Last day of school!

Good morning Key Stage One 🙂 I cannot believe this is the last day of school! And what an odd last day of school it is.

On behalf of myself, Miss Lister and Miss Topliss I just want to say a MASSIVE well done for all your hard work over these strange times. As a Key Stage One Crew we have kept each other going and we are all so proud of you.

Please continue to stay safe and have a fantastic summer, you truly deserve it!

2P New Teacher Meet

Good morning current Year 1’s!

I hope you are all doing ok.
As you know, transition in school has been unable to happen in the way we would have liked this year. As a result, I know that you might be feeling a little more anxious about moving into Year 2 than usual. To try and help with this, I have arranged a short, online Google meeting that you are welcome to attend just so that you can have a chance to see me and put a face to a name (there will be a chance for your Parents and Carers to meet me properly during the first week back).
I will be offering 2 chances to meet me this morning. There is no need for you to be in both meetings so please only plan for one of the times! I have included the meeting code below. The times are either 9.30am or 11.30am.This is not meant to be scary in any way. If you simply say hello and maybe one thing you like or might be looking forward to, then this is all that is needed.
I hope this is useful to you and look forward to seeing you later this morning. If you are not able to attend, or don’t wish to, then enjoy your summer break and I look forward to meeting you in September.
EDIT: Thank you to everyone who was able to join me this morning. It was lovely to see some new faces and begin to learn some names. I also want to thank those who have emailed me a piece of writing to say hello. I really enjoyed reading them. I have now removed the link from above as there are no more meetings planned. Have a fabulous summer and I will see you all in September.

Myself as maths.

Today I want you to create a some maths equations all about yourself, here is mine as an example.

I am 17 + 10 years old.

I have 0 x 0 pets.

My birth date is 9 + 20.

My birth month is 69 – 61.

My shoe size is 2 x 2.

My favourite number is 50 – 21.

My whole name has 7 x 2 letters.

I have 10 – 9 sister.

I am excited to teach Year 4 + 0.

 

Can you now create your own and share with a friend to work out?

You could even share this with your new teacher for them to get to know you 🙂

Thursday 16th July English learning

Good morning, here is your English learning for today.

I would like you to create your own little year book. You can either draw your year book or write in your book, it is completely up to you.

These are things I would like you to have a think about:

  • Who your friends are.
  • Any school trips you enjoyed this year. Which was your favourite?
  • A funny moment this year. What really made you laugh?
  • Achievements. What are you most proud of?
  • Your favourite thing about school.
  • Your favourite expedition this year.
  • What will you miss the most?

You can share your year books with mlotysz@ploverschool.co.uk for me to have  a look at, I look forward to seeing what you have enjoyed about school this year.

Meet your new teacher!

As this school year comes to an end, we start to think ahead to next year. Our children have been informed who their teacher is going to be next year, had the chance to find out a little bit about them and are hopefully writing about themselves to share with their new teacher.

School restrictions during Covid-19 have made it impossible to complete the transition activities we would normally put in place to support your child with their move to their new class, however we would like to offer all children the opportunity to meet with their new children ‘virtually’.

We have arranged Google Meets on Thursday and Friday with all of our teachers. We have tried where possible to offer two times to avoid clashing times with classes and to provide some choice – children do not need to join both Google Meets.

Meeting joining codes will be shared via email and Google classroom.

Key Stage One Expedition

Here is the big unveiling of the fantastic work you have produced to add to our time capsule!

Key Stage One have worked extremely hard during their time away from school and have produced a fabulous end product as a result of this. We as teachers are very proud of the work that has been produced and believe the children should be very proud of themselves too.

Thank you to all for your hard work and support during your time at home, we hope you are as delighted as we are with the finished product.

To view fantastic pieces of work that have been produced throughout the expedition, please scan the QR code and take a look.

Wednesday 15th July English learning

Good morning, here is your English learning for today. If you need any help please contact mlotysz@ploverschool.co.uk

 

Today you can pick what task you would like to complete. There are a few for you to choose from, but remember you only need to pick one. 

This will be a piece of writing for your teacher to look at next year, you could bring it with you on your first day back at school. 

 

  • A piece of writing about your favourite subject.
  • A poem about yourself.
  • A letter to your new teacher about yourself.
  • A picture of yourself with lots of adjectives to describe you.

Don’t forget to share your work with me, you never know it might appear on the blog!
