Wednesday 3rd March
A very good Good morning and welcome to Wednesday, Choughs and Robins. The countdown is on and if you haven't seen already, you can make your own countdown to school just like Afia has (post on Tapestry)! We have seen some super activities going on at home so far this week. Matilda has made some delicious looking froggy bread, Felix has made a pond for Frog's, Darcey has ready Dear Zoo and practised her rhyming words, Henry retold the story of What the ladybird heard using a map, Millie nearly got blown away on the beach with a kite, Millie J and Isabelle have been practising their doubles using ladybirds, Lily has been on a bird hunt around Heamoor reservoir, Casper built a superb trap for the thieves in the story of What the ladybird heard and Eli has been practising his numbers using his homemade number cards! Phewww! What fantastic work from everyone. Please remember to break up your day with a stroll out to the woods or the beach or even around your local area. A walk and some fresh air always has the magic to make us feel so much better!
We hope you are enjoying the stories on the learning grid this week. Keep uploading work on Tapestry, keep in touch. Call, email or ask on Tapestry if you have any queries, worries, wobbles, anything at all. We are still here for you and will support you all in any way we can. 
Don't forget that world Book Day is on Thursday and is the day you will all be able to dress up, send photos, and really focus on books and the pleasure of reading. It's the day to highlight for our children the importance of reading not only as a skill but also as a gateway to more fun, pleasure, enjoyment and knowledge. Here is the link to the world book day website with a special video of all the teachers from Alverton school and their world book day nominations! 
We would also like to give you all a gentle reminder to return any whiteboards and reading books that you have borrowed from school. These do not need to be back on the 1st day but if you could return them throughout the week, we would greatly appreciate this. We would also love to see what you have been doing at home, so if you could bring in your yellow journals in the 1st week back, we would love to see these too. Please don't worry if you didn't collect the yellow journal from school. If you don't have one or if you don't have anything in it then please don't worry about this either. 
We hope you all have wonderful day whatever you may be doing. 3 days left and then we will be there to take the reins. Have a super day everyone!
Best wishes and stay safe, 
Miss Hooton & Mrs Daylak
