Hi everyone, we hope you had a lovely Easter Break and the Easter Bunny came. We have had some lovely weather so we hope you have been able to get out and spot signs of spring in your gardens or around your local area.
You will have received information about a new learning platform we are using called Seesaw. This gives you the opportunities to share your learning or anything you are doing at home. Mrs. Taylor and Miss. Prendergast can then reply back to you about anything that you share. The Home Learning we set on here will also be uploaded on the Seesaw app. We look forward to seeing what you have been up to.
As we start our new week, let’s start with the daily Joe Wicks session. Log on to Youtube to join him live at 9am.
Literacy – In school we use something called ‘Talk for Writing’ where the children act out and orally retell a story. They have brought out a free Home-school booklet. Unfortunately we can’t upload to our site but here is the link for you to have a look at: http://mailchi.mp/talk4writing/home-school-booklets
If you click on Reception unit, it is all about a cat called Mavis. There are lots of activities, so we will set you some each day to complete.

We hope you are all having fun, keeping busy with our activities.
If you have playdough/slime – have a go at this to get those fingers moving.
Using the sound ‘l’ for leg, what words can you come up with beginning with l? Write them in your books. You may even want to put these words into sentences.
Using you dice, roll and write the number it lands on. You could draw the dots at the side and form the number.
