It’s great to see the children enjoying being back at school and the classroom is full of bright colours, life and learning! We are so excited to start our new book - Traction Man! He has already been on one adventure to the Planet Duvet and we know he will go on many more over the next few weeks...
On Tuesday, we went down to the woodlands for the first time and explored all the activities and exciting things that are down there. We will hopefully be going to the woodlands once a week in one of our PE slots so that we get to take part in some forest school activities.
We have decided not to send homework out for the first half term. Instead, I will be sharing online games or activity ideas on this webpage that you could do at home to supplement their learning in class. This is of course in addition to reading their home reader.
Home reading books
To avoid lots of books and reading records coming to and from school, we are only sending one book out each week and collecting/changing the books each MONDAY. I would recommend reading the book once, then reading it again a day or two later with better fluency. You could read the book a final time and discuss the characters, the story, why things happened, if it reminds you of other stories etc. You are of course, welcome to read other books from home or online.
Stay tuned for more games, photos and updates!
