Lockdown Learners of the Week
A great big thank you to all the parents that have supported their children with home learning. We truly appreciate any effort that has been made to ensure your children continue with their education during this unsettling change of routine. Just like in our celebration assemblies, we felt it would be appropriate to celebrate some of the children who have been working hard this week.
Take a look at some fantastic home learning our children have been doing! We love seeing our children continuing their learning from home. 🙂
Year 1 Dolphins
In Year 1, I was really impressed this week by Eloise’s amazing story she has written about the space rocket she has made. Here is her amazing work:
Year 2/3 Whales
In Year 2/3, our lockdown learners of the week are Samuel and Jaden! They have been working hard at home completing the learning packs and completing their tasks set on Purple Mash.
Year 5 Turtles
A big shout out goes to the following children who have been working hard to complete their home learning, and have handed in work on Purple Mash:
Amelie, Lexie M, Ashira, Yusuf, Lexie T, Hanifa, Jumana, Raihan, Aleemah, Lucas, Oskar, Junior, Mahdi, Rosa, Umayyah, Davi and Sihan.
Year 6 Sea Horses
In Year 6, our lockdown learners of the week are Bibi and Nathalie! They have been working hard at home completing their tasks set on Purple Mash. Well done girls.
NSPCC Number Day – Outdoor Learning
For the NSPCC number day, Dolphin class went outside on the field in search of objects to measure. Our current topic in maths is measurement and to help us practice our measuring skills and language we went in search of a range of sizes of twigs and sticks.
The children got really stuck in and we found tons of sticks all ranging in size. They then ordered them to shortest to longest.
This week, Year 1, 2 and 3 got the opportunity to experience a taster of being in the circus. We learnt new skills involving juggling, hula hooping and plate spinning.
The Snail and the Whale
Inspired by our school trip to go and see The Snail and the Whale in the theatre, we are focusing our literacy learning around Julia Donaldson’s fantastic book this half term. We have been spending some time describing the characters in the story and to help us with this we decided to mould our very own snails out of clay, here is some of our creations!
Making our Autumn Leaf Light Catchers
We all had a fantastic time showing our parents around our class, we shared all of our amazing work. It was really great to see all the effort each class made for their items to sell. Here are a few photos of how ours were made, the children all showed great determination.
Creating our own Egg Box Dragon.
In Dolphins class we have been really busy developing our writing skills. We have been reading a book called The Egg Box Dragon , and we thought as a class we would like to create our own Dragons.
Here are the results:
