I hope you are all safe, well and helping out at home!
Thank you so much for sending in all your lovely work last week - it was amazing to see how well you all did!
I have planned some more fun activities this week and I hope you enjoy doing them as much as I did planning them.
Please don't forget to send anything you have completed at home in, we would love to see how you are getting on.
This week, I thought i'd embrace the wet weather and jump in loads of puddles on my daily walk - it was great fun! I decided it would be fun to count how many jumps I could do in 1 minute. My total amount of jumps was 32. Can you beat my score?
Dont forget to send in your videos!

Hi Crickets, your English task this week relates to your last topic – The Great Fire of London. I know you all really enjoyed this topic and have become experts! Your task is to listen and read the poem ‘the Great Fire of London’ written by Paul Perro. Once you have listened, can you perform it? Don’t forget to add actions!
Here are the first two stanza of the poem:
The year was 1666,
Late one September night,
The baker’s shop in Pudding Lane
Glowed with an orange light.
The baker's oven was on fire
The flames began to spread.
Thomas the baker was upstairs
He was asleep in bed.
With an adult think about the following questions:
LOOK: Where was Thomas when the fire started?
CLUE: Why did he wake up?
THINK: How would you have reacted if you were Thomas?
We would love to see how you have got on, don’t forget to send us a video of your performance:
Challenge: If you can send in a video of yourself performing it with actions, I will do the same!
In Crickets, Mrs Shaw has told me how amazing you are with your number bonds. I'd like to challenge you, can you make your number bonds up to 100?
Remember a number can be thought of as a whole made up of different pairs, or parts, added together. Those pairs are called number bonds. Number bonds are different pairs of numbers that add up to the same number.

My best score was 28/33
Can you beat me?
Challenge your adults at home to see if they can beat you!
A bird beak is also called a bill
Last week, crickets made some amazing bird feeders – I was extremely impressed!
When watching the birds eating the food in the bird feeders did you ever wonder, how a bird is able to use their bill (beak) to pick up food? And what it is like to have a bill?
Well this week in Science, you are going try and see what it is like! Your Science task is to design and make a beak to up your favourite food!
Remember to be safe and make sure you are supervised by an adult. Some of the cutting out might be quite tricky!
Here are some examples of beaks you can make:

In this week’s outdoor learning challenge, I would like you to do some problem solving and create your own maze using items found in nature - this activity can be done in inside or outside. If you are going to create the maze inside, you could use straws or lollipop sticks to make the walls.
You could collect some sticks on your daily walk or use sticks from your garden. I would like you to be adventurous and collect as many sticks as you can – all shapes and sizes. Once you have made your maze, can you challenge someone in your house to see if they can get through your maze?
Have fun and be creative!
We would love to see how you have got on, don’t forget to send us a video or picture of your maze:
Something I know that all Crickets enjoy is making and eating food!
If like me and you are a real 'foodie', you could use this time at home to bake some goods or help out with making lunch. In class across the year I know you have looked at how to safely prepare and handle food so you can show off these skills at home. Just make sure you have an adult close to help you when using any sharp equipment.
Another of my favourite things to do when I am at home is to serve my food in fun ways. For instance, yesterday I created a turtle volcano (mash potato, beans and sausages laid out in the shape of a turtle erupting beans from its back). What funky things can you create?
We would love to see how you have got on, don’t forget to send us a picture of your funky food creation:
Each day, I am going to upload my own food creation, let's see if you can be more creative than me!
Day 1 - The Disco Dancing Flower Men
What song do you think they could be dancing to?
Day 2 - Meals on wheels
Day 3 - 'The Cricket[z]'
