This thing (COVID-19) that we are all part of, it is living history. It will be talked about for generations to come. Schools are closed, sports are cancelled, people are quarantined on a global level. So, we would like you to keep a journal/diary of this living history event (think Samuel Pepys, without the smelly cheese!) in your diary, record day to day events – photos, drawings, writing, newspaper clippings, activities. Interview people: parents, grandparents (over the phone!) email teachers. You will have created a primary source of your own history to share with generations to come.

Please continue to stay safe AT HOME and remember to wash your hands with warm water and soap!

Please see below a list of ‘live lessons’ that you may want to do with your children…

and if you haven't already, paint or draw a rainbow and display it in your window, to remind us all that there is a rainbow of hope after every storm.

All children require a P.E. kit to join in; this consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps/trainers.

 

 

Children will be using A.P.E within many different lessons of the curriculum. If you would like to support your children with this at home. Please click the following link A.P.E Sheet for further information.

 

Reading is a key skill that we want all children to develop. Please read with your children regularly and record this in their planner. It is important that fluent readers have the chance to read and talk about books with an adult. Please ask questions that check whether your child understands what they have read.
