Bamburgh Castle Class
Bamburgh Class - Home Learning - Wednesday 1st December 2021 (School Closure)
I know you are working hard at home and being superstars at home. Here are a few challenges for today!
Your challenge is to read the short text about a Christmas Tree. See link below:
Year 2 - You need to write about how to decorate a Christmas Tree - you might like to use the template below or just write on a piece of paper.
Year 1 - You need to complete the sentences about how you would decorate your Christmas tree.
Next challenge is to draw what your Christmas Tree looks or what you hope your tree will look like.
There is a little bit of Christmas colouring maths by number but remember you can practise your maths skills on Numbots & Time tables Rockstars too!
I have also added a powerpoint about the history of Christmas Trees and how Prince Albert introduced them to this country. Year 2 read the reading comprehension and answer the questions.
Year 1 & 2 you might like to see how many words you can find on the Christmas Tree word search.
- Year 1 Fill in the missing words on The Snowmen came
- Year 2 Christmas Tree Reading Comprehension Questions.
- Christmas Tree Word Search.
- Year 2 The History of Christmas Trees - Reading Comprehension.
- Year 2 Christmas Maths Colouring.

There are new learning packs to go alongside this timetable, there is a one for Year 1 and one for Year 2. These are available for collection at the school entrance in the foyer.
There are a range of activities, children may record their work in their book or on paper. All the resources to support this timetable are also on Google classroom. I will launch the Google classroom resources tomorrow (Friday at 5.00pm). This is different from last week as I am aware that some parents are home schooling on weekends. The activities for the whole week will appear on Google classroom, this is to allow parents an opportunity to look at tasks in advance. This does not mean your child has to complete all tasks on one day!
Everyone child has been sent their own login for the School Library Service so they are able to access a range or eBooks.
Thank you for your support and sharing the wonderful home learning you are doing.
Letter 15th January
I hope you are all keeping well and have managed to access the home learning on Google classroom and are enjoying our Paddington and other topics.
There has been a lot of positive feedback regarding the extra support timetable. Many parents have found it a useful tool to help them develop a routine and provide support for their child on a daily basis. You may find that some days are better than others for home learning, so please feel free to adapt, choose and work through activities and tasks at a space that suits your family’s needs.
I wish to support you as much as possible, so I will be asking for feedback on what is most useful and beneficial for you over the upcoming weeks. I am striving to provide a range of activities, resources and lessons so make it easier for parents to choose activities and tasks that meet the needs of parents and children.
If you require any additional resources, reading books or printed copies of worksheets for next week, please do not hesitate to contact me so this can be arranged. Each class has a box/tray in the main foyer where resources can be left for collection at your convenience.
Miss Gleghorn has been in contact with the School Library Service (SLS) who are offering a free eBook platform with a login for every child to access a wide range of books. I will provide the login details for your child via Google classroom to enable you to access this service.
The priority during this time, once again, is that your child is happy and healthy so please feel encouraged to take this opportunity to allow your child to follow their interests, whatever these may be. Whilst the suggested timetable gives guidance on which subjects to complete in the afternoons, this is not prescriptive.
It has been wonderful to see lovely photographs and pictures of the children’s fabulous home learning. I would like to share home learning achievements in the next few weeks on Bamburgh class home learning page. If you have some home learning you would like to share, please could you send this to me or the office.
Once, again thank you for all your support.
