Dear Reception parents and children,
During this unprecedented and disruptive period we will be doing our very best to make sure that you have all you need to keep your children engaged and motivated to learn with you at home.
We will be posting a lot of content on the class page over the coming weeks. While we would really stress the importance of daily Phonics, literacy and maths, it is also important to remember that each child is unique and there will be different things that interest and motivate each child. If your child is showing an interest in a different book to the one we are doing this week, then let them explore that. Some children may also want to spend longer on a piece of work than others may do. Please don't worry about missing a piece of work, falling behind or trying to cram everything we have set in to an unfamiliar and already difficult schedule. Do what you can, what interests your child and what is reasonable for you to achieve depending on your circumstances.
Please do try to do Phonics everyday (there is a guide to teaching this from home further down the page), as this is vitally important to developing your child's reading and writing ability. And please try to read a book with your child each day as well, discuss the book with them and ask them lots of questions. You can get them to write about these in their yellow book in a similar way to the weekly written tasks.
Every week we will post new activities and resources for you to do at home. We will be posting some of our favourite stories and activities to go along with them every Monday as well as regularly adding sentence prompts, maths, RE, understanding the world and creative tasks.
Please make sure that you have access to Purple Mash and TT Rock Stars as we will be setting work on there, if you have trouble getting online then please let us know. We would also like you to utilize Tapestry whenever you can to upload photos or videos of the children learning from home. Again if you cannot log in to Tapestry please let us know.
If you need to get in touch please use the email address - email@example.com
Thank you, as always, for your continued support -
The Reception Team
Hi guys, just like we would have done if we were still coming in to school, we are breaking up for the Easter holidays. We are posting some home work you can do during the two week holidays if you want to, along with a new story and a link to a great website for phonics.
I will still be contactable on Tapestry and on firstname.lastname@example.org but it may take a little longer for me to get back to you during the holiday season.
Have a lovely Easter break everyone!
Hi everyone, below are a number of activities and resources for week 2 of home-schooling.
I have attached a link for our story - Stomp, Chomp, Big Roars! Here Come The Dinosaurs!' - read by Mrs Franklin. With some dinosaur activities to complete - including creating a fact file and drawing your own dinosaurs.
There is a slide show about Lent and an activity to complete together this week.
There are five more sentence prompts to begin the day with.
Please make sure that you are doing at the very least phonics, a sentence prompt and a maths activity each day (whether this is from the activities on this class page or on TT Rock Stars or Numbots). Along with this please try to complete one of the other activities we've set each day too.
All evidence can be photographed and uploaded to Tapestry or can be sent to the email address email@example.com
We will be setting weekly 2Do's on Purple Mash (but right now we're having a little difficulty making this work).
