Class Homepages

Good Afternoon Bryn Offa Team,

Just a quick note to remind you to check your individual class homepage using the tab at the top of the page. These have recently been updated with individual class email addresses so that you are able to contact your class teacher directly with any questions or concerns that you may have.

In addition to this, you will find details of Mrs Hartland’s rainbow challenge. How many rainbows can we create altogether? I have seen loads on my daily walks and they always put a smile on my face.

Stay safe and take care everyone!

My Maths

Good Morning wonderful members of Class 5.

I hope that you are all well and looking after your families, and keeping them entertained. Yesterday, I set my family a blindfold drawing challenge. They could draw anything they liked, the only rule was they had to be blindfolded! Then they had to send the picture to me on our group chat by 5pm. Why not do the same with any friends you have? Some of the pictures I was sent were truly awful but it gave us all a giggle.
I’ve put plenty of ratio homework on My Maths. These should be completed after looking at the white Rose home learning lessons. Don’t worry about the deadlines on these. Just have a go when you get the chance.

Speak soon guys.

White Rose Maths Home Learning

Good Morning

The link below takes you to the home learning link of the White Rose maths site. This is the scheme of work that we use at Bryn Offa.

From this link, you will be able to access a video demonstration of the topic currently being covered by your child, a question sheet to check their understanding and (most importantly) the answer sheet.

This section of the site is updated daily. There are a few lessons already on there. Hopefully, this will be your daily maths session all sorted.

Best wishes, keep looking after each other.

Problem of the Day

Good morning wonderful pupils of Class 5.  I hope that you are well.  It has been a really strange last seven days. 

Below is a link to the White Rose – Problem of the day.  This is updated each day with a new problem for both younger and older children.  Why not challenge your parents to see who can answer all the questions first?https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/classroom-resources/problems/

On the White Rose website, there is also a home learning tab.  This has loads of videos to show you how to complete some really challenging maths.  See if you can learn something new to teach to someone else in you house.

Finally, it’s really important to stay active.  Healthy body = healthy mind. Here is a link to Joe Wick’s daily workout on Youtube.  Why not start the day with a family aerobic session. 

  Hakuna Matata!

Home Learning Packs

On Tuesday evening, the teaching staff made the decision to start creating home learning packs in the event of a school closure. These packs have been sent home with the children yesterday and today. When the school closes, please have a look through the material and encourage your child to complete the activities. The majority of the tasks are revision based and therefore recapping existing learning. If your child is currently absent from school, these packs will be delivered at the soonest opportunity.

In addition to these packs, My Maths homework will be updated regularly by the teaching staff and there is some additional material for each year group that can be accessed using the web links below.

In order to access the additional Twinkle Packs, you will need to follow the steps below. This company have allowed all parents a free months pass in order to support the learning of each child during these testing times.

Many thanks for your support.

Athletics – Meet 2/3

Yesterday evening, the Bryn Offa athletics team competed in the second round of the Oswestry area indoor athletics competition.

After a fantastic effort one week ago we found ourselves in first place.  I am pleased to say that once again our pupils did us proud and produced another dazzling display.

Click on the link below to see the full results table.  The final session will take place on Thursday 30th January at 3:40pm.

Well done to all of the children!

Indoor Athletics

Thursday evening saw the first of three indoor athletics events being held at the Marches school.

Bryn Offa’s team had been training hard all week and produced a sensational display in both field events and the relays.  This has seen us move into first place after round 1.

Condover Visit

The Year 5s had a fantastic few days at Condover and behaved exceptionally well, as always. They challenged themselves to try new things, whether that was on the trapeze or staying away from home for the first time. I have added a selection of photos below but the children should be able to access all of the photos on the computers in school.

Year 5 Condover Visit

Evening All!

I have just checked my emails and realised that I have received one from the Year 5 pupils and staff from Condover.  It sounds like they are having an amazing time.

Everyone is having a great time at Condover and are well into their second morning activity, archery. Yesterday the children tackled different height challenges, either trapeze or zip wire. I am sure the children can’t wait to tell you all about the activities they have done.

We look forward to welcoming them back at school tomorrow afternoon.
