TOP TIPS ON HANDWASHING:
- Count for 20 seconds as you wash your hands after holding someones hands, after you've been to the toilet, after handling animals and before you eat!
- Sing happy birthday twice to ensure hands are fully cleaned.
- Follow the instructions above for guidance.
Here are some great videos to make kids aware of the importance of washing hands and for a gentle explanation to the Coronavirus.

Please watch the video below for this week's assembly led by Mrs Hough :)
Welcome back to Spring 2 everybody!
We hope you had a lovely half term:)
Our topic for this half term is FOOD! You are what you eat! Our parent letter and mind map are below:
Book of the week (wb 01/03/2021 )
The Little Red Hen
As with the Gingerbread Man, lots of you will have heard the tale of the Little Red Hen. We have found a few different versions of this lovely story for you - have a read or take a listen above. Did you notice how the stories are different to each other? For example, do they have the same animals or end in the same way?
What do you think about the ending? Do you think the Little Red Hen was right not to let the other animals share her bread? What would you have done?
This week, we have suggested some activities you might like to try each day - feel free to pick & choose or mix them up and do them in any order:)
MONDAY: Have a listen carefully to the story (see above for videos/pdf of story). Have a go at colouring in/cutting out the animals you would like to have in your version of the story. See if you can write some words to go with the pictures, e.g. the names of the animals or a simple sentence: 'Not I' said the dog...
TUESDAY: Have another listen to the story. Then have a go at completing the story map. Can you put the pictures from the story in the correct order?
WEDNESDAY: See if you can have a go at one of the animal speech bubbles. What would you like your animal to say? You can use words from the story or make up your own!
THURSDAY: Take a listen to the Little Red Hen song below. See if you can make some finger puppets of the characters in the story and sing along with them:)
FRIDAY: Have a go at the Little Red Hen handprint activity.
Do you have any craft bits and bobs at home that you could use to make your own Little Red Hen like the ones above (click on image to enlarge)? Have a look and see what you can find, or take a look at the video below for more ideas:)
This week we have found some Little Red Hen themed maths activities to have a go at and we will be looking at the idea of halving & sharing.
The Oak Academy have two lessons that explore the concept of halving:
We have suggested some activities to try each day:)
MONDAY: Watch the video below and then have a go at drawing your own sharing circles. Choose one of these numbers: 2,4,6,8 or 10. Can you put half in each of your sharing circles?
TUESDAY: Can you have a go at this sharing home learning challenge? Find some toys and see if you can share them fairly - make sure you start with an even number:)
WEDNESDAY: Can you help the teddy bears share out all the food fairly at their picnic?
THURSDAY: Can you feed the bananas to the monkeys and share them out equally so they all have the same number?
FRIDAY: Have a go at sharing out all the spots for the ladybirds - make sure they have half each:)
And if you still want more...!
You are all doing SO brilliantly with your Lego Challenges - here are a few more for the week ahead!
1) Can you make a chicken out of Lego?
2) Or how about a farm with some farm animals?
3) Make something with your favourite colours:)
