Hi Murphys and Potters,

We hope that you have had a fantastic half term break and have managed to enjoy the beautiful weather. Welcome back to another week of home learning.

This week we will be-

  • measuring to the nearest centimetre.
  • doing some science investigations using our 5 senses.
  • reading a new story called ‘The Night Pirates’ and writing our own version of the story.
  • Practising the skills we have learned in our wider curriculum lessons in our retrieval practice.
  • Practising our phonics, we are working on the set 3 sounds.

If you don’t have access to a printer or would rather not print out so many pages, please feel free to adapt the work and write directly into your home learning notebooks. If you have finished the home learning workbook, feel free to use any notebook you have available (lined if possible). Have a great week.
