Week Beginning Monday 27th April



As you can probably see from the over view English has been divided up into Reading, SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar), Spelling and writing. This is very similar to how we do it at school.

As we have said you can do as little or as much as you want to with your children.

The Romans were famous for their mosaics. They are found in many of the places the Romans invaded or conquered. They often contained images of important people, Gods or just daily life. They tell us a great deal about the lives of the Romans.

You have two tasks about mosaics in the document below.

In addition to the above, here are a few suggestions for some other things you might like to do this week.

Weather Diary

Mindfulness Activity

Create your own weather diary and make a note of the changing weather. Spring is an exciting season which can see anything from snow to sun-bathing. What will Spring 2020 be like?

See separate sheet for instructions.  


Local artist, Caroline Misselbrook has kindly sent us a seahorse repeating pattern which can be printed out, coloured and stuck together to make one large picture (4 copies to be printed to make the large picture).

See separate attachment.

Science from Mrs Arnold

This week’s fun Art@home challenge is to create a portrait of a family member (or a self-portrait if you prefer) in the style of the great artist Picasso!  No materials needed other than paper and some felt-tipped pens or colouring pencils.  Curious?  Check the Art@Home blog post for inspiration.

Volcano Lemons. Make your very own volcano! You will need a lemon, baking soda, food colouring (optional) and washing up liquid. See the blog on the 27th April for the instructions.

We hope that you enjoy the tasks we have set. It would be lovely if you could send us photos or examples of what you’ve been up to so we can share them in the class blog, which will be done on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Keep busy
