Dear Owls

It is really good to hear that you have been enjoying the learning tasks we have been setting for you!  Lots more fun activities about Paddington and London to do!  Unfortunately it sounds like the weather might be a bit more changeable this week…anyway here we go again!  Remember today we start new phonics lessons on line – Reception will be live from 10am and Year One from 10.30am; children only need their workbook and a pencil.  After they have been uploaded daily, they are available to be viewed at any time.  Link is below!  If your child has found the session tricky, it may be worth them doing the ‘learning to blend’ session at 11am too!

Here is your work for Monday, you can do the activities in any order but try to do them all if you can.  An example of a daily timetable is on the website to help.

Afternoon activity


Reception – Miss Harrington hopes you enjoyed the video she asked you to watch last week and hopefully you were able to spot most of the key places to spot or visit in London!   This week you are going to explore the London Eye! The London Eye is a famous landmark in London and lots of people visit this when they go to London. Some of you may have already been on the London Eye.  If you follow this link you will be able to explore the London eye:  (Parents if you are able to use google earth it might be nice for the children to explore London and the London eye through this lens to give them a different way of exploring the capital city!).  When you have watched the clip, Miss Harrington would like you to draw the London eye. You can use whatever you like to create your picture…this can be paint, chalk, pencils or anything else you can think of!  What shape is the London Eye?


Y1 Geography - So far, we have learned London is the capital city of England.  Watch this clip about London Now watch the video again and use the attached tick list to spot all the famous London landmarks! You don’t have to print it out, you can talk through the activity - can you see all the parts of London?

Now we are going to be looking at 'Human and Physical Features' – we learned this during our Hong Kong topic! (Human features are things that people need to build and physical features are part of nature or what God would have created).  I have attached a powerpoint for you to look at to revisit this concept.  Now I would like you to complete the attached cut and stick activity – sort the pictures of famous London landmarks, which are human? Which are physical?  You can always make a table and write the famous landmarks underneath to save printing!


Have fun with your learning today Owls!  Remember to do what your grown up tells you, try your best with your work, and be kind and helpful.

Take care

Mrs Payne and Miss Harrington
