Good Morning 🌈 Week 12 Monday 13th July 💙 Home Learning😊

Hi,

I hope you have had a good weekend. It feels very strange to be writing the last online home learning post for our class. Who would have thought this would of played such a big part of in the children’s learning when we started in September. You and your children have been amazing, thank you.

Please could reading books be returned this week so they can be sorted for September. If it is not possible please send me a message via ClassDojo.

The children returning to school will be completing the speed sound sessions, maths activities and activities in garden area or Forest School, weather permitting. In the afternoon you have the option to complete the other activities suggested. Please listen to your child read every day.

Maths activities this half term can all be found at whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/ There is a video clip and activity for each day. The activities look engaging and a lovely creative way of developing your child’s maths.
