Online Safety
You are probably spending a lot more time online than usual so it is really important that you remember the dos and don'ts when you are using the internet. The activities on the ThinkUKnow website are to do with an adult and are simple and quick and will explain how you can stay safe.

Alphabet Charts and Diagraph and Trigraph Mats

At Moorlands we use Alphabet Charts and Diagraph and Trigraph mats as a table top resource. These help us lots with our writing across the curriculum!

These are also useful to help children with their homelearning. Please click on links below to access them at home.

This half term we are thinking about special books. 
Mr Kill's favourite special book is Ocean Star Express. This is because he used to read it to his little boy Archie when he was very small. 
Do you have a special book?
Why is it special? Will you always feel that your book is special? Why/why not? Will it still be special when you are grown up? Do you think you will get other books that will be more special? Are the same books special to everyone? What do you think about other people’s special books?
