Good morning Sycamore! Welcome to Topic Tuesday!
Wow! Wasn’t it great to yesterday to see how much money Joe Wicks has raised for the NHS so far! Well done to all of you who have been joining in with his workouts, because you have helped to raise this fabulous amount! I hope that you enjoy today’s work out with him: (TheBodyCoachTV on YouTube)
Remember to try to spend a bit of time every day on these following activities:
Today, we’re going to spend some more time thinking more about the months of the year! You’re going to need to gather some information for today’s task, because I would like you to make your very own calendar for recording the birthdays of family and loved ones! This will help you to make sure you never forget a family member’s birthday again!
Firstly, you will need to gather together information about when different members of your family have their birthdays. Begin by writing a list of the people you wish to include on your calendar. Then start to collect together the information about which month and the date their birthday is in.
Then you can be creative! I have often seen examples of family birthday calendars at craft fairs. You will need to have each month of the year recorded on your calendar and then space or a way that you will record the name and date of people’s birthdays.
Here is an example of a very lovely one I have seen on line. I have also included a printable version if you would prefer to use that.
I hope you have a lovely time, making your very own calendar to remember the birthdays for the special people in your lives.
As it is the start of a new term, it is also the time we begin a new Learning Theme!
So, Tuesdays this term will be ‘Topic Tuesdays’!
Our Topic this term will be all about
our wonderful Norfolk Broads!
Today, for English I would like you to write about your favourite Norfolk Broad. Which do you like to visit? Why? What wildlife do you see when you visit? Are there other attractions to enjoy when you visit this Broad?
Add some lovely illustrations too once you have finished.
Often, at the start of many of our new topics, we spend some time using a table to help us to think carefully about what we already know and what we want to find out as we go on our learning journey.
So, today, please carefully divide a new page in your book in half (remember how we do it in class, by either folding up to the margin neatly or by measuring, using a ruler to find half of the writing space and then drawing a vertical line down the page).
For one column, the heading is: ‘What I know about the Norfolk Broads’. For the other column, the heading is: ‘What I want to find out about the Norfolk Broads’.
Then, carefully write into the columns your ideas about what you know and questions about what you want to find out! You might want to use different colour pencils or pens for each idea to make your page lovely and interesting to read!
Looking forward to seeing your fabulous work
Looking forward to seeing all your great work from today!
Have a good day :-)
