Wednesday 20th May 2020: UPDATE

Hi everyone, can I first of all say a massive thank you to all the parents I got the opportunity to speak to on Monday. You are all doing an amazing job and it has been lovely to hear about all the activities you have been getting up to. If I didn't get through to you I will try again next Monday. Sometimes it may come up as private number when I ring. I know that the children sometimes struggle to get motivated but do not worry. Just try to do little bits as often as you can! This week I have attached: 

 

> The battle to do work (How to get children motivated)

Monday 20th April: UPDATE

Thank you so much for all the lovely telephone conversations that I had last week. You are all doing an incredible job home schooling and it was lovely to speak to the children about all the fun things that they had been up to! 

Again I've attached some links below for the children. You do not have to print them out, I'd just get your child to write the answers on paper. I also had some lovely conversations about life skills the children can learn for example, putting the washing machine on, how to hoover, how to make a sandwich, how to sew etc.

Spring 2

Welcome back to Spring 2! We are really excited to use Stay! by Alex Latimer this half term. We will work on writing factfiles about how to look after animals as well as writing commands. We are going to have a really big push on Reading and Writing this half term as preparation for our SATS in May. 

In Maths we are going to be looking at different themes each week! See the newsletter for more information! 

 

 All key dates are also available on our school newsletter. 

 A few reminders: 

> Homework now is every two weeks. Dates are on the newsletter. 

> Spelling tests will be on a Wednesday

> PE is on a Friday. Children will need joggers as they will be outside for break and lunch in their PE kits. They will have their coats on but joggers will help to keep them warm.
