Hope you had a good day on Monday.
How did you get on with our new theme for the day, ‘Make it Count Monday’? In our house we made sure we did something together at the end of the afternoon as a family and we enjoyed playing Junior Monopoly. This is one of my son’s favourite board games; he actually ended up winning!
If you’re finding the Joe Wicks workout a bit challenging or you fancy a change then perhaps visit the imoves website. On Thursday when I was in school we had a go at one of the activities and we really enjoyed it; it involved exercises using a chair as a piece of exercise equipment – simple but fun! At home with my family, we have also tried some of the GO Noodle routines – if you search these on YouTube you will find a wide choice, including our class favourites of: ‘Milkshake’ and ‘Popsico’.
Today’s theme for Tuesday is: ‘Take Me Away Tuesday’.
What is the farthest place you have ever travelled to?
If you haven’t travelled yet, then where would you like to visit one day?
You could research places on the internet or maybe you have an atlas at home – see if you can find out a few interesting facts about your place. Can you find it on an atlas? Tell an adult why you would like to visit there or if it is somewhere you’ve been to already explain why.
I have always wanted to visit South America, in particular Venezuela to see the Angel Falls. The Angel Falls is the highest waterfall in the world.
We would love to hear about your ideas.
If you are finding that we are putting too many activities on here to be completed in a day, we are more than happy for you to spread some of these out over a few days. For example; the learning theme project could be started in the holidays as there will be no other work set then. Also, the White Rose Maths is further maths for you to complete - you could just watch the daily videos as these are on average only about 8 minutes long and only if you have time then complete the accompanying tasks. Hope that helps.
Have a good day!
Mrs Ashby and Miss Barrett

- Visit Active learn website and select a maths and a SPAG activity to complete.
- ART –
Today, I would like you to open the document called, ‘Art lessons 2 to 6’ focus on the pages 9 to 14 on our resources page. We are learning how to draw texture. Read the information on page 9. Then on page 10 you will need to find objects with different textures – describe the feel of them.
Activity 1: Look at page 11. On a piece of paper – try and have a go at recreating the different textures using the techniques such as ‘hatching’.
Activity 2: Pages 12 and 13 show examples of different textures – see if you can identify what technique the artists have used using page 11 to help you. Then complete activity 2 which is explained on page 14. Either use one of the animal pictures on the document provided in the resources section of our class page or find an animal picture of your own. You could sketch one of your pets if you have one! Use either pencil or pencil crayons. Underneath your picture, write what techniques you tried to use.
I would love to see your creations, take a photo and send to the class email – we can put your examples up on our class page in the section called ‘Your Work’ which is in each week’s page.
Remember to build in some quiet time, creative time and outdoor time!
Have a good day!
