Hello Beech Class!
Well done for another super week of home learning! It’s so lovely to see all of your hard work being emailed over. I am so proud of all of your hard work. I can’t wait for us all to be back at school together and for you to all be able to share your new skills with one another! I wanted to share with you a super recipe from one of our brilliant Beech Class Chefs!
Foundation and Maths
8th May is a special day, it is the 75th Anniversary of VE day. On this day the whole country will be celebrating. I have added two videos which you might like to watch about VE day. The first is from an online History teacher, it gives you lots of information about VE day. The second video shows you some old footage and photographs from the time around VE day.
When the Second World War finished people celebrated with street parties. They prepared food and joined with their neighbours to have a party. At the moment we can’t have a party with our neighbours in quite the same way, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VE day. We are so lucky to have brilliant technology and even though you can’t have a street party with family, friend and neighbours, you could have your own with your family in your home and video call people who are special to you so that they can join in with your celebrations.
This week I’d like you to celebrate! You could use your creative skills to make Union flag bunting, you could make a medal to celebrate the soldiers who served in World War Two or you could design some party table wear.
To develop your measuring skills, it would be great for you to plan and prepare some foods for your very own VE day party. You could bake cakes or bread, you could make sandwiches and weigh out the ingredients for your filling. Check out Mrs Kyne’s cooking page for some inspiration!
If you and your family decide not to do some cooking or baking this week, you could use some jugs and water to explore capacity- maybe even in the bath or outside if the sun is shining!
I would like you to think about your measuring, did you need more flour or more sugar? Which container did you fill with the most water? Can you order three containers based on how full each of them is? Is the container full, almost full, half full, almost empty or empty?
Keeping fit and healthy
You may have already seen Mr Tull’s challenge of getting a tea bag into a cup with your foot. Have you had a go? I wonder if you could create your own trick-shot challenge?
One of your friends has found a fantastic science and building challenge being run by the National History Museum and LEGO. It looks like great fun and will be a great way for you to think about what you know about animals and their habitats. Let me how you get on!
This week I would like you to think about your tricky words. (I, no, to, go, the)
I would like you to search for these in your books at home and practice writing them in your beige handwriting book.
To challenge yourself you could use these words in sentences- maybe even sentences about your VE Day celebrations.
Well done for all of your hard work. Keep working hard and being your fantastic selves!
