I cannot believe we are already in May! Below are your tasks for this week. Don’t forget to access the Whole School blog where you can find some whole family activities to enjoy.
We are continuing with the theme of traditional tales this week. All of the learning from last week is on there as well so you can work through any parts that you have missed.
When you follow this link you will find some learning on grouping and sharing. This is the topic we were learning about before school closed so this will be a great way to consolidate your learning.
These phonics videos are excellent as they are using the same vocabulary that we use in school. You can just carry on with the next episode so don’t worry if you didn’t manage five last week. Work hard but keep it manageable.
Wider curriculum tasks
Although it is tricky being at home for so long, let’s think of some of the positives of the situation. Draw around your hand. Use the palm to write your name. Use each finger and thumb to write or draw five things that you are enjoying whilst you are at home. I have attached mine below for an example.
Here is a great fun video to keep us active and to help build our muscles for tasks like writing and painting. Pete completes this outside in his garden which is a great idea but you could also do this inside.
Fun Fact Friday: I really enjoyed reading your facts that were in the comments or were emailed to me. Here is my fact for this Friday: The strawberry is the only fruit that has its seeds on the outside. It would be great to hear your fun facts too!
Last week there was a lot of rain. How did the rain make you feel? Tell somebody at home what changes you could see. You could also draw or write this. Here I have described what I could see. The leaves on the tree outside of my window are droopy and have droplets falling to the ground. The rain has filled up my plant pots like a mini swimming pool for all of the bugs outside. The ground looks wet and slippery.
Please let us know how you are getting on, either via comments on the blog, or by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
