We have created a timetable of suggested home learning activities for each week. You might prefer to print these activities or to write their work in the yellow 'Home Learning' workbooks that we sent home in October. Please upload any work that your child does to their Seesaw account so we can be updated on what they are doing. If you have any queries about logging in to Seesaw, please send your child's class teacher an email. Please remember to do as much as you are able to do and work at a pace that suits your family life at this time. Our priority is for you and your family to keep safe.   


This a guide for our end of year expectations in writing. Talk through the key areas, some we have not covered yet. When children are writing, perhaps ask them to use it, focusing on one of the key areas at a time. When their work is complete they can use it to see if there are any areas they could improve and use this as a focus for next time. This is tricky so will need support to be effective. Areas of focus when writing could match our grammar focus from the previous and/or current week.

This week we are continuing to learn about Claude Monet, so staying with impressionism but thinking about cityscapes. Read the powerpoint and discuss, colours, time of day weather, seasons, similarities and differences. Monet enjoyed painting the same scenes many times, he liked to capture the changing light. 

Look at these two images of the same scene - Houses of Parliament 1902           Houses of Parliament stormy sky
