Good Morning Adventurers – Happy Friday

Go on Tapestry and watch ‘Lottie the Llama’ do a happy Friday dance. Perhaps you could make up your own dance and post it on Tapestry. It could be our Friday dance to welcome the weekend.

I’ve been really loving all the amazing habitat boxes you’ve been making. You’ve all been putting a lot of thought into them and they are all very different!

Don’t forget that today you can join up for the libraries virtual reading challenge as part of the ‘Silly Squad’

 We’ll share a book every day next week on Tapestry.

As it’s friday I’ve changed today’s learning so no handwriting or key skills but hopefully lots of other exciting things to do:

English – create a fact file for one more animal of your choice. Carry out some research and organise your information under subheadings. I chose a spider today.

Maths – listen to part of the story ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’  then find ingredients to measure and pour into your own potion. You can also join Professor Pipette in a capacity dance.

DT – finish off your animal habitat or simply enjoy playing with it.

The weather is not great today but I’m sure we can have a lovely time and dance the rain away!

Enjoy your day.

Good Morning Adventurers – It’s baking day!

I just thought as the weather still isn’t very nice and I had two very soft, brown bananas in my fruit bowl that it might be good to try out our weighing skills and make some banana bread (or you could try another recipe depending on the ingredients you have at home).

We will continue with our key skills, animal fact files and add to our mini beast/animal habitat boxes.

I’ve been very impressed with all the work you’ve done so far this week so please keep posting it.

Today’s activities include:

Handwriting – practise the letter ‘Xx’

English – research information on your chosen animal and write this up using subheadings.

Maths – Key skills for Year 2 and Year 3 then try out your weighing skills baking.

DT – continue to add more detail to your mini beast/animal habitat box.

French – find the French names for different animals.

There’s lots of activities to choose from today and I hope you enjoy them. (More information for each task is on Tapestry)

I look forward to hearing from you.

Enjoy your day

Good Morning Adventurers – Welcome to Wednesday!

Well, we’ve woken up to a cloudy, rainy day and the sunshine has gone for now!

But I think it’s a great day for doing some indoor exploring and learning and myself and Mrs Burton have lots of super activities you could try. (More details on Tapestry)

Handwriting – practise the letter ‘Ww’

English – think of another animal you would like to study. Draw and label a picture of it and write down some facts you already know. I’ve chosen the Painted Lady Butterfly as we raised these several times in class.

Maths – Key Skills for Year 2 and Year 3 then we are going to explore weight/mass/. You could try making your own balance scale to compare the mass of different objects then weigh 10 everyday objects and order them by their mass/weight.

Geography – choose a country you would like to visit and create a leaflet about it.

DT – carry on adding more detail to your minibeast/animal box.

There has been some fantastic work posted on Tapestry and I am very proud of everything you are doing Adventurers. Please keep sharing.

Enjoy your day!

Thursday’s Learning Suggestion – Plastic Bottle Bird Feeder

Good Morning everybody,
The beautiful sunshine has been smiling at us this week, and after spending lots of time outdoors, I thought you might like to create a bird feeder. This will give you something wonderful to watch, as you look out of your window, or eat your lunch in the garden.
This bird feeder is very simple to create, and requires few materials. It also allows us to do some recycling: using any plastic bottles that are around the home. 
Here is the link to the video, which explains how to make the feeder, and exactly what you need. 
I have also included a written document, as you may find this easier to follow. 
Send us pictures of your bird feeders, and see if you can capture any birds in action. 
Have a wonderful day,
See you at story time 😄

Good Morning Adventurers – Happy Friday!

As it’s Friday and half term next week I’ve changed today’s learning a little bit.

English – read the beginning of the story ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ by Drew Daywalt and then answer some reading comprehension questions. I’ve shared the rest of the story with you.

Enjoy your day and I hope you have a lovely half term holiday.
