Summer Term 2 in Emerald Class – ‘Dinosaurs’

Hello Emerald Class and welcome to Summer Term 2! It’s very different to our usual start to a new term as we will be learning at home with our families. It’s tricky not being able to see each other and our friends at school but you’re doing such an important job by staying at home and keeping everybody safe and well. I’m very proud of you all!

To keep you busy and having fun, you will be able to find lots of interesting ideas for home learning on the school website. I will also continue to post on Sunday evenings a weekly home learning timetable so you can help your brains to get super big and ready for when we go back to school!

These activities are to give your parents and carers ideas and are for guidance – you can choose to do them all or a few that fit into your new routine at home. We hope that you find these activities stress free, creative and enjoyable! Remember, if you are proud of something you have created at home, send photos to the school email so we can share them with your friends on the blog page.

I’m really looking forward to seeing you all again when we can go back to school but until then, be kind to your families, have fun with your home learning and stay safe :)

Our new topic for Summer Term 2 is ‘Dinosaurs’.We will become palaentologists, dressing up and using tools at home to discover fossils and bones. We will go on a hunt for dinosaur eggs and think about which baby dinosaur could be inside. I wonder how we could help the egg to hatch? We will have lots of writing opportunities such as; labelling dinosaurs, predicting what is inside the egg, writing instructions on how to care for an egg, writing a dinosaur fact file and creating a dinosaur story. On Tuesday and Thursday story times (found on the home learning page) I will be reading lots of fun dinosaur books such as ‘Dinosaur Roar’, ‘How do Dinosaurs say Goodnight?’, ‘Tom and the Island of Dinosaurs’ and ‘Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs’.

 To help with our physical development we will be doing daily workouts with Joe Wick on YouTube and Lance’s Wednesday Weekly Workout and notice how our bodies change as we exercise.
