It is our last week of learning from home. It has been a very difficult time for everybody, and I would like to thank you all for working so hard. It is very much appreciated.
It will be so nice to see you all next week, and to all be back together again.
Love from Miss Karla.
Read a story together every day. Your child can choose a favourite story, or you might have a new one you’d like to share with them. As you read, encourage your child to talk about the pictures, and what the characters are doing in the story. If it is a story they know well, they may want to join in with some of the repeated language, or tell you what is going to happen next.
Encourage your child to draw a picture every day, of whatever they would like to draw. As they draw, remind them to think about the shapes and colours of the things they are drawing. If it is a person or animal, they might need reminding to add all of the body parts, or the correct number of fingers or legs. Your child should also be encouraged to think about background details for their picture. For example, is there a road, or trees? What kind of weather is it? Ask your child to write their name on their work, using their name card to help them.
Try and get some exercise every day. Maybe you could do some dancing. Choose some favourite music, and make up your own dance moves to it. Have fun!
There is a video of my favourite story, to listen to as part of World Book Day.
