Home Learning Packs

 

Hello Everyone,

 

Below you will see an attachment for a Home Learning Pack, these are being made for any children who have to self isolate at home. However, I realise that many of you might want to do some extra learning at home or want to do a little catch up. Each week a pack will be uploaded that roughly follows the scheme of learning that we will be doing at home It will contain Reading, Writing and Maths lessons alongside an afternoon lesson each day. They are a blend of printable resources and online lessons to try and make them follow what we are doing in class as much as possible. Any questions feel free to ask :)

Shakin' Stevens - Merry Christmas Everyone (Karaoke Version)

This is the song that we will be learning for our little Christmas show - Enjoy!

Pudsey!

 

Another lovely week in Mosaic, ending with our big pyjama day on Friday. We decided to spend a little bit of time researching Children in Need, it's history and some of the amazing things that the programme has contributed to. The children then turned this information into the beautiful two-page spreads below.

Autumn 2 - Week 1

 

Well we made it another week! The children once again have had a lovely week back in the classroom, we have done a little bit of fantasy novels, learnt a little about measurement and picked apart the history of nursing and the NHS. To finish it off we decided to make a lovely little display to commemorate Remembrance Day next week.

Recovery Pack

 

Some of you have raised a few concerns over 'gaps' that might have occurred during the children's time away from learning. We currently have a recovery curriculum in place to hopefully fill as many of these gaps in school and go over a few skills that might have been missed, the children sometimes are aware they are re-doing some skills and other times they are seamlessly embedded within current learning.

 

For any parents who would like to enhance their children's learning, one of the best things you could do is to re-enforce some of the Year 3 learning that they might have missed or forgotten with their time away. Below is a learning pack with the vast majority of learning that took place during last year, each page has a few simple questions for each skill, they shouldn't take longer that a few minutes per skill. The pack is huge and by no means is anyone expected to complete it all, but if you think it would be a help then it can be downloaded below, there is also a guidance pack to help with each skill as well as the answers for each question. Any questions feel free to contact me!

The Final Day

 

And here we are, at the end of our first half term! What a 7 and a bit weeks it has been! The children have been absolutely amazing, they have come back ready to learn, enquire and investigate! For our final day it only seemed right that since we all won't be having a 'normal' Halloween this year, for the children to have a Halloween day at school. We have spent the day making Halloween masks, doing some mindfulness colouring and finished it off with a 'treasure hunt' trick or treat whereby the children had a grid map of the school and had to find the clues that would spell out their answer. Once they had their answer they had to read it back to me and retrieve their goodie bag! An amazing day had by all!

Surreal Science

 

This week has seen the children really become mini scientists for our topic, with a mucky lesson learning out how a stomach works and re-creating one using bags, orange juice and crackers. Our main investigation this week was how to make toothpaste, rather than follow instructions or work together, I simply provided the children with the ingredients needed and allowed them to use a trial and error method of making their toothpaste. The children had a great time having to actually work things our for themselves and being really happy with the end creations!

Practical Packaging

 

The children today devised packaging in the shape of a lunch box. The packaging was for a healthy meal that the children came up with during a Science lesson, it was meant to hold one of each of the food groups to create a healthy, balanced meal.

This Week in Mosaic

 

Another well-rounded week in Mosaic class. We have completed some beautiful art inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, learnt about negative numbers by playing a board game backwards, learnt a new programme on the computers and written some amazing letters! The children are really settling into their learning again, their stamina for writing is better, their confidence in class discussions is showing and they look like they are really proud of the work they are producing! I am looking forward to seeing what next week brings!

Another Great Week!

 

Well, another wonderful week has gone with the children all seeming to be be settling down really well. Work is flowing, the children are engaging in classroom discussions and the work is coming our at a very high quality! This week we created a wonderful two-page spread using information we collected about Teeth and how to look after them. The children researched the information using their laptops, created a fact file during English and then used this information to help create their amazing spreads!

Well what a first week it has been! 

 

Mosaic have come back ready to go, their behaviour towards learning has been outstanding in their first week back. I have been blown away by how quickly they have dived back into their learning, this can be shown by the image above of our beautiful Hall of Fame which is already showcasing some of the amazing fact files that they have all created this week in English.

Mosaic Year 4 Expactations

Burps, Bottoms and Bile - Medium Term Plan

Welcome Back!

