Lockdown Book Week

Dear Children,

Our Book Week takes place during the week beginning Monday 1st March. This year things are different, but we can still have some fun and enjoy books.

 

We would like you to create something from an item at home. It must relate to a fiction book or a non-fiction book.

 Let’s think:

  • a wooden spoon or sock could become a puppet
  • an illustration from a story could be painted on a pebble
  • a hosepipe could be dressed as a snake (book character)
  • a shoebox has many possibilities

 

BE INVENTIVE What other items might you find at home? Be sure to ask permission before you launch into this activity.

 

We would be delighted if you could send a photograph of your creation. Please write the name of the book and author on a piece of paper; prop it up next to your artwork before you take the photograph.

 

Send the photograph to learningathome.034@educ.somerset.gov.uk   I will put the photos on the school website for all to enjoy.

 

Happy Reading

- make a 3D wasp

- ask a parent if you can bake some bread

Friday's Story time with Mrs Payne

We hope you have enjoyed listening to the stories. One more story. One more clue.

Have you got a baby or a toddler in your family?

This book might appeal to you. Click here to listen to the story.

 

Writing

  • Create a storyboard for another story where a toddler won't do something they should (e.g. wash their hands, go to bed).  How might the toddler behave when asked to do this thing?  What might they do that is naughty? What might get the toddler to do the thing that they have been asked to do?
  • Write an alphabet of food and drink.

(For example,  

A is for apple, smooth, red and sweet  

B is for broccoli, tree-like, green and crunchy.)

 

You don't have to do the whole alphabet.  You could write an acrostic where the first letters of each line spell something connected with food.  e.g.

H is for...

U is for...

N

G

R

Y

There is a list of foods below.  You can probably think of others.

Either
