Week commencing 18th May
Hello Rowan Class. Did you work out what the tune was? It was Memories by Maroon 5. I'll keep you posted with my progress.
Hope you're all OK and are keeping safe. Everyone has done really well so far and hopefully things will start to get back to normal soon.
Meanwhile, here are some more activity ideas this week...
Let’s play BINGO! We all love a game of Bingo, especially when we win. Create some Bingo cards and come up with some rules for the game. Don’t just make this a ‘call out the number’ game. You might want to make up some Maths rules so people have to work out the numbers for themselves. You might want to be imaginative and come up with some crazy rules. It’s up to you! Once you have done this, have a go at playing it with everyone at home!
Everyone knows Mr Ashford and Mrs Thompson like a good holiday. We both really miss our holidays, like I am sure a lot of you do! Don’t worry, we will get on them again. Where would you like to go? Have a look on Google Maps and find 10 different places in the world you would like to visit sometime in your lifetime. Once you have 10, do some research about each place to make sure it is definitely somewhere you would like to go. What did you find out? Is it somewhere I should book a holiday to when lockdown ends?
Did you know 20th May 2020 is ‘Worldwide Bee Day?’ Bees are really important creatures in our world. Not just for you honey lovers, although that is a huge advantage of bees. If you look at the plate of food on your dinner table, bees have played their part either pollinating the many vegetables and fruits we eat directly or pollinating the food for the animals that many of us eat. I know that all sounds very scientific, but it’s very important! Anyway, to show our appreciation for bees, why not having a go at making a bee? You can make this out of something as simple or as complicated as you like. Just be imaginative.
Let’s have a treasure hunt! Hide some of your toys or games in different places around the house. Then, design a crazy and challenging treasure map to show where they can be found. Give this to someone in your house to do and get them thinking!
Let’s look at flags. So we have had a think about where we might like to visit in the world. Every country has its own flag and a lot of these look very colourful. Colours of flags are a popular question on quizzes like The Chase and Tipping Point and you either know them or you don’t. So let’s try and know them! Pick 5 countries (or more) and look on Google Images to find out what their flags look like. Then, have a go at drawing them or even making them. When we get back to school, we will find out who is the flag champion (the child who knows the most colours for the different flags). Enjoy!
