Friday 3rd July

Friday 3rd July

Good Morning Everyone! If you aren't returning to school today, don't worry - you can find home learning here!

As always - please remember to just manage what you can and take things at your own pace. There is no expectation that you need to complete absolutely everything, everyday.

Good Morning! It's Friday - have you got that Friday feeling?!

Time to get active!

  • Join in with the daily mile and get fit!
  • You can find daily challenges on the website for the daily mile at home (example one to the right - but you can find up to date ones each morning)! https://thedailymile.co.uk/at-home/
  • Let us know how you get on :)

Writing

Your fact file should now be complete! As a treat, take a break today from writing. I know lots of you have found it challenging at times to keep writing at home, but you've done really well persevering with it.

Science Week

Since this week is Science Week, take your writing slot time to engage in some science at home! Why not try the Rocket Mice activity? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5PbABzvhxU&utm_source=Email&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_campaign=LCP%3APrimaryTeacherNews%2C23.06.20&utm_term=Wordfly&utm_content=version_A&promo=17929

Or try one of these suggested activities...

Reading, Phonics and Spelling

Today focus on reading a book. This can be a book you've got at home, a book from Collins Connect or another online e-book resource such as Oxford Owl. Try to select something at your level.

  • Read for 10 minutes, discussing new vocabulary you come across.
  • Can you spot tricky words or high frequency words?
  • Try to summarise what you've read by talking to an adult.
  • Get your adult to ask you some questions about what you've read. Remember to check out our reading page for additional support with this.


If you have time, spend time on Phonics Play or Spelling Shed too.

Maths

Reception

Can you make up your own subtraction number stories? Use the dragons in the picture.

Can you write number sentences to go with your story?

You might like to draw your story.

Year 1 and 2

You might find it helpful to colour in a scrap of paper in each colour, or write the names of the colours, and then move them around until you solve the problem. This is a good one for getting you thinking!

Spend time on TTRS once you've completed this.

Afternoon -Forest School

Can you create your own natural colour palette?

This time of year is perfect for finding a range of colours in the world around us.

Perhaps you could even try to create a rainbow colour palette, using items in your garden or local area. We'd love to see photos of the colours you find!

Mindfulness and Well-Being

Every day we will give you a suggested mindfulness or well-being activity. This is just an idea and is optional.

Today's suggestion links well to Forest School and is also a lovely Friday treat! Enjoy :)

Next week, you will find morning activities on the Virtual Classroom as normal.

Year 1 and Year 2, we will be putting your afternoon activities onto Class Dojo and trialling this platform. You will be asked to upload your afternoon activity onto your portfolio on Class Dojo so that your own class teacher can see it, give you feedback and maintain some contact with you. Of course, you're welcome to also put your morning work on there too, or you can send via email as normal.

Parents - We hope this will be a positive experience and will allow your child to maintain contact with their own class teacher.

Reception Class - Tapestry remains our main method of communication - but you're welcome to choose either Tapestry or Class Dojo. :)
