Teachers and Teaching Assistants not listed above will be undertaking full Remote Learning duties for the children not able to attend.

Please note the reversion to our more normal 8:50am / 3:15 (KS1) or 3:30pm (KS2) start and finish times, and any changed waiting Zones for drop-off and collection.

Children should all wear PE kits tomorrow. From Thursday onwards, your child will be told their PE days and will usually wear school uniform except on those days when they have PE, in which case they can attend in their PE kits.

Lunchtimes: The meals service will operate as per the Autumn term’s arrangements.

Children will receive the education that they would have had if this lockdown had not occurred; they will follow the full current curriculum for their year group, with an additional reading / writing/maths focus to address any remaining gaps from the previous lockdown.

Breakfast club (school-run) will continue for the PP-eligible children who usually attend.

WASPS breakfast club and after-school care will continue to be available – please contact them directly.

Snacks: Nursery (open to all pupils) will continue to provide snacks. Reception children and all other children – please provide your own (healthy please – no chocs/crisps!) snacks this week.

All current COVID risk assessments and operating systems used in last summer / last term will still apply and you can view these on the COVID page of our website. Please follow all our COVID-safety measures -social distancing, strictly remaining in waiting zones and not allowing your children to play with children from other classes when doing so, mask-wearing whilst on site (all adults unless medically exempt) and using our one-way systems.

  • For children not able to attend school currently:

Your children will receive education remotely via TEAMS as per our Remote Learning Plan. Their teachers will explain the arrangements to them online via their current Class TEAMS group today, 5th January, at 2pm.

After this, those class TEAMS groups will be temporarily archived and children will access the lessons by new TEAMS groups organised by Year (children will be automatically enabled to access these pages using their existing TEAMS log-ins). Daily live teaching will be provided as per timetables posted on these new pages, and tasks will be uploaded with the expectation that they are submitted to the teacher via these pages for teacher review and assessment / feedback.

   The first live sessions will be timetabled on the 6th Jan from 1:30pm to enable the pack-collection below. In subsequent days they will be timetabled to start in the mornings.

Additionally, you are asked to collect paper-based packs for your child from the school playground / waiting shelters tomorrow, 6th January, between 9:15am and 10:30am. These will provide resources for your child to use to support online-set tasks.

Children eligible for Free School Meals: It is our current understanding that vouchers will not be issued as yet but that packed-lunches will be available for collection. A separate PING has detailed arrangements for collection of provided packed meals from the school Office from tomorrow.

There is a vital necessity for all children not able to attend school currently to fully engage with the online tasks set and teachers will maintain registers daily of children attending online /submitting tasks. Without such engagement, this enforced absence from school will leave your children further behind their classmates. I know that the love and care you always show your children extends to a determination that they get the best from their education and I also know how difficult home-schooling can be. I greatly sympathise with the position in which you find yourselves again; please remember we are here to help at all times.

With best wishes

Yours Sincerely

I Williams

 

Welcome to our web page.

Our Class Team:

Class Teachers - Mrs Haury and Miss Walters

Classroom Support - Mrs Tickle

We are a mixed Y5 and 6 class who always strive to be the best we can be. We are proud of the progress we make in lessons, and as we grow and learn, we are proud to be becoming good people.

We hope you enjoy looking through our class page. It will be updated with photographs and news regularly, and you will find all the curriculum information you need on here.

HOMEWORK: Children should read, practise their spelling using the handwriting sheet and learn their tables every night. Maths arithmetic homework will be set on Fridays and be returned on Mondays ready to be reviewed in the Maths lesson. Handwriting sheets should be ready for checking on a Monday. Half-termly topic homework will be set based on the Knowledge Organisers for that half-term.

READING AWARDS: Reading awards assemblies are held at the end of each half term.  To earn a Bronze certificate children need to read a minimum of five times each week. Platinum and Diamond Awards are awarded to children who go above and beyond and even read in the holidays! Children who receive a Diamond Award will receive a £1.00 book token to go towards a book from our school shop. Help class 11 to win the trophy and read lots at home!

