Happy home learning – all about the emoji ❤️😊👍🏽
The ‘Design your own Emoji’ task has been very popular today! We love all your ideas and have also enjoyed hearing from lots of people, seeing photos and keeping in touch via email. Keep sending us your messages, photos and videos. Remember though, looking after your health and emotional well being is the most important thing at this time. Any missed learning can be caught up on at school when all this is over. We miss you all and hope to see you soon.
Free access to NumBots (part of Times Table Rockstars)
Before schools closed, each child was given a username and password to access Times Table Rockstars. This is useful for Year 2 children in particular, but there is also NumBots which is for improving addition and subtraction skills. They are both worth a look. If you have lost your username/password, email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be able to get it for you.
Making fruit salad
Great to see the reading activity and challenge being done today – making your own fruit salad. Looks delicious!
Home learning help – BBC and White Rose
The BBC Bitesize Daily lessons and resources are also excellent. You can watch them on your tv, tablet or laptop. There is the menu below. We also use White Rose to aid our maths planning in school and they have lots of resources too https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/.
Five Star Sports LIVE sessions
Five Star Sports regularly come into school to deliver fabulous sporty sessions. They are running some LIVE sessions on Facebook for you to join in with. There is a Monday session for younger children and Saturday morning football sessions. Join in and keep active with them.
Art is a great way to relax and pass the time. One of the Year 2 children has really been enjoying drawing so he decided to do his own version of an Art Attack.
He has watched lots of videos on YouTube which explained how to draw cartoon characters and 3D objects. He then drew his own creations.
He has enjoyed making the pictures colourful and then selected his favourites for the poster below. Super!
Dancing with ‘Hello HipHop’
Some classes have had a few sessions delivered by Phil from Hello HipHop recently. We also had them booked in to deliver sessions for the whole school during Health Week. We will have to reschedule the sessions for the future but in the meantime, here are some hip hop moves for you to work on. Enjoy!
Keeping your memory fit!
As well as keeping your body active, it is a good idea to keep your brain active too. Using your memory is a good way to do this. Memorising a poem, song or short story is an easy, fun way to do this at home. It was one of our home learning tasks recently. Here is a poetry performance in the sunshine.
WUSU – Shout Out To My Ex
Miss Parling and I did a video chat earlier and we danced to one our favourite WUSU songs. The audio is not the best but we hope you still join in and enjoy it !
We are loving hearing about all the amazing things you’re doing at home. Doing some art, dance, cooking, gardening and music all help us to feel a bit better at this tricky time. This put a huge smile on my face this morning – a great song! ‘Song 2’ by Blur : singing and drums by one of our Year 2 children accompanied by his dad on guitar. Amazing!
