Hi everyone, I hope you are all ok!

 

Last day of school! It has been a strange summer term for us all but I hope you all have a lovely summer holiday, I can't wait to see you all back in September!

 

Reading, writing, phonics and practicing writing their name would be really beneficial for the children to continue with over the summer holidays. Below are some fab links to websites that will help with this:

For handwriting/ practicing full name - you could use shaving foam, sand, rice etc. to make it more interesting and to allow the children to easily correct any mistakes.

 

Remember, you can always contact me with any questions smiley

 

 

Friday - 

For today and over the summer holidays - it would really benefit the children to be reading regularly at home, practising writing their full name and even continuing to practice their phonics online at home. I will leave lots of great websites that you could look at over the holidays at the top of this page. 

We have created Bow- nessssssss the snake out of stones as a nice activity for the children and our aim is for him to wrap around/ cuddle our school with stones painted by all of the children. Even if your child is not at school, we would love for them to join in so if you would like to paint a stone, we would love that and you can add it to him just outside of the school. Here are some photos of Bow-nesssss so far!! 
 

 

Year 1 - Week 3

  • Can you draw the layout of one of the rooms in your house - see if you can get it as accurate as you can (Year 1)
  • Can you write your full name using different colours for each letter?
  • Choose a new book to read, stop reading in the middle of the story. Can you guess what will happen at the end?
  • Can you fill a cup with water? Can you fill two (different sized) cups with water? Do they hold the same amount of water? How do you know?
  • Look at some ice carefully. What can you see inside? Can you think of/ find a way to melt the ice?

For example using words like whole turn, half turn and quarter turn. You could also just describe where the object was using words like: above, in front of, between, around, near, up and down, forwards and backwards etc. (Year 1 but EYFS could try as a challenge).
