29th June, 2020
Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine. Thank you for continuing to embrace the regular routine of structured English and Maths work each day, and we continue to focus on ways in which to engage and stimulate your child’s learning. While it is important to focus on the core subjects, please remind them to take advantage of and complete the tasks on foundation subjects too to ensure they maintain a good balance of academic as well as creative thinking skills.
Home/School Contact: Please do not hesitate to speak with us if you have any queries or would like advice/support with any aspect of the guided home learning programme. We are here to work with and support you as well as your child. Please do as much or as little as you feel appropriate.
Maths: This week onwards the children will be revisiting and revising the learning some of the maths topic to enable them to deepen their understanding. This week the children will be revising ‘Multiplication and Division’. The answer keys are also provided; they are either on the next slide or on the notes in the PPT. Mymaths tasks are also uploaded weekly.

RE- This week we continue with our topic ‘Choices’ and the children will learn about Sacrament of Reconciliation. They will also learn and understand the potential impacts of some of their daily choice.

We want your support in encouraging independent reading and in engaging in your child’s reading. Kindly try to build this into your daily routine and have a quiet, comfortable space your child (and you) can read in. We would be delighted if they can complete the daily tasks, but if they cannot, we completely understand.
Mrs Poddar, Mrs Gallaghar and Mrs Williams
