This week (W/C 13.7.2020) our topic is going to be ‘nature and our environment’. All the children I teach know how passionate I am about being outside and exploring our local surroundings. Children are naturally inquisitive about the environment around them and hence learn so much from their experiences. We do not have to move far before we come across nature. In this busy world, often we miss the beauty that is all around us. So, this week I have pulled together some fun tasks that you and your family can really enjoy. As like all weeks, pull out the activities that suit the age of your child. Have fun! Mr McDougall
This week’s (6.7.2020) learning project focuses on supporting your child with transitioning to their new class, or being an older member of their existing class. . Please see your Class pages for more information and activities.
MONSTERS AND ALIENS WEEK - 29/6/2020
With this each class having the theme of Space, we thought we would choose something that is a little different or 'out of this world'
Below is an activity grid which will give you some ideas on the kinds of tasks your children can complete. There are also some pictures and documents to help support.
You may have your own ideas for Monsters and Aliens week – feel free to do something different but please send any work into firstname.lastname@example.org and I will start a gallery which I will be 'over the moon with!'
