Week 2

 

We would love to see some of your home learning taking place. Please feel free to email photos to school at info@st-josephs-pri.derbyshire.sch.uk

English

 

Our focus author this half term was Ian Whybrow. Amongst other stories he co-authored Harry and his Bucket Full of Dinosaurs. Please listen to a reading of this below.

 

Once you have listened to the story, print the dinosaur page border and write about the activities the dinosaurs did with Harry.  Your child could make a list of these activities, writing a one word label for each or choose a couple of activities to write a sentence or two about. Completed work can be stuck into home learning books or take a photo and email to school.

R.E

 

Please visit YouTube to view our word of the week video on 'Sacrifice'. Reflect by praying the 'Collage Cross Prayer'. You will need; a cross outline, small pieces of coloured paper and a glue stick. Take a moment to think about the sacrifice Jesus made for us. Take a piece of coloured paper and stick it inside the cross template to represent the sacrifice he made.

 

In R.E we are looking at 'The Easter Story'. Please download the document below to share the story with your child. Once you have read the story together print and cut out the pictures provided. I would like children to order the pictures in the sequence of the story and label them with a couple of words or a sentence for each picture. Please encourage your child to write as much as possible. If it helps, you can break the activity up into stages. For example, order the pictures first then add writing after having a break. Completed work can be stuck in home learning books.

P.E

 

Don't forget to go in the garden and play with equipment you have at home - trikes, skipping, hopping,jumping, running and climbing are all good forms of exercise for the whole body.
