Hiya everyone, please don't worry if some activities on Seesaw have changed - your work is still there, I have just had to try editing some to provide new activities on there. No one panic! laugh

Maths activity - Addition and subtraction (be careful as it is quite easy to miscount by 1 or 2). 
Literacy activity - Read through carefully and correct the spellings. 

EPIC BOOKS reading challenge - We have currently read 130 books and have spent 26 hours reading. Fantastic, keep going - let's see how much more we can add to this xx

PE with Joe Wicks

For this final week of online learning, please find literacy and topic based activities here. 

Our maths, spelling/reading and well-being activities will still be assigned on Seesaw. 

Any literacy or topic activities completed, please continue to send them to me via Seesaw. 

Our google meet session this week is now on Friday 12th at 2:00pm

Have a fabulous week, 

See you soon!! smiley

FUNKY FRIDAY 12th March

 

Creative activity - Create a new hat for Willy Wonka (one you can actually wear yourself). Think about how you would like it to look? What materials would you use? How would you decorate it? Would it be colourful? Simplistic? Or even full of sequins? 

 

Literacy activity - Once you have made your hat, write a set of instructions for someone to follow if they wanted to make your Willy Wonka hat themselves. Make sure your instructions are clear, concise and easy to follow. 

 

Maths activity - Measure your head, make sure you hat fits! How big would your hat be if it was double the size? Or even triple the size? How big would it be if it was half the size? 

 

Thursday 11th March 

 

Literacy activity - Design a new book cover for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and write your own blurb (a short summary of the story, in your own words - make it interesting as it should encourage people to read the book). Send me a photograph of your new book cover and blurb via Seesaw. 

Topic activity - Create a Mother's Day card for your mother or a thank you card for someone you love.

Make it bright, colourful and use beautiful handwriting. Upload a photograph of your card to Seesaw. 

Wednesday 10th March 

 

Literacy activity - As Mother's Day is on Sunday, write a thank you letter to your mother (or someone special) who has helped you throughout this difficult time. A thank you letter to our lockdown heroes, for helping us with online learning, taking us for walks and keeping us safe. Please write this in your best handwriting as I'm sure your fantastic family member who receives it will be thrilled. 

(You could look back at your poster about letter writing to make sure you include all features of a letter. Send me a photograph of your letter via Seesaw). 

Topic activity - Create a list of all the fabulous, delicious and peculiar sweet treats you would have if you had your own Chocolate factory. Think about the name of your treats, how they would look, smell, taste and what the texture would be like? You can then draw examples of your new sweets. 

Tuesday 9th March 

 

Literacy activity - Fix the sentences, rewrite these sentences correctly using appropriate punctuation. 

 

 

Topic activity - We have already looked at the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Roald Dahl), so now we are going to look at the illustrator. Research Quentin Blake and find out more about him, then draw yourself and your family going to the chocolate factory (inspired by his illustrations). Look at his illustrations carefully as you will need to draw you and your family in the style of him. 

Monday 8th March 

 

Literacy activity - Spot the spelling mistake! Highlight the incorrect spellings, write the correct spellings for Mr Whoops to practise. Can you think of your own sentences using these words? Be careful, they can be tricky to spell.  

Topic activity - After reading chapters 6-8, you should have met the first two finders of the golden tickets! I want to know your own opinion on Veruca Salt. What do you think about her? Is it fair that she received a golden ticket? Why isn't it fair? Does she deserve it? Would you behave and treat your parents like it? 

Write a paragraph (in your best handwriting), giving reasons for your opinions about Veruca Salt. 

Another busy yet wonderful week of learning. 

Fantastic news, we will be back in the classroom together super soon. I am so excited! laugh

Here are some examples of the fab work you have sent me this week.

Please stay safe, see you soon!!

Wow! We have made it to half term! You have all been fantastic and have worked extremely hard. 

I have just been looking at our class journal on Seesaw and I am so excited to tell you that Dosbarth Bumblebees completed 2,064 online learning activities! The highest number of activities completed by 1 child was a magnificent 159, with many of you VERY close behind. Thank you all for your hard work and mams/dads/grandparents and everyone else who has helped you in this difficult time.

You really are wonderful! I am so proud of you, da iawn pawb! Please enjoy your half term and take this time to relax with your parents/grandparents as you really do deserve it

Stay safe, we can do this smiley

It's Children's Mental Health Week - Express Yourself! 

Please take the time to watch this assembly as it is extremely important that we look after our mental health - particularly at this time. It explains how important it is to express ourselves and our feelings and how this can help with our mental health. 

Look after yourselves (mams and dads too!) heart

Some of you have been busy creating your 3D sweets, here's a sneak peek! 

I have loved seeing your snow day photos, it has been so lovely to see you enjoying! laugh

I have signed our class up to EPIC BOOKS. This is a fantastic site to use to practise daily reading. 

You will need a grown up to enter their email address into the site the very first time you log in, after that I believe it's just the class code you need. 

Our class code is on Seesaw!

Happy reading laugh x

Dydd Santes Dwynwen Hapus pawb, Happy Saint Dwynwen's Day everyone! heart

25th January 2021smiley

Congratulations everyone on another fantastic week of online learning. 

We have learnt an awful lot from apostrophes to fractions to creating bar charts on j2data for the first time! 

I am so proud of you all, but I am also extremely proud of your parents and families for how they are coping, helping and supporting you in this difficult time.

Please give them a hi-5 from me as they really do deserve it! 

Mams, dads and everyone else in your family, please take time and look after yourself too. 

You and the children are doing so well, so please when it all gets too much - remind yourself of this quote and we will all get there in the end. 

Hopefully it won't be for much longer, 

Stay safe,

Miss Evans x

Clue 3. Well done everyone - you cracked the code! Our new topic is called ... 

What could Scrumdiddlyumptious possibly mean? What a strange and funny word! laugh

Clue 2. You have all received golden tickets in the post, what could this possibly mean?

Here is our first clue. What could our topic possibly be about? 

Write back to me on Seesaw with your ideas! 

Good morning Bumblebees. 
There will be new activities allocated on Seesaw daily including a language, spelling/grammar, maths, topic and well-being task. Please complete whatever you can, but please do not worry about anything. It is a new way of learning, and I am learning with you!
