The Lyppard Grange Primary School Empowering children to be secure, engaged and equipped for life.

Considering our school for your child to start in September 2021? Unfortunately, we are unable to offer parent tours; please view this video for a flavour of our school.

Week Thirteen

Reading

Children who are returning to school will be reading all of their books in school with a Teacher or Teaching Assistant as we cannot send materials home.  There will be no book bags or reading journals.

 

For those children who are not returning to school we will allocate 2 books on Bug club on Fridays for the following week.

Remember all the books previously allocated will still be available for the children to re-read and please continue to use any other books you have at home.  Children will also enjoy finding words in books you read to them as well as the environment.

Continue to use the bumblebee tricky word mat for children to recognise and read on sight and begin spelling accurately too.

Oxford Reading tree have also released their scheme for you to use at home for free. This is in the national book band colours. You will need to create an account.

Day 1

Ahoy there shipmates!

All good pirates love treasure!

This week we would like you to make a treasure chest.

Junk modelling containers like an empty egg box or an empty vegetable box is ideal.  

Here are some examples to inspire you.

If you would like a little more help here are some swashbuckling

instructions to help you.   

Once you have painted and decorated the outside of the treasure chest you can start adding the shiny coins and jewels to the inside.  Perhaps you have some fancy dress jewellery you could use or ask a grown up if you could cut some coins out of foil.

Don’t forget to ask your grown up to take a photograph of your treasure chest and send it to us.

Please also choose a phonics game from Education City or Espresso to play today.

Day 2

 

Ahoy there Shipmates!

For today’s activity, you are going to need 20 pirate coins with numbers 1 – 20 on. You can print off and use the coins we have provided or you can make the coins at home with some foil or with paper.

 

When you have got your 20 coins and they all numbered, put them into the treasure chest you made yesterday. Give your treasure chest a shake so the coins are all jumbled up and then take 5 coins out. Read the numbers on the coins carefully and then see if you can put them in order from smallest number to biggest number. When you have done it, put the coins back into the chest and give it another shake. Then you can play all over again!

Day 3

Ahoy there shipmates!

 

We bet your treasure chests look amazing!

 

Once pirates have found their treasure they like to hide it so baddie pirates don’t steal it.

Just in case the pirates forget where they have hidden the treasure, they make a map so they can always find it again.

Take your treasure chest and decide where you would like to hide it.  It could be in your home or if it is a dry, sunny day, in your garden.

Once you have hidden it, make a map so you don’t forget where it is.  A good map will have a compass on it so show where North is.  Do you remember where we make a circle on the playground before we go to Forest School?  In the middle of that circle is a compass.  A good map will also show you where to start.  Don’t forget, all good pirates draw a large ‘X’ to mark the spot as to where the treasure is hidden.

Perhaps you could give your map to someone in your home and see if they can follow your map and find the treasure!

Good luck shipmates and don’t forget to send us your photographs of your treasure maps.
