Welcome to a new month! I can't believe it's July already. Before we know it the dark nights will be upon us and then in a blink of an eye it'll be Christmas!
I hope you all have your PE kits on are all feeling energised this week as it is Sports Week! We could have guessed what week it was due to the weather being ever changeable, which is typical for our usual Cowick Sports Day -will it rain? Will it be too slippery to run?
As you can see nothing is safe in my house. Gizmo has just checking out my cereal bowl to see if there is any milk left for him, which he always does. I have to be quick and make sure everything is washed up, he definitely keeps me on my toes.
Take care of yourselves and your family and stay safe

"Educational comics that turn KS2 school curriculum content into engaging comic strips, smashing motivational barriers to reading and learning. This especially includes Dyslexia and Autism.
As a bonus they also use colour-coding and footnotes, as well as a dyslexia-friendly font. This way, our comics make learning more accessible and encourage reluctant readers to get into reading, increasing their engagement and learning retention.
Welcome to schoolwork, reimagined!"

The BBC have launched BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons. each day there is an English, Maths and Foundation Subject lesson for each year group. These may be of interest to some of you.
For those children who are interested in the world around them, there are some wonderful ideas on the STEM website -some Science starter or other activities that they can complete with equipment they can find at home.
I have also just found some online crosswords that you may enjoy. Click HERE to access them.
Below are some other ideas you may wish to use during this difficult time.

Song of the week
This weeks song is dedicated to Morgan and her dog Fergie who had puppies recently. The puppies were all named after famous songs such as 'Come on Eileen' 'Jolene' and of course 'Crackling Rosie!'
It's amazing what we can achieve when we work together even when we are apart
Hello and welcome to the Water Class page.
Water Class are the Year 3 and 4 class at Cowick. We have a lot of exciting things happening in our school and within our class room so please take a look. In Water Class we work incredibly hard to achieve our best, and we strive to be friends with everybody.
Water Class 2019-20
At Cowick we like to make our Curriculum fun and inspiring for the children. We use a theme to link in most of our lessons. Spring Term our topic will be 'Who's your mummy?' which will be a comparison between Ancient Egypt and Prehistoric Britain.
The children will be researching and studying the ancient civilization whilst making comparisons to the campsite of the Lost Boys from Peter Pan, which will be our class book.
In Water Class your child will be expected to complete work at home, which will aid them in their learning. Each week, children will be expected to complete Spellings, Readings, Times table Rockstars and IXL.
Children in Water Class will be learning two sets of spellings each week. One of the sets will be from the children's year groups expected spelling list and another list we shall focus on in school, which will follow different spelling rules and patterns. The children will be tested on the lists sent home each Friday in a traditional spelling test and new spellings will be issued. The children have the opportunity to earn themselves tokens for successfully learning these.

Children are also expected to read regularly at home. The children will receive a pack of books from school on a weekly basis. We ask you to listen to your child read on a regular basis. We shall collect the pack of books in on a Friday to change them. I want to promote the love of reading to the children so please encourage children to read books, magazines, online articles or even comics that they love as this will help to broaden their reading skills in school to develop their love for reading.
If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to make an appointment to come in and see myself. I hope you and your child have a fun filled and enjoyable school year in.
Thank you for your support.
In Water Class All children have logins for both...
