Welcome to Class 12
Our class team:
Friday 15th January 2021
Today's Zoom sessions will take place at 9.30am and 2.30pm. During our morning session Mrs Hughes will outline the plan for the day. It is important that you come prepared with your TT rockstars (not all children will have this) and Purple Mash log ins. In addition, it is important you have your homework books, reading records and home learning packs (given out during last term). During our afternoon session Mrs Hughes will discuss any areas which you may have found tricky and will chat to you about your day.
Word game- how many words can you think of that start with the first letter of your name? Set a timer for 5 minutes and see how many you can come up with.
Traction Man- today you are going to design your own mask for Traction Man! Use the template below or copy the outline onto a piece of card (e.g. a cereal box). Draw and stick things on the mask which you think Traction Man would love. You might design your own superhero crest! Afterwards describe your mask:
