Sparrowhawks

Welcome to Sparrowhawks!


We are the Year 1 class taught by Miss Currant and supported by Mrs Verrecchia, Miss Sims, Mrs Duery and Mrs Butt. We love to learn in different ways, working outside and in the classroom with lots of different activities. 

Friday 17th July 2020 - Last day of school!

 

Hello Hawks!!  WE HAVE DONE IT!  We have completed Year 1!  I hope you have had a brilliant year 1, you have all been amazing and I have really enjoyed teaching you all both in school and through your home learning! 

I hope you have a great summer and get to do lots of fun activities! 

Good luck in Year 2, I know you are all going to be amazing :)

 

Love, 

 

Miss Currant :) 

A brilliant memory jar!

Wednesday 15th July 2020

Good morning Hawks! 

 

I hope you are enjoying your time at home with your families! 

There is no extra science task today :) Just keep on going with the learning plan and enjoy your last week of term :) 

 

Miss Currant 

 

 

Monday 13th July 2020

Good morning Hawks! 

 

Welcome to your last week of Year 1! I hope you have all had brilliant weekends and are ready for your last week! 

 

This weeks learning is all about going into Year 2 and thinking about what you are excited about for next year and all the achievements you have made for this year. There is only 1 task per day and 1 maths task per day to make your last week a little easier and give you more time for fun activities with your families and grown ups. 

 

I have put the learning plan and maths plan (with the powerpoint) on the website as usual! 

Enjoy your last week! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

What a brilliant Solar system poster from Hannah! Well done! You have drawn the planets so beautifully!

Friday 10th July 2020

Good morning Hawks!

 

Your art task today is to make a 3D model of your favourite planet! This could be done using paper mache if you would like or you could draw on a balloon or you could just cover a ball with paper and draw on that!

 

I wonder if as the class we could make the whole solar system?

 

Send in your photos of your planets!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant space writing from Danny! Well done Danny!

Wednesday 8th July 2020

Good morning Hawks!

 

Your science task is a half science and half writing one today!

I wonder if you could come up with your own pneumonic to remember the order of the planets.

 

My        Mercury

Very      Venus

Easy      Earth

Method    Mars

Just       Jupiter

Speeds    Saturn

Up        Uranus

Naming    Neptune

Planets    Pluto

 

This is the one that I always use but I wonder if you could come up with a more fun one! First you will have to remember or look up the correct order of the planets and then go from there! Your adults could help you if you need it :) 

 

Send in your pneumonic and we will see which ones we can remember.

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant home learning from Danny and even a trip to the park! Very lucky!

Monday 6th July 2020 

Good morning Hawks! 

 

I hope you have had a good weekend and didn't get blown away in all the wind we had! Hopefully this week will be nice and sunny and we can all get outside! 

 

This weeks learning is all about Space! We have learnt a bit about space before so I wonder how much you will remember and impress your adults with your astronaut knowledge. 

 

I hope you enjoy your learning this week! Keep sending in the fabulous photos of your home learning! 

 

Miss Currant :)

We have a fossil hunter amongst us and they look like they were very successful!

Evie has been doing some brilliant musical home learning this week! Well done!

Friday 3rd July 2020

Good morning Hawks,

 

I hope you have enjoyed your music topic so far this week. This weeks art task is to make a musical instrument out of recycling from your house. You could use wool and cardboard to make a guitar, you could use lentils and a bottle to make a shaker or try and make a drum with a pot and some material.

Make up a tune to play on your instrument and send either a photo or a video of you and your instrument into school to share with your friends! 

 

I look forward to seeing what you create!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Great home learning Danny! Well done! I love your new collection of instruments!

Super dancing Loki! You can jump so high!

Great home learning Harriett! I wonder if you will ever learn the french horn?

Joshua has been busy with his home learning and has even lost his first tooth!

Wednesday 1st July 2020

Good morning Hawks, 

 

Happy 1st of July! We are in our last month of school. I hope you have enjoyed your music topic so far this week :) 

 

Your science today is another sorting activity to show your grown ups what super scientists you are! We are thinking about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores this week. 

Sort the animals into the right part of the venn diagram after reading the information about the animals :) 

 

Enjoy your science and keep sending in your photos of your work!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some great home learning from a couple of Hawks! A time whizz and a concert to attend!

Monday 29th June 2020 

Good morning Hawks, 

 

I hope you have had a great weekend! What did you all get up to? Did anyone get caught in the rain? I did and I got very soggy! 

 

This weeks learning is all about music which is an exciting topic! I have uploaded the weekly learning plan and your power maths for you as usual. 

