School Work

During this period of school closure we endeavour to support parents with appropriate learning resources. Each year group has links and files for that age range. We also have added many links and documents in the lower part of the page.

Please do look out the e-reading advice. If there's one thing all the children should continue to do, it is keep sharing books and keep reading. Tameside library services offer many online resources to support this.

Soaring High!

Please join us in celebrating the wonderful achievements of our Ravensfield children, both at home and in school during this tricky time.

Here you will find a selection of home learning activities which you can share with your children.

Initial packs are being provided for nursery children in the event of school closures which contain everything you will need to continue happy and effective learning at home in these difficult times.

The stories selected are shared on you tube so if you don't have the books at home please have a look. There are also some lovely songs and rhymes available, particular favourites are 'Learning Station' and 'Simple Songs'. Both of these are available on you tube.

 

Hello to all our wonderful Year 6 children and parents, and welcome to your home learning page.

In these uncertain times it is important that we spend time with our families, doing activities together. For those who would like  learning to complete there is Maths, English and Topic learning below. Please do not feel you have to complete them all: you can pick and choose which activities you would like to do and how many of them you would like to complete.

Of course, If you would like to access online learning, please log on to Sumdog, Timetable Rock Stars or Dyslexia Gold. Of course, if you do not know your login, please drop us an email. 

Reading: please can we stress the importance of reading at this time as, not only does it provide escapism, it also keeps your brain ticking over and can be a fantastic communal activity. You can access lots of free Ebooks by signing up to Tameside Library.  

Please use the class emails to keep in touch with what you are getting up to and any questions you have.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have collected on our year group section, work suited for our children. We are aware that everyones situation is different. Some children are on their own with parents who are able to help with learning, some children are part of bigger families and are learning alongside brothers and sisters. Some parents are trying to work from home and have limited time to give to learning when they get busy.

The resources on this page will help your child. Please use them wisely, in keeping with what you can.We all want your child to stay interested in learning, remembering what they have learned at school. What they enjoyed finding out about and above all keeping proud of all they can do.

There is again a document added this week which highlights how the activities on the website are being implemented for the children who are still attending school. This may help you to see how we structure the day and how the activities meet aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. The half term activities are purely optional and are around the topic of 'Jungle Animals'.

Telephone Calls.

Mrs Moss tells me that she has caught  up with many of you and enjoyed finding out how you all are and what you have been up to.

Please continue to send email updates to the nursery email address : nursery @ravensfield,tameside.sch.uk.

Reading/Stories/Phonics

Please continue sharing stories, songs and rhymes with your children, this is so important for their continued development. I have added more stories to my you tube channel too. Mrs Kavanagh also features and hopefully Mrs Moss will be added soon.

Please click the links below or type 'Ms Morgan;s Stayhome Story Learning' into youtube.

Hello to all our wonderful children, parents and carers, we are missing you each day and hope you are all happy and well.

We would just like to say a big well done for all your hard work over the last half term. We have really enjoyed seeing all the pictures of the activities you have been doing. Over the half term holidays, we have put two sets of activities you may wish to have a go at. One is linked to Ancient Greece and the Olympic Games. The other is a fun active challenge; The Dr Ron Hill 7 Mile Challenge. Children from all Tameside schools are being asked to get involved. All you need to do to enter is run, walk, or skip 7 miles over the holidays – easy! Print off the map if you can or just keep track of your progress and once finished take a picture of your finished map and send it into Mr Pugh (classeleven@ravensfield.tameside.sch.uk) to enter for your chance to win some sports goodies. Also, for the chance to get your picture in the paper, send in pictures of you completing the challenge. Get going!

Please continue to use the online learning and apps such as TT Rockstars, Sumdog and Dyslexia Gold. We have been looking at these websites daily and it is fantastic to see the good progress you are making, keep up the good work.

Please do not feel you have to complete them all: You can pick and choose which activities you would like to do and how many of them you would like to complete but as a guide try to do one each of one or two. During this holiday period we have included more practical activities, so less onus is on the academic. Have some fun with these!

Do please please, please use the class emails to keep in touch with what you are getting up to and any questions you have. We know some of you are thriving and some are finding things more difficult. That goes for our parents as much as our pupils. Please email us if there are any issues, however trivial you feel they are. We'll try to help as best we can.

And don't forget. Send us pictures of all the great stuff you are doing for the gallery. It has been a real joy to see what you are getting up to!

Year 5

A smiling hello to our year 5 children and families, a very warm welcome to your Ravensfield home learning page.  In these uncertain times it is important that we keep our minds happy and healthy, having fun and spending time with our families, doing activities together.

As we begin our two week summer half term, the year 5 team have found some relaxed resources that you may wish to do. As it is half term no academic work is required, however, if you wish to do so there are plenty of links and resources that can be found across the Ravensfield website that will enrich the core curriculum. 

Below you will find resources to help pass time over this fortnight holiday such as creative crafts, science, outdoor activities and much more. Have a look and see what you fancy, this week there is no pressure to complete and hand in work. 

You will find your child's log in to specific websites (dyslexiagold/ TTRS/Sumdog) on the inside of their activity book that was given to them on the last day of school.To access Coding and research on the Espresso website, the username is - student7057 and the password is – ravens.    

Even over the half term PLEASE KEEP READING!  There are links on the school website to guide you to where you can borrow and download books for free to use in your home. 

This week Miss Novak has been in school working with some of class 10 who have been working hard on Geography, History, Spanish and RE lessons. Thank you to Nico and Lucas A for sending in pictures of their drawings and hard work. This week the top 5 children who have spent the most time on Sumdog are Jack, Ethan, Josh M, Nico and Reilly.
I hope you all enjoy a break over the next two weeks and have a go at some of the fun activities below.

This week Miss Himsworth has loved seeing the hard work Lilly has done in her Maths and Writing and Ellisa has definitely made her smile knowing Ellisa has completed her Harry Potter book and is on to the next one! She is reading the whole book series at home, which is so impressive! Well done to all of class 9 who are participating in online learning and using the apps TTRS and Sumdog! I SEE YOU!!! The top 5 this week are; Caitlin, Ellisa, Reece, Emily, Eve. 

We love having the pictures sent to us and this week have created class galleries so you can see what your friends have been up to and look proudly at your work! 

Email pictures and documents of answers, writing and creations back to classnine@ravensfield.tameside.sch.uk or classten@ravensfield.tameside.sch.uk as we love hearing from you, also do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. 

We hope you have a wonderful half term at home, please stay safe and be cautious.

We look forward to hearing from you after the half term- when phone calls home resume and the first theme back on the 8th of June will re-visit our space topic and some new famous people, we never got a chance to learn about in depth. 

Best wishes,

Miss Himsworth and Miss Novak.
