Welcome Donaldson to Week 3 of Home Learning


Well done to all parents and children. It was lovely to speak to you last week and check in on how everyone is going. It can be quite challenging home schooling at times. If you would like some phone support, please do email or tapestry me so I can arrange a time to call you.


This week I have put in 2 links to the learning. PowerPoints (what I usually use) and now PDF's for those who have devices that cannot access PowerPoint. You should still be able to access the links to specific websites via both. If you have any trouble accessing this please email me.


I have also added an easier maths icon for those children who are not yet at working within numbers to 20. If your child finds the current maths lesson too easy, please feel free to go onto the Year 1 page or alternatively you can email you and I can send some extra resources to you.


There are new topic lessons in the topic folder but you are more than welcome to go back and use any of the other lessons, including the family learning on the Home Learning page.


As you may have noticed I have started to upload special work on tapestry for the children to view and hopefully motivate each other to complete the topic work. So please do share this with them. It is lovely they can see each other through this.


Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any assistance.


Kind regards,

Ms Matthews
