Good afternoon children! 

I hope that you and your families are all doing well. 

 

This week we've been doing a lot of reading at home as it's so important to try and do a little each day. Here's Evie reading a story to her baby sister Isla. 

 

 

Do you have a favourite story? What is the story's setting and who are the main characters? Email me at i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk to let me know. 

 

We enjoyed another visit to a local farm this morning. As we had a lot of rain last night there were a lot of puddles. Some of the ducks decided to make the largest puddle their new home! 

 

 

Please do get in touch to let me know how you are and what you have been getting up to. It would be wonderful to hear from you. Have a lovely week!

 

Lots of love

Hello Everyone!

 

I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. It's certainly been a week of sunshine and showers hasn't it! Evie loves being outside so we try to go outdoors as much as we can whatever the weather as you can see in the photos below. 

 

 

 

A little farm around the corner from where we live had a birds of prey exhibition today so Evie and I decided to go along whilst Isla stayed at home with her daddy to have her morning nap. We got to hold this beautiful barn owl called Luna which was exciting! She was very gentle and her feathers were so soft. 

 

 

Please email photos of your learning and anything else you have been up to to i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk. It is always wonderful to hear from you.

 

Lots of love

Hello children!

 

I hope that you are all happy and well and have been having lots of fun despite the terrible weather!

 

Evie was very excited when she received a special parcel in the post this week. Inside was a letter and a teddy bear from her new teachers whose class she will be in when she starts school in September.

 

 

Evie then went outside and drew these lovely chalk pictures to show her new teachers.

 

 

 

 

 

Today we did some rainy day baking and made these chocolate fairy cakes. 

 

 

Here's the recipe if you would like to have a go at making them at home.

 

Ingredients

 

For the Cupcakes

 

  • 4 tbsp Water (Boiling)
  • 40g Cocoa Powder
  • 3 Free Range Large Egg
  • 175g Unsalted Butter (Softened)
  • 165g Golden Caster Sugar 
  • 115g Self-Raising White Flour

  • 1 tsp Baking Powder

For the Buttercream

  • 60g Unsalted Butter (Softened)
  • 30g Cocoa Powder
  • 3 tbsp Milk (Whole)
  • 250g Icing Sugar 
  • A Handful of decorations

 

Method

 

  1. Line a muffin tin with paper cases. Sift the cocoa powder into a bowl, pour in the boiling water and mix into a thick paste. Add the remaining cake ingredients and mix with an electric hand whisk (or beat with a wooden spoon).

  2. Divide the mixture equally between the 12 paper cases. Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C (400°F, Gas mark 6) for about 12-15 minutes until well risen and springy to the touch. Cool in the cases on a wire rack.

  3. To make the chocolate icing melt the butter and pour it into a bowl. Sift in the cocoa powder and stir in the icing sugar a little at a time. Spread over the cupcakes, sprinkle with chocolate decorations and leave to set.

 

I would love to see what you have been up to this week. Please email me at i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk. I will post next week's home learning challenges tomorrow for you to have a go at. 

 

Take care and stay safe.

 

Lots of love

Hello everyone,

 

What beautiful weather we are having today! I do hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine. 

 

Evie's favourite activity this week has been visiting some woodlands we haven't been to before. We really enjoyed the walk and it was great to be out and about in the fresh air. There were lots of beautiful views to look at. 

 

 

 

We also saw these fantastic wood carvings. I wonder if you recognise the well known book character in the first and second photos?

 

 

 

 

I hope that you are all doing well. It would be wonderful to hear from you. Please get in touch at i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk.

Hello children,

How are you all getting on? I hope that you have had a lovely week with your families.

The weather hasn’t been as good this week but we’ve been getting out as much as we can. We’ve really enjoyed seeing lots of different animals on our walks, there were quite a few that Evie hadn’t seen before so she was very excited!

 

These alpacas were very inquisitive!

 

 

It was wonderful to see some baby lambs up close.

 

 

A hen and her chicks

 

 

Two geese and their goslings. These were Evie’s favourite!

