Please see below for Easter home learning activities & messages from class teachers...

Reception - Cedar

Dear Parents,

Thank you for the messages and photos of your children through Tapestry. I am really encouraged by the learning that I have seen and am grateful for your dedication in continuing your child's education. They have put so much into their Reception class experience and I'm sure you can see how far they have come since September.

Please continue to send evidence on Tapestry of your child's learning and comment on posts you receive. Even though we are not in the classroom, your child needs to continue their education and pursue their interests. The posts on Tapestry also document your child's development and are used as indicators of interests and attainment. 15 minute short blocks of learning are appropriate, letting them have a break/play before the next activity. 

Best wishes to you and your family,

Mrs Reilly

Hello Parents & Carers,

I hope you have all been busy with your home learning packs! Below are lots of fun home learning activities for our lovely new topic 'The Enchanted Woodland.'

Please complete as many as you can and send pictures of anything you have created/built/found! 

After the Easter holidays, you will be receiving a DB primary login and further information on how to use it. On DB primary there will be further home learning activities. Watch this space! 

Have a lovely Easter break. 

Stay home and stay safe,

Hello Parents & Carers,

Thank you to all the children logging into DB Primary everyday! Well done.

Below are a list of suggested home learning tasks linked to our topic:

  • Now that you have found out about Brunel, find out about some other famous engineers. Search the web and use non-fiction books. Why not draw a picture to show one of their famous achievements. 
  • Play a tumbling tower game such as Jenga.
  • Make a detailed diagram of a castle, labelling interesting features. Find out about murder holes, gardrobes and loopholes.
  • Make your own information book about castles, bridges or tunnels.
  • Design and create a model of a famous structure from around the world, using junk materials found at home.
  • Find famous landmarks from around the world on a globe or in an atlas. Which would you like to visit? What continent are they in?
  • Design a new landmark for your local area. Think about what materials you could use and what special features it could include. Plot where it might go on a map of your local area.
  • Make your own animation of the 3 Little Pigs. 

Stay home and stay safe,

Hello Parents & Carers,

Thank you to all the children logging into DB Primary everyday! Well done.

Below are a list of suggested home learning tasks linked to our new topic; Flow:

  • Test a range of natural and man made materials to see how well they float, including a peeled orange, unpeeled orange, an unopened can of regular cola and an unopened can of diet cola. Make your predictions before you begin testing. Group the materials according to whether they float or sink and compare objects in each group. Can you explain your results?
  • Learn the meanings of key words associated with rivers, such as upstream, downstream, bank, riverbed, dam, depth, meander and source.
  • Put a droplet of water on a smooth surface and on a board covered with rough surface (eg, sandpaper). Tilt the boards slowly until the water starts to run down the board. Which board did you have to tilt higher for the water to flow? Can you suggest why? What force causes water to flow downwards?
  • Create a knowledge mind map of all your discoveries

Stay home and stay safe,

I am so excited to tell you that our first topic for the summer term is called Burps, Bottoms and Bile. It is all about discovering and investigating what is inside our bodies! 

To get ready for this topic I am setting you some home learning tasks to complete over the Easter holidays. 

Please have a look at the below PDF and choose one or more of the activities to complete. 

Upload a photo of your project on to the class blog so we can all share our discoveries. 

I look forward to seeing all of your hard work. 

Good luck!

Let’s travel back 5000 years to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings. Find out about life on the river’s fertile banks, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture. Unravel the secrets of ancient tombs, using historical sources and age-old artefacts. Find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods!  Become an apprentice and work for Ramose – he’s the chief embalmer at the Beautiful House. Help him prepare a body for its journey into the afterlife. Now open the doorway to ancient Egypt – who knows what treasures you will find?

 

For your home learning activities over the Easter holidays, I would like you to complete as many of the activities on the document below as you can.  This work is a really good chance for you to work with your family, especially if you have younger siblings! Ask them to help with some of the activities you are doing and have some fun together learning about Ancient Egypt. Upload your work (and any behind the scenes footage of you creating your work!) to your blog.

Stay home and stay safe,
