Hello from home!
This week started brilliantly with some excellent swimming behaviour on Monday and every one is now on floats – no woggle, no arm bands, just floats! Well done all of you.
On Tuesday we started reading Meerkat Mail. It’s an interesting read, and we’d already done some work on meerkats so we knew a bit about them.
Our Wellbeing Wednesday superhero was Zone Maker, who is about making space and being in your safe zone. We talked about the places that we feel safe in, and how to make space when we feel unsafe.
We’ve also been practicing our square breathing this week, which has enabled all of us to focus our minds and stay calm. If you’d like to have a look at home, here is the link.

On Thursday we finally said goodbye to halves and quarters in Power Maths and began a new topic of position and direction.
We looked at vocabulary with the Hip Hop Granny (KS1 Maths: Position & Direction – BBC Teach) and used this as our warm up, and then watched Kay the Bison lead the herd to a new waterhole How to follow directions – KS1 Maths – BBC Bitesize . We were able to use our own pirate maps to plan our own routes and then we wrote stories to go with our maths work.
On Friday…. I don’t know! I wasn’t there.
I’m back on Tuesday morning, and I’m absolutely fine. (I’m a bit bored, and I miss you lot, but I’m fine.)
Take care and I’ll see you soon.
Look who has woken up! Somebody loves me!
