HOMELEARNING FEBRUARY 2021
Hello all! We hope you are well and had a wonderful week. We will be continuing our home learning schedule over the next few weeks.
As with last term, we will upload a weekly plan, outlining the following daily tasks:
- Phonics video
- Literacy activity (Pop's challenge)
- Puzzle activity (Puzzle's challenge)
- Creative activities (a bank of activities for you to choose from throughout the week)
- A well-being activity
- Guided handwriting video
- Shared reading videos
Please remember, routine is important.
In order to help keep this going whilst learning from home, below is a suggested timetable, similar to the timings we normally follow in school.
Feel free to use this to help plan your day (if it helps) but there is no pressure to follow these timings. Your child may need more breaks or be better starting work earlier/finishing earlier.
I understand that many of you will also have to schedule home learning around your own jobs and how tricky this must be, so again, if you don’t manage to complete all of the activities every day, please don’t worry.
Please keep me updated!
In order for us to keep track of the children's learning, as well as celebrating their achievements, please send photo's of the children's work or photo's of what they have been up to to me at
We will continue our Friday whole class Zoom calls - please join when you can!

Dear FD families,
Wow! We have already completed our first term of school. How exciting! Thank you for your continued support this term. We feel so lucky to have such a brilliant parent team! Please enjoy a selection of photos below, showing all of the fun Christmas activities the children have been enjoying over the past few weeks. (Including many shots of our Christmas party day!)
I am so proud of the children's progress this term. I can't wait to see how high they fly next year!
Stay safe! See you in 2021.

Pop loves going on adventures and likes us to help him write about them.
He helps us to use our phonics to sound out words in his pictures.
We practised sounding out and writing the word Pop.

Where is Pop? Can you write the word?

We have completed phase 2 phonics!! Well done FD.
Please keep practising the sounds below at home. We should be able to write and say the sounds.
After Christmas, we will move on to phase 3 phonics. This includes lots and lots of digraphs - how exciting!
Bear Word Certificates
This week, I have introduced bear word certificates. Children will receive these certificates when they can read all of the words on their current bear word sheet and are move on to the next. Each child will move onto their next bear words at their own pace and will be celebrated.
WHAT ARE WE LEARNING IN MATHS?
Puzzle's favourite number this week is the number 8!
Can you find 8 on a numberline?
How many ways can you make the number 8?
What is a shape with 8 sides called?
This week, we learnt all about Diwali. We loved learning about and acting out the story of Rama and Sita, as well as making our very own Rangoli patterns, lanterns and Diva lamps.
We hope you enjoyed our creations!