 

It is brilliant to hear from you all still and I love seeing the learning that you are doing at home! You are all doing really well and I can see that you are trying your best :) I know that Mrs Hillier will be very proud to have you all next year and see how hard you all work! 

 

Enjoy this weeks learning :) 

 

Miss Currant :) 

We have a new chef in Hawks class who has been cooking up a Chinese Feast!

Some superb art projects! Well done! Can anyone see what animal they have drawn?

Friday 26th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

For your art task today we are going to continue the theme of ‘Around the world’ and think about Australia. In Australia they have a specific type of art called aboriginal art where instead of painting with big brush strokes they use lots and lots of different coloured dots to make up one larger picture.

I have attached a PowerPoint for you to look through to learn more about the art and then you can have a go yourself. Draw a picture of an animal (you will have to make it quite big) and then paint that in and see how it comes out! 

 

Enjoy your arty afternoon!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Evie has been very busy with lots of learning! Well done Evie! Keep up the good work!

Someone in our class has a new kitten! He's very cute!

Brilliant maths work!

Super science! Well done!

Some brilliant home learning from Joshua! Well done, keep up the good work!

Wednesday 24th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

This week for your science we are going to be thinking about the structure of animals. Once again, we have done this before in Autumn term, but I would like you to show your grown-ups how much you can remember. Have a look through the PowerPoint with your grown-ups and then see if you can draw your own animal to label.

If you want a super challenge, then you can draw more than one animal with a different structure and label that too.

If you think that you will find drawing an animal too tricky then you can use the elephant labelling activity that I have attached instead 

 

Enjoy your science!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant fruit facts! Well done!

What a super fun extra activity! Very stretchy slimy!

Some lovely writing about a lovely place!

Monday 22nd June 2020

Good morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have had a brilliant weekend and are looking forward to all the sunshine we are going to have this week! Hopefully you will be able to get outside a little more this week! 

 

Your topic this week is 'Around the world' which gives us a chance to learn about our world a little more which is exciting! I have posted your weekly plan and power maths below. 

 

I hope you enjoy this topic and keep sending in pictures of your home learning! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some lovely art work here! Florence Nightingale would be proud of these lanterns!

Friday 19th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!


Seeing as we have been learning about Florence nightingale and other significant people I thought we could make something that Florence nightingale is famous for carrying around with her during her time helping others.

This week I would like you to make some paper lanterns. I have included some instructions on how to make them. You can either make 1 and then dress up like Florence nightingale and send in a picture of you or you could make lots and hang them up as decorations! It is up to you!

 

I hope you have fun making them!

 

Miss Currant :)

Some super science! Well remembered!

Wednesday 17th June 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

For today’s science task I am seeing if you can remember when we did this back in Autumn term. We have looked at the different type of animals before and thought about why they belonged to each category.

Go through the PowerPoint with your grown-ups and see how many facts you can remember about each animal group. After wards see if you can sort the animals into the correct groups!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Great maths and even some friends to help you out with sharing! Well done!

Some brilliant writing! Well done!

Oh no Hawks! Look what has happened! Poor Hannah has broken her wrist but she tells me that she got to see the bones inside her arm which was pretty cool! I wonder if anyone could make a card for Hannah to make her feel better?

Monday 15th June 2020

Good morning Hawks! 

I hope you have had a brilliant weekend and have stayed dry in the rain! What did you do? I hope you are all still having fun with your families at home :) 

This weeks learning is all about significant people in our history. The people you will be learning about are key figures in our past and are very interesting! 

I hope you enjoy this historical project! I can't wait to see what is sent in! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

An amazing piece of rainforest artwork! Well Done Hannah!

Well done on your spellings Hawks! I have had a look and I can see lots of you are practising hard!

Friday 12th June 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

This week in Art we are going to think about a famous artist called Henri Rousseau. He did lots of paintings of Jungles and put his own unique style on creating them.

I have attached a PowerPoint for you to learn a little about him and also some of his pieces of art.

I would like you to try and recreate one of his pieces of art or make your own using his style of drawing!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Emilia has been busy doing an amazing rainforest project! Well done Emilia! This is great!

Wow! Look at these sock puppets! I would like to listen to a story with them!

Some great animal factfiles! Well done! These could be in Longleat!

These look like some really fun activities!

Wednesday 10th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

This week for your science task I would like you to make a seasons wheel. This means dividing something circular (it could be a paper plate or just a circle of paper that you have cut out) and divide it into 4 sections.

Each section represents one of the 4 seasons. You can write the seasons name in the section and also draw a picture of what a tree would look like in that season. If you would like an extra challenge you can also draw pictures of clothes that you would wear in that season and write a sentence on the back to describe either the tree or the clothes.

