23rd February

Good morning everyone.  


Today our sequence of lessons follows our usual Tuesday timetable, and you will notice a range of P.E tasks are also added. In addition to the home learning provided we will also be starting our new phonics and GPS sessions, currently once a week for each group. I will be asking my GPS group to stay on the zoom call, where we will have a recap on some of the GPS covered so far.  For the usual GPS lesson, I have made power points for each year group, but when I converted them to video, the files were too big for the website, so many apologies. I am working to try and sort this issue out, and if I can I will edit the website as soon as I can.

Have a lovely day everyone, and enjoy the sunshine!

Learning objective - To use a computer program to create WordArt


Listen to the zoom clip of George’s magic medicine recipe for Grandma at the end of the second chapter – it includes jumping fleas, slimy squigglers and the powdered bone of a wombat’s knee. Choose your favourite phrases and use WordArt to write colourful versions, if you don’t have word art on your device it is fine to just use pens and paper.
