Larch Class

Welcome Back!

It’s been so fantastic to see all the children back after the Summer and we have also enjoyed welcoming a new pupil to Larch too!

Last week we worked hard on counting in Maths. In English we listened to a new story Jim and the Beanstalk by Raymond Briggs, and compared this with Jack and the Beanstalk. We made predictions about the story based on what we had already read.

We also enjoyed a Science week last week. Each week we’re going to be focussing on a different science topic. In Science we learnt all about plants, and we planted some lettuce for our new snails, which we have called Winnie and Willie!

We learnt the Makaton sign for ‘learn’

Home Learning Day 70

Today will be the last daily home learning activity that I’m going to be putting on the blog. Enjoy!

Summer potions Share stories/ pictures about what reminds you of summer. Brainstorm summer words. Challenge children to find objects that remind them of summer (maybe colours or smells) and collect in a pot. Find a stirring stick and record the ingredients on a whiteboard or ‘recipe sheet’.

Home Learning Day 67

Go on a rainbow hunt! Give the children time to find as many different colours as they can find. Or give them an individual colour to find (e.g. sky – blue, it doesn’t have to be something they can hold) Take pictures of rainbow colours in nature then print them off for later to make a collage. Children can make a picture or a rainbow shape.

Home Learning Day 64

Show the children images of the work of Andy Goldsworthy who uses objects from nature to create pieces of art and photographs the results. Try going for a walk and collecting together sticks, moss, stones, leaves, rocks, ferns, seeds, etc. Set the children the challenge of arranging their found objects on a tree trunk outdoors or on the grass. Can they think of ways to join any of the materials together? Photograph the finished sculptures in place. We’d love to see a picture of it!
