Welcome to Oak's web page Updated Friday 20th March
Due to the closure of schools and the new need for home learning, a wide range of work is being added to the 'work for self-isolating' families page. A Google classrooms for Ashford Hill is currently being developed, but while we familiarise ourselves with it, and add work to it for the children, we ask you to check the aforementioned page for work that can be completed at home.
Home > Children > Class Pages > work for self isolating families > Oak
It currently has poetry work for English, addition, subtraction and multiplication work for Maths, as well as work for guided reading, comprehension, computing, science and access to times table rockstars - a new free online game platform that is safe to use. Please email me for your child's logon and password: firstname.lastname@example.org
We want the schools to be open and the children here with us as much as you do. These are difficult times for us all, and the staff at Ashford Hill will do what we can to help you access the work and assist you in the education of your children. I hope you all a safe and a stress free time as possible, and hope to see you all in better times sooner rather than later.
Suggested timetable for learning while at home
We have created a timetable to split the day into useful activities and routines which may help with the close confines you may find yourselves in. This timetable is just a suggestion, your day does not have to be organised in this order and can be altered to fit in with your temporary home life situation.
The most important thing to take from this, is that routine and structure will help maintain your child’s/ren’s engagement and behaviour. Allowing for a reduced stressed environment for the entire family during this difficult time.
Just a few helpful notes:
P.E - Monday afternoons (Real PE) and Wednesday afternoons (sports coach), please remember kits and hairbands.
Homework - Please get thinking of a new project for the end of this term.
New topic: History - Ancient Egyptians. Geography - countries of world including North Africa and the Nile. DT - some cookery, Computing - internet safety, office tools, collecting and presenting data. Science - rocks, fossilisation and States of matter. Art/DT - clay structures (inspired by the architecture of ancient Egypt). PE - gymnastics. RE - Hinduism / Holi.

Times tables- Each child will complete a verbal test on a specific given day, please check the front of their multiplication cards.

Reading - At least five times a week and reading is always king, if you have not got enough time for homework please put reading as a priority. Enjoy listening, reading to and most importantly taking about what you like in the story with your child, a good conversation really helps them to understand what they have read.
Topic - A new topic and homework letter has been sent home (Friday 17th January) which reflects the homework section above. Topic letter to be uploaded soon.
Spelling - Oak Class have had a series of assessments for maths (arithmetic and reasoning), SPaG (two punctuation and grammar papers and one spelling test) with a further spelling test to go.
