Where Everyone Belongs
At Djanogly Sherwood we know that things are challenging and different right now we wanted to help by sharing some good resources. Here is a video you could watch and share with your children explaining how to talk to children about race and diversity. We will also be sharing lessons on Seesaw through some great books about diversity. We hope that this helps. Remember our strapline at Sherwood is ‘Where everyone belongs’.

We are continuing to phone up families to make sure you are all okay and if anyone needs any support with home learning. Don't forget we have home learning packs that can be sent home, if you aren't able to access the website or Seesaw.
This week, we are focusing on; online safety. We believe now we are using the internet more than ever, children should know the importance of staying safe online!
Here is a link for your child to visit, to play a fun game about online safety.
Thanks to Akhand in Falcon class for producing this lovely poster about online safety.
Zip it (close it), Block it and flag it (tell your parents)
A huge thanks to Praaket in Falcon as well, for your lovely bubble art design (to symbolize that we are all kept safe in our bubbles here at school and in our homes)

Home Learning Activities Summer 2
Outdoor/online creative tasks and games
Miss a Topic? Not to worry, here are some of the suggestions we made in the previous weeks of home learning:
This term we are looking at the gaps that we have yet to teach in school. We would suggest looking at the topics listed below. These will be topics the children may have some knowledge on before we left, or from year 2 but these areas will need to be developed.
Reading skills we need to strengthen:
Have a look at the VIPERS poster below. This will help you understand what skills the children need when reading in KS2.
In Maths we are looking at the topics we have not covered yet in school:
Here are the skills we have yet to look at (topics marked with a * need to be reviewed the most):
Art- Continuing to develop skills with printing, sketching.
Geography - Map work - creating a map using a key, looking at the terms latitude and longitude
History - Continue to put events in order using a timeline
*Science - Plants (describe parts of a flower and explore what plants need to survive), animals including humans (classify different animals based on their characteristics and nutrition that humans need)
RE- Christianity (Explore what prayer means and what traditions Christians have)
PSHE- Friendship (how to be a good friend, what bullying is), resilience (how to stay happy and keep going when things get tough)
*Computing - coding (algorithms and debugging), using technology safely
*Music - Listen to different songs to hear the musical instruments within them
