Welcome back to the Summer term everyone, we hope you managed to enjoy some sunshine over the Easter weekend whether in your garden or on your daily exercise.

 

Below you will find a Topic menu for the week where you can choose at least 2 activities to complete. Maths tasks are now differentiated 3 ways. We have included a medal system which shows each task and a little outline of what each entails to help the children make their choice. We are only expecting the children to choose 1 Maths task a day but they are free to choose the level of difficulty. Tasks are labelled Bronze (the easier of the 3), Silver (majority can access) and Gold- the more challenging of them.

 

Please also find the Literacy task for today along with reading please (We have included a letter from Mrs Hitt about Oxford Reading Tree which tells you a bit about accessing free books) Please remember to read every day (with or without a grownup) and login to Mathletics.

There will also be a weekly well-being challenge from Mrs Hitt posted here and a blog from us through Seesaw so we can share with you some of the things we’ve been up to at home too.
