The Tyrrells School

Aspire, Care, Learn for Life

Week beginning 01.06.20

Welcome back!

We hope you enjoyed your half term break with your families and that you made the most of your time in the sunshine - wasn't the weather fabulous?!


Thank you to those of you who shared some photos of your holiday activities. It is great to see you enjoying yourselves and trying new things.


Please remember we would like to see two posts from you on seesaw each week. This is so we can communicate with you about your learning and check that you are finding the work ok - that its not too hard or too easy.


This week the restrictions have been reduced slightly. You might get the opportunity to meet with other people you haven't seen for a while - with a 2m social distance. These reunions will be great opportunity to catch up in person with our nearest and dearest. We would enjoy seeing your happy reunions on seesaw.


Daily tasks

  • Make sure to complete some physical activity e.g. Joe Wicks, yoga, daily walk with your family or an activity of your choice.
  • You should continue with your daily reading (20 minutes per day). Remember to note down any new or exciting vocabulary.
  • Spend some time on Times Table Rock Stars.
  • Challenge yourself to learn 10 spellings per week. Can you use the words in context?
  • If you use Lexia in school, please continue to use this at home.
  • Volunteer to help with tasks around the house e.g. making your bed, washing up or helping with the dishwasher, looking after pets, helping with cooking.

Grow Wild in June with The Wildlife Trust.

Monday is the first day of June and the start of Grow Wild with the Wildlife Trust. If you have already down loaded your pack, well done, you are ready to start.  If you haven't downloaded your pack and need the details, have a read below. Remember to include some pictures of your daily activities so we can see all your fabulous Outdoor Learning.


This June, join thousands of people taking part in The Wildlife Trust's annual nature challenge, 30 Days Wild! Your challenge is to do one wild thing a day throughout the whole month: for your health, wellbeing and for the planet. That’s 30 simple, fun and exciting Random Acts of Wildness.


Although the challenge begins in June, you can sign up and download the resources now in preparation for your challenge! Follow the link to sign up. You will get a free, downloadable pack of goodies to help you plan your wild month, plus lots of ideas to inspire you to stay wild all throughout June (and beyond!). For extra ‘bonus’ items, keep an eye on your emails for additional, fun activities, from instructions for baking hedgehog cupcakes to a beginner’s guide to wildlife photography.

Corona the Caterpillar

Over half term, did you paint a stone to add to our growing caterpillar along the school fence? If you have, please make time to come and add it to our creepy crawly friend! If you haven't had time to paint yet, no worries, he is still growing so get your paints out and have a go!!

Remember to take a picture of your stone and add it to Seesaw for your Class Teacher to see.
