Christmas/Holiday news 

 

Can you tell me all about the lovely things that you have done during the Christmas holidays. You may want to write about your news, draw pictures or even record yourself speaking about what you have done. Remember to include interesting vocabulary and try to begin your sentences with different sentence starters. 

 RWI 


Can you please watch the Ruth Miskin RWI lessons (YouTube) daily from home as this is what we are learning in class. Children will be learning from Set 1 sounds.

This is useful as this will help your child spell the words with the new sound. (If you need to know what sounds to learn please email me). 

 

See link below

 RE-Special people 

 

Our new topic this term is all about special people. Can you draw a picture of a person who is special in your life and write words around your picture to describe them e.g. kind, thoughtful, gentle, reads stories to me

 

iI have included a template below or you may want to draw your picture on a piece of paper. 

The Feast of the Epiphany 

 

Wednesday 6th January is the feast of the Epiphany, when the wise men visited baby Jesus brining him gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Click the link below to watch the video of the Christmas story below, pay particular attention to the section where the wise men arrive.  

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrTFAZPQxpE

 

Talk about these questions with your parents.

 

1. What important things happen in the story?


2. Would you have done what the wise men did?


3.What would you bring to give to the baby Jesus?

 

Just as the Wise Men brought baby Jesus gifts on Epiphany, we too are called to give Jesus gifts. These gifts can be small sacrifices, kindness to others, service to others, and much more! Make your own gift box and decorate it ( see ideas below) draw your gift inside. Explain why you have chosen to give it to Jesus this year.

 

I've included a template below to make a box.

Act of kindness poster 

 

Create a poster showing an act of love and kindness that you can show/give to people today. 

Create a heading to state what this act of kindness is and draw a picture of the kindness deed itself.  You can try Fred talking, mark making or having your parents help you scribe what you have drawn. 

 

By doing these acts of love and kindness we are giving Jesus the most important gift of all  which is to 'Love One Another'.

 

Use the pictures below to help you think of ideas.

New year activity/ Jar of hope

 

Below you will find a blank jar. Can you fil your jar with things that you hope for 2021. You can draw pictures or write sentences of all the things you would love to do when lockdown is over and the hopes that you have for the coming year.

Draw a picture of your dragon. You can use the worksheet below to help you. The worksheet is based on the film How to train your dragon. If you've never seen the film have a look at the trailer below. If you have the film why not watch it again to help you describe your dragon.

4  .Make a list of all the different minibeasts you can think of.

Go into the garden on a minibeast hunt  and see what minibeasts you can find. Where are they all hiding?

Look under stones and in trees and bushes too!

Look at the sky, some minibeasts can fly!

 

Read Mad about Minibeast by Giles Andreae 

 

Add any minibeasts you have missed out to your list.

Did you know that all these creatures were minibeasts?

5. Choose your favourite minibeast e.g ladybird,  Draw a picture and write about that minibeast, What does it look like? What does it eat? Where does it live? Can you find out any interesting facts about your minibeast?

 

6. Continue to learn number bonds to 10 and if confident number bonds to 20. 

e.g

1 + 9 = 10

9 + 1 = 10

 

19 + 1 = 20

1 + 19 = 20 

 

Have fun this week. Remember you do not have to do all the activities, they are just there for you to dip into. Keep safe!!!
