STAR READER is Eleri in Reception who has completed an amazing 14 books and 18 Bug Questions this week.
Let’s see how many more of you can be on the Bug Club Hall of Fame next week.
Make sure when you are reading you complete all of the bug questions (otherwise the book doesn’t show as completed and won’t disappear to your library) – remember the bug goes to sleep once you’ve answered the question.
You may be aware that we were one of the pilot schools to develop and trial ‘Calm Brain’ resources, and continue to use these throughout school.
Parents and carers of schools that use Calm Brain are being given free access to all resources until schools re-open. A number of schools had observed increased stress and anxiety levels in children and their parents in the lead up to the government announcing the closure of schools due to Covid-19.
Thousands of parents are currently using CalmBrain at home, and the feedback they are receiving is that they are finding it helpful with their children.
Accessing the resources is very straightforward – you just need to follow these steps:
It’s lovely to wake up to so many more emails and photos of all the lovely things going on!
Again lots of smiles! It’s great to see so many of you accessing the Whiterose materials. What amazing mathematicians you will by the time we are back at school! Jack, I’m loving the rainbow you’ve painted and am really impressed with your work on fractions. Harrison mum has informed us how amazing your attitude to learning has been, well done and keep it up! Grace you’ve done a fab job with your salt dough creations and Phoebe your flexibility is unbelievable! Poppy, I’ve heard how hard you’ve been working with your maths and spellings, we are very impressed.
Have a lovely day everyone!
Mrs. Shah, Mrs. Thomas, and Mrs Gallant 🙂

Another week of amazing activities going on…
Well done everybody for not only practising your Maths, English and Reading Comprehensions but for learning new skills through play, cooking and arts and crafts. It’s lovely to see so many of you helping your parents around the house, I’m very impressed with the decorating Carmen! Most importantly the best thing is to keep smiling and having fun and looking at all the photos I can see you’re all doing that.
Well done year 2 and keep smiling!!!!
