This week there will be two uploads before the 'half-term break'. We won't be uploading learning next week but check out our Thursday upload for lots of ideas of fun activities to keep everyone busy over the break.
If you would like to take part in our Electa Live Lessons and have not yet signed up or would like to know more, please call the school office to get signed up or ask any questions.
'My Changing World' is a brilliant resource that will help you to learn and talk about how you are feeling with all the changes that are happening at the moment. Remember that it's okay to be finding it tricky and it's okay to talk about it too!

Are you ready for the last part of the Kevin the Koala Who Could story? I wonder how it ends...
Kevin the Koala Who Could - Part 5
Slowly he unclung claw by claw. He felt springy, light and happy. All the animals asked him to play again. He replied "Yes I can!"
What a brilliant ending! Can you have a go at writing the ending of our story? Don't forget the 'un' prefix and the 'y' grapheme at the end of words like happy.
At the end of our story, we show that Kevin is speaking by using punctuation called speech marks. They look like this:
The first set of speech marks come before what your character is saying and the second set comes after what they have said. Can you have a go using them?

As lots of you have recieved clocks in your home packs, we are going to learn about time this week! If you don't have a clock at home, you can use https://www.visnos.com/demos/clock
Today we are going to be learning how to read and draw o'clock times on a clock. Remember that a clock has a longer hand called the minute hand and a shorter hand called the hour hand.
Whenever the minute hand is pointing at the number twelve, it is an o'clock time. You can look at the number that the hour hand is pointing at to find out which o'clock time it is. I can tell the time is 5 o'clock on the clock below because the minute hand is pointing to the 12 and the hour hand is pointing at the 5.
Can you have a go at these worksheets? Match the times to the different clocks and then draw the time on the clocks with no hands.
