Keep in Touch

Hi its Mrs Hastewell here, all children have been given a printed booklet and below is a weekly timetable.  Together this will give you enough work for two weeks. Please mark your child's work and try to guide them with their corrections.

 

Please feel free to send in any photographs of any additional activities your child has been doing I would love to see what they have been getting up to. Maybe they have made a Lego model, baked a cake, completed a jigsaw, created a den in the garden or painted a rainbow to display in their window. With your permission I will look forward to sharing these with the rest of the children in the class on our Star page.

 

My email is ghastewell@olsa.lancs.sch.uk

Week 2

 

Hi all thanks for continuing to send your work and photographs to me at ghastewell@olsa.lancs.sch.uk.

 

Here are the pictures from Week 2.

 

Have a look and see what your friends have been busy doing.

Week 1

 

Hi Star Class have a look at what your friends have been getting up to this week. Nice to see other family members joining in too. Can you guess which one of you is in camouflage?

 

I really have enjoyed receiving your emails. Keep smiling and having fun

_________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Parents there has been an issue with some of the websites I added. I have decided to change things slightly as everyone in the country is accessing the internet and sites keep crashing. I will attach the Maths No Problem page links for each day. Please see additional resources. You may wish to print the sheets. The text is rather large and spread out so maybe print 2 sheets on one side and two on the back to save paper. Or use the exercise book to write the answers, which ever is preferable. I have left the other resources on too in case you wanted to have a look.

 

Thank you Mrs Hastewell

A great maths resource called White Rose Maths if you were looking for something extra. It contains clips to watch too. This week is all about 'Fractions' it will back up what we have been doing at school.

Additional Resources

Welcome to Star Class (Year 2)

 

My name is Mrs Hastewell and I am the class teacher Monday to Thursday. On a Friday Mrs Rainey teaches the class. Mrs King is the teaching assistant in Star Class. We are also very lucky to have three volunteers whose names are Mrs Tomlinson, Mrs Smith and Mrs Bailey who help on alternate days.

 

We are a class of 19 and we strive in everything we do. We always try our best, even when things get difficult!

 

We read lots of books that explore many topics throughout the year. Our current texts are non-chronological reports.

 

Jesus is at the heart of everything we do. We have daily worships in class and have many opportunities to visit Church throughout the school year. Father also visits us in school.

We have a busy curriculum and ensure that the children receive an exciting and fulfilling time here at OLSA.
