Monday 22nd February 2021


Welcome back and we hope you had a wonderful, well deserved rest over half term. New workpacks containing additional resources for the next two weeks were available to collect prior to half term, if you have been unable to collect them they will be available on Monday 22nd from school. If you are having difficulties with collection please let us know.

 This week (22.02.21) will include the usual weekly plans, with activities and links to online lessons, found below. There will be an additional two English zoom sessions on Wednesdays and Fridays. English this week is focussing on the fabulous text 'The Lion Inside' by Rachel Bright and Jim Field. Maths will be the regular Wednesday and Friday slots, this week we will look at doubles, number facts, revision of pairs to 10 and 20 and using known number facts to solve word problems.   

 Our usual Monday 'catch up' session this week will give us a chance to chat about our half term activities and we will also discuss Lenten promises. If you have done any craft, pictures, models etc you want to share have them ready! On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we are offering Phonics in our Zoom sessions.  Also whole school assemblies take place on Monday and Friday. 

We begin our new Geography topic this half term, 'Why don't penguins need to fly?'. This is a great toic which explores the importance of location, weather and climate. We look at how this affects natural geographic features in our environment and how living things adapt to survive in such places. The first lesson focusses on the text, 'Where is home, Little Pip?'. Plans and resources can all be found in the document section. 

I hope this sounds manageable and look forward to seeing you during the week.

Each child should have their own login details for both Purple Mash and Active Learn. Rather than allocate two new books per week on Active Learn, I have set Bug Club to 'Auto Progress' to allow your children unlimited books. I hope this is useful. Both online learning platforms offer a great range of learning  activities that children have previously enjoyed in school.

Remember if you want to contact us, or send work/photographs in, please use the Class One email -

 Keep smiling! 

-Many thanks
