Hello everyone,

I hope you are all managing to enjoy the sunshine and keeping safe.

In order to continue our learning please access the Jolly Phonics songs and actions that will be uploaded on this site.

Also, every day I will suggest a little fun task to keep you busy. Please feel free to send me photos and messages on our new class Dojo. If you haven't already signed up, please do. It will enable us to all keep in touch and you can share your pictures and comments regarding the daily tasks, any other fun stuff that youve been up to or anything that you'd like to share with me. I will send the task on the class Dojo and on this webpage for those that haven't yet signed up Dojo.

Please keep reading if you have a reading book, practise the days of the week and recite the alphabet as and when you can. 

I am looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Stay safe and take care.

Mrs Jaques
