Welcome to Summer Term 2

 

Hi Cedar Class, 

 

I hope you all have had a lovely half term break.  

 

For this half term, our topic is 'The Animal Kingdom'.  I have added lots of activities to purple mash, to share with you some of the learning we are doing on this topic.  Have a go and I look forward to seeing your efforts. 

 

Lexia, Big Maths, Purple mash and Literacy Planet  have lots of new exciting learning games for you to do.  If you need any of your logins, please email cedar@kafed.org.uk.  

 

Keep using BBC bitesize daily lessons.  Here are my three recommendations for this week:

Parental help and guidance needed for this one: 

Using any 'jam jars' you have at home and turning them in to music instruments: 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkgkwty 

 

Information and a quiz on the different animals in our world and how we can group them:
