Home Learning 2021

Staff have been reviewing the huge range of online resources currently available to assist you with home learning. You will find a selection of our recommended ones in the 'Websites' section of the class page.

Links to websites relevant to weekly planning will be available on each weekly learning sheet in order that they can be easily accessed.

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'. 

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.

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!  

Have you done any baking this week? What is your favourite thing to bake?
