Sugarloaf Class

Hi Sugarloaf, 

I am missing you all very much. I hope you have all had a wonderful half term break and stayed safe and healthy. I would love to hear about your week. 

I have been reading a lot still to keep myself occupied. I have also started to learn how to knit. It is very tricky and will definitely take me a lot of practicing to get the hang of it. Have you learned something new during this time away?

This home page will be updated with activities that can be done throughout the week such as times table focus and spellings. I will also be putting work up for each day on the tabs labelled Monday- Friday! I would love to see all of your amazing work, feel free to send me a picture or even type your work up! 

All work can be sent to:

Children Reading Clipart Stock Vectors, Images & Vector Art ...

Make sure you are continuing to read for at least 20 minutes everyday! I have been checking Epic! and lots of you are going above and beyond this. I'm so proud of you. If you still need a link to allow you to access Epic! at home please let me know. 

If any of you have read a book on Epic! that you really enjoyed, please send me a quick blurb or review and why you enjoyed it so I can share it with your classmates! 

This week's book feature is called: 


This book is a non-fiction text that is made up of different poems and text styles. It is an inspiring story and is a great break from reading traditional texts.

Extra Task: 

 Here is a great activity you can do with a sibling, parent or even on your own! 

These decorations recycle old tin cans! 



 Step 1: 

Start by painting the can in colours of your choice.

 Step 2: 

After the paint is dry, use glue to attach colourful ribbons to the bottom rim of the can. You also added a ribbon to the top of the can for hanging.

Add any extra decorations to the can that you may like (sparkles, stickers, words) 

Step 3: 

Hang your creation! 


I have also left the link for Dance Mat Typing below, incase you would still like to practice!
