Whilst you have been at home, your teachers have been looking after a few children at school. They have all been doing Active Dance so we thought you might like to join in and dance along with us at home. Don't forget to smile!
We are sorry that you are currently not at school and we will be sending a ParentMail every week to keep in touch with all our families. In the year group areas below, you will find plenty of activities and websites to support your learning at home.
We do not expect you to complete all the activities but would ask that you try and read, do some writing and some maths most days. We are sure you can organise your own time but just in case you would like some direction here is a possible timetable.
9am Read or share a book and talk about it
9.30am Choose an English activity

Remember to have fun and enjoy this special time with your children. If you would like any further advice please email email@example.com and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
***These challenges have been well received so they are continuing for another 4 weeks through June. For year groups and children still at home, please keep having a go and sending your scores across to the email address provided. All children receive a certificate each week and there are county winners as well as school winners announced each week. I know we have enjoyed taking part with the children at school and hope to continue to still do this each week***
Well done to everyone who is taking part in the weekly challenges. Remember you can email your scores across to the email at the bottom of the grid for a chance to be the school weekly winner and to receive your certificate.

For MAY the Hampshire School Game Organisers (SGOs) network are launching 'School Games Mark May'. A four week programme of daily challenges linked to the sports played at the annual Hampshire School Games.
We are really excited to join the 4 week School Games Mark May programme at Fleet Infant School. Each week, daily challenges from two sports will be released. For example, Football - Monday/Tuesday and Netball Wednesday/Thursday. With Friday a day for children to try beat their previous score in the week. We hope some of you will take part and enjoy giving some of the challenges a go. I know your teachers would love to see any photos or videos of you taking part.
There are challenges for KS1 and KS2. Ignore the KS2 and focus on KS1 challenges. There is a warm up game too for you to do if you would like.
Below are the challenges for each week along with information to the Dance Challenge.
The Dance Challenge is separate to the other challenges. You do not have to do the Dance Challenge if you are taking part in other challenges. They have been put in place for those who love to dance/move and be creative. If you choose to complete this, it’ll run for the first 3 weeks in May; the winners will be used for the closing ceremony of School Games Mark May.
Parents can email their child's score direct to Catherine firstname.lastname@example.org or via facebook, Instagram or twitter. This email is on the bottom of the record sheet. You do not need to print the sheets, you can change and email back. They will then email out the scores by Wednesday for the previous week.
School Games Mark May will be putting up tutorial videos on how pupils should do each challenge. These get put on daily at 8am. These can be found on their facebook/twitter pages - @HampshireSGO
They have also put together an intro launch video and can be found via the link below:
June Dance Challenge
Mental Health, Wellbeing and On-line Safety
We understand that being at home for long periods and missing friends is difficult for all our families. As part of our Personal Development Learning in school we use the SCARF resources which help us discuss some tricky issues with children. The company which produce these resources have now included some guidance for parents to help you through this difficult time. This also includes activities to remind your child about how to stay safe on line, especially as their on-line use is likely to have been increased. Have a look at the link below to see what is available.
Harold's Daily Diary
In school, our children love the visit from Harold in the Life Education bus. Harold now has a daily diary which your child can access to see how he is keeping busy at home and away from his friends.
There has been a new publication called 'Coronavirus a book for children' by Axel Scheffler. This is very well written, in a way that is accessible to children and answers lots of questions the children may have, especially around why school may be different when we return. Click on this link to access the book.
