Can you write an Acrostic Poem about Christmas?
Have a look at Miss Shackelford’s example for inspiration:

Thank you to all those children that have sent pictures of their home learning either by email or added to their J2E files. I have really enjoyed looking at them and finding out what you have been up to ! smiley

 

We will continue to use our class page for the rest of this half term but should we still need home learning after Christmas, I will start to use J2E for this. I am in the process of being set up on the website and shown how to use it.

YR 2s: The Christmas code breaker activity seemed popular in school and at home today! I have attached some more for you to have a go at.
 
YR 1s: Have a go at the addition and subtraction Nativity Code Breaker activity. Once this is complete you can try another of the worksheets if you like!

 

Literacy:

Today in English we will be re-writing our Christmas play but we will focus on just 8 key moments. Have a think about what the most important moments in the play were and draw pictures to represent these, we will be writing about them on Friday. I have attached a sheet that might help you with the layout of your recount.

 

Christmas Cards:

 

I have found some examples of Christmas cards that you could make at home using recycled wrapping paper, newspaper or buttons that you might have around the house.
