Mrs Robinson and Mrs Ball are looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday 9th July at 9.30am. Invitations have been sent, please follow the guidance sent out by Mrs Torkington, login to your email and accept our invitation so we know you will be there.
Before we meet on Thursday, think about what you would like to share with the class; you might have a favourite piece of work, funny story or a photo of your best lockdown activity.
See you on Thursday!
You can watch it live at 10am on the TES You Tube channel or on the Oak National Academy website https://classroom.thenational.academy/assemblies/ at 11am. The assembly is all about the importance of mental wellbeing among children, with the theme being 'spread a little kindness'.
Tune in and be part of history!
We were 2nd again this week. Please keep on doing 10 - 15 minutes of Doodle Maths every day and even if you have been in school you still need to try to Doodle at home. Come on Hawthorn this could be our week - every one do a little each day and we will be the top doodlers!
UPDATE! Ali Sparkes' daily writing challenges
Well done to all the families who have managed to access the daily writing challenge video on the Hampshire Library Service facebook page. The easiest way to do this, is to click the 'Interested' tab on their page, so that you receive the regular event notifications, each time a video is released or a live session is about to start.
Each morning, I will also update this page with a link. Some parents have still found this not to work straight away, so do persevere, as the children are really enjoying Ali's writing tips and example readings.
For the families, who do not have access to facebook, I have created a summary sheet of each challenge, which you can find in the writing folder for week 5. I have also created a couple of screen recordings of Ali reading out some examples. You can view these videos in the Hawthorn class work folder, within purple mash. Instructions for how to find these are also on the summary sheet.
Don't forget to send Ali some of your work via facebook messenger, or send some examples to Mrs Robinson to read. Some children are also posting their ideas on our class blog page.
Dear Hawthorn children and families,
Welcome everyone to week 5 of home learning.
Thank you so much for sending in your Maths task sheets, descriptions of school in the year 2099 and adding a post on our new class blog on purple mash. If you have not yet posted or added a comment, do have a look this week, as it is a fantastic way for us all to stay in touch and share positivity. We have been so impressed with all the fantastic work going on at home and love receiving emails and photographs, some of which we have posted on our class page. Keep up the great work Hawthorn class- you are amazing! See Mrs Hopkin’s home learning assembly recorded on Friday in the video resource section of our website. Teachers and support staff are also uploading videos of themselves reading to you, so keep an eye out for new uploads each week.
If you have not yet received your feedback for the set Science and Poetry writing tasks from week 3 or the writing and Maths task for week 4, do let us know. We always aim to email you back within 2 days, but as we are also working in school, keeping track of the many emails can be a challenge. Apologies if your feedback has not been done yet!
There are some families who have not yet been in contact with us. Please email us this week with an update and a selection of work completed at home. We will contact everyone by the end of this week, if you have not been in touch.
Congratulations to Will and Alfie, who have so far completed all of the set coding challenges on purple mash. New ones will be added each week. We have noticed that many of you are not doing them in order, which is not advisable as new skills are introduced in each challenge. If you get stuck, we can send out support sheets to help you, so do let us know.
We have now uploaded our work for week 5. On the overview of the week, we have asked that you again email in at least 2 particular pieces of work. Please send these in as soon as you have finished them and by 9am on Friday. We are awarding passport points for the two set tasks.
Email your English writing to MRS ROBINSON- email@example.com.
Email your negative number work to MRS BALL- firstname.lastname@example.org.
The writing challenges for this week can be found on the Hampshire Library Service Facebook page. Each challenge will be introduced at 10:30 each morning on their facebook page. If you can't attend live, you can view the recording at any time, but entries must be submitted by 12 o'clock each day. The overview in the writing folder will tell you how to view the daily challenges set by well-known children’s author Ali Sparkes. There will also be a daily Q&A session with her at 3:30pm.
We will update this page daily to add the links once the live session is over.

Remember to fill in your spelling grid and spend some time on DoodleMaths everyday too, we were second last week - it would be amazing to be the top doodlers this week!
We know that home learning can be a great challenge for all of us and our families, but we can do this! So keep going everyone and thank you to all the parents who have been so kind and supportive over the last few weeks. It really means a lot to know that we are all working together during these difficult times.
From Mrs Robinson and Mrs Ball
