The Embark Award.

We have relaunched this post from October, as the Embark Award is a unique, special award for our academy of schools and whilst we are at home, we could still be working towards achieving the goals.  There are activities and experiences that we can't or must not do at the moment, but there are many that we can -  We think that many of us could do number 25 on 'Family' after last weekend's snow!  Please contact your class teacher children with a photograph/video of you achieving your goals and we will be able to award the stickers into your folders for when you return into school.

Good luck!

 

The Embark Award is part of the Trust’s wider offer to our children here at Richardson Endowed. 

Your child has been given a folder in school with 100 activities in to enable them to access a number of experiences before they leave us at age 11. 

The Embark Award is designed such that the children can carry out the activities at home or in school . They are linked to our core beliefs of Family, Integrity, Teamwork and Success! 
If you feel your child has achieved one of the activities please send evidence, such as a photograph, to Google Classroom where they will be given the appropriate sticker to mark off their achievement in their luxury folder. 

We hope that in the future folders will be able to come back and forth between home and school but at this time it is not possible. Therefore, please refer to all the information below, which is from the folder in school.

The EMBARK Award (Please click on this link here to access the full details of the award.)

The children are so excited about this new project so please encourage and enjoy some new experiences together.

Happy Half Term Class 3!

Well…we did it! Together we made it to half term and I couldn’t be prouder!

6 weeks ago, we sat together in the classroom and I asked you all to think of a word; a word in which you wanted to be; a word in which you were to become by the end of the year. The words you gave me amazed me; made me stop and think.

‘I want to be confident’, ‘I want to be unstoppable’, ‘I want to be courageous’ and ‘I want to be kind’.

As a teacher, I saw the determination and dedication in your eyes and knew you meant it, that you were going to give everything you could to become that word. Then the announcement came. Many of you asleep in bed, not knowing what tomorrow was going to bring…

We all awoke; fed up, frightened, unsure and saddened by yet another lockdown BUT, did you let that stop your determination and dedication to becoming your word… NO YOU DID NOT! You gave 100% towards everything, you never gave up and you did it all with a smile; a smile that got you, your parents, grandparents and me through each day. You did it in style Class 3 along with excellent work, superb attitudes, lots of laughs and sometimes tears but most importantly you did it together! As a class, you supported each other, congratulating and applauding one another and sharing this time together, something which has made the whole experience much easier, brighter and happier. You all have achieved so many things you never thought possible. You have written your own fairy tales, fables and stories; you have learnt about multiplication, division and statistics; you have walked like an Egyptian; you have made your own moving book all about Egypt; you have become scientists and experimented light; you have continued to learn another language; you have become your chosen word. In a time where things should have been difficult and near impossible, you have become unstoppable, courageous, confident, kind and so much more. As a class, you have defied expectation and shown just how special and wonderful you all are – thank you!

Well done to our Smalley Richardson Community!

We just wanted to send our thanks to all those parents who have embraced home learning over the past 8 days! Yes we know this is only day 8 and it probably feels like a month! 


We understand that you are coping with so many different pressures at the moment. Even ensuring you have food in your cupboards is a task. Many of you are working from home, trying to do your own jobs and teach your children, often with no support from your wider families due to current restrictions. 


The Government have instructed all schools to make sure online learning provision is much more rigid and challenging which we at Smalley have done, but we also know that this puts extra pressure on you! Please know that we understand that you are doing your best! Your efforts will be rewarded by the progress your children make and you are doing a good job! 


Below is a song recorded by children in America to thank all the adults who are keeping people safe and well such as our NHS workers, teachers who educate, and parents who are doing a ‘good job’ in keeping their children safe and trying their very best to facilitate home learning.

Remember, there’s no job more important than being a parent! You are doing something quite extraordinary and we want to tell you so! 


Thank you for all your efforts with home learning-they truly are appreciated by all of us at Richardson Endowed. Enjoy the song below:

 

 

Take care and stay safe!

Mrs Mason

Good Afternoon Children!

Dear Children,

I am sending this message to say how sorry we are that our school has once again been forced to close to so many of you! As the Prime Minister, Mr Boris Johnson, only spoke to the whole country at 8pm last night it didn't even give your teachers chance to explain to you how you are going to be learning for the next few weeks!

I am therefore writing this to say that from tomorrow your teachers will be contacting you each day on Google Classroom Meet. Later this afternoon I will send an email to your parents to let them know what time your live check-in is. We know that some of you will have brothers or sisters who will need to check in at the same time and we will try to avoid as many clashes where possible. Please do not worry if this happens; you may have to take it in turns! You will still be able to access all the work via Google Classrooms and contact your teachers during the school day.

Please try your best to work hard at home just like you do at school ! I hope to see you all soon !

Stay safe

Mrs Mason.

The Richardson Endowed Christmas Special

Title

Christmas performances are a big part of any school year. Although we have not been able to invite you in to see our regular shows, each class has prepared their very own Christmas message. We hope our digital performances add a little festive cheer to your day.

Class 3's Star of the Week!

Our star this week and the last star of 2020 is...Sammy! 

Well done Sammy, you have worked so incredibly hard since you walked through the door in September. You never give up, you try your hardest in everything, you give 100% towards everything and anything asked of you and you are so polite, well-mannered and an absolute pleasure to have in the classroom. Your smile radiates through the classroom and you truly are a superstar through and through. Keep up the great work Sammy :)

The Last Two Weeks in Class 3...

The last two weeks have been fun-filled, a little crazy but extremely exciting as we have worked towards breaking up for Christmas so I decided to do them together as one post. 

Last week...

The children worked extremely hard on our Class Christmas Performance and instructional writing. We hope you all enjoyed the class performance, the children did such a fabulous job and ensured they all individually had their moment but also showed the true, brilliant-ness of them as a whole class. They learnt a script, produced some gorgeous paintings, drawings, models, did dances, prepared jokes and just fully immersed themselves into producing the best performance for you, which without sounding bias I think they did, 100 times over! Well done Class 3, it really was a Christmas performance to remember! 

We also worked incredibly hard on instruction writing, writing instructions of how to catch a woolly mammoth using their knowledge from our topic the Stone Age and their own imaginations. We focused on features of instructions and the children then peer assessed each others instructions by giving two stars and a wish to each other and sharing their successes. As well as this, the children showed their fantastic Stone Age knowledge in our last topic and science lesson, blowing me away with the information they had taken in and embedded into their brain. Great job Class 3! 

This week, the last week of 2020 for Class 3...

What a buzz there has been across the class this week, with so many exciting activities and fun-filled opportunities for the children to dive right in to! The children walked 90 miles in 3 days, every child participating in a mile walk each day to add to our class Race to Rudolph. They have made some beautiful Christmas cards, all independently! We've had party lunches, glow in the dark dodgeball, an online Pantomime, a visit from the ice cream van, lots of treats and a genuinely, lovely festive time together! Although there were lots of changes and different routines, the children have coped so well with these and have loved every minute, now ready to have a wonderful Christmas with their family. 

Thank you for a brilliant first term Class 3, have the most wonderful Christmas time and a happy new year. Take care, stay safe and rest up ready for even more fun in Class 3 when you all return in January. IMG_5436
