Writing - Short Story

I hope that you enjoyed the Indigo Flamingo poem. What I want you to do today is create something similar. I want you to write a short story. You need to choose an animal and change something about it. The thing you change needs to be the center of the problem in the story, like the flamingo's colour.

Maths - Prodigy

This week we would like all children to access prodigy.

prodigygame.com

For those who may not know it is an online game - that works on tablets and phones - that only allows children to progress if they answer maths questions. 

I can also choose the focus of the questions to relate to the work being covered by home learning.

 

My hope is that as I can track these answers, using the website,  I will be able to use them as an assessment tool. This will allow me to match your child's learning to the stage they are at. I will be able to see how much the children can remember each Friday by using Prodigy. 

 

So today login, as I can see who has accessed the site each day. Have a go at a few questions. If you do not know your login please email me for your details. 

 

 

Foundation - Art

 

Todays Art is a drawing by an artist which the children in Morpurgo love to work with, Lewis class we hope you enjoy too. Today we are going to draw a flamingo and the video link will help you to do this - our artist colours it pink, maybe you will choose indigo.
