Rabbit Class

Week commencing: 6/4/2020

Hello everyone! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful work that you sent to me last week! I really enjoyed looking at what you’ve been up to and am so proud of the work that you’ve all been producing! I’m missing being in school with you all but am glad that you’re all keeping safe!

This week, I haven’t set the normal learning work as it is the “Easter holiday.” Instead, I have suggested some Easter and Spring activity ideas that you could do at home (these are optional tasks). Also, don’t forget to use the reading homework slips in your reading record to support the development of your reading skills!

The following activities are for the two weeks and I will post some more learning tasks the week commencing: 20/4/2020

 

Extreme reading challenge:

  • Take a photo of you reading in an unusual place. If you email these to me, I can put them in a folder on the Rabbit Class page so that you can see each other’s unusual places.
  • Write a short book review of your favourite book.  Remember to include information such as title, author, what the story is about, what your favourite part is and why.

Look at all the amazing things you have been up to in the last couple of weeks!

Well done to all of you who have been accessing your learning online and have been working hard.  You are all amazing.  It's also great to see so many of you learning new skills with your family like baking and art.

Your pictures have definitely been brightening my days - thank you for sharing them with me.  Here is just a selection for you all.

Stay safe.  Love Mrs Beesley x

Don't forget, I will be posting some activities that you might like to do over the Easter holiday period on Monday.

Week commencing: 30/3/2020

*Please note: Next Monday, we will be posting some activities that you might like to do over the Easter holiday period.

 

 Maths:

This weeks focus continues to be multiplication and division, so don't forget to keep counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, as well as to 100 forwards and backwards.  There's also an activity involving money, as children need to be able to recognise the value of coins.

Please complete the following two tasks during the week.

  • Education City - My City 30.3.20 - multiplication and division
    • Caring is sharing (learning screen)
  • It would also be great if you could also practise sharing objects practically, for example between family members or toys.  This should be focused on sharing groups of 2, 5 and 10  

 

  • Money
  • Use the coins you have at home (real or play) and talk about the value of each coin.  If you are using real coins you might want to give them a wash first.  Set up a 'shop' and price objects that children can buy and sell.  Don't try to make it complicated, price things to match one coin e.g. 20p, 5p, 2p, 50p etc.  The children loved playing in the toy shop role play area, so just have a lot of fun with it. 

 

Remember that you can access Numbots for free through your TTRockstars login for further fun maths games.

 This week we will focus on coding as part of the computing curriculum.  There is a series of video tutorials you can watch to help, followed by a couple of activities/games.  There is also a challenge (should you wish to accept it) for you to make your own simple game if you like.  They are a lot of fun and I know you will enjoy them.

Don't forget to stay fit and healthy.  As you probably know, Joe Wickes, the Body Coach, is offering free PE sessions on his You Tube channel.  Another favourite is Cosmic Kids Yoga: https://www.cosmickids.com/

This is a site the children are used to as we have used it several times in school.  It's a lot of fun, provides yoga sessions through story telling and is great for mental health as well as physical.

Rabbit Class

Spring 2 - Terrific Toys

 

As part of our topic learning about toys, we visited Sudbury Hall Museum of Childhood.  Here we took part in a workshop to identify which toys would have been played with by our grandparents, our parents and us.  We also looked at and played with a variety of toys from the past while exploring the museum.  One of our favourite parts was the chance to climb the chimney.  We had a really memorable day and learned a lot about toys from the past.

Rabbit Class

Spring 1 - The Enchanted Forest

This half term we have been learning about plants.  We held an outdoor topic day to enhance and consolidate our learning.  It was great fun!

We looked for signs of Spring, measured trees, took bark rubbings and cleared our outdoor learning area ready for planting.  We also made some grass seed heads.

Rabbit Class

Autumn 2 - The Enormous Crocodile

This half term, we have been learning about animals.  As part of our topic, we examined animal 'poo' to discover which animals were herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.  It was really interesting!

Rabbit Class

Autumn 1 - Wonderful Weather

We had great fun exploring ice.  Our challenge was to find ways to release objects that were trapped in the ice.  We found ways to warm the ice up to melt it and we were all successful!

As part of our science lessons, we explored a variety of materials.  We sorted them in different ways, we described their properties and investigated metals and magnets.  We also tested materials to see if they were waterproof so that we could mend Mrs Beesley's torn umbrella!

We learned a song about the weather and sang it as a two part round.  Aren't we amazing!

We had fun creating weather collages and sun catchers

We worked together to make rain gauges to measure rainfall

 

Wind Streamers and Weather forecasts

We had fun exploring numbers
