Reminder - P.E kits to be brought in on Monday and to go home the Friday.

Dont forget its Healthy week the Following week so you will need your P.E kit every day.

Homework 

Hopefully by now everyone has managed to get get logged on.

Just in case you are struggling to find your log in details, these have been given to Mr Armstrong's class for the second time to take home  as well as sent via email on or around the 20th February to both email addresses held on our system.

A text message was sent out to all 1st and 2nd contact mobile numbers held on the school system on the 3rd of March, with a second message (again to the same numbers stored as contacts) with the verification code that pupils will need to access the homework side of the site.

Where to find the section needed to log in:

To the top left of the school website there is a tab which says “Pupil Login”. Click on this and follow the instructions, paying careful attention to any capital letters and numbers. Input the verification code when prompted. Finally, click view homework.

Currently, the homework set will be “Reading on Your Head” and “Maths with Parents” - Maths with parents wasn't working last week but should be fine now le

Once home learning has been completed, pupils should comment in their pupil area that they have completed the homework set.

If you or your child experiences any issues, please let us know but failing any technical issues on the side of the websites the children should be able to do this independently.

Please could we remind the year 6 children that P.E. kits should be brought in on the Monday so they can be used on the Wednesday, and weather permitting also on the Friday.

Start of the summer term

The last term is here! This year has gone so quick, yet so slow.

Let's make this term really count to get “secondary ready”. 

We have a great new Novel to look at - to be announced after the launch (no spoilers here), Science, Spanish, Music, Art as well as a new Topic which, weather dependent, should take us outside more!

Covid safety measures will look the same as when you returned after lock down (8th March 2021):

Protective Measures: Both Mrs Dugdale and Mr Armstrong will be tested twice a week with the Lateral Flow tests and will wear masks whenever social distancing can not be adhered to.

Exit and entry: The protective measures of staggered entry and exits along with face coverings for adults entering site will be maintained.  Year 6 will arrive in school at 8:30am to start our learning promptly at 8:40am in the classroom, and finishing at 2:50pm. Year group bubbles will continue throughout school.

Email Communication: Email communication with year group staff will only be responded to outside of teaching time – therefore please use office@richmond.doncaster.sch.uk for any urgent communication or telephone the main school office.

Absence: The re-opening guidance states school attendance will be mandatory for all pupils from the 8th of March; therefore, the usual rules on school attendance will apply. A reminder that any absences should be reported to absence@richmond.doncaster.sch.uk.

We feel this is important to work on elements the children have missed through lockdown and remote education such as team games, peer communication and health and wellbeing. From the 8th all children are to bring their PE kits every Monday to be then taken home each Friday.

VLE: Live Zoom Lesson will not continue once we have returned to class based teaching. However, all lesson taught in class will be added to the VLE for access at home for any cases of self-isolating pupils with teacher contact weekly for those pupils. Submission of work for marking and feedback will be via your child’s school spider individual account. You will have been sent this log in via school communications. A "Remote Education Live-Learning Agreement" has been sent out for signature. Click for link here

 Any problems please let us know.

Lunches: Hot meals will return for all pupils when we re-open on the 8th of March, please ensure the office have been informed to ensure meal booking.

Snack: A healthy snack can be brought from home for break times in Key Stage 2 as toast will not be available due to staff capacity.

Please could you start to collect together all your 8 weeks of work in a named carrier bag so that, after quarantining it, we can add it to your child’s moderation file.

If you have already sent in a digital copies in, do not worry we have stored all of these, but please feel free to send in anything that you have at home.

We look forward to welcoming you all back on Monday!

Well that's it! Our last live teaching lesson via Zoom. What a journey it has been! We have learned so much and continue to be impressed by our Year 6 pupils and their commitment to their learning.

Now that we are well into our live learning sessions, we would like to leave a gentle reminder of our Zoom etiquette so that we can "get cracking" straight away and reduce screen time.

RHPA Year 6 Live content - Guidance for whole class live Zoom sessions for year 6:

  • Children should be prepared and ready for their learning:
    - Something to write with
    - Something to write on
    - The previous lessons work available to show/discuss
  • Children should be fully dressed (but no need for school uniform)
  • Children should not be eating during live sessions or have phones at hand
  • Children should be on mute, unless asked to unmute
  • Cameras should be on (unless we have spoken to you/your child about this previously)
  • No virtual backgrounds please
  • The children’s names should be the screen name so that we know who we are admitting into the meeting (On Zoom go to ‘participants’ then ‘more’ then ‘rename’)
  • The chat function is for questions or comments to the teachers only
  • Sessions should not be recorded by parents on any device or shared, but may be recorded by school for safeguarding reasons

Another great week under our belt – well done Year Six!

The internet didn’t "freeze" too badly despite the snow (see what I did there?) and we carried on with our great learning.

The first chapter of our novel has been read and questions answered: now for Chapter 2!

Pictures and ideas are coming in thick and fast for your WW2 projects – keep them coming. If you are looking for inspiration, check out our new gallery at the bottom of the page (remember to click on “all galleries” to see the full range).

WOW! What an amazing Year 6 cohort we have!

We have been blown away by the Year 6 attitude to their online learning so far.

The Year 6 team are incredibly proud of the way our pupils have adapted to the remote live teaching element that we are now offering during lockdown. The pupils have been conducting themselves superbly, both online and in school as part of the Critical Worker bubble.

Everyone is really pulling together during this unusual time to make this new style of teaching and learning successful. We really appreciate the positive and constructive feedback we have received so far. As a result, we have been able to adapt our lessons to make them as impactful as possible. This is new to all of us!

We look forward to seeing all of the fantastic learning that the children will complete. We are excited to share this work with everyone here on our class page.

 

Week one coverage

Reading comprehension – Earthquakes –

Maths – Equivalent and simplifying Fractions with Bingo!

Maths Meeting  - Reviewing Multiplication, dividing by 10/100/100, times tables, 4 operations

R.E – A cracking start looking at Buddhism.

Our Lockdown timetable for online learning:

Session One – 9:30 AM (English)

Session Two – 11:00 AM (Maths)

Feedback to be given by pupils at the start of each lesson from the previous session.
