We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year break and make the most of your time being at home, whilst keeping safe.

Remember that you can always contact us if you have any questions on the email address below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

This term our topic will be toys. We will be looking at how toys are made, comparing toys from the past and looking at how they were different to the toys we play with today. We will also have a go at making some of our own toys.

We look forward to seeing all your amazing work that you do whilst you are at home and are excited for another fantastic half term.

Topic: Spring into Spring!

This week will be our first looking at our new topic of Spring into Spring! We will be using our eyes and ears and looking and listening for all the signs of Spring that we can see around us.

Activity 1: Go on a Spring hunt. Look out for buds, birds, flowers, insects and green leaves. I wonder what you will find!

Activity 2: Draw a picture of a flower. Can you label the petal, stem and leaves?

Activity 3: Keep a weather diary for the week. Look outside of your window and see what the weather is like each day. You could draw either a sun, rain cloud or just a cloud in each box.

Activity 4: In Spring it rains a lot to help all the new plants grow. Make a rain gage to see just how much it does rain! Watch this video on how to make one There is also paper instructions in the Spring file below.

Talk 4 writing

PSHE: Rights and Responsibilities

Looking after my special people.

Talk about who are the people in your family, who looks after your family and how do you help to look after your family?

Although adults look different to children, sometimes they need looking after too. You can help to look after their feelings! How could you do this? By giving them a hug, keeping your bedroom tidy, doing as you are asked first time.

Think about how you might help these people in these situations.

  • Your Dad/Mum/Grandma/Uncle is working hard to get dinner ready.

  • Your sister is sick

  • Your Mum/Dad has come home and looks very tired.

Draw a picture of all the special people in your family, label your picture and tell somebody how you will look after each person.

A view from my window

Over the next few weeks we will be taking part in a whole school Art project called 'A view from my window'.

I want you to have a go at completing a piece of work that represents a view from your window. It can be a real view or a made up view.

Task 1: Have some fun completing these drawing starters. You will find some in the art folder below. You could draw something with your eyes closed, draw a picture using your other hand or don't take your pencil off the paper.

Task 2: Look at the different artists and their work in the art folder below and choose you favourite. Can you find out some facts about that artist?

  • What is he/she called?

  • Where did/do they live?

  • What did they like to draw/ paint?

Task 3: Look closely at the picture you have chosen and have a go at copying it.

Task 4: Look out of a window. What can you see? Remember it doesn't have to be the real view it can be any view you want it to be! Go and create!

You can use any art materials you have at home to create your picture; crayons, paint, pencil. You could even do it on Purple Mash. Remember, just have fun and good luck.

All pieces of work need to be emailed in by the 26h February 2021 to add onto our Virtual Art Exhibition to

Communication and Language

This weeks talking picture is The pet shop. Look at the picture and work through the tier questions. You don't have to ask all of them. Maybe choose 5 from each tier depending on how well your child answers them.

  3. Baby Shark mash up

Play Dough Recipe

1 cup of flour (it doesn't matter whether its plain or self raising)

1/2 cup of table salt

1 tbsp of vegetable oil

1 tbsp of cream of tartar (if you don't have this then it will still work, it just wont last as long)

food colouring

(approx) 1 cup of boiling water (add this slowly until it feels like you have added just a bit to much)

Allow it to cool for a bit and then take out your dough and knead it until all the stickiness has gone. Add more flour/ water if needed.

Wrap up in clingfilm and store in the fridge to keep it longer.
