After the holiday we will be doing some more close observational drawings in Art.
During the holiday have a go at drawing some fruit, choose a piece of fruit you have at home and look at it closely. Look at the colour and the shape. Have a go at drawing it on a piece of paper, then add colour!
We would love to see any drawings that you do, please bring them in to show us!
During the holiday remember to:
Read! Read your book to an adult, enjoy a story together, visit Catford Library or simply visit Bug Club!
Get moving! Ride your bike or scooter, go for a walk, go swimming, play football in the park – anything that gets your body moving.
Relax and enjoy time outside! Make sure you spend time outside just like you do on a school day. Don’t forget to rest, the Summer term is very busy!
Find something you enjoy doing independently! Build a model using lego, make a paper airplane of kite, set up your teddies and play schools or a farm shop (like we have at school!)
Have a happy half term holiday! See you all back at school on Monday 5th June 🙂
They did a fantastic job, from coming up with their lines and learning them to learning and perfecting their singing and dancing to ‘What a wonderful world’ and ‘Here comes the sun’. They were brave, confident and enthusiastic!
Thank you parents/carers for coming to support your child. If you were unable to come today a video will be uploaded to the blog soon.
This week we have continued our English focus on the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk‘ we had a very exciting afternoon on Tuesday because we went to visit the Giant!
The Giant lives at the very top of our school, we had to follow the signs to get there. When we arrived we saw his pants hanging up! We read him the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and he fell asleep, we heard him snoring!
At home draw a picture with a kind message for the Giant, we were happy he was so friendly to us! Bring in your picture and we can deliver it to the Giant’s house! 🙂
In Maths this week we have continued to practise our Addition and Subtraction skills.
At home have a go at these Maths games on the Top Marks website – click on the links below!
This week in English we have continued to learn the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. After becoming confident re-telling the story, the children have now made their own story maps! Our next step is to write the story.
Use the story map below to re-tell the story to someone at home.
In Maths this week we have been practising our addition and subtraction skills!
Try some of these addition and subtraction games on ICT Games use a laptop or a tablet.
Please remember to listen to your child reading for 10 minutes every day 🙂
This week we would like you to practise these common exception words. Read them, say them out loud and write each word three times. After practising the words, ask an adult to test you to see if you can remember how to spell them. Then think of a sentence for each word. For example: I saw a mouse at the farm.
This week in Maths we have been practising arrays. At home try and make an array using fruits and vegetables and describe it to an adult. Draw a picture of your array or ask an adult to take a photo and send it to your teacher.
We hope you all had a restful holiday. It has been lovely to see the children and hear all about their time away from school 🙂
This week we went on our ‘Spring Walk‘ looking out for signs of Spring. We made a story map of our walk, re-tell the steps of our walk to somebody at home.
If you have time this week go on your own Spring walk and notice the changes you can see. The children are bringing home a ‘Spring Scavenger Hunt’ sheet this week that you can complete when you go out walking!
In Maths this week we have been learning more about ‘Time‘. At home go on a time hunt! How many clocks or devices that tell the time can you find?
Can you spot when the time is on the hour or half past the hour?
Using a piece of paper, record the time you have dinner and the time you go to bed each day for a whole week. Is it the same time every day? Bring it in to share with your class!
