Week Beginning 01.03.21
Welcome to the last week of home schooling! Please find a copy of the weekly timetable below. All resources for this week can be found under the 'Files' section in Teams, under week beginning '01.03.21'. The resources have been organised into days so hopefully they will be easy to find. As a reminder, online sessions this week are whole class at 9am and 10.50am. The 9am session will focus on the maths activity for the day and the 10.50am session will focus on the English.
This week there will be a science session on Monday at 2pm with Mrs Tamlin and a topic session on Wednesday at 2pm with Mrs Costar.
Thursday is 'World Book Day' and we have based our literacy lessons for the week around this. There is a very exciting 'Potato Challenge' set for Thursday afternoon. We would love to see your potato character creations so don't forget to send us a picture!
To make it easier to submit the children's work, we have created a daily folder in the 'Assignment' section in Teams. Any work children wish to share from that day should be uploaded there and we will be able to respond with individual feedback. Alternatively, you can continue to email email@example.com and we can respond to you via email.
Mrs Tamlin, Mrs Costar and Miss Evans
