Update on Outdoor Learning at HFS
In the early morning hours, long before anyone was up, Mr Fyfe and his wife recorded the dawn chorus (yes, the birds have their own choir ) in the HFS nature area. Mr Fyfe has kindly cleared the whole area to welcome wildlife to HFS and to welcome you when you return to school. As we enter a new month, there will be changes to spot in your garden and local area. Please open the link below to watch the video clip from the RSPB about small creatures. Please let me know if you have anything to report on the class email account. Use the title 'Report for Mrs Lonergan' and your teachers will pass it to me. Remember that your parents need to be responsible for emails sent to your teachers.
Thanks! I can't wait to hear from you!

Coronavirus Plans to Support Work at Home if Required:
In case the school closes due to advice from the Government, we have set up some work plans to support your child during this period at home. Please do your best to complete what you can and support your child at home in a way that suits you and your child's needs.
The most important things to continue daily are:
* Reading: Hearing your child read and discuss texts read - re-read books from home, read cookery books, instructions to games, magazines, etc if your school books are completed. Spotting tricky words within books at home. Review the common high frequency word list below to aid instant recognition, we do this in school daily too.
*Handwriting: Model and encourage your child to follow the correct formation of one group of letters at a time so that they master the pattern, include words that use these letter types also especially from the tricky word list. Please see PDF below for printable templates to use.
*Number: Can your child order a random selection of numbers to make a numberline from 0 - 20, naming each number in the correct order. Make sure they are counting out correctly also, there will be plenty of counting activities available upon Busythings too.
