Good morning! We hope you have had a lovely weekend and managed to enjoy some of this lovely weather. We welcome you to another week of home learning and once again may we say how proud we are of all the children with their amazing work! We would like to say a huge well done and thank you to all the grown ups who are supporting you to achieve this! We have altered slightly the way our activities are presented to you this week. Each day we will put our usual videos on so keep checking for who the VIP is! We will also put our morning activities on but we are aware that as everyone juggles home life with increased working from home commitments it is hard to fit everything in so we have created a new page on our class page called 'Afternoon activities' here you will find a 'pick and mix' of activities you can dip into during the week. You can choose to do as many or as few of these as you like. We have put them in in this format so you if you have more time on one day than another you might feel like doing an extra activity. If you do complete any of these activities please remember to share them with us on the school blog or via email. We hope you have a lovely day

This week's book is all about aeroplanes we hope you enjoy it.
Please read the book called 'Aeroplane Adventure' (link below and there's no need to sign up ). It's all about Anna and Juan travelling on an aeroplane to see their Grandma. Remember, this is the first read of the book so you may need to do lots of sounding out to read the words and that's fine! Please note the American spelling of aeroplane in this book, the word only appears a few times but may be worth discussing the difference in spelling.
It's Monday, which means its time to have a little spelling test and start learning some new spellings! Please test your child on last weeks' spellings and set them a new set of spellings for this week. Remember to carry on practising any spellings your child struggled with previously. If you want your child to have an extra challenge use the words from the spelling lists in sentences.
Today's maths lesson is focusing on making equal groups by grouping which is a follow on from the practical activity done last week. Use the PowerPoint presentation lesson 2 to learn about equal grouping. There is a worksheet to complete called 'Making equal groups-grouping' and then an additional activity called 'Create your own equal groups' if you wish.
