Welcome_Back_in_Flashing_Colors

Good morning children! We can’t wait to see you this morning ready to start a new year at Smalley Richardson! Your teachers have been working so hard to get your classrooms ready for learning again! You will have lots of new rules to follow to help keep everyone safe but we know you can do it! 


See you very soon,

from Mrs Mason and everyone at school 

Class 5 - Home Learning - Friday 17th July

Good Morning Class 5,

Today is your last day of 'school'. It was wonderful to see so many of you join in with the class video meeting this week.Although our time together in the classroom has been much shorter than any of us had hoped, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you. Even in the short time you were part of my class it was wonderful to watch you grow in your learning. I saw children who felt they would always struggle with handwriting develop improving styles of their own. I witnessed those who struggled to start the first sentence of a story craft incredible and imaginative pieces. I saw children applying their understanding of maths in problems that, to begin with, seemed impossible. Most of all, I saw a class with a love of learning, we had fun no matter the work we were undertaking.

I am proud of each and everyone of you. Whether you feel it yet or not, are ready for year 6.

All the best and I look forward to seeing you in the new school year,

Mr Redmond

Good Morning Class 5,

Today I would like you to think all about you. What makes you..... you? Think not just about the things you like or the hobbies you have but about your personality. Are you a kind person, perhaps you are really good at sharing. Maybe you are someone who is passionate about their interests or are you someone who is always cool, calm and collected.

When you have given this a good think (you could record ideas on paper), your challenge is to create a piece of abstract art that represents you. Remember abstract means we cant just draw direct pictures but you are using colour, shape and style to communicate your message.

All the best,

Mr Redmond

Good Morning Class 5,

You will soon be starting a new school year. A new year is a fantastic opportunity to make new friends, but making friends or rebuilding old friendships can be a nerve-wracking thing. Can you create a poster describing (using words and pictures) how best to make a new friend. Think about how you would like someone to treat you and what you think makes a good friend. These can be completed using whatever medium you would like.

All the best,

Mr Redmond

Good Morning Class 5,

 Over the course of the last year, you have all achieved so much. Whether that’s learning your times tables, riding a bike or having the confidence to put their hand up in class and offer an answer. An achievement is something that has been accomplished through great effort, skill, perseverance or courage.

Can you make a mind map of all of your achievements this year? Which achievement are you most proud of? Your challenge is to write about this achievement today. How did you accomplish this? What barriers did you face? Who helped you?

You could record this as a story featuring yourself as the main character, a newspaper report or even write a rap!

All the best,

Mr Redmond

Good Morning Class 5,

On our final week of 'school' we are thinking all about transition. Our project this week has a different focus for each day, today we are focussing on memories. These could be memories from your time in class at the start of the year or memories from your time learning at home. Your activity is to create a piece of art that represents one of or many of those memories. This can be done however you want but here are some ideas;

  • Photo Frame
  • Collage
  • Comic
  • Painting
  • Digital Picture/Art work

I look forward to seeing your fabulous creations.

All the best,

Mr Redmond

3456 Zoom invite

Class 3, Class 4, Class 5 and Class 6, as we can’t all get together for a special assembly like we usually would on the last day of term, I thought it would be lovely to get together online. So next next Wednesday, please join us (via Zoom) to have a chat with me and to have a catch up with the rest of your class! (Both in and out of school.)

In addition Year 6, if you would like to, you could also wear your school sweatshirt one final time!

We will be emailing out the Zoom link for your class prior to each 'meeting', so please keep an eye on your inboxes!

Class 5 - Home Learning - Friday 10th July

Good Morning Class 5,

In Great Britain, Valentine’s Day, St Patrick’s Day and Bonfire Night are just some of the celebrations that take place. Can you choose one celebration day and research how the celebration came to be?

Using the information you have found, plot the events on a timeline and include dates, details and pictures/sketches.

Now create a poster advertising the celebration day. This could be done on a computer programme of your choice or on paper.

All the best,

Mr Redmond
