Thank you very much for your hard work and support during the last few weeks-it has been much appreciated. We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back on Monday-not long to go now!
Thank you ever so much for the emails we have received of children’s work and also the work that has been uploaded directly into Google Classroom. We have really enjoyed watching the videos of ‘hot seating’ (Year 2) and of you sharing your favourite stories on World Book day. A big ‘Thank you’ to those who were able to join us for the ‘Live’ meet yesterday and for sharing your books/costumes with us.
In English this week the children have continued their work with ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ (Year 1) and ‘Jack and the Baked Beanstalk’ (Year 2). Children have been analysing pictures, asking/answering questions, sequencing and hot-seating.
In Guided Reading the children have been looking at non-fiction text and building vocabulary as well as writing book reviews. We finished the class text ‘Mr Skip’ by Michael Morpurgo, which was greatly enjoyed. Lots of language has been explored and hopefully this will stick in your ‘sticky knowledge’ so you can use it in your conversation and work!
In maths the Year 2 children have started looking at multiplication whilst Year 1 have been looking at measuring.
Well done for trying out some of the afternoon activities.
We have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday when the children can come to school in their school PE kit. We have an additional session on Friday but they do not need to come to school in their PE kit on this day.
We will keep these useful active links on the blog-could be something for the weekend.
Here are some useful links.

And don’t forget…STREET TAG!
We will leave this information here each week for easy access.
Please remember to reinforce the correct pencil grip at home; the correct letter and number formation.
This video shows how the children are taught in Foundation using the Read Write Inc scheme but please note that we use a ‘curly’ k and the ‘f’ has a longer tail that carries on below the line.

The following video will reinforce the correct number formation for 0-9
Have a great weekend.
We won’t be posting any work this weekend because…we will see you on Monday!
