Aqua Class 1st June 2020
Hello Pupils & Parents of Aqua Class,
Welcome to a new half term! We hope you had a nice week and are keeping well at home. We will be putting more new activities on the school website this week to help you keep learning while you are at home. Remember, the activities on the website should be spread out over the week, try to do two activities each day. If you also have time to do some reading, this would be great! Some of these activities may seem tricky at first, so remember to ask an adult to help you. Some of the activities will have worksheets that will be posted to you and for other activities you can use your purple home school work book, or type on a computer.
This week’s pack of activities includes 11 learning sessions:
Maths – 2 sessions
English – 2 sessions
Independence – 1 session
Science – 1 session
Art – 1 session
Food Tech – 1 session
PSHE – 1 session
Computing – 1 session
PE – 2 sessions
As your child completes the activities, feel free to use the email addresses below with any comments as to how he/she has been getting on with the work, as well as pictures of any tasks your child may have achieved (but please do not send pictures of your child, only the work!). It may be easier if you email the teacher you speak to each week:
Amy - firstname.lastname@example.org
Sarah - email@example.com
This way we can have two-way communication and your child may feel more of a sense of purpose knowing that we will look at the work they have done and comment on it over the phone the following week.
