Home Learning task


Good morning Hazel Class!


What a beautiful sunny day it was yesterday, I hope you recorded it on your weather chart? Mr Mrutu, one of the teachers at Kikundi Primary in Morogoro, messaged me today and said it was grey and rainy in Morogoro and that they are expecting thunderstorms tomorrow. It is still a lot warmer that the UK though. Yesterday it was 11 degrees centigrade in Malvern and in Morogoro it was 23 degrees. 


Today I would like you to get outside in your garden and look for signs of Spring. You can draw what you see in your English book and label your picture. Can you write a few sentences to describe what changes happen during Spring? Use as many interesting adjectives as you can and don't forget your capital letters and full stops as well. If you can see any plants growing think about what they need to grow well and describe the perfect conditions for a plant to grow. 


Remember to read for 15 minutes and you could go on TTrockstars and challenge me to a duel! You can also play lots of games on Education City if you are allowed to use the computer but make sure you check with your grown-ups first!


Have a good day and stay safe.


Mrs Parton





Monday- Home Learning


Good morning Hazel Class!


I hope you have all had a good weekend and managed to get outside for a little while in the lovely Spring sunshine yesterday. Have you noticed any signs of Spring around you? Here in Malvern there are lots of trees starting to bud and some beautiful Spring flowers poking their way through the grass outside the window of my new flat. Last night Mr Parton and I went for a long walk around our new home and the birds were all singing loudly. Listen out for the birds in your garden if you can. 


If you are staying at home there are lots of online exercise activities you could try, Joe Wicks is broadcasting a daily exercise class at 9am and Cosmic Kids yoga has some lovely routines you can easily follow.


Have you chosen two activities to do today? Don't forget to look at the grid on the inside of your Maths and English books and pick two things to do to keep you busy at home. Remember to use your neatest writing in those books and write down what you have been up to. You could also stick photographs in or draw and label pictures. I am looking forward to seeing your books when we get back to school and I hope it won't be too long before I can see you all again as well.


I would also like you to start collecting information about the weather each day and there is an idea about how you could present you information below. You could decide to use a different method like a tally chart or a block chart. If you can find out what the weather is like in Morogoro, Tanzania as well then you can compare our two countries. Kikundi Primary School is also closed at the moment and the teachers have been messaging me to ask if we are all ok. They also send their love to you all. 


Don't forget to read for 15 minutes today, you could write about what you read in your English book. I know you all picked some long chapter books from the library which might take a long time to read but don't give up! What do you think will happen in your book? Who is the main character? Is there a goody and a baddie in the story? Is this book similar to anything else you have read?


That's all for today. Make sure you are helping your grown-ups around the house and being polite and well behaved!
