Good Morning all of you and welcome to week 2 of home school.
I hope you had an enjoyable weekend and, although it was chilly, managed to get out in your garden still. Saturday was our trickiest day so far. We didn't make a plan of the day, so didn't get out much and spent far too long on screens. As a result, we were a very grumpy household by tea time so we had a chat about it and made a bit of a plan for Sunday which included much more outside time.
There are lots of positive effects of being outside and I would lile you to try and plan in time to be outside. Wrap up with an extra layer or two and go out. I have attached an idea (See Birds P1,2,3) for you from a book I am reading called Create your own Happy (by Penny Alexander and Becky Goddard-Hill)
How are your garden circuits/obstacles going? What garden equipment have you managed to include in your circuits? Toby made up a game called Pole Ball last week which was a cross between football and hockey (I think!) He mostly enjoyed telling us all of the rules he had made up!! It got us all up and moving though.
Ideas for this week
Maths:This week keep working on telling the time on the clocks in your houses but we will also switch to learning about angles and come back to time next week.
Task- have a look at the angle eater attachment and either print it out or make your own by drawing around a tin from the cupboard. Cut carefully along the lines. Can you use it to find all the right angles inside and outside your house?
Geography: If you found out about or made a volcano last week, then you could create an art collage about rivers this week (or vice versa) See attachments about rivers on the Goldfinch class page. BBC I-player Planet Earth Fresh Water is a good programme to watch. and try this site: http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/rivers.html
Amelie and Lola did the next part of their river art- and might do the rest this week.
Step 1 do the sea and sky step 2 do the mountains
Step 3 layer the fields and hills Step 4 add the rivers which is our job for this week....
Parents- you are doing such an amazing job. Please, please don't put pressure on yourselves or your children to try and complete everything all in one go. These are just suggestions of some activities that I have tried out on my 3 to keep them occupied.
You are all fabulous... Have a lovely day and more from me tomorrow
Mrs Evans (with a big hello too from Mrs Brennan and Mrs O'Marah)
Message from Mrs Powell
“With the new day come new thoughts and new strengths.”
Dear children, This is now your second week, you have shown how great you are, what will you do today, how do you show how clever and strong you are each day?
