Hello Owls

I hope you are all enjoying the phonics sessions and enjoyed making your own books yesterday!  Maybe you will all be authors when you grow up!  Miss Harrington has planned two of your activities today which she hopes you enjoy, RE and art, and I have set a Doodlemaths task for you to do!

RE

This week we are going to be thinking about churches as a special place to Christians.  A church is a special place Christians can go to worship God.  If you live near a church, and are able to, maybe you could go on your daily walk and have a look at the church. If you do not live near a church or are unable to walk to see one, that’s OK - there are images on the attached PowerPoint for you to have a look at.  We are particularly thinking about the outside and exterior of a church and what it looks like.  Think about how do we know it is a church?  Identify some of the key features.  What does it look like?  What do you notice?  How is a church different to other buildings?  If it is sunny maybe you can sit near the church building and try to make an observational drawing! Grown-ups can have a go too!

YR & Y1 Afternoon activity

I hope you enjoyed being little Paddington Bears last week!  This week I thought we could think about what we would take to London on a trip. Paddington Bear always carried a suitcase with him, with all the things he thought he might need.   Watch this short clip of Paddington Bear meeting the Brown family for the first time in London with his suitcase:

I would like you to think about what you would take if you were packing your suitcase to go to London. I think I would put some food, toothbrush, a book, camera and my favourite slippers in my suitcase!  Attached to this email is a template of Paddington Bears suitcase. I would like you to draw some of the items you would like to take to London, or your parents may have a suitcase or bag handy then maybe you could use this and put some items in there.  Take a picture of what you pack! It is up to you whether you choose to draw your items using the sheet or in your workbook or pack them in a bag and take a picture.

We hope you like these activities and have fun learning today!  We are really very proud of you all Owls!

Take care and keep smiling

Mrs Payne and Miss Harrington
