Home learning: Thursday 2nd April 2020 The English and Maths tasks from Monday will remain on the site for those who would still like to access the ideas. See below.
A quick note to our parents - All activities and tasks are suggestions and are to be used in any way that suit you and your children. You may complete all the tasks or you may choose just one or two plus you will have many ideas of your own, as will the children. The best learning arises from the childrens interests, so let them take the lead. We welcome all learning from our children and encourage you all to make this time at home individual to your family. Simply spending time together doing nothing other than enjoying each others company feels particularly important right now. Any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us on kestrel.sch202@educ.somerset.gov.uk. A huge and heartfelt thank you to you all for your ongoing support! Mrs Bird & Mrs Sugg.
 In English you may like to continue with our poetry week. The children have completed several acrostic poems in school over the last term. Have a go at writing an Easter themed acrostic poem that can be shared with the class. Mrs Sugg has also created a Spring Poem sheet that you might like to use. Click on the link below to have a look and download./docs/Spring_ideas.docx
Monday's Poetry work: Pick a poem to learn and recite. You might like to read it to a friend over the phone or via a video. The children know 'The Owl and the Pussycat' well but a new one would be great. Some good ones are Edward Lear's nonsence poems. You may then like to choose from the following ideas 1) Copy out your poem and add illustrations. 2) Write your own poem in the style of... 3) Begin to make a collection of your favourite poems. 4) Find out the meaning of new words.                                                       
 Year 1 Maths: If you have worked on the previous task, have a go at finding a half and a quarter of different amounts. For example, take 6 counters/objects. Can you share into two groups and find out how many are in each group/one half? Can you share into 4 groups to find one quarter of an amount? Repeat for several different amounts. These activities might be helpful. Click on the link... /docs/year_1_fractions_of_an_amount.docx
From Monday 30th March: Fractions (please work practically on this one to begin). You may like to begin to find halves and quarters of simple shapes/objects. Start with drawing a square (equal sides!), cutting it out and folding your shape equally in half. Can you now fold your square again to make quarters? Can you label each part of your shape in words (whole, half, quarter)? Repeat several times using other simple shape, discussing the fractions that you are making. Remember: All parts must be equal size! If you would like some activity sheets to support this learning, please email the class email.
Year 2 Maths: If you have worked on the previous task, have a go at finding a half and a quarter of different amounts. For example, take 6 counters/objects. Can you share into two groups and find out how many are in each group/a half? Can you share into 4 groups to find one quarter of an amount? Repeat for several different amount. These activities might be helpful. Click on the links below... /docs/Y2-Spring-Block-4-WO5-Find-a-quarter-2019.pdf/docs/Y2-Spring-Block-4-WO4-Recognise-a-quarter-2019.pdf
From Monday 30th March - Fractions (please work practically on this one to begin). You may like to begin to find halves and quarters of simple shapes/objects. Start with drawing a square (equal sides!), cutting it out and folding your shape equally in half. Can you now fold your square again to make quarters? Can you label each part of your shape in words (whole, half, quarter) and as the symbols (1/2, 1/4)? Repeat several times using other simple shape, discussing the fractions that you are making. Remember: All parts must be equal size! If you would like some activity sheets to support this learning, please email the class email.
Year 1 Spelling list: The vowel digraph 'er'. In these words the sound is stressed - herb, her, person, stern, verse, verb, term, germ, perch, yesterday.
Year 2 Spelling list: The /ee/ sound spelled 'ey' - key, donkey, monkey, chimney, valley, trolley, journey, turkey, jockey, kidney. 
An extra idea... Nature watch: How many different things can you spot in your garden or on a walk? Make a list with some pictures. Ask a member of your family to see if they can then find everything on your list.
