Morning Routine

Wake up, shake up

Start your day like we always do in school! Here is the challenge – get someone in your family to do it with you! Say hello in French to someone like we do during the register!

Morning Workout!

It is important for us to make sure we exercise when we are not leaving the house as often! Have fun! Today you could choose a cosmic yoga video or Joe Wicks from youtube.


This week we are going to review the sounds that we have been working during these weeks: sh, ch, th, wh, ee, oo. 

It is important to gain confidence with these sounds.

You could print or make your own version of the sheet below. Ask your child to look for one of the sounds ee/oo and put a counter/coin on the words that have that sound. Another option is to underline the words with one sound in one colour and the ones with the other sound with another colour.
