Summer Holiday Home Learning

We would like all the children to be happy and well rested when they return in September, ready to begin another academic year. Their emotional wellbeing is so important; therefore, we are only providing you with a few activities.

Painted rocks, Summer, beach, flip flops, Awesome Summer Rocks ...

Paint / decorate a pebble

You can be as creative as you like. Have a look at the website below for some fun design ideas.

https://www.familydaystriedandtested.com/awesome-easy-rock-painting-ideas/.

Bring your pebble to school on 7th September 2020. We will be creating a very special path in our wildlife area using all your pebbles.

‘All About Me’ Double Page Spread

We would like all children to complete a double page spread about themselves. Use a piece of A3 paper (or two pieces of A4 stuck together) and add information to share with your new teacher so they can learn more about you. Children will see an example of a double page spread when they meet their new teacher on Monday 20th July or Tuesday 21st July. If your child is not in school on these days, you will find some examples below.

All classes will be looking at and using the double page spread in the first week back of school in September, so make sure you bring yours into school on Monday 7th September 2020.

Details can be found here … https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for their continued support this year, particularly during the unprecedented times in the Summer term. We are incredibly proud of all the children and we cannot wait to welcome them back in September.

Have a wonderful Summer.

Hello Wonderful Swifts,

Every Monday I will set your phonics, English and maths work for the week. All the resources you need will be at the bottom of this webpage. Don’t forget to look at the ‘family challenge’ activities on the website as well. The maths and English activities are the most important things for you to complete, but you may enjoy one (or more) of the family challenges.

Parents/carers can now email me at swift@wicklewood.norfolk.sch.uk with any questions, and you can send me one piece of work a week that you are proud of. All emails must be from a parent email account. Thank you for your song requests for our ‘Swift Class Happiness’ playlist. There is still time for you to send me your favourite songs to add.

Stay safe

Miss Harvey 😊
