We have enjoyed finding out about the shops that were in Knighton in Victorian times. We used some of the pictures from Mary Cadwallader’s book showing what Victorian Knighton was like. We created a graphs on HWB showing our favourite Victorian shops and posters to advertise them. Here are some of our posters.
Happy New Year! Welcome back to the start of a new term and new year, as Friday 7th January is a confirmed home schooling day, here are a few activities that I would like your child to complete and email pictures of their work to me.
Activity 1 – Maths – Time – Can you recite all of the months of the year? Check with an adult to see that you have included them all.
Write a list of each of the months of the year and key events that occur in those months to help you to remember them. For example…
January – 10th Jane’s birthday
February – 1st Chinese New Year
14th St Valentines Day
18th Comic Relief
and so on…..
Activity 2 Literacy – Writing – To write a report detailing what you had for Christmas. You can write about your favourite present in detail or a paragraph describing each present. Suggested things to include in your report – a description of your present (s), what does it look, feel, smell, sound or taste like, who gave it to you and why it is so special. You may also wish to draw a picture of your present.
Activity 3 – New Year Resolutions – At the start of the new year people like to make ‘resolutions’ or goals that they would like to set for themselves. Think of five goals that you would like to achieve in 2022. Write them in a list and explain how you are going to try and achieve them. For example…
Goal 1 – Become a better reader – I am going to go on Nessy for 10 minutes each day.
Last week we attended a music workshop with Jim Elliott where we had the opportunity to listen to him play a variety of musical instruments. Jim taught let us use some of the instruments and we learnt a piece of music which we enjoyed performing to Mrs Fielding and Mrs Wood.
