Class Danube – Home Learning Work Starting Monday 4th May

Hi Class Danube,

Well done for all the hard work with your home learning. I am really proud of how motivated you have all been!

Please find below next week’s work:

Year 1

Year 2

Have a great weekend,

Miss Adamson.

Class Danube – Home-Learning Activities Beginning 27.04.20

Hi Class Danube,

A massive well done to all of you for the work you have been doing this week, I have been very impressed with how hard you are working!

Please find the work below for next week:

Year 1

Year 2

It is a similar format to last week’s work. Spellings can be found on ‘week 2’ of the spelling document that was sent last week and for history, it will be finding out the second question on the document sent last week. I hope it all makes sense.

I completely understand that the amount of work is ambitious and for those of you that are still working or working from home, this may not be realistic. Please just do as much as you are able to.

Have a lovely weekend, hopefully the sun will continue to shine!

Art Activities Over The Easter Holidays

Hi Class Danube,

I know that some of you have continued to follow the YouTube videos over the Easter holidays and others have thought of your own craft activities. I wanted to share the lovely activities you’ve been doing, the different things you have made are very impressive!

Maisie you have been very busy – I know how much you enjoy art activities and you have done every idea I have suggested. Wow, well done!

It must have taken you ages to create your cross, very impressive!

Oliver, you have been so busy with so many different activities. Here are a couple of the things you’ve been up to:

It’s been wonderful to see all the activities you have enjoyed.

Oscar’s swapped paper for his Nanny’s fence and drawn some beautiful pictures on it!

It looks like you’re having a great time with Nanny!

Sienna has been making salt dough and used it to create different things.

I love the snowman you have made!

Summer has been very busy with art and craft activities. Here’s a couple of things she’s been up to:

Bella, Daisy and Chloe have enjoyed lots of different activities – hopefully Mum and Dad have still got some flowers left in the garden (sorry, most of the activities I suggested, involved using flowers).

Eden and her sisters have loved creating and making different things. I think your Elmer’s are much better than the one I made!

It’s lovely to see all of you doing the different art activities together!

Lydia must have spent ages creating her own Easter tree! It is incredible, the artistic talent definitely runs in the family!

Thank you for all your emails and examples of work. It makes my day seeing all the wonderful things you are up to and just knowing that you’re all safe and well.

Have a great week and enjoy the sunshine!

Class Danube Home-Schooling Resources – Week Beginning 20.04.20

Hi Class Danube,

Thank you for your lovely emails and pictures of what you have been up to over the Easter break. It has been great that so many of you are keeping in touch. I will add some of the pictures to the website early next week. As you know, next week is a slightly shorter week with Monday being a PD day so it should ease you back into learning at home.

I understand that some of you don’t have printers, most of the tasks can be done without printing as I tried to set more ‘activities’ than worksheets in case printing isn’t possible.

Please find attached the resources you need for your child for the week:

Year 1 Resources

Year 2 Resources

The timetable should make it clear which resources are for when but if you have any problems, please feel free to email me. The maths activity booklets are just additional resources if you are getting through the work quickly so don’t feel that you have to do them.

I hope it all makes sense when you look through the resources.

Have a great week!

Miss Adamson

Class Danube – Examples of wonderful learning at home

Hi Class Danube,

Welcome to the first day of your much deserved, Easter break. I have been sent some wonderful examples of home learning and wanted to share them with you all on the website. If I haven’t included things you’ve sent me and you would like me to, just send an email to explain that you give permission for pictures to be added.

Archie and Tobie have been exploring on their walks again! Archie has been making his very own pizzas. They look delicious!

Bella and Daisy have been very focused during their group guided reading sessions. They have also made tiffin, I bet it was really tasty!

Caleb has been super busy with Mum and Rory. He’s been reading very tricky books, completing challenging maths work, labeling parts of a real plant, researching about Samuel Morse, writing a spring poem and going on adventures! Very impressive!

Jayden has been incredibly busy too. He’s managed to keep a usual school day routine – wow! He has been completing some very tricky maths work, writing stories, finding out about Samuel Morse and much more!

Maisie has done brilliant research about plants, well done Maisie!

Oliver has been writing letters, going on adventures, reading stories and practising his times tables. Very impressed!

Oscar has been so busy! He has almost finished his home learning pack – wow! He has even had time to bake cakes and go on bike rides. Really impressed with how much you’ve persevered with your learning Oscar!

