This week in English we have been learning about space. We listened to a story about a game of space ball. There are two teams the 'Sage Spots' and the 'Sunny Yellows'. The message in the story is that we should not choose to not like eachother because of the way we look. We have chosen our favourite parts of the story.
Please send us more pictures of your favourite part of the story.

Week 5 starting Monday the 18th of MayHave a look at this week's learning from Oak National Academy. Our parent's who have been using these resources have highly recommended them. In particular because the activities are engaging and everything you need is in one place. I have been using these materials with the children currently attending school and they quite like them. It even has links to Joe Wick's daily workout. What more could you ask for ? This week the children can learn about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and plant some seeds. In Numeracy they can learn about 1 less. The Foundations section has lots of cross curricular learning.
