I hope you are all well.
Better days are coming!
Welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely Easter break. We have begun the term full of excitement as we have the ‘Living Eggs’ programme in school. This provides the children with the opportunity to watch chick hatching. The children will experience life cycle, growth, and development. The programme encourages caring and nurturing skills throughout. We were thrilled to have all ten eggs hatch. Ten healthy chicks certainly kept us busy and smiling!
Our topic in class this term is called ‘Supermarket’. This project has a knowledge and understanding of the world focus and teaches children about the different foods sold, how they react to being heated, cooled, mixed and changed using a range of processes. The children will be encouraged to express clear opinions and write their own food reviews. We will explore food sources; through ‘Seed to Plate’ and learn how to carry out a fair test. The topic discusses the range of materials and the properties used for packaging in shops and the issues surrounding waste and re-cycling!
The children joined in with the CAFOD National Assembly ‘Eyes of the World’ assembly on Earth Day, where awareness was raised on climate change and how the children can help to protect our planet. In class we have been busy ensuring we reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible. We heard ‘A prayer for our Earth’ by Pope Francis and we are continuing to use it during our class assemblies during this half term.
Seesaw will continue to be used for homework. Work will be sent each Friday. All homework is to be completed by the following Thursday.
If you need any support to log in to your child’s account please phone the school and your Seesaw sign in code will be provided to you.
In addition to Seesaw tasks below you will find resources to further support your child’s learning.
Your child will be working on their individual targets in class. These are the targets that were sent home following parent’s evening calls. If you have misplaced your child’s targets you can find a copy below. To support their learning please look through the following sheets. These are the next steps of learning through your child’s Mathematical Development and Language, Literacy and Communication Development. If you have any questions, or if you are unsure what target your child is working through please do not hesitate to ask by messaging either through Seesaw, or by phoning the school.

I know how challenging life can be through these uncertain times. I know the pressures of working from home with little ones running around is not easy. Choose your battles and remember to be kind to yourselves. If I can support you in any way please let me know.