And R has made his very own Morse code machine – very cool!

Have a lovely rest over Easter!

Class Danube Thursday 2nd April

Hi Class Danube,

We have made it to the end of term! I am so proud of every single one of you! The work you have sent me and the activities you have been doing has been amazing. I have been so impressed with how resilient you all are. This will be my last post on the website until after the Easter holidays but I will try to continue to add a YouTube video each week day (when I can). This won’t be things relating to what we would have been learning but more creative, artistic activities that will hopefully keep you busy for a while. Please don’t feel that you need to keep up with the YouTube videos during the holidays, they are optional encase you’d like an idea of fun activities to do.

Here is the link to today’s video, I hope you enjoy spotting my mistakes! I think my cat wanted to be in the video too!

For a literacy activity click on and watch the film clip about the meerkats. After you have watched it, have a go at describing the beautiful setting of the African plains.

Thank you for all the pictures you have sent in!

Bella, you have been up to so many exciting things!

That lamb must have been heavy!
It looks like you’re doing a very important Science experiment!

And Daisy has been doing lots of lovely things too!

The picture you created is beautiful!
The lamb looks very comfy on your knee!
I love the goggles, very professional!

Summer has made a beautiful chick and lamb along with her poem about spring. Well done Summer!

Finn has been extremely busy painting, cooking pancakes, researching his own geography topic, making a campfire (with marshmallows!) and much more…

It looks like you’re having a great time Finn!

And Oliver has been baking, making lots of things out of junk modelling, researching about plants, writing poems and much more…

Those cakes look delicious, you’ll have to send me the recipe!

Eden has worked so hard to find out what plants need to survive, you have presented your findings so beautifully and clearly Eden!

Thank you so much to all parents /carers for all the lovely emails, pictures and examples of learning. It makes my day seeing all the wonderful things you are all doing.

Have a lovely Easter break, you definitely all deserve the rest!

Stay safe, I will look forward to seeing you all soon!

Miss Adamson

Danube Class Wednesday 1st April

Hi Class Danube,

I hope you’re all having a great week so far!

Please find the link to today’s video:

Have a go at finding out what a plant needs to survive. You can use the internet or books to research. Then you can display the information how you like, for example a poster, leaflet or flyer.

So today is April fools day, rather than playing tricks on your family, I wonder if you could have a go at writing jokes together. I’ve written a couple for you to get you started:

How are false teeth like stars?

They come out at night!

How do you make an octopus laugh?

With ten-tickles!

I hope you enjoyed them! I would love to hear some of your jokes too!

I have received fantastic examples of work over the last day, well done all of you who are working hard and staying focused!

After watching yesterday’s video, Eden wrote a beautiful poem about Spring.

Your handwriting is fantastic Eden, well done!

R has been very busy with his learning, he’s been finding out about Picasso and has created a cubist picture. He has also been practising and recording his times tables, I think you can agree, they are very impressive and he’s in year 1!

And S has been become a scientist and created her own volcano:

It looks like great fun, I’m sure you enjoyed yourself!

Keep up the hard work, you’re almost at the end of the school term. As we say in class, you can almost reach the holidays with your finger tips!

Keep Smiling,

Miss Adamson.

Danube Class Tuesday 31st March

Hi Class Danube,

I hope you’re all well and keeping busy.

Please find today’s video below:

If you would like to share your poems with me, I will look forward to reading them.

I’ve heard from lots of your parents that you are really enjoying maths activities in your home learning packs. I wonder if you can do this maths challenge:

I have been so impressed with the learning you are doing at home! Well done S for making your own skirt. It is amazing, I think you’re going to have to teach me to sew!

Well done to those of you that made the poster explaining who Samuel Morse is! I loved receiving some examples of your work:

Fantastic work Scarlett!
I love how eye-catching your poster is Eden!

Very impressed with poems and pairs of rhyming words some of you have been doing too! Both examples from year 1’s who are having a go at writing cursively! Wow!

And E had a brilliant go at ordering not only all her teddies but her sister’s teddies too:

You have measured them so accurately, well Done E!

Thank you so much for the lovely pictures of your activities! Keep up the hard work and please feel free to send pictures of your work to me. It’s great to share what you are all up to.

Have a lovely day and keep smiling,

Miss Adamson
