Mrs English and Mrs Taylor
We hope you and the children are now more familiar and confident navigating the Microsoft Teams lessons and assignments. Thank you so much to all of you who have started uploading photos and scanned documents onto the assignment itself on Teams - that makes the process of saving work, giving feedback and collating data a lot more straightforward and efficient.
Moving forward, we will continue to use Purple Mash to complement the learning activities. We will do this by setting weekly reading and spelling tasks as 2Dos on Purple Mash. The spellings will also be posted as an assignment on Teams so that the children can practise the spellings before attempting the Spelling Quiz on Purple Mash. A table with the term's spellings can be found below. In addition to the reading tasks on Purple Mash, you can use the Oxford Owl website to access a variety of books. You can also log into Accelerated Reader to access quizzes. Please scroll down for more information on how you can do that.
In case of any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via the class email:
Mrs English will be available Monday to Wednesday. Mrs Taylor will be available Monday to Friday.
Thank you again for your continued support,
Mrs English and Mrs Taylor
We will be posting the children's spellings on Teams every Thursday. The assignment will be set on Thursday and can be submitted by the next Wednesday. They will also be set as tasks on Purple Mash. If you require your child's log in details for Purple Mash please let us know. Please spend a few minutes checking the login works and you can access the site. www.purplemash.com/sch/silver
As you cannot borrow books from school at present, you could try something different - sign up for FREE to Oxford Owl reading, where you can choose from a range of books including Phonics, fiction and non-fiction books. Some you can even quiz on!
Just type the book title into the search AR bar and off you go!
