Good Morning Owl and Fox Class,
We hope you enjoyed the work all about the weather and had a go at all of the creative activities and some of the investigations. We had a week of super weather again which was lovely and sunny, so I hope you all made the most of the sun too, and spent some time outside. Mrs Keat, Miss Norgate-Smith and I have enjoyed hearing from you via email about the things you have been doing and seeing all of your photographs. Well done!
I have now added Week 7, and the work is all linked to learning about mini-beasts. Once again there are some lovely investigations for you to complete. We would like you to write a list of mini-beasts; how many can you think of? Write a description of a mini-beast so that somebody else can try and guess what it is. We would love to see or hear about it. There are also some lovely craft activities for you to complete.
Well done to all the children who have used the read with phonics App, it is lovely to see how you are all doing and to watch your progress. Some of you have been working extremely hard on it and moved to phase 4 and 5 phonics which is quite tricky. Well done. If you have not got going on it yet, hopefully you can start this week.
There are also some extra activities at the end of the page which can be completed at any time.
All of the Early Years team are missing you all and hope that you stay safe and well.
Mrs Norgate-Smith, Mrs Keat and Mrs Baskerville

Your child should now have access to Purple Mash and have received a message from school which included a username and password. This is for an online learning platform with fun and exciting learning opportunities for your child to take part in.
Please could you log in using your username and password and have a go on mini mash. We have saved you all a tray for you to keep your work in.
It is good to see you have been exploring the activities. We would now like you to try the pin about mini-beasts. There are three activities we would like you to do. A life cycle of a butterfly, a decorate your own butterfly and a can you invent your own insect? Please practise first and then save one copy of an activity in your tray which is the best you can do. We look forward to seeing your final pieces of work from the pins in your trays.
If you cannot log in please call the school and we will endeavour to sort it out for you. If you have any questions about mini mash, please contact your child's class teacher in the first instance.
