We hope that you all had a great half term and first week back to remote learning (or school for the key worker children). It has been a week of positives with the news that school will be open again for everyone on 8th March. We are really looking forward to this and also being able to see you on our second ‘live’ session next Thursday. It was great to see those who were able to attend but apologies to those of you who had some technical difficulties joining. Fingers crossed that this doesn’t happen next week.
Thank you ever so much for the emails we have received of children’s work and also the work that has been uploaded directly into Google Classroom. Please remember to ‘Hand-in’ the work, even if you haven’t got anything to upload.
In English this week, the children have started to look at a new text ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, a well-loved traditional tale. We have seen some lovely work inspired by this story. This has linked with our work in Guided Reading, where we have been looking at a different traditional tale – The Three Little Pigs.
In maths, the children have been looking at ordering numbers to 50 and counting in 2s and 5s.
The key worker children took part in Paul Wood’s karate session on Tuesday and it was good to see some familiar faces at home joining in too. We have planted our kidney beans and look forward to seeing what happens! How did you get on at home? We have also started DT this term and this week we discussed our favourite sandwiches in preparation for designing and making our own.
Please remember to try and keep as active as you can. What have you done this week to keep active?
Here are some useful links.

And don’t forget…STREET TAG!
We will leave this information here each week for easy access.
Please remember to reinforce the correct pencil grip at home; the correct letter and number formation.
This video shows how the children are taught in Foundation using the Read Write Inc scheme but please note that we use a ‘curly’ k and the ‘f’ has a longer tail that carries on below the line.

The following video will reinforce the correct number formation for 0-9
Have a great weekend.
We will post the work for next week on Sunday at 8pm
