Weekly challeges 8th-12th June

Term 6 week 2

Good morning Team Spurrier, a new week begins :) 

We hope you had a good first week back into 'home learning', we understand this looks different for everyone and that is ok. Try and keep in touch and let us know what you've been up to, even if it's just a photo on the Padlet. We miss you lots and hope you are all doing well 😊 

Reminder of the home learning folder:

We have created lots of resources in the EYFS home learning folder located at the top of the blog (password:Viking). We have created a Term 6 folder for RWI, Maths and Topic. We have put lots of printable resources, power points and lots of other learning ideas that support the tasks below. For example, topic this week may say please see the under the sea powerpoint. This means that we do not need to add the individual links to the bottom of this post as it would be too much but we have added tonnes of things to support your learning. If you have trouble accessing this then please message us.