 

I hope you enjoy your science task and keep sending in your work!

 

Miss Currant :)

Brilliant topic work! You have looked closely at the different parts of the rainforest!

Some brilliant maths sent in! Well done!

What a lot of animals and some brilliant writing!

Monday 8th June 2020 

Good morning Hawks! 

 

I hope you had a brilliant weekend and did lots of exciting things with your families! It was a little bit more rainy this weekend which was brilliant for the plants but hopefully it will get sunnier soon so we can all go outside again! 

 

This week for your learning you have a rainforest theme which is very exciting! The weekly plan is uploaded along with your power maths :) 

 

Any problems or questions please don't hesitate to email! I look forward to seeing all your rainforest activities!

Brilliant new olympic sports medals! Well done!

Someone in Hawks has been very busy cooking for their family! It looks very yummy!

Friday 5th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

Your art task today is to create your own Olympic medal to go with your new olympic sport or to create a medal for someone in your family who deserves one. Will they be the same colours as usual medals (Bronze, Silver and Gold)? What picture will it have on the front? Will they be metal? Could you make one as well as design it?

 

I hope you have fun with this task today and have a brilliant weekend! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

 

Thursday 4th June 2020 

Hello Hawks! 

I have put these handwriting and number formation practice sheets up as an optional task for you to complete. We know in Hawks that is it very important to do your neatest handwriting and this means we have to practice. 

Please do not feel that you have to do these, they are very much an optional task. 

 

I hope you are all keeping well and keep sending in your brilliant work! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Well done for finding some 'or' words! These can be tricky to find!

Some powerful mathematicians have sent me their work! Well done Hawks!

Some super science! Well done!

Wednesday 3rd June 2020

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

Today for your science task we are going to start thinking about the seasons. I have uploaded a powerpoint to get you thinking about the different seasons and a worksheet to fill in. You can either do the worksheet on Autumn (what was done in the powerpoint) or you can do it about the season we are in now, it is up to you. 

 

I hope you enjoy your science and keep sending in your fabulous work!

Monday 1st June 2020 

Good morning Hawks! 

I hope you have all had a brilliant half term and got up to lots of exciting things! I expect lots of you have been keeping cool because it has been very hot! If you would like to send in any pictures of your half term then please do. I would love to see what you got up to. I have been very busy planting new trees, making things out of elderflower and starting lots of projects with recycled wood! 

 

This week for our learning we have a sports theme to keep us active during the time we are away from school. The weekly plan has been uploaded and so has our power maths. 

I am going to be in school with some of the children in the daytime so might not be able to reply to your emails straight away but I will do my best to reply quickly and if not I will reply to them at the end of the day. 

 

I hope you enjoy this weeks learning and I look forward to hearing from you!

Some great rainbow weaving fish! Well done!

Friday 22nd May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks,

 

I hope you have had a good week so far! I have really enjoyed seeing all the pictures of your home learning! You are look like you are working really hard and you should be very proud of yourselves!

 

For your art task today I thought we could continue on the ‘Under the Sea’ theme and make some weaved rainbow fish. You can use anything to weave into your fish, it could be coloured paper, wool, ribbon, pipe cleaners, anything that you can bend to weave it in!

 

I have attached some pictures and instructions on how to make them. I hope you enjoy your art task and have a lovely weekend in the brilliant sunshine!

 

Miss Currant :)

Under the Sea writing! Well done guys! These are brilliant!

Super maths! Well done!

Extra home learning! Well done guys! You look like you are doing some brilliant extra tasks at home!

Some super science! Good work!

Wednesday 20th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

Today for Science I have 2 different activities for you. One of them is to think about trees again but this time to think about the different parts of a tree.

I have uploaded a cut and stick for you to do but if you don’t want to do it this way, you can always look at the labels that I have provided and make your own big versions of them and stick them on a real tree that you could find in your garden or out on a walk!

 

The second activity is a little quiz to see what you can remember about our learning from the past few weeks. You do not have to do this if you don’t want to and you do not have to do it independently. Your adults could read you the questions and you could talk about the answers together. Some of them are matching activities and I know that all of Hawks like matching activities and we are very good at them!

 

I hope you are having a good week and enjoying your Under the Sea learning! You have sent in some brilliant work so far! Well done! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant reading tasks! Well done!

Some brilliant junk modelling inventions as part of Mrs Butt's challenge have been sent in! Well done guys!

Under the Sea learning!

