Week 8

Hello Noah Class,

It has been so lovely to hear from you this week, especially some people we have not heard from recently. It really does cheer us up keeping in contact with you all.  Please keep sending us your photos and videos via Tapestry and The Home Learning email .  We love seeing them all.

We are continuing with our topic  'How do plants and animals grow?' with re-reading 'The Little Red Hen', but this week we are also taking a look at butterflies and the story 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'.  We would still like you to continue with the regular learning to which you will be familiar with now on the learning chart (it is in black). This regular learning is very important and the need to continuously go over is is import.  It really does lay the foundations for the rest of the children's learning. You can always think of alternative ways to do it.  So for example name writing and tricky words and number writing could be done outside with chalk on the pavement, wall or patio.  Or fill a bucket with water and use a brush and paint the phonic sounds or numbers onto a dry surface.  Use a variety of pens, felt tips, colour pencils, paints, crayons, bath crayons too to practise these activities.  You can play snap/pairs/Kims game withe the phonic sounds/tricky words/numbers to 30.  Or just play board games to help recognise numbers.  Most importantly have fun whilst learning.  Some useful websites are; and for reading and for maths activities. Also the new websites Oak curriculum with lots of resources and bbc bitesize have produced more too.  If you have any worries or queries please get in touch via home learning and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We will continue to check in to see any updates.

Wishing you all good health


Miss Mortimer, Mrs Ruane, Mrs Shaw, Mrs Oldershaw and Mrs Mumford
