Week Beginning 18th January

We hope you had a lovely weekend and were able to get outside.

We have really enjoyed seeing the children on our daily check-ins.  I hope you agree that this is a valuable way of the children keeping in contact with us and  it has been lovely seeing their smiling faces. We do miss them!

May I take this opportunity to thank you for uploading your child’s work on to Hwb.  It is amazing to see how they are engaging with the tasks. We will comment on their work and award them daily stars and stickers.

This week, remember to check in at 9:30am or 12:40pm on Teams, using the same link as last week. The sessions are a great time to speak to Mrs Warner and Miss Lowe and to have live phonic and spelling session with Mrs Mortimer.

Here we go again!

Please find below links to this week’s Maths and Literacy/Iaith planning.

It has been lovely speaking to the children during our daily check-ins. If your child hasn’t accessed these yet, please do so. Your child has been emailed the link to their school Hwb email account. Logging in details, were sent home with the children, in their packs before the holidays. They are inside the cover of the green book.

For children who are currently not in school, you can access the home learning on Hwb (Miss Lowe’s and Mrs Warner’s Folder) and via the links below. We will be setting Maths and Iaith/Literacy planning each week, alongside a selection of other curriculum activities. We will give your child guidance about the activities during the check-ins. Next week,  we will post some videos about phonics and spellings.

This week we would like you to complete a Joe Wicks workout, either a live session or choose an old workout and have a go at that please!  Try to upload a photo onto Teams or you can email evidence to us!  We will also be having a go in school!

‘Joe Wicks is restarting his online PE lessons, to help families keep fit during lockdown.’

The personal trainer told the BBC he wanted to, “Give children structure,” and help them feel, “more optimistic”.

He said that live sessions would run on his YouTube channel at 09:00 GMT on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

We also recommend that your child follows the ‘Cosmic Yoga’ sessions on Youtube. They are excellent, calm the mind and destress the body. Link below!

Mud, Mud everywhere!

The children have been writing some amazing instructions about their magical cloaks and shoes. They had some wonderful ideas. In maths, we have been exploring larger numbers and looking at doubling and halving numbers. You will have all noticed that the mud kitchen is a real hit. Homemade mud and stone soup is definitely our favourite!

Exciting Week!

What an exciting week we have had! The children have enjoyed following instructions to make magical hat. We had some interesting things we needed to find to make them; the horn of a unicorn and the snot of a giant! On Wednesday, we had fun in our Olympic maths session. We were amazed at how many jumps the children could do in one minute. The children have been continuing to learn about castles. This week, we designed and built bridges to help the knights and princess cross the moat.

Thank you to everyone who has sent in a pair of wellies for their child. If you child hasn’t brought them in yet, please can the do so.
