Irthington Village School - January 2020

Dear Parents,

Now that the school has unfortunately closed for the foreseeable future it will be really important to keep the core skills that the children have learnt and would have developed in place, ready for when they return. These are the 3 core skills that should be a focus:

  • Hearing your child read at least twice a week to encourage them to pick up a book is vitally important, or read to them yourselves, it is fantastic to see their faces as you read.
  • I also have attached the different year group’s spellings that they could learn each week, by look-cover-write-check and maybe even a test at the end of each week.
  • I have made available the times table challenge I created to test all tables knowledge up to 12X, firstly in order, then jumbled up. Your children could see how fast they can complete this, and hopefully get quicker each time. Have a go yourself!!

If you would like to share any work your child has achieved, please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will display it in in the home learning gallery on the schools website.

Step into th eNHSThe deadline for the Saying thank you to the NHS competition has been extended to the 19th June 2020.  This is your chance to get creative and recognise the work of NHS staff across the country. The brief is to produce: a piece of artwork or creative writing.  For more details and information on how to submit your entry please follow this link: Competition Page and Entry guidelines

Our topic work was due to be Groovy Greeks. This afforded a wealth of material to work with:

  • Geography: to use atlas skills to locate Greece on a map (google earth), look at the capital city, the flag, the neighbouring countries/ seas. (Recap knowledge of Europe)
  • History: the differences between Athens and Sparta, the battle of Marathon, ancient Olympics, Greek Gods, battle of Troy, Mount Olympus.
  • Art: design a greek vase, create a fact file on Greek gods, writing and designing a poster using the greek alphabet.
  • Design and Technology: create a Greek vase from papier mache, design a Greek mask from papier mache, look at Greek buildings and design a building with columns
  • Literacy: Greek Myths, plays and tragedies
  • PE: Joe Wicks provides a fantastic and fun way to exercise via a daily workout via the YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rz0go1pTda8
  • Science: properties and changes in materials. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zcvv4wx
  • Maths: a little trickier, but in the first instance the folder provided for home learning on the website will provide some maths activities. CGP maths, and grammar work books are a good idea, available at Amazon for less than £5.00 each
  • Spelling: see weekly lists in resources
  • Project: I have set a project to keep people mentally active too, please see the details below.
  • Coding: this link is a fun and quick introduction to computer coding - https://www.bt.com/codeacake/

Please find details of suggested activities, spelling lists and fun and useful packs of activities to do whilst the school is closed due the Corona virus.

If you are able to, keeping to a routine will help your child stay focussed, breaks and physical activity are essential too! As the school closure looks to be a lengthy one, please do try to do some reading, writing and maths every day. If you could keep the work your child does over this period of time, I would love to see it when we do come back to school.

  • I have included the planned spelling lists until May half term, why not keep to the routine of a spelling test on Friday morning and offer a reward?
  • Try to hear your child read every day, asking questions about the story, the characters, how they are feeling and why they have acted in a certain way. Ask your child how they know and see if they can show you evidence from the story.
  • Counting songs and nursey rhymes are a fun and interactive way to learn too.
  • Play dough is so easy to make and all the children love to play with it. (One cup of flour, half a cup of salt, 1 cup of water, 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar, 2 tablespoons of veg oil and a few drops of food colouring) mix together in a large microwaveable bowl and cook on high for 3 or 4 minutes. Once cool enough kneed for a few minutes. This dough will keep fresh in a tin or food bag for a couple of weeks.
  • Role play shops, hospitals, garden centres, schools, or act out the story you have read.
  • Make cards and letters for family members, cutting and sticking are essential fine motor control skills.

The context for learning in Class One over the summer term is Farm Life and Growing. Here are some ideas for you to do at home from my plans.

  1. Computing – making a digital card.

    Research suitable pictures on the internet. Copy and save. Using Microsoft office (or similar) find a card template. Copy the picture on the front page. Add a title. Inside write a short caption. Save your card and print.

  2. Geography – mapping skills.

    Can you make a map of your garden? Draw the garden and add keys if you can.

  3. PSHE – personal hygiene/being healthy/environmental education.

    Make a poster of how to brush your teeth, wash your hands and face, have a bath etc. Could you make a timetable of when you might do these things during the day?

    Being healthy we were going to make vegetable soup and fruit kebabs, perhaps some simple healthy recipes could be made together at home.

    Looking after our environment – think about recycling or making something new from boxes and cartons. Could you research what happens to plastic recycling and write about it?

  4. RE – St Kentigern’s Church and Buddhism.

    On a quiet day could you walk around the outside of the church and identify features of the church and the grounds. Could you draw one of the stained glass windows or the war memorial? Perhaps have a go at a grave rubbing with paper and wax crayons. Remember to be respectful.

