We have now reached the end of Term 5. What a crazy term it has been and one that I know, has not been the easiest for so many of you. I'd like to start by saying a big thank you for emailing in to share what your children have been up to. It has been so lovely to see and hear about their activities. I appreciate it is another thing to think about during this 'home learning' period but it does help us all to feel connected. Thank you again for allowing your children to participate in our Zoom meeting. I know this wasn't feasible for everyone but hopefully the videos we have uploaded have helped your children to feel more connected to us and the school.
As we go forward to Term 6, I know many of you have got some difficult decisions to make. Whatever decision you come to, we know this won't have been easy but please know we are still here to support you both in and out of school.
As a school, we have shared how we plan to re-open as safely as we possibly can for everyone involved; following the guidance from the government and KCC. I know it is a really uncertain time for everyone, as we enter further unprecedented times but please know, that the well-being and safety of everyone is at the heart of everything we are doing.
Over the next two weeks, please take some time to relax, have fun and look after yourselves. Take a break from the home learning way of life and try to treat it like a normal half term (as safely as you possibly can!) If you would like to continue with some form of structure, we are a week behind with our White Rose Maths, so you could do: Summer Term - Week 5 (w/c 18th May) all about Superworm.
Keep smiling and hopefully we will have some sunshine to enjoy!
You didn't think we'd leave you with nothing to do did you?
Here is a home learning passport which you can do at home. Can you complete all 20? You may have completed some already!
We don't need photo evidence of you doing every single one, we are going to trust you! You may like to send some pictures in to brighten our day though.
I cannot believe we are in Term 5 already, what a crazy couple of weeks we have had! As we return to home learning, please know that whatever you manage to achieve in the day is brilliant.
I am contactable via the class email address so please email if you need any help/support. I have loved seeing what you have been up to so thank you for taking the time to email pictures into me. I know it is another think about so thank you so much.
Our curriculum question this term is: How do things move?
We will be thinking about transport, humans and animals as we explore movement.
Below is the curriculum map (if you can't read it very well, I will upload a document of it too.)
Keep smiling Pandas, you are all amazing!
