Home Learning Week Commencing 30/03/2020

For this week’s home learning, we would like the children to focus on the topics we have been looking at this term: Dinosaurs, Castles and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. All children can try some of the writing activities: designing and describing a new dinosaur, creating a family coat of arms or designing a new chocolate bar. Year 2 children may wish to also write a recipe for their chocolate bar to explain to Willy Wonka how to make it in his factory.
There is also an activity for one of our school values “Being Kind” where children and their families can celebrate acts of kindness in their households.
Remember to continue reading with your child and practise their high frequency words and spellings.

In addition to the activities provided, we would like to stress the importance of daily reading, high frequency word reading and practising spellings. Details on how to access the Letterjoin scheme can be found here Letter-joinHomeAccess

Keeping Active

At school we get the children outside as much as possible and we would encourage you to do the same. You can find some great ideas for Outdoor Activities

And don’t forget you can practise riding your bike, skipping, going for a walk or just running around in the fresh air. Muddy Puddles also has some great ideas.

There are now many celebrities and fitness instructors including Joe Wicks and the Strictly Dancers that are producing online workouts – try searching on YouTube and get moving!

Hobbies

It would also be a great opportunity for the children to start a new hobby- examples could include knitting, sewing, making dens, looking at flags of the World, Kings and Queens, playing and inventing new board games etc. In addition, it would be great for the children to engage in some sort of physical activity such as making up their own dance or obstacle courses.
