CLASS 2, YOU ARE AMAZING!! A HUGE well done for making it to the summer holidays and for a fantastic year, even though things have been a bit different. 

 

This week is TRANSITION WEEK! 

You may choose still to complete the maths and literacy, which has been uploaded as normal. The topic ideas and projects are also still on the website if you fancy some fun little extras. This week we ask that you complete the below transition activities to help you prepare for September. Please make sure you send these to myself or Mrs Price so that we can get them to Mr Beale (or me!) in preparation for returning to school. 

 

Don't forget to keep reading this week and over the summer too!

Topic

w/c 29th June:

Last week was School Diversity Week and this week it is Children’s Art Week so we thought we would celebrate the two together. Your topic work is based on diversity, similarities and differences. Remember it is these differences that make us all so special! As well as your self-portrait art work it would be amazing if you could create your own piece of art work to show what diversity means to you or what you have found out this week. We have added some play dough mats and a recipe for non-cook play dough that you could make at home! You could also make a ‘guess who’ style game and add your own characters – make sure they are all different so the game isn’t too easy. There is a template to write a poem on what makes you special and one to compare yourself to one of your friends, we don’t always like the same things and that is okay! We have also added a link to the song ‘I Have a Song to Sing’ which you might remember from our assemblies.

 

Parents - We know that talking to your children about these subjects can sometimes be difficult so we have also added a link below to the Unicef website where there is some great advice for parents on how to talk about diversity and racism.

Practical Project ideas for KS1:

  • Look at the food in your cupboards and see which food contains palm oil.
  • Research another country or place in the world and create a poster about it.
  • Make a model (out of junk/lego/toys) and then write a set of instructions so that your friends could make another model just like yours too.
  • Write a diary about what you are doing every day.
  • Create a hand wash poster.
  • Cooking with your family.
  • Explore some artists online and create your own art in their style.
  • Cosmic Yoga https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga
  • Throwing/catching a ball outside.
  • Write a story.
  • Write a book review.
  • Label things around your house with phonics.
  • Go on a nature hunt.
  • Make a picture for an older person near your house.  
  • Write a letter to a neighbour about what you are doing.
  • Create your own dance routine.
  • Make a den using towels, sheets or pillows.
  • Send Miss Goodchild/Miss Kethro some pictures of what you are doing.
