Welcome to Remote Newsletter Number 3!

Thank you for keeping in touch- we have loved receiving all the emails, photos and drawings. it's great to see that you are all trying to keep busy at home. We know that it can be difficult at times and we can't wait to be all back together, but for now we all need to be patient and follow the guidelines as difficult as it may be! If you need anything at all, you can call school or use the info@crestwood-p.dudley.sch.uk - we will do anything we can to help you in these difficult times.

Keeping our WELLBEING in good shape!

Just to let you know that our mile track is now complete! It's looking great and we can't wait for you to be back to try it out- to run a mile, you will need to do 7 laps. The workmen have also been busy improving the area around the edge of the KS2 playground so there will be a brand new picnic area ready and waiting for you on your return. 

Thank you for all your book reviews, here is one that Mrs Cadman picked out- there are plenty more to read in the new Book Review page in 'Pupil Pages' on the website.

Finley in Year 6 has written a review for The Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

Plot 1- Lyra and Pantalaimon were strolling around the great building of Jordan College but when she passes the hall she sees the master of Jordan pouring poison into Lord Asriel’s drink so she and Pantalaimon hide in the cupboard. When Lord Asriel came into the hall for an assembly with the scholars, Lyra and Pan sprang out and sent the drink flying off the table.

Plot 2- Lyra and Pantalaimon set off on a journey to the north with Miss.Coulter. A few days into their journey, Lyra realised who Miss.Coulter really was… She was a KIDNAPPER so, in the middle of the night, Lyra and Pantalaimon ran away because they both knew that all Miss.Coulter needed them for was to help her capture more children.

Plot 3-Lyra and Pantalaimon travel to Svalbard with Lorek Byrinson and Lorek challenges the bear king, Lofur Rakinson, to a fight for the title of king of the bears. After much bloodshed, the fight was over and the winner was Lorek Byrinson. After this fight, Lyra realises who her parents are, Lord Asriel and Miss.Coulter.

Rating- I would rate this book 5 stars because in most books people just stay in one place but in this book Lyra and her daemon go many, many places and the end of this book starts the next book which is called The Subtle Knife.

Class Pages & Home Learning

Well done to those who are completing their Purple Mash activity every day- if you are still having problems logging on to this, please call school and we can help you out. Teachers are still busy adding activities and information to the class pages so make sure you take a look at these regularly.

There are more and more home learning resources being created every day. We do not want to put additional pressure on families by saying that children 'must' complete a certain number of activities each day- please do what you think is right for your child and your family situation. We appreciate that families with older children may need to use laptops etc for lessons that secondary schools are setting. If this is the case, or you're struggling to print out resources (we know printer ink is really expensive) or you don't have a computer, we will very happily print resources out for you and either arrange for them to be collected or post them to you. Please don't feel you can't ask!

From next week, all class pages will have a link for White Rose Maths Home Learning. If your children are keen to do some extra maths work, this is definately worth a look.

For more ideas, go to our our website and look in the Home Learning section of the Pupil Pages.
