I hope you've all had a great half term break and are raring to go for the final half term of this school year!
Coming back to school in a bubble!
This book (below) should help you to explain what it is going to be like when your child comes back to school. It is a child friendly way to discuss the new routine and expectations. I will also be posting videos and pictures over the next couple of weeks of how the classroom looks now and the staff who will be in your child's bubble.
KS1 Ask a grown up to help you find some headlines from Good News stories this week. For example, with your grown-up, you might like to choose a story from CBBC Newsround https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround?collection=bbc-childrens
Talk about the story with your family. Say why you think it is good news. You could draw a picture and write sentences to say what happened and who did a good thing.
Take time to reflect on the story. Think about people’s beliefs – do you think Christian or other faith believers would agree that this was good news? Why?
This half term we will continue to use the White Rose Maths home learning. As some schools went back last week we are a week behind on the scheme.
Here are the worksheets and answers to this week's work for Maths. Remember to continue using White Rose to access the video resources and Bitesize for extra input.

If your child would like some additional reading for this week related to seasons, please see the PDF below.
Year Two Reading, Writing and Grammar
How much do you know about your family history? Well this week is a great opportunity to find out. We have spent a lot more time with our families, thinking about/ talking to our extended family over the past few months which gives us a great opportunity to find out about our family history. You may have spoken about/ remembered relatives over the VE celebrations or looked through old family photos while learning from home. Let’s try and find out about our families and create our own family trees.
I have attached a PowerPoint about family trees with an example of the Queen’s family included. I have included a templates that you may want to use for your family tree, or you can create your own. You can draw pictures to illustrate your family members, include photos, and decorate it however you wish. You may find out you have some exciting stories about someone in your family, and want to write them down to send in for us to all learn about your family.
This half term we will be exploring the seasons and how they change. There are lots of videos and activities that can be found on the espresso site. If you need a reminder of the log in please e-mail in.
Watch the following clip from BBC bitesize.
Using the sheet below sort the objects into the correct seasons. Then answer the question - Which season is your favourite and why?
This weeks Rainbow Challenge is all about recognising 'Rainbow Moments'. You can use the sheet to write your special rainbow moments and share them by sending them in to the class e-mail if you wish.
I'd like to say a BIG happy birthday to Amelie, Max, Edward and Hattie, who all turned 6 over our half term break! I hope you all had lots of fun celebrating with your families.🎂🎂🎂🎂
