Wednesday 29th April

Wednesday Update! Hope you are all ok - the rain has arrived but what better excuse for puddle jumping?! Remember, you can keep in touch with your teacher and class by using 2email on Purple Mash. You can even send me photos of your amazing home learning (or puddle jumping)! 


Maths: Let's explore 3D shape for the next few days. Check out Purple Mash for some fun shape activities and Maths with Parents for some time activities.


Also - have a look at these activities: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjv39j6/articles/zcsjqty


Writing: We are still using this new booklet to complete our writing learning. It follows a similar teaching style to what we use in class! We have separated out the activities into different days, but you can go at your own pace if you want. If you need a paper copy of this booklet, please call the office.

We have now completed the activities in the booklet so for the end of the week we have a few extension tasks before starting a new booklet next week.


Thursday  Friday   

Earlier this week, you made a poem about your magic box. Today think about a different sort of box you could make- a spooky box, a box full of blue things, a box with everything unicorn! 

Can you draw a picture of your brand new box and label all the things you would put in? Try to describe the items in detail - E.G swap 'a snail shell' for 'a miniscule, swirling snail shell speckled with blue and green'.

Using the guide on p.17 - 18 now try to write a new poem about your new box. We would love you to email us a photo of your drawings and poems!  
  p.17 - 18
