Welcome to Sapphire Class 2020-2021!




Home-School Learning


Monday 18th January


Dear Sapphire Class and Parents, 


Well done for completing the first full week of Home School Learning.  We are now one third of the way to half-term!  


Thank you for your support last week as the children continued with their remote learning.  There was an awful lot of learning going on last week which was great to see. 


Below is a document showing the timetable of work for the next week (Monday 18th – Friday 22nd January) and how this might be scheduled throughout the day.


Based on some feedback from children last week – the homework tasks this week will now be “due” on the day they are allocated.  Please do not worry though if your children has got a little but behind/is catching up.  If you press the “show expired” button, you can still see all of the previously set tasks and access the presentation and worksheet documents needed via the links.  Nothing is ever truly lots on j2e and it is important for you to know that while the homework may expire, the documents themselves will always remain in the Shared Files folder.  When documents are shared with the children, they are placed in particular folders:

  • “Sapphire” (accessible to whole class) – English, topic lessons etc.
  • “Sapphire - Year 4”, “Year 4” or “Mrs Rouse’s Maths Group”
  • ”Sapphire – Year 5” – Year 5 maths

If you weren’t already aware of this – I hope this means helps with your navigation around the site. 


We all know that sometimes things happen and not everything runs to schedule - even in Lockdown!  Again, I wish to stress that the children's well-being is vital throughout this period.  If they are having a particularly challenging day, then I appreciate that home-school learning can sometimes exacerbate the problem and perhaps it is best left until later / to try again tomorrow.    


I look forward to seeing you on Thursday for the next Sapphire Zoom meeting.  An invite will be sent nearer the time.


Take care,

Miss Davis

Here is today's maths lesson. You will need to stop the video at different points to answer questions from the worksheet - remember that you can toggle between windows so you don't need to print out the worksheet.
