A New Project
Hello boys and girls,
I hope everyone is ok and have been enjoying the Home Learning challenges I have been setting each week. I am still checking emails and messages on our class blog, so if you have any problems with any activities or would like any more help then feel free to send me a message Some of you have sent lovely messages to me through the shared folders and via email. Thank you so much and keep up the good work everyone!
This week we begin an exciting new challenge which is going to be completed by all of the boys and girls at St Barts-both at home and in different bubbles at school. It begins with a story........You will need to ask your grown ups to read the story on the photograph slide show below.....If the slides move too quickly it can be paused at any point.
I wonder who this lady could be?
Your first challenge is to draw a picture of the castle that she lives in. Ask your grown up to read the instructions on the next slide show......
Can you complete the first challenge and send a photograph of your Castle picture to me? I would love to put them on the class page. I will share the castle pictures that the children have made at school with you, so you can see what your friends have been doing. The next part of the story will be added to the class page on Wednesday.
Here are some more fun activities that you may like to try at home this week-they have a castle theme! In maths this week I would like you to use 'counting on' to find a total. I have shared a youtube video on how to do this so your grown ups can help you.
Have fun everyone, I hope you enjoy our new story and I can't wait to see your work! x
