I hope you’ve had enjoyed the sunshine this week with your family and done little bits of work here and there.
I think we need to give our mams, dads and everyone who’s looked after us this week a huge round of applause 👏🏼They have done an amazing job!
Only one more week left and then it’s the Easter break 🐣
Earlier this week some parents were asking for reading books / resources for their children… sorry it’s taken so long but I’ve been looking for good sites with age appropriate books on as well as finding ideas for what you could do with the children with your own books that may be too advanced for them at the moment. I will put the list below.
🦧🦍🦓🐅🐆🐠As a Friday treat why not have a trip to the zoo? Let’s all go on a class visit to Chester Zoo – I have sent attached details of the virtual zoo visit starting at 10am. – head over to their Facebook page to get the link 🐫🦒🦘🦛🐆🐅
Have a wonderful weekend and I’d you need anything you know where I am, keep the photos and emails coming keeping me updated with the fun things your doing, and keep checking out the YouTube channel!
See you soon,
Some great site with reading books online for children to read with an adult:
Reading ideas for reception / year 1 / year 2 children:
Activity 1- get a book (story or reading book) pick a word and have a race as to who can find it first on that page.
Activity 2- find a word in the book and see how many words you can make rhyme with it, model writing them down or if your child is able let them write them.
Activity 3- play I spy with the pictures in the book use the soft sound not the letter. I spy with my little eye something beginning with S ‘ssss’.
Watch jolly phonics on you tube phase 2 and 3 sounds to help you with pronouncing it if unsure.
Activity 4- write some key phrases from the story on paper and cut them into strips. Can your child read and order the events. (Or photocopy pages from the book and order them)
Activity 5- pick your favourite character from the story if you could ask them any question what would you ask them? What do you think they would say?
Activity 6- Tell a story together my turn, your turn.
You-Once upon a time there was
You- He lived in
You-One day he decided to
Activity 7- read a story book to your child and get them to follow the text as your reading with their index finger.
Activity 8-tricky word (words children should know by sight as they cannot be sounded out phonetically) snap. Write down two sets of tricky words on scrap paper and divide them into two piles. Play snap.
Phase 2 tricky words-I,no,go,to,the
Phase 3 tricky words-he,she,we,me,be,was,you,they,are,all,my,her
Activity 9- read a simple story or traditional tale. Ask your child to draw and label a picture to explain what happens at the beginning then middle and end and put them in order.
Activity 10- pick a word or picture from the book and see how many describing words you can think of for example a cloud- fluffy, white, soft, large, like Cotten balls, as big as a snowman etc
Activity 11- hide the book from your child’s sight and describe the setting/scene to your child and get them to draw it. When they are finished compare the setting to your child’s drawing discuss how they are different. Can they describe it to you and you can draw it.
Before reading a new book you can also get your child to predict what will happen by looking at the title and front cover.
Whilst reading a book you can ask the children questions, for example ‘what do you think is going to happen next?’, or ‘how do you think she is feeling now?’
The children in class 1 and 2 have done us so proud – we sent off some poems earlier this year into a writing competition of 15,000 entries and guess what…. lots of our wonderful poets have been chosen to be published in a book! Well done children! 🙂
Class 1 have enjoyed taking part I world book day today. We had a marathon reading extravaganza with a book an hour! We love reading…… and dressing up as our favourite book characters! 🙂
Food and Drink
In Breakfast Club, we have a whole range of food such as; Pancakes, toast, variety of cereals, cereal bars, biscuits, crumpets, brioche buns and fresh fruit.
On top of that we have chocolate spread (which is our favourite)! We also have cheese, ham, cocktail sausages and a variety of spreads. To drink we can choose from fresh orange and apple juice and water.
After our breakfast, we get to play with a variety of games: puzzles, lego and other activities. We also have leaders who monitor the activities each day.
Overall we love Breakfast Club and our adults; Mrs Shaw, Mrs Gallacher and Mrs Hill, who make it really good fun for all ages.

Well done to Sophie in class 1 for taking part in her first cheerleading dance competition. The routine was amazing and she danced with fabulous rhythm in her team! Keep it up Sophie 🙂
Today we all came to school to wearing Green in order to raise money for the NSPCC. We have been taking part in workshops giving children the confidence to speak out if they are worried, either to a trusted adult or Childline.
We had a ‘Design an emoji competition’ with the help of our Speak out Stay safe mascot, Buddy the speech bubble, and the winners from each class each received a green prize. The best part of the day was day was covering Mr Graham in green slime – all for a good cause though! 🙂
Thank you to everyone who kindly donated, we raised a total of £85.oo for this amazing charity.
