Our topic this term is, 'The explorer in me!' The children were to be looking at and exploring the local environment. The children would be observing changes in the environment, looking at similarities and differences in the environment and taking a good look at mini beasts within our environment!
Not every one has access to a garden, however you could use your daily one hours exercise to go on a bug hunt or to observe the changing trees and plants around you.
Below is a sentence matching activity (if like me, you do not have access to a printer at home, you can simply ask your child to read the sentences from the screen, or if you have the time, you may wish to write them out yourself). Once you have completed the activity, you may want to find some interesting leaves or twigs in your environment, and write your own sentences to match!
The children have learnt about the work of a range of artists this year from Kandinsky to Andy Goldsworthy. This term, the children were going to look at the work of the artist Matisse. He created a piece of art work titled, 'Snail'. See if you can create a piece of art work in the style of Matisse!
Reading for pleasure!
During our topic, we were going to share a range of texts with the children. As this is not possible at the moment, we have added links to some of the stories we read to your children in term 5.
These stories are simply for pleasure, but please remember to try and read daily as this will support your phonic and key word knowledge! Enjoy!
