It was parents evening this week and I wanted to say thank you to all parents who I had the chance to speak to- it was great to talk to you about how your child is getting on! If you have got parents evening next week, can I ask you to check your junk mail boxes for my zoom email- because you don't have my email in your contacts the email seems to send it to the junk box. Let me know if you have any issues finding it. I sent the emails out on Saturday morning.
One of the things that I spoke to a lot of parents about at parents evening was getting your child to do lots of writing at home. This is why I am asking for a homework around writing this week!
Keep a diary of your weekend. Tell me about Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
In a diary you include:
What you got up to
How you felt
Dear diary, Friday 27th November 2020
I was in the blue zone this morning- I was really tired. I walked to school- it was really cold and foggy. I don't like the fog. First we went for our weekly run around the pitch. After that we did our writing. Next was playtime, I played stuck in the mud. After playtime we went to Violins.
Lunch today was pizza and salad and it was delicious. After lunch I felt really sleepy. We went to the library and then it was hometime. When I went home I played with my brother. Then I did some painting. I went to sleep early because I was in the blue zone again.
Dear diary, Saturday 28th November
I woke up late this morning and had breakfast while I looked out the window. I still felt really tired. I got my toys out and played for a bit. After about an hour of playing we went to the park- I played stuck in the mud and grandmothers footsteps. We came home and had pasta for lunch- it warmed me up after being cold outside.
Next I read my book for about half an hour and then did my homework.
Do your diaries in your homework books and bring them back on Monday!
Have a great weekend!
