Friday 15th May 

It's Friday already!  Thank you for all the learning you have sent in this week.  We have really enjoyed reading all your fact files and have seen some great drums and flags.  It has been wonderful to see such a variety of learning about Noah's Ark, including models big and small, mobiles and  pictures.  Miriam has even done an animation! (It is in our video resource centre to watch.)


For your English today we will be emailing you your guided reading and comprehension activities this morning. 

Next week in remote school it will be Book Week. Each day there will be some fun book related activities for you to complete for your English remote learning. There will also be some fun videos for you to watch in the resource centre so keep an eye out for those!

We hope that you all had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend. If you commemorated VE Day in any way and you would like to send us some photos of what you did we would love to see them!


For your English today we would like you to re watch the phonics lesson 'e-e'. It has today's date on it 'Monday 11th'. Then play the 'Four in a Row game' focusing on the long 'ee' sound. You already have this in your phonics pack at home however there is a link below in case you cannot find it. We have played this game using different sounds before so hopefully you will remember what to do. When you have finished can you please practise reading and spelling the tricky words which you also have already in your remote learning packs at home. If you would like a challenge pick 5 of your spellings and practise using them in a sentence. Can you write a sentence which needs an exclamation mark? Or can you use them in a question? 


In Maths this week we are learning about weighing, volume and capacity.  Today we will be comparing weights.  There is a video to watch before you  start.
