Current Learning

Dear Muir and Murie Teams,

 

We hope you have had a good first week of learning at home. We are missing seeing you each day and seeing how you are progressing!

 

There is new learning being added each day for you to complete. Don't forget to go on to the whole school music and PE pages to see the challenges from Miss Diddcott and Mrs Salisbury - can you beat Mrs Salisbury's score for the most keepy-uppies with a cricket bat and cricket ball? Maybe you could challenge a member of the house using different sports equipment?!

 

Remember there is lots of learning to do around the house all the time including:

  • learning to tell the time
  • measuring ingredients to help make dinner
  • create your own tuck shop at home to practise adding and subtracting money
  • reading daily
  • creating an exercise routine for others to follow
  • keeping active by helping with housework or tidying the garden
  • complete a daily act of kindness
  • read what is going on in the world: https://www.dogonews.com/category/world or https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround have lots of news stories
  • write a daily diary (this could focus on anything e.g. your routine or the weather)
  • observe the wildlife outside your window

 

We look forward to seeing you soon and the learning you have completed.

 

Miss Bray, Miss Hamilton, Miss Farebrother, Mrs Coulter, Mrs Nicholas and Miss Allan.
