Hello, I hope you have all had a lovely half term. It was lovely to see you all on our live google classroom the last day of half term.  I hope you all had fun with our games and enjoyed seeing your friends.

I’m very excited to continue our vehicle ‘Animal Watch’ this term but we will now be thinking about animals that like to live in hot places, like the Safari!

What do you know about the Safari already?  Can you think of any animals that live there?

We have reassessed the phonics groupings and will be able to offer one group some live google classroom sessions 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday).  This is the majority of the class and at a very important stage of starting to read.

If you are in this group, you will be invited to join the session at 11am each day for a 30 – 45 minute phonics and reading sessions. Those who are not in this group will continue to be supported with virtual classroom links and direction to reading books. The information will be sent out by email as usual.

*Please note the first live phonic session this week is on Tuesday 23rd at 11am. Please login to the classroom like last week and follow the daily link to access the session.

RE- It is now the season of Lent. Lent is a time where we are preparing and waiting for Easter when Jesus died on the cross to save us all. We think of how we can be more like Jesus and follow in his footsteps.  Lent lasts for 40 days and 40 nights as this is how long Jesus was in the desert for rejecting all temptations.

Watch the video below about Jesus in the desert.

Write the number 40 in bubble writing and decorate it in various purple colours and textures.
