Friday 22nd May

Good morning Class R. 

Well it’s almost weekend again, it soon comes around!  We have a lovely holiday to look forward to, so please take a well earned rest from school work. 

Thank you so much for your continued efforts - it has been wonderful again to see all of the excellent work you have completed this week!

Enjoy the weekend! smiley

Love Mrs Griffiths x

Here is today’s home learning:



We have a very important job for you to do Class R!

For your writing task today I would like you to write a review of your time in Year R for your school report.

We would normally do this together at school and enjoy remembering all the wonderful things we have done, but this time we would like you to do your absolute best writing for us at home.

In your ‘Review of the Year’ I would like you to write about all the fantastic things you have enjoyed in Year R.  You might like to write about all the new things you have learned, the different lessons you have enjoyed and all the other wonderful learning opportunities like our trip to Grappenhall Heys Walled Gardens, our Fairy Story assembly, PE with Dave, our fantastic Nativity and much more.  Have a look back at our class page for some reminders of the wonderful things we have done!

You can also include your achievements, what you think you have really improved on and what you are most proud of.  There is also space for you to write about something that you think you could be even better at and have this as your own personal target for next year.

We would like you to do your absolute BEST writing, so beautiful handwriting, clear finger spaces between words, careful use of capital letters and full stops.  All of this should be done in a good quality, sharp writing pencil please.


You can print off the template below and write directly on to that or if you need to, we will have blank copies available to collect from school today.

Once it is completed, please can you return it to school by Friday 12th June.

You can do this by scanning or taking a photograph of your work and emailing it to school.


Posting it to our school address.


Delivering it by hand in to the ‘Red Post-box’ which will be outside, at the front of school from Monday 8th June. heart


Look at the sheets below and can you work out the answers using the knowledge from the practical activities you completed yesterday?  Then can you sort the pictures into full, half-full and empty?

Here is your work for today:


Writing – Purple mash

I have set a phonics task for you to complete on Purple mash – write instructions to make rice crispy cakes.  In the Easter holidays I gave you the recipe and instructions for the cakes and many of you made them.  Using the word bank write each step to make the cakes and add the pictures with the instructions.  Maybe if you have the ingredients you could try and make the cakes with your parents following your own instructions.  smiley   Please complete by the 25th May.



When you have completed the Purple mash activity, write your instructions in your writing book.  Then draw a picture of what the Rice crispy cakes will look like when finished.
