Welcome back to the summer term!

We hope you are all well and are adapting to this unique situation. We are missing you all greatly and are looking forward to seeing you all very soon. Lots of you have been sharing your experiences and home learning on our Facebook page, thank you! It is great to see what you are up to.

This term, please continue with your home learning in whatever format best fits your home and situation. There is no ‘right’ way, this is a new situation to all of us! The children are still very young, so little and often is usually the best way.

Our topic was going to be based around food and where it comes from, so if you want a theme, then please feel free to use this. We will be regularly updating our Facebook page with ideas. Lexia and TT Rockstars are great daily activities so please keep up with these!

White Rose have got daily maths activities on their site.

Ruth Miskin, creator of Read, Write Inc. (our scheme) is also running daily phonic sessions on Facebook and YouTube. Lots of you have commented on how good they are, so check it out if you haven’t yet.

A great way to start the day is with Joe Wicks at 9am on YouTube  

Remember that we’re all here for you should you need some support.

Don’t hesitate to contact admin@grainthorpe.lincs.sch.uk if you would like any extra resources, feedback on work or advice on what to do next. Mrs Manders and Mrs Mathieson are always available via Facebook too, lots of you have utilised this as a quick and easy way to ask us a question.
