Children's Home Learning Week 5

  Week 5  

Welcome to week 5 of our Home learning page. You have been working so hard at home and I have really enjoyed seeing all the photographs you have sent me.  Please keep sending me pictures of all the things you do it is lovely to see your smiling faces and see you make some special memories with your families.  I hope you are also enjoying the lovely weather and that you are managing to get outside and enjoy the sun too.

This week I have some new activities for you. It will be St. George's Day on Thursday 23rd April so I have put some ideas for activities to inspire you under the red rose icon on our subject page. BBC Bitesize have started their home learning with lessons in all subjects. I have added the link for science, geography and history activities to our subject pages if you would like to have a go at them. 

Is there a friend or member of your family who you have not seen for a long time? What about writing a letter or email to them. Look at our English writing page for some ideas for your letter. I bet it would bring a smile to the face of the person who received your letter.

Luzanne and Emily have been busy guessing the Close up pictures in Zoom in Zoom out, well done girls. One of the pictures was a Blue Tit, could you carry out a bird hunt? Look at our Science page under the 'Animals in the garden week' heading for resources to help you. Who can spot the most birds?

Take care and have lots of fun
