Summer 2021 -

 

The children have become very familiar with a lot of websites they can use to support their learning over the Summer. We highly recommend spending some time using Dance Mat Typing.

 

You start by learning the home row keys. Each stage builds on previous lessons, introducing new letters as you progress. You’ll soon be touch typing like an expert! At the end of each level you can test your typing speed and get a fun reward. 

 

Why learn to touch type?

When you can do it well, touch typing is the fastest way to write. Many people quickly learn to touch type faster than they can write with a pen. The important things to remember are:

■  Use the correct fingers

■  There's no need to rush!

■  Always rest your wrists on the desk.

You should take a rest, and shake your hands and arms to relax your muscles if you get tired.

It's important not to look at your hands when you are learning to type. The best way to ensure that you don't look at your hands is to cover them up - you can make a simple box out of cardboard or wood to cover both the keys and your hands.

You will need headphones or speakers to enjoy the song and dance in each game.

This week was International Bee Day. We discussed the importance of bees to our eco system and held a spelling bee. Then rounded off with some un-BEElievably funny jokes.

This week, we all wore green to raise awareness for the work we doing to support the food bank. We finished our websites and began turning them into videos using IMovie. We have already hit our target of £50 and hope to raise more by the end of term.

We rounded Outdoor Learning Week off with a dance off to celebrate our hard work. It was great to join together as a whole teulu!

We had lots of fun celebrating Outdoor Learning Week. As well as P.E we have used the outdoors to helps us use our maths skills in a real life context. We measured distances across the field and playground as well as plants and trees. We even took our phonics and spellings outdoors to help us practise by grouping the words across the yard. It’s been lovely to spend some time in the sun.

Here is a snapshot of some of the poetry we received for the range of artwork looked at in Teulu'r Ser. All of your writing was superb and we were very impressed.

Congratulations to each and every one of you who entered the Eisteddfod art competition. We were blown away by the high quality work we received.

#RecyclingHeroes - Product design and advertising. Congratulations to our competition winners. You can return to this project to find your certificates. Judging this was the hardest thing Teulu'r Ser staff have done this year! We ended up giving house points to each of you for your hard work.

Here are just some examples of the online learning that has been shared with us this week. Next week there are lots of opportunities for you to share your learning with us and we will be using them to create some collaborative videos. We are so excited to see all of your faces.
