Spain Class say 'Thank you!'

Still image for this video
We have been so touched by your kind words and gestures during the lockdown process but yet again you blew us all away. All of the adults in Spain Class send their appreciation and thanks for the video but for being simply amazing! You have been so full of positivity, praise and generally just been the light at the end of the crazy tunnel - we couldn't have done this without your support. THANK YOU!

Weekly update:

Since the start of our home learning journey we have covered all of the basic skills that we would like the children to have secured by the end of Year 1. Completing these home learning activities will have helped your child to feel more confident with Year 2 and help ease the transition. This week we have tried something different. In English and Maths you will find assessment materials and assessment style questions for you to cover to help gauge where any gaps in their learning may be. We would recommend that any assessment documents are completed independently first to highlight their gaps and then you can look over these together and correct any misconceptions. Please remember that we understand you are not teachers nor are we are not expecting you to become one, these activities are simply to allow your child to apply their learning and then recap where any errors can be seen.


A huge well done to Suman for being my home learning hero! You are an incredible little girl with an outstanding work ethic. Like I said in Mrs Houseman's REACH assembly - you will be missed! Huge congratulations to the Spain bubble superstars + Lucy C for being outstanding as always. We know it hasn't been easy returning without all of your friends but you never once let this stop you from succeeding. You've had worked hard, demonstrated ALL of your REACH values and made the journey fun along the way!



Please remember to send us any of the work you do complete on dojo or email as we would love to celebrate your achievements. Dojo points and golden tickets are up for grabs this week - if you secured any last week then you will find these in your inbox by Monday afternoon! Remember we like to see anything wonderful you are doing - whether this be academic, extra curricular or just simply you being amazing with your REACH values or behaviour. Everything is welcome so we can celebrate your achievements and nominate you for Mrs Houseman's REACH assembly on Fridays - I wonder who it is going to be this week? 


Please remember to send me a photo in your school uniform so we can try and piece together a class photo. I am still missing a few!
