Hello KS1. We hope you have had a lovely weekend despite all the rain! We enjoyed speaking with most of you last week and we are really proud of the work you have been doing at home. Please keep it up!
We hope you have a great week and don’t forget you can send work you complete to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to get as much as possible onto the school website for all to see!
Here is your Home Learning for this week: 4th May 2020
Please choose the ‘Summer 2 – Week 2’
There is a video explaining the task and learning. For each lesson, there are a set of questions and answers. You can write the answers down, or tell the answer to a grown up or sibling. After you have done all of the questions, check the answers to see if you were correct.
We have also set a maths challenge for you to complete on Purplemash, which can be accessed here:
Remember: Save your work once you have finished so your teacher can see it!

Task 1 – Read the story with a grown up and tell your grown up as much as you can remember about the story.
Task 2 - Design a new broomstick for the witch and her animal friends. Draw a picture of it and label it. Then, in sentences, write about why you think it is a good broomstick. Remember to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

Task 5 – Where should the witch and her animal friends travel to next on her broomstick? What could their next adventure be? Write what you think happens next in the story. Remember to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.

As we are currently in the season of spring, go on a hunt around your garden or during a walk to find all the different features of spring.
There is a checklist attached below that you might want to use.
Collect some signs of spring that you have found.
Using the things you collected on your spring walk, can you make a collage of everything you have collected? This could either be glued onto paper or you can arrange the materials you have collected and take a picture of your art work.
If you are feeling really creative this week, have a go at this blossom tree collage.
V.E Day Activities
On Friday we commemorate V.E. day and there will be lots of celebrations on TV. V.E Day stands for Victory in Europe Day – it was considered the formal ending of the Second World War following the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany. At the end of the Second World War people were happy that the fighting had stopped. However, lots of things like food were still rationed.
On V.E Day itself lots of people held street parties, but they also remembered those who had still not returned from fighting and those who would never return.
Please click on the link below to find out more.
Write a description about what you can see from the pictures in the document above – why do you think that those people are happy that the war is over?
Draw your own picture of what a street party might be like – make it really colourful. Who might be in your picture?
Lots of people ate jam sandwiches at street parties. Can you make your own jam sandwich at home?
Make your own VE Day bunting and/or flags, just like the ones in the photographs – what messages would you put on it for this year? You can also make your own flag using Purplemash. Click here
We hope you have a lovely week. We are thinking about you and your families.
Stay safe and enjoy your week.
From Miss Doman, Mr Lo, Miss Gascon and Miss Kelly.
