Just popped in to say I have used your generous gift to buy a lovely watch (I love different watches!) and I have sent lots of food to all the animals at Lamont Farm which is now open again. I hope you think that is a good way to spend your gift. I know there are loads of animal lovers in our class and I hope you will soon be able to visit Lamont farm to meet Porkers and the other animals. If you check their facebook page you will be able to check on their opening times. They have a few new animals – baby rabbits and chickens.
PE – PE with Joe or another physical activity of your choice.
Literacy – Writing – For today’s writing I would like you to write a recount of primary 3. What do you remember? What topics did you enjoy? Why? Did you enjoy STEM week or Maths Week Scotland? Perhaps you enjoy learning how to use technology or use coding programs? Do you remember santa coming into our class? How did you feel that day? Or perhaps you may also want to write something about your time learning at home. Remember, as with all writing genres, to write in proper sentences, use VCOP to help, do your best writing – joining if you can and use your knowledge of spelling and grammar as you write.
Numeracy – Sumdog competition
HWB – The RNLI have created some great resources and lessons to promote water safety during this time. Have a look using the link below and watch some of water expert Liam’s videos if you can.
HWB – Get Stuck In presentation – this resource from Aldi contains an activity bank of 21 short healthy eating activities. It may be something you wish to use over the next few months. The activities offer fun ways to enthuse children about healthy eating, exercise and other healthy habits, while developing higher-order thinking skills. Activities are rated bronze, silver and gold for complexity, to help you choose those most suitable for your children. Where appropriate, ideas to simplify more complex activities for younger children (or extend simpler tasks) are included in the notes.
The activity bank is designed to be flexible, with each idea lasting approximately 10 minutes to fit in as short starters/cool downs or filler activities throughout the day. It is suggested that activities are used on a regular basis, completing 2–3 activities per week to build healthy habits through regular discussions and activities.
