Dear Rowan class
Here are a couple of messages for you about some free Monster Phonics webinars, that are being offered to parents. This is the new scheme we have started using in school this year. There is also an update about the Hold Still Photography competition for those of you who entered.
take care, Rosie
Monster Phonics training
We would like to invite you to a free phonics training webinar. This will discuss phonics and show how Monster Phonics works. It will give fun and engaging strategies to improve reading and spelling.
We are aware that many children will need to catch-up after missing time at school. We hope that by sharing the fundamentals of colour-coding combined with multi-sensory activities, we can make greater gains over the coming months.

Hold Still Photography Exhibition update.
Hannah has been sent the following email from the National Portrait Gallery. Fingers crossed one of your entries is chosen!
Thank you for entering your pupils’ photographs to Hold Still, a portrait of our nation in 2020.
We have been impressed and moved by the level of response and the range of images capturing life during lockdown by young people all over the UK. Schools and colleges have participated from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and we have received submissions from children as young as four to young adults of nineteen years old, all speaking of personal experience.
During the next stage of the competition, images will be shortlisted by the Gallery team and then judged by a special panel of judges including Nicholas Cullinan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery and HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.
If your students’ images have been selected as one of the final 100 images in the Hold Still online exhibition, you will be notified during the week commencing 13 July 2020. For those short listed images only we will require permission forms for the photographer (under 18) and the person featured in the photograph if they are identifiable. Please find image permission form templates attached.
A big THANK YOU again to you and your students for taking part in the Hold Still 2020 project and sharing your experiences with us.
With best wishes,
the National Portrait Gallery Learning Team

The View From My Window Art Challenge
We have all spent a lot of time looking out at the world from indoors in these past weeks, haven’t we? As a half-term art challenge, we would love to see what you can see and ask you to create a picture of The View From My Window. It can be any window in your home, it doesn’t have to be exciting, and you can draw, paint, or collage it in any way you wish. This could be a pencil sketch on a piece of paper, a painted picture, or even a collage creation using a shoe box lid.
To see how other artists have sketched their windows, take a look at, https://theartyteacher.com/drawing-a-view-through-a-window/
Send us a photograph of your creation and we will add it to our new The View From My Window art gallery on the Jenny Hammond website.
