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.

Time to Write

Each Friday morning we'd like children at home and at school to write. Each week will have a different theme. Our next session is the 10th July and the theme is favourite foods.

 

Once your writing is done, pop it in an email to Miss Leyland.

Summer Reading Challenge

We want all Ravensfield Children to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge. Libraries are now beginning to open so the timing is just perfect!

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.

This week there will be our last week of activities about the sea focusing on a Pirate theme.

There will also be a selection of activities on a Farm theme which you can look at over the holidays if you wish.

This will be the last update for this school year as school closes for summer on Thursday 23rd July.

 

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. 

Please look at the links below for 'The Summer Reading Challenge' which is a super way of continuing to develop your child's love of stories over the summer.

Year 1

Hello to all Year 1 Children and Parents

 Welcome to our homeschool page for the final time this term.

It has been a very different end to the school year and school itself closes on Thursday for the Summer holidays. We have all missed you being around over the last few weeks but so pleased and proud to see how hard you have been working at home.

There are a few new tasks this week,  to finish off work that you all started last week for Hansel & Gretel and on telling the  time.  There is some more information about Dukinfield too.

A great idea for the Summer holidays would be to record the places or buildings that you see in your own town.  You could draw them and investigate to see if you can find out more about them.  When were they built? Who were they for and what used to happen there?  What are these places used for now?  There is a lot going on around you, and where you live - see if you can get to know it a little better.

 Ravensfield would like to encourage you all to take part in this years reading challenge too.  This is something that we have done very well in the past. Please support your local library - the link is ion the main page.

I have added some activity books, if you do have access to a printer but please enjoy the holidays.  There are lots of fun ways to keep learning ready for the new term in September. See how many of the activity ideas you can do.

Are you ready to be Year 2?  I am sure that you will all have a great start to the new school year! Look forward to seeing you all back in school in September.

Stay safe, have fun and keep exploring.

  Year 1 Team.

Hello to all our wonderful Year 2 children

Sadly we have reached the last week of the summer term and you are about to become Juniors in Year 3.! We are extremely proud of how hard you worked in school and how you adapted to having to learn at home.  we have loved receiving all your emails and seeing how hard you have been working.

We can't wait to see you all around school in September.

We have left you some work to keep you going below during the summer, but do remember to ask your grown up to let you join in the summer reading challenge at the Library, it is always good fun - there is a link below to look at.

Have a lovely summer, keep safe and always listen to your grown ups!

Year 3

Hello, it is sadly our final week of the summer term this week and we have reached the end of your time in Year 3. We really enjoyed getting to know you and seeing all the amazing work you produced during your time at school. Unfortunately that came to an end very quickly and we were so pleased to see how well you all adapted to home learning. It has been a joy reading your emails and seeing the work you have completed at home. We are disappointed that we could not finish the year together but we look forward to seeing you around school in September.

You will find links to some summer activities on the web page which you can complete of you choose to. Also please register at the library for the Summer Reading Challenge, we look forward to awarding your certificates when we return in September. 

Stay safe and have a fantastic summer Year 3!

Year 4

Hello to all our wonderful Year 4 children and parents,

It's the last week of the year. Sadly it's not the end either you or we hoped for or expected. We have really enjoyed teaching you all this year, watching you get better at lots of different things (not just school work!) and getting to know you and seeing you grow as individuals. Although we have missed seeing you all in class, we have loved how you have all dealt with home learning and have enjoyed reading your emails and seeing all the interesting things you have been doing. We are sorry we couldn't say goodbye properly but all of us will look forward to seeing you all in September as you head past us on your way to Year 5! You have all been missed.

This week we're working on the art of Andrew Goldsworthy. The activities for this last week are listed below. Also below there are the details of the Summer Reading Challenge where you can take part as a member of the Silly Sqauad. You'll need to join the Tameside Libraries for this and we've included the details for that too. We look forward to awarding you lots of certificates in September for your work on this.

We've also included some summer Maths and English booklets and links to other activities should you feel the need to do them.As ever, If you would like to access more 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. 

All that remains to say to all of you is keep safe and have a superb summer Year 4. You've been fantastic!

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 to come to the end of term, the last home learning theme will be surrounding the famous artist Banksy. The tasks and resources below are for you to work through at your own pace, plus there is a selection of resources that will spread over the Summer holidays to keep you busy if you so wish.
Do not feel you have to complete all the tasks. We suggest at least 3 activities at day within term time. One could be a reading or a writing activity, another could be a maths activity and the third could be another subject.  

-   Literacy tasks – Writing activities, a reading comprehension, Spelling and Grammar practice.

-   Maths Tasks – Calculation activities, an arithmetic test and always practice times tables (maybe using Times Table Rock Stars/Sumdog)

-    Creative and foundation subject activities – Science, Geography, History, Art and crafts.   

If you want more activities and tasks to do, explore the links throughout the schools website for some extension learning.   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.    

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. It is so important that children carry on reading books, imagining stories and expanding their vocabulary.

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. 

Both Miss Novak and I are heart broken to not be finishing the year with you in person, however, we are so proud of your resilience, independence and determination to achieve and succeed throughout this period of home learning. Yr 5 has been a whirlwind, but as we look to the future, we are ecstatic to be seeing all your faces again in September around school. We wish you the best of luck as you move to your new teacher and class; just know how proud we are of you. 
Have a lovely summer holiday and come back refreshed and ready to work hard.

Stay safe,

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Miss Himsworth and Miss Novak.

Year 6

Hello to our lovely 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. We have been so impressed by the efforts you have made to keep working from home, and hope that you manage to keep it up over the next few weeks! To those who were meant to be returning to school last week, we are sorry that plans have had to change, but hope you still manage to enjoy your learning from home.

In addition to the website work, Sumdog, Times Table Rockstars and Dyslexia Gold are great websites to keep your learning progressing.

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.

Well done to all of you for working hard and staying positive!

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
