Well we can't quite believe it is the last week before the holidays! What a peculiar year this has been. It has been strange not seeing our teachers, friends and family but it has been lovely to find new ways of staying in touch. We really hope you can join us for a Zoom meeting this Thursday at 10am so that we can all see each other before the holidays! It will be nice to see your faces and see how much you have all grown!
For the last week of home learning we have given you something based around food and a celebration...perfect! There are also some sports day activities but you should probably not do these straight after your banquet!
It is the very last week, and what would happen in school is still lots of learning but there would always be one day dedicated to watching a film; tidying trays; taking down displays; helping sort out cupboards and lots of drawing/colouring. So in the spirit of the end of term tidy, why don't you have a day where you help tidy? You may have been incredibly helpful over lockdown and helped already, if you haven't now's a good time to start. (I expect you've watched all the films on Netflix and Disney+ so I don't think I need to ask you to do that one!)
Do you have some adventures planned for the holidays? It will be nice to start getting out and about.
The teachers will be busy in the summer holidays preparing the classrooms to welcome you all back. I bet you are excited to be back with your friends again!
We hope you have a great week. Stay safe and happy. (See you on Thursday)
Mrs Carmichael and Miss Shore
You only have one more week of home learning left, so I think we need a celebration! We are going to have a medieval banquet, the perfect way to celebrate in a castle.
Use this power point to find out all you can about medieval banquets…
We would like you to create and design the menu for your very own banquet. What is your favourite food? What would you like to serve at your banquet? Would you have a giant plate of sausages with ketchup on the side? Would you like pizza? Would you serve a chocolate cake for pudding? It’s your banquet you can have any food you want!
If you’re really lucky and you ask your adults, you might even be able to make some of the food from your menu and have a mini banquet at home. Send us photos if you do!
Well done Joshua (and Jasmine) for finding the portcullis! It was part of the Abbey Gate at the Abbey Gardens. Did anyone else find it?
MATHS w/b 13th July
Follow this link to find your maths. We are now on Week 12. This week you are learning about time. The worksheets are no longer free on the website, however, as we use and follow White Rose in school we already have a subscription so from now on you will find the worksheets on here (see documents below.) Please do still go to the website first as they still have the videos to help teach the maths concepts.
So normally this time of year we would be taking part in Sports Day. As things are a bit different this year we thought we would bring sports day to you…
Here are some ideas for things you could do over the next 2 weeks. You can do as many of these sports day challenges as you want. Get your brothers and sisters or adults involved too! Don’t forget to ask your adults to take some action shots, we’d love to see your sports day at home.
Lots of you have been telling me you have been reading at home, this is brilliant! Keep it up. A little bit of reading every day will really help your learning. There will be phonics activities for you every week on Education city so that you keep using all those Phase 3 and Phase 5 sounds that you have learnt. Please try and complete these activities if you can.
This website is free at the moment. The oxford press are the company that created Biff, Chip and Kipper books among others, so this is a great resource. All the books are levelled and at your child's ability.
Writing needs to have a purpose, so maybe writing a letter to us each week would be fun for you; or creating your own book; or as some of you are brilliant at knowing every fact ever about dinosaurs and animals make a poster about your favourite animal; or a power point; or even write a script and then record yourself and send it to me...you could be a news reporter!
Find something that you enjoy doing and I look forward to seeing any writing that you do. I have been sent some lovely letters and some brilliant fact sheets. Well done Tawny Owls!
Science - Continued for July
We will leave these Wild Challanges up in case you did not get time to finish them.
Please send us your wild pictures to show on the website.
For anyone who has had problems accessing the video sent to us by Maddox's grandad, it is now on Youtube. Please use the links to watch the videos. It's well worth a watch!
