Today is a day for feeling good, for celebrating and for thinking of all those amazing people that gave their lives to help us.  Today is VE Day marking 75 years since the end of WW2.  If you are celebrating in your house or in your street today share your celebrations with us on Tapestry.  Can you make some decorations for your home or will you help your family cook a special meal?  Have a wonderful day everyone.

For today's Maths challenge we would like you to play a game with a Maths focus.  It could be a game with numbers in, a dice or spinner, it could be a card game, or a shape game.  Play your game and see if you can tell us about all the Maths knowledge you had to use when playing.  We played Snakes & Ladders.  We had to count the dots on a dice to see what number of spaces we could move, we had to then count spaces to move our counter.  We recognised and said the number we landed on each time out loud.  Then we found out who came first, second and third (I came third in our game).


Not only will you practise lots of Maths skills playing your game, you will also have a great time.  Send us some pictures on Tapestry of the game you chose to play & most importantly have fun!

For today’s challenge, Brook and I have been looking at our home learning plan for this week! We have read the book by Jill Murphy – Whatever Next on the youtube link below: 


Brook and I also made up our own Space Story together, Brook flew to space and he met an alien called Max, he was green and hairy and he liked to eat Spider Sandwiches!


We wanted to make a Space Rocket, but all our recycling was collected this morning! We had a good think about how we could make a Space Rocket with other things in our home!


Can you build a Space Rocket like Brook’s too? Brook has been hiding out in there for a while now and has been speaking to his other astronaut friends through his play telephone.


Who will you speak to inside your Space Rocket? What will you see out of the window? Where will you travel to? What will you find when you get there? Who will you meet? How will you fly home?

Can you join Miss Garwood and Brook in reading Penny Dale’s, Ten In the Bed? Can you try and retell the story in you own version like Brook has? Can you use your toys / teddys to help you?


Do you have another story at home you like you can re-tell together?

Welcome to Term 5.  We hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday.

Our challenge today is a creative one!

Can you make a picture using objects from the garden, from your daily walk or your house to make a picture?  I made a snail out of shells that we collected on our daily walk, a house out of playing cards, a cat out of toys and a happy face out of K'nex (see photo ideas on Tapestry).  When you have made your picture make up a story about it and tell it to a family member.

Have fun being creative today :)
