We have already had a busy start to this term. Here are all the fabulous activities we have been getting up to.
Our main theme this half term is all about the wonders of Ancient Egypt. We are going to be taking on the role of archeologists in history to discover the treasures left in the pyramids and investigate what they teach us about how ancient Egyptians lived.
In our writing lessons, we will be historians, documenting our findings and knowledge in a non-chronological report.
SNOW DAY ACTIVITIES
Snow Days offer a wonderful opportunity for the children to get outside and be physically active whilst exploring this beautiful and interesting weather phenomenon in all sorts of ways; as scientists, as artists, as geographers ...and as children.
As teachers, we have made the decision to embrace this as a wonderful opportunity for home learning when the children cannot safely come into school. Please find below, all sorts of ideas for learning activities that the children can do which are linked to the snow.
We have decided not to organise these under age-related headings. All of the activities are good fun and most are 'open-ended' enough that the children can explore them at the level which suits them.
The children now have homework packs. These will be sent home on a Tuesday and need to be handed in the following Monday.
Spellings will be taught on a Monday and tested on a Friday.
