Well done to Swaledale for another fantastic week of home learning.
This week our learning was inspired by a photo Daisy shared showing us how the bulbs we planted in the Autumn had bloomed into beautiful daffodils.
The children have enjoyed reading the famous poem ‘Daffodils’ by William Wordsworth and have written their own acrostic daffodil poems. Many children have enjoyed spotting daffodils during their daily exercise and have had a go at creating their own beautiful flowers. We have also explored the different parts of a flower.
This Easter we have a whole school challenge linked to plants. Our challenge is to use the free plant identification app ‘PlantNet’ to find and identify 5 plants or trees either in your garden or during your daily walk.
All the super Swaledale scientists have been busy continuing with last weeks ‘Science with Ice’ experiment and exploring this weeks ‘Science Spinners’ experiment. We have been particularly impressed by the way they have worked scientifically using their observational skills and concluded their results. Please keep the photos and videos coming. If you would like to try these experiments, please visit https://pstt.org.uk/
In Maths, the children have continued their work on Fractions using the White Rose activities. These can be on the White Rose Webpage https://whiterosemaths.com/.
It has also been wonderful to see pictures and videos of everyone enjoying themselves baking, making obstacle courses, completing Lego challenges and being outdoors.
It is hard to believe it is the end of the Spring term. We are very proud of each and every one of you. Thank you to all the grown-ups too for your fantastic support during these unprecedented times. We will not be setting any work over the Easter break and there is no expectation for you to post on seesaw. However, if there is something you would like to share we would be happy to see it and will respond after the holidays.
We wish you all a very Happy Easter
Mrs Heard & Mrs Norman
