Yr1 – preparing to learn at home

This morning Yr1 were asked how they are preparing to continue their learning at home. Their responses are inspiring . . .

“When I am home on Monday, I am going to wear my school trousers to help with my learning.”

“I am going to do my home learning with mummy.”

“My nanny is going to set up a school for us.”

“My mummy is going to wake me up at 9am and do some exercise.”

“Me and mummy are going to make a sign for a school at home.”

“We are going to make an office in the middle of the room.”

“I am going to make a school in the whole house.”

“I could get into my school clothes and do some learning and I will know when the time is for lunch, I’m going to make my house like Maple Cross.”

Freeze Frames

This week, year 4 have been learning all about their new Literacy text ‘Leon and the Place Between’. Today, the children had to work in groups to produce a freeze frame, showing Leon’s excitement for the magic at the circus, but also showing the lack of enthusiasm from his siblings who do not believe in magic. We spoke about how they had to present their whole body, rather than just an emotion on their face.
