Hello KS1 parents, carers and children,
Newsletter number 12 Mrs Roberts and I have returned to write the newsletter once more! We have continued planning and preparing fabulous lessons ready to welcome some children back to school.
We have some super pictures to show you this week from Spectacular Six! These children have been so proud to share some of their amazing work and activities that they have done during lockdown.
Please refer to the pdf above for the pictures of the Children.
Kaleem had great fun on his super bike and he was ready to blow some bubbles! Moheed created this fantastic message. Haaris was doing some super home learning! Anabia was reading her favourite fairy tale whilst looking like a princess! Thanks to the parents who have emailed these fantastic pictures in and allowed us to share them with you all! We would love to see more of your work and pictures so please email them to the school office the address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure to give us permission to share these and also state your child’s class.
This week, Mrs Ashford and I have decided to try some new things! Even though we are in lockdown, the KS1 team have loved using the time to have a go at new things and to try and earn our own resilient star badge! Trying new things is so important because we can find out what we like and what we dislike and we can also discover new talents that we never knew we had! In our busy picture this week, the children are trying lots of new things at school!
Have a go at the activities and remember to take photographs or keep what you make, then we can see them when you return to school.
Take One Picture – Time for school!
Look at this picture. We love a ‘busy’ picture and talking about what we can see!
Have a go at the activities in the grid below that link to this picture.
Design and technology and art
What does a classroom need?
What other things would your dream classroom have?
What shape would your classroom be?
Aim higher: Draw you and your friend in the playground and in the classroom! Don’t forget to add lots of detail and colour.
What can you see in the four cardinal directions; North, East, South and West when looking at the school picture?
Would you build it in a hot climate or a cold climate and why?
Aim higher: Can you create a map of the classroom?
3) Ask a grown up in your house what their classroom was like when they were at school.
Aim higher: What is the difference between the classrooms of the past and classrooms now?
Would you have brick walls, glass walls or no walls and why?
What would your chairs and tables be made out of?
Aim higher: Which material would you not use to make a pencil?
Take One Picture
Time for school!
I awoke with glee and joy because today was our day to shine! I could feel the excitement building in my tummy like butterflies! In the morning, all of the children rushed into the classroom with big, beaming smiles holding their bag containing their best, sparkly clothes. We had to get changed quickly so we weren’t late for our big moment. Then we walked with wonderment and trepidation in to the hall where we saw lots of lights, cameras and heard the word action!
What time did school start and finish?
Did you have to go to school?
