Thank you for all your fantastic entries for the competition which finished on Friday 5th June. Winners will be announced on Monday for the three categories below. There will be one winner from each class for each category.

  • Nature eg flowers, animals and trees
  • Landscapes eg the beach, forest and fields
  • Urban eg towns and buildings

You can see all the entries from the two classes on the separate power points. As you can see it is very hard to decide as there were so many amazing photographs!

Natural Art challenge

Here are a few of the wonderful pictures created by children.

Welcome to Term 6

We were impressed by how hard you worked last term on your home learning - well done! Work will be continued to still set on Purple Mash, but it will be set on a Monday with a Friday finish. If you click on the subjects below you will find an activity or ideas for each of them. These will be updated weekly and we look forward to seeing some of the work which you produce. There will be less work to complete on Purple Mash, as we hope you will have a go at the Summer Challenges. You can find these weekly challenges at https://www.whitfieldaspenschool.co.uk/whole-school-summer-challenges/

The pictures of your challenges need to be emailed to: wombat@whitfield.kent.sch.uk

Good luck!

Please use the following email addresses to send any additional work you have done, whether that's photos or documents of your child's work.

Quite a few parents have recommended the BBC Bitesize daily lessons. Here is the link to use: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons.

EASTER BREAK IDEAS

There are some great ideas for you to try over the Easter break. Good luck!

As the school is now closed due to the Coronavirus (unless you are a 'key worker'), we will be using Purple Mash as a platform for setting learning tasks for the children. They will have tasks to complete through their 'To Do' tab which they can then submit for us to mark/comment on. Your child will be bringing home their Login details and further guidance for you, if this becomes necessary.

Below is a quick link to Purple Mash as well as a link to Timestables Rockstars which we would also like the children to use regularly.

 

Please also encourage your child to continue reading a variety of texts as well as giving them practical activities to complete to enhance their maths and language skills. These could include following a recipe to bake biscuits, reading different clocks around your home and keeping a journal of their extended break. Don't forget to encourage your child to look at the web links at the bottom of this page for further learning activities.

 

We will be updating the learning on Purple Mash regularly  so please encourage your child to check it regularly for further tasks.

 

We hope that we will be able to resume normal teaching again in the near future but in the meantime, we wish you and your family a safe and healthy Easter.

Renaissance Free Online Reading Books

 

School may be closed but reading doesn't have to stop. Renaissance our Accelerated Reader provider is providing free access to 1000's of digital books through 'MyOn' their online reading platform. The link can be found below and can be accessed through tablets, computers and smart phones.

 

Keep up the great reading and have fun!

As part of our additional curriculum coverage during this time, please find a few links aiding the teaching and learning of French and Music. These are all areas which have been covered this year and will help support the children's learning at home. 

Below is a link to a football themed game that help develop the children's understanding of spelling, punctuation and grammar.
