It has been a great week in school, being able to welcome children and adults back through the gates. Hopefully it will not be too long before we get everyone back in safely.
It has been great to hear about all of the ways you are giving yourselves and your children fantastic experiences at home during this unusual time. The memories you are creating will last a lifetime and it is so good to hear how each of you are choosing to create these differently.
For those of you using the website for ideas on the weekly theme, we are looking at Kings and Queens.
Today, if you wanted, you could try to make yourself a model of Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s home.
- Will you make a 2d or 3d model?
- What will you make your model out of?
- What shapes would you need?
- How many of each shape would you need?
- How would you make them?
This weeks maths and reading focus is below.
The Maths focus for this week is keeping ourselves in practice with our calculation skills. I’ve put a copy of a set of questions you can be talking through together here. 2018 calculation and a picture of all of the tools, models and strategies the children have learned to use so they can remind themselves of what they can do.
Please don’t use this like a test, sit and talk it though together, ask them what they know, what they can remember, what models they would use. Remember mistakes are the best way to learn so let these happen and then talk about why they happened afterwards and what could be done differently.
The Bugclub website has had a bit of maintenance so you may need to relog in again. If anyone has any problems with this, please let me know and I will give you a phone call to sort it out. Reading is the most important thing to be doing together, so please make sure that you are doing this as much as possible.
Take care, be safe and stay happy.
All the best
