We are finishing our seventh week of home learning. We did a fantastic job as usual. Have a look at what we have done.
To broaden our knowledge of literacy we used Oxford Owl and read a book of our choice aloud with the excellent expression. Then we answered blooms questions.
We were practising our spelling words in pyramid writing. Then we logged into Sumdog and completed the spelling challenge set.
Also, we created poems about Spring, using our senses.
In addition, we were practising our handwriting by writing our addresses.
Knowing how to add numbers is a very important life skill. So for maths, we revised addition by playing games, filling worksheets and completing the Sumdog challenges the teachers had set for us.
Que clima hace hoy? What is the weather today? In Spanish, we were learning about weather vocabulary. It is good to know other languages.
We did research online about living creatures that live in our local Union Canal.
Capturing spring on a piece of paper may not be easy for everyone but for our young artistic minds it was ‘easy peasy lemon squeezy’.
May is the month of Mary so we discussed with members of our families why we honour Mary so much. As well as that we watched videos from the Bible Beginners channel on YouTube.
‘Who we are and what we are good at is not fixed.’ All of us are unique and we all have different talents but that does not mean that we cannot get better at things. We looked back at all the skills we have learnt since the time we were born.
Here is what some of our pupils said:
‘I did my missing numbers within 50 without a chart!!’
‘Still loving my sum’s more than writing but love learning different subjects’
‘Working hard in my writing, I think you will be impressed with the amount I have written and how many WOW words I’ve used during home school’
