Weekly Whole School Theme

Each week in school we have a theme for our assemblies for that week. We thought it'd be good to continue with this whole school theme whilst children are learning at home. Each week there will be resources on this page based on the theme. 

 

 

This week’s whole school theme is Summer!

 

This is our last whole school theme before the summer holidays and although some of us have been at home for quite some time now we are all very proud of your achievements this year. It might not be the summer holiday some of you were expecting but we hope you enjoy it all the same.

 

The activities below will help you have a fun and safe summer.
Take care and have fun everyone.

This week’s theme is linked to Plastic Free July 2020.

 

Throughout the month of July, the U.K will be taking part in Plastic Free July.  We all use a vast amount of plastics throughout the day, which can accumulate into tons and tons of waste sent to landfill.

 

There are lots of ways to go plastic-free this July. Here are some ideas and activities to keep you busy:

On the 24th June, the U.K celebrated National Writing Day. A vast number of professional writers have taken time out of their busy schedules to put together a range of activities for your children at home.

This week's Whole School Theme is Art 15/06/20

 

This week’s theme is Art and I have chosen one of my favourite artists for you to learn about. The artist we are focusing on is Giuseppe Arcimboldo. He was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish and books. You can learn more about him be reading the PowerPoint presentation below.

I have included lots of different activities that everyone will be able to do. Most of all I hope you have fun creating your own portraits using real fruit, vegetables and flowers that you have at home.

Have fun and be creative.
Mrs Marshall

This week’s Whole School Theme is the Environment 08/06/20

 

The environment is something that affects us all from the environment where we live to all the countries around the world.

This week we are going to look at how we can look after our environment to make sure it stays healthy and projected for years to come. One of the largest environmental problem our planet is facing at the moment is plastic pollution. This week we will look at how we can reduce and reuse the plastic that we already have and hopefully help make the world a cleaner place to live.

 

Below are PowerPoints and activities to support us in our learning this week.

Have a lovely week everyone and stay safe.

Mrs Marshall

 

This week's Whole School Theme is SHAVUOT.  

Shavuot is known as the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost in English. It is a Jewish holiday that occurs on the sixth day of the Hebrew month of Sivan, meaning it may fall between May 15 and June 14. This year Shavuot starts on 28th May and finishes on the 30th May.

 

To follow our theme this week, start by looking at the Powerpoint that tells you all about the Jewish festival. There is one for EYFS/KS1 and one for KS2. Then there are lots of different activities for you and your family to have a go at. Why not decorate the house in Shavuot bunting? Make your own Star of David? Or you could have a go at making some authentic Shavuot cuisine by following some of the recipes using the link below:

We would love to see anything that you get up to so please send any photographs to your child’s teacher via Class Dojo.

A question from Mrs Hellewell.

Week beginning 18th May. 

 

Ramadan began on the 23rd of April and will finish on Saturday the 23rd May. 

The date for the start of Ramadan is slightly different each year, depending on the position of the moon.

Once Ramadan starts, Muslims should not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. This usually continues for thirty days, but sometimes twenty-nine days.

Fasting is supposed to teach Muslims about patience and spiritual things.

It is a time for Muslims to think about how the poor and homeless suffer without lots of food, it helps Muslims to be more obedient, and less greedy.

 

During Ramadan, Muslims ask to be forgiven for their sins, and they pray for help in stopping them from doing bad things. Muslims believe Ramadan is the month in which the first verses of the Qur'an were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.

 

Here are a selection of resources that you can use to learn about Ramadan. Please send photos of your work to your class teacher.

Week Beginning 11th May 

It's DEAF AWARENESS WEEK this week. 

Lots of you have been learning to sign. We use Makaton in school to help some of our children too. One of our School Values is ' We are inclusive' and having a tool such as using sign language ensures that we are all able to communicate with each other. 

 

To follow our theme this week, start by looking at the powerpoint that tells you all about Deaf awareness week. 

Then there are a range of different activities that the children could do based on the theme. We'd love to see anything that you get up to and we'll post it on this page and our Facebook page. Please send to your child's class teacher via Class Dojo.

 

Why not have a go sending a message to your teacher or to a friend using sign language. It's a fantastic skill to develop.
