This week we have got to grips a bit more will Google Classroom! 
I will be posting all resources on there from now on. Under 'classwork' you will find 'tasks' this is where you will complete something to send to me. It could be a quiz, a question or an opportunity for you to upload a piece of work. Make sure you press 'mark as done' so I can respond to you. You will find timetables and resources to help you with your learning too. The White Rose maths worksheets are under the 'Maths' heading. This week you will also find resources below but from next week resources will only be on Google Classroom. Lots of you are using Google Classroom but if you are having problems signing up please let me know.
Have a great week,

Hello Everybody,
Thank you to those that have already logged into google classroom. If you have not yet received details, please let me know and I can get them re-sent to you. Google classroom will be used as a platform to assist with learning at home. Whilst we transition, we will still be posting learning on the Shells and Pebbles home learning pages on the school website and sending emails.
For the next two week, we will be learning about tadpoles and frogs! Watch the retelling of the story 'Growing Frogs' below. There are lots of exciting challenges for you to get stuck into.
In Maths this week, Year 1 are grouping and sharing numbers and Year 2 are revisiting shape. Worksheets for year 1 and 2 are below. Remember to go to the white rose website for the introduction video and click on week 8.
Have Fun!

Hello Everyone,
This week we are continuing our theme of bees, there is so much to learn!
Have a go at any challenges that you didn't get time for last week and find some new challenges and puzzles below. It is also good to have another go at a challenge that you have already done and see what improvements you can make. Sometimes your first go isn't your best go! There is also a quiz to complete about the book 'The Honeybee'. This week in Maths, Year 1 are counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and Year 2 are practising fractions. The White Rose worksheets are ready to download below. 
I have loved seeing what you have been up to this week. I can't wait to see your learning this week, it really makes me smile!
Have a great week,

Hello everybody,
Well done for completing another week of learning at home! I have loved hearing about what you have been busy doing and I am very impressed with the quality of what you are producing. You should all be very proud of taking on the challenge of learning at home.
Above you will find learning for next week (don't look until Monday - everyone deserves a rest!).
You will also see a Disney workout which may be of interest to some of you who fancy a change from Joe Wicks! We have been so lucky with the weather, I know that lots of you are enjoying exercising outdoors too.
Thank you for your continued hard work and have a great weekend.
Best Wishes,
Miss Bradley

Hello all,
I hope you all enjoyed the bank holiday weekend. Thank you for the feedback on access to devices and internet at home, your comments are really useful in helping us to plan going forward.
Above you will find home learning for this week. In our habitats topic we will be learning about spiders ... eeek! This week I have spotted lots in my house! In English we will look at the story of the very busy spider. As mentioned last week, White Rose work sheets are not available online anymore. I have posted them above and will also be emailing them out to you. Don't worry if you can't print them, you can record answers however you choose to.
Keep up the great work everyone!

Hello Shells,
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
Above you will find the suggested learning for this this week. So many of you have had fun creating bug homes, searching for insects and adventuring outside this week. There is so much more to explore so Mrs Higgins and I have decided to continue the theme this week but focus on caterpillars and butterflies. I have set some fun writing challenges based on a story that lots of you will know 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar', there is also a link to a short animation too for you to watch which retells the story. I will emailing out the 'White Rose' maths worksheets as from next week these will be only available for subscribers but you will still find the video clips on the website.
There are lots more challenges based on caterpillars and butteries too!
Have fun.

Hello Shells,
Thank you for all of your messages and photos this week.
Above you will find the home learning for this week. Remember this is a suggested timetable, home learning will be different for individual families.
Mrs Higgins and I have been enjoying spending time in our gardens and going on walks recently. We have been especially interested in the different birds that we have seen and heard, so this weeks focus for our habitats topic is birds. 
If you enjoyed reading The Storm Whale, have a go at the quiz I have added too!
Everywhere bear has had a go at some home learning challenges this week. Have a look at what he has been up to for some ideas for your own work.
Stay safe everyone,
Miss Bradley
Oliver, Zach and George are big brothers!

Then open the challenge grid below.
Use the white rose links below to follow lessons for each year group. Each lesson includes a short video with some quick recap questions then some learning points. You can pause the video so your children can record answers from the quick recap questions, they then go through the answers so your child can self mark. Each lesson also has questions to complete. Don't worry if you don't have a printer, simply write your answers down. Use my weekly document (found at the top of this home learning page) as a guide to which lesson to be done on each day.
It is important to keep us practising your KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts) and improve your speed with some maths games.
For support with mathematical methods and resource ideas have a look at the knowledge organisers.
