Hello Venus Class! 


We hope you have had a wonderful half term and enjoyed the sunshine. Hasn't it been hot! 

Before the holidays, you were learning to create your own animations. We hope you enjoyed bringing your characters to life. We have certainly loved seeing some of your work over email. If you scroll down you will see some of it shared in our class gallery. Well done everyone!


Over the next two weeks, our learning will be SUPER HEROES!! Your English will be combined with lots of superhero Art and Design! You will be creating your own characters, villains and comic strips . You can find all the lesson plans within the PDF below.


We hope you have fun creating your superheroes and comics. We cannot wait to see them. Good Luck! 



Please ensure you complete one English and one Art task each day. You will also need to do the daily Maths and Guided reading tasks too. Towards the bottom of our page are also other activities you may be interested in, such as Joe Wicks workouts and our reading or Blue Peter badge challenges!
