Hi Everyone,


You are working really hard with your home learning.  I am very proud of all the fantastic work that you are doing.  


Today we are learning the sound 'b' and having a go at writing it.    For maths, there is a ladybird game to play - try to count the spots on the ladybird.  There is an investigation to do about what makes a comfortable bed because we all know that Goldilocks didn't like Daddy Bear or Mummy Bear's bed and there is a story to enjoy.


Remember, these are only suggestions but I hope you find them enjoyable.  


Kind Regards,


Mr Leese
