Week 10

Hi Turtles, I hope you are all well, Just a few reminders:


- The class blog is available fro you to use at any time you want. You can blog about anything you want, comment on others blogs and create your own avatar. There has been lots of activity on there recently and the children in school are getting to blog too, so it might be a good place to catch up with those you haven't seen for a while.


- I loved getting lots of pictures when school first shut, this seems to have died down now. It would be great to get some more again. Or you could post them yourself on the blog for everyone to see and comment on!


- Mrs Bowley has found a fantastic FREE website with loads and loads and loads and loads of book and comics to read. You don't have to log in, sign up or anything! Feel free to explore it and enjoy the books and comics that are on there. When you do visit, if you click on the info button on a book it tells you what age range it is aimed at, this will help you select book that are appropriate for you.

Think about our story for this week. Design a poster that invites EVERYONE to a family disco. Think carefully about the information you need to include like the time, place and games you might play.



Imagine you have been to the party. What was it like? Who was there? Who won the games? Was it loud? Colourful? Busy? Write a description of what the party was like. Remember to use adjectives to make your writing interesting.

Geography – All about Australia


Look through the PowerPoint giving information about Australia.

Create a fact file using the information you have just learnt. You could use one of the templates if you have a printer or you could create your own layout (like we will be in school). Don’t forget to make it colourful and interesting to look at. Use bubble writing and borders!

Art – Wassily Kandinsky


This week we are going to recreate work of the artist Wassily Kandinsky. I have put together a PowerPoint showing some of his work for you to study. Notice that the colours are very bright and there is a mixture of straight lines and lines that are more free hand. The shapes overlap, the colours change and in some you can almost make out a face or other human features.

Have fun setting out your Kandinsky inspired work, use a ruler to give straight lines, a cup or bowl for circles. The best thing with his work is that pretty much anything goes!!



 PE – Foot Golf


In school we will be playing foot golf. We are using footballs and hoops to play golf on the field. At home you could set up thing to hit or knock over with a ball, try setting up obstacles that you need to get the ball over, under or through or just have a kick about. Failing that just be active in your own way, play on a bike, scooter or whatever you feel like.

Geography – Amazing Australian Animals


Read about some of Australia’s animals on the PowerPoint.

Decide on the one that you like to most and then create a fact file about it. Include a picture, facts and don’t forget to make it look good by using bubble writing, borders and colour!


Sorting Australian Animals


Think back to what you learnt about Australian animals yesterday. Sort the animals into different groups according to what they eat, what they look like, what animal group they fall into (mammal, reptile etc).

There are some templates to help you think about how to sort them. IF you can’t print you could draw out your group and then write the names or draw pictures of the animals in each group.
