We hope you are all keeping safe and remembering to keep washing your hands at home.
Mrs Anstey and I have made you a little pack for home learning which you can use at home and we will be looking at Tapestry everyday to see what you have been up to. Please keep sending us photos and news on Tapestry.
In the Read, Write inc. briefcase on this page there is information for your grown-ups to help you at home. There is a super little girl called Sylvie who is showing you exactly how to say the letter sounds the way we teach you at school. We have put a sheet in your book bags to help you with this too. You could even post us a Tapestry video of you doing this at home!
We have put lots of sharing books in your book bags for you to enjoy at home too.
Looking forward to finding out what you are all busy doing!
Love Mrs Good
Hi Hedgehogs and families
Mrs Anstey and I have loved looking at Tapestry over the past week. You have all been so busy painting, baking, playing in the garden, riding bikes and working with your families.
Although we are missing everyone, we must stay safe at this time.
Over the next week, please keep posting what you have been up to on Tapestry.
Below are five Tapestry Tasks we would like you to try over the next week!
TAPESTRY TASKS FOR WEEK 2
1- Make a sandwich with your favourite filling in. Use a knife carefully to cut the bread up into triangle shapes. Use these to have a teddy bears picnic, but don't let your teddy eat them all!
2- Colour in a picture really carefully without going over the edges. Try and use the correct colour for each part of the picture. For example - leaves on the trees must be green not purple etc.
3- Go on a number hunt around your house and see how many you can see! Which numbers can you see? Which room has most numbers in?
4- Play a game of hide and seek. If it is raining - hide a toy in the house for each other to find !
5- Have a play bath. Fill your bath up with bubbly water and take in some plastic bowls, cups and bottles from your kitchen cupboards. Get in the bath and pretend you are in a cafe making food for the customers!
PLEASE REMEMBER TO WATCH SYLVIE AND LOOK AT YOUR LETTER SOUND SHEET EVERYDAY TOO!
EASTER CHALLENGE FOR HEDGEHOGS
Over the Easter holidays Hedgehogs, please can you learn a new song or nursery rhyme and ask your grown-up to record you singing this. Please could the grown-ups then post this on Tapestry? We are really looking forward to some superb performances as we know what wonderful singers you are!
Good morning Hedgehogs!
We hope you have had a lovely Easter holidays with your family and that the Easter bunny still managed to find you! We are looking everyday at Tapestry to see who completed the Easter holiday challenge and became a singing Hedgehog!
We have set you a new set of Tapestry challenges to keep everyone happy and busy together at home.
It is so wonderful to see what you are up to when you post on Tapestry and Mrs Anstey and I really look forward to checking into see what you have been making and playing whilst you are not with us.
