God is at the heart of our school


Here are the lessons for today's learning.


What's happening today?


Say our daily prayer and then look at our visual timetable to see what jobs you have lined up for today.


Today in handwriting, we are going to practice writing the letter as this is one that many people do incorrectly.  Today we will focus on writing the letter. 


As an extra challenge I would like you to write some words beginning with the letter p. Click on the link below to access the lesson video.


Handwriting for kids - Learn to Write Lowercase Letter p! - Bing video


Try to make sure you sit the round part of the letter p on the line and the stick needs to hang below the line.


Here are some words that have the letter p in them to try as your challenge:


pit  pip  pink  puppet  poppy



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:


Physical Activity


For our physical activity this week we are off to the Dough Disco with Mrs. Oliver and Miss White. Each day either Mrs. Oliver or Miss White will take you and your dough to the disco for a finger workout!


Today we're going to Dough Disco with Mrs Oliver! Click the link to access the video.



Today in Literacy we are starting a new journey with Trixie the Adventurous Fairy Penguin.  I have shared a booklet - you don't need to print it, it can just be accessed from the screen and we will be working on a few pages each day.


Today we will be listening to the story, answering some questions and thinking about some of the new vocabulary.


Below I have shared the booklet and the lesson powerpoint as files.  I have also added a link to the story narrated by the author, and the recorded Literacy lesson as normal.



Last lesson you compared objects within 50; today you are comparing numbers within 50.


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 link below to access the meditation.



This week we are going to continue our Everyday Materials learning with Miss Harris from Oak National Academy. We are moving on to lesson 4, investigating floating and sinking.


You will need a piece of paper and a pencil. If you would like to take part in the experiment you will need a coin or small metal object, a cotton ball or pad, stones, a pencil and a bowl of water. 

End of day story
