For the next two weeks, the whole school is working on the topic of 'Chinese New Year'.
To try and support the very difficult process of home schooling whilst probably balancing children of different ages and/or working, we have planned the topic activities for the next two weeks as follows:
You will find a grid filled with 'Pick & Mix' activities. As you will see on the grid, these activities are linked to different areas from the wider curriculum, such as art or computing.
These activities are planned so that to some extent, they can be completed by children in any year group. You will find that this new grid has the addition of a column of activities especially for children in Reception. Children of all ages could enjoy these activities, but they are planned to be perfect for Reception children.
This means that if you have more than one child at Torrisholme, when their timetables refer to choosing activities from the pick & mix grid, they could could complete the same activity. This could be done individually or by working together. Hopefully the advantage for parents would be that you would only have to explain/resource/supervise one activity.
Once you have looked through the activities on the grid, you will find a list of numbered documents on this page which correspond to the activities numbered on the grid.
Many of the activities do need some resources from home in order to complete them, so we would advise that you look through the grid before starting next week's learning and plan which ones would be suitable for your family.
There is no pressure from school to complete these activities. Please fit in whatever fits your family and circumstances.
