Learning Together at Home 25.3.20

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Just a reminder that BLOG POSTS go live on the school website at noon (12.00 lunchtime) each day and that these tasks are to be spread over that afternoon and if necessary the next morning. Pace yourself with the tasks and remember there is also Newsround to watch if you like. Joe Wicks has a great workout everyday at 9am which is saved on his YouTube page to do whenever you like  . . .

As today is Wednesday! It is Literature Circle day and so make sure you have completed a task based on the reading you have done since last Wednesday. You should all have your Literature Circle task booklet and reading book. If you have forgotten it, lost it, left it somewhere or if your dog has eaten it then please do not worry. Just use a different book.

I will put a link to the Literature Circle booklet we use here in case you have misplaced your copy. Then just do the task in your Literacy jotter if need be.

If you have managed to create a Snakes and Ladders game then why not try sending a photo on Microsoft Teams chat. Would be wonderful to see what you created. Do NOT worry if you cannot do this.

It is important to take time for ourselves at the moment to relax and unwind. This can sometimes mean quiet time where we focus our minds on something. Have a look at this YouTube clip and see if you can follow the instructions and draw an ice cream cone. There are other videos to choose from also.
