Under normal circumstances, Wrens, Robins and Chaffinches would be singing a very special song at this time of the year. It has become almost a tradition to sing this Spring song in the weeks leading up to Easter. The children seem to love it and it brings a lot of smiles to many faces. We hope that this version will do the same!!!
We wish all of the children and their families a very happy and healthy Easter.
We miss you. xxx
P.S. If you want to sing along to the original, or some may say better version see below 🙂
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!
Before any work posts, I just wanted to share these photos of the cards that Robins made just before we closed. I have sent them to 2 different Residential Care homes, one in Dinnington and one slightly further afield in Mexborough. I think that you will agree they will certainly brighten up someone’s day. 🙂
Hopefully, you will all be enjoying the lovely sunshine. Remember it is the Easter holiday now, so take time to take a well-earned break. There is no expectation that you will be working over the Easter break, but here are a few ideas if you do want to keep busy.
In class we had started to learn how to tell the time – to O’clock and half past. What about making the most of the lovely weather and recreating this in your garden?
Remember that the hour hand goes half way between the numbers when it is half past the hour.
Easter Egg maths
This is a lovely game to play with a grown up. You could make your own counters (I would make little Easter eggs or dare I say it, use sweets!) If you can’t put your hand on any dice, try making your own spinner with a pencil and a paper clip. Good luck and happy adding!
A company called myON are currently offering free access to over 6000 digital books. I have had a look and the books cover many topics; ranging from animals and insects, to dinosaurs and drones. I think there is probably something for everyone and some of the books may help if you are doing a ‘project’ at home.
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!
For those that didn’t see this on GMB this morning, this fantastic resource is currently free. It matches the National Curriculum and Carol also mentioned that she is giving an adult’s maths class this afternoon online!
