The spellings this week are taken from the Year 1 and Year 2 Common Exception Word lists. Please chose the spelling list that best suits your child’s ability.

Practise your spellings daily using one of the activities from our school's spelling approach. You could even use chalk, paint or Lego!

Science:

One of the Science Topics we have covered this year is ‘Animals including Humans.’ One of the areas we looked at was the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We learnt about the benefits of exercise and we thought about what exercises we enjoy completing.

While you have been at home, have you had a go at any new exercises? Maybe you have joined in with ‘P.E with Joe’ or you have completed some yoga?

Think of some different exercises. How many times do you think you can complete this exercise in one minute? Think about how you are feeling after each exercise.

Topic:

We are continuing with our topic ‘Kings, Queens and Castles.’

Over the last couple of weeks, you have been finding out all about Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria. I have enjoyed looking at your fact pages and PowerPoint presentations that you have emailed to me.

This week you are going to be comparing the two Queens. Using what you have previously learnt and the PowerPoint below, please can you think about the similarities and differences between the two. Please write your comparison in your book or in the table provided below.

Art:

Paul Klee was a Swiss-born artist. His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included ExpressionismCubism, and Surrealism. One of his paintings is called ‘Castle and Sun.’ You can follow the video, using the link below, which will show you how to create your own version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVfnesiV_cg
