Purple Mash update:
We have created a private class blog on Purple Mash where we will choose to share really good pieces of work for everyone to celebrate. You can also comment on the posts and we can reply so if you want to send a hello message or update on there then you can. Only the children in our class and the class teachers will be able to see the work and comments.
Before the comments can be seen by everyone in the class the teachers will need to approve them.
To find our blog, once logged on to purple mash, click on Sharing, the green logo with a planet. This will bring up another menu, click on the shared blogs tab and click on your class.
Film making competition...Follow this link to find out how to make your own short film and enter a competition to win great prizes! Good luck!
We would love to be able to see more of what the children are doing at home, so we have set up a new email address for you to email photographs of any activities or home learning that you would like to share with me.
firstname.lastname@example.org add the photographs as an attachment.
This email will be checked as often as possible but not necessarily daily therefore urgent messages or general queries will need to be emailed to the school admin email address or you can phone the school office.
Monday 1st June This week we are thinking about what we treasure.
Think carefully about what you treasure at home. Think about your family, your friends who are looking forward to see. Draw a picture of the things and people you treasure and write your own thank you prayer.
Use the link below to share a special prayer with your family.
Use the link below to find out about more about moths and butterflies. We should treasure the butterflies that visit our gardens! Find out how we can look after them and we can help our planet.
There are nearly 60 different kinds of butterflies in the UK and nearly 2,500 moths!
Butterflies usually rest with their wings closed, while moths rest with their wings open. Butterflies have long, thin antenna, while moths have shorter feathery antennas. Butterflies generally gather food during the day while moths are seen more at nightime.
Both butterflies and moths hatch from an egg as a caterpillar. Find out what you can about these insects in the UK watchhttps://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01197ql and https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zmrb4wx.
Look at the spotter detective sheets, see which caterpillars, butterflies and moths you can spot.
Complete the butterfly facts sheet, if you don't have a printer draw and label your own butterfly.
Have a go at drawing/painting your own butterflies. You can even make your own model!
Maths Symmetry - 1st June
Something is symmetrical when it is the same on both sides. A shape has symmetry if a central dividing line (a mirror line) can be drawn on it, to show that both sides of the shape are exactly the same.
We see symmetry in nature , like on the wings of a butterfly watch see https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p017l02f
Watch the power point and complete the symmetry sheet. If you haven't got a printer draw your own butterfly with wings which are the same on both sides and therefore have symmetry.
