Just a reminder that there is no forest school this week.
Thank you to the children who have already completed their homework on hedgehogs. Don't worry if you haven't, I've given you until the end of term - see google classroom for details.

This week we are focusing on Mathletics. We will be using the chrome books to look at several concepts that the children can have a go at with you at home. Please can you take a photo on your phones of your child's username and password, so if the paper copy gets lost they will still be able to log on! Thank you!
As well as practising our numbers and letter formation in the mornings, we are now also practising spellings. This weeks are my, me, he, she, we.
As well as using Mathletics, we have been investigating numbers!

Your child is bringing home a new book today. It is for some of the work that is to be done at home. The tasks will be set and explained here on our web page. We hope you have fun engaging with these activities, so look out for the first one on Tuesday!!
September 2020. It has been lovely to welcome all our new children to our class. They have been very excited to see their friends again!
Our project this term is "Who's there?" This is a forest school project looking at creatures and minibeasts that may live there.
I am now able to let you know that PE will be on a Monday and it is important that the children come to school dressed in their PE kits as they are unable to change in school.
Forest school will be every other Wednesday, from week beginning 21 st. Please can your children bring in labelled wellies and joggers or leggings for this.
I will be sending home the Mathletics logins this Friday, with a small task for the children to do over the week, so they get used to using this programme. I will introduce this on Monday.