Monday 18th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you enjoyed your weekend! What did you get up to? I went on a bike ride, played some rugby and frisbee and re-planted some of my plants :) I am trying to grow some new plants and will post pictures of them if they work! 

 

This week for your learning you have an ‘Under the Sea’ theme. The weekly plan is uploaded as usual but looks slightly different this week. We have changed it so it is slightly more structured and lays out what you should do for each day for the core subjects.

In the maths boxes there are 2 tasks for each day. The power maths is the more important of the two but if you are feeling super sonic then you can have a go at the second activity!

 

The afternoons still run as usual:

Monday and Tuesday – Pick a topic activity from the plan

Wednesday – Science

Thursday – P.E.

Friday – Art/D.T.

 

I hope you enjoy your learning for the week and have fun with your grown ups :)

 

Miss Currant :)

Some brilliant baking has come in already! I wonder what everyone else is making?

Friday 15th May 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have had a lovely week this week and have had lots of fun looking at different foods!

 

For this weeks Art/D.T. project I would like you to continue thinking about food and make something with your families at home. You could bake, you could cook or you could simply help make dinner. Help to weigh out the ingredients and think about how each one is going to make the product better or what function it has in the cooking!

 

Send in pictures of what you make and we will share all the yummy foods that we have been making!

 

Have a brilliant weekend and enjoy going outside!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant tree rubbings sent in! Great work!

Wednesday 13th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

This week we aren’t going to think about flowers in science. We are going to think about trees! I am going to send you on a tree hunt when you are next on your walk!

 

We are going to think about 2 different types of trees: Evergreen and Deciduous. I have attached a video to explain the different to you and also 2 small posters. I would like you to go out on a walk and find 3 evergreen trees and 3 deciduous trees and take rubbings of them in the rubbings box on your worksheet. Make sure that you put the rubbing in the right column and after you have taken the rubbing you can identify what kind of tree it is and write it in the box. If you don’t know what type of tree it is I have attached a link to a tree ID app that you can use to help you identify it.

 

I hope you enjoy this tree hunt and finding different types of trees!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some extra activities that look very fun! What extra activities has everyone else been doing?

Great writing Hawks! Well done!

Wow! Lots of different food listed here and all sorted brilliantly! Well done!

Some brilliant maths being completed! Well done!

Joshua has been very busy this weekend! He did a virtual race challenge called to the moon and back where he had to do 20 of all the following sit ups, press ups, burpees, tuck jumps then ran 2 miles then all again when he got back! He must have worked very hard! Well done Joshua!

Monday 11th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you had a brilliant weekend and enjoyed VE day! What did you do on VE day? Did anyone celebrate and have a socially distant street party?

 

Here is your weekly plan for this week! This week we are thinking about Food (which is all very yummy).

 

This week I have also put up some guidance to help you with your PowerMaths books. This is what you would usually see in your text books before we started working and we would work through this together answering the questions to talk about methods to answers questions before doing them in our books.

The ‘Discover’ questions can be talked about together, thinking about how we can answer them and what information we used.

The ‘Share’ question usually tells us how the previous questions could be answered (providing clarification and consolidation to conversation that would have happened during the ‘Discover question’).

The ‘Think together’ question you can have a go at on your own and then discuss it with an adult after.

Please don’t feel like you have to complete the challenge question. Only try this if you feel ready to do it and understand all the other questions.

 

Please use this resource if it is helpful but if it is not then please don’t feel that you have to use it!

 

I hope you enjoy this weeks work and I will speak to you again on Wednesday! Keep sending in all your photos!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Mrs Butt's Challenge!!

Mrs Butt has come up with a challenge for you all which is very exciting! 

She has been thinking hard about how she can recycle as much as possible and help save the planet. 

Mrs Butt would like you to save as much recycling over the next couple of weeks and build something amazing with it! It could be a new toy, a robot, a tower or anything else you can think of! 

Please send us a picture of what you make and we can share it all with our friends! 

 

From, 

 

Mrs Butt and Miss Currant :) 

Book Token Competition 

Mrs Nolan has an exciting task for you which she has put below! Have a look through and see if you want to take part! 

Brilliant decoration guys!

Friday 8th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

Today is a very special day! It is VE day today and it is the 75th anniversary of VE Day! To mark this special occasion, I have prepared some fun art and DT activities for you to do today!

 

I have attached a PowerPoint which will help you learn about VE day and why we celebrate it. After that, I have attached a variety of activities for you today so you can choose as many or as little to do as you would like!

 

I hope that you enjoy celebrating VE day and I can’t wait to see what you make! I am going to make some of my own decorations today and put them in my window for everyone to see!

