Week Commencing 1st June 2020

Welcome back, 


I hope you have all had a fantastic half term break and enjoyed this beautiful weather together as a family! As always, I hope you are all ok and are well! 


I know I recently I posted about our new theme of learning on Dojo but just encase you didn't see it, our new learning topic is inspired by the story written by Dr Seuss, ‘Oh the places you’ll go!’. This new learning will link to different places of interest where the children can reflect on past experiences of where they have been as well as places they may go once lockdown is over such as the zoo, the farm and the seaside. Each different place will particularly explore the different animals or creatures that live there!  We will finish the topic with a reflection of the year and looking ahead to year one (Where I know I will miss them terribly, just like I am now!).


Our next Zoom is scheduled for Tuesday at 10.15am and all details will be again on Class Dojo. I am really looking forward to seeing France class again! This week we will have a scavenger hunt and a story time! Thank you for continually supporting me with this!


Also, a BIG congratulations is needed for Miss Nahla for being our REACH star just before half term in our school online assembly. You have continually embraced all home learning in a positive manner and I am very proud of you! I wonder who is going to be our next REACH star? 


In our 'Storytime' section, both myself and Mrs Homer have read you a story. But... Guess what! Mrs Homer has turned into something! I hope you enjoy them :) 


As you already know, school is open this week just for key worker children, and further clarification for the following weeks will be given this week. Please just bear with us on this and we will let you know details as soon as possible.  


As always, I wish you all to keep well and safe. Please don't hesitate to contact myself if you need any support or have any questions with the home learning.  

Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to seeing France class again on Tuesday in our Zoom session. 


Kind regards, Miss Hutchinson.
