Welcome back from your Easter Holiday. I hope you have all kept busy and safe. As social distancing continues, please remind children at home of our school rules: to be ready, respectful and safe. I am missing everybody very much and I will aim to contact everybody at some point this week from school phones.

You could colour this in a different colour. Today's challenge: Choose a list of common exception words to write. Focusing on how the word is spelt and writing it with neat handwriting. If you do not have a printer, write the words on lined paper for your children. Can you write on the line?
Today have a go at completing the Fluent in 15 of the day. Once again, if you do not have a printer you can write the questions down on paper for your child to complete. Using the red book that was sent home is a good idea to record your answers. Todays challenge: Can you draw and label 2D shapes, including a circle, triangle, square, rectangle, hexagon, pentagon and octagon? Write the shapes name and how many sides it has. I am really enjoying the work that everyone is sending to my email. Keep it up! In addition, Mr Keddie has now set every Year 1 child up with a Numbots username and password. It is a super fun maths game with different levels to complete. Numbots is used in every year group, so why not try it now? Email me for your personal username and password to get started. Numbots : https://play.numbots.com/#/account/search-school
Good Morning! Todays challenge is to complete Tuesday's Fluent in 15! If you do not have a printer, then you could write the questions for your children on paper to be completed. Remember Fluent in 15 (Mental Mathematics) should be completed in 15 minutes. Reading challenge: Get your child to read their phonics book, and ask these questions to check their understanding. What happened in the story? Who is the main character? Can you tell me how the story ended? Send your reading photos to Miss Berry's email so I can share your wonderful reading challenges. As an extension, can you make a story map of the book?
During time off school children will be more likely to use technology and go online. This is why it is important to check your child's device and talk to your child/children about online safety. The NSPCC website offers good advice on how to approach the conversation of online safety and gives good advice on what you can do as parents/careers to keep your child safe online. Please make sure all devices children use are checked to see what they are accessing, as well as having parent locks where available. Remember to spend some time away from the screen by going outside or keeping busy. Have a look at some good ideas of non-screen based activities. NSPCC: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/talking-child-online-safety/ .
