The Ickabog

 

Hi Everyone!

As you may or may not know JK Rowling (author of Harry Potter) has written a new children's book aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 9 years old.  This is a completely new story called 'The Ickabog'.  

Each day she uploads a new chapter to the story, which she has been doing for a few weeks so there are plenty of chapters to read :).

 

COMPETITION TIME!!!!

As well as this fantastic story being released online, JK Rowling has created a competition for children aged between 7 and 12!  The competition is to illustrate parts of the book so that when it is released it will have children's pictures in it.  If your child creates a picture for one of the chapters (information on the website) and you enter it, it could be in the actual book!!!!

You also have the opportunity to draw a picture for each chapter so you will have lots of chances to win :).

 

Below is the link to the website with the story and the competition.

Please read the rules for entering.

 

If you don't want to enter, please read and enjoy the story anyway :).

Dear Parents/Carers,

As we obviously can't have our class photos this year Mrs Hindle is putting together a class photo for each class as a lasting memory of this time!

If you would like to have your child added to their class photo I need you to send a head shot (from the shoulders up) of your child to sycamore@newmoston.manchester.sch.uk
(By doing this you are giving your consent to share your child's photo with other parents.)

I would need these no later than FRIDAY 19TH JUNE!

There is no uniform to the image you send just a clear smiling head shot of your cherubs! (Please no snapchat style filters!)

Thank you 

******************************************************************************

 

As promised, here is our class email!  Once you've completed a challenge email it to the address below and I will reply with some feedback :).  I look forward to seeing your fantastic work!

This video is great for modelling how to add using the column method! It is quite lengthy but you may not need to watch it all. The first half shows simple column addition and the second shows how to carry a ten when there are too many ones. The second part is quite tricky, so just do what you can :).
The activities for this session are above this video. You DO NOT need to do them all, just do what you like :).

English - Friday 12th June - Lesson 3 - Writing Instructions

 

Hi Guys!
Get ready for some fun in today's challenge!  We all know how much Mr Grinling loved his lunch and yet those sneaky seagulls kept on stealing it!  He was devastated not to be able to eat his sandwiches every day (they must have been very delicious).  That made me wonder what your favourite sandwich would be...

 

Your challenge for today is to create some instructions on how to make your own perfect sandwich!

You could write your instructions (example given below) or you could take pictures.  Remember to use time connectives (first, next, then) and bossy verbs (cut, slice, spread) to make your instructions more detailed and clear.

 

Please send any work or pictures to the email address (hopefully uploaded soon!) so I can take a look at your delicious sandwiches and how you made them, 

BONUS:  For the best entry I will follow your instructions and post a picture of your sandwich made by me!!!

 

Good luck,

Mrs Richards

In addition to this we’d like to make Mr Partington a book of memories.  If you have a special memory of him please send to us!

Home Learning

 

Hello Children and Parents!

As you will have heard we will be setting daily online learning for the children to complete on our class blog!

Each day there will be set a Maths and English challenge plus other fun and exciting challenges on random days (definitely keep an eye out for these!)  We are also in the process of creating a class email for you to send any completed work to which I will post on here as soon as I know it.

In regards to the challenges, you ARE NOT expected to complete them all.  The challenges are there for you do what you like, when you like and how much you like.  I can't wait to see what you send in!

 

 

Hello Sycamore Class,

 

We hope that you are enjoying spending time at home with your family but we are missing you all very much!

 

While you have been at home the teachers have mostly been at home too which is very strange!

 

Everyday Mrs Richards has been doing the Joe Wicks PE lesson with her boys Freddie and Max and helping them with their home learning packs. Have you completed any of yours? As you know Mrs Richards loves books and is enjoying having more time to read. Can you make a list of books you have read or listened too?

 

Mrs Lucas is enjoying spending time gardening and cooking and Miss Aboo has been looking after her family.

 

We are looking forward to seeing you back at school. Keep safe and make sure you are listening to your grown ups at home! Remember to enjoy other activities like cooking, drawing and listening to music.

 

For parents:

If you need to contact school please use the following email address

ks1parents@newmoston.manchester.sch.uk 

 

For any pastoral needs please email:

 

safeguarding@newmoston.manchester.sch.uk

 

Stay safe 

 

Lots of Love

Mrs Richards, Mrs Lucas and Miss Aboo xxx
