Happy Home Learning
Can you discuss holidays. Where have you been? Where would you like to go? How would you get there? Talk to other family members too, we are sure they will want to book one soon!
Foundation 2 Homework
Literacy – This week we have been looking at holidays. We have made our own holiday brochures and even wrote our own postcards. We have also been busy booking holidays in our travel agents role play area! For your homework we would like you to write a sentence telling us about your favourite holiday or trip to the seaside. You might also want to draw a picture to show us what it looked like!
Maths – In maths we have been practising adding 2 amounts, using a number line to count on and find the answer. Using the number line you made in your homework book can you count on and find the answer to these addition sums?

Summer Weather
Summer has arrived and we would like to stress the importance of protecting your child from the beautiful sunshine that we are currently enjoying. Please make sure that a sun hat is provided to wear during outdoor activities and that you apply sun cream before arriving at school. Your child may bring cream to school but must apply it themselves as members of staff are not permitted to do this. Also, we encourage the children to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration so please make sure that they have a water bottle in school. Thank you
Outdoor PE
Please make sure that your child has the appropriate footwear for outdoor sport particularly for Year 2 children who are working on their PE skills with RUFC on Thursdays.