 

From,

 

Miss Currant

Some brilliant writing sent in! Keep up the good work Hawks!

Some more brilliant maths sent in! Well done! Keep up the good work!

Some brilliant science work sent in! Great work everyone!

Some brilliant extra activities have been sent in from home! You all look like you are having lots of fun!

VE Day

Just a note to say: I am aware that other teachers have posted VE day work for today. I will be posting VE day work for Hawks on Friday. If you are taking Friday as a bank holiday then please do not feel you have to complete this work! 

Henry, Alex and Betsy have been busy doing some planting! It's very exciting watching them grow!

I was very excited when I found an eggshell outside my front door! I thought I would share it with you. I wonder what sort of bird hatched out of it?

Wednesday 6th May 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have had a good week so far and are enjoying your work and time at home with your families!


Today for science we are going to be looking at flowers again but this time we are going to look at what makes up and flower and what flowers need to survive and grow. Usually I would have done some planting with you and we could watch our plants grow together. If you have the resources to do this at home then you can do so and watch your plant grow with your families! If not don’t worry, it isn’t necessary.

 

I have attached a power point and worksheet for you to do today. I would like you to be able to remember the labels and then write them on rather than just copy them on from the power point. As an extra challenge, could you also write on the function of each plant part underneath the label.

 

I have also attached a video and worksheet for what plants need to grow. Watch the video and then fill in the worksheet. If you can’t print out the worksheet, don’t worry! You could make a fact file on what you learnt from the video!

 

Have fun and I’m looking forward to seeing what you get up to!

 

Miss Currant :)

Mrs. Butt has been busy thinking about her environment and helping out the rubbish men by labelling her bins! Luckily she has Fred the food waste to keep watch!

Monday 4th May 2020

Good Morning Hawks! 

I hope you all had a brilliant weekend and managed to go outside even though it rained lots and lots! 

For this weeks learning you are thinking about the environment which we looked at a little bit when it was Earth Day! I hope you enjoy doing these tasks! Keep sending in what you are doing! It would be great to hear from everyone!

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant puzzles have been sent in! Well done! Very careful cutting and colouring!

Friday 1st May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

Today is our art afternoon and we will be continuing to think about animals! Today I would like you to make a animal puzzle! I have attached instructions on how to make them below and attached pictures of mine :) I had lots of fun making mine and hope you enjoy making yours too! If you would just like to do a picture of the animal and not any scenery behind it then that is fine but make sure you draw your animal nice and big! 

 

Enjoy making your puzzle and enjoy the weekend! 

 

From, 

 

Miss Currant :) 

 

Puzzle Instructions 

1. Get a piece of paper, pencil, pen, pair of scissors and some colouring pens or pencils. 

2. Draw a picture of your favourite animal or animal character (make sure it fills the page if you are not doing any scenery behind it)

3. Go over your pencil lines with pen (you don't have to do this stage but I found it useful) 

4. Colour in your animal

5. Draw the scenery behind it 

6. Go over your pencil scenery lines with pen (you don't have to do this stage but I found it useful)

7. Colour in the scenery 

8. Cut up your picture into as many pieces as you want (the pieces don't have to be square but it might be easier to put them back together if they are! Make sure you don't cut them too small otherwise your puzzle will be super super difficult!)

9. Mix up the pieces 

10. Try to put it back together again! 

 

After you have done all of the stages you could test it on a grown up in your house! If they can do it then you could think of a grown up that you think would enjoy doing it and send it to them (you can think back to when you were writing addresses and see if you can remember how to do it). I have tested mine on my partner and now I am going to send it to my mum and dad! I will post some pictures about how they get on! 

 

 

Picture Instructions:

Some brilliant topic animal activities! So much wildlife from inside your houses!

Penny 

Hi Hawks Class,

 

It is Penny here!  I have been being looked after by Mrs Verrecchia for the last few weeks and we have been helping each other with our home learning. 

 

We have also been having some fun playing in the garden and making friends with a Blackbird who comes to visit us for food everyday.

 

Mrs V keeps showing me all the pictures of your brilliant home learning so keep sending the pictures in. I look forward to seeing them each week. 

 

Here are a couple of pictures of my home learning for you to see.

 

Lots of Love,

Penny

What a lovely garden some of our Hawks have drawn! Well done!

Some super maths has been sent in! Great work!

Some brilliant writing tasks! Well done everyone!

Some brilliant animal factfiles! We'll all be experts when we come back to school! We could make our own animal facts book, just like our favourite part of the books we usually read!

Wednesday 29th April 2020 

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

Today's science activity is all about the plants in your garden! Have a close look at them and see how many you can find! 

