Rabbits – Home Learning Friday 10th July

Good Morning Rabbits

I’m in a silly sort of mood today – the last Friday that we will have of this school year!

To wake you all up – here is a VERY SILLY clapping and actions activity – I am picturing you all doing this at home – and looking quite daft!

Well – Did you manage to do it?  Did you look really silly?  I hope you are laughing now.

Spellings:  For your spelling words today – can you please have a go at writing them out in their pairs?  Kneel and Knelt, Feel and Felt etc.  See if you can remember the pair word when you have written the first one.  Calf and ……  Half and …….

Maths:  I am aware of how much ‘screen time’ you are going to have so please do just a few minutes of the maths games before taking a break to do something else – then return to the maths later.


PSHE:  to give you a break from ‘screening’ I have a colouring activity for you.  This is part of our PSHE on keeping you feeling well, relaxed and positive.  You can use any colours – pencils, paint, pen and it is for you to spend as long as you wish colouring the mandala.

Music:  here is the music link for your lesson today from Mrs Hindson.

I hope you all have a lovely Friday and a wonderful weekend.

Rabbits Home Learning for Wednesday 8th July

Good Morning Rabbits

We will carry on with our Pollution Project today.  I also have some maths tasks and games for you to work on.

To begin:  Spellings:  you had some spelling words this week that are either plural (more than one of the thing) or past tense (doing something in the past) .  Please write out a sentence for each of the words and make sure you are using the correct tense.

Maths:  you have been looking at using your maths brains to solve problems.  Today, I would like you to access Oxford Owl  and do some maths on line – please check in with your year group.  There are on line games relating to adding, shape and missing numbers.  Pick two games that look interesting.


English:  I have a few grammar exercises for you to do first.  You need to click the link and complete the sheets.


Today, I am going to re-visit the Literacy Shed for another lovely little film that you will uses as writing inspiration.  The film deals with our topic this week.


This lovely little film relates to our attitudes about pollution.

Task 1:  Write down a bullet point list of the things that the girl finds in the film.

Task 2:  Write down a bullet point list of the things that she gets out of her bag.

Task 3: Draw a picture of one of the scenes that you particularly liked.  This might show something that the girl did, or something magical that her bag was able to do.

Topic:  Making a swap for the amount of plastic you use is a bit of a challenge.  Can you have a think about what you use – and you cannot live without – but that comes in plastic wrappers, containers or protection.  Here are some things

Milk, juice, water, eggs, fruit,

lego, toys, dolls, x box

What else can you think of?   My children would not be happy if I said they cannot have an X Box game (that comes in a plastic case) or lego (which is entirely plastic).  We can’t do without it – but what can we do to avoid pollution?

Make a list of the things that you CAN replace and those that you can’t.

I now buy my eggs with paper based cases not plastic – what other changes can you make?

Now for your challenge:  You are going to invent a way to wrap and present your favourite toy or game and NOT USE PLASTIC.

You can use – Glass, Rubber, Paper, Card, Cloth, Cotton or any other material that is natural (such as leaves or bark).

Draw your designs or describe them and how you would package the toy using no plastic at all.


I hope you have a fun thinking about this!

Rabbits Home Learning for Wednesday 1st July

Good Morning Rabbits – Happy Middle of the Week Day!

Today we will continue the writing task based on the short film – Little Boat.

We will have a look at the maths that are set on Bitesize and do some more reading from the short stories that I found on line.

Grammar:  Please can you do some short grammar tasks from the attached sheet that I have created.  You have to add a time phrase to the sentences:

Grammar Task

English:  yesterday, you wrote a part of the story and wrote a transition paragraph.  Today, you are going to focus on using speech in your story.

I would like you to use the speech bubble sheet (attached) and make some suggestions of what the boat would be thinking as it makes its way through the dark sea, the sea filled with rubbish and then when she gets broken and battered.  Think of a few sentences that might express how it feels.

thought bubbles

Can you then watch the very short part where the seagulls fly past and mend the sails.  Can you write a few sentences to explain what they did – how this helped the boat and what the boat might have thought.

Maths: bbc bitesize has a maths lesson for either year 2 or year 3.

If you prefer, I have included these maths-based challenges that you could do.

outdoor maths game

PSHE – More ideas for today are to think about how we can keep ourselves staying positive and happy.

Mrs Viner is excellent at giving us ideas for keeping well in our minds.  This is another way to do some ‘Self-Care’ to keep you positive.

Write a list:

You need a large piece of paper and a lot of coloured pens or pencils.

You need to write two columns (so draw a line down the middle of the paper)

One one side you are going to write “THINGS I KNOW”  and on the other side “THINGS OTHER PEOPLE TELL ME”

In the first column, you are going to list all the things that you KNOW you are good at doing, or you are good at being.  You could add anything that is positive and that is something you are aware of for yourself.

In the second column, you are going to write a list of all the things other people tell you that are positive.  Your parents will be telling you things all the time about how special you are, how wonderful you are, what lovely hairy you have etc.  You need to remember all the lovely things that people say about you – include your friends and me!  I have said some good things about all of you too.

Your list should be colourful, LONG and full of positive things about you.

When you finish the list – decorate the page and turn it into a picture by adding a pretty border.

Keep this and keep looking it at it.  You might persuade someone else in your family to make one too – Mums and Dads need plenty of encouragement you know!


Have a super day

Mrs Cooke.

Rabbits Home Learning for Friday 26th June

Good Morning – and it’s FRIDAY!

Time for some spelling tests, some times tables tests and some grammar tests!  (What?  URGGHHHH? But I thought you liked tests!)

Spellings:  I would like you to create a wordsearch please.  Write the spelling words (correctly!) and jumble them inside other letters.  These are all animal words so you could give the clues at the bottom with a description of each of the animals in the list.

English:  For today can you continue with the film that you watched on Wednesday but for today I would like you to write a story plan.  You need a piece of blank paper and you will watch the film again – then plot out the key points in the story.  Beginning, the next part, the way the characters develop, the key moment and then how the story winds down to the end.  Please plot this on your piece of paper using words but some sketches if you wish.  It is important that you understand the way that the story takes a journey.

Maths:  I hope you did well with the on line games yesterday.  For today I have set some maths tasks on the following links:


PWO_Age_6_7_measuring  Year 2

PWO_Age_7_8_addition_subtraction  Year 3

Project:  Final Day.

You should have some journal entries about the strange animals that you have discovered.  I also asked you to answer some questions from watching films and then to make crazy animal creatures from pictures.

For today:  The zoos in England and Wales have struggled during this lock-down as they are very expensive to run and then need to keep their animals well fed, safe, comfortable, clean and healthy.  I know that Chester Zoo and Borth Zoo both struggled with not having enough money at times.

Your task for today is this …  Think about the most wonderful zoo you could imagine – what would it have?  What animals would you want in your zoo?  How would you feed them?  How would you keep them happy?

I would like you to make a brochure, or a poster all about your amazing zoo.  You can look at the websites for other zoos if you like – Whipsnade is also amazing.

Your brochure / poster needs to tell the reader all about the variety of animals that you have – where they come from and how you make them feel at home in your zoo.

Think about what images you will include on your brochure.

Think about what is important to you about the animals – is it the rare animals?  Is it ensuring they don’t go extinct?

Have a good time imagining the perfect home for these animals.

I hope to hear from you with your ideas and examples of work.


Mrs Cooke.
