I hope you are all OK?
Thank you so much for all the wonderful photos you have sent over the past few days. All of you are doing a fantastic job with your learning at home. It is great to see your writing coming on and you are all trying so hard. As you are now nearly Year One you must try to remember your capital letters; finger spaces and full stops (Can you remember the actions I taught you in class?).
It is lovely to hear that you are enjoying the Hungry Caterpillar story. I was wondering if today you could have a go at writing the days of the week and learn the days of the week song, you could watch the video included and try to sing along. We can then sing it all together when we are all back at school.
Over the next few days I will be giving your parents a call to see how things are going, if you have any questions you want to ask me let your grownups know.
Parents – As a school we have decided to give all families a short phone call to see how things are going. All class teachers will be doing this over the coming days. If you have any questions I will be happy to answer them.
I just wanted to say you are doing a fantastic job with home learning with your children, I totally understand the challenges of trying to get your children to complete school work at home. Please do not feel pressured; do what you can; but most importantly enjoy the time you have. The most important thing you can do is talk lots to them, talk will provide them with a rich vocabulary that will support their reading and writing. If you need to take a day off from school work and let them play do so.