It would be lovely to see the gardens that you draw after! 

 

As an extra challenge it would be brilliant if you could label the different plants that you find! 

Have fun searching in your garden! We're lucky it's not raining today! (Yet)

 

From, 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some of our Hawks have been searching for fossils! They look so cool! I wonder what else they saw in the Quarry?

Wow! Some more super spelling and handwriting! Well done!

Monday 27th April 2020 

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

I hope that you had a brilliant weekend and had lots of fun with your families! I spent my weekend doing lots of baking which was very yummy and fun! 

 

I have posted your weekly work below. This week it is all about animals which is exciting! I can't wait to see what you all send in!

Wow! Brilliant Earth Day posters! Well done!

Some brilliant spelling and handwriting practice being done! Well done! Well done to everyone who is using Spelling Shed as well! I have had a look and can see you are working very hard at becoming super spellers!

Friday 24th April 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

Today is Friday so that means it is our Art day!

 

On Wednesday 22nd it was Earth Day. Every year on 22 April, Earth Day is celebrated around the world in over 192 countries. But this annual event is much more than a celebration – it’s an important day to raise awareness about looking after the environment.
If we want to keep our planet clean and safe for years to come, we need to reduce the amount of pollution we produce and fight against climate change. That’s why on Earth Day, over a billion people take part in activities to make the world a healthier place – from conferences and street marches, to art displays and beach clean-ups!

 

To take part I would like you to create an Earth day poster to remind everyone of the 3 important rules to ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’.

 

This means we are reducing the amount of waste we produce, reusing what we can for other purposes and recycling as many different materials we can!

Your poster can look however you would like it to! I have made an example one for inspiration. If you would like to do the same as mine you are welcome to but get your creative hats on too if you would like!

 

I am looking forward to seeing what you produce! I am going to put mine in the window with my rainbow!

Some brilliant topic learning I can see! I wonder what everyone else has been doing?

Great wild plant hunt! You found loads of plants and have drawn some brilliant challenge drawings!

Wow! Everyone is doing such brilliant work! Great job guys!!

Wednesday 22nd April 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you are having a good week so far and are having lots of fun!

 

For your Science this week I am sending you on a hunt (either in your garden or on your next walk). We are thinking about plants in Science now and I want you to see how many of these wild plants you can find when you are next outside! There is an extra challenge at the bottom to draw 2 different plants or flowers that you see when you are outside! Don’t worry if you can’t find them all, some might not grow near you :) 

P.E. will run the same as last term. Please continue to pick a P.E. activity off of the websites/sheets that I sent you last term or choose some Go Noodle videos to do!

 

Enjoy your week and I will talk to you again on Friday!

Miss Currant :) 

Wow! Some fantastic writing today! Well done! What has everyone else been writing?

Monday 20th April 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

Welcome back from your Easter break! I hope you had a brilliant time with your grown-ups and enjoyed the lovely weather that we had! I wonder if anyone saw the Easter bunny hopping around out there?

I have been very busy in my house doing some painting, some sewing and making cards for my family to cheer them up. Please send through any pictures of what you have been doing over Easter!

 

Just like the weeks before the Easter holidays, I have posted your weekly work in the attachment called ‘Week 3’. It runs the same as before and your spellings are ready on spelling shed for you to have a go on.

For the next few weeks we have some new phonics resources! I have attached the link for this on the weekly plan. It is a website called Oxford Owl and there are lots of free games, books and sounds that you can practice on there (adults have a look and then you can pick what you want your child to do that day. It is very similar to the program that we would usually run in school). There is no school login for this site but there is no charge for using it. You only need to register to be able to use it and registering does not take long :) 

 

I will post your science and art later in the week. I can’t wait to see what you are going to create this week! Remember to keep having lots of fun!

What we got up to over Easter!

Our celebration certificate:

Some great pieces of Literacy from some of our Hawks! Well done guys!

Wow! Look at these Easter crafts that everyone has done! They are brilliant! Happy Easter everyone!

Great extra home learning activities Hawks! You all look like you're having a great time!

Friday 3rd April 2020 

Good Morning Hawks and welcome to the last day of the Spring term!! 

 

You are about to start the Easter holidays, and your grown ups can have a break from teaching you! Well done on all of your work this week! You have sent me some really great pieces! I can see you are working very hard and doing some great extra learning at home as well! 

 

Today is Friday so it's your Art task today! Seeing as it's so close to Easter we thought that you could do some Easter art today! Your Art task today has been set by Mrs Duery & Mrs Butt (instructions below this message) who have been missing you all and thinking of some great activities for you. 

