The 'Oak National Academy' is a government backed online learning platform that has daily lessons in maths, English and topic delivered by teachers. The lessons are sequenced for the week and form a good basis for covering the Early Years curriculum. Although we may have covered some of the aspects, the lessons are good to consolidate the skills the children need. There are three lessons each day. English and maths could be done in the morning with a break in between and the foundation lesson in the afternoon. I will also provide some additional ideas.

The school nurse visited us and told us about washing our hands. She explained when, why and how we must wash our hands.

We performed the ‘Nativity’ story for the rest of the school, our families and friends.

We have enjoyed trying out lots of activities and making new friends.
