A parent or carer will need to sign up but it’s all free. You will recognise several of the authors from our Reading Spine. If nothing else, it is fun to put faces to names and to find out a little more about some of our favourite writers.
Let’s practise our counting and colours in French. Join in and then have a go at playing the game at the end. See if you can teach your grown up and try and catch them out. Bonne chance!
I am also attaching another song that that we have been learning together at school – the french version of Hokey Cokey. Apologies in advance adults, it’s one of those songs that sticks and can be quite annoying – haha!
I have just received this email from Grimm & CO. They are a team of creative, wonderful writers and illustrators who enjoy unleashing children’s passion for writing. Please share with your aspiring little writers.
Dear Mrs Farrimond,
I wanted to bring your attention to our distance learning provision here at Grimm & Co. We are in the process of launching a range of activities for children and young people while they are at home, during this time.
All of the resources can be found on the Activities tab on our website here and we will of course be posting them on social media platforms.
These sessions range from short-burst weekly exercises to longer writing projects. Alongside these activities, we will provide step-by-step instructions and videos to aid the session. This provision is free for all. We will add activities every week so keep checking in with us.
We would love it if you could pass this on to parents/carers in your community.
When you’ve read a few pages or a chapter of your book, try and act out a scene (part of what you’ve read) by playing one of the characters in your book.
And/or try to go on a Book Scavenger Hunt.
I’ve had a very quiet few weeks, conserving my energy after all of my adventures with you.
Today has been the first day that I’ve done something energetic: I took part in Greenlands’ marathon. I only managed to run 100m, but it helped.
Once I’d finished my run I tried to snooze in Alfie’s bed (see photo), but he just wanted to play.
I am really tired now but looking forward to my tea later – I’m having pizza, which is one of my favourite meals, as you know. I’m then going to read the next chapter in my book, ‘The penguin who wanted to find out.’ I can’t wait to find out what Otto gets up to next!
Tomorrow, we’re going to play Monopoly – I hope to win!
I will write to you all again soon, Chaffinches. Please keep safe and healthy.
The White Rose Maths Team have prepared a series of five maths lessons for each year group from EYFS to Y6. They will be adding five more each week for the next few weeks. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you how to help your child complete the activity successfully.
This is a fantastic coding resource that you can easily follow at home. You’ll need to open Scratch on your web browser and search for Code Playground Live on You Tube. It can be done on a PC or a tablet and the instructions are simple to follow. There are lots of different coding activities for you to try. I’ve linked one of the examples below but there are lots more.
There are some fantastic, practical ideas here for developing children’s science, technology, engineering and maths skills. The first four are aimed at children aged between 5 and 7; the others are for KS2 children. However, feel free to go with what interests you! If you click on the links, you will find a wide range of excellent linked resources.
Bonjour! I hope that you are all well. A few children have asked if we can carry on practising our French together – what a great idea! So here’s a short video with one of the rhymes that we have been learning, plus a new one too!
I am also attaching one of our favourite songs which is also suitable for older children. Adults can join in too!
