Good morning everyone! Thank you for emailing us, reading books online and completing the activities on Education City! It is really great to know you are engaging with all of the work.
This is also a reminder though that doing the work in 10-15 minute bursts might help if you are finding it tricky to concentrate at home - remember we have busy learning days at school but we also have lots of playing time - inside and outside! You are all really doing a great job doing all your learning at home, and I have a surprise for you when I reply to your emails today!
Let's find out what we are going to be learning about today!
We will start with Geraldine Giraffe as she learns the 'ey' sound. I have also added a comic strip and a 'phoneme spotter' to see if you can find the ey sounds in.
Today's word of the day is
Remember to practise reading, writing and spelling it during the day today.
Yesterday's maths work proved a little tricky for some of you as you found using the mathematical symbols for greater than and less than a little confusing. Let's see if you find today's work using the vocabulary of more than and less than a little bit easier.
Topic - Music
I thought today we would keep with the traditional tale theme and do some music based around The Three Little Pigs.
The first activity is to warm-up your voices. I cannot seem to do a direct link, so I will guide you through the pages.

There are 3 activities to complete. On activity 3 it asks for instruments. You might not have any at home but that doesn’t matter as you can listen to the instruments used as an accompaniment. I hope you enjoy it!
The Wire gymnastics club has some great activities to get you moving. Why not join in with them below.
If you prefer, they also have a gymnastics Zoom this afternoon.
To finish our learning off for today I hope you like The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!
See you tomorrow,
Lots of love from
