LEARNING AT HOME PHOTOS 

So we have made it to the final week of term and the theme this week is Summer Fun Time. 

 

You have been working so hard over the last term and a bit and I am incredibly proud of you all. Planning your work and seeing the results has brought me tremendous pleasure in these strange times when we haven’t been able to be together as normal. I have loved sharing your work and activities on this class page and with Mrs Lindley.  I also know that these past weeks have been tough for you and your parents and carers.  I thank you all for being brave and working hard; and your parents and carers for the great juggling act that they have had to take on in order to teach and care for you full time on top of everything else they have to do. THANK YOU ALL!

 

Remember to have some fun this week and over the summer.

Keep safe

Mrs Lamb

Make a Lockdown Time Capsule

Create a ‘Lockdown Time Capsule’ to store away for the future or bury in your garden. There are many things you could include; below are some ideas and a link for some printable sheets:

  • A letter to whoever opens your capsule.
  • A newspaper clipping or print a news article from the Internet.
  • Drawings or photos.
  • Evidence of games or activities you did as a family.
  • Some diary entries.
  • A record of any special memories (for example: Clap for Carers).
  • Handprint or tracing of everyone in the family
  • A 2020 dated coin.
  • A couple of bits of clean toilet paper and a hand wipe (reminding you of how people were panic buying)

 

Gather everything together and place safely in a shoebox or something similar. You could also create a map and a set of instructions for whoever 'digs up' the capsule in the future.

The Oak National Academy are providing free daily online video lessons for children.  I would like you to have a go at the Maths for Reception (FS2).  This weeks set of lessons are all about grouping and sharing.   You may also wish to access last weeks ;  all about numbers within 10.  Please don't feel you have to complete every lesson; be guided by your child and their capabilities.  I'd love to know how you get on and whether the children are engaging in and enjoying the online lessons.
