Hello everyone! How has your week been? It really does feel like the end of term now, doesn’t it? Right now, it feels like there should be a thunder storm to clear the air and I can smell someone’s barbecue being lit – a sure sign of a British Summer – barbecues, with the threat of rain thrown in!
Many thanks for your continued communication, it really has been appreciated and it has been so heart-warming and uplifting to see and hear about all the fabulous ways that you’ve been both educating and entertaining your children throughout this past term – you have all made such amazing memories which will stick with you as a family forever!
And so here it is – my last blog before we break up for the Summer, in two day’s time! Below you will find a selection of fun, end-of-term type activities – please dip into them as you see fit – whatever works for you! Instead, maybe you might want to create a sports’ day of you own or even get your child(ren) to put on their own Summer show!
Above all, I just want to say a massive thank you to each and every one of you for your continued support, energy, creativity, determination and positivity – I am more proud than ever to be a part of the incredibly special family that is Trenode – there really is no other place like it!
Have an amazing Summer – rest, play and if possible, dip into the online subscriptions (Mathletics, TTRockstars, Numbots and Reading Eggs) – these will help to make the children’s transition back into school much easier and smoother.
My story continues this week and will conclude on Friday – but this is not goodbye for the Summer – merely ‘Au Revoir’ – please do keep in touch via email and we will keep you updated as and when we have any news for you:
For one final time this school year – take care, stay safe and keep huggling!
Here are the Home Learning worksheets and answer sheets for the coming week!
Don't forget that the teaching videos can still be found on the White Rose Home Learning website, along with the Friday Maths challenges!
Keep using TTRockstars and Mathletics and, for those of you who have them at home, please keep dipping into your Power Maths books too!
Hello everyone! I hope you’ve all had a good week – I think we have all welcomed back the sunshine with open arms!
This will be the final set of Home Learning resources in the format that you have been used to. Next week, Tuesday will be the last day of term and we will be putting up some fun, end of term activities on the final blog!
If you have previously requested it, Home Learning will be printed this Monday and next. We will let you know when they are ready to collect.
Please continue to share your lovely photos and don’t hesitate in emailing us with any questions or to share any of your fun learning experiences at home.
Once back in school, we would really like to create a display which celebrates all the amazing memories that you have created throughout this, very different, Summer term!
Apologies for my technical issues – Friday’s installment of ‘Awful Auntie’ is now up and I will continue to post until the end of term – we will finish this story together!
Have a great week; stay safe; take care and keep huggling!

Well done to those of you who took up the challenge of a TTRockstars battle against myself – it was a close one but you did it!
You won – 2183 - 2087!!
Thank you to all of you for your ongoing positivity, hard work and support – I know it’s not always been easy and we all have good days and not-so-good days but it’s been great to see all your fabulous photos and hearing how much you’ve been enjoying using Reading Eggs and TTRockstars – don’t forget Mathletics is available too!
If possible, and if nothing else, please can you try and encourage your children to continue dipping into these online resources over the Summer holidays – it will really make such a difference when we get back into class.

Hello everyone! What a strange old week, weather-wise! Rain, thunder and then glorious sunshine again!! I hope that you’ve been able to make the most of the better days and have perhaps been able to venture out a little further this week or maybe join up with another socially-distant ‘bubble’?
Well done to the Trenode children who are attending Looe – the staff there have said how amazing you’ve been and that you have all been an absolute credit to Trenode – we are all very proud of you!
For those of you remaining
at home, we are very proud of you too! Thank you so much to all of the adults
for emailing us – you have all been in contact and that is fabulous! We love
hearing what you have been learning about; where you have been; what you have
seen and all the new and inventive ways in which you are making these bizarre
times work for you and you families! Please do keep sending in your photos! (A
big thank you to Lexi for her amazing lava lamp photo seen here this week!)
This week is the Cornwall Virtual School Games and I hope that you can all get involved across the coming week. It is really easy to get involved with and results can be submitted online by parents. Scroll down below this blog to see the details.
There is one tweak to Cardinham’s Home Learning resources this week. I have changed the Wednesday English. “Hooray!” I hear some of you cry! I have put together a new resource which asks the children to use their Reading Eggs logins for 20-30 minutes (Please encourage your child(ren) use them more than this through the week, if you can, and email me if you can’t find your child’s logins) and then play a game called ‘Crystal Maze’. It is a grammar-based game and then I have put together a list of websites/videos/activities/games which link to the various grammar and punctuation objectives for each year group.
It doesn’t matter
what you dip into – just find something that you think you could do with
practising on a Wednesday and let me know how you get on. As this is a new
document, there are no-doubt tweaks to be made – for example, I need to find
alternatives to a few ‘Americanised’ links – I’ll adapt this in time, but
please do feel free to email me with any feedback as this will help me to spot
where improvements can be made!
As in previous weeks, please scroll down below this blog for the coming week's Maths resources.
Don’t forget that BBC Bitesize have also produced some home learning resources and the government’s online virtual learning platform, Oak Academy, also has loads of fun and interactive lessons with videos attached:
