Roundwood Six Learning From Home

Week beginning 14.12.20

We would have been doing lots of fun Christmas things at school this week so I really hope you can all try to have a fun Christmas themed week at home. All the activities below link to Christmas.

Instead of having a Christmas party, we will have a New Year Party and say hello to 2021. We will make it even better than a Christmas party!

Parents… Oak Academy is also available to use if you wish. If you click on the ‘schedule’ tab and then ‘Year 1’, there is a maths and English lesson for each day of the week.


Here are some English activities that you might enjoy.

The Night before Christmas.

Watch the following read of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas’

Now try write a description of Father Christmas. Maybe you could try and use some of the imagery used in story such as ‘His nose was like a cherry.’ or ‘His belly was like a bowl full of jelly’.

Document 1 Description of Father Christmas

I want you to imagine it is Christmas day. Use the worksheet to write about the different things you would see, smell, taste, hear and touch on Christmas day.  Here is an example. I can see lots of wrapped presents. I can smell delicious turkey. I can hear jolly Christmas music. I can taste sweet chocolates. I can feel a soft ribbon. You could also draw pictures.

Document 2 Christmas day senses

Lots of you have, or have heard of, the naughty Elf on the shelf. You could write down some of the things your elf has been up to or make up some of your own and take photos or draw what they’ve been doing. I would love to see these so you could always email me these photos and descriptions to our email.
