IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT KAHOOT BEFORE THE ZOOM TOMORROW

PLEASE READ :)

 

Hello All,

 

I am really looking forward to our Kahoot fun quiz after the sunflower project share on zoom!

 

Tomorrow at 9.30 am (19th June), after the sunflower project share, I will be streaming a Kahoot made by myself and using the brilliant camouflage that you have sent in!   

 

It's really easy to use, there are just a couple of things you will need to do before the zoom meeting.

 

1. Have 2 devices one to see the Kahoot questions on zoom and the other to answer the Kahoot questions. I would used a laptop/computer for the zoom and a phone/tablet to answer the questions. 

 

2. Down load the Kahoot app and sign up. Tomorrow you will be give a pin number during the zoom meeting which you will need to type in when you open the app to join my quiz.

 

Don’t forget to make sure you have kahoot! on your device before .  You can download from here>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

So how are you all getting on with the start of the craft project? 

Have you been researching two animals? 

Are you starting to become more interested in one?

Well the next two weeks will see us delving into what the animals habitats are like?

I will send you an email of this as well just so you can the information for parents to see.

 

Still missing you all but excited about your projects!!

Home Habitat Box Project Task 2

New - 20/4/20

Theme this term is:

Paws, Claws and Whiskers

Hello All!

It has been lovely to hear from some of you via Purple Mash and through the school email, where you have sent in pictures of what you have been up to. 

 

Last week, I set work about mini beasts so you could get out into your garden and see what is around (by the way we love the work you have been doing it has been fab!).

 

This week, as we would be officially back at school, we are starting our new theme which is about big beasts: any animal that has paws, claws and whiskers!

I will be updating the HLP every two weeks there is a brand new PDF for our home learning. This is an introduction to our new themes with tasks for you to do.

 

There will also be an ongoing research and craft project for you to do. We want you bring it back to school to show and tell (when we are back). This will take a while because you will need to find out about animals with Paws, Claws and Whiskers cause not all animals have them. You will have to find out where the different animals live and whether they are hot or cold countries; what is their habitats are like and what the animals eat. Are they all carnivores? Are they herbivores? or they omnivore? - You will also need to find out what these word mean.

 

 Then once you know all of this information you can choose which animal you would like to choose and you will create a mini habitat for your animal in a box and bring it into school. More details are on the Home Habitat Box Project PDF below.
