Dear Parents and Carers,
Happy new year! I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas of some kind, despite everything that is going on. We all want to say a big thank you for the lovely Christmas gifts! We are very sad not to be open for the time being. We have been adapting and planning for home learning and key worker groups.
Our topic for this term is ‘Explorers!’ We have been inspired by the snow and ice this Christmas, and we will be looking at the book ‘The Great Explorer’ by Chris Judge, about a boy who goes on a journey to the Arctic. We will be finding out about famous explorers and the places they go, and the different climates in the frozen poles and the equator.
We will post work on a Sunday for the week ahead, via Tapestry and the school website. There will be a mixture of worksheets and activities, Oak academy video lessons and some phonics for year 1 from me and Mrs Cooke for year 2 as before. Please send photos of your work – we would love to see it. Feel free to get in touch with any questions or if you would like any support. Miss Harker, Mrs Clune, Mrs Napier-Ford or Miss Seagar will reply – as in the previous isolation – however, please bear in mind there will be times that we are also teaching in key workers or caring for our own children! As before, we are always on the lookout for shooting star children!
We really appreciate all of your support,
Miss Harker, Mrs Clune, Mrs Napier-Ford and Miss Seagar