 

 

I hope that you are all doing well. If you would like to share your learning or anything else you have been up to please email me at i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk. This week’s learning challenges are now up for you to have a go at. Have fun!

 

Lots of love

Good Morning Class 5,

 

I hope that you have been enjoying the beautiful sunshine and all had a lovely half term. 

 

Some of you were getting ready to come back to school this week but as you will know things have now changed and we are having to carry on doing our learning at home for a little longer. Although I know it might feel a bit disappointing that we won't be together at school, we have our special Class 5 page to keep in touch and I have been so proud of the super learning you have been doing at home with your families. If you would like to share any learning with your friends on our page please email me at i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk. 

 

I have put some new home learning challenges up for you to have a go at this week and it would be great to see some photos of your learning when you have finished. 

 

Take care and stay safe. Please email me if there's anything you need.

 

Lots of love

Hello everyone!

I hope that you have had a wonderful time celebrating Eid, I was thinking of you all.

 

Yesterday, I went on a walk to the canal near my house with my little girls and Evie noticed some beautiful flowers that were painted on the side of one of the barges. 

 

When we got home we watched a video of a lady doing some barge art and Evie decided to make some beautiful artwork of her own. 

 

 

We still love to visit the ducklings at the canal almost everyday and as you can see they are almost as big as their mummy now! 

 

 

I've had some lovely emails this week and it always makes me so happy to hear from you. Don't forget to keep checking our 'what Class 5 have been up to' page to see what your friends have been doing.

 

I hope that you all have a wonderful half term this week!

 

Take care and stay safe.

 

Lots of love

Good morning children,

Thank you so much to everyone who has emailed me this week. It has been wonderful to hear how you are and to see what you have been doing. Please take a look at our ‘What Class 5 have been up to’ page to see lots of super learning that has been happening over the past couple of weeks.

This week Evie and I have been learning about rainforests. We read a non-fiction book together and recorded all of the facts that we found out about rainforests.

 

 

 

After that we made a rainforest in a jar. Evie collected all of the materials she needed from around the garden and arranged them in a jar to make her rainforest. She chose soil to make a soft rainforest floor for the minibeasts to live in and lots of greenery to make tall trees where rainforest monkeys, birds and frogs live. 

 

 

 

 

 

If you have an empty plastic container maybe you could have a go at designing and making your own habitat. Maybe a bug hotel for your favourite minibeasts, a nest for a bird or even a dinosaur swamp. The possibilities are endless!

 

There are some new challenges to have a go at this week. Please email me your learning and anything else that you would like to share to i.davies@whitefield.lancs.sch.uk. I would love to see what you have been up to and hear about you and your family’s plans for celebrating Eid.

 

Take care and stay safe. 

 

Lots of love,

 

Mrs Williams.

Hello!

 

How is everyone? I hope that you're all keeping well during Ramadan, I'm always thinking of you. 

 

Evie is still really interested in animals. We've been learning all about the life cycle of a frog and yesterday Evie wanted to make a pond for a frog, froglet, tadpole and frogspawn to live in.

 

 

She thought very carefully about what the creatures would need. First she decided to put cold water in to keep the frogs cool, some leaves for the tadpoles to eat and a safe place for the mummy frog to lay her frogspawn. 

 

Hajra's mummy has emailed me some photos of some super learning that Hajra has been doing at home. I've put the photos on our 'what Class 5 have been up to' page for you to have a look at. If you would like to share some photos of your learning with your friends on our page ask a grown up to email them to i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk. 

 

I hope that you're all doing ok children and look forward to when we can see each other again. 

 

Stay safe and take care.

 

Lots of love,

Hello again!

 

How are you all? I hope you've had a lovely week at home with your families. 

 

Yesterday, Evie decided to make some magic potions. We collected some petals and flowers off the pavement on our walk to put in the potion and added food colouring to change the colour of the water. 

 

 

When I asked Evie what her magic potion was for she told me that it could change leaves into magic jewels! If you could make a magic potion, what would yours do? 

