Hi Class Monet!


We have missed seeing you all and teaching you this week.  We hope you have all been staying safe and that you have been showing your parents and other adults how brilliant your work can be.  :)  


Below you will find all the home learning activities and some resources to help you.  On some days, there are different activities.  If you are needing to download those activities from this page, please check with me which group you are in - groups differ depending on activity.


If you need any help with your work or have any questions, your adults can email us on our class email (which is at the top of this page).  You can also email us yourselves, letting us know what you have been up to - we would love to hear from you!  Please make sure you ask your adult's permission before emailing and they will be able to help you if you're not sure how to use an email - you will be experts in no time!  :)


The tadpoles have been settling well into their new home and I have been learning lots about tadpoles and frogs to make sure they get the best care.  I will be posting regular photos and videos onto our class page so you can watch them as they grow.  If anyone has any ideas for a name for this part of the website, email me to let me know.  So far the best name I have come up with is 'Tadpole Watch' - I'm sure some of you can come up with a much better name!


Finally, we would love to see photos of your work or any other fun activities you have been doing.  Let us know if we can share them on the class webpage so that all your friends can see what you've been up to.


We hope to see you soon.  Take care and make sure you are helping your adults with jobs at home - you are all superstars!  :)


Miss Welsford, Mrs Griffin and Mrs Longley

Picture Collage Information


My sister is a nurse on the children's ward at our local hospital.  They have been asking children and schools to create colourful pictures to brighten up the ward and make the staff and children there smile during this time.  If you would like to help me with this, create a colourful piece of artwork using pencils or paints, maybe sticking on different materials, or even design it on the computer, the choice is up to you.  When you have finished, take a picture of your artwork and send it to our class email.  I will then make a class collage out of all the artwork to email to the children's ward so they can print it off to use.  Please do not include your name or photo as I will be writing that it is from Crockenhill and we don't want children to be identified.  Thanks.


Please ignore the address on the picture; email your pictures, do not post them.

Welcome to Class Monet's home page!


Our topic during the Spring term is Woodland Wildlife.  We will be learning about the lifecycles of different animals and looking at different habitats and why habitats are suitable for the wildlife that lives there.  We will also be looking at the wildlife around school and making a welcoming environment to encourage insects  to make their homes here.


This term we are also learning how to use maps and atlases in our Geography work.  We will be looking at Brazil and comparing what it is like there compared to here in the UK.


In English, we will be reading the books 'The Hodgeheg', 'Zeraffa Giraffa' and 'Claude in the City'.


We have started learning new skills in P.E. and have been having fun doing Gymnastics, Infant Agility and Dance.


We are still really enjoying using MyMaths and RMEasimaths in class and at home to help us with our Maths, and have just started using Times Tables Rockstars to help us learn our times tables.

Monet is really looking forward to staying with some of you this year. He can't wait to see who he gets to go home with next! Don't forget to fill in Monet's diary and bring it back in on Wednesday so it can be shared with the class.
