Happy Home Learning
Our nursery rhyme this week is ‘5 little fishes swimming in the sea’. Please practise singing this with your child.

FS2 Homework
Literacy – This week in literacy we have been learning about 'Finding Nemo'. We have been talking about describing words with the children. Can you help your child to write a description of one of the characters from the story? Think about writing down all the sounds that you can hear in the words.
Please recap on tricky words, my, I, to, he, she, me, be, go, the, no, was, we and they. Can you do a tricky word hunt around your house?
Numeracy – In numeracy this week we have been working with teen numbers. Can the children identify teen numbers around them? Practise writing teen numbers in your homework book.

Year 1 Homework
Literacy – Research some facts about Islam. What is their holy book called? How many times do Islam’s pray a day? What is a mosque?
Maths – Can you think of some two digit numbers and add them together? (e.g. 43 + 22 = 65). Write them in your homework book.

Summer Weather Precautions
The forecast for the next few days is very good and we look forward to some lovely warm sunshine. If your child suffers from any allergies (e.g. hay fever, prickly heat rash) could you please make sure that you administer the medicine before they come to school? Also, sun hats should be provided and your child may bring sun cream for their own use but must apply it themselves.

Community Fundraising Links
We are thrilled to inform you that we have received a donation of £250 from Bramley Parish Council which will now enable us to complete the final stages of our outdoor project in the Foundation Unit.