 

Hi Mosaic,

 

Tomorrow is the day! I can't wait to welcome everyone back into the classroom, Mrs Eddison and myself are very excited to see everyone and just thought we would share some notes that might help:

 

  • Our P.E day is on a Thursday, children are to arrive and stay in their P.E kit, no need to get changed while restrictions are in place. Please dress for outdoor P.E as we will be taking almost all of our P.E outside where available. P.E starts next Thursday so no need to send them in kit tomorrow!
  • Pencil cases are welcome in the classroom at the moment, if you don't have one please don't worry, we have set up resource packs for those who need them.
  • Children will not be using the pegs outside the classroom to hang anything up, coats will be on the back of chairs and bags underneath, for this reason could I ask that children bring in as little as possible to minimise clutter. There will be a table for our class to place their brought in packed lunches.
  • As much as I would love to see anything they have done/created during their time away, can I ask the children not to bring anything in to show and tell just yet while restrictions are still in place, hopefully we will find a time for this in the near future!

 

Obviously with everything changing so quickly this information is subject to change, both the school and myself will try and keep you informed as quickly as possible!

 

If you have any questions over the coming days or weeks, please feel free to email me with any worries/queries/questions. I will try and get back to you as soon as I can although please understand I might not be as quick as during lockdown.

 

Looking forward to seeing all of you tomorrow! :)

End of Term/Summer Learning

 

Hello Everyone,

 

Here we are, the last day of term! I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone, parents and children alike, for persevering through this difficult time. You all showed true Mosaic spirit both while in school and at home!

 

Below you will find a video made up of every image you have sent me since the start of lockdown, which added up to a cool 587 pictures! It is a testament to just how awesome you have all been and I hope you enjoy looking through the unique year we have all had.

 

Underneath the video are some summer packs for English, Maths and Topic alongside a document that holds links to various different online learning platforms should you want any summer learning to take place, there is absolutely no requirement to use them and in fact I would urge you all to enjoy the holidays as much as possible! There are also links, documents and platforms that will still be readily available through the Home Learning page.

 

I cannot wait to see you all in September! Enjoy the video :)

What a year it's been! Here is a video to show just how amazing you all have been, both in school at during the lockdown! Every picture I have been sent since the start of lockdown has been used somewhere in this video alongside photos from school, enjoy! :)

15th July Home Learning

 

The last two days of school! I am going to do things differently today.  This is our last week with our free subscription of Nearpod (they gave us 4 months instead of 4 weeks!) so if there are any that you haven't looked at or been on any of the trips then be sure to use any codes still active (they each last a month!)

 

Your task over the next two days is to pick something you have really enjoyed during the whole of our Home Learning, any lesson, topic, subject that you enjoyed. I then would like you to create me a piece on it, it can be via a two-page spread, PoewPoint, poster or a piece or art, anything really! Pick something that really stood out for you over the last 15 weeks and use the next couple of days to really turn it into a nice little presentation. As mentioned earlier, you can use any of the nearpod codes going back up to 1 month if you need to recap anything.

 

Tomorrow, I will post our "home learning" activities for our new topic alongside a little Summer activity pack to keep those of you that would like such a thing busy!

Our Virtual School Trips are now going to be at 4.00pm on Friday, don't worry I will give you a reminder on Thursday! Also, the Mosaic Challenge videos will now be made and uploaded on a Saturday rather than a Friday, so all challenges are now in by Friday evening rather than Thursday.
 
I will still be able to respond to all your emails, questions and queries and will upload your daily learning to the class page as usual.

I hope you have all been able to enjoy some of the sun this week, it's Friday which means it is time for another school trip! Because I have been in school this week the trip sadly doesn't have the little bits of my audio over it as I did forgot to record them this week (sorry!), but everything else should be exactly the same! The code will be sent out at 10.50am with the trip starting a little after 11.00am.

 

We are going to start using Friday's for spellings again, instead of an English Nearpod on Friday you will now have a little spelling pack sent out, there is a some handwriting with them as well as a game and a word search to do.

 

The Challenge Video will be uploaded this afternoon as I need to record some information about next terms work to add to it.

Good morning Mosaic,

Below you will find the links to today’s learning, once again everything will be placed on the Class Page daily. For Maths this week White Rose seem to be revising unit and non unit fractions, if some of you feel you have already covered this feel free to click on their alternative plans, the worksheets and answers for both schemes are on the class page under today’s work.

Remember to take part in the Mosaic Challenge if you want, I will remind myself to send a last minute reminder on Thursday as usual.


