Kindness Week

 

 

Welcome back, we hope you had a lovely week off with some yummy pancakes!

As we are now in Lent and Lent is all about giving things up and starting new habits, we thought we would have a themed week on ‘Kindness’ – full of stories, challenges and craft activities. Don't forget to send us lots of pictures of your child's learning so we can add some team points in their jar. 

 

Spellings are still being set each week. Phonics will now be a few different activities – practising the sound in words, a fun video and 2 worksheets/games. You do not have to complete all of them, but extra activities have been added each day if you feel like your child would benefit from extra practise. We will now be setting P.E challenges this week as well as the normal learning so we can all try and stay active together.

Have fun!

The Ahlberg team.
