Worship

Owen, our Children and Families worker is filming weekly worship for all our children, and parents. For this final term we are focusing on Respect, one of our core values. The children, who are in school, enjoyed the first one last week. Hopefully, you can enjoy them at home as well.

Maths

At Ann Cam we are members of the CanDoMaths Club. In school teachers plan their lessons using resources produced by the club. They have now produced some parent packs to help you with home learning. They will be perfect because your children will be familiar with the types of questions, and also the characters used in the questions.

They have also produced some videos to help you with some of the workouts.

Please find the workouts on the Maths page under the Home Learning Tab.

English Club

Please see the message below from Mrs Bloomfield. You don't have to be in English Club to write a poem. I'm sure Mrs Bloomfield would love to see poems from all our children.

Hello English Club!

This term we would be looking at poetry, so even though we are all at home, I want to give you the chance to write some poems if you would like to.

Each week we usually look at a different kind of poem. Here are some of the kinds we would be looking at: Limerick, Haiku, Never Poems, Sonnets and Nonsense Poems.

You can google the types of poems to find out more about them if you need to, and this link will explain Never Poems:

https://writeshop.com/how-to-write-a-silly-poem/

If you would like to write some poems, they can be any kind of poems you like, in any style and on any theme – but if you are stuck for ideas, how about trying to write some about what life is like in lockdown.

Email me your work, or a photo of your poem to carol.bloomfield@anncam.gloucs.sch.uk

I look forward to seeing your poems and to seeing you all again.

Mrs Bloomfield

Maths

The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) has produced a suite of materials ‘Support for maths learning and teaching during school closures’, which includes the first set of video lessons for primary age children.  ‘These short videos are intended to provide primary school pupils with interactive lessons while they are at home.  Teachers can choose how regularly they set them, but it is important that, within each batch, they are set in the suggested order.  Most lessons are 15-20 minutes long, each ending with suggested follow-up tasksThe current plan is for a new batch of five lessons to be added here every week.’

Please follow the links on this Powerpoint document.