    Buddhism, read a simple story about Buddha. Learn about prayer flags and the significance of the lotus flower (see downloaded packs)

  5. Art – the works of Beatrix Potter (painting, sketching and collage).

    Look at the beautiful pictures in the Beatrix Potter books, can you recreate some of these pictures. Can you paint some of your own in the style of Beatrix Potter?

  6. Science - Scientific Investigations – what makes a plant grow.

    Can you plant a bean in a plastic or see through food bag on some cotton wool and water and stick in a window? Watch how the bean grows. Make a weekly diary drawing the growing plant and describing what you can see.

    Try growing cress. Plant different types of seeds and bulbs and watch as they grow.

    Look online and find out all the different ways seeds are dispersed.

    Label the parts of a flowering plant (see download packs)

  7. History – Bitts park Queen Victoria and toys – then and now.

    If safe to do so visit the park and look carefully at the different sections, (could link with geography and map out a section). Find the statue of Queen Victoria. Who was she?

    Research Queen Victoria. Draw her.

    Investigate and compare toys that we have now and toys from the past (twinkl download packs)

  8. Music - singing and making instruments.

    Sing songs

    Make a rainmaker or shaker from junk modelling and rice.

  9. PE - check out Joe wicks on YouTube for daily PE lessons!
  10. There are some really useful teaching and learning packs on twinkl. Parents can use this free of charge for the next few weeks. I would recommend registering and then down loading the packs which will save to your computer for you to use at any time.

    How do I sign up for the free month?

    Step 1: Go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer

    Step 2: Enter the code you have received, or CVDTWINKLHELPS if you have not yet been given a code

    Step 3: Share the offer code and website link with anyone who could benefit

Things to do

  • I have included the planned spelling lists, why not keep to the routine of a spelling test on Friday morning and offer a reward?
  • Try to hear your child read every day, asking questions about the story, the characters, how they are feeling and why they have acted in a certain way. Ask your child how they know and see if they can show you evidence from the story.
  • Counting songs and nursey rhymes are a fun and interactive way to learn too.
  • Play dough is so easy to make and all the children love to play with it. (One cup of flour, half a cup of salt, 1 cup of water, 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar, 2 tablespoons of veg oil and a few drops of food colouring) mix together in a large microwaveable bowl and cook on high for 3 or 4 minutes. Once cool enough kneed for a few minutes. This dough will keep fresh in a tin or food bag for a couple of weeks.
  • Role play shops, hospitals, garden centres, schools, or act out the story you have read.
  • Make cards and letters for family members, cutting and sticking are essential fine motor control skills.

The context for learning in Class One over the summer term is Farm Life and Growing. Here are some ideas for you to do at home from my plans.

  1. Computing – making a digital card.

    Research suitable pictures on the internet. Copy and save. Using Microsoft office (or similar) find a card template. Copy the picture on the front page. Add a title. Inside write a short caption. Save your card and print.

  2. Geography – mapping skills.

    Can you make a map of your garden? Draw the garden and add keys if you can.

  3. PSHE – personal hygiene/being healthy/environmental education.

    Make a poster of how to brush your teeth, wash your hands and face, have a bath etc. Could you make a timetable of when you might do these things during the day?

    Being healthy we were going to make vegetable soup and fruit kebabs, perhaps some simple healthy recipes could be made together at home.

    Looking after our environment – think about recycling or making something new from boxes and cartons. Could you research what happens to plastic recycling and write about it?

  4. RE – St Kentigern’s Church and Buddhism.

    On a quiet day could you walk around the outside of the church and identify features of the church and the grounds. Could you draw one of the stained glass windows or the war memorial? Perhaps have a go at a grave rubbing with paper and wax crayons. Remember to be respectful.

    Buddhism, read a simple story about Buddha. Learn about prayer flags and the significance of the lotus flower (see downloaded packs)

  5. Art – the works of Beatrix Potter (painting, sketching and collage).

    Look at the beautiful pictures in the Beatrix Potter books, can you recreate some of these pictures. Can you paint some of your own in the style of Beatrix Potter?

  6. Science - Scientific Investigations – what makes a plant grow.

    Can you plant a bean in a plastic or see through food bag on some cotton wool and water and stick in a window? Watch how the bean grows. Make a weekly diary drawing the growing plant and describing what you can see.

    Try growing cress. Plant different types of seeds and bulbs and watch as they grow.

    Look online and find out all the different ways seeds are dispersed.

    Label the parts of a flowering plant (see download packs)

  7. History – Bitts park Queen Victoria and toys – then and now.

    If safe to do so visit the park and look carefully at the different sections, (could link with geography and map out a section). Find the statue of Queen Victoria. Who was she?

    Research Queen Victoria. Draw her.

    Investigate and compare toys that we have now and toys from the past (twinkl download packs)

  8. Music - singing and making instruments.

    Sing songs

    Make a rainmaker or shaker from junk modelling and rice.

  9. PE - check out Joe wicks on YouTube for daily PE lessons!
