Tuesday 9th February

Happy Tuesday Holly and Hazel Class,


Today we will be continuing with our Chinese New Year celebrations and look at the story of The Great Race with lots of activities linked to the story.  In Literacy watch the shadow puppet story and make your own shadow puppets, retelling the story. Maths, can you sequence the story using positional language and have a go at the number bonds 5 and 10 worksheets.  I would also like to make a firework picture choosing which form of media you want as our creative activity today. 

Each day we will continue to follow the school timetable including activities in Maths, English, Creative, and Physical for you to complete. Plus some optional fun additional activities. 


Can you all have a go at the Londons Youth Games Challenges week 4, How many shuttle runs can you complete in 30 seconds? Please see the demonstration on the school story Monday 08th February. It does not matter how many you do, it is about the more who participate in these events. Please represent and support Warrender School and Hillingdon Borough. Thank you.
