Summer Term

I hope you all had a lovely half term holiday and enjoyed some family time. As before half term, new content will be added to this page for our summer term learning. Each week there will be a grid of activities for you to choose from as well as a writing, phonics, reading, and maths activity. New spellings will be added weekly and I will also be uploading a phonics presentation with two focus sounds and two tricky words for you to practise each week.

 

Please continue to use Purple Mash and our ClassDojo page to show me your home learning and I will continue to check daily and respond to any queries.
