Happy Monday Team Spurrier,

The sun is out and it's time for a new week of home learning. 

We are very excited to see some of you back at school today and we wish those of you staying home lots of positive thought and well wishes for the week. 

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 😊 We have loves recieving some bits so far. We have loved seeing you lose your teeth, learning to ride your bikes, baking and so much more. It makes us feel so happy and proud. 

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.
