Welcome to the Spring Term.
Hello, welcome to this term of home-learning. We will have an English, Phonics, Maths and one other subject daily for you to do on Seesaw at home. The other subjects will include Science, RE, PSHE, Forest schools, Spellings, DT and Art. In Term 3 we will be doing Geography and Term 4 History. Thank you for all your continued support with your child's education.

Remote Learning For Parents and Carers and Children, Too!
As we have never really been in a situation like this before, it is important to remember that we are all learning how to learn from home.
Before you dive head-first into your teacher’s activities, take a moment to read some top tips about learning from home.
FOR PARENTS AND CARERS:
Learning will not just happen because of these activities. Learning is curiosity about the world. Foster curiosity by asking questions and being genuinely interested in the answers. Ask ‘why?’ a lot! A love of learning is more important than whether a work sheet has been done.
Environments that foster learning are calm. No one learns well under pressure. If you or your children are finding the task tricky, take a break and come back to it. If they really cannot get their head around it, try it in another way. Ideally, these activities should be as practical as possible.
These activities will not take as long as they do at school, because there are less children and less time for the teacher to explain things. If you have finished for the day, go in the garden, play some imaginative games, create a den, construct some crafts, make some art! Share these with us!
