Week Beginning 23.03.20
Dear Parents and Children,
Please find in the class page the following suggestions of activities that your child can do whilst the school is closed.
- Practise the key maths facts that we need to know by the end of Spring Term (see the list in your child’s homework folder) - keep practising little and often as you have been doing so far this year.
- Play maths games on https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/index.html
- Keep up with the daily reading! Read a range of texts and ask your grown up (or an older family member) to ask you questions about what you have read to develop your comprehension skills.
- Ask a grown up to sign up FOR FREE on Oxford Owl:
Click on ‘Join Us’, sign up and choose e-books to read! You can select books to read that match your reading colour band at school.
- Write about anything! Write a letter to your friends (as you may not see each other for a little while), write a postcard, write a story, or write an information book about something that you are interested in. Remember: correct punctuation in everything that you write and use interesting words!
- Practise spelling any common exception words that you know you find tricky – use the tricky word mat given to you at parents’ evening and go through Look, Cover, Write, Check as you normally do with spelling practise. Please also find a copy on the class page.
- In the summer term we will be learning all about plant growth. Plant some seeds or a bulb (either in a pot or in the ground in your garden). Keep a record of what happens to it over the next few weeks. Take a photograph too if you wish!
- Find out as much as you can about the parts of plants and how to grow them ….and keep them alive!
- Have a look at these clips on https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpxnyrd
- If you can get outside, practise key movement skills such as starting, stopping, balancing, skipping, hopping, and changing direction when running.
- If you have a skipping rope, challenge yourself to do more skips each day.
- If you have a ball, play throw and catch with a partner, challenging yourself each day to catch the ball more times in a row without dropping it!
- Think of an exercise routine that you can teach to your family to all keep fit.
- Do not forget to warm up and cool down by stretching afterwards!
- Try yoga, look at https://www.cosmickids.com/ lots of these can be watched via YouTube.
- Choose a category from the Spring 2 topic homework. Complete one of the challenges and share it with your family.
- Continue researching the life of Admiral Nelson and life on board HMS Victory. Think of a fun way to share your learning with your family, for example give them a talk about his life, make a poster, think of questions to ask each other and have a quiz. Have a look at these websites with lots of information: https://www.nmrn.org.uk/nelson https://www.hms-victory.com/restoration
- Locate places on a map / globe / in an atlas that Nelson visited during his life.
