Eiger Class

Hi Eiger ninjas!

I hope this week has been the best one yet! They are going by very quickly for me, how about you? The highlight of my week is getting to talk to you all on the phone. I love hearing about all of the special things you've been doing. If you have any questions to ask me you can write them down for when I call next week.

I hope you've been enjoying The Papaya That Spoke. I think it's a funny story! We will be continuing with fractions for Maths because it takes lots of practice to learn them. If you’ve done some fantastic work or an activity, send me a picture of it and I will upload it on our class page under  Work of the Week  for everyone to see! If you have any ideas for our daily Special Task you can email it to me and I will post it on our page.

Don't forget to send your Epic! Book Recommendations to me. You might like to recommend a book you've read to a friend in our class. You can find them under the Daily Reading links. I know lots of you have been asking about Mathletics... we don't use it anymore! Instead I've set up two new maths websites for you to play games on. They're called:

TT Rockstars (to practice times tables)
Numbots (to practice sums)

Click the names to access the websites. Every parent has been sent an email with the details to log-in

In my spare time this week I finished my puzzle! I'm already excited to start a new one. I did some reading in the sun on my little balcony, and celebrated Mother's Day with a phone call to my Mum and Gran in Australia (we have a different Mother's Day than England!). I also started a new drawing of a tiger. Have you been doing any drawing? Here's some pictures:

Send me your pictures too and I will post them on next week’s update!

The weather is going to be extra beautiful this week, so go for a lovely walk, run, bike or scooter with your family.

It’s really important to keep exercising to stay healthy! It also makes us feel happy. I know lots of you are doing exercises at home and are going to the park. You can also do PE with Joe Wicks every morning at 9:00 am on YouTube. Here's the link to his channel.

Please keep sending me your work (a photo or a document on the computer) and email me if you need any help or even if you just want to talk.

Sending you all love, sunshine and happiness,

From Miss Tanner

Daily Reading

Don’t forget to keep reading for pleasure every day! Here are some websites doing free books:

Oxford Owl

Epic! Reading

Thank you to those parents who have signed up to Epic! Reading. You've all been sent an email with a link to access it (it is an online library). We've used it in class before.

Remember, there are lots of ways to enjoy reading!

Epic! Book Recommendations

From Melanie to Eiger Class:
Mum and I found a good section on healthy eating and cooking books on Epic.

From Aaliyah to Najeeb and Zuun:
The book I want to recommend you is called Jesse Owens by Jane Sutcliffe. I think you would both like this book because you are really into sports.

If you have read a book off of Epic! Reading that you'd like to recommend to a friend or the class, email your review to or tell me on the phone and I will post them here.

Weekly Spelling 

Here's a fun crossword to do (it's made up of last week's spelling words).
Click on the picture and it will download the document for you to type in.

Here's our new words for this week:

Weekly Times Tables

Sign in to TT Rockstars to practice more times tables and play fun games! Look in your emails for details!

Our 4 times tables are new to us! Have you counted in 4s before? Here's a song to help you learn.

Can you make groups of fours using small objects around the house? Count the groups in fours out loud.

You can also play this game (make sure you click on the 4 times tables!).

Going Wild!

Weekly Project

Answer the Catalyst Question by thinking about these questions below:

What does diversity mean?

What makes us special?

What's the same about us?

What makes us different to other animals?

Baby Poppy Update

Don't forget to email myself or Miss French your wish for Poppy!!
If you have told me your wish over the phone, I have already sent it to Miss French.

Here's a new picture of Poppy:

Miss French's email from Week 1:

Dear Eiger Class,
We can't see Poppy in the classroom at the moment but she wanted to share with you what she has been up to since we last saw her!
Amelia has shared some photos with us and also told us that Poppy can now say Mama and Dada, she can now happily sit up by herself very well and is crawling around everywhere at top speed! She can clap, we saw a bit of that on her last visit and she can pull herself up now so that she is standing!

Poppy and her family are all well and safe and they are missing us as much as we are missing them!

It would be lovely if you could write one wish that you have for Poppy as she gets older... you could email it to:

Then I can add it into a book that we can give to Poppy when we next see her!
