Please find below some home learning activities that you can complete with your child/children. We would not expect you to be completing all of these, but have made a list of ideas which we thought would be useful. Please also keep an eye on the class blog pages, where we may be setting your children some fun challenges, and where you can upload some of their fantastic learning. Do not hesitate to contact us through blog posts/comments; we will be checking them regularly and will always be here to help!
We would encourage families to discuss how they will manage learning at home by:
1) Creating a schedule together.
2) Looking at available resources (see links below).
3) Planning time to sit down and share learning; what has been achieved and what was challenging.
4) Making it fun through creative activities and play.
5) Planning a reward system e.g. sticker charts.
A regular routine may include:
- Daily reading
- Daily maths and writing activity
- Practice on Numbots (log ins are in reading records)
- Handwriting/spelling work (www.spellingframe.co.uk/)
- Contributions to the class blog, e.g. stories and poems
- Daily counting in 1s, 2s, 5s or 10s
- Arts and crafts time
Thank you for all of your hard work,
Miss Williams, Miss Kirby, Mrs Perry and Mrs Hunt.
Reading - all children are expected to read at home at least three times per week. It is essential that you continue reading with your child to not only check their reading accuracy, but also that they have fully understood the story through discussion.
We would love to see as many of you as possible at our weekly reading morning! These are from 8.50-9.10 every Wednesday. You will be able to read your child's school book with them and record it in their reading diary.
P.E bags are needed in school - daps are not required until Term 5&6.
P.E. in Owl Class is on Mondays and Wednesdays.
P.E. in Otter Class is Tuesdays and Thursdays.
P.E. in Octopus Class is Tuesdays and Thursday.
There are a few children who struggle to undress and re-dress themselves and we urge you to let your children dress themselves at home. Tights are a real struggle and on P.E. days socks might be an easier option!
