Miss Rea has been catching up with all the children each week, finding out about the different learning tasks they have completed and experiences they have been enjoying whilst staying safe at home.
Freddie and his siblings have been completing their Seesaw tasks and enjoyed some challenges set by their Lockdown Carrots!
Oskar and his brother took part in the RSPB Garden Birdwatch and wrote about their favourite bird. Oskar has been working hard to understand symmetry and had fun building a car out of lego! He has been trying new foods and even doing some cooking.
Noah has been busy cooking with his mum, he has made chocolate brownies and pizza. Looks delicious Noah.
Isaac has been getting crafty, making dinosaurs out of playdoh. Excellent dinosaurs Isaac!
Experts say physical activity allows children not only to have a healthy body but help them to have a better outlook on life by building confidence, managing anxiety and depression, and increasing self-esteem and cognitive skills.
Your challenge this week and for over half term is to have an active time once a day. You might like to take a walk in the park, ride your bike, scoot to the shop, skip in your garden, keep fit on the Wii or dance in your bedroom!
We would love to see some photos of the activities you have been enjoying. Show us your home learning task by sending photos on Class Dojo or uploading a piece of work to your journal on Seesaw. You might like to add some photos, record a video or tell us about your task in a voice note.
Your challenge for the week is to build something out of things you may have in your house. You might like to build a tower, a rocket, a house or a car. You could use jelly beans and cocktail sticks, marshmallows and dry spaghetti, boxes, Lego or even biscuits and icing!
Show us your home learning task by emailing your photos via Class Dojo or uploading a piece of work to your journal on Seesaw. You might like to add some photos, record a video or tell us about your task in a voice note.
This week, our focus for home learning is all about being adventurous! We would like to you try foods that you may not normally try.
Ideas for parents:
Allow the children to be playful with their food to reduce anxieties – squash it, smell it, lick it, mouth it, take bites, chew and if they are brave, swallow it! You could even make a picture out of food.
You may like to try some baking or making a new recipe. This will allow the children to see what goes into their food.
Ask the children – is it sweet, salty, spicy? Crunchy or soft? Would they like to eat it again? Maybe the adults could teach them where is has come from or how it is made!

This afternoon, in cooking, the children in ARP wanted to see what porridge tasted like. They have been reading the story about Goldilocks and today they worked together to make porridge with fresh fruit and strawberry jam.
First, we mixed together the milk and the porridge oats in a saucepan.
Next we put the saucepan on the heat so that the milk and oat could mix together to make a porridge. We made sure we stirred it carefully.
After that, we chose our favourite fruits and chopped them up ready to go into our porridge.
Then, Miss Rea put the porridge into our bowls and left them to cool a little so they were not too hot like Daddy bear’s!
We added our fruit and some strawberry jam and when it was ‘just right’ we ate it all up – just like Goldilocks! We couldn’t wait too long, or it would have been too cold like Mummy bear’s!
