Plans for Home Learning - Spring Term

Hello girls and boys. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year with your families.

All of the reception teachers were so looking forward to seeing you and hearing all about your holiday, but for now we have to keep ourselves safe by staying at home. So, I will be setting work for you to complete every day. I hope you try your very best and show your mummy's and daddy's what superstars you are, just like I see you try your hardest everyday at school. 

 

Parents, below is the home learning plans and expectations so you know what to expect from the week commencing 11th January. 

 

Your child’s home learning tasks will be uploaded weekly here, on to the class page, on the website for you to complete. This will include online links to web pages. 

The children who are attending school will also be completing the same lessons.

It is vital that your child takes part in as many lessons as possible.

All children have all been given a pack with their next steps highlighted and activities to support, resources for home learning lessons, five school reading books and a ‘reading mission’ starter book. 

In addition to this work your child needs to:

  • Take part in daily Set 1 Phonic Read Write Inc lessons (delivered in 4/5 parts online on You Tube)
  • A Literacy lesson delivered by an Oak National Academy teacher (resources needed are shared are the start of the lesson)
  • A Maths lesson delivered by an Oak National Academy teacher (resources needed are shared are the start of the lesson)
  • A RE/Theme activity given by Mrs Roberts or an Oak National Academy Teacher

On Tapestry Mrs Roberts will upload keeping in touch videos and all EYFS staff will upload a story time video each week.

Post your child’s work and engagement with home learning on to tapestry daily. All staff will like, reply and comment to support your home learning.

If you need further support please send a message on Tapestry. 

This will be a different way of learning but school is always there to support you in anyway. 

 

Take care, Mrs Roberts smiley

Home Learning - Week Beginning 25th January 

Happy Monday Girls and Boys!

I hope you had a lovely snowy weekend and played out in the winter wonderland we were gifted with yesterday. I had lots of fun. I went for a walk in the snow (I even had a snowball fight) and came home to a warm fire and big cup of tea.  

Below is the document with all your home learning for this week. From speaking to all parents last week and listening to what is and isn't working, I have slightly adapted the lesson format to hopefully to be more manageable smiley

I wish you all a great week and to keep an eye out in the post for something that will be delivered this week! 

Mrs Roberts 

Home Learning - Week Beginning 18th January 

Hello Reception children and parents,

I hope you have had a nice relaxing weekend after all of your hard work last week. All the staff are keeping a track of your efforts on Tapestry and you are making us feel very proud. We are still choosing a 'worker of the week' which is being shared on both Twitter and Tapestry, so keep going, keep trying your best and keep learning smiley

 

Reading Books

Parents, to keep a record of the children's reading, every week I need to see your child reading your reading book. Please record your child reading their book. You can of course still help your child with their reading as you film. 

 

Below are your home learning tasks for the week. If you need any assistance with the learning please send a message on tapestry. 

 

Good luck and stay safe,

Mrs Roberts
