There are some further class learning packs/books available for collection on Friday 22nd January. Weather permitting, the packs/books will be on tables outside, in front of Mrs Dickinson’s office. If the weather is bad then the packs will be inside the reception foyer. It is essential that you come at your allotted time and that you collect the pack and leave immediately. If your child is attending school, full or part-time, they will be given their pack in school. For those families who have more than one child in the school, please come to collect your packs at your youngest child’s slot.
Times to collect:
Ash class's haven’t arrived yet!
Many thanks for your support
You may choose to print off paper copies to work through OR work from the screen into your exercise books.
The reading comprehension booklets included in home-learning packs from school, can also be undertaken as optional additional English work.
Please use the timetable to support the structure of your learning daily. In order to provide consistency across the class/year groups and between children in school and at home, it would be appreciated if you could only cover that day's work. The timings of when your child does what within the day can remain flexible around your routines. However, if you have siblings in other classes, it may be more practical to have them all learning English, Maths etc at the same time. If you having difficulties printing off paper copies, your child can work from screen, recording answers and responses in books.
There is a legal requirement for us to provide a minimum of 4 hours learning a day. There are some pieces of work that are highlighted in red which we would like submitted as evidence (in addition to the exercise books, which will be collected on our return to school.) Please try to submit these pieces (either a photograph or electronic copy) by the following Monday to class emails.
We would still love to celebrate the learning and all your efforts at home so please join us for the Friday Zoom assemblies.
PurpleMash: If your child has forgotten their login details, please email us. We may contact your child via their PurpleMash email and they can contact each other and their teachers.
Once again, thank you for your continued support at this difficult time. If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact us on Willow@fendrayton.cambs.sch.uk
Please note: If you were unable to collect your child's home-learning packs with paper copy GPS booklets, the directed work set includes 2 pages for that day, one from Yr3 and Yr4 Classroom Secret pack. For eg. 11.1.21 complete Monday's page from Yr3 pack and then move onto Monday from Yr4.
(We have used the previous year group's packs in order to consolidate on prior learning and include new skills that have yet to be taught due to catch-up from previous school closure.)

Welcome to Willow
We hope you and your Families are well and were able to enjoy a restful break over Christmas.
After Monday's announcement of school closure, our plans are in the process of change and Willow will put on hold our Spring term topic. We shall post weekly work on our class page which will include daily English (Classroom Secrets Home Learning Packs and Pobble activities) - Reading and Writing (GPS), Maths (WhiteRose) and another Foundation subject (this may be in the form of a cross-curricular mini-topic.)
You may continue to contact Mrs.de Lancey-Wheeler and Mrs.Woodroff on our class email:Willow@fendrayton.cambs.sch.uk
ENGLISH and GEOGRAPHY - 6.1.21 -8.1.21
Extra activities - Try the writing tasks on Literacy Shed. Recounting the journey from Robin's viewpoint.
By the end of this first full week (Wk/c 7.9.20) your Yr4/5 child should come home with a 'reading book' from school and their purple Reading for Pleasure Journal. The reading books are made up of 'free reader' fiction books (from our 'bubble' library selection) and for some children, accompanied by schemed books too, to support their continued decoding.
Your child will have been guided by an adult in selecting their 'free reader' books, however, if your child is struggling with the level of text (decoding and comprehension) then we can make suitable changes. Please be patient, as this process may take a little while to get right.
The AIM at this level in school, is reading for pleasure. Children are,of course,allowed (and encouraged) to read additional books from home too.
are like scrapbook diaries, to record our explorations as a reader. During and after completing any book or text, please encourage your child to write down for eg. any new words and meanings, draw and write about an interesting character, write a short book recommendation. YOU WILL FIND FURTHER GUIDANCE IN THE JOURNAL and more to follow over the next few weeks, in order to know how best to support your child.
Parents/carers are also allowed to write in the Journals. We shall collect in Journals every few weeks to monitor reading routines and support progression, giving advice on 'what to read next' and offering opportunities to read from a range of genres and authors.
Please try to keep the school 'reading books' and Journal in bags daily (take them out to read at home and put back in bags.) If your child has finished their book(s) they just need to let the Willow Staff know and they can be changed.
Your child will participate in additional daily reading activities in school, from class shared texts, guided reading groups, reading for research and listening to a range of cross-curricular books read by Staff.
