Mrs Southall, Miss Beare and Mrs Sands
Welcome you to Toucan Class!
During this period of time where your child is unable to attend school we have put together a useful list of Online Learning Resources to continue to support your child's learning from home. Alongside this your child will have also brought home their Guided Reading packs with 2x books and comprehension questions, as well as a selection of fun Literacy, Mathematics and Phonics tasks.
In addition to this the websites listed below are frequently used within our classroom so your child will be familiar with many of the games and interactive resources.
We look forward to seeing all of our Terrific Toucans on their return to school.

Our Upcoming Topic will be...
Commotion in the Ocean!
In preparation for this we encourage children to research their chosen sea creature maybe writing a fact file or creating a poster using the information they have found.
Children may also like to practise the 'Continents and Oceans' songs.
Things to remember:
Remember your book bag and PE kit. We have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Parents, please label your child's school uniform.
Toucan class will be visiting the library on Friday 27th September, Friday 11th October and Friday 25th October. Please ensure your child brings their library book to school on these days so they can return and loan a new book during their visit.
