What's happening today?

Join in with our daily prayer, and look at our visual timetable to see what jobs you have lined up for today.



Today in handwriting, we are continuing to practice writing the letters that belong to the 'Long Ladder' letter family. Today we will focus on writing the letter y. As an extra challenge see if you can write some words beginning with the letter y. Open the PowerPoint presentation below and then click on the letter y to watch the pencil show you how to write that letter. Just in case you can't get the PowerPoint to work on your device here is a short video on writing the 'Long Ladder' letters that may be useful.


You all have the link to the lessons related to the sound sets that your child is learning. Your child also needs to look at the spelling videos as part of their phonics too. These have been shared with you. Start from lesson 1 of these videos and do 1 a day. They are working retrospectively, so your child should be starting to get familiar with the sounds they are being asked to spell with. If you cannot find your link or you have forgotten which sounds your child is learning please send me a message on Dojo.


Visit the Oxford Owl website to access their free e-library, which has Read Write Inc Phonics books to match where your child is at in phonics, and book banded books to match your child's school reading book level. You all have the login details for our class account to this site, but if you can't remember it please send me a message on Dojo.


You can also use books from your child's own book shelf for reading together, and you can now also join Earl Shilton's digital library. Don't worry if you're not a member of Earl Shilton Library, you can now join online. Just follow the link:

We are pausing our Cinderella work this week to join with Miss Toole from Oak National Academy. We are going to be thinking about listening and responding to the story 'How Butterflies Came To Be.' There is also a spelling element to this lesson which focuses on adding the suffix 'est' to root words. Click on the red link below to access today's Literacy lesson.


In today's Maths lesson we will look at the second of the lessons focusing on subtraction crossing 10. Click on the links below to access the resources for this lesson.

5 Minute Mindfulness Meditation

Take a few moments today for this Mindfulness Meditation activity. We always start every afternoon with some meditation just to help us, relax, focus and turn off from the business of the day for a few minutes. Click on the red link below to access the meditation.


We're going to pause our History topic for a moment (we will return to it when I'm better) and do some Science for the next couple of weeks. We are going to pick up our Everyday Materials learning with Miss Harris from Oak National Academy. We ae going to start on Lesson 2 - What Are Objects Made From, as we have already looked at what materials are. (You can look at lesson 1 if you want to recap).  For today's lesson you will need your writing book, or some paper to write on, a pencil and a coloured pencil. You can access the lesson by clicking the red link below. I have also attached a Science activity that supports this lesson below.
