Jesus you are good and wise
I will praise you when I rise.
Jesus, hear this prayer I send
Bless my family and my friends.
Jesus, help my eyes to see
All the good you send to me.
Jesus, help my ears to hear
Calls for help from far and near.
Jesus, help my feet to go
In the way that You will show.
Jesus, help my hands to do
All things loving, kind, and true.
Jesus, guard me through this day
In all I do and all I say.

Hello Water Class! 
Welcome to our 2nd week of Remote Learning!

A huge well done to all of you and your families for the fantastic effort last week. I have received so many amazing photos, videos and emails from lots of you and I have been incredibly impressed. Lots of gold stars were earned by children and parents! 

If you have not yet emailed me yet, please do this week. All of the Home Learning still goes towards your child's Early Learning Development and really matters. 

So, this week we will be looking at the Gruffalo in our English focus which always reminds me of Christmas! I hope that you enjoy all of the activities and I look forward to seeing them all. Mrs Pilcher is looking after your Purplemash activities and is really proud of your online learning which have made her smile. 

We can't wait to be back in the classroom together. 
See you soon. Mrs Handford & Mrs Pilcher xx
