A book for you to read…
Mr Thurtle’s PE session
Well done everyone. It has been a challenging half term, trying to get to grips with new technology and a new way or learning, but we made it through!
Here are some optional half term challenges for you and your family. Remember, you should only be socialising with the people you live with.
1) Did you know pancake day is Tuesday 16th Feb? Why not get create with some pancake making together.
2) Camping – in your home! Why not make a den or tent and have a night ‘under the stars’ in your own home…
3) Did you know Wednesday 17th Feb is Random Acts of Kindness Day? Why not write a letter to a family member telling them how much you love them? Or have a video chat with someone? What other kind acts can you think of to do?
4) Why not have a home cinema day? Choose a family film, maybe get some snacks and drinks ready, and cosy up together.
5) What about learning a new song or dance that you could show your family or someone using a video chat?
Have a wonderful half term everyone and I will see you back in zoom school on 22nd Feb.
Norwich Puppet Theatre opportunity
Please see below this fantastic opportunity from Norwich Puppet Theatre. You can do this over half term for FREE!
Hi from Norwich Puppet Theatre’s Education Team,
We have an adaptation of some of Grimm’s most magical tales which can be enjoyed online by all the family and shared with another family too.
Follow this link https://www.puppettheatre.co.uk/whats-on/puppetry/little-grimm-tales to book tickets.
To accompany this show we have a free make your own frog puppet workshop https://youtu.be/OLWZlpPyvkE so you can make your own talking puppet before or after the show.
We also have lots of free online workshops to have fun with over half term. All our workshops use simple materials so children can make them at home.
Monday 4th January
Good Morning All.
I hope that you had an enjoyable and safe Christmas holiday.
I am posting some work on here for you to do today. We will then talk about it this week.
Did you know today would have been Sir Isaac Newton’s birthday?
Have a look at this information about him…
Can you now use this information to write an information fact file about him? Here is a writing frame you can use to help you if you need.
For maths, I would like you to practice your focus times table. Use the game ‘Hit The Button’ to help you.
I would also like you to remind yourself of how we round. Here are 3 sets of questions for you, followed by the answers.
We are at the end of the first week back after half term, and the children have come back ready to learn which is fantastic!
This week we have started thinking about Armistice Day, and written poems. Remembrance Sunday is this weekend, and in school on Wednesday we will be having a virtual assembly to mark this important date.
Today we have also had a conversation about what this lockdown means. Schools remain open, which means I still get to see these wonderful faces everyday in the week, but usual lockdown rules still apply: children should not be mingling outside their households, they should not be out to play unsupervised, and ideally time spent outside of the house environment should be limited. This will help us all stay safe.
Happy Half Term!
Well done Leopards! A wonderful half term.
Make sure you keep reading throughout the holiday, and go on bbc bitesize or discovery espresso if you want any further challenges.
Hit the button is also great for you to practice your times tables!
Enjoy your holiday and make sure you stay safe!

Optional work for home
We have had a wonderful week this week, beginning our learning about inspirational black figures as part of Black History Month. We even had a zoom workshop with Anna Mudeka, a Zimbabwean musician living in Norfolk, who told us stories and other aspects of her heritage.
We also begun learning how to add fractions with different denominators. If you are looking for work to do at home alongside reading and spelling, practising this would be very beneficial for the children, as having secure understanding of this before we develop it further will really help them. They have been using multiplication grids to help them, while they are still learning their times tables.
Here is an explanation of what we have learnt, and some possible questions you could do at home.
