A Letter from Miss Sparkes

Letter 5 - 29.05.2020 


Letter number five. I hope you all had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend! I’m pleased for everyone we got some gorgeous weather on Monday. It was just so windy on Saturday and Sunday, it felt like the start of Wizard of Oz film (you might not have seen that film, but there is a big, windy storm). 

My week

During the week I went on a few new walks, it has been great to be able to get in the car and travel a little further to see some new sights. I’m planning a few longer bike rides as I really enjoyed them last week. Although I would like a comfier seat. Due to the new rules I am super excited this week as I have planned to go on a walk with my sister, who I’ve not seen since the first weekend in March. I cannot wait! Hopefully it’s nice and sunny so we can have a little picnic near each other too. 

Last Thursday I had another Midwife appointment. She was happy with how big the baby is and found the heartbeat straight away, it always surprises me how loud and fast it is. During the last few weeks, I have taken part in quite a few Zoom NCT classes. I’ve been learning lots about what to expect towards the end of my pregnancy and life when the baby arrives. They even talk about what the colour of poo might be in a nappy. I have loved finding out lots of new information and it makes the whole experience feel very exciting. 

The school website

As it Half Term I will not be sending out new pieces of work for you to complete, however, it would be good for you to continue a little bit of work during the next few weeks. 

Activities you could do: times tables practise, telling the time, practise your joined handwriting, practise the Year 1 and 2 common exception words, read new books, magazines or newspapers, bake something (follow instructions), get crafty and design something that could be used in your house or garden, finally you could even learn to play a new game.
