Week Beginning Monday 11th January 2021

We have come to end of our first full week of  home learning. 

For our Literacy we have carried on writing about the Great Fire of London inline with our Topic work. We have learnt some of the key facts and used them to describe the fire. We have also been using this to help us with our spellings - looking this week at the special friends o-e. Our maths learning has been based around partitioning and using our number
skills to add. I have been really impressed with the many ways we came up with to partition the number 10. 
As well as carrying on with our History work on the Great Fire of London, we have also done some amazing Art and DT work this week. A highlight was the Kadinsky inspired flame pictures. 

Have a great weekend!

Week Beginning Monday 4th January 2021

Firstly, I would like to say a massive Happy New Year!

Well, it was certainly a strange week for everyone. It was lovely to see the children back on the Monday, only to have a new Lockdown brought in that evening, meaning schools will now be closed and children will be working from home. 

A literacy, Maths and Topic lesson will be set on Seesaw each day. Where possible it will be based around our topic for this half term - the Great Fire of London. 

For maths, we will be following the White Rose scheme - videos will accompany the activity so the children can watch these before having a a go at it for themselves. Mathletics logins are now on the Seesaw page should you child want to have a go at it.  

Please can I ask that at least one piece of Literacy, Maths and Topic is sent to me each week. This can be done by taking a picture of their work and sending it to me via private message on Seesaw - just reply to the message I have sent you. 

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch 

Have fun and stay safe. 

Thank you 

Mr Clatworthy 



Week Beginning Monday 14th December 

Our final week before the Christmas holidays!  

We started the week by writing our Christmas letters to Santa - telling him what we wanted to find under the tree on Christmas day. On Tuesday, we came into school to learn that our class Elf had disappeared! We then created a missing poster to hopefully try and find him. It worked! On Wednesday he returned and returned with chocolate to say sorry! The rest of the week was full of festive fun, from our Christmas party to creating a Christingle!

I really wish you all the best Christmas holiday! Stay safe, have fun and I'll see you all again in January!

Week Beginning Monday 7th December 2020

Our class Elf has continued to be creative with the various things he has been doing around the classroom. For our Literacy this week we have been writing all about the Elf: describing him, what he has been up to and thinking of our own ideas of what he could do next. In maths we have carried on with our learning of numbers up to 20; understanding tens and ones and using the terms 'greater than' and 'less than'. 

As part pf our topic and afternoon learning, we have been looking at the season of winter. We made our own winter-themed pictures and learnt all about the different seasonal changes that will happen. 

I think we are all looking forward to going into our final week before Christmas now. 

See you next week. 



Week Beginning Monday 30th November

It's been another busy week in Seaton class. 

We were all surprised when our Literacy started off this week with a letter from Santa. He explained that he has lost one of his reindeer and needed our help to catch him. We have spent the week writing about the different ways we could help Santa catch the reindeer. We also wrote a missing poster with a description of the reindeer as well as where it was last seen. Our maths learning this week has been around shapes - learning about the different 2-D and 3-D shapes. 

This week we also had a campfire as a class reward for getting all of the marbles in the jar. Mrs Ince showed us how to safely make a fire and we then enjoyed making and eating smores. 

We have also been visited by a friendly elf who has been living in our classroom and the children have loved seeing what he has been getting up to each day. 

Looking forward to seeing you all again next week.

Week beginning Monday 23rd November 2020

We are on the countdown to Christmas now. Our Literacy work took a unexpected turn this week when we received a latter from Santa himself! He explained that we will be receiving a parcel soon that contains something that will help him to see who is being good this year. He also said that he has lost one of his reindeer and he needed our help to try and catch it. We wrote about all our ideas of how we could do it, these ranged from lassoing it, catching it in a net, or using a carrot trap. 

For our maths learning this week, we have started looking at subtraction. We used a number line to help us with our 'jumps' backwards. We will be moving on to look at shapes next week. 

Our Topic learning this week has been focused on RE and how we need to look after ourselves and our planet. We made some recycling pictures and Earth pictures showing how we can help the planet become more environmentally friendly. 

Have a great weekend and see you next week. 



Week Beginning Monday 16th November 

It has been another busy week in Seaton class!

In our literacy, we have been getting into the Christmas spirit reading the book 'How to Catch Santa'. We have invented loads of new ways we could catch Santa as he comes around on Christmas eve. We have also taken on the role of a TV presenter, interviewing a local expert in 'catching Santa'. In maths we have carried on with our work on addition and will begin learning about subtraction next week. 

In topic this week, we have been learning about Christianity and the story of “The Good Samaritan”. We discussed that Christians have a holy book called a Bible. It has lots of stories and teachings, which help Christians lead their lives. We looked at one story called “The Good Samaritan” and what it means to be a good Samaritan. We said that it means being helpful, kind, caring, supportive and friendly. As a class, we have made a “helpful hands” wreath with handprint pictures of all of the class’ hands! Others drew a picture of the good Samaritan from our story and how he was helpful to the man who was dying. We know how to be a good Samaritan now

See you all next week.

Week Beginning 9th November  

We are at the end of what has been another busy week. In our literacy, we have now finished our work on How to Wash a Wooly Mammoth. We have learnt the book and have been writing our own instructions on how we could wash our own animal. Washing certain animals would certainly prove to be rather tricky! We have also continued to make great progress with our maths learning. This week has been spent learning how to partition different numbers up to 10. We have also learnt how we can make them using different number facts. 

On Monday we looked at Bonfire night and drew firework pictures using different coloured chalks. Our Topic learning has been a little different this week with Remembrance day being on Wednesday. The two minute silence was observed respectfully by everyone. We learnt about the significance of it and painted poppies to remember those who had died. Today has been our annual Children in Need fundraiser and the children enjoyed watching the Lego movie and eating popcorn.  

Im looking forward to what next week brings!
