Good Morning everyone!


It's Monday today. It's our last week before half term. We are missing you all so much but we are SOOO proud of you all. We think you are all amazing. (Grown-up's too!)


Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day and Shrove Tuesday or pancake Day as it's often known, are all coming up in the next week or so and some of our learning this week will be based around them.


Mrs Jones has a another special assembly for you to watch today ...

This week we will be measuring. We begin with comparing height and length before moving on to the Days of the Week, measuring length and measuring time. 


Growing 6,7,8 - Week 3


After the lesson you are going to be building towers to compare the heights. You could use cubes, blocks, Lego or Duplo as long as what you use is regular in size to make it fair.


There are also some new activities on the additional maths activities page.

Watch the short film about kindness. Warning it does end rather abruptly!

Kindness by the Juicebox Jukebox


We are going to use our kind hands this week. 


Can you use your kind hands to ...


make someone you love a card or a gift like a picture?


help around the house e.g. make your bed or tidy away your toys?


give someone a cuddle?


sing a song or read a story to someone?


What else could you do with your kind hands?


Perhaps you could try to do one kind thing a day for a week.



Have a lovely day,

See you later for a bedtime story,

Mrs Rogers
