Home Learning Week 4 - 25/01/21
Welcome to another week of home learning. We have been really impressed with the work that you have been sending in and hope that you are enjoying the activities set for you. We have had lots of positive feedback about the Teams videos and hope that they are helpful in supporting your child at home. We are really looking forward to an exciting 'Alien' themed week of learning and hope to see you all at the live story sessions!
As always, please contact us if you have any concerns or questions.

The Big Garden Birdwatch
The RSPB are running their annual 'Big Garden Birdwatch' for you to take part in at home between 29th and 31st January. It is a survey to help the RSPB keep track of all the local bird species in the UK at a given time. For details on how to take part please visit the website through the link below. You may like to make your own bird feeder or draw a picture of one of the birds that you have spotted! We would love to see your pictures!
Home Learning - Week 2 - 11/01/21
We hope that you have all had a good week learning from home. It has been lovely to see your photos and videos, so keep sending those in - they really make us smile!
Below is the link to the timetable for next week. You will see that you will need to log onto your new Teams account to listen to us read the story of 'Stuck'. As the week progresses we will invite you to a live story telling session too. We are really looking forward seeing you all!
We want to remind you all that reading daily is really important. Please read the attached letter about Reading in the Early Years. It gives the details of a new 'Book Change Service' that we hope will be of interest.
Above all, please try to enjoy the week ahead and make sure to make some time for play too!!!

Happy New Year and Welcome Back!
We are really disappointed that we are not welcoming your children back into class today in the usual way!
