Home Learning Week Beginning 13.7.20 

Welcome to the last week of home learning.

I am posting this week's maths and a memories activity (attached below).

However in our key worker group we are having a 'Wellbeing Week'. It is very important to look after your wellbeing and that includes parents and carers.
We shouldn't underestimate the effect these last few months have had on us all and recent research shows that music, laughter, exercise and being outdoors can all help!
So this week in school we are going to be playing games outdoors, telling jokes, baking, listening to and singing along to our favourite tunes and generally having fun.

I would love to see some photos of you having fun and enjoying yourselves as I have missed you greatly over the last few months. 

I wish you all a fabulous and safe summer and look forward to seeing all your smiling faces in September.

Home Learning Week Beginning 6.7.20 

Well we are heading toward the end of term now.
It has been lovely to see some of you in school but I am missing all of you who are learning at home.
I hope you are all well and let's hope we see a return of the sunshine this week.

I set a literacy task last week that can last for a few weeks so I am not setting anything new this week.

Maths is all about measures again and there are introductory videos for each lesson on the White Rose website
The worksheets are attached below.

This week we are thinking about plants that we eat.
Powerpoint and activity attached but you could also hunt in your fridge and cupboards at home to find food that comes from plants.
Maybe you can think about which part of the plant it comes from - the roots, seeds, stem, etc.

Apparently the sun is going to shine so maybe you can take some of your learning outdoors.

Have fun!

Welcome back to home learning! I hope you all had a fabulous half term and enjoyed the beautiful weather.
Don't forget tomorrow (Monday 1st June) is an INSET day so you have another day to relax.
This week I have planned some activities around the 'Summer' theme so hopefully your learning can take you outside.

There is a fun activity to do do called 'Animal Mash Ups'
There is also a reading comprehension about birds you may see in your garden. Perhaps you could try and spot some of these birds in your own garden or whilst out for a walk.
Finally there is a SPaG activity to do.

Lesson 1 - 10 x table
Lesson 2 - Sharing
Lesson 3 - Grouping
Lesson 4 - Odd and Even Numbers

This week we are thinking about the change from Spring to Summer.
I have attached a powerpoint to get you thinking but maybe you can go on a hunt to see what signs of Summer you can see.
What plants and flowers can you see at this time of year? What is happening to the trees? What birds can you spot? What is the weather like? 
What are people wearing? Why? You could take photos, do some drawings or keep a weather diary. There are lots of different ways to show what you have learnt. I look forward to seeing your ideas. Have fun!
