Welcome to our new page where we can keep in touch.

Weekly Update 24th May 2020

Happy Half Term!

Hello everyone,

Again it has been lovely to receive your emails this week showing what you have been doing at home. I am glad that some of you enjoyed the Science experiment and I have received some brilliant and funny poems, which you can see below.

It is great to see what you have been doing. This week would have been Menai and although it is sad that we could not go, Toby had an attempt at improvising Stand-Up Paddle Boarding with a skateboard and two poles- very inventive and it looked lots of fun. And just look at how gorgeous those kittens are, and now Amelia will get to spend lots of time with them. Mum is carefully watching her though. 


Woody (and his brother Wilbur) have been helping their mum since Lockdown began as part of the Alsager Coronavirus Support Group, helping people with their shopping. This has meant they have visited vulnerable people, collected their shopping list, checked they are getting value for money in the supermarket and then delivering their shopping to them. This has meant they have also been able to talk to people (social distancing taken into account of course) which has really helped those who may have felt lonely. Well done to all the family on showing such kindness.

Times Tables Rock Stars 

Well done to all those children who have been on TTRS and have improved on their scores. Remember it is the Studio where, based on 10 games, you will start to earn your Rock Star Status- try it out this week.

A special well done to Herb Snider who has continued to work on his tables and achieved a new scoreof 2.17 seconds and a new certificate. He is a Rock Star but is now also top of our class leaderboard! Your new certificate is waiting for you below.

Bedrock Learning- Well done all of you who have been on and been answering questions on the reading. I am really, really impressed with the names I've spotted, how long you have spent on your learning and your progress. This is a great effort and it is super to see who is able to engage with the home learning. 

Reading - Please keep reading at home over half term. I would like you to do at least 30 minutes a day like we would do in school and then take an AR Quiz Test. I have checked and a big shout out and well done to those who have but I would like to see more of you taking a test when the book is complete. 

A super well done to all those children who completed their Star Reading Test this week. Your scores were brilliant and it does show that you have been keeping up with your reading and your progress and reading ranges have all improved. 

Don't forget, Accelerated Reader is open for you to do testing at home during the day; just remember to use the AR Bookfinder page to see whether your book has a quiz. If you run out of books you could read something else like an appropriate magazine, newspaper, website, game instructions or a blog/blurb about a film or book. You could always listen to David Walliams who is reading books out loud each day,  'Elevenses with David Walliams' to hear more.

 Reading at Home

Shared reading is a great way to develop children's language and communication and boosts their reading skills. Here are 7 Top Tips which have been released by the Education Endowment Fund.

Remember for those of you who want more or a variety of activities Mrs Windel has put a link on our Home Learning Pages with lots of artists to follow and draw with ' Home Schooling Art Links'.


Mrs Lindblad has also added a music page, 'Love Music Trust Home Learning' where you can join in with a daily song if you like. 


RE: Rachel from Christ Church has created a facebook page under 'Christ Church Families at Home' if their is anyone who would like to join. It is an open group who will be sharing Bible stories, discuss ideas, prayer and craft ideas, songs and videos and ways in which families can explore their worship together. A message from her is that anyone is welcome to join.

Pete Howard also has a page on facebook, found under 'Alsager Community Church' if there is anyone who would like to join. It is an open group and they are also streaming online community services for any of our families who would wish to join in. 


I am really missing you all, I know you think I am only saying it probably, but I am and I can't wait till we are all back and we get to see each other again. In the meantime I continually look forward to seeing and hearing about what you are all doing at home and even seeing some of you out walking. 


Take care and stay safe. 

Love Mrs Dyde
