Have a lovely Half Term Holkham Class!
Good Morning Holkham,
Next week you won’t have a ‘Home Learning Grid’ as it will be half term, however, you can still use this week’s grid or access learning resources from The Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize which they are adding to daily. That being said, you have all worked so hard it is very important that you have a good rest. Please make time to relax and enjoy quality company of your family.
For previous learning support on our English, Maths, Science and Topic focusses, have a look at the Holkham Class Blog 18/05/20.
I know it’s the holidays but it is still important to read for 10 minutes every day with your grown ups. This is quality time for you to spend enjoying reading with an adult or older sibling. J. K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter novels once said ‘If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book yet‘. I agree, but would also add, that maybe it doesn’t have to be a book. You could read a comic, magazine, ebook, newspaper – it is up to you.
Remind your grown ups to challenge you with comprehension questions at the end of each page (comprehension question can be found in previous blogs or online). Don’t forget that if you would like additional reading comprehension resources you can find some here… Reading Booklets
David has been working hard on creating a diagram of the human muscles. I think it’s really descriptive. I’ve never really though about the muscles in my shine being responsible for my foot going up and down!
Borislav has been busy this week working on reading an analogue clock in Maths. Listing his likes, dislikes, similarities and questions from our story text ‘Roman’s have conquered’. Practising his spelling and researching Roman roads. Well done!
Logan has been very busy using his new lightbox to practise his letter and number formation. What a clever idea! I think we might need to try and get some of these gadgets for school. Well done Logan!
A note for grown ups
With school potentially reopening to some pupils from June 1st. Children in the year groups who have not been selected by the government, such as the children in Holkham Class, might start to feel frustrated they can’t also return or worried about returning in the future. I found a nice bank of resources and conversation starters on Young Minds that you might want to use over half term to support your children.
There are ideas for ideas for extra activities from the National Education Union on last Monday’s blog if you would like to have a look at them…Holkham Class Blog 18/05/20.
Thank you so much to everyone in Holkham Class and your grown ups – we’re not just a class; we’re a community. I couldn’t be more proud to be your Teacher. I miss you all immensely. Have a lovely half term together. Relax, reflect, recharge and make memories.
Stay safe and well,
