Half term update

Good evening parents, We know you are keen to hear what will be happening with schools in coming weeks. As soon as I am able, I will share any information.
In the meantime, please note there will be a break from home learning over half term. Please refer to Oak Academy or BBC Bitesize if you want some work for children or use the packs sent home in brown envelopes. May I wish you all a pleasant bank holiday. Stay safe.

Mrs. Manning’s Outdoor opportunity-Wednesday

It looks like it will be another lovely day so go outside and try to photograph a creature. It could be a bird or an insect or mini beast. It will br tricky because they move a lot and quickly so you will need to be as still and quiet as possible. If you manage a good photo be proud.
Good luck
Mrs. Manning

Mrs. Manning’s Outdoor Opportunity – Monday

The Japanese Art of Hapa-Zome.
 Hapa-Zome is the Japanese art of leaf dye. You will need:
some cotton fabric if possible – something like an old cut up bed sheet or t shirt  is ideal but do NOT cut anything up unless your grown up says so ! Kitchen roll will do if you don’t have any fabric. 
A mallet or rolling pin or  stone about the size of your hand
A collection of leaves or flowers.
Lay the leaves on to your piece of fabric or kitchen towel and cover them with another piece of kitchen towel. Then hammer carefully all over the leaves for a few minutes with your mallet or rolling pin and when you remove the paper towel and leaf debris you should have an imprint of the leaf on your fabric. Experiment and see if you can make a pattern.
Have a good day’
Mrs. Manning

Monday – Mrs Manning’s Outdoor Opportunity

Mrs Manning says…

Hope you all had a good weekend. Did anyone make a bird feeder? If you did put photos on Facebook.

Today we are doing bark rubbings. Take some paper and crayons outside ( wax crayons work best if you have any ). Put the paper against the bark of the tree and rub the crayon backwards and forwards and you will see the pattern of the tree emerge. You can use one colour or different colours and if you have no trees you can do it on your decking or patio or with leaves. When you have finished make a note of where in the garden your rubbing or rubbings were from and keep them safe because you will need them later in the week !!

Keep Safe

Mrs Manning’s Open Air Opportunities

Mrs Manning says….

Go outside with a skipping rope or on your trampoline or if you don’t have either of these do star jumps. Whilst you are jumping count in 2’s or 3’s or 4’s or 5’s or 6’s or 7’s or 8’s or 9’s or 10’s. All great practice for you times tables whilst keeping fit. Challenge yourself with the harder ones and do some every day. You’ll soon notice the improvement.
