** SPECIAL WORK PHOTOS ADDED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE**
Please keep the photos coming - I love seeing them, they are all amazing!!! :) 
 
WE'VE MADE IT!
 
I think a huge well done is well and truly deserved for you all, (parents & children!) Nobody could ever have guessed how this year was going to turn out but you have all adapted so well and it has been delightful to see you all back at school at some point with big smiles still on your faces! I am sure next year will be a normal one without such strange disruptions!
 
Below is the final home learning timetable!!! Tuesday is an off-timetable day as we are recognising Bastille Day so do have fun with this. 
 
I wish you all a very relaxed and happy summer holidays! Hopefully you will be able to get away somewhere and refresh yourselves! I look forward to seeing you all back in September :)
 
Miss Markham

Week 6 Already!
 
I've never known the final term of school to fly by so quickly!!! Obviously my highlight of last week was getting to see the Year 2s returning to school. I absolutely loved getting to see you, talk to you (as much I could!) and play with some of you! I'm really looking forward to this Tuesday when I will come out to see you again and hopefully a couple more missing faces might return!
Below you will find this week's home learning - the pine class inbox was looking a little less full last week so please do keep sending in your work  - I really love seeing it :) 
A new worship has been added too. This week is 'The Exodus', joined by Reverend Sue's very sleepy dog! 
Keep an eye out for new Mr Penguin chapters - they're being added gradually throughout the week.
Have another brilliant week everyone!
 
Miss Markham

EXTRA BITS...
In Pine class, we start the day with morning activities of free writing or Maths.
We use http://www.pobble365.com as our stimulus for writing.
 
Maths
This term, Year 1 are learning about shapes and fractions whereas Year 2 are learning about fractions.
 
Have a look on here for some fun games to play:
 
Phonics/SPAG
Year 1 have a 20 minute phonics session - most children are working within Phase 5c, looking at alternative pronunciations and spellings.
 
Year 2 have their SPAG lesson. https://www.spellingplay.co.uk and Phase 6 in https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk will help with this.
 
English (Writing)
This term, we are writing our own quest stories - children may want to write a new one whilst they are at home! We used the story of Lost and Found to help us.
 
We were also looking at recount writing and using our trip to the Haynes Motor Museum as our stimulus for this.
 
Good spelling and handwriting are essential!
Handwriting must be neat and tidy with correct letter formation and clear spacing between words. Those joining, should ensure that each letter is clear to see.
 
Reading
It is absolutely essential that all children read every day. This can be a mixture of you reading to them and them reading to you, in turn.
Read lots and lots of different books (fiction and non-fiction), comics, food packaging - anything!
 
Afternoons
Afternoons in Pine class are full of different fun and exciting things!
This term we have been learning about coding in computing. There is a free App that you can download for this: https://www.scratchjr.org/
 
In Science this term, we are learning about materials and their various properties. This included investigations with slime: 
 
Investigations with floating and sinking - you can make boats out of various materials to test this (paper, card, tin foil, cellophane, wood - lollipop sticks, plastic - cut up bottles).
