Reception

*****Paper packs of the set Home Learning will be available to collect from the front of the school office on Friday 8th January******

January 2021

 

Dear Parents & Carers,

 

I have uploaded a pack of learning below that will take us to February Half Term, when we are expecting a further update on the return to schools.

 

I have included a daily phonics activity, maths, literacy, challenge and other curriculum area task. During the normal school day we always starts with our phonics, so if you wish to start with this, this may help the children with a routine at home. (I have also put phonic sound mats and videos further down the page.) Please note we are currently up to the 'zz' digraph in our sequence of teaching. 

 

I have also put together a list of useful websites that your children can use at home, these are games we have played in class, and use in our IT lessons. Please click on the free links as we do not subscribe to play, and ensure children are supervised when using the internet. 

 

Paper home learning packs will be available to collect from school on Friday 8th but are available to download online.

With Reception children, learning from home is slightly different as they are new to the logistics of remote learning, remember to keep it fun! Counting out pennies for shopping at home and counting how many tins of beans you have are learning experiences!

 

Please continue to read at home each day, and remember children are constantly learning - let them help you do the online shop by writing it down, imagine and act out silly stories, let them write down a list of ingredients for dinner, count how many tins you have and how many more you need, these are simple activities that will help them learn with you. 

 

We will be also be using 'Class Dojo' which is a fun, school based communication platform that teachers, children, and families can use every day to share learning. The simple app can be downloaded onto a smartphone or used through a web browser. 

Myself, Miss Jamie and Mrs Pallett will upload tasks and videos for the children to see each day and you can share the learning the children are doing at home, through photos. 

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any guidance.

 

Thinking of you all,

 

Mrs Joyce

This youtube page has a 5 minute lesson on each of the phonics sounds the children have learnt. The children could watch the mini lesson, then write down all the words they can remember. This could then be extended - children could write sentences using the words.

 

Please encourage your child to sound out the words (segmenting) then get them to blend them together (blending).

 

 

Phonics vocabulary for adults:

 

Single sounds or graphemes - the written individual sounds of the alphabet

Digraphs - 2 letters together that make one sound - e.g oo/ee

Trigraphs - 3 letters together that make one sound - e.g. igh/ear

New sounds for the children to learn - please only sing one song at a time.

Some of our favourite class songs! 

 

We usually listen to these during our morning snack time, so these may be useful in establishing a routine at home.

Dear Parents & Carers,

 

I have put together a list of useful websites that your children can use at home, these are games we have played in class, and use in our IT lessons. Please click on the free links as we do not subscribe to play.

 

Each child has recieved a Home Learning pack, work through this with your child - 3 or 4 pages a day, remember to keep it fun, we are not expecting you to teach the full curriculum to them, we also don't want parents and children to feel stressed or pressured in these uncertain times. 

 

I will keep this page updated with relevant resources. Please continue to read at home each day, and remember children are constantly learning - let them help you do the online shop by writing it down, imagine and act out silly stories, let them write down a list of ingredients for dinner, count how many tins you have and how many more you need, these are simple activities that will help them learn with you. 

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any guidance.
