We are missing you all but hope that you have had a good holiday with your family.
We are trying to give you the work which you would have been doing in school. Sometimes you will have to use Youtube as some of our books are not easy find!
If we can, we will put a photo of a completed worksheet to see what we expect. Please always write using a lead pencil and always try and be as neat as you can. Remember, you can send photos of you enjoying your work and send them to email@example.com
Love Mrs Brierley, Mrs Lumb, Mr Hayward and Miss Newton.
Friday 17th April
This will be an Outdoor Learning Day in remembrance of Mr Hamblett.
Here are a selection of ideas which you could do at home - inside or in your own garden. You don’t have to do them all - just pick a few which are interesting to you, and that your grown-ups are happy with. There are lots of attachments which have information or instructions. You can
send in your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you make a picture from twigs, leaves, petals etc that you have found on the floor? (Don’t pick flowers to use - you could get into lots of trouble!) You don’t have to stick them down - you could just lay it out on the floor or table and take a photo of it!
Drawing / Painting
Draw what you can see from your window or go outside and draw a close-up picture of a plant.
Use fallen leaves and twigs to make a face
Bark and Leaf Rubbing.
Find some fallen leaves, can you make a picture using your rubbings?
Birdwatching - Over 30 minutes see how many birds you can spot.
Sit at a window and use the spotter sheets to help you identify them. If you think you can be super quiet you could sit in the garden! Keep a tally chart of how many of each type you see. You Could put some bird food out if you have any to help attract them!
If you have any seeds, ask if you can plant and grow something. You will need to remember to look after them by watering them and talking to them too! (Plants like that!)
Cakes and Biscuits - a firm favourite of Mr Hamblett’s.
If you are allowed, bake some biscuits. Can you think of any interesting shapes to cut them into. You could make some fairy cakes or a big cake. You might even be allowed to decorate them.
If you can’t bake (I know there is an issue with flour) perhaps you could have a biscuit or piece of cake with your lunch or for snack!
Build a bird’s nest!
Follow the instructions on the sheet. If you haven’t got a branch which you can safely reach, just make it on the ground like swans and ducks do!
Make a minibeast home!
Find a quiet corner of the garden and make a safe place for minibeasts to live. Take care with sharp sticks - ask a grown-up if you need help!
If you’re going out with an adult for a walk you could do this, or maybe in your garden.
