What a busy two weeks of learning at home you have had! It is been heart-warming to find out how much you have enjoyed the home learning packs as well as all the other wonderful activities you have been involved in.
I know a lot of you have also enjoyed looking at our class page to see what your class mates have been up to. So here are a few more pictures that I have been given to share.
Have a wonderful Easter break. Stay safe and keep well!
It is your last day of term. Let’s make it a fun one!!
Here are some ideas for alternative tasks you can do. Remember these are extra activities to do rather than the ones in your pack so you have more to pick and choose from.
How about writing an Easter poem? It could be all about Easter, Spring, new life or whatever you fancy! Why not design and make some symmetrical egg patterns on paper or card? Once you are finished you could hide them for a family member to find. Can you remember the PowerPoint of the Easter story? What about designing your own stained glass window? Maybe you could do some Easter baking with your parents.
Don’t forget to email me pictures ( along with permission from a parent ) of the things you have been doing so I can post them here.
Here is an Easter holiday challenge for you. Create something amazing out of the empty
Easter egg packaging you might have.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter holiday. Stay safe
and don’t eat all your Easter eggs at once!
Wishing you all a wonderful April. Only two days to go until
it is the Easter holidays.
If you are looking for some different things to do, I have some ideas here for you. For Literacy, you could write the Easter story in your own words, using the sequenced pictures from yesterday to help you. I have also found some Easter multiplication mosaics to help you practise your times tables with. Have you done your Geography project yet? It was to research all about river pollution. If you look in your home learning pack you will find details about the project. I had provided some websites for you to use. You could create a poster to show what you found out.
It has been wonderful to hear from you and to see all of the
amazing things you have been up to. I have especially enjoyed finding out how
you are taking the opportunity to use your writing skills to write letters to different
Following on from the Easter story PowerPoint yesterday, here
is a task to sequence pictures from the Easter story into the correct order. If
you cannot print off the files, draw 6 of your own pictures to show the main
points of the Easter story.
For Science, I have provided a PowerPoint about
classification keys based on characteristics of animals and there are a range
of different activity packs for you to choose from (the stars shows the level
of difficulty-more stars means trickier work).
Don’t forget to keep in touch and send in any pictures you
would like me to post on our class page on the school’s website.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are set for your
next week of home learning before you start the Easter holidays.
I am giving you a few ideas of extra things that you might
like to do this week so you have something a bit different than what is in your
home learning pack. Feel free to pick and choose but please do not feel you
need to complete everything as I am just providing alternative options.
For SPaG there are sentence correcting sheets. While for
literacy, there is an Easter story powerpoint for you to read through and
become familiar with. The following websites are available for
online books to read. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

Well done to you all for almost completing your first week
of home learning. Thank you to those of you who have been in touch. It has been
wonderful to find out about what you have been doing and to know you are
enjoying this new way of learning. I am
glad to see you are happy and having fun! If we were at school today, I would
make you all ‘star of the week’.
Well done Tobie for all of your efforts this week. You made
these yummy looking jam tarts.
Well done Levi for impressing your mum with your knowledge of angles and perpendicular lines.
If you would like a picture of you or your work added to the
website, send me an email with permission from a parent.
I hope you are
having a good week and are now settling in to learning from home.
Today would be our
‘Maths Morning’ so I thought I would provide you with some extra maths sheets, just
in case you wanted some more work to do.
Where possible, I have provided the answers.
You would normally
have PE and Music this afternoon. I thought maybe you could try some of the PE
challenges in your pack or, if you haven’t already, try a work out with The
Body Coach. For Music, if you have your recorder at home with you perhaps you
could practise playing that. Here is a link to some music from the BBC, School
Radio service. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2bL2NL6Cwlsj2Cs4BXkvg9X/primary-music
usually be our ‘Literacy Morning’. I know I have given you some persuasive
writing to do but I wanted to let you know about a poetry competition that you
The Young People’s
Poetry Prize 2020 competition is to celebrate the work of the Cornish poet
Charles Causley. It aims to encourage and enable young writers to have a go at
writing poetry themselves.
To inspire the
young poets of the future to write their own poetry, this year’s theme for the
competition is ‘Environment’.
The competition is
free to enter and open to all young people aged between 5 and 18 years old.
Poems will be judged by Patrick Gale and a panel of poetry judges with prizes

I have been
wondering how you are getting on with your home learning pack. You are all very
welcome to send me pictures of your work or the other exciting activities that
you have been up to. If your parents give their permission, I could post some
of your pictures on to our Colorado Class page on the school website.
Alternatively, you could send me a message to let me know how you are getting
I am thinking of
you all and hoping that you’re all feeling happy and enjoying the sunny weather.
