Remote Learning

Should you find yourself awaiting test results, below are some activities linked to our new topic that can be completed whilst isolating at home.

Design a magical game that can be played by witches and wizards - you might want to think about the game of Quiditich as a starting point or you could choose a game that involves building spells.  The choice is yours!

Once you have decided on your game you need to:

~ Think of a name

~ Write all of the rules, including how many players the game is suitable for and and equipment that is needed.

~ Can you make your game?  This could be done with junk modelling, Lego, Playdoh or by drawing.

Maths Whizz is avaliable to work on for at least 30 minutes every day.

Reading both on your own and with an adult, discuss what you have read, where there any words that you were unsure of the meaning, can you look them up in a dictionary and write them in a different sentence?

Can you find any prefixes or suffixes in your book - what do these words mean?

Have a go at Harry Potter Cosmic Yoga - can you make up some of your own moves?

Swallows topic for the Spring term is Magical words.  We will be exploring a variety of magical stories.

Swallows topic this term is Groovy Greeks, where we will be studying Ancient Greeks, learning about Greek philosophers, and studying texts such as Percy Jackson the Lightning Thief and Greek Myths.
To start our topic we flew to Athens, Greece, the on-board meal was tzatziki, olives, hummus with flat bread and cucumber.

We have also been improving our map reading skills whilst keeping fit with some orienteering.
