As the second half of the summer term begins, the weather seems to have taken a turn for the worse, but we are pleased to see this hasn’t dampened your spirits and you are all still keeping very busy – exploring outdoors, baking and raising money for charity, making slime and playing darts.
Your work ethic is commendable and it has been great to hear that many of you have enjoyed this week’s English and Maths activities. We think you should be particularly proud of your narrative poems as we have seen examples of rhyme, alliteration and similes! Take a look at this week’s photographs to read some of them for yourselves.
We hope you are enjoying the new summer topic ideas based around the ‘ Our Community’ theme. In school, the key worker children have been looking at images of landmarks and sketched the Angel of the North. We learned about different shading techniques, including a couple we hadn’t heard of before – stippling and scumbling. Maybe you could challenge yourself to have a go at these techniques when doing your sketches at home.
Watch out for next weeks English and Maths post on Monday and don’t forget to send us photographs of any activities you do. We really do enjoy looking at them.
Finally, we’d like to say a happy belated birthday to the two children who have turned 8 over the past couple of weeks. Thank you for sharing pictures of your special day and we hope you had a fabulous time celebrating.
Take care and keep smiling!
