Good morning ! What a wet start to the day !


PARENTS : Over the next few days you will all be receiving new log in details for School Jam and also a new tool called Bug Club . School Jam is the same as before and offers maths activities to do at home and Bug Club provides an online reading learning program . These have all been set to your child’s reading ability and they can make progress through reading every day and moving onto the next level when completed . Make sure when your child reads the online books that they answer the questions based on the book that they have read . These log in details will be coming though to you via email and over your weekly phone calls . These activities are extra bits to help at home. There will still be guidance and activities here everyday .


PHONICS: Day 2 of RWI Planning on the School website . Ask your child which colour group they were in so you can access the correct planning , if you’re unsure get in touch.


TALK FOR WRITING: Yesterday I uploaded a PDF for this weeks literacy plans based on the story of Max the Labrador . Continue working your way through those activities .


MATHS: using a stop watch or timer on your phone , challenge your child to order their number cards one to twenty in a specific amount of time . Try one minute ! If they get really good reduce this down to 45 seconds ! 


UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD: It’s raining , it’s pouring the old man in snoring ...... Rain rain go away !!

Its very wet today but I want you to go and have fun in it !

Go and play in the rain , here are some ideas :

* put a cup outside and measure how much rain falls today 

* put on your coat and wellies and splash in puddles

* play with your water toys or figures in the rain 

* see if things float in the puddles

* try and catch the rain on your tongue 

* build a shelter to protect you from the rain