I am in school all this week, nothing will change in terms of sending out daily Nearpods and Kahoots etc, just to let you know that I might not be as quick in responding to emails! I still plan on responding to all as usual and we will still have our weekly school trip this Friday! 😊

15th May Home Learning

 

Good morning Mosaic,

 

It's Friday which means we are heading on our school trip today! We are going to the Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands for something a little different. As always I will send the code out for the trip and post here at 10.50am with the lesson starting a few minutes after 11.00am when I am sure everyone who wants to take part has joined!

 

For English today instead of a Nearpod we have a little writing practice, practising writing numbers as words, it was a key target for us all to hit in Year 3 so a little practice on paper at home would be fantastic!

 

Thank you for all your lovely projects once again this week, I will look to have the video ready with all the pictures and next weeks challenge on as soon as possible today :)

Good morning Mosaic,
 
I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend with the Sun! This week we have some lightly different English lessons for you, combining a few of the different aspects such as handwriting, spelling, comprehension and writing all around. Afternoon lessons stay as usual with a mix of History, Science, Geography, Art, Computing and of course our school trips on Friday, this week we are visiting Holland (we definitely are this time!) Today you have a science lesson!
 
For the White Rose Maths, some of you will have already noticed that the website does not have the worksheets and answers next to the lessons anymore, it will say you need to have a subscription, not to worry! I have placed all of this weeks worksheets and answers into two merged documents under today's work!
 
I hope to see as many Mosaic challenges as possible once again, enjoy your week :)

First things first, there is apparently a flyby of the Red Arrows over Colchester this morning, they should be reaching us for about 10am, so if you have a few minutes and would like to see the flyover pop your head out a window or head into your garden to try and see. (I hope we get a good view!)

Good morning Mosaic,

 

Please can I have your videos for my class project in today, the ones I have had so far have been so lovely! It would be great to have everyone in the video for tomorrow!

 

Tomorrow's virtual 'school trip' will go ahead at 11:00am again, same concept as last week's with me sending out the code just before, but I am looking to add my voice to make it easier for you to understand from home. As always, feel free to email me, send me work, ask me questions etc. :)

29th April - Home Learning

 

Good morning Mosaic,

 

We have been advised to limit the amount of bulk emails that we are sending out as teachers, so from today I will not be sending out a daily morning email with the links, instead the work will be posted here on the class page (as it always has anyway) and this is how it can be accessed on a daily basis. Nothing else changes, you can still send me work, pictures, videos etc and I will reply as normal, just limiting the amount of bulk emails sent out. You can still contact me directly and I will still send out a weekly update.

 

Everyday the work will be posted under the date on our class page, I will keep previous links active on the page as well.

 

Apart from that I hope you enjoy today's learning, it is Wednesday so we have our ICT to enjoy this afternoon, this means you can go on either Hour of Code and get a certificate or access espresso coding and complete a module. Feel free to send me your certificate if you complete an entire section! :)

Mosaic Challenge V1.0

Hello Mosaic, welcome to your first 'big challenge'. Watch the video to find out what you need to do, resources will be below the video for use afterwards.

The deadline for submitting your Greek God or Goddess to me is Thursday 2nd April 12:00pm.

Maths Home Learning 

 

White Rose are releasing daily lessons in weekly batches on their home learning website linked below. These lessons follow the exact day-to-day learning that we would be following in school for Maths. Each lesson has a video for input to go through the learning, a worksheet to demonstrate understanding and an answer sheet to check over at the end. I would highly recommend using this for your daily Maths lessons at home!

Immersive Experiences

 

Below are two links that I think the children will really enjoy at home, one is for Now>Press>Play, An immersive audio experience for the children to listen to experiences and act out the instructions given. Best to have a set of headphones on, even better if you have a set of wireless headphones for freedom of movement, but neither are required to use.

 

The other is for Audible, they are offering free audio books for children during this time away for school, simply click on the link and start listening for free!

Below is a link to the expectations of Year 3, they set out some guidelines for what the children should know by the end of year. I hope this might give you some idea as to what you should be looking for when reading over your child's work.

Home Learning Book Guide

This PowerPoint takes you through the blue home learning book that children have brought home and includes some extra word mats and resources that might aid learning.

New! - IT and Coding

 

I'm sure you are all keeping busy with the learning packs, books, Kahoot's and challenges on top of whatever else you are doing at home. I thought I'd throw a nice IT/Coding resource into the mix. Hour of Code is a great site that provides activities and games that require the children to code their way through levels. The games are all based on popular franchises/movies/games etc and the children receive a certificate upon completion! Simply click the link below, select a level (American Grade System - Grades 2-5 for Mosaic) and your sorted! Enjoy!

