I hope that you have had a lovely weekend and have had the opportunity to enjoy the sunshine. This last week of home learning is linked to the Julia Donaldson book, Superworm. I am so looking forward to the children and adults all being back together from next Monday.
This week I have decided to split the maths into two separate groups. There will be a lesson relating to money, which is aimed at the children in Reception and there will a further lesson more suitable to the children in Nursery. You can of course access both lessons if you feel that your child would enjoy them.
Mrs Bellamy has planned some Phase 1 phonics activities that will be suitable for all the children in Class 1. I have also attached the Phonics video for the children in Reception. Today we are learning the ‘oo’ digraph as in ‘boot’.

I have attached the worksheet but there is no need to print, your child could just draw on a piece of paper. I have also attached the lesson PowerPoint in case you find this useful. I look forward to seeing any photos. The children in school will also be doing music tomorrow. I have uploaded a new lesson to Charanga (the online music program). Your child should have received log in details either via email or via a sheet in their bookbag. Please let me know if you need a reminder sent.

I have attached Thursday’s maths lesson below on comparing. If you want to do the activities you will need some Lego, Duplo, blocks or similar as well as some threading beads or pasta and string.
I have also attached a link to the science that the children in school will be doing. We have moved on to learning about plants and the different parts of a flowering plant and tree. The activity is to draw a tree and include roots, a trunk, branches and leaves and a flowering plant to include, roots, stem, leaves and a flower. If your child can then name each part of the plants that would be great, this can be done verbally if you wish. When out and about look for different plants, there are lots of snowdrops and crocus’ around now and a few daffodils making an appearance. I have also attached the PowerPoint to the lesson, this may be clearer that watching it on the video.
I look forward to seeing photographs of these activities.

Hopefully, we will have more of an idea on a full return to school by Monday evening. At the moment we are continuing with our rotation of staff, Mrs Robinson, Mrs Gleadow and Miss Morgan will be in school for the next two weeks with Class 1 and 2. I will be available throughout both weeks via email.
Free fruit for schools is available each day within the school and we will be continuing with tuck shop, at 20p per day. This can be paid daily, weekly or half-termly via cash or by BACs to the office. If your child is in Reception, they are able to have a free school packed lunch, cheese, ham, tuna or egg sandwich, crisps, yoghurt, fruit and a biscuit, otherwise, a packed lunch is required to be brought from home. Nursery children require a packed lunch if staying all day.
The children will be making rockets and spaceships in school this week. If you have any small boxes eg breadstick size, frubes, tubes, tissue boxes they would be very useful.
