Springbok Class

Summer Term - Wish you Were Here! Is the world really round? How do we get around the world?

Week Commencing 12th April 

 

Dear Children and Parents/Carers,

 

Welcome back after the Easter holidays, we hope you enjoyed the break and the rather varied weather!

 

We are very excited about the term ahead.  The topic is 'Wish you were here' and we will be exploring the questions; Is the world really round? How do we get around the world? We will study the Seven Continents using a book as a story to emerge our senses and really capture our interest in the world around us.  

 

As last term our P.E slot is on a Wednesday afternoon so please come dressed in warm tracksuits and trainers. As before we will be learning outdoors as much as possible so please make sure your child has a warm outside coat and wellies every day.  We will be using the garden to learn all about Spring and Summer in our country.  If you have any donations (or know of any local organisations wishing to donate) of plants, flowers, trees or seeds please let us know so we can make our garden is exciting as possible.  
 

If you need to isolate at home the timetable of what we are doing at school is below (please scroll down for Reception activities and Year 1/2 teaching and spellings).  It is there for you to help you structure your child's day.  Please also encourage your child to take breaks, get moving and go outside for some fresh air.   Wednesday afternoon are left flexible for outdoor activities but can be swapped to fit around your circumstances if they work better.  

 

The structure of the day;

 

In class we always start with a morning challenge ,the Reception children will write their names and some three letter words like cat, dog or pin.  Year 1 and 2 children will have a look at their spellings.

 

Then we have a phonics sessions, please use the sound wallets and/or scroll down for 'Miss G phonics for Reception' and 'Mrs D phonics for Yr 1/2'. The Year 1 and 2 children also have 'alien words' and 'tricky words' to read to you.  

 

Please watch the suggested English and Maths videos, the children can follow the tasks as they go along.  Please feel free to email or post on Tapestry any work your child completes so we can see how they are getting on and provide feedback.  

 

After lunch we complete a topic task that cover the foundation subjects.  

 

Please also let your child read their school book to you and don't forget to read a story to them too.  

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us via email.  

 

Stay Safe!

 

Mrs Daisley and Mrs Rafftree

 

 

 

Reception Helpful Resources

Reception Children;

 

Things I need to do Daily

Phonics

Your child should practise their sounds in their red folder each day. They should think of words beginning with those letters and have a go at writing them. Can they read simple words using the letters they have already learnt e.g ‘m-a-t’?

 

As well as practising the sounds we have already covered, your child will have new sounds and tricky words (words which can't be sounded out phonetically but need to be learnt by sight) to learn each week.

 

Reading – your child should share a book with an adult each day, maybe before bedtime. Encourage your child to sound out some of the simple words which have letters in that they have learnt so far and see if they can remember any of the high frequency words we they have looked at (remember these are words that cannot be sounded our e.g. the, there, was, to etc).

Reading resources - Oxford Owl has 100s of free reading books for pupils learning to read on the reading scheme https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/free-ebooks/

 

Stay Active!

Please try and get some fresh air and exercise each day if you are able to. It’s important to keep our body’s moving and be outside for a short time, taking regular breaks from your learning when if you are able to. If you are not able to go outside, you could do a Children’s Yoga session or Joe weeks on YouTube. There are lots of fun videos to choose from.

In class, we love to do a GoNoodle Dance! Great for getting motivated and fun for grown-ups too! Here is a class favourite but there a plenty of others to choose from also.

Play!

Playing is a great way to learn and as well as completing your tasks each do day, remember to play, explore, imagine and make as we would be doing in our 'getting busy' time at school.
