I hope you are have had a good isolation weekend. We are over half way now.
Last week we had a great turn out for registration and phonics. Big thank you for adult help and support during these sessions. Also for all of the hard work being posted on Tapestry. This will be valuable evidence towards your childs learning journeys and is very much appreciated. Thank you!
I will be doing a morning registration with all the Reception children at 9.30am via zoom followed by a phonics session. Please make sure you have a whiteboard and pen or paper and pencil so that you can join in with phonics.
At school we have started having a daily challenge in the writing area associated with the sound that we have learnt that day. Children are asked to complete this independently at their leisure before lunch and put it in the finished tray. They have become really good at completing this. Children did really well with this last week. Again I have posted these in the home learning folder under phonics as well as on Tapestry. Can I ask that you do the challenges in line with the phonics sessions. If children do them before they have been introduced to a new sound it can be confusing.
I will also be doing a zoom on;
Monday - Story Telling - The Enormous Turnip - 1pm
Wednesday - Maths - counting 1pm (please have whiteboard and pen/ paper and pencil with you)
Friday - Maths hunt 1pm
We do not expect children to be home learning all day, everyday. Phonics and maths are a priority if possible to keep children on target and in the routine of doing this daily.
If you have any questions. Please do not hesitate to ask. You can contact me on the Willow class home learning email: firstname.lastname@example.org
All home learning will be uploaded by the end of the day.
Thank you for your patience and ongoing support.
Miss Gaff is feeling much better and will be joining us on zoom. We are looking forward to seeing her and are glad she is feeling better!
See you on zoom!
