Following feedback from children and parents, we have made some changes to the home learning packs for the final three weeks of the summer term.
Our aim is to inspire children to keep reading as we approach the summer holidays. Reading and writing tasks will now be based on a book, which your child can read themselves or listen to a teacher reading it to them. These audio files can be found on the Lower Band page of the website and we hope your child will enjoy our first book: The Wolves In The Walls.
We know how much children have been enjoying learning about different countries so we have challenged them to get creative with a series of tasks based on Italy. We love seeing the work every child has completed and would like to see what your child has been doing at home. Please do send us photos so that we can praise every child. To encourage this further, we have launched a weekly competition: this week, the children should design a poster and send it their teacher or upload it to our Twitter account - @CCJDownend. The posters will be judged by Mrs Osborne and a prize will be sent home to the winning entry. See the pack for more details!
Finally, we know that teaching maths at home can be tricky sometimes - especially as the methods taught in school have changed over the years. From now on, there will be short videos made by a CCJ teacher that go through the maths that is in the learning pack that day. These can also be found on the Lower Band page of the website and should be able to be viewed on most computers, tablets and phones.
Don't forget that there is also an extensive amount of resources and daily lessons available from BBC Bitesize Daily
and The Oak National Academy
if your child is still learning at home. Please also see the previous work packs from term 5 and 6 below. You may wish to look through these to complete tasks your child has not yet finished.
