You should have received 2 reading books from school.
Our current Topic is Europe. Our learning objective is to compare the human (man-made) and physical (natural) features of different countries. A virtual holiday can be taken where you use the virtual guides by ‘Sygic Travel’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyV_0prNVVc) to visit different cities. Make a list of the human features and physical features of Rome and one other European city.
Choose a household object and recreate using different mediums and techniques. Create a surreal (with a twist on reality e.g. the melting clocks we did in class by Salvidor Dali- The Persistence of Memory) picture of it.
If the weather is poor, Gonoodle.com has dance videos and games for children.
During this time, it is important you get fresh air and sunlight; therefore, playing in the garden is important. Anything which raises their heart rate or practises hand eye co-ordination is great.
Choose an object, write it down secretly, describe it to someone without using the name, can they guess the object?
Build a den outside if it is nice weather
Learn walking on sunshine and sing it as a family. Teach a younger sibling, or even a pet or teddy bear, how to sing it.
Tuesday 17th March - 10.00am
The children are all safe and well and currently enjoying some fresh air in a park. The decision has been made to return home today but at this moment it is unsure as to what time it'll be - probably later this afternoon. We are taking advice from the travel company who we are booked with and they are currently trying to re arrange some activities for the rest of today.
The Planet Hollywood booking for this evening has been moved to 4.00pm and they will set off for home straight after the meal. At the moment they are estimating getting back to school between 8.00 and 9.00pm tonight but we will update once they leave London.
They have had a great morning at the Tower of London and are going to Hyde Park this afternoon.
