Spring Term


Final week of home learning.


We have finally arrived at our final week of homelearning!  The planning files have been uploaded.  They should link in with the resources in your child's home learning pack for week 2.

We have tried to include a range of maths, literacy, phonics and craft activities.  Please feel free to look through and choose the activities you feel would most benefit your child.

This week there are several numeracy, literacy and understanding the world links posted on the plans to lessons provided by The Oak Academy.  These have been funded by the DFE to support the teaching of children during lockdown.

You will also find a maths scavenger hunt.  This is to encourage the children to think about number sentences.  There is also a spot the difference activity which your child may wish to do.

As books cannot be transferred from school to home and back again at the moment, your child has been issued reading books on  Relevant logins will be in their original home learning packs.  The site is still being checked regularly and more books allocated when necessary.  There is the option of accessing questions about the books which some parents have found to be a useful activity to do with their child. 

You will find links on this page for lots of useful websites for maths activities, phonics games, online stories and activities and reading support.

This week your child will be invited to several Zoom meetings.  The aim is to give your child some face to face interaction and to catch up with them.  On Monday we will be having a whole class Zoom meeting.  This is to give children the chance to see each other at the start of the week.  We will be sharing our book of the week which is  'A  Gruffalo's Child'.  I will also talk through a literacy activity with the children. 

Your child's small group Zoom session on Tuesday will have a phonics focus.  It would be great if your child could have a pencil and a piece of paper for this.  We will be starting with some dough disco so they will also need some play dough.

The whole school is having a 'Zoom free Wednesday' and on Thursday we will be celebrating World Book Day.  You will have received details for this from Mrs Monaghan and Mrs Veevers.  We look forward to seeing the children dressed as their favourite book character if they wish.

On Friday we will have another whole class Zoom meeting which will give the children the chance to see each other at the end of the week.  This is an opportunity for them to share anything they have done or any news they have also.  We will be able to share 'Our Gallery' display board too.

We are really looking forward to welcoming all of the children back on Monday 8th March.  We hope that the children are all excited too.  If you feel that your chuld is anxious or nervous about returning to school then please let us know if we can help in any way.  We would be happy to make a phone call if you feel that this may help your child.

Finally, a huge thank you for your continued support and communication.  We hope that this has really helped the children to still feel connected to their class.  We are looking forward to returning to regular updates on the gallery page.

Take care,

Mrs Symes and Mrs Williams
