Hi everyone!

Again, we hope that everyone is safe and well! Half term seems a long time ago, plus I don't know about you but for me all the days are blending together! If I think of the sunshine and the madness that descended upon Formby I know I'm close to half term! AnywayI hope you all manged to enjoy the weather and had a break and a chance to relax!

Last week's home learning centred around plants and what they need to grow, if you managed to plant some seeds please remember to continue to look after them over the next few weeks and months! If you didn't manage don't worry the children will cover plants again in Year 3. It was great to see some of the children accessing Purple Mash and Educationcity! If you haven't had the opportunity to access these websites, please try for next week as it is a chance for Miss McGarvey and I to message the children and we both really enjoy viewing their work.

Next week's home learning is Science based again and covers animals and lifecycles in particular. We will look at some of the over aspects of animals e.g. basic needs for survival (I'm sure we've all got suggestions for this adults and children!) the following week (week 3).

We have used a new planning format this week (sourced from Year 3- thank you Miss Irvin!) which will hopefully be more user friendly! We have also 'lightened the load' as school is increasingly aware that home schooling has the potential to become too stressful! If you look at the planning some sections now have the option of picking 2 or more of the tasks. We hope that this is helpful as it is less work for those juggling too many things and allows those who have more time to home school the opportunity to do more, if they so wish! 

Please note that over the coming weeks Miss McGarvey and I will be making some home phone calls to touch base with you and the children and to see how everyone is. We look forward to speaking to you all!

Have a good week, stay safe and take care!
