Children's Home Learning Week 6

  Week 6   

Hello, I cannot believe we are on week 6! What a great week we are going to have.

Hopefully I will be seeing you all on Monday in our Zoom sessions. You do not need to have a Zoom account just enter the URL  and then the ID and password that your parents received in a text last week. You will then enter a waiting room until the meeting starts. The meeting can only start when there is more than one person in the waiting room. If this happens you will be sent an email after the meeting. 

Don't forget to go on Sumdog, there is an Essex competition on until Thursday, it would be lovely if Class 2 won. The more times you play Sumdog the greater the chance that we will win. 

See how much you remember about Neil Armstrong  by taking part in the Bitesize History lesson (go to our class History page for a link to the lesson). Can you make a blossom tree or a handprint butterfly? Instructions can be found on our art page.

Daily phonics lessons start today for Mrs Barber (10.00 a.m.) and Mrs Woodford's (10.30 a.m.) phonic groups, click on the link on our English phonic page. Please keep on reading and practising your times tables.

Take part in pyjamarama day on Friday 1st May by clicking on the rainbow at the top of our 'Home learning ideas by subject'  page. 

Keep sending me pictures of all the activities that you are doing at home and if you need any ideas look at our subject pages, our new Summer learning or our Home learning weekly pages to see what your friends in Class 2 have been doing. They all look as if they are having great fun. I hope you are too.

Take care  and keep safe.
