Work of the week - Friday 26th June 2020


We are so proud of all the work that the children have been completing whilst they have been at home. Here are just some examples from this week:


Izaan and Summaya are always busy at home and this week is no exception. They have been bug hunting in the garden and they found a ladybird. They kept it as a pet and even named it Katy. They took good care of it as Summaya has been doing some research online about how to take care of a ladybird as a pet. After couple of days they let it go back to its original habitat in the garden and were amazed to see the ladybird in the garden where they left it the following day. 


Also as the theme was about ladybirds. Izaan has been listening to' What the Ladybird Heard' by Julia Donaldson online. He enjoyed listening to Julia Donaldson singing a song about the ladybird too. He also coloured in the ladybird and practised learning his colours and counting the spots on the ladybird.


Summaya has been doing some instructional writing on google classroom. She wrote her first draft for Miss Reilly and decided to follow the recipe at home. She even made her own chocolate fruit skewers.
