week beginning 8.1.21

This week, the timetable is going to look a little bit different in terms of what subjects we will be covering each day due to 2 special days: Safer Internet Day on Monday and Chinese New Year on Friday.  There will still be 3 Zoom sessions each day at the same times. We will be reading a non-fiction text called What is that Building? We will be looking at unusual buildings around the world and thinking about the ideas behind their designs. We will be answering comprehension questions and creating our own designs and writing about them. The children will be doing some Lego building challenges and they will also be using things like craft sticks (or lollipop sticks) pegs and card to build structures. Also maybe playdough and straws or craft thin sticks to structures. I know a lot of the children really enjoy building their own creations, so I have tried to make as many practical activities as possible for them. No problem if you can't get hold of the things I mentioned then you can use other things around the house. I have put a document on to give you some idea of the sort of thing I mean.
