We're all going on a Summer Holiday Adventure.
Well guys this is our very last week of lockdown learning Blog!
I'm sad in a way as I've really enjoyed thinking of lots of exciting things for you to do but really I can't wait to get beck into the classrooms and see you all again in September.
For our last Amazing adventure, this week we are going on a Holiday Adventure.
Holidays can take you anywhere and I bet lots of you are looking forward to going somewhere nice on holiday soon.
Here is a story about a little boy who goes to the Seaside for his adventure.
Now that you've listened to the story. Here are few activities you might like to try today.
1. Just like Arthur, Could you make a guide to a rock pool?
Pause the video at the rock pool and draw pictures of everything you can see. Can you write the names of these things too? If you're not sure you could ask your grown up or look at Arthur's guide at the end of the story.
2. You could make your very own rock pool
3. Edith told Arthur lots of lovely things that would be at the seaside.
Write some sentences to tell someone else what they might see, hear, feel, play, taste.
Try to make your sentences super by using some fantastic adjectives.
Use this as a sentence starter and think of your own ideas or go back to the story.
At the seaside you ...
Here are a couple of examples,
At the seaside you will hear noisy seagulls squawking.
At the seaside you can taste delicious ice-cream.
4. Write a postcard home to a friend to tell them about all the amazing things you have seen and done at the seaside.
Here is a link to a postcard template you could print off and use. If you don't have a printer though don't worry you can just use a piece of paper and pretend.

There are so many different places we could go on holiday. Where would you like to go?
Can you find your holiday destination on a map?
Follow this link to Google Earth and watch your computer fly you to wherever you want to go.
How will you get there?
There are many different ways to travel to different places.
Have a go at making one of these modes of transport.
You might be able to think of other transport that could take you to your holiday. These are just a few ideas.
Wednesday 15th July
Sometimes we go on holiday to different countries where they speak a different language.
Do you know another language?
Lets have a go at learning another language today.
Here are a couple of websites where you will be able to hear, copy and practise speaking in a language you might not already know.
Thursday 16th July
Lets get ready for the Holiday's!!!!
Today we will be thinking about all the different things we might need to take on our holiday.
Here is a link to an activity where you can print off a suitcase and some holiday items. Cut out the items and decide which items you will need to take on your holiday.
If you don't have a printer you could simply draw a suitcase and the objects you want to take.
Why not find yourself a real suitcase or bag and gather the things you will need from around your home.
1. Can you count how many items you have packed in your suitcase?
2. What is the largest item in your suitcase and which is the smallest?
3. Which is the heaviest item and which is the lightest?
Finally here is a link to a holiday themed dice game that you can print and play.
Friday 16th July
We made it!!!!
What a strange year it's been, but you've done it and this is the last day of lockdown learning.
Please enjoy these Holiday themed yummies and fun activities
Beach cupcake recipe:
6 oz self raising flour
6 oz butter or margarine
6 oz caster sugar
few drops vanilla essence
dash of milk
Simply mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, using a mixer. Done! Spoon the mixture into cupcake cases, filling each one 2/3rds full, then bake in a muffin tin for 25 minutes at 180 degrees C (that’s about 350 F.)
To make the topping, first we mixed half a cup of icing sugar with a few drops of warm water and stirred until we made the correct consistency for runny icing (frosting.) I find this is different every time I make it, so experiment! Generally you don’t need a lot of water at all. We added a few drops of blue colouring to make it look like the ocean, then spread it over each cake, once they were cooled.
The girl loved the next step the best! I gave them each 5 or 6 digestive biscuits (Graham crackers are a smilier US equivalent) and they bashed them up using the pestle and mortar, until they resembled breadcrumbs. This made our edible sand topping. They sprinkled this all over the icing, covering it up. (That was around 10 biscuits total.)
To finish them off they stuck a beach umbrella cocktail stick into the top of each one! Voila!
Some more holiday treats you may enjoy!
And don't forget those yummy favourites.
Grab yourself an Ice-cream and some Fish and Chips.
Have a fantastic summer guys.
See you in September!!!!
