Masked reader Wednesday

Password is the usual school password.


Listen to the story of the Gruffalo being read aloud using the link below. This is a very famous story and one of my favourites. I am sure you have heard it lots of times before.

What happens in this story? Who are the characters? Where is the story set? Is the Gruffalo a good character? How do you know?

Do you remember what an adjective is? An adjective is a describing word. It describes the noun. What adjectives did you hear in the story?

What adjectives can you think of to describe the Gruffalo? For example the Gruffalo has purple prickles. He has orange eyes and a poisonous wart. Can you write eight different adjectives to describe parts of the Gruffalo and then complete the Gruffalo picture or draw your own in your home learning book.



Mental maths:

In school we follow white rose maths and there are videos each day that you will be able to access at home. 

Watch the video on the website and then complete the activities. Make sure you watch the correct video each day. Today you need to click on the count in 5s activity video. The questions and answers are saved at the bottom of this page. If you can't print out the sheet draw the things you need into your home learning book. 

If the activities are too difficult just do the questions that you can and I will provide an easier activity below.

Well Being Wednesday

Throughout the current pandemic, we have been reminded more than ever of the importance of mindfulness and wellbeing.

At Maybury Primary School, we are aware that the current need for schooling at home has potentially increased the amount of screen time your child is receiving. Add to that the strains, worries and concerns of changes in routines, missing friends and working differently, and sometimes it can all be too much.

With that in mind, we have created Wellbeing Wednesday, an afternoon given over to unplugged (non-screen) activities.

Tasks are being planned around art, craft, design, fitness and activities such as construction and nature.

If it suits your family’s routine, please swap afternoons. You could have Mindful Monday or Thoughtful Thursday - catchy name optional!

Should you have children in more than one year group, please select just one activity for you all to complete. We do not want this to be a stressful time!

This afternoon look around your house and garden. Look for different colours around you. Can you draw or take a photo of the things that you find.
