Take care and remember to wash your hands.

Today we are going to do some counting. Have a look at the video showing that we can count anything we like.
I wonder what you will count. I’d love to see what you find to count around your house!!
Tuesday 12th May
We had a bit of fun in our house yesterday recreating a front cover of a book. Can you tell what the book and story is?
I would love to see you having a go!
Make sure you look on our twitter page over the next few days as some of the other teachers and their children are getting involved!
Monday 11th May
Hello everyone. I have posted a video reading We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. I hope you enjoy it. Maybe you could retell the story while your out on your walk today or use your toys and make up the story.
You could also have a go at making some props or some musical instruments, shakers and simple guitars using elastic bands to use to retell the story. And don’t forget to get your own teddy bears involved. Maybe you could have a picnic this week with them.
Have fun and speak soon
Friday 8th May
Happy VE Day and Bank Holiday Friday!!
Hope you have some nice things planned. We will be doing some baking here, making cupcakes and scones.
I have stumbled upon some lovely ideas to do so I’ll add the photos below. Something to try over the bank holiday weekend.
We would like the children in preschool to draw or paint a picture of themselves or a picture of the school to place inside a time capsule.
Please post through the school postbox on your daily walk or take a photograph and email me.
It would be fantastic to get some contributions from Preschool inside the capsule.
Wednesday 6th May
Happy National Nurses Day
Why not make a poster for your window to say thank you to the nurses and other key workers. Or maybe write a thank you with chalk on the pavement outside your house. I would love to see any photos - please send them to my email address
Take care and speak soon
Tuesday 5th May
Hello everyone I hope your Tuesday is going well. The sun is out again so let’s get active!!
Here’s a really fun warm up that we do with the children in class. Warming up our bodies before exercise, whatever that may be, walking cycling playing catch is very important. Enjoy your day.
Happy May 1st
We did indeed make it to the end of another week of home school. Can you believe that it’s May already?
Have a great weekend.

Wow it’s amazing how time goes so fast at times and so slow at others. The weather has turned a bit cooler and the rain has started to fall, which is good for our gardens and outside. -
Today is all about counting and singing. I have put a link up to a YouTube video. Have a go at singing this songs and practising counting.
Missing you all. I hope you all received the letters I posted.
Marvellous Monday 27th April

Welcome to the Summer Term 2020
Monday 20th April 2020
What beautiful weather again and what a fantastic way to start the Summer Term. I hope you all had a great Easter and celebrated with your families at home. How many chocolate eggs did you all eat?
This half term were are exploring the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Do you have the story at home?
I will put a link to a lovely video story below. It’s set to music and a lovely way to listen to the story.
This half term will need to continue to practise our name writing and recognising prints in the environment. Are the children able to recognise any advertising logos?
We also need to continue to count objects and enjoy counting everything, jumps, claps, steps, cars, toys.
Thursday 2nd April
I thought that I’d send some photos of John and what he’s been up to over the week. I’d love to see some of your photos.
Wednesday 1st April
Today I phoned around to see if everyone was ok. Those that I spoke to were keeping well and safe. Daisy was planning on making a cake and John has been busy making dough and counting. Tommy has been keeping himself occupied and safe too so that’s all great news. I will try and call in as often as I can as I’m really missing you all. I hope the rest of you heard the voice mails that I left for you.
At the Griffiths house today we left messages for the key workers and delivery drivers on the street using chalk. We have seen lots of people commenting on them and smiley which is always good.
I’ll just leave a few links to my favourite account and activities here.
Tuesday 31st March
Today I was at school looking after some of the key worker children. We had great fun making rainbows pictures and bunting to decorate the school entrance. If you are walking past please go and have a look at the lovely art work.
We also had a go at the skittles experiment. You place skittles on a plate and add warm water. The results are really impressive.
I shall be contacting you this week to check in and see how everyone is getting on. I’m excited to hear what you have been doing. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to help and support you.
Monday 30th March
I hope you had a nice weekend. Here in the Griffiths’ household we went for two lovely walks and cooked roast dinner.
I tried hard to complete a jigsaw too. I’m nearly finished.
The sign for today is orange. Are you having an orange for snack?
Im in school tomorrow so I will let you know what we get up to.
Take care, stay stay at home and stay safe. Miss you all so much

Hello everyone. We made it to Friday and the first week of homeschool life has been completed. I have missed seeing you and your smiley faces so much.
Today the sign of the day is happy. I am happy that it is Friday.
We have been busy today with school work and The Joe Wicks workout.
Has anyone made any rainbows for their windows? We have made some using some water colours. It’s good way to feel connected and a good treasure hunt when you are out on your daily walk. I’ve posted the link below.
Have a good weekend.
Catch up on Monday

Good afternoon ...
Well it’s been another glorious day! Thank goodness for the sunshine. Today’s sign of the day is Happy, and this weather does make me so happy.