Sports Relief

To celebrate Sports Relief today, Mr Reeve offered every class in the school a quick workout in the hall in the morning. The children (and myself) were given a ruthless 15 minutes exercise routine. Safe to say we were all a little out of breath after returning to the classroom and back to our work!

Potting Plants

After a terrible first try at planting Broad Beans (not a single one grew!), I popped out to buy some new ones for everyone and some better pots and compost to plant them in. This afternoon we discussed what might have gone wrong with our first batch (not enough water/light/space) before using a mixture of soil from our school garden and compost to plant our new seeds. Let's hope we see some results this time!
The children made some stunning 2-page spreads of the life cycle of a plant in Science today! They were so happy with their work I decided what better way to showcase than to publish them on our website. Well done everyone!

More World Book Day...

During the afternoon we decided to make a little trip down to Early Years to do some peer reading. The little ones we so excited to see us and demonstrate their reading to us! The children behaved beautifully, working with children around the classroom and reading with fluency and expression.

We have had a brilliant World Book Day! The children looked absolutely amazing in all of their costumes and accessories. We have spent the day learning more about the history of World Book Day while also making special, bespoke, mindfullness bookmarks to use in our reading.

 

Thank you to all the parents for sorting out such incredible costumes for the children and supporting such a lovely day!

The day the chairs went on strike!

The children arrived today to see the chairs had disappeared! A message was left on the board reading 'Mr Young has decided that you no longer need chairs in the classroom, so he has removed them. If you think that you do need chairs in the classroom, you will need to write a persuasive letter to to convince him to give them back!"

 

The children then set out planning, drafting and writing their letters to me. It was quite a chore finding a comfy position to write but as you can see they became creative with where they placed themselves. After reading some of their very convincing letters, I reluctantly decided that they do in fact require chairs in the classroom so returned them before break.

More Forces and Magnets

The children enjoyed a small experiment today as well explored how strong the magnets we had were and whether adding more magnets together would increase their strength or not. The children worked well in their groups and each came up with some great conclusions to write down in their write ups.

Badminton

The children have really enjoyed developing their badminton skills this half term in our indoor P.E sessions. We have learnt some of the basic skills such as forehand and backhand grip as well as getting the serve right.

 

They have been extremely well behaved during these sessions, allowing us a lot more time to practice our learning each week. While the children are definitely improving, there has yet to be someone who can take on the mighty Mr Young!

Forces and Magnets

The children have been exploring the world of Forces and Magnets during Science this term. Part of this topic involved us experimenting with friction and how it can affect the amount of force applied to make an object move. 

 

The children have really enjoyed their science experiments this term, we have looked at what items are magnetic, are two magnets stronger than one and does friction affect the force needed to make an item move.

Mediterranean Food Tasting Afternoon

Today the children took part in a Mediterranean food tasting in the classroom. They we able to try a range of meats, cheeses, breads and fruits all from countries bordering the Mediterranean sea, these included:

  • Chorizo, Salami and Prosciutto Ham
  • Parmesan, Mozzarella and Goats Cheese
  • Foccacia, Sour Dough and Pitta
  • Olives and Spanish Oranges

 

The children were brilliant throughout, they all were eager to try the new foods to them and really dived into the spirit of the afternoon. Some found new foods that they are eager to eat more of, some found hidden tastes that definitely didn't agree with them but all in all it was a wonderful afternoon. 

The children had an amazing time at Pizza Express today. They learnt all about Pizza, it's ingredients and a bit of its History before taking part in making their own Margherita Pizza fresh from the restaurants ingredients. Afterwards, they were treated to a Pizza and Movie lunch in the classroom where they tasted their creations. 

 

The children were incredibly well behaved, with the Manager and Chef commenting on how well they responded to instructions and composed themselves during the activities. I am extremely proud of them! 

Forest School Friday

Below is a list of resources and typical home learning tasks that will help with your child's learning this year. Some are simple things that can be done in everyday life, and others are links to websites and apps that provide resources to teach to the curriculum.
Below is a PowerPoint that was present at the 'Meet the Teacher' Evening for those who could not attend or those who would like to look over again. It displays some of the learning that will take place over the next year, the topics we will cover and some expectations for the children. Underneath is the Year 3/4 general spellings lists as promised.

Our gardens

World Book Day 2019

The children in Mosaic class looked fabulous in their costumes for World Book Day. We even had four Harry Potters! Together we read and then retold the story of The Enormous Turnip as well as making our own bookmarks and book front covers.
