Dear Year 1 and 2,
The Easter Holidays are coming to an end. I am sure, like me, you have lost track of the days! I hope you have had a lovely Easter Holiday and have managed to do lots of fun things even though you could not go out as much or see as many people. I am looking forward to hearing about the things that you have been getting up to.
I have been doing lots of tidying, painting my garden fences and my bedroom. As a family we have played every single board game we own and have played lots of garden cricket. I have now learnt to bowl! I have also been enjoying my allowed exercise each day and have been running lots through Sulham Woods admiring the beautiful bluebells like Mrs Sheppard has and cycling with Katherine in the countryside around my house. I have been reading lots of different things, including some of Katherine’s recommendations, and I hope that you have all been enjoying some books too.
Pebbles has been a busy tortoise. He loves exploring my house and playing Hide and Seek behind the lounge curtains. He is still enjoying his food - I am now growing lambs lettuce as I couldn’t buy it anywhere for him! Sadly, he isn’t very good friends with my cat Spike - Spike is very scared of him as he chases him! As I write to you now, he is enjoying the heat of his lamp in his box, having eaten a very big lunch of dandelion leaves.
Mrs Latimer, Mrs Watts, Miss Stewart, Mrs Sheppard and myself have been meeting a lot via our computers, we can see and talk to each other just like I expect a lot of you have been doing with your family. We have been planning things for you to do from next week when we should have been back at school but unfortunately we cannot be there together.
To access the plan and activities for each day and the week ahead, remember to use the link that has been emailed to you.
I have decided to give you one Maths and one English activity every day together with one other activity e.g. music, science, R.E. etc. In addition you will need to do your daily reading and a phonics activity. This means that you will continue to make super progress with your learning at home. If you have any problems with any of the work or you (or Mummy or Daddy) think that things could be done differently/better please do e-mail me. Similarly if there is an activity or some learning that you think would be good for the whole class to do, again please let me know and I will plan that in.
I cannot tell you how sad I am that we will not be together from Monday but we will keep in touch by our computers and I look forward to receiving some lovely photographs and email messages.
I miss you all and think of you so much. Remember to be kind and patient.
Love From Mrs Carney
We love you to read anything and everything. Reading feeds your mind! The following list is merely a guide for families to help with choosing books from school, your local library or to have at home.
