Christmas Holiday Key Skills

Hi All.

We hope you’ve had a great Christmas and are looking forward to a few more days off before we return to school in 2017.  Thank you so much for our lovely gifts and cards.

Just a quick reminder of the whole school Shakespeare project that we will be starting next week…

Whole school Shakespeare Key Skills

As you know we will be having a whole school theme based on William Shakespeare’s The Tempest beginning on January 5th.  In preparation for this we are asking that all children in the school take some time over the Christmas holiday to complete key skills titled;  ‘Who was William Shakespeare?’ You may want to find out where Shakespeare lived, information about some of his famous plays, learn a quote, investigate what life was like when he was alive etc. This is open and up to you and your child. How this is produced is also open. You could; make a poster, create a powerpoint, write a biography, retell a play, take photographs etc.  The home learning needs to be brought back to school on January 5th and it will be shared with your child’s class.

Your math’s tasks are all on mangahigh and mymaths if you are in Churchill; Mr Prosser set separate activities for you to complete if you work in the Learning Pit.

Email Mrs Greener or myself if you need help with any of the tasks.

See you next Thursday in Shakespearean costumes!  If you’re stuck for ideas, Shakespeare included many monsters and fairy like magical creatures in his plays so let your imagination go wild!
