Friday 10th July
Dear Class R parents and carers,
All of you and your children have had another wonderful week. I have continued to be incredibly impressed with the level of engagement from everyone. All the children should feel incredibly proud of themselves.
I can safely say that many of the children in school have become noticeably more tired over the past week or so and I can imagine the children at home are beginning to feel very tired too; as are all of us. We have all been through an extremely unusual term and I don't know what the summer vacation will look like or equally how things will continue to change over the coming months. Lets finish the school year strong and head off into the Summer vacation as positively as possible and with fingers firmly crossed for some normality returning by the time school reopens in September.
Please note that over the next few days all the children should be receiving a letter from Ms Osman. Following this will be a video of her reading a story. Mrs Wyman and I spent several hours with her yesterday and we really enjoyed meeting her. I am sure the children will love having her as their teacher in September.
For today's work I would like the children to begin by writing a postcard from baby bear to Mummy bear. What did baby bear see on his journey? What would you choose to include in the postcard detailing a trip to the moon? I have attached a postcard template below if the children need to see an idea of what a postcard looks like.
Following this I would like the children to have a think about Baby Bears picnic for the moon. What types of food could he have in his picnic? Can the children come up with a space themed list e.g. Moon Muffins, raspberry rockets etc. Can they draw a picture and label their foods?
After this I would like the children to have a go at the following game 'Numbers to words - Fruit Splat' http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/math/early-math/number-words-fruit-splat-game/ This game involves the children reading the word and trying to match it to the number. Unfortunately this is one of those games with adverts floating around the bottom of the screen so please make sure you are nearby whilst your child is using this game as it is easy to end up accidentally clicking on these adds.
Next could the children try the 2do Counting down within 100. Please make sure that your child pays attention to the question as this is one of those that it is possible to get muddled up on.
After this I would like the children to watch the attached video of the story 'Hedgehugs', this follows on from our story the other day about social distancing and how hedgehogs come up with an unusual way of hugging.
After watching this I would like the children to have a go at hugging someone important to them but can they make it as creative a hug as possible ? 😊
Please look out for Mrs Benney's challenge too.
