We will be adding learning on this page whilst the school is closed. We have tried to use the Espresso website so content is all on one site and Espresso can be used on a number of platforms. Below you will find sections for Phonics, Literacy, and Numeracy, work through these tasks at your own pace throughout the week. You will also find all the Challenge Passports and some other activities to keep the children busy. Thank you for your support during these difficult times.
Why not start your Monday with a workout with Joe Wicks?
He is launching live PE lessons for children on Monday - Friday at 9am on his YouTube page.
I am definitely going to be giving it a try so come and join in the fun!
The children will be able to tell you which phonics group they are in. Each week we will let you know which groups of sounds to learn, there are videos to watch and the activity tab has a number of activities to complete over the week - Once logged into the Espresso website -

For Literacy we are asking children to practise writing their full names and make a simple diary, at least 3 times a week, they are to write a simple sentence about something they have done on that day. We will also like them to a story on Espresso and then complete the activities for that story, again these can be found in the activity link on each story page.

Week 2 - Addition and Subtraction - Please see the attachments below these can be printed or can be done off the screen.
We also do lots of practical maths in Foundation 2, so you could set yourself some challenges for example, if I add up all of my cars and all of my dinosaurs how many do I have? If I count all of my cuddly toys and then take away all of the brown ones how many do I have left? How many coats are hanging up, and if I take all the grown up ones away how many are left? If I add up all of my shoes and all of my hats how many are there altogether?
You could also write some number sentences for yourself and use some practical resources to help you find the answer e.g. pennies, pencils, pasta etc.
