Welcome to Summer Term 6
We hope you have all had a lovely break over half term and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine. For those who are working at home, we will continue to add the weekly/daily plans in the same format as last term. We would love to receive a brief, weekly email from you with one or two photos to add to the class page if you wish.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

18th - 22nd May Competition!
And the winners are:
A really BIG WELL DONE to everyone who has entered the competition. I hear that you have all had lots of fun creating a seagull-proof lunch for Mr Grinling. I have certainly enjoyed looking at photographs, videos and written explanations. I have loved the way that everybody has had such different and creative ideas. This gave me a real dilemma about choosing a winner. I could think of a reason why each entry should win.
I finally decided that every entry is worth a GOLDEN BUTTON!
Have a look at the photos below and I'm sure you will agree.
I hope you all have a little rest over half term and enjoy the lovely sunshine that the weather forecast is promising.
Build a Lighthouse Competition!
I would also like to say a great big well done to Yasmin for making a really fantastic lighthouse. You will also receive 5 buttons for your hard work!
Another great big well done to Louie for your super duper lighthouse. You will also receive 5 buttons for your hard work!
Well done as well to Harley for a great lighthouse with Mr Grinling working at the top. You will also receive 5 buttons for your hard work!
Benji has also made an amazing lighthouse. You will also receive 5 buttons for your hard work!
You all look like you had great fun making them!

The children should all have received their Bug Club logins and I have allocated suitable books and resources. There are also some activities to support this week's phonics (see weekly learning plan).
We build regular real PE lessons into our curriculum. The children find them inclusive, fun and challenging! I hope they will enjoy this opportunity to keep working on their agility, balance and coordination at home:
real PE at home – online learning resources
real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.
It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from this week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.
There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months. Here are the details to access real PE at home:

General routines and information
Please ensure book bags are brought to school every day. These should contain current reading books and a reading diary.It is important that you hear your child read regularly and comment or sign their reading diaries.
The children will also need a water bottle and outdoor shoes in school each day.
We would encourage P.E. kits to be brought into school on a Monday with all items clearly named, and taken home to be washed on a Friday.
Please take the time to review our uniform guidance on the parent.
