Dear Amethyst Class,
It’s now officially the Easter holidays!
A huge well done for your home learning during this time. I know it’s been a very strange two weeks – I still can’t believe that we went at Boggle nearly a month ago now but I am so pleased that we all had a great week away and had lots of fun together up North.
Posted below are some documents/ideas which will keep yourselves - and your families – busy over the holiday. Please do make sure you take some time to relax and have fun over the two week break!
If I find anything interesting/funny/entertaining I will upload it, but there will be no formal English or maths work now until term starts again on Monday 20th April. I will post more information about the new home learning tasks nearer the time.
Thank you to those who have emailed me any finished work – if you haven’t yet had a chance please do so once they are ready.
I will be putting examples of people’s work in a gallery on the class webpage so see if you can find yours. I would also love to see any photos of anything creative or artistic that you have been up to at home!
Other things you might enjoy / find interesting
1) There is a documentary available on iPlayer all about coastal villages – the first episode is all about Robin Hood’s Bay and its smuggling history! Villages by the Sea: Robin Hood’s Bay
2) A free audio book is available to listen on the World Book Day website: A Pinch of Magic by Michelle Harrison. I have a copy on the bookcase at school – it is really good and if you are into mysteries, magic and curses – you might enjoy this! https://www.worldbookday.com/stories/a-pinch-of-magic/
3) Learn how to juggle!
This was published in First Week Junior last month – I thought it might entertain some of you for a little while! (see attached photo)
Remember doing this in Art before Christmas? If you're at a loose end - why not give it another go! I have uploaded two documents for inspiration - one of zentangle pattern examples, and the other a pdf by a Y6 teacher called Miss Stanley who is incredibly artistic! She has come up with numerous ways you can play around with zentangles. Have a look at some of her ideas and have fun!
Here is a link to files of the music we have been rehearsing for a concert - you might want to sing along !
