Responsible Internet Use and Esafety
As children may now be accessing the Internet and online activities more frequently, please take the opportunity to share the 'acceptable use' rules we follow in school. These can be found below. Please read and discuss them with your children and explain what they should do if they come across something that makes them feel sad or angry. The children have taken part in Internet Safety Day. Parental guidance, documents and links are available on the website under 'Esafety'.

Good morning Moss Class, here we are in our final week of learning at home! We are so excited to welcome you all back to school next week and we have lots of wonderful things planned for us to learn and experience together.
This week we are celebrating world book day in our assembly by sharing our favourite stories. You will find your world book day token at the top of this page.
Have you been out and about in the beautiful sunshine this week? We’ve been out hunting for signs of spring. Below is a photo of Leo and his Daddy pointing out the spring signs in our local area.

Good Morning Moss Class, I hope you are all safe and well after a restful half term.
I have spent lots of time outside, trying (unsuccessfully) to avoid the rain! Did you get caught in a shower this week? I've enjoyed some baking at home, and made a Walnut Cake with some members of our family on FaceTime. It was lots of fun, but my baking skills still need refining!
Did you have a go at any of the half term challenges from our activity booklet?
I'm looking forward to seeing some of your faces online this week. Take a look at our home learning suggestions below to find out what we will be talking doing in our online sessions.
Good Morning Moss Class!!!!!
It is the final week of this half term and I am so proud of each and every one of you! I loved seeing all of your faces at our online assembly last week, and my heart was filled with pride when each of you shared something that you were proud of! Thank you for working so hard last week, and every week!
This week is our final week of traditional tales, and the story we are going to finish with is one I know you all know reasonably well: The Three Little Pigs. Don't forget to keep practising whatever it is that you have decided helps to keep you calm; I have been reading, and colouring this weekend to help calm my mind.
At the Bartlett house, we have built a castle and found lots of books on our book shelf with castles in too. Leo's favourite was this book, because he could step inside the castle and actually be the giant!
Wishing you all a wonderful week, I can't wait to catch up with you on Wednesday!
Safer Internet Day 2021
This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day explores reliability online. The campaign focuses on knowing what to trust online and supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world. The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, and can help us see the world from different points of view. But how do we separate fact from fiction, the genuine from the misleading? How do we decide what to believe online, and what’s the impact of dealing with fake content and experiences online? Join us this Safer Internet Day in helping to create an internet we can trust.
Explore our ESafety page for more information.
What a wonderful week full of news about how fantastically you are all doing at home. I have loved hearing from your proud parents about all of the ways you have been showing resilience and ambition in your learning - these characteristics make me very proud too!
This week we are going to extend our learning about Jack and the Beanstalk, as so many of you have shared how much you are enjoying this traditional tale. You may not be surprised to hear, my beanstalk has not made it to the end of the week, so I'm determined to build a better, more substantial one to go with my castle this week. I have been hearing about your brilliant beanstalks though, and the photos that I have seen have been very impressive!
This week is Children's Mental Health week and National Story-Telling week. You'll find additional resources for these events in our Home Learning Enrichment star on our main class page, should you wish to take part.
I'm really looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday at 1.15pm to share our learning so far. I will be sure to bring one of our favourite class stories to share too! Please join with cameras on where possible and microphones muted, other hints for optimising your use of Google Meet are attached below.
Week Beginning 25 January 2021
Good morning Moss Class! I hope this snowy, Monday morning finds you well and eager to explore the world around you! Mrs Taylor and I are really missing you all, but we are so proud of the resilience that you have shown! I have spoken to lots of your parents this last week and they have shared how hard you are working - keep trying your very best!
I have had great fun playing in the snow this weekend with Leo, he was especially interested in leaving prints in the snow. We started with footprints, and then handprints, we noticed animal paw prints in the woodland behind our house, and once it was time to come inside and warm up we decided to make our own prints in play dough. Our favourite was using Leo's toy animals to leave tracks through the 'snow'! I hope you've had lots of fun playing and exploring in the snow this weekend too!
This week we will focussing our learning on the traditional tale 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. I've been saving up my recycling to see if I can make my own Beanstalk this week... I'll post a photo of the outcome next week!
I'm looking forward to speaking to more of you this week. Don't forget we are so proud of you all!
This week I have been exploring more of our local countryside! I had lots of fun splashing in my wellies and driving Leo’s trucks through the Ford. We collected stones in his dumper truck and order them by size once we got to the other side. Mrs Taylor celebrated her birthday this week, instead of a cake she enjoyed cookie dough and ice cream! Looking at Mrs Taylor’s photos made me suddenly very hungry!
This week we will be learning about the Three Billy Goats Gruff traditional tale, I have added some learning suggestions below. Please try to access one phonics and one maths lesson each day. If you need new reading books from school, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be available to collect on a Friday 10am - 11am. You will see an extra star this week called the 'Home Learning Enrichment 2021' star. This contains optional extra activities that you might like to have a look at if you have time.
Week Beginning 11 January 2021
Good morning, Moss Class! This half term we will be exploring 'Traditional Tales', beginning with 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. As well as the suggestions enclosed on our weekly learning sheet, below, please continue to read your school reading books every day, and also practise your phonics sounds using the flashcards enclosed in your Home Learning pack. Practising your number skills daily using Numbots will also be incredibly beneficial!
This weekend I have been baking with my family, we started with a simple Banana Bread recipe and it smelt sooooooo good in the oven. I was hoping to take a photo of it as we pulled it out of the oven, but Leo was quite impatient!
