Letter to Parents


Hello everybody.

Hope you are all okay and you have enjoyed your morning.

A big thank you to children who have sent me messages/photos. I love to see all the wonderful things you have been doing and to keep in touch.

I have attached a weekly overview that may support some of you when trying to teach your little ones at home. It is only a guideline so please don't feel like you have to complete everything on the list. It is also important that you follow the interests of your own child.

I have suggested to do ONE Reading, Writing, Maths and Topic activity each day. It would be helpful to dedicate a bit of time for daily Phonics too. Your child can practise their phase 2 (orange) and phase 3 (purple) sounds using the sound mats provided in your packs. Your child can do their work in the blank exercise books we provided, or use paper if they prefer.

I am aware that some of you might be feeling anxious and have your own work to do from home so please, please do not stress about completing the school work I send.

The most important thing is that your child feels safe, secure and settled with you at home so please make lots of time to play and have stories together too.

I will continue to update on here each day and aim to send you a weekly overview every Sunday.

Take care everyone xxx
