Hello,

 

I hope you are well and staying safe. If you are at a loose end  today, try the below:

 

 

READING: Year 3 and above

 

Try The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling- great story, better than any of the films and the language is beautiful.

TRUE OR FALSE:

 

All multiples of 3 have digits which add up to a multiple of 3. For example - 15 is a multiple of 3.  5 + 1 = 6  which is also a multiple of 3.

 

What about 42? 4 + 2 = 6, so is 42 a multiple of 3?

 

What about 552?

 

And what about 13,890?

 

Is 456,371?

 

You will need a calculator to check your answers. Try other 6 and 7 digit numbers.

 

 

General Knowledge:

 

Use an atlas or a world map. How many countries can you find beginning with the letter C? What about the letter T? Which letter has the most countries?

 

 

Have a good weekend.

 

Best wishes

Joe

Hello everyone,

I trust you are all well and staying safe.  I include below some in formation on Time to Connect from Family Support for those who may need it. Please get in touch if there is anything we can help you with at this difficult time. I will be in touch again tomorrow.

 

Time to Connect

 

We have launched a new service called ‘Time to Connect’ which is available to general public and also for your Teams to refer into. The service is aimed at families who are finding it hard to cope with being at home, balancing working and childcare/home schooling.  Time to Connect is for families to be able to talk though any worries they have and be provided with advice and guidance.  If necessary, people will be offered continued telephone/skype support.

 

Time to Connect will provide a listening ear if families are concerned about anything or need support with accessing / signposting to services

 

Time to Connect can be contacted using the webform available  here  https://www.family-support.org.uk/guides .  A family, or you (with the families consent) can complete the very simple form and someone will call them back within 24 hours.

 

We have also updated our digital service (www.family-support.org.uk) which now has a number of additional resources and materials for families to access that will help with home schooling, entertainment and distraction.

 

Our virtual family centre will launch on Monday with pre-recorded material with the first live-streams on Tuesday/

To all parents and carers,

 

I hope everyone is well.

 

As your child will tell you, i am constantly speaking to the children about listening to stories without a screen to distract. Please use the following link which is currently providing free stories to children during the Covid 19 crisis. There are some great stories, old and new here, so please make the effort to find something your child will enjoy.

I hope you find them useful

 

Stay safe.

 

Best wishes

I have attached 2 other documents. The first is a list of other websites you and your child may find useful. These cover English, Maths and Science.

 

I also attach a home learning leaflet for children in Early Year Foundation Stage - nursery and reception.

To all parents and carers,

 

I hope you are all well and staying safe during these difficult times. Please follow the guidance from the government. This changes often, so please look at the government Covid-19 websites regularly.

 

We have sent home the folders which contain work for each class. Please encourage your children to work through this over the next 2 weeks. It can be hard to motivate some children to stick at the work. If you aim for 2 hours intensive work every day, that is a good start. Of course, as always, your child should be reading for half an hour a day at least. If you have any problems with the work, please email frontdesk@oldoak.lbhf.sch.uk and your teacher will be in touch.

 

Can I remind everyone that you should stay at home. We are open for children of keyworkers whose parents are doing vital jobs to keep the country going.  We will never close to all children unless instructed to do so by the government or local authority, but please consider if it necessary to keep your child at home. 

 

IF IT IS AT ALL POSSIBLE, PLEASE KEEP YOUR CHILD AT HOME- IT IS SAFER FOR THEM AND YOU, AND SAFER FOR THE STAFF AT SCHOOL. 

 

Please get in touch if there is anything we can do. We are available to you on the email at frontdesk@oldoak.lbhf.sch.uk or the school telephone. We may not be able to help but we can direct you to services which can. Remember children who normally receive free school lunches are also entitled during this time.

 

Stay safe 

 

Mr. Brown
