‘Pick n Mix’ Topic Homework

We have given the children ‘Pick n Mix’ Topic homework. We would like the children to complete at least 3 items from the list given, during each half term. We love seeing any topic work that the children have completed at home and encourage them to bring these in for show and tell.

Home Learning

Dear Parents,

Welcome back, I hope you had a lovely half term. As always, I will be uploading each week a home learning grid with activities for all curriculum areas. I will also be uploading English and Maths home learning work to accompany the online Maths and English pre recorded videos and their spellings are also attached under the home learning section. Please do remember to do a spelling test on Friday and practice these in joined up handwriting. 

This term our new topic is Beachcombers. We will be learning about the different sights, sounds and smells of the seashore and finding out about the living and non living things that live there. We will  learn about a wide range of coastal plants and creatures and We’ll read a range of seaside stories and use the coast as a setting for our writing. Maps and film footage will help us to find out more about the coast and we’ll create a wide variety of artwork. We’ll use books and the internet to search for information about the seashore and use our knowledge to write our own non-fiction books. At the end of the project, we’ll decide how we should look after the coastal environment and how the beach can be kept clean!  Thank you for all your hard work- I upload all your lovely work to the website as it so fantastic, so please remember to send me at least two pieces each week.

For our topic this term we took a trip to Windsor Castle! We learnt all about knights and their Armour, the different parts of a castle and what they were used for. We also got to look round the castle and see the Queen's dolls house. It was amazing!

We had a very messy morning this week. Our topic this term is Mess, Muck and Mixture. We did slime making, bubble painting, glitter bottles and lots more messy things!

This term we had a visit from Millers Arc. They performed the Nativity story to us using real animals. Then we learnt lost about all the animals and were allowed in the pen to stroke them. They were very friendly.

This term we have been learning all about our local area. We looked at the artist Stanley Spencer and visited the Stanley Spencer Gallery. We got to see his beautiful paintings of Cookham and then went on a walk around Cookham, visiting his house and the places he loved to paint!

This term we went to HMS Vicotry in Portsmouth. We found out lots about the different parts and uses of a ship. We even met a real pirate called Captain Bertie Bogie!
