Home Learning – January 2020
I am really sad to say that schools are having to close again to many children. We are very lucky that some us of will still be coming to school and those that are not will be able to complete their work from home. As we will not be re-opening until Monday the 11th for those children attending school we have decided to post some videos and some activities on here for you so that you can complete your tasks at home.
Miss Fox and Miss Fionda have both been reading lots of stories with their families over the holidays and have recorded a couple to share with you (see above) . I would like you to practise reading you favourite book with a member of your family. When you are reading make sure your words are clear and your audience can hear you. If the book is tricky to read or you would like to do a little bit more then you can act out different parts of the story and think about how the characters would be feeling.
In our Literacy we have been following a programme called Read Write Ink. Watch the video on the link below and write the sentence with the adult. If you are confident with this then try a new sentence.
We have focused a lot during the last term on counting and number patterns. Watch the videos that have been uploaded here and practise some of the following maths skills.
Find one more and one less than a given number. E.g. 16 – one more is 17 and one less is 15.
Find the number that comes between. E.g. What comes between 17 and 19.
Read and write teen numbers or numbers to 100 where possible.
Write numbers to 10/20 in words. E.g. 17 = seventeen
Counts in 1’s forwards and backwards from different starting points. E.g 19,18,17,16,15.
Watch Miss Henry’s physical activity video and see if you can complete some of her exciting and exhausting challenges.
Our science this term will be all about the human body. We would like you to spend some time practising naming the parts of the body, naming your senses, thinking about what each one does and considering how people are the same and how they are different.
We can’t wait to hear how much work you have completed at home! We will see some of you in school on Monday and the work will be provided for those of you who are working from home. Wishing you all a hard working week and a lovely weekend. See you soon.
Lets Celebrate Autumn 2
We have had an amazing and extremely busy Autumn term filled with lots of exciting learning, the children have amazed us with their hard work and we are very proud of them all. We hope you enjoy looking at all that we have achieved.
Our topic during this half term has been ‘Street Detectives’. We have focused on the area around us in South Bank and the people that live and work in the local area.
As part of our topic we researched the area using the iPads and google maps to find out what buildings could be found around our school. We then thought about what we know about each building before researching to find out more. Following this we used our AMAZING art and design skills to build our very own miniature South Bank. It seems we may have future architects and builders among us.
We didn’t stop there! We decided that the are could be improved by the addition of a new park so we set about making that too. Not only architects and builders but I think we may have the town planners of the future too.
We explored the local area further by thinking about the people who live and work in the area and the jobs that they do.
We have also done some FANTASTIC art work this term. We have worked with Miss Fox to explore different tools and techniques. We spent time practising before making our own art choices to develop our final shared product.
Spring 1 Learning
Our topic next term is going to be ‘Bounce’. We will focus on the human body, the importance of exercise and healthy eating. While doing this we will be working on developing our skills with IT and art in order to express our work. The children will also be focusing on significant individuals from the past who have significantly influenced sport.
If you would like to then you could start talking to your child about different forms of exercise and about which foods are healthy for their bodies.
· At home please encourage independence as much as possible—dressing/ fastening coat/ shoelaces
· Listen to your child read daily at home – please ask us if you would like us to send a book home with your child.
· Send your child in their PE kit every Friday (outdoor clothes and footwear)
· Due to COVID we are no longer communicating via home school books however each Monday we will send individual slips for you to send in with your child with any info or messages.
