Good morning to you all!


Thank you so much for sharing your work with Mrs Davies and I, we love to see what you have been doing. Enea and Olivia have been learning about the 5 essential things we need to survive. Can you remember them? Here is their super work. smiley

This is your second read of your book today, either 'Baboons' or 'On Your Bike'. As this is the second time you have read this your reading should be becoming more fluent. So you know what fluent reading of the book sounds like it would be a good idea for a grown up or older child to read the book to you before reading it again yourself. Remember you can read with a partner and take it in turns to read a page each. 

Read, Write Inc. Books

We love your child to read as often as possible so we would encourage you to read some of the other books on the Oxford Owl website along with books you already have at home. 


Today I would like you to continue to practise the letters from the 'Curly Caterpillar' handwriting family. Please use the sheets for 'o, q, e, s, f'. Why do you think they are called the 'Curly Caterpillar' family?

Year 1

Today you carry on thinking about using number bonds to add one. Watch the video and then complete the rest of the worksheet which you started yesterday. If you completed the worksheet it is always good to keep recalling all the number bonds to 10. I have added some extra maths resources which you may enjoy doing and also some maths games!

This afternoon you have a music lesson and some PSHE work to complete. 



I'm hoping that you have all received a username and password via email for Yumu. Yumu is linked to our Charanga music scheme which we use in school. Yumu makes it possible you to access these wonderful music lessons at home each week. Today I would like you to complete lesson 1 of our unit of work called 'Zootime'. I hope you enjoy it! 

PSHE and Citizenship

Our lesson today is called 'Shining Stars'. I would like you to think about what your 'star' qualities are and what qualities you would like to develop. Share the PowerPoint and discuss the questions. 

Use the resource to write your star qualities on. It may be nice to cut this out and then decorate it however you wish. Display the following page from the PowerPoint to help you think about the different qualities.
