It is yet again another strange time for us all. With another potential 6 weeks learning from home. We will be uploading tasks on the website each week for your children to complete at home. Please try to complete as much as you can but also remembering yours and your child/children's health and well being.
This time we will be offering some online sessions to help you and your child. These will begin next week - week beginning 11th. You will receive details of how to join these live sessions later this week and we will also upload a timetable for you.
Don't forget if there is ever anything we can do to support you please do get in contact with us by email. We would love to see some of the children's work completed at home and we will of course give you feedback. As we can no longer use dojo this will need to be sent to us through our email accounts.
Please remember we are also in school teaching keyworker children so may not be able to get back to you the same day, but we will get back to you as soon as possible and within our working hours.
We are always here to offer advice and support.

This week we are looking at what it is meant by 'fair' and 'unfair'. Watch the story below and then have a go at answering the questions. When you have completed this there are some sorting cards, sort these into whether you think they are fair or unfair. If you don't have a printer draw 2 large circles and write some of the ideas into the correct circles or make up your own.
In Science this half term we are focussing on the area of 'Animals including humans'.
This week we are learning about how to care for our pets. We will be finding out what pets need to survive and how their owners can meet their needs.
Please read the information fact sheets about taking care of different types of pets. After this; choose a pet and record the information you found out on the pet file activity sheet. If you don't have a printer, record your information on a piece of paper or tell a person in your household.
This week we be learning about the Christian faith and sharing a story from the bible. The bible is special to the Christian faith and is often read in church and by Christians at home. It is in two parts, the longer part first is the oldest part and is called the Old Testament. The Old Testament contains stories about things that happened to the Jewish people before Jesus was born. It is the holy book of the Jews and is called the Tanakh. The New Testament in the bible contains stories about Jesus, who was himself a Jew. It also describes that happened in the years after he died. The bible also contains four accounts of the life of Jesus written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
Read the story below and then complete some of the activities in the files to show your understanding of the story.
There were some amazing drawings of dragons last week so the clip remains on the website for you to continue to enjoy and support your confidence. This week we’re going to take the dragon to the next step and create it in mixed media. Use whatever you have to hand to collage, draw or paint a dragon. Maybe cut and stick using coloured squares from recycled magazines or food packaging around the home. Continue to investigate tone by using lighter and darker shades of colour. Experiment and explore ways to create different textures and patterns. You may wish to take a look online at some images of dragons to inspire you.
