You are invited to make an Easter picture to say thank you to all of our doctors and nurses and our National Health Service.  We will send these on to our local NHS.

 

The picture can be drawn or painted. It should be bright and colourful and include:

An Easter egg

A drawing of you 

A message saying something along the lines of - 

Thank you to all of our nurses and doctors 

Thank for looking after everyone

Thank you to everyone in the NHS

 

Please take a photo of the picture and put it on your class blog.

Ask one of your parents to email the picture to  bhs-support@educ.somerset.gov.uk with your name and class.

Put your picture in one of your windows.

Happy Easter Kestrel

 

I hope you all have a very happy Easter. I have uploaded some 'Easter Holiday Activities'. Should you wish to complete them, I would love to see what you are up to on the blog. Stay safe. Have fun!

Accessing learning from home

 

All children have an exercise book at home. This book contains our school handwriting policy, year 6 spellings and log in credentials for their Times Tables Rockstars account and their Bug Club accounts. 

 

We wish everyone good health at this difficult time and hope that the content we put on here can help in some way. 

 

 

Reading

Kestrel have all been given reading workbooks to practice as often as possible. Children have access to reading books on Bug Club. These books are set to their current reading level. To access Bug Club, please click on the link: www.activelearnprimary.co.uk

The children's username and password is in their books that they have been sent home with. The school code is: hbah.

 

David Walliams will also be releasing an audio story every day for the next 30 days absolutely free. I know many children in Kestrel enjoy reading his great books.

Spellings

There are year 6 spellings in the children's home books. The daily routine of 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' can be used for these and the spellings could be broken up into groups to spread them out over the weeks. We usually learn 10 a week. 

 

 

Maths 

Kestrel have all been given maths workbooks to practice individual topics daily. Kestrel Class have their own Times Tables Rockstars login. This is stuck in the front of their home learning books. Please could children practice these wherever possible. 

 

White Rose Maths are uploading 5 lessons a week free of charge. They will cover areas that we would normally be doing in class. There are questions for the children to answer and the answers have also been provided. Please do make use of this great resource. There are currently two weeks of lessons on there for Year 6.

Geography Project

If you're looking for a project to keep you busy during this time at home then here is a suggestion for you. Kestrel would have been learning about our changing world as part of geography this year. On Twinkl there is a whole resource pack available for you. This will include a PowerPoint and home learning resources to help further your learning. If you choose to have a go at this, it would be great to see what you have learnt in your home learning exercise books. 

To find these resources, you will need to go onto Twinkl and search "Our Changing World Year 6", there will be six lessons alongside various resources.

Marine Life

Marine Life 1
Kestrel Class have begun to decorate the walls of the school beautifully, in keeping with our school theme of Water. As a class, we will be focusing our art work on 'marine life'. As you can see, the children have taken their time and listened well to instructions, as their outcomes are simply stunning. Keep your eyes peeled for their next masterpieces.
