JO's DAILY UPDATE...
Friday 3rd April 2020
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have had an enjoyable week being active and creative with activities at home.
Today would have been the last day of the term at school before the 2 week Easter break! I have put some learning activities in the Easter folder below to keep your learning going over the holidays. There are plenty of Easter art and craft activities to keep you busy. Also check out some Easter recipes in the recipe folder. I think I will be making a few myself!
Also if you haven't done so already, check out the Twinkl website. The link and details are below in the websites folder. Use the code UKTWINKLHELPS to set up an account. This is a great website to find lots of printable learning resources.
I will continue to check my emails over the break and check in with you during the holidays. Please do keep sending pictures, it is lovely to see what you have all been doing.
Have a happy, safe and blessed Easter.

Welcome to Pine Class Page
In accordance with the latest government advice, we have had to close the school until further notice. Of course, this is not ideal but with your help, we will endeavour to keep your child’s learning moving forward during this unprecedented situation.
On a weekly basis I will post work for all the children to complete. Please check the page regularly.
In addition, I will add suggestions for activities, projects, websites and videos that we would like your child to access.
If you would like to send me any learning electronically such as a word document, a photo of something you have created or a video you have made, please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org I would really love to see what you have been doing! Also, if you need any help, please let me know.
Frequently, this will involve logging in to the LGFL (London Grid For Learning) suite of websites. You will have recently received a letter with your child’s individual username and password. These login details will remain in place for the duration of your child's time at St Richard's, so please keep them safe and secure. Whenever a website prompts you to login, look for the red 'USO Login' button to enter the username and password.
We understand that each family will be coping with the current situation in different ways, which may affect how much and how often you will be available to support your child with their work. It is still also very important to get some fresh air with your family when you can do so safely. To help you to plan for your day, here is a suggested timetable that you could use. It might help you manage your learning and your family fun.
9:00 - Start of day...why not try with 15 minutes of reading…either sharing a book with an adult or telling a story using the pictures.
9.15 – Creative time – you could make a picture, build with blocks, complete some puzzles.
10.00 - Stop for a snack, a break and some fresh air!
10.30 – Do a helpful job around the house – wipe the table, help load/unload the dishwasher, help fold the laundry, make your bed
10:45 – Have a look at some online learning websites such as Busy Things, Phonics Play, Cbeebies, BBC bitesize.
11.00 – Activity of your choice
11:45 -Time for a break and some lunch....maybe you could prepare this for your family.
In the afternoon there are many things that you could do:
- Go for a nature walk and play I Spy. What interesting things did you see or collect?
- Ride your scooter or bike
- Help make a snack, lunch or dinner
- Do some cooking
- Junk modelling – use recyclable materials to create something ie a robot, a castle.
- Try some art or craft. Maybe try a simple science experiment
- Play a game with a family member, learn a new song or have a go at some indoor exercise!
- Send your teacher some photos of what you have been doing
- Try and limit the amount of technology you use in the afternoon
Remember to stay safe, look after each other. I will keep in touch with you all here and send you messages. I will also share any of your photos or learning you send me.
I will miss you all!
