Today is our last school day before the summer holiday. We are all so very proud of you and how everyone has managed throughout these strange times.  It is such a shame we can not share the last day together, but we are looking forward to the day when we can see you again and return to some normality.

We have all shared so many good times over the school year and I want you to think about your favourite memories and the things you have enjoyed over the time we were at school.

Friday 17th July Awards Home Learning

Well done, we have got to the end of the school year.  Normally we would have issued award certificates and had class and whole school celebrations to mark the end of the year.  Today, I would like you to create your own awards certificate, use your imagination, be creative and make it special to you.  Then ask a member of your household to complete your certificate, writing on it why they are awarding you this certificate.  Finally, have a picture taken of you receiving your certificate, be proud of what you have achieved!

You all deserve a certificate for your efforts throughout the school year, especially during lockdown.  Well done everyone!  Please do send a picture so we can see why you have been awarded your certificate.

Here are some examples:

To start with, please listen to the story which is being read by one of the authors – Axel Scheffler. If you have the book at home, why not read alongside Axel!

Today I want you to create your own part to the story.  You are going to think of a new character for the Stick Man to meet on his journey, this could be an animal or a person.  I want you to draw a picture of the character you want to use and the setting where the Stick Man meets your character.  Next, please write about the character, describing what it is and what it is doing, followed by how the Stick Man meets it.  Finally, please write about how the Stick Man would feel meeting your character.

Remember when writing I expect you to use:

  • capital letters
  • full stops
  • phonics for spelling
  • finger spaces 
  • neat handwriting

Cheeky Challenge:  Why did you choose this character?

To start with, please listen to the story which is being read by one of the authors – Axel Scheffler. If you have the book at home, why not read alongside Axel!

Today we are going to concentrate on the feelings Stick Man experiences throughout the story.  There are many different feelings experienced at different times during his adventure, we can see these through the illustrations in the book.  During a day we ourselves can experience many different feelings, and this is exactly what happens to Stick Man.

I want you to think about these different feelings, why you think he is feeling these and what Stick Man looks like to make you associate that feeling at that time.  Throughout the story, Stick Man may feel:

  • happy
  • lonely
  • scared
  • angry
  • excited
  • sad

I have attached a template below, or you can create your own. Please remember to use:

  • capital letters
  • full stops
  • phonics for spelling
  • finger spaces
  • neat handwriting

Stick Man’s feelings

Cheeky Challenge: Are there any other feelings Stick Man has experienced?  How do you know?
