Congo Class home learning, week beginning Monday 8th February 2021

A massive well done to all of Congo Class this week for braving the snow and bitter cold! I am really proud of the work you have produced, especially the area maths, the poems on Change and your history on mummification.

A special shout-out to Scott, who is our Superstar of the Week this week. We loved your poem on Happiness and your recording of Tomato Mummification!

Great maths, Chloe

Week ending Friday 4th December 2020

Well done, Congo Class, for another great week! From Explorers Day through to making origami times tables fortune tellers, we have been so busy. And if any children seem to be experts on cats, it’s is because of a great online assembly we had from the Cats Protection League, which was so informative.

Apologies about homework, but the printer isn’t working right now. All spellings and handouts are on Google Classroom, plus the children have written details in their homework books.

Part of children’s homework is to make a decoration for it. Let’s hope we can post a jolly picture next week as, right now, it is looking a little bare. Many thanks to Autumn for being the first to bring in a bit of spare trimming!

Maths Champ!

Who is our mysterious times tables champion? Clue: they’re not at the top of the school.

A fantastic well done to someone who has been using to practise their tables. They have realised it’s fun as well as rewarding. What a feeling, knowing you’re the best in the world.

Fressingfield Primary school is looking for someone to challenge our current champion. Will it be you?

Hi Class Danube,

You have all done so well this term, I am really proud of you all! Here are some of the lovely things you’ve been up to:

Jayden has been super busy completing all the work set, finishing his Geography and Science projects and being very active! Well done Jayden!

Reuben has been working very hard, got a new pet hamster called Fluffy and been driving the digger. Your hamster is so cute Reuben!

Edward’s been super busy completing all his school work and doing so many exciting activities. He found grass snake eggs and a snake skin that’s almost 2ft in length!

Well done for all your hard work,

Miss Adamson

Planning for week beginning Monday 13th July 2020 – Congo Class

A massive well done to all home teachers, as well as home learners; we are now in the ‘home straight’! In this last week, it would be fantastic if children were to able to get their newspaper report finished (more on the planning sheet below) and to feel confident using written methods for multiplication and division. For science and history, we are aiming to ‘wrap up the learning’. For other foundation subjects, I know families have been either working from the plans from the start of this half-term (see planning sheet) or doing some of their own creative and physical activities.

Home Learning for Congo Class – week beginning Monday 6th July 2020

Well done to all home learners for all your hard work this week. It has been great to read and see your work, especially the news reports. If you are in school next week, your learning will be broadly the same as the home learners. If you are in school the following week, this will be your last whole week of learning! Both children and their families deserve massive respect for the learning you have done this academic year, both in school and at home!

Hi Class Danube,

Well done for another busy week of learning at home! Thank you to everyone who’s sent in pictures and videos – it’s so lovely to see what you’ve been doing!

Bella and Daisy have been busy writing jokes and retelling stories. I hope you enjoy the jokes as much as I did!

Hector’s been busy using a moth trap at home to safely catch moths (unharmed) and look after them. I think you can agree how impressive they look close up!

Jayden’s had another week with lots of brilliant learning, keeping active and using Purple Mash as well as completing all the work I’d set. I’m really impressed with how motivated you always are Jayden!

Lydia’s been using her computing skills to write about sunflowers, well done Lydia! You are so brilliant at typing!

Oliver’s had a very busy week as always and completed all the work and read lots of library books. We are so proud of you Oliver!

Summer has been extremely busy and completed all the work we’ve asked and she’s done so many other activities too. I love all the pictures Summer, thank you for sending them in!

Thank you so much for sending in your pictures, we love to see what you’ve been doing!

Have a great weekend,

Miss Adamson

Friday 12th June 2020 – Congo Class

A big well done to both our home and school learners this week, especially Kieran (in school) and Thomas (at home), who have both worked their socks off this week. What great role-models for Fressingfield Primary School you are!

Shout outs to our Year 4 artists this week, who have produced some stunning collage work, and a big well done to our resident poets. I have also sent some of those poems to Six Sense, our local parish magazine, so keep an eye out for those. They all show real maturity.

Sienna, you always try so hard with the art activities! You are very creative and enjoy using your artistic skills in your work. I love how beautifully you presented your Science findings:

Reuben, you have had another very busy week with all your learning. You always challenge yourself to do all the work I set and you often give yourself extra work as you are very self-motivated. Here are some of the things you’ve been doing:

Oscar, you have enjoyed being outside and have done so many lovely things while exploring near where you live. You have been challenging yourself to read tricky books which I’m really impressed with!
