Our Big Journey


This half term, our Summer Big Journey is- Splat!  Are you the next Banksy?


If school had been open, we had planned to create a Big KS1 Art Attack picture on our school playground as our 'Super Start'.  Instead, why not look at these amazing images from Yorkshire's own 'Banksy' Rachel List. Take some inspiration and chalk your own pictures at home.  Please send photos of your creations to your teachers- we would love to see your incredible artwork!





For our 'Fantastic Finish', we had planned to hold an Art Sale for parents and carers to attend.  During school closures, why not create some beautiful artwork or cards to sell to family and friends and donate the money raised to a local charity or the NHS?  We would love to hear from any of our amazing children who are fundraising!


We had lots of experiences planned including creating a sculpture using natural materials.  If you are lucky enough to be able to go for a family walk near woodland, why not collect lots of natural resources and create an image or a sculpture?  We would love to see photographs of your work!


We were also planning a visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.  Maybe you could take a virtual tour online to look at the different sculptures?  Or visit with your family when we are allowed to enjoy days out again?  Entry to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is free!  Take a picnic for a brilliant family day out!






In Literacy, we planned to become illustrators and study 'The Book with No Pictures' before creating beautiful plates to illustrate each page, using our imaginations and creativity.


Whilst school remains closed, please read a chapter book to your child, 10 minutes per day, and ask them questions about what you have read.  This will help to develop their listening and concentration skills.  In school, we tend to focus on authors such as Michael Morpurgo, Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl, David Walliams and Dick-King Smith.  



Please make sure children read to you every day as reading is vital to ensure that children make progress with their learning.  This will help to develop the children's decoding, fluency, stamina and comprehension skills.  


There is lots of evidence to show that children who read regularly at home improve their attainment in maths and writing too!




In maths, home learning will be focusing on developing number skills, particularly in addition, subtraction and multiplication.  Children will also be learning how to tell the time and the properties of 2D & 3D shapes.  We will work hard to develop our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills, in both practical and written contexts.  

Every week, we will set an investigation where children will have the chance to apply the skills that they have been practising! 





This half-term, we will be learning about plants and how plants grow.  We will then learn all about materials and their properties.  



Digital Art

The children will create pieces of digital art using a range of programs and websites.



Please continue to have at least one hour of physical exercise per day whilst school remains closed.