 

I hope you enjoy your task and have a fabulous Easter break! You are a brilliant class and I really miss seeing you in school. I look forward to seeing you when school is able to return to normal!

 

Love from, 

 

Miss Currant :) 

 

Mrs Duery: Hi Hawks Class. Here is a picture (and instructions) of the Easter card I made earlier this week. I also wanted to make an Easter Bonnet but didn’t have one at home, so instead, I’ve made an Easter Band. It looks a bit funny but that’s all part of the fun! I would love to see some pictures of you wearing an Easter bonnet or whatever you can make at home. I am missing you all so much and can’t wait to see you again when we come back to school! Have a wonderful Easter Love from Mrs Duery ( don’t eat too much chocolate xx)

Mrs Butt has come up wit this brilliant card for you to make! If you are feeling super creative you could try and make both!

Great work writing to a landmark! I wonder which other landmarks everyone wrote to?

Great work looking at your house and making a family flag!

Great work on materials and their properties! I can see you had fun testing all of the materials! I wonder how everyone else got on?

A very detailed news round report! Great work! It sounds like there was a lot about animals!

Wednesday 1st April 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you’ve had a good week so far! Your work so far has been brilliant, and your postcards and letters have really made me smile!

 

Today I have put up you new science work. It relates to the same topic as last week and we will start a new science project after Easter 

 

For your P.E. please choose from the activities that I put up last week. Please remember that it is your grown-ups choice whether you go outside to do your P.E. or if you stay inside.

 

Have fun with your science and keep sending me your work!

 

From,

Miss Currant :) 

Some Hawks have been working hard drawing and writing about their compasses! Great work!

I can see you have spent lots of time making this a beautiful piece of work! Brilliant job! You have spotted lots of parts of your neighbours house!

What lovely postcards! These have really made me smile! Maybe I will be able to visit the Radstock Museum one day!

What a very lucky queen we have to be receiving such beautifully written letters! I'm sure they will put a smile on her face and keep her happy whilst she is at home with her corgi's

Monday 30th March 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have had a lovely weekend filled with lots of fun activities!

I did some baking and some painting and even got to watch Despicable Me 3 (lucky me!).

 

I have uploaded your weekly learning plan on to the website. It runs the same as last week. Please select 1 numeracy, 1 literacy, 1 reading and 1 spelling task each day. 1 topic task on Monday and 1 topic task on Tuesday and I will add a science and P.E. task on Wednesday and an art task on Friday.

This we be the format each week until we can all be back together again!

 

When using the links on the weekly learning plan, please note that they will not work when you click on them on the PDF version of the plan but will work on the Microsoft Word version of the plan. Sorry about that, I have tried all I can but cannot make it work on the PDF.

 

Enjoy your learning and keep sending me pictures of your brilliant work! It all looks brilliant and I can see that you are all showing your grown-ups how well you can learn in a different environment!

 

Keep going!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some of our Hawks have been busy finding out about their families! Great work!

Our beautiful rainbows!

Friday 27th March 2020 

Good morning Hawks!

 

All of your work so far looks brilliant! I am very proud of you all working so hard at home!

 

For your art task today I would like you to create a rainbow to put up in your window at home. Children around the UK are doing this to make walks outside more fun whilst we are having time at home with your grown-ups! You can make your rainbow out of anything you would like (I just used pencils and felt tips for mine but will try and add something else to it) and maybe could use more than 1 medium to make it!

When you next go out on a walk with your grown-ups see how many rainbows you can spot in people’s windows!

 

Have a brilliant weekend and enjoy the nice sunny weather!

 

From,

 

Miss Currant :) 

Great writing work! You have looked at the differences between yours and a friends house!

Great data detective work! You have recorded your findings brilliantly! I wonder how many other detectives we have in the class?

Some brilliant self-portraits from some of our Hawks! I wonder if you can guess who it is? (Before you read the name)

Some Hawks have been very busy being material detectives! What else has everyone been looking at?

What brilliant stories sent in by some of our Hawks! They have included lots of their family members! Well done! I wonder what other stories we will hear?

Wednesday 25th March 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have enjoyed your days so far! I have seen some brilliant work come in and can see that you are working hard at home!

 

Today is Wednesday so it is your science afternoon! I have attached some science resources to use to do some work on ‘Everyday Materials’. Before you start, tell your grown up everything you can remember about everyday materials. Can you remember all of them?

After, you can go through the PowerPoint with your grown up and complete your worksheet

On Thursday I would like you to do your P.E. afternoon. For your exercise/P.E., I would like you to either do some P.E. activities outside with your grown-ups or you can visit: https://family.gonoodle.com/ and pick some of your favourite videos.

