Whole School Project

This week is Scarecrow Week! We have decided to join in with the village Scarecrow Trail and will be building scarecrows in school. With that in mind, our home learning is focussed all around the theme of scarecrows with particular links to the book/film ‘The Wizard of Oz’. See below for ideas linked to different areas of the curriculum. We would love to see which activities you choose and any scarecrows that you make, so please send photos to us on admin@keyinghamprimary.co.uk or tweet on @keyinghamsch.


- research the history of Captain Tom Moore and his role during World War II


 - research/look at the film industry in 1939 and compare it to today.


- look at the weather phenomenon ‘tornadoes’.


- investigate the state of Kansas, America and compare to England.


- investigate how the brain works, controls movement, speech, co-ordination, etc.



- learn how to draw a scarecrow

Due to Carol Vorderman’s Maths Factor free service ending, we would like you to look at any of the following links for some online maths. If you would rather, Mrs Doves would like you to match numbers to pictures if you are in FS1 or practice numbers up to 10 if you are in FS2. Please see attached the worksheets below.




This week our work will link to scarecrows.

Would you all like to find a picture of a scarecrow or draw one yourselves, then label their body parts and clothes that they are wearing. 

It would also be fun if you learnt how to sing the Dingle Dangle Scarecrow song.



Please feel free to contact the school office if you would like any work printing off.
