Children's Home Learning Week 7

  Week 7  

Hi, welcome to week 7.

I am so proud of you all because you are working so hard whilst having fun and creating special memories with your families. I miss you all but I really enjoy seeing the work you send me and also seeing your smiling faces in our Zoom sessions. Thank you to all the children that joined in with our  Zoom sessions Monday morning.

I have created a Zoom challenge page on our Class 2 homepage so take a look and see all the lovely character 'loo' rolls that our class have made. Zoom challenge 2 is to do or make something using red, white and blue to celebrate VE Day. I look forward to seeing your creativity.

We have another exciting week ahead. In the table below I have mentioned some of the new activities on our class subject pages.

Subject Page Content
English - Reading E-books on Oxford Owl website
Science Learn about plants, electricity and sounds
Art Make rubbings to create artwork
PSHE Make a Power of Kindness Calendar
DT Design a climbing frame for our school
Geography Learn about Africa

Play Sumdog this week and see if Class 2 can win the North Crescent School competition. Can you make it into the top 10 on the leader board.

Finally click on our VE Day page and see activities to help us to celebrate the day. I hope you have fun celebrating the day, maybe you could have a picnic in the front of your house and wave your flags. Can you learn a World War 2 song in makaton?

Don't forget whatever you do please keep sending in your photographs so I can put them on our class home learning page for everyone to see. This is our way of staying in touch with each other. Take care Mrs Barber smiley