PE: PE lessons take place twice a week on a Tuesday and Thursday - on PE days the children will be expected to come into school wearing their PE kit. The children regularly do the mile on our track. 

MUSIC: Class 11 will be learnining to play the flute. Lessons will take place on Wednesdays so flutes will need to be in school for this.

English Speaking Board Poems:

Meet the Teacher

Due to current circumstances, we will be unable to invite you in to school to meet the teacher. We's love to see you all face-to-face but until we can, the powerpoint below has all the information you'll need to know about your child's new class. Do let us know if you have any further questions.

ACCESSING MS TEAMS FOR CHILDREN

Please see below 'Quick Guide to MS Teams for Parents 2020' guide as to how your children can set up themselves ready to interact with their teacher.

All children with current log-ins will automatically be logged in to their new September 2020 Class when they access the system. 

Please note that children will need to access MS class team pages in the event of a local lockdown or if individually self-isolating. 

Children will also need to log-in to the system. These log-ins consist of a 4 digit number which will form the start of their email address, and a password. PARENTS / CARERS NEED TO ASK YOUR CHILD’S CLASS TEACHER, VIA THE FACEBOOK LINK ON THIS CLASS WEBPAGE, FOR THEIR UNIQUE  4-DIGIT LOG-IN CODE AND PASSWORD.

e.g Joe Bloggs is given code: 1234,  therefore email address will be 1234@christchurchprimary.warrington.sch.uk. Every child should add this exact e-mail address to their 4-digit log-in code.

Password:   Blog34

Please note:

Third parties cannot contact your children via MS TEAMS as it is an account password-only system. However, children can send messages to each other. It is your responsibility to supervise your children’s use of MS TEAMS and to remind your children that they must remain respectful of school rules and expected behaviour standards in relation to any such messages. NB: school IT admin have access to all messages. Thank you.

 

CLICK HERE FOR CLASS FACEBOOK PAGE 

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU CAN 'FRIEND REQUEST' YOUR CHILD'S NEW CLASS FACEBOOK PAGE ANYTIME AND THE CLASS TEACHER WILL RESPOND TO YOUR REQUEST AT THE START OF THE AUTUMN TERM. PLEASE ALSO SEND THE PAGE A PRIVATE MESSAGE STATING YOUR CHILD'S NAME. 

NB: PARENT OR CARER enquiries only – children should not use this method to contact class teachers.

Dear children, Parents and Carers: our online safety teaching emphasises that internet use always comes with risks; it is all about what we do when we come across something online that worries or frightens you. Teachers have judged all the links here to lead to safe online learning, but not everything on the platforms (such as youtube) is safe of course. So parents, monitor your child’s online activity and if you are concerned about any content they access, report it via the CEOPS button on the safeguarding page or home page of our website. Children, do the same.

 

Children should not try to individually video-chat or telephone staff, as for safeguarding reasons staff cannot interact 1:1 with a child in this way - any questions should be posted on the class 'General' chat please. Also, whilst MS TEAMS is a secure site, you should only allow your child to upload pictures of themselves to MS TEAMS if it is relevant to a learning activity or task they have been doing or something of clear and ‘innocent’ interest, they are suitably dressed and you are aware that other children, despite our instructions to the contrary, may have the capacity to copy pictures of your child and use them in other applications.

Spellings

In addition to weekly spellings it is important for your child to practise the common exception words for their year group. We distribute these over each half term. Letters will be sent home with the spellings for this half term.

Reading Plus

Do continue to encourage the use of this at home. It is designed to improve reading fluency and comprehension as well as developing inference skills (which are vital skills for the SATs). Children can access this at home using their own log-in and it will contribute towards a reading award as long as it is signed by an adult in school planners.

Recommended Reading for Fun

Mathletics.

Mathletics is a great programme to use in school and at home. It is designed to develop and improve all areas of mathematics from arithmetic to problem solving. It will be targeted to your child's particular year group and ability. Children can access this at home using their own log-in and can earn certificates each week. The maths class with the most points in a week also receives the Mathletics Trophy.
