This Friday, we are having a
'screen-free' afternoon to support
Children's Mental Health Week.
We feel that it is important for the children to spend some
time this afternoon away from technology and electronic devices.
Instead, we would like you to take a break and go outside to connect with nature.
Wrap up warm and go for a walk as a family or have a go at completing some of
the outdoor learning activities on our home learning page.
Thank you so much for your on-going support.
We hope that you all have a really lovely weekend.
This week is Children's Mental Health Week and the theme this year is ‘Express Yourself’. The accompanying website has some useful resources for parents.
Also use your child's login for Espresso and there is a short video about Feelings. This can be found in the News section or click on Foundation - PSED - All about me -Videos -Feelings
Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons are available on YouTube for children to watch at home
Practise Set 1 sounds in Speed Sounds Lessons; learn to read Red Words and practise reading and writing using Hold a Sentence.
All lessons will show at 9.30 am each day and be available for 24 hours.
Today's RWI Phonics lessons are now live on their YouTube Channel. Please use link below:
This week we will revisit all the sounds that we have previously taught (e.g. m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k, u , b, f, e, l, h, r sh, j v, y, w, z, th, ch, qu, x and ng). Any practise with these sounds at home will help support your child with their phonics knowledge. This week we will be learning the 'nk' sound. Please scroll down for a copy of this week's letter formation sheet. Please don't worry, if you do not have a printer! Just write the 'nk' sound in a light coloured felt tip for your child to trace over, just as they do on their weekly homework sheets.

At school, we do our main Maths lesson in the morning and this week at home, we are going to follow the online lessons from the Oak Academy.
Also, in school we have a 'Whizzy' Maths session in the afternoons to recap and revise our Mathematical skills. These lessons are really useful for our Maths, similar to how our work in Phonics lessons supports our Reading and Writing. Please click on the crayons labelled with the current day of the week for these activities.
