Hi Everyone!

 

How are you all? What have you been up to this week?

This week me and Lewis have had a go at laying flags. This turned out to be much harder than either of us thought it was going to be, especially as the video we watched made it look quite straight forward. Anyway quite a bit of falling out later we have finished flagging the yard. I'd like to say that it is flat but I wouldn't be telling the whole truth as it definitely isn't! Never mind! I'm hoping my dad is going to come and rescue the project when this is all over and done with. On a positive note Zarr and Teddy have loved having the extra room to chase each other around in, although they don't like the plants and keep trying to eat them!

Don't forget if you have any photos that you would like me to add to our class page send them in Please just add a note saying that I have your permission.

 

Keep in touch and keep safe x

 

 

 

Maths

  • practise counting in 2's, 5's and 10's
  • look at coins and money, understanding the value of each and making different amounts
  • go on a shape hunt
  • estimate using non standard measure-e.g. I wonder how many handspans the sofa is?         Compare- why did it take more handspans for you?
  • using positional language
  • prediction- how many..., how long..., etc.
  • time on an analogue clock 

 

Literacy

  •  I spy 
  • tell your favourite story- this encourages good listening skills
  • ask questions about the story- have they understood? 
  • sing action rhymes- a favourite of the class is the pirate song
  • role play a scene from a favourite film or book
  • Grandma's shopping list- add an item each time
  • keep reading- books, comics, recipes anything at all!

 

 

Home Learning

Some of you have been sending photos with your emails showing me what you have been up to. I thought that if I enjoyed seeing them so much then so would your friends!

Ramadan

 

The month of Ramadan starts on 23rd April and is celebrated all over the world by our Muslim friends. I've added some activities and information for you to have a look at so we can all share the celebrations.

Eid al-Fitr

As the holy month of Ramadan ends our Muslim friends will be celebrating Eid al-Fitr. Celebrations may be a little bit different this year as we are still having to be careful. But I'm sure this won't be able to dampen spirits. 

"Eid Mubarak!" to you all. 

Saint George and the Dragon
Thursday 23rd April is Saint George's Day. Saint George is the patron saint of England. Here are a few activities for you to have a look at. Enjoy!
Can you help?

This week Saint Margaret's received an email from Bury & Rochdale Care Organisation asking the children from across Bury and Rochdale to draw rainbow pictures and send them in to help brighten up the walls in the hospital corridors. I know lots of you in Oak Class are very arty and and creative and might enjoy this, especially as it is to help others. Be as creative as you like, you could paint, felt tip or even use the computer! Below is the address for you to either email or post your pictures to. Have fun!

VE Day

Victory in Europe Day - also known as VE Day - celebrates the Allied Forces accepting the Nazi’s unconditional surrender from World War 2. The final document was signed on 8 May 1945 and this was when the first VE Day was celebrated. There were street parties and parades throughout the Western world - especially in the UK and the USA. More than a million people took to the streets in Great Britain, with the greatest crowds in London. The day was declared a national holiday with pubs opening late.

Although the war wasn't over everywhere for many people of both nations, VE Day signalled an end and gave them a glimpse of a future that was not entirely governed by a global war. And for the families who were lucky enough to be reunited with loved ones, it was a day worth celebrating.

P.E EdStart - Activity sessions will be released each Monday linked to the booklet through our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram)
