Dear Parents


Week 3 of home learning - Keep up the hard work! You are all doing a fantastic job!  


Reading & Phonics

Please listen to your child read a few pages of a book and talk about the book with them.  There is a comments bank on the school website to assist when talking about the book at home and with writing comments in their reading record. I have included a copy of the set 1,2,3 RWinc sounds as well as tricky word bricks. Mrs Hunns also does a phonics session and is uploaded to the school website daily. To maintain the children’s attention, each week we will be using a different story - this week we will be using What the Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks.



With this new topic brings a new maths focus. This term we would have been introducing Money to the children. The classroom would have been set up with a garden centre where children could have used money to buy plants and accessories. The coins we would have used would have been the 1p,2p,5p and 10p. Along with an introduction to money the children would have started work on counting in 2’s.


Topic Work

We are moving onto a new topic this term - On the farm. Over the coming few weeks, I will post topic-based activities you could have a go at completing.



I will continue to use Tapestry daily to set out some tasks to complete with your little ones. From what I’ve seen so far everyone (both grown-ups and children) are doing so well! Please do shout out if you would like any specifics. 


At this difficult time, we still need to remember your little people are little and still need to be exposed to the simple things in life!


Thank you for your continued support at this challenging time.


Good luck, Mrs Morgan
