I hope everyone managed to see the message from Boris yesterday. It was the introduction to the writing texts learning for the week. Even if you don’t do all the lessons, the message is worth watching!

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM BORIS JOHNSON

Children’s Mental Health Week

Posted on Sunday 31 January 2021 by Mrs McCormick

Children’s Mental Health Week is taking place on 1-7 February 2021. This year’s theme is Express Yourself.

Here are some activities and ideas for you and your child(ren) to complete at home together.  You can also download it here.

Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.

As parents and carers, you play an important role in your child’s mental health. Check out the free resources.  

Don’t forget to email your teachers with any photos or messages of your activities about Children’s Mental Health Week.

Thank you!

Home learning in different ways

Posted on Friday 29 January 2021 by Mrs Latham

We have had some lovely pictures of children learning in different ways this week like refining problem solving skills, being aware of environmental issues, working on fine and gross motor skills and measuring. There has been word searching, litter picking, baking, bike riding, painting,  mosaic making and operating a digger!

Home learning heroes

Posted on Friday 22 January 2021 by Mrs Latham

We’ve had some lovely emails from people learning at home. Thank you for keeping in touch with your teachers and keeping your brains busy.

Things are feeling tough for some people, but just do what you can and have a day off every now and again, if you need to!

Jake is really enjoying the science videos.

 

Super home learning

Thank you to everyone who has emailed their class teachers letting them know how they are getting on at home.

It has also been lovely to see lots of faces and hear about what you have been doing on our daily class Zoom meetings.

I have enjoyed learning about split digraphs with Mr Parker.

Email your class teacher if you need the invite re-sending.

Let’s read – new books!

Posted on Sunday 03 January 2021 by Mrs Latham

Each class chose £100 worth of new books to refresh our reading corners. They were delivered just before Christmas and the children couldn’t wait to get stuck in! We particularly bought non-fiction (information) books that can be dipped into. The Lego, animal and science-based lift up flap books were a particular hit.

Everyone in 2C would like to wish you all a…

VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

It’s been a great term being back in school with our friends. It may not have been school as we normally know it but it has still been a blast.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the new year. Let’s hope 2021 is a year filled with happiness.
