Term 4, Week 1, 22nd February

Welcome to Term 4! 

I hope you had a good Half Term week, I would love to hear about anything you got up to. You could write me a postcard, a picture, a letter, a video message on ClassDojo, or any other way you can think of!

I look forward to seeing what you've been getting up to via Class Dojo or email. How many Dojo points can you earn this week? Can you earn a creative point for showing me some artwork or anything creative or an excellent excercise point for keeping fit? 

Hopefully the warmer weather is on its way and it'll give oyu lots of opportunity to get out in the garden. Are you planting seeds this year? Have you any Spring flowers yet? Daffodils have arrived in my garden this weekend, can you spot any on your walks?

This is the last week for free access to Collins Connect Big Cat reading scheme. They are narrated, so if your child wants to read independently, just mute the microphone. You can select them using your child's current reading level and they even have activity sheets accompanying each book.
