Hi my lovely Ladybirds 🐞 ,

this week is the last but one for tasks on here .

Try some of these ... 

I will see you all soon. Stay safe and happy xxxx

Your homework for this coming week will be arriving by post!

Keep an eye out and make sure you have a red teacher pen ready!

Stay safe and I'll see you soon xx heartheart

Hi everyone, this week I would like you to read and listen to as many Roald Dahl stories as you can.

Matilda is my favourite, see if it's yours too.

Matilda wanted to go to school so badly, but her father thought it was more important for her to stay home and watch television. What do you think, who do you agree with?

Fold your page in half, write School at the top of one half and Television at the top of the other. Now use bullet points to write the advantages of each...

eg. Television is good because you can see and learn about different parts of the World without actually visiting there.

or... School is important because we learn to cooperate with others.

Try and fill your page with ideas about each.

I  think you may even need 2 pages for your fabulous ideas.

Use dice and roll a fabulous story.

I can't wait to read it.

Good evening everyone, I hope you are all well. Here are some activities for you to try this week....
Read through these information cards and have a go at creating your own fact cards about some unusual minibeasts.

Click on the document and have a try of the comprehension about minibeasts.

 

Here are some minibeast maths challenges for you...

A minibeast song for you to listen to and enjoy....

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utWrIWq2_tk

Have fun creating your own fingerprint minibeasts...

Finally, here is a favourite story for you to listen to.....

We'll learn about snails and slugs

this week. Try some of these activities.

 

Try writing out this poem in your best handwriting.

Please keep working through all your GOLD levels on ACTIVE LEARN I look at your accounts every week and can see when you are on there. I'm impressed with so many of you WELL DONE !  

Hi everyone,

I thought that you could use this week to look back over all tasks and activities and complete any that you haven't had time to do. I think you may have enough without me giving you even more. PLEASE keep reading every day as I can't wait to listen to you again and see how much you have improved (and you were already fabulous!)

Who would have thought a little daisy could create such learning and fun !!!

Here are some past test papers for you to help your child practice .

Don't worry if there are some questions they can't answer ,as we may not have covered those areas yet.

Just work through them slowly as they will also  familiarise the children with the way the tests are laid out . Tell the children to draw spots/ten towers or any pictures that help them solve the maths questions.

I hope this is useful. Thank you for all your support at home.

Ice Time happens every week .This is when the children choose their own learning.Some clips from this weeks Ice activities for you .
