Spring Worksheets

Below are some spring worksheets that you can print off

Home Learning Activities

Let's hope the sun shines for the next few weeks and you and the children can have a good Easter break. I Have sent a few practical ideas if you need anything to keep busy, but please do not feel pressured to do any 'work' activities over this time.

PSHE

In PSHE we have been looking at emotions. This is a good PowerPoint to use as a game with the children. Try to ask them if they can think of other reasons why people feel this emotion.....also what can we do to help people when they feel that emotion.

Ideas for Home Learning

Shapes

This week we would have been looking at shapes.  These two PowerPoints will help the children recap 2D and 3D shapes. 
 You could also go on a shape hunt around the house looking for different shapes.   
You could describe an item in the house by its shape or properties, this might be easier if you limit the choice to 3 items
You could describe an item hidden from them and see if they can guess what it is, if you model the game first, they could be the describer (good for extending speaking skills too)

Science

In Science we have been exploring sound this half term, the children could always be encouraged to play a game, where you make a sound and they have to identify it. This PowerPoint we used a bit at school, but they might enjoy looking at it again.

Maths

In Maths we have been doing some work on money, use coins and notes to encourage the children to identify them.....also you could play pretend shops to pay for things with 1p coins and 2p coins. These PowerPoints will help your children transfer their knowledge about coins to making totals.

Story Time

This is a PowerPoint of the story we have currently been reading this half term.  You can watch it with the children and ask them different questions about the story and encourage them to tell you the story and predict what is going to happen next.

Enterprise Day & Topic

Purple class were busy making peppermint creams for Enterprise day. We had fun on our first snow day. As part of our topic Town and Country we went to see where each of us lived and what our house looked like.

Christingles

We had fun making Christingles. We got some oranges and put a red ribbon around them.  Then we picked up sweets with cocktail sticks.  Then we poked these into the oranges.  We then made a hole for a candle.  We put the candle in and then we use a match (with Sarah's help) to light the candles.

In Science we have been exploring light.  We used torches to find jewels in the dark.  We looked through kaleidoscopes and put on sunglasses.  We used mirrors to make our own kaleidoscope.

Halloween Fun

We have been looking at the tradition of Halloween.  We got a pumpkin and everyone helped scoop out the inside and then Sarah carved a face in it.  Then some children helped light candles to put inside.  

We then use coloured tissue paper to try and make our own pumpkin and drew faces on them with coloured pens.
