Other years are available by changing the year within the website address.

Literacy:

Practise letter formation and handwriting (the guide for this is in the front of your Home Learning book).

Spell and read the Common Exception words (found at the back of your Home Learning book) and learn the weekly spellings for next term.

Read regularly with your child and take the opportunity to discuss the text, predicting and answering questions to ensure understanding and comprehension.

These can include books from home, comics, etc as well the reading book from school.

Encourage your child to keep a Journal/Diary. This could include drawings, photos, labels and writing.

Children could write their very own Katie Morag story, a letter to a one of the islanders or even a character description of their favourite person in the story

(there are lots of Katie Morag episodes on cbeebies to inspire them).

You may wish to practise previous Comprehension and SPAG SATs papers which you can find online at:

Science:

Our next Science Topic is “We are Explorers”.  You may wish to research and compare different habitats across the world and discuss which animals live there and why.

ICT:

Coding: the children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about Code and can continue to access their lessons online at: https://studio.code.org/s/course2

Art:

Look at the work of the local painter, Victoria Goodman online. Can you draw and colour in her style?

Copy parts of her paintings or create your own using the view from your window.  http://vicgoodman.co.uk/

Research the work of environmental artists, create your own sculpture using things like sticks, shells, pebbles, feathers and leaves.
