    Writing

    This week’s learning is going to be based around the clip that is linked below. Please watch the clip of the Little Shoe Maker.

    https://www.literacyshed.com/littleshoemaker.html

    After watching the video clip, think about the shoemaker and the shop. Can you draw a picture of both and make a bank of words to describe them?

    • You could use your adjectives (describing words) to create some expanded noun phrases.

    Reading

    This week we are continuing with the super six skill of visualising. Can you or you grown up choose a song to listen to? While listening to the song can you write/draw some ideas about the song. What sounds can you hear? What words/phrases are in the song? Is it a happy, sad, excited song?

    Maths

    This week we are looking at 3D shapes. Today we are going to hunt around the house/outdoor area for a range of 3D shapes.

    Blue- Can you find different shapes around the house?
    Yellow- Can you find a range of different 3D shapes around the house and name them?
    Red- Can you find a range of different 3D shapes and record these in a table?

    3D shapes could include…
    -Cube
    -Sphere
    -Cuboid
    -Cone
    -Pyramid

    Topic

    Todays topic learning is R.E. Today we would like you to pick a Bible story. You could find one in your Bible at home, a video on you tube or on BBC Bite size. Can you retell the Bible story in your own way? This could be creating your own story book, a comic strip, through drama or even making a model!

    Hi Everyone,

    I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the sunshine! I have been loving the sunshine over the past few weeks. I feel very lucky as I have been able to explore the area I live in with my children. We have found lots of amazing new spaces. We have enjoyed climbing trees, finding bugs and running through fields filled with buttercups.

    We have also been busy in our garden, weeding plants and we have even planted some sweet peas and sunflowers. Something else that we have loved doing in our garden is reading stories in the shade. I wonder if any of you could read your favourite stories outside?

    If you are going for walks this week maybe you would like to see if you can go on a colour hunt and collect things or take pictures of things which are your favourite colour.

    I hope you all continue to keep safe and happy and we look forward to seeing you all soon!

    Mrs Walker

    Today in school we used a saw to cut up a branch into lots of discs and then we used a hand drill to make holes in the discs. We created bright, colourful windmills to hang from the trees and tried to decorate them with lots of different insects.
