Hello LKS2 parents and carers,
What a glorious weekend we have had with the sun shining! We hope you are all well and are not too bored at home. It is a very difficult time for the whole country.
Key stage 2 team update
We have all been busy doing lots of different activities:
We have all been making the most of the weather and have been sitting in our gardens. Some of us have had paddling pools out or have just been relaxing. We have done lots of cleaning, decorating and planting seeds. Mrs Credland and her husband have built a summerhouse in their garden!
We have been going on our daily walks making sure we only go out with the people we live with and not meeting up with anyone else. It is quite hard as we are missing our families.
Some of us have family WhatsApp groups where we can video call each other, it is a nice way to stay in touch.
Have a look below at some more ideas to help you with your learning at home as recommended by your teachers. Remember to have fun too!
Garden Scavenger Hunt
Make the most of the spring sunshine and host your very own garden scavenger hunt! Go outside and see how many of these you can find... tick them off or even draw a picture as you go! If you don't have a garden, you could see how many you can spot on your daily walk, through the window, or on your favourite gardening TV show!
Start a scrapbook
Working on filling a daily scrapbook is a great way for children to put aside a little time every day to collect their thoughts, reflect and create. It is also a fun and free way to keep a memento of all the activities they get up to at home.
You will need: A blank notebook or some pieces of craft paper, folded in half and stapled, pens, paint and craft materials. Encourage your child to (hygienically) collect things they find or make drawings of things they see or experience. Making rubbings by placing paper over textured surfaces, printing out photographs (you can get free photographs from an app called Free Prints- you only pay for postage) or cutting pictures out of magazines are great examples of things that can be included in a scrapbook.
With this activity, there are no rules! Allow your child to lead the way and see where it takes you! You could even make a family scrapbook.
