We have had another great week in Class R.

We have described our own aliens using adjectives, made some fantastic collage aliens, made some amazing space musical sound effects and have done lots of counting and word building.

Next week we will be thinking about conservation and will be basing our work around the book ‘Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer’. We will also be thinking about Easter.

Don’t forget the Easter Bonnet parade on Wednesday. If your child could bring their bonnet into school, there will be a live parade!

Well done to our Learners of the Week – Mary and Flo. Mary has tried really hard this week and has shown progress with her storytelling and reading. Flo has tried really hard with her word building and is always ready to learn. Thank you Flo and Mary.😀👏



We have had another lovely week learning all about Space. This week we have been looking at the book Aliens Love Underpants. The children have done some great sorting aliens into different categories and we thought about a new ending for the story. They are also really improving with their skipping!

Next week we will continue with activities based around Aliens Love Underpants.

Our Learner of the Week this week is Spencer. He has shown great resilience and tried really hard with his cutting skills. He also thought of some great movements in P.E on the apparatus when we were focussing on wide and narrow shapes.



Well, what a great week back! It was lovely to see all of the children and they have settled really quickly back into school life.

We have had a lovely week, carrying on with our space topic. We have been balancing moon rocks and ordering them from heaviest to lightest, making paper aeroplanes and seeing which could fly the furthest and going into our Sensory room to experience our light infinity tunnel, light up carpet and space projections.

We also had our belated World Book Day and thank you so much – the children all looked wonderful and could all say who their characters were.

We look forward to another great week next week.

Hello Class R

I hope that you had a lovely weekend.

I hope that you enjoyed your learning last week. I will continue to put the daily learning on the blog this week just in case we have a hiccup with Google Classroom!

I have attached a weekly plan and some more activities in case you get bored! I will also attach a list of useful TV and website links that you may find helpful. have daily lessons from 9:00am – 12:00pm  (including links to CBeebies and BBC Bitsize).

I have signed you up to Oxford Owl E-book library to help with your reading at home. There are banded books on here that link with the coloured band that you read at school as well as some story telling videos. There are over 500 books, so it would be fantastic if you could use these to help you read everyday.                                                                                                                                    

Here are your log in details:

your purple book (to do all of your work in), pencil, card or cardboard boxes (to make a dice and a bed for a teddy), different size containers for water play, porridge (optional), plain flour and salt to make salt dough.

I look forward to seeing you all on Google Meet (hopefully)!
