Home Learning (for school closure)

Well done to everyone on your first week of learning from home. Seeing all of the work you're doing and your pictures really brightens our day. We are missing you lots but we know you'll all be having a lovely time at home. We won't set any work over the weekend (we'll be kind and let you have a few days off!!) but please do try and read a book either together or use your reading eggs log in to practise some of your reading.

Did any of you manage to stay awake for the clapping at 8 o cock last night? We thought this was brilliant and I know the doctors and nurses really appreciated it. Could we maybe go one step further? Could you record yourself saying a little message to the doctors and nurses and then we could share these on our website? I know some doctors and nurses personally who would love to see them! Can't wait to see some of your messages!

Let's hope the nice weather continues, keep smiling!!

What an amazing day we're having for World Book Day! We've looked at a range of books by our favourite author Julia Donaldson. This included Stickman, Cave Baby, Room on the Broom, Paper Dolls and the Gruffalo. We enjoyed reading all of the books over the morning. We made paper dolls, we used tweezers to find the characters from Room on the Broom in the spaghetti, we painted pictures like Cave Baby and we made some of our very own stickmen. We used all of these to retell our favourite stories. Also throughout the morning we've snuggled up with our favourite books and a drink of hot chocolate and finally we've taken part in a book swap! We can't wait to get home and read our new books!

In Science we have been looking at different materials. We did an investigating using different materials and water to find out which material would be the best to fix an umbrella. We knew we needed a material that was waterproof because we didn't want to get wet! The best material was fabric A which was a form of plastic.

In our Geography lesson we looked at OLQ: How is the seaside different from other places? We began by sorting out pictures showing different areas without any categories. We managed to sort them into countryside, town and beach independently. We then looked at lots of vocabulary and tried to match this into the piles thinking about what each word meant. We then thought carefully about the words rural, urban and coast and applied these to the piles of pictures. We looked carefully at the pictures of coastal areas and began to look at the specific features. We came to the conclusion that the coast is an area where the land meets the sea.

We had so much fun at forest school but  we made sure we had our waterproofs on so we didn't get wet! We made dens out of sticks and used lots of different paint  to paint in the puddles. We also used paint, sticks and glitter to make magic potions and we used the spades and shovels to dig in the mud . We wore our wellies so we could splash in big puddles, which was so much fun! We used planks of wood and crates to test our balancing skills. We finished forest school with a yummy hot chocolate to warm us up.