It is your grown-ups decision whether they would like you out of the house or not. If they decide you can go out of the house, this website has some ideas for P.E. games that can be done if adults are stuck.
https://www.thepeshed.com/ 

I have also attached some resources to our class page to use for different P.E. ideas.

 

Have a great next few days and keep sending in your work for us to celebrate!

 

Miss Currant :) 

WOW! Look at these postcards that our classmates have made! Beautiful work, I'm sure that your relative will love this postcard! Send in a picture of anymore that have been done and we can all celebrate each others home learning!

Thank you very much to a very helpful grown up who has brought to my attention that none of the links work on the PDF of 'Week 1 Plan'. I have added the word document version back on to the website, on which the links all work! Sorry about that everybody! Any more problems like this then please let the office known and I will try my best to fix them! 

Miss Currant :) 

Well done to these Hawks who have done a fantastic WANTED posters! Brilliant work! I can't wait to see what else everyone has done!

Monday 23rd March 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you had a brilliant weekend and had fun out in the sun! I have been enjoying some lovely walks and counting the rainbows in people's windows! 

 

I have posted your weekly work in a document called ‘Week 1 Plan’. Here you can choose 1 literacy task, 1 maths task, 1 phonics task and 1 reading task per day. For today I particularly like hit the button (number bonds) and writing a letter or postcard to a family member. You could tell them what you have been doing and ask them how they are.

As on the weekly timetable, I would like you to pick a topic activity on Monday and Tuesday for your afternoon learning and these can also be found on your ‘Week 1 Plan’ overview sheet.

On a Wednesday I will post a science task. On Thursday you can do a P.E. Task (I will post more about this closer to the time). On a Friday I would like you to either do another topic task or I will post an art task. If you are feeling super-duper then you can have a go at both on a Friday!

 

I have uploaded some Numbots logins for you so that you can access the Numbots website to practice your maths. For today I suggest grown ups have a look at the Numbots website and familiarise yourself with it so that you know what they are going on. In future I will try and suggest areas of Numbots to focus on alongside suggesting some areas of your power maths books to have a look on (don't worry if you have already started these! That's great!). I have also sent out Spelling Shed logins which will allow you to practice some extra spellings (these will replace the sheet that I sent out this week).

 

You should have had an email from Kilmersdon regarding live phonics sessions that are being streamed by Ruth Miskin Phonics which you can watch daily to keep up with your phonics practice.

Alongside this ‘Phonics Play’ have made their website free whilst we are doing home learning and I have attached the login details they have provided so you can go on their website as well.

 

If you would like to listen to some stories, Audible have made their website available for all and I have attached the link below to allow you to engage with some brilliant literature!
https://stories.audible.com/start-listen

 

Enjoy your home learning and I can’t wait to see what you create! Please send in any work to the school office and I can celebrate your home learning with you!

Miss Currant

Friday 20th March 2020

 

Good morning Hawks!

 

I hope you are all having fun at home with your grown ups! I have put together some activities for you to do together whilst we are not at school. 

Seeing as it is a Friday today, I am going to put some resources up for your adults to get familiar with before learning can commence again on Monday. 

Whilst your adults are looking through the resources, I have put up your spellings for you to do and have put a link to the video that we were looking at in Literacy a few weeks ago. I would like you to describe the video to your adult before you watch it together and see how much of it you can remember and how accurate you were for when you do watch it with your adult. Once you have watched it, please create a WANTED poster for the men with a couple of sentences telling me why they are wanted. 

 

I hope you have a lovely day and a good weekend and you will hear from me again on Monday! 

 

From, 

 

Miss Currant :)

Grown-ups above is the link to the video that we watched. Please open the link and then scroll down to the video 'Ruckus'. The picture is of 2 men on a WANTED poster. 

 

We conducted a science experiment today when we started to think about everyday materials. Miss Currant tested our thinking when she showed us how strong paper could be when it was folded correctly. Have a look at our science experiment below and see if you can do it at home! We managed 23 (heavy) books!

Spring 1

Hawks will continue to have P.E. on a Monday afternoon and a Friday morning for this half term. 

 

Our topic for this half term is Isambard Kingdom Brunel. We have some visitors coming in to run a workshop for us soon and will be doing projects in class to learn all about his accomplishments. 

 

We learnt lots on our trip to the Roman Baths! Have a look at what we got up to!

Hawks have had a very busy Autumn Term! They have all been working very hard in all their subjects. Below are some pictures to show you what we have done.

We have been busy being architects in choosing!
We have been making patterns in maths!
