Hello Kandinsky,

 

Welcome to the second half of the summer term - I hope that you all enjoyed the sunshine over half term.

 

This week all of your activities are based upon the book ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ by Beatrix Potter which was first published in 1902. I absolutely loved the Beatrix Potter stories when I was your age and this was one of my favourites.

 

Mrs. Allen

There is a whole website all about Peter Rabbit, you can find it here:

Ask your child to read the extract of text and answer the questions on their own. Then ask them to read the text out loud and discuss the answers that they have given. Encourage them to go back to the text to find and copy the answers where possible rather than guessing or using memory. 

 

Here are two for you to try:

Science:

 

Did you know that a rabbit's front teeth never stop growing? They need to have lots of things to nibble on to keep their front teeth the right size!

 

This week for Sciecne I thought that you could learn about keeping your teeth clean and your mouth healthy. There are lots of resources on the following website:
