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.
- Decorate an egg and send me a photo.
- Make an Easter card
- Cut up an egg box and make a chicken. You can find an example at:
- or make a chick in a way you would like - you could sew one or make one from a pompom for example
- Make a sock puppet rabbit. You can find an example at: https://www.allkidsnetwork.com/crafts/easter/sock-puppet-bunny.asp
- Read/watch the Easter story. You could use the following links or search online for your own:
- Make stick puppets and retell the Easter story to someone in your family.
- Topic project – look around outside and use the internet to research signs of spring. In your own way, present what you saw and learned – this could be through a PowerPoint presentation, art work, make your own book and write a spring fact-file, a video news report etc.
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.

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.
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.
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!
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
