Remote learning

In the uncertain times that we are currently living in, it is important that we are fully prepared for the possibility that we may have to have a full or partial closure of school depending on the local Covid-19 situation. 

There will also be instances where individual children or classes will be self-isolating due to coming into contact with a positive case of Covid 19. 

 As a school we are producing detailed plans for remote education so that children will have access to a high quality education at home. As we put these plans together they will be put onto this page. 

The main source of communication between the teacher and home when remote education is taking place is Google Classroom. Your child’s login details for Purple Mash, MyMaths, TTRockstars and Google Classroom have been put into the front of their reading diaries but please do let the class teacher know if you are unable to access it.  

Please find further information below about each of the online learning platforms that we use:

 

TTRockstars 

All children from Year 1 to Year 6 have a login for Times Tables Rockstars. This is a fantastic website that supports children in learning their times tables. 

Once your child has logged in they should play in Garage mode. This has an automatic training mode which starts with easy times tables and as the children get them correct it adds in more and more times tables. This means that it is pitched at the right level for the children so they're able to practise getting quicker at tables that they know rather than struggling over many that they don't know. 

 

Purple Mash (KS1 and KS2)

Purple Mash is an online portal containing many activities for a full range of subjects. Each child has their own login and teachers can set tasks for the children. When children complete a task on Purple Mash they can submit it to their teacher who can comment on it. 

 

NumBots (reception) 

NumBots is an online game and playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. These are critical foundations in maths so we are excited by the impact NumBots will have.

 

MyMaths

MyMaths is an interactive time-saving resource for use in the classroom and at home that is easy to use alongside any other maths resources to consolidate learning.

 

Google Classroom

Google Classroom is a free web service developed by Google for schools that aims to simplify creating, distributing, and grading assignments. Every child has their very own Google Classroom account and this is how work will be assigned to them. They can also email the class teacher using the class emails. 

 

 

Newsletter 3 July 2020

Dear Parents and Carers                                                                                                     3 July 2020

It has been lovely to see our Year 4 children in school this week. Meeting them at the door each morning and seeing them look both a little nervous, but also very excited to meet up with their class mates has been a real joy for me.  It is hard to believe that we only have two weeks left of this academic year. On Wednesday, we will be sending home your child’s school report. We have made the decision to send these through the post this year so both home schooled and those pupils in school receive their reports at a similar time.

It has been a very busy week for our home and school learners – here is a quick summary of what has been going on in each of the classes.

Hatchmere have had a great week this week and made the most of the weather, still enjoying getting out in the dry spells! Yesterday they completed a 3D shape hunt around school which was lots of fun. Looking at sea creatures this week, they created handprint fish for a display in the library and completed some descriptive writing. In phonics they’ve been practising segmenting words to spell them which helps the children in their independent writing.

This week Oakmere have been busy learning about positions and directions in maths.  One of the activities was to produce a treasure map to find the magical treasure!  The attention to detail was fantastic, adding landmarks and clues to help the person find the treasure.  As well as this, the children wrote a list of instructions using positions and directions for the map.  In literacy, the children produced fantastic fact files based on the work of discovering dinosaur bones around the world.  An impressive week! 

Sandymere have continued their home learning and the work they have sent in has been very impressive. The children have enjoyed writing and performing “Eye spy colour poems” inspired by Pie Corbett. Mrs Garner has been impressed with the performances emailed in and is very proud of the class. In maths, the children have focused on time, looking at five minutes intervals.

This week Blakemere have been learning all about money in their maths lessons. They have explored needs and wants and they have learnt about the importance of saving money. In literacy, they have been focusing on applying their grammar knowledge to up-level sentences. As well as working hard with their maths and literacy, Blakemere have been getting creative and decorating stones. We have had some great ones sent in: a unicorn, insects, people and a monster!

It's been lovely to have Nunsmere back this week and see their happy faces. They have adjusted brilliantly and quickly, playing with each other really well. They have produced some fantastic pieces of writing during their days in school and have taken part in some great maths challenges, as well as PE and some creative lessons too! It has been lovely to see you for a few days in school and we look forward to welcoming you back in September.

Newsletter 20 December 2019

Dear Parents and Carers

  

Well, this newsletter brings a close to our first term of the academic year. I cannot believe how quickly the time has passed. It has been yet another incredibly busy, but successful term.  I am really proud of everything the children have achieved over the course of the first term. The Christmas performances have been the icing on the cake for us and are a lovely way to finish the term.

 

Most recently, with the publication of ‘The Primary League Tables’, it was revealed that Delamere Academy is in the top 0.4% of all schools nationally – this is for our Year 6 SATs achievements in reading, writing and maths. For the second year in a row, we are the number one school in the league tables for Cheshire West and Cheshire. We are absolutely delighted with this news and I want to say a massive thank you to all of the staff here at Delamere and the families for their continued support.

 

At the beginning of the week the children had a special Christmas treat. They gathered in the hall to watch 'Beauty and the Beast'. The children loved the pantomime and even joined in with some of the songs and dancing. As always, there are some fantastic pictures on Twitter of the children enjoying the show.

 

On sporting front this week, we have taken part in the annual Academy Trust Year 3 and 4 swimming gala at Ellesmere Primary School. Competing against the other schools within the Trust, our children took part in a variety of individual and team relay races. All of the children performed fantastically well, finishing as runners up! Also this week our Year 3 and 4 team took part in a Sandstone Sports Partnership Indoor Athletics Competition finishing as Bronze Medallists! Well done to all of the children who took part.

 

On the 24 December at St Peter’s Church, Reverend Elaine is leading the Christingle Service at 4:00pm.
