Morning all,

Here is a photo of Brego to keep you all updated!



You can see here how much he has grown!

Here is today’s list of suggested activities:

- GoNoodle -

- Phonics -

A little more practice on the ‘ear’ sound!

near
rear
shear
spear
tear
year
appear

- English -

Pobble!

Have a look at these strange pictures. Can you write exclamations about these pictures? Remember that an exclamation needs to be loud or interesting and different from usual. Make sure to use the exclamation mark at the end of the sentence!

- PE -

Throughout the summer term, I would be teaching athletics and tennis to the children. While at home, I am going to leave this open-ended for you and make this a repeated PE 'job' for the coming weeks.

If you have the facilities and space to do tennis, teach your children balance and coordination, by balancing a ball on the racquet while walking and jogging, get them to bounce the ball like a basketball using the racquet, try to encourage good eye to hand coordination by getting the children to drop the ball with their non-dominant hand and hit the ball after a bounce with their dominant hand.

Encourage a good grip of the racquet by showing them either the frying pan grip or the axe grip. Use a swingball if you have one!

After a while, try to feed them throws and ask them to hit back to you with control.

Encourage a forehand style shot and work up to a backhand shot.

Once they have shown understanding have a game where you shout out forehand or backhand and they have to return the ball using the correct shot type. 

Other shot types could be practicing the volley (hitting the ball without it bouncing) or the smash (hitting a ball in an over arm style above head height shot).

Always encourage control over power, as balls in next door's garden will soon halt PE play in these days of social distancing! 

Over the coming weeks, try to get to a level where you could have a rally of five or ten simple shots with your child and incorporate moving to the ball where space allows it.

Where athletics are involved, track and field style events could be replicated at home through the use of jogging and running as track events or the use of makeshift hurdles. Field events could be trying to improve and progress the throwing technique, working on jumping, both high and long. 

This is an open-ended PE task that is open to interpretation and adaption to fit your needs. Most of all, have fun!

- Lunch -

- Art -

Mindfulness art – Have a look at these mindfulness art pictures. You could print these out but you don’t need to. You could always try to make your own and then colour it in.

Assorted pictures

Wildlife pictures

Words of encouragement pictures



Thanks for all your hard work and efforts!

Cheers and stay safe!

Morning all,

Thanks to all of you for the lovely work you have been submitting! It has been lovely to have a look through!

Here is today’s list of suggested activities:

- GoNoodle -

- Phonics -

It’s time for the ‘ear’ sound, from hear with your ear!

ear
dear
clear
beard
fear
gear
hear
near


- English -

Well done for the nice sentences you put together yesterday!

Today, we are going to have a go at using adverbs of time.

Have a read through this quiz and see if you can select the correct adverbs of time to fit in the sentences.

Afterwards, see if you can use any of the adverbs of time to make a couple of yesterday’s sentences even more amazing! You can re-write them with them the adverb of time included.

- Break -

- Maths -

Can you tell someone in your house in your words what a quarter is and how you find it?

Can you cut these shapes up in to quarters? Some are very tricky, you could draw them first then use something straight to split them up in quarters.




- Lunch -

- ICT -

Log on to PurpleMash.

You are free to have a go at anything you like on there, however, here are a few suggestions.

In topics, there is a section on old and new transport.

In topics, there is also a tab called PHSE. In this folder, there are loads of fun activities.

There is also a few great activities in the music and sound area.
 
Enjoy!

Thanks for all your hard work and efforts!

Cheers and stay safe!

Morning all,

I'm in school organising the classrooms ready for some of you to return to school!

Here is today's list of suggested activities:

- GoNoodle - 

- Phonics - 

Use your 'Fred fingers' to write down these words containing the 'are' sound.

stare
spare
scarecrow
aware
beware
compare
nightmare

- English -

In your remote learning books, can you write a sentence or two about each of your pictures you completed yesterday?

Remember, make sure your handwriting is lovely and neat, make sure you remember the big 3, and why not try to use interesting adjectives and punctuation such as exclamations marks!

Tell me what you have been up to!

- Break - 

- Maths - 

This week, we are focusing on fractions. So far, you have all done a bit of work on finding half of something.

It's time to have a look at finding a quarter of an object or shape.

Watch this video all about fractions.

To make a half or quarters the parts of an object have to be equal.

So if I have a pizza and I share it with Mrs Cooper, Mrs Barker and Miss Kelly everyone gets the same amount.

We all have equal parts of the whole pizza.

Cut out pieces of paper into circles, squares and rectangles. 

With one piece, model folding a square, circle and rectangular piece of paper in half them half again.

Show that there is four parts, but are they equal?

Explain that when something is split into four equal parts, it is in quarters.

Get the children to have a go at folding some of the paper into quarters and get them to colour in one of the quarters.  

- Lunch - 

- History -

This half term, we are going to be exploring the history of transport.

The first historically significant event we are going to cover is the first flight. 

This was done by two people known as the Wright brothers and today I would like you to learn a little bit about them by looking through this presentation here 

Thanks all,

Mr. H.

Morning all and welcome back!

I hope you have all had a restful and relaxed half-term and had chance to enjoy some of the warm, sunny weather we have had.

Research suggests that this spring has been the sunniest since records began back in 1929 and that we had the driest May for 124 years!

For all of you keen followers of Luna and Brego, they are both fine! Brego has been enjoying the sunshine a little more than Luna. She finds it hot during the summer months.

Here are a few photos of them out in the garden and around and about over half-term!



Here is today’s list of suggested activities:

- GoNoodle -

- Phonics -

Spelling shed is fixed!

This week I would like you to practice the ‘are’ and ‘ear’ sounds.

The ‘are’ sounds look like the word are but makes the ‘are’ sound from the care and share card.

Have a go at writing these words down using your fred fingers:

care
share
bare
dare
hare
rare

And I would like you to have a go at reading these words aloud!

Click here to view the words and press space bar or directional arrows to stop the words.

- Maths -

Warm – Up

Can you write down as many numbers as you can starting at 0 and working up to 100 in 3 minutes?

(Remember to get them the right way around!)

Fractions

Click here to watch - Give me half!

Chat about what half of an object is, for example a pizza, cookie, apple, chocolate bar, strawberry, circle, square.

Click here to view a presentation all about finding half of objects and shapes. Some of you may have already split these objects and shapes before half term but there is a little extra the bottom to chat about and think about. Don’t go past the stop sign. Explain that for it to be a half, both parts need to the same and equal.

- Break -

- English -

Synonym Starter:

How many different words can you think of for the word good?

If you have any room left in your remote learning books, (if not a piece of paper will do) can you draw 4 things that you enjoyed doing over your half-term? 



- Lunch -

Have an afternoon enjoying the sunshine!

Cheers and stay safe!
