Happy Wednesday Jays!

 

This week we were going to be learning about money. I decided to make a shop at home and pay for my snacks. 

First I wrote a shopping list. 

Then I added some price tags. 

After I found the correct amount of coins to pay for my snack. 

Then I decided to try and make the amounts in different ways. For example instead of using a 10p coin for my crisps I used two 5p pieces.

 

I wonder if you could have a go at doing this at home? You don't have to use snacks, maybe you would prefer to have a toy shop instead. 

Remember to keep sending me your pictures to Jays@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk

 

Happy Shopping!

Hello Jays! 

I Hope you are all having a lovely week so far. I would love to share some amazing work with you. Jan has been working very hard at home. He has been writing tricky words, practicing the phonics sound 'zz', making Easter Eggs, ordering numbers, reading and lots more! 

Fantastic home learning Jan, Well Done!

Hey Jays!

It's Friday-Hooray! Hope you are all happy and well, still enjoying the sunshine and looking forward to the weekend! 

 

This week in maths we are going to be learning about capacity this means; the amount something can hold.

These are some of the words we can use when exploring capacity:

nearly full, full, half full, nearly empty, empty.

 

Today I made some banana bread. I had to measure my ingredients into cups. Some steps needed full cups, some needed half cups. I wonder if you could have a go at making something with your families at home? I would love to see some pictures and hear about what you have done. I followed a recipe by Allrecipes.com called ' How to make Banana Bread'. I baked my bananas first to soften them (they go black!) and added some raisins and honey too! Above are some pictures of my attempt (I'm sure you will do a much better job than me!) 

Happy Baking!

26/03/2020 Hello Jays! Yesterday I played a game of cards with my family. Whilst playing I wondered if I could use the cards to help me with some addition. I decided to make up a game. All i needed was some playing cards, a pen and paper and some counters (you could use anything as counters e.g. beads, buttons etc.) Have a look at the slideshow to see what i did! I would love you to email me some of your number sentences to our class email jays@archbishopcourtenay.kent.sch.uk. Have fun!

Morning Jays, Happy Thursday! Mr Webster wanted to share an idea with you and say hello! 

 

Good morning Jays, I hope you are all well and safe. The sun is shining once again. We know exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier and more energised, which is why this week I have been joining in with 'The Body Coach Joe Wicks on Youtube. It starts at 9am for a fun 30 minute workout, even your adults can get involved. Its load of fun and will get your brain ready for the rest of the day. I would love to hear, see pictures or videos on Tapestry of you having a great time working out with Joe Wicks.

 

Have a great day Jays and keep safe!

Mr Webster

Good Afternoon Jays, I thought you might like to share this prayer with your families. Maybe you could talk about any worries or concerns you have at this present time and give thanks for each other. 

 

The doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked. (John 20.19)

 

Ever present God,

be with us in our isolation,

be close to us in our distancing,

be healing in our sickness,

be joy in our sadness,

be light in our darkness,

be wisdom in our confusion,

be all that is familiar when all is unfamiliar,

that when the doors reopen

we may with the zeal of Pentecost

inhabit our communities

and speak of your goodness

to an emerging world.

For Jesus’ sake.

Amen.

24/03/2020 Hello Jays! Hope you are all keeping safe and well. As I'm sure you can see it is a beautiful Spring day today so I decided to go outside and have a look at the wonderful pieces of nature. I took some photos and wondered if you could share some of your photos with me? I look forward to seeing them.

Hello Jays and welcome to our Class blog!

As of yet we do not know how long we will be off school for, that's why we have made you a pack of work and given you ideas of some great websites. We really want you to continue with all the great progress you have made so far this year so please do all you can to continue your learning at home

 

You will have seen today that we are adding lots of lovely things to Tapestry, this will happen daily and will consist of a daily phonics lesson and a fun maths/Literacy/PE/Music activity. Also please login to Tapestry at 3.15 each day for story time with either myself or Mrs Eades, if you want to read us a story that would also be lovely. 

 

Remember to keep safe and keep smiling!
