Hi Elder Class, how is it already July?!
We know that lots of you have been back in school this week. We can't begin to tell you how incredibly proud that we are of you and how you have settled back into school so well. You are all super ready for High School! And to those of you who haven't returned to school - we are still thinking of you and hope that you are managing to keep in touch with family and friends.
This week in a very exciting week for us - Mrs Dineley is looking forward to seeing her mum later today for the first time in a long time and Mrs Bailey can't wait to get her roots done!
Please keep in touch and let us know how you are getting on. You can email the school on firstname.lastname@example.org
Only 2 full weeks left of your time here at Lander Road Primary School!
Take very good care of yourselves,
Mrs Dineley & Mrs Bailey
Online Learning Activities Update!
Times Table Rockstars!
There are still only four Year 6 pupils in the top ten! They are in position 1, 2, 6 and 7 - I wonder if we could all move into the top 5?! Remember - knowing your times tables and corresponding division facts will really help you in all areas of Maths!
Elder Class have slipped to 6th place! What has happened?! And the boys are by far out-performing the girls! Come on Year 6! This week's assignment is the last one and it is based on the full Upper Key Stage Two Word list for Year 5 and 6. It is really important that you know these words before moving on to High School.
We are sure that you are still enjoying reading and quizzing at home. Don't forget to log on to myon.co.uk and enter your login information:
We hope that you have had a look at the texts below and are enjoying reading them. Remember, Mrs Murray has kindly written a guide to using QR codes in case you don't know how to access them.
Most mobile phones and tablets automatically have a QR code scanner built into their camera. If this is the case, just open the camera on your phone, as if you are going to take a picture, and aim it at the QR code (black and white square). The phone camera will focus in on the code (this can take up to a few seconds) and will then open the internet page/app etc. that the QR code is linked to.
If you do not have a QR scanner inbuilt in your phone or device, simply download a QR scanner app from your app store such as: • Kaspersky’s QR code reader and scanner • NeoReader Barcode Scanner • Bar-Code reader • QR code reader by Scan Once you have the app, open it up and align the scanning camera with the QR code and, just like through the camera, it will take you to the link within the code.
Take a break activities!
Action for Happiness
We have both been really enjoying looking at the daily activities and focusing on the positives!
Here is the one for July. This month we focus on resilience - a key attribute for us all! Today's activity is to put a problem into perspective and see the bigger picture. It is really important to think about each and every situation and find the positives - even when you think it is a problem. Wonder what solutions you can come up with?
Positive Footprints - Beating Barriers
This week's activity is about tackling new experiences and links nicely to our theme of resilience. This is a particularly good activity to do, thinking about High School in September and encountering things for the first time.
Transition - Emotional Health and Well-Being
We know that going to High School will be at the forefront of your minds at the moment. We do hope that you are feeling excited, but you may also be feeling nervous and anxious - these feelings are completely normal! Please have a look at the following links and videos which were sent to us by our school nurse. They will make you think about the emotional and physical changes that you might go through over the summer.
Empiribox Science - Teeth
In this lesson we are going to explore the different types of teeth in the adult human and how they compare to other animals. We will also complete 2 investigations to understand the damage that some foods can have on our teeth. Your scientific skill to focus on during this lesson is 'Evaluation.'
Oak National Academy
We are now on Week 11 of lessons! There are 3 lessons a day - Maths, English and a Foundation subject - and an additional PSHE lesson today based around 'The circle of life'. Don't forget that there is also an online assembly every Thursday at 11.00am.
Maths and English
Please find below the answer booklet for the Maths and English activities that you have been completing over the past two weeks.
You will all be familiar with 'Espresso' that we use in school for support with English, Maths and other subjects, as well as our weekly news. You can now access Espresso at home by going to www.discoveryeducation.co.uk Click on the small login button at the top, then select Espresso, and enter:

Class reader - The Hobbit by J.R. Tolkien
Has anyone nearly finished the book? We would love to know your thoughts!
Year 6 visit to Crosby Lakeside - Scrambler Bike initiative - Friday 13th September 2019.
As part of the Merseyside Police Scrambler Bike Project, Year 6 visited Crosby Lakeside to participate in a number of team building and individual sporting activities. We had a great day taking part in kayaking, raft building, dodgeball, archery and rock climbing. As always, we participated with enthusiasm and determination. Well done Elder Class!
A Day in Politics - Enabling Enterprise Day - Thursday 18th October 2019.
Our recent challenge day explored the world of politics! We worked in teams to come up with our own manifestos, party names, logos and posters. At the end of a hard day’s work we presented our ideas in a mini election. All our teams were brilliant; working with creativity, confidence, positivity and determination. Our elected winners of the day were The House of Elder - well done!
Enabling Enterprise Visit - Bruntwood, Liverpool - Friday 19th October 2019.
As a school we have been part of the Enabling Enterprise initiative for a number of years. We take on challenge days to develop a number of skills, with the view to give the pupils an insight into the world of work and working collaboratively on a project. The skills we work on are listening, presenting, problem solving, creativity, staying positive, aiming high, leadership and teamwork. As part of our experience, we were able to visit a business in Liverpool and we loved having the opportunity to work with people from the business as well as creating our very own towers - we were very persuasive, enthusiastic and creative! Thank you for having us for the day Bruntwood; the history of the property and range of businesses that use your building in the Cotton Exchange is amazing!
