If your KS2 child is feeling anxious about the current situation, it may help them to watch this video, from an education and neuroscience consultant, about understanding why we become anxious, and becoming a Neuro-Ninja.
Hello parents/carers and children :-) Welcome to our Emerald class page. Feel free to contact me anytime on our new Emerald class email address which is written at the very bottom of this page. I will be answering your emails during all normal term-time hours.
To ensure everyone gets access, I will be sending out work for this week bit by bit via email AND posting the downloads on the Emerald class page as I get chance to create the activities. The work sent via email and posted on the website is exactly the same, so choose for yourself which way is more convenient for you to access it. Thank you so much for adapting so well to this new way of learning! I will be sending 5 sessions of Maths and 5 sessions of English per week. The Maths tasks go from toe in the water to diving for pearls. The diving for pearls questions are more challenging- please choose a level that suits your child. This week is a little different in English as we are doing an extended writing task — play scripts. We did lots of punctuation and grammar last week, so extended writing is a chance for children to be creative and put the skills they focussed on last week into practice. I will also be sending 5 open ended activities relating to other subjects across the curriculum.
Please feel free to complete the activities whenever is convenient for your family throughout the week.
I must also emphasise that there is no obligation to complete all the work set and feel free to be creative with your own ideas in your home environments — pinterest is great for ideas!
Thank you so much to everyone who is sending in pictures of their creations — they all look amazing!
