Friday 1st May

Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!


Thank you to everyone who sent in a small bit of video to help make our 500miles video. It is certainly a fantastic little compilation what will be a lovely little memento of our time during Home Learning. The message of Keep on, Keep going is a reminder that in these unprecendented times we are all in this together and by staying positive and staying connected we will get through this. 

smileyLook out for it on our Welcome page later today!!!smiley


It is VE day next Friday 8th May. Miss Anderson has compiled the poster below with some ideas and challenges about how you can celebrate this historic occasion - including a bit of cooking!

Celebrating VE day at home!

Challenge of the day!

Daily Phonics lesson:

Keep on, keep going!! You are doing a great job with your daily phonics. I have seen some super work on Tapestry which has made me feel really proud. By doing this daily lesson you are practising your phonics, your reading and your writing. It is so important that you don't forget the 45 phonemes and all the Tricky Words we have learnt so far.


Remember - Practise makes Better!!


1. Alphabet Song

A nice catchy alphabet song that we have used in class. Just watch out for the american z sound!





2. Have a go at these games on Phonics Play. We have used them in school and the website is free at the moment. Just type in Username:  march 20   Password:  home

You will need to download Adobe Flashplayer.

3. Please work through the following powerpoint with your child. Please don't feel they should know all the words - just encourage and help them when they need it! They should be able to use their phonics to read a lot of the story but will need you to help with the words in purple. Just reading the story together is also fine.

4.   You say this sentence, sound out each word and your child writes it down. Watch out for the tricky words -                                                              I  can  see  the  seal  swimming  in  the  sea.

Remember  - Start your sentence with a capital letter

     Leave finger spaces

         End your sentence with a full stop.

      Read your sentence


           Well done!  yes  



Working together
How many spoons fill a cone?
o You need some small cups, sand or rice or small, dry pasta pieces; also a piece of A4 paper, not too thin, and sticky tape.

What to do

o Curl the paper to create a cone shape.
o Stick it in place using Sellotape.
o Make sure that the bottom is closed so that nothing can fall through.
o Don’t worry about the top being wide.

o Now, take a spoonful of dried pasta or rice or sand. Tip it into your cone.
o Take a second spoonful and do the same again.
o Keep going like this until the cone is as full as it can be.
o How many spoonfuls did your cone hold? Record the number.
My cone held 7 spoons of pasta.
o If possible, repeat with another type of filling, e.g. rice
(It should hold the same number of spoons!)
My cone held 7 spoons of rice.
