Please remember to look under 'School Closures'  for weekly planning and useful links. Please remember that planning can be differentiated for your child. This can be done by making a task simpler or more challenging.

#StoryTime4HomeTime with James Mayhew No.1 - The Half Chicken

We hope you enjoy this story from James Mayhew, who will be sharing various stories over the next few weeks in his unique, artistic way. The first Story Time for Home Time features the Spanish folk tale, The Half Chicken....

Hello everyone, I just wanted to write a quick message on here as I didn't get to say goodbye today. It has been an absolute pleasure teaching your children so far this year, and I am sorry I couldn't be there for the last few days. We truly have had the best time with them and seeing their personalities grow, they really are a wonderful class! We will miss Maple class hugely and Miss Begum, Mrs Cox and myself are hugely appreciative of all of your support- hopefully it won't be too long until we see you all again! 

Sports Relief

3D Shapes I Know (solid shapes song- including sphere, cylinder, cube, cone, and pyramid)

3D Shapes I Know (new pyramid version) This version includes only ONE chorus at a time, whereas the old version used to do 2 at a time. I didn't like that the old one felt too long each time. I've also included a section about "a pyramid" now.

We are pleased to introduce our Strathmore Maths Ambassadors. In Rowan, Maple and Hazel we have Isabelle, Ayesha, Elissia, Zahra and Florence. In Oak and Willow we have Chloe, Alice, Grace, Beth and Rosie. The Ambassadors have been learning two games that they can play with other children, Strike it Out and Incey Wincey which you can find on the NRICH maths website. We will be playing these on the playground and in the school. The Maths Ambassadors all agree that Maths at Strathmore is GREAT FUN!

Zones of regulation

We use the zones of regulation to help manage our emotions. We are free to move our name to the appropriate colour when we are feeling excited, sad, tired, or cross. We understand it is normal to feel all these different emotions. By acknowledging them we can then find strategies to help us, which in turn will ensure we can move ourselves back to green. When we are on green we are ready to learn.
