The children have all been given a home learning book. This is available for them to record any learning they wish, in any way they wish (although well-presented). We hope the suggested timetable will help you and your children to continue with their education effectively.
Each child has been given a My Maths log in and the tasks have been set for the weeks ahead. These tasks can be found on the weekly learning plans. I can see their progress and may offer feedback.
If we close and remain closed for a prolonged time, please do encourage the children to email with their successes. I'd love to hear.
The weekly learning is set from today (18/3/20). Even if you are at school, you are more than welcome to use these learning plans at home.
The plans are flexible for your situation. I hope that they prove helpful.
I wish health and happiness to you all.
It is crucial that children remain active for one hour per day. Here are some links to websites used in school to promote physical activity.

On Thursday 5th March we shall be joining the country in their quest: 'sharing a million stories'. We believe that reading is power and we want to bring 'reading for pleasure' back! So there'll be no dressing up...this is back to books. We want you to bring in an extract from your favourite book; you can bring the whole book if you'd like, perhaps even the whole series...oh blow it, you can bring your library if you have a mind to! We shall be sharing these throughout the day; exploring passionate, peculiar poetry; playing with picture books and working wondrously with words.
Each class will spend time exploring the powerful message of kindness offered by this book:
Perhaps you could take a sneaky peek, if you haven't already. Reading is Power!
Did you know your local library has thousands of ebooks and audiobooks?
You can borrow them, instantly, for free, using just the device in your hand.
All you need is a free library card; to download the app and then away you go!
Our Space poems written by Reception
Cheese - (the moon!)
If I ate the moon,
I would scoop it with a spoon,
It has mountains and no trees
It eats the water and moves the sea.
It looks like a ball, a big round face,
Its far away from Earth because its in space.
Lets hope the aliens don't go to the moon and lock it
Because we might have to blast off in our rocket.
The moon looks like a slice of cheese,
I would love it eat it with a plate of peas!!
The bright moon
The moon is high and bright,
The sun shines and makes it light.
Spacemen wear snoopy hats to speak to Earth.
Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon,
He needs heavy boots so he doesn't zoom.
Dogs and monkeys can go up to space,
I bet travelling in a rocket is really ace.
The moon has holes called craters,
When the sun comes up we say see you later .
Spring Term- Space
What a great start to the new term. We have changed our role play area into a space rocket and have made control panels to enable us to fly!. The children are enjoying finding out all the new facts about space, be prepared to hear all about it!
