Happy New Year Oak Class
We wish we could see you all in person but we know that you are staying safe at home. We will be in touch on Tapestry and via this page to make sure you have lots of fun activities to do and to make sure that we are supporting you while you work at home.
Please keep visiting our class page as we will be updating the Blended Home Learning activities every week. We will also be checking the Home Learning blue books and giving out new ones when they are needed. Please use this book for any work completed at home and then bring it back to school when your child comes back in. In addition to the book, please use Tapestry to keep us informed with any practical tasks or work that is done at home. We do very much love to see on a daily basis what the children have been doing.
We will also be using Tapestry so please be aware of any notifications sent.
Remembrance Day and Diwali
We had a busy time last week celebrating Remembrance Day and Diwali.
On Remembrance Day the children watched a lovely animation during the two minute silence and we then prayed with Yann via the BenBinFro Remembrance service online. To see the animation visit https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b04p4zsl/poppies
We each made a poppy to take home and we also made one poppy each to go on our class wreath.
On Friday we learnt about Diwali. We made diya lamps from clay and we coloured in Rangooli patterns and learnt about the story of Diwali, the Festival of Lights. The children enjoyed learning about Lord Hanuman the monkey King. We all wanted to have more fireworks to celebrate!
Over the last few weeks we have been looking at the artist Keith Haring. As well as creating our own drawings in the style of Keith Haring...we’ve also been creating our own 3D models with playdough and creating life size drawings in our outdoor area.
This week we are exploring our sense of smell
We made some bread in Mrs Norwood's bread maker. The smell was "delicious", "scrummy yum yum" and "even better than mummy's bread!" The children all enjoyed it either plain of with some strawberry jam. As you can see by the last picture, there was nothing left to take home!
