Welcome to our January blog. Due to the National Lockdown, our class has moved to the world of remote learning and I must say, it has been one journey and a half so far! The children have coped incredibly well and because of these unprecedented times, pictures of the children hard at work will not be possible. However, I would love to share with you examples of the children's work which they have completed at home. Sit back and enjoy.
In English, the story which we have been focusing on is The Enormous Crocodile. The feature learning focus for this month's blog is common exception words. The children were asked to select a variety of different common exception words and incorporate these into their writing for The Enormous Crocodile's secret plans and clever tricks.
In Maths, we have been looking at 2d and 3d shapes. After learning the names and properties for each shape, the children went on a shape hunt to find everyday objects which are 2d and 3d.
In RE, we have been looking at the power of saying thank you. We carefully read the gospel ‘Jesus heals ten lepers’ and discussed how Jesus felt when nine of the ten lepers didn’t say thank you and just ran off when they were healed. The one leper who stayed showed wonderful gratitude toward Jesus and this is something Jesus appreciated greatly. This allowed the children to then explain why saying something so easy as ‘thank you’ can really show respect and gratitude towards others.
In SPAG, the children have been given a variety of SPAG activities to complete. This varies from conjunctions, apostrophes, punctuation, and a variety of other skills.
That is it, for now, folks, we hope you enjoyed our January remote learning blog and we look forward to seeing you again in February.
