This was the last week of home learning, with all children returning to school next Monday. World Book Day was on Thursday, so many of the activities this week were linked to reading. There were three live sessions with authors, when the children were able to listen to some stories and also follow some instructions to draw some illustrations in a similar style to those used in their books. Here are some photos of the drawings and children listening to the sessions.
One of the tasks set for the Robins this week was to create a poster of their favourite book, which could be displayed in a book shop. Here are some photos of these super posters.
The whole school was set a reading challenge this week. This was to become a ‘story reading star’, by reading in lots of different places. The children had to tick the star challenges, as shown below, and send in four photographs as evidence to show where they were reading. Here is a selection of the great photos I received.
In addition to reading activities, the Robins enjoyed beginning their new Maths unit, which focused on recognising 2D and 3D shapes, identifying their properties and drawing them. Here are some photos.
Here are some further photos, which are showing other pieces of work: French – weather, Science – space, Topic: Kenya – Going to School, Phonics, Handwriting, Spellings, Art lesson, Geography – map with a compass and Imogen’s lovely poster to say thank you to the NHS.
Finally, here are some photos of Mason enjoying being outside in the woods, making a den and having fun.
On World Book Day, there was a whole school costume / book scene competition. There was a winner for each class and this was announced in the Celebration Assembly on Friday. There were some great entries and each entrant will receive a special certificate. There is a separate blog with a gallery of photos of the Robins in their costumes, or showing their book scene.
It will be great to be back in the classroom from Monday 8th March and I am looking forward to welcoming all the Robins back, so that we can share our learning together.
