Home Learning – Berwick Class

 

On Thursday 4th March it is World Book Day. This year’s theme is ‘Share a Story’
All pupils and staff are very welcome to dress up as a character from a book for the day and we would love to see our pupils who are learning at home join in too!
Please share any photographs with us by 4pm on Thursday to be included in our Facebook post. You can share via Twitter/Facebook (please feel free to share via inbox if you prefer) or email castle.youtube@castle.ncea.org.uk

Planning – Week Beginning 1.3.21

Please attempt at least 1 or 2 activities every day

Some activities maybe repeated to ensure your child is confident with the task, this would happen in school as well

Parents – can you write on your child’s work to say how they have done e.g. no help, spoken help, confident work. Have a think about what their next steps could be

If you do not have the ingredients to make the recipe (don’t worry there may not be a recipe every week) – cook something different e.g. fairy cakes, rice crispy buns, or help to make the evening meal. If you do not have the materials to make the art/craft activity – draw a picture instead.
