Dear Parents/Carers

 

In light of COVID-19 and in preparation for the school closure, I have set up an online classroom on https://app.seesaw.me. It is a safe, online tool to help teachers communicate and assign tasks to pupils. 

 

In order for children to access the online classroom, I have provided children with a unique password/QR code. This was either given to your child directly on Tuesday 17th, given to a sibling or has been posted to you if you were already self-isolating. 

 

Children can either access Seesaw through a computer or through an app. If they are using a computer, they can type in their letter password or if using an app, they can scan the QR code.

 

Please keep your password safe. If you happen to lose your password during a school closure, please email the school at school@svsj.bwmat.org so that I can re-send your password. 

 

I realise that this is a challenging time and I want to be able to support the learning of children as much as physically possible. I have already started uploading activities on Seesaw however, if you are experiencing any difficulties accessing Seesaw, I will be uploading work to the website soon. 

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me. If you are unable to speak to me in person, please email me through school@svsj.bwmat.org

 

Many thanks,

 

Molly Craney

We have been studying the book ‘Flotsam’ by David Wiesner. We are looking at this book because this term we are investigating sound. Flotsam is a wordless book and therefore we are looking at how the absence of sound and words can mean we have to rely on inference. Here we are looking at the ‘Flotsam’ of different people and we are using inference to work out the character to which it belonged.

How can we use our knowledge

of the human body to persuade

people to lead more active and

healthy lifestyles?

From Rainforests to Carnivals, how is Brazil Similar and Different to the UK and Somerset?

Acting out the story of ‘The Great Kapok Tree’

What can we find out about Ancient Egypt from what has been discovered by experts?

Thank you SO much for all your help with costumes for the Egyptian day.

 

Above, there are photos of the Tomb Escape room. We also spent the day writing in hieroglyphics, creating scarab beetles and cartouches out of clay and preparing an Egyptian meal however, I forgot to take pictures!

 

It makes me so happy to see the children so excited and enthusiastic about their learning! I hope to do more things like this in the future.

 

Many thanks once again,
