Dear Year 3,
Our theme is exploring emotions. Today we are going to focus on the emotion of happiness!
Please draw a picture of what happiness means to you and write down what it looks, feels and sounds like.
In addition to this please write down four separate sentences about the things that make you feel happy in school, at home, with your friends and family.
Have fun.
Warm Regards
Mrs Brocker



Dear Year 4,
Please look at the list I have attached and have a conversation with your family to discuss what types of behaviours help to form, maintain and sustain good friendships.
Have fun!
Thank you
Mrs Brocker

Art Project

LO: to apply my knowledge about geometric shapes in art

SC1: I can continue and finish my final project

SC2: I can add any finishing touches to my project

SC3: I can take photos/ present my learning for evidence of my final outcome

Watch my video to know what you need to do today.



ACTIVITY: Today is your last full day to completely finish your project. Make sure you continue to follow your plan and add any last minute touches that will ensure your project is the best it can be!

When you are completely happy that you are finished, you need to think about how you need to present it as evidence that it is complete – will you take photos or make a video? Do you want to add anything next to your outcome or explain verbally what it is/ who it is by/ details about how it was made? Think carefully about this and send them to us – we cannot wait to see!
