Raising awareness

A huge thank you to everyone who have sent us their rainbows to help us celebrate the different skin colours in our St. Matthew's community. We have received lots more rainbows! We will collate all of the pictures and display them on a slideshow so we can celebrate our School's diversity. If you haven't sent yours in yet, don't worry - we can keep adding pictures as we receive them. If you're wondering where to find the information from, please look at Week commencing Monday 15th June 2020.


Weekly overview

Below is the weekly overview which outlines the learning objectives (WALTs) that are going to covered in the tasks.

Here is a reminder of how our differentiation works: 

  • 1 chilli mild - the easiest version of the task.
  • 2 chillies medium - the version that we'd expect most children to be able to access. 
  • 3 chillies spicy - a difficult version of the task for children that require a challenge. 
  • 4 chillies super spicy - the most difficult version of the task for the children that require a challenge, having securely understood previous tasks. 

Please don't be afraid to hop between the different levels of challenge.
