Mental Health Day
As part of our Virtual Visit to India, we have been looking at Rangoli Patterns. We have learned that Hindus draw these patterns on their doorsteps to welcome friends and family during the festival of Diwali. The Rangoli Pattern symbolises strength, generosity and good fortune. Hindus hope that by drawing the symbols outside of their homes, the Goddess Lakshmi will visit and bring wealth and happiness for the year ahead.

Alma Thomas inspired Artwork!
AIma Thomas was an African-American Expressionist painter and art educator best known for her colourful abstract paintings. Alma is considered to have been successful despite her race and gender. She created paintings that focussed on colour and rhythm and pattern.
"Man’s highest aspirations come from nature. A world without colour would seem dead. Colour is life. Light is the mother of colour. Light reveals to us the spirit and living soul of the world through colors.” – Alma Thomas – 1982.
Haytor decided to each create an individual picture to show that everyone is different and this should be celebrated. "People may have different skin colours, or may have disabilities or think different things to us but that doesn't matter. We should always be kind to everyone because that is what is important." - Year 1

Home Learning for Haytor Children
From Monday 8th June, work for children who are learning at home is being provided centrally by the First Federation Trust. That work can be accessed by following this link: https://www.firstfederation.org/home-learning-2/ I am grateful that the Trust is providing this for our families as it will allow my staff to have a balanced workload.
The work is set by a team of experienced teachers from across the Trust. There is an email address for each year group. You should contact that email address for any queries regarding work set, to provide children's work for comment/assessment and for any support with home learning.
Miss Lewis or one the Chudleigh Knighton team are still here to offer pastoral support and we will be in contact with you each week to see how you all are. We can still be contacted via the class email address or by emailing the school office. Please do not contact with queries regarding work set centrally - any queries regarding that work should be sent to the provided email addresses. We will, of course, be very happy to see examples of all of the wonderful things that you and your children have been up to!
Phonics Play is offering a free service at the moment. This is a fantastic website that the children are all familiar with. It will support their phonics learning.
Please continue to use Bug Club, Spelling Shed and Numbots to support learning at home. Login details for your child can be found on the inside cover of their exercise books.
