazon for roughly £3. If it is possible for you to get a copy over the Easter holidays I would recommend doing so. Please let me know if I can help you with sourcing the book.
To help us stay connected as a class, I have created a blog for Oak Class on Purple Mash. This will allow me to send messages to the class and the children will be able to comment too. This can accessed by clicking on the 'Sharing' icon on Purple Mash and then onto 'shared blogs' and 'Oak Class blogs.' I have attached a screenshot to show this as well.
I have asked the children to comment stating which afternoon activities they would like to be set from tomorrow onwards as they have a choice between Endangered animals and the Shang Dynasty this week. Please could you make your child aware of this as they won't receive a notification.
Links to help with literacy work:
literacywithmissp.com - This offers a huge range of creative writing activities for children whilst at home. There are lots being uploaded every day!
Links to help with Maths
- This website is particularly useful when supporting with Maths at home. The website is organised into different year groups and covers objectives specific to that year. It contains short clips which show children how to complete the Maths followed up with some questions for children to do independently.
Grammar Book Guidance:
Email from Miss Douglas to Year 6 with some grammar guidance:
I appreciate that this is a difficult time for everyone and some children are finding the Grammar booklets quite difficult to complete independently. I have attached a guidance pack which may be useful to some of you when supporting at home. It is a large document but you can use the contents page to find specific guidance on different objectives.
Please send me an email if you are finding anything tricky and I will do my best to help.

In line with DfE and MAT guidance, the teaching staff have worked hard to put a timetable together for each year group with activities and tasks reflecting as far as possible the school day.
Please see letter and timetable for details. Teachers have also prepared a list of additional website resources should you require supplementary activities.
Please note, there is a legal requirement for school work to be completed.
Teachers will be available for support and feedback via their clutton school email addresses during this time - between 8:30am and 3:15pm monday to friday until Friday 3rd April.
