Home learning 23.3.20

Today is the start of something new for us all, I’m not sure how long it will last or if I’m honest how it will actually work. But for now this, along with Seesaw, is our classroom!

I’m so impressed with the fab things that have been posted on seesaw already, I have loved seeing a range of tasks, challenges and creative things! You definitely have fun at home. It’s a shame you can’t see what each other has been doing but I will keep posting updates on here…

Being at home will obviously not be like being in school but please set aside some time to practice some spellings, times tables and read.

TODAY’S CHALLENGES

  1. A great way to start your day is with Joe Wicks’s 30 minute PE session. It will be happening on his YouTube channel everyday at 9am. 
    It will certainly wake you up ready for the day of learning ahead! Just type “the body coach” into YouTube and his channel will appear.
  2. Please choose a short novel to read (we are using the twits) to complete activities on over the next few weeks. Your first activity is to describe a character from the story, post your description on seesaw and I will see if I can guess the character and the book. I’ll share some on here for us all to guess as well.

Keep posting things in the home learning folder and let’s cover our blog in things to be proud of!

PARENTS – if anyone is struggling to work seesaw please email me and I will try to send you an email with details of a video tutorial. Thanks

Reading Week

Last week everyone was busy with all things reading.
Every class completed work linked to the text ‘the day the crayons quit’, we dressed as crayons, held reading breakfasts and had a visit from a published author. It was certainly a fun filled week!!

Here is class 3’s altered version of the story – the text message version!

and a display of some of our fab work….

More photos of the different events can be found on the main website…

Film Stars!

In the first week back after half term, class 3 took part in a filming activity to star in a promotional video for the school library service. We had great fun being filmed during our normal lessons and also being interviewed about reading. We can’t wait to see the finished video!!

For some photos of the film taking place, check out the link on the main school website…

Dare to Dream

This week we have had our second ‘Dare to Dream’ theme week. Our focus has been Global jobs and we have had lots of fun finding out about different jobs and the countries they originate from.

The highlight of the week had to be today when we spoke to Mrs Holland’s son David who works in Sweden for EA games. We actually spoke to him on Skype while he was at work in Stockholm! He was working on a new computer game!!!

Afterwards we were so inspired by his work that we had a go at sketching our own spaceship designs!

Next week we hope to hear from some more people with Global jobs. I wonder if we would like to work abroad one day?
