We will change the home reading books every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please do not worry if
you don’t get the opportunity to read every night, keep the book until your
child has read it to you, then sign the diary to say it has been read. However, reading is not just about reading the words, it is far more than that. Understanding what the children are reading about is essential. Ask your child questions about their book, e.g. what is...., what does that word mean?.... How do you know?.... What do you think will happen next?.... Can you think of a different ending for the story? It is far more important to really engage with a book, remember it is not a race to see who can get into the highest band first! We assess the children's reading on a number of criteria.
I hope you are all staying healthy How are you all getting on with your learning packs? I've put some more activities on this page for you. Don't forget to read! There are plenty of e-books to read online.
Have a look at some of the challenges I've sent you – I hope you can remember all those rules we learned.
If you can, ask your adult if you can join in with Joe Wicks PE – it's hard work but great fun – I've tried it! It is on every week day at 9 o'clock.
Hopefully we will all be back together soon. Look after yourselves. Miss you all!

Due to the current unprecedented circumstances our plans for this term have been cut short.
Here are some of the things
we have been learning about and still need to do:
This half term our
Can you go on a plant hunt? Identify the different kinds of plants that live in your garden. Why do they live there?
We have been looking at the differences between human and physical features in the landscape. Think about Runcorn - what is good about it and what is not so good? Can you suggest what could be done to improve it?
We can create algorithms but how do we sort a problem out when it goes wrong?
This term we will be learning about Islam. At Easter we will find out why this is a special time of year for Christians.
In art, we are going to be studying the work of Georgia O'Keefe. Look online to see her work. Can you draw a picture like she does?
We have already started to design our fruit salad but have not been able to make it. Perhaps you could do this at home!
Listen to different kinds of music; can you make an instrument?
We have learned lots in gymnastics; have a go at teaching your adults some of the positions. shapes and balances.
Our history lessons have been about changes. We have looked at life in the 1960s, ask your grandparents about their experiences.
Maybe you could look after a patch in your garden? Grow a plant?
P.E.: we will be doing PE on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning until Easter. Please make sure your child has their named PE kits in school for these days.

- The days children do P.E. on change every half term. This term we will be doing PE on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school (T-shirt, shorts and pumps/trainers) and that all items are clearly labelled with their name. We encourage children to practise getting dressed at home to help them get changed independently and quickly in school!
The children are allowed to bring in a water bottle to keep in class which they can access throughout the day. It is school policy however, that drinks must be water only. Please make sure your child's name is written clearly on their water bottle.
Would you please make sure that your child does not bring in toys from home as we have found that these are often the cause of upset, especially if they are lost or damaged.
Snack in 1-2T is slightly different from Reception. For 20p a day (£1 weekly), the children can buy fruit at morning playtime. Free fruit is still given to all children each afternoon.
I am sure that you will understand that it is very important that you tell me if someone different is to collect your child at the end of the day - and I do like to confirm their identity before releasing your child!
