Learning From Home
If you are unable to be in school, we have some exciting home learning that you can take part in. This way you'll be able to keep on track with the rest of the class. There are lots of activities below for you to do.
We'd love to hear how you are getting on - you can send us photos through your Interactive Learning Diary (ILD) or email.
Don't forget that we have access to lots of online learning too. If you can't remember how to log in then get in touch with your teachers.

Hello, today can you watch the video of Miss Hales reading the story of Little Red Riding Hood in the 'Learning Zone' on your Interactive Learning Diary? Can you then ask your child these questions:
-What did Little Red Riding Hood wear?
-Where did Little Red Riding hood live?
-Who did Little Red Riding Hood live with?
-Who did Little Red Riding Hood go to see?
-What did Little Red Riding Hood take with her?
-Who did Little Red Riding Hood see whilst in the woods?
-What did Grandmother say and do?
-What did the woof do?
-What happened at the end of the story?
-What was your favorite part of the story?
For phonics today can you find a 'cup', 'hat', 'cat', 'tap', 'bin', 'jar' and the 'sun'? Can you practice writing these words and write a sentence with these words in it. For example, 'I have a big black cat'.

Hello Everyone we hope you are all keeping well, safe and busy.
Today is my birthday (Miss Hales) and I would love it if you made me a birthday card and wrote a special birthday message inside it. Could you then please post a photograph of it on your Interactive Learning Diary.
Can you have a 'pretend birthday party' for me and invite 5 friends; maybe your dolls or teddies? Can you then give each friend 5 things each to play with at the party?
Monday 30th March
Hope you are all well and staying safe. This week's activities for home learning are below and we will continue to post suggestions for a couple of additional activities each day.
Many Thanks for your continued support under these difficult circumstances. We have really enjoyed seeing all the wonderful home learning on the ILDs. We have a new feature on ILD, the 'Learning Zone' where we will also add some suggestions of activities on there so do please take a look.
Writing suggestion - Make a card for a loved one that you can't visit at the moment. Let them know what you are up to.
Maths task - Share some objects with you and your family, e.g count out 12 pieces of dried pasta. Can you share it equally between 3? What other numbers can you share equally between 3?
Carole Vordeman Maths site if currently free to parents and has ideas and games from age 3+
Please check out the phonics play website. It is free for parents to access at the moment and the children are very familiar with it as we use it regularly in our phonics lessons.

Some math's ideas to try out -
Friday 27th March
We are starting to add challenges and ideas onto the ILD. Please look at the new function called Learning Zone. There is a PE challenge for you to try.
To keep active you might also like to have a go at Cosmic Kids Yoga and try some Go noodle dances. We particularly like Pop See Co and Milkshake songs.
Please do try and use Bug club daily. There are books to read and quizzes to answer. Once you've read all the books we can move you onto another colour or add more choices.
Can you write a letter or draw a picture to tell Sid what you've been up to? Upload onto the ILD and we will tell him all about what you've done.
Alternatively, could you write a fact file about Sid?
Can you include -
- what he eats
- what colour he is
- how he moves
- how long he is (remember we looked that the skin he shed last week and measured it against Ms. Bennett)
- any other fact you can find out about Corn snakes.
Wednesday 25th March
Look at the pictures below on PDF
Estimate how many pencils/pens you can see in each one.
What was your method?
How else could you do it?
Is there one way that is particularly useful? Why?
You can do this practically with pencils/pens/crayons
Tuesday 24th March
Some writing ideas to use -
1. Shopping list. Go through your cupboards and make a real or imaginary shopping list by calling out different items you need to buy. Get your child to write the list.
2. Write a sensory poem about Spring
Don't forget to upload on the ILD so we can see your learning here at school!
Please remember to log into Bug Club regularly. Do let us know if you run out of items in 'my stuff' and we will allocate you more books or move your child onto a different book band. Once they have read a book it will move to 'my library' and we will be able to see here what you've read.

Welcome to Term 4
We will be starting our new topic 'Why do ladybirds have spots?' next week (week 4) which will continue into Term 5. To kick start our topic we will have an engage session and go on a minibeast safari around the school grounds. As part of PHSE we will be learning about keeping healthy.
Please see our topic overview below and our home learning for this topic.

Welcome to Term 3
We have had a great start to our topic 'Do Cows Drink milk?' The children went to see our chickens and observed them carefully. We will be looking more closely at the animals we would find on the farm and farm produce. We also made some bread and will read the Little Red Hen and other farm stories. We will explore what we already know about farm animals and what we would like to find out about them.
Have you every been on a family visit to the farm? Please send in your photos into class or through the ILD.
Attached is our Topic overview below and Home learning tasks for Term 3.