 

We are going out everyday for our walk as it's so important to get some exercise out in the fresh air. We visit the little ducklings at the canal near our house and it's lovely to watch them grow. 

 

 

I've put some learning activities for you to have a go at with your families at home this week. Don't forget to email your learning and your news to i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk. 

 

Take care and stay safe.

 

Lots of love

Good morning children!

 

I hope that you and your families are all doing well. Have you been enjoying the sunshine? We have to make the most of it as I believe that it's soon meant to rain! 

 

Baby Isla is almost 9 months old and she's crawling around everywhere. We have to always keep an eye on her to make sure that she doesn't get up to any mischief! Her Grandma and Grandad sent her a lovely book in the post and as you can see she loves looking at herself in the mirror! 

 

Evie really enjoys playing schools at the moment. This September she will be starting school herself. I can't believe how quickly the time has gone! 

 

Don't forget to email me at i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk to let me know what you have been up to. It would be lovely to have some pictures of your super learning on our special class page!

 

Lots of love

Hello Class 5!

 

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend. We have had such wonderful, sunny weather that Evie and I have been spending a lot of time outside!

 

Today we went on a walk to the canal close to our house. When we got there we saw some ducklings and Evie was very excited! 

 

 

 

Has anyone seen any baby birds at the canal near our school? 

 

Don't forget to email any learning to

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Hello Class 5,

I hope that you are all doing well. We’ve had a busy day today and Evie has had a lot of fun making these lovely animal magnets for our fridge!

A few days ago Evie made a beautiful rainbow picture to post to her auntie and uncle. Can you think of something special that you could make or do to make someone in your family smile?

 

 

If you would like to share anything on our class page, please email i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk.

 

Take care and stay safe.

 

Lots of love,

Hello again!

Today Evie and I made some chocolate crispy cakes. We had so much fun and they’ve nearly all gone already!

 

 

Have you been helping your grown ups with any cooking or baking at home? Why not send a photo to i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk? It would be great to see what you’ve been up to!

Take care,

Lots of love

Hello everyone!

I hope that you have been enjoying the sunshine! Today Evie and I went on a minibeast hunt around our local area. We found a spider, three snails, lots of woodlice and a wriggly worm!

         

Next time you are outside perhaps you could have a look for some minibeasts. Don’t forget to take some photographs and send them to i.davies@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk and I’ll share them here for us all to look at.

After we went on our minibeast hunt, Evie decided to make a minibeast home using an old ice cream tub and some natural materials that we found outside. Maybe you could try making one too?

 

 

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Lots of love,

Mrs Williams xxx

                                

Here are some more ideas for activities to try at home

 

English - writing

Create a story jar or story bag, find a jar or bag and collect items to go in it that relates to a favourite story.  If you can’t find an item, you could draw a picture or write a clue to include. Make a book retelling your favourite story that can be shared with your class.

 

 

English - reading

Traditional Tales

 

What is your favourite traditional tale/fairy-tale? Who are the characters in your favourite traditional tale? Where is the story set? What is the problem in the story? How is the problem resolved?

 

Draw a picture of your favourite part in the story.

 

Shape, Space and Measure

Mathematics: Measuring height and length

 

1. Discuss the meaning of length and height with an adult.

 

2. Can you measure how long your room is using your feet? Measure how long your table is using your hand. What else can you find to measure? Can you record what you have found out?

 

Science

Materials

 

Find different objects around the house and write down what material or materials it is made out of. Make sure you find at least one example of each material – wood, plastic, glass, metal and rock.

 

For example: The door is made out of wood.

 

Geography

 

Draw and label your daily route from home to school. Like shown on the picture below. 

 

Use positional language to describe the route. Words like left turn, right turn, forwards, etc.

 

 

Number

The animals stack 10 eggs onto two shelves. How many different ways can they do this?

 

E.g. 4 on the top shelf, 6 on the bottom shelf.

 

 

Art

What would you find at the top of the beanstalk? Draw or paint a picture showing what you might find. Continue the sentence; I would find.......
