Friday 27th March 2020

Good morning, how are we all doing today?  It's the last day of our first week of home learning and I'm hoping we are all still smiling to some degree laugh.


I joined in with Joe Wicks again today and am still very achy and even split my shorts doing sumo squats!!! Was that because I was doing them so well, or was that because my shorts were not up to it?  Who knows!  I've done lots of reading in the garden today - I'm reading two books at the same time: one which I chose from the library because I liked the look of it and one that my daughter has chosen to read from the library so that I can talk to her about it - she's reading at least one chapter a day.  I hope you are all finding a chance to do some reading when there's time. 


Today's Learning


Thinking back to yesterday's creative activity when you may have made up your own version of "We're Going on a Bear Hunt", I thought it would be nice if you could draw and write one page from the story.  So, either draw the front cover and give it a new title, such as "We are going on a Tiger Hunt" etc, or prepare one of the repeating pages that says "we are going on a Tiger Hunt, we are going to ........" , or write and draw the page when they discover what is being hunted and write the things that show it is the animal, such as "two beady eyes, stripey fur, huge sharp teeth... it's a tiger!!!!".  It's your choice.  If you like you can do more than one of the pages or if you really like drawing and writing, you might like to make a mini book of your story - the choice is yours.  I will be asking for one piece of work to be emailed to me each week and this is the piece that I would really like to see for this week.  I am really looking forward to seeing how you are getting on and to seeing what ideas you have.  We would usually share pieces like this with each other in the class, but as this is not possible, I will create a class gallery page so we can share what everyone has been doing there.   So show your parents how clever you are with your writing and have your sound mat and word mat out so you can look up sounds and words when you need to.  I'll put the Bear Hunt story link below again to help you.

Number Time

Have a look at the fifth lesson inspired by the Egg Hunt book.  There are lots of different ideas and activities that you can choose from and it is up to you how many or how few you choose to do.  Go for the ones that you like the look of the best and which look the most fun and doable for your household. 



PE Dave has posted his first sport skills session on his sport page and this week it is all about football skills.  Watch the video and then head to the garden and see how you get on.  Why don't you do it with a family member and see how your football skills compare to their's.  Happy footballing!



A Big Well Done

So that is the end of our first week of home learning.  I hope that you have enjoyed the activities posted on the site and you have tried your best.  If you have been learning any other things, do please get in touch and tell me all about them or send photos, I would love to know what you have been up to. Otherwise, I look forward to seeing your page from your own version of the Bear Hunt story and do have a good rest over the weekend. 


Love Mrs Mason
