In order to sign in you will need your child’s .306 LGFL log on details. If you would like to attend the live session and do not have these details, please email us at email@example.com with your child’s full name, class and school and we will email you back with their log on details. We will be recording the sessions for safety purposes and do ask that an adult is present with all children during these sessions. We are aware that some of you had difficulty logging into the meeting so please let us know and we will email you a link to a tutorial.
When you are not at school, keep doing your fantastic home learning. We LOVE seeing your work so please keep sending photos into firstname.lastname@example.org. We had so many lovely examples this week, we put them all into a video for you to enjoy!
This week the whole trust challenge involves writing a poem or designing a poster which describes their thoughts and feelings about how Black Lives Matter.
- In literacy, we will be writing our own version of the Awongalema story;
- If you need to recap any sounds you can access the DfE Letters and Sounds YouTube videos to support you;
- In maths, we are learning to recognise money and it’s values.
- In science, we are learning about birds;
- In geography, we are learning how to use simple maps and keys;
- In art, we are learning to make a Djembe drum.
Please note that you will need a couple of paper cups to make a Djembe drum.
Next week in our literacy we are going to write poems about some African fruits. Thank you for getting a couple of the following fruits from your local supermarket: banana, mango, pomegranate, passion fruit, watermelon or pineapple. Encourage your child to explore each of the fruits with all their senses and collect some descriptive words in prevision for one of our lessons. You will also need these fruit for our art lesson (observational drawing).
Why not try the African surprise recipe afterwards (see corresponding recipe in our additional activities section)?
