WB 1st June

Welcome back, we hope you had a lovely half term.

This week we will be listening to the story Only One You by Linda Kranz and making our own books about ourselves. We will also be making and exploring bubbles as part of helping those children back in school to understand the concept of their new ‘bubbles’ in school.


We are continuing with our daily handwriting and this week the letters we are practicing are v, w, x, y and z. The practice sheets for these can be found at the bottom of this page: 
https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/read-write-inc-phonics-guide/  

 If you haven’t already done so, your child may like to join in with the Virtual Big Sing. For more details on how to log in to take part please follow this link: https://www.drake.norfolk.sch.uk/big-sing-introduction/

Below is our timetable of suggested activities for this week. We’ll be posting these each day on Tapestry and you might like to upload how you get on with the activities.

 

Thank you for your continued support and stay safe.
