Week Commencing 30th March 2020

Hello everyone,


A BIG thank you for all your support with your children's learning at home. I have loved seeing the pictures and videos you have been sending me, showing the fabulous learning taking place. Thank you and please keep sending, of course if you get chance!  You are all doing a fantastic job especially as I know so many of you are still working from home.


Could you also say a big 'Well Done' to all the children for the super learning they are doing and although I miss them all lots, they are still making me super proud! 


Below is the next week's learning and I have added Easter home learning activities as I thought it would be nice to have some Easter themed learning.The children can choose these activities or continue with the Home learning activities that I uploaded last week. The choice is yours :) 


Again, please do not hesitate to contact myself this week on Dojo, if you have any questions or queries.


I am so grateful for all the support you are giving in these difficult circumstances but please do look after yourselves. Keeping safe and well is the most important thing to us. 


Kindest regards, Miss Hutchinson. 

Please can I ask the children continue to undertake the following, everyday, where possible:


Reading – Reading their school book by applying their phonic knowledge and skills, with the support of an adult.  Please continue to write in their school reading diary when this takes place. I understand that their school books will be finished in the next week or so, therefore, I am going to try and find free books online or take photos of school books to support the continuation of reading appropriate to their phonic phase.  


Additionally, please continue to enjoy a range of home books together to engage children in the pleasure of reading.


Name Formation – Practising their full name using the name card provided in their green learning journal. As the children develop their confidence, please hide the card and use it just to support letters the children are unsure of.


Letter and number formation – Practising letters and number formation will continue to support their writing and number work. Please see the formation sheets provided in their green learning journal that was sent home.
