 Welcome Back to the Spring Term in Frog Class.  

 

PE will be on a Wednesday and Swimming is on Thursday from 11 -12 at Market Drayton Leisure Centre.

Homework 24/06/22

As we have been having lots of assessmnets this week, an end of the week quiz would be tricky for homework.  This week I would like ALL of the children to focus on TTRS or NESSY.  In addition I would like them to find time to read and then tell somebody at home about their current book they are reading.  

Homework 17/06/22

Homework - 11/02/22

Children should recap on the story of The Great Kapok Tree.  

The Great Kapok Tree

After this I would like the children to imagine that another rainforest animal comes down the tree to speak with the man.  What would they say to persuade him not to chop down their home?  The children can also draw images of the animal in the same style as the story.  They can either do this on Purple Mash and send me a 2email or on Word and send it to me through email / dojo.  Alternatively if they would like to hand write and decoragte their page then this would also be a nice way to complete the task. They could then bring the work into school next week so that it can be displayed in class. 

Homework this week is to complete the Fire Safety activities.  There is no need to panic about these.  The most important things for the children to consider are knowing their address and how to report a fire and having an idea of their own evacuation plan from their house in the event of a fire.
