Hi Beech Class!

I hope you are all well and have had a lovely Christmas. Every day, we release learning for you to complete at home. This week, there will be different video tutorials for you to watch with different activities for you to complete. We are planning to hold a Zoom meeting at some point this week, we will be in touch via Parent App with more details, when they are available.


Here is today’s home learning:

Can you watch this video:


Can you think of questions you would like to ask about the object?

Questions start with a question word …

and finish with a question mark ?

You can write them down or verbally discuss them with an adult.

When you are writing your question use this sound mat to help you find the sounds you need…



Adults, please don’t tell your child how to spell every word – let them sound it out themselves. It really helps their learning process.

1- 2 questions is a good starting place but you can do more if you like.


Alternative English

Here are some other ideas for English if this is more appropriate for your child:




This week we are looking at time.

Or you can have a go at our daily challenges.

Today’s challenge is all about igloos. Watch this video to learn more:


Can you design and make an igloo out of materials you have at home?

It could be lego or card or paper or anything else you have that you think would be appropriate.

Think about what you need to do to make it look like an igloo.

Use this video to help you:


Please send any work you would like me to see to h.quinn@ellel-st-johns.lancs.sch.uk. I would love to hear from you and see how you’re getting on.
