Week 5 - Monday 11th May
Welcome to another week of home education in Ash Class!
We hope you have all enjoyed the bank holiday weekend.
As you know, from this week onwards we are splitting the class into four groups for our Teams meetings. We will let you know tomorrow whether your session will be on Wednesdays or Fridays and the time of your meeting.
We think it's really important that time is given for you to chat together, and show us anything you would like to or talk about what you have been doing. We will also include either a short phonics or maths activity in each session so please have something to hand to write with and on.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible this week on Teams and please do email us through the office, firstname.lastname@example.org if we can help you or support you in any way.

Forest School - Potato peeler whittling
Whittling sticks is a great outdoor activity that can be almost meditative, and providing a potato peeler rather than a knife makes it much safer.
Your child can use the peeler to whittle the bark off a stick, and then use felt tip pens to decorate it.
Stick a feather to the end, and it becomes a magic wand, or wrap it in strips of white paper and add googly eyes to make a miniature mummy: perfect for Egyptian projects.
Whittling helps hand-eye coordination, and decorating the whittled sticks promotes creativity and imagination.
