Welcome to another week of self-isolation! Please find a copy of the timetable below for the week ahead, plus a couple of ideas sheets I have put together for both Phonics & Reading and Numeracy that you can dip into as you wish. I've also created one for Dough Disco should you wish to have a go! Remember to go with your child's interests too!
Well done to all of you who sent me images and updates on Tapestry yesterday about what you had been up to. There were some truly wonderful firework pictures and creations. I hope that I can share some of them with you in the assembly today. Please find below the timetable of 'live' events that will take place today on TEAMS. Hope to see you there!
Please find below details of what we would have covered in school today. We will be in touch with you today with reminders about how to access TEAMS and further associated details to support you in the next two weeks while we are all self-isolating.
As you know, November the 5th is a day in history that has been remembered for The Gunpowder plot. Traditionally it is the time of year for fireworks and celebrations which is the theme for today!
Talk to the adults at home about fireworks. What sorts of sounds do they make? Can you think of any good describing words? Do they make a fizz, pop or bang for example. How many can you think of?
In school, we would have been creating our very own firework pictures with chalk, glitter and paint. Can you make your own firework picture? Even if you don't have the craft materials could you make one outside in your garden with the fallen autumn leaves and other things you can find? I'd love to see any pictures on Tapestry today!
Y1 children have been looking at Place Value, counting on and back and comparing numbers. Below you will find the video link and associated work sheet to look at terms greater than, less than and equal to. We won't be relying on the video links for the next two weeks but this should get you started today.
All of YR had the phonic card sent home in their packs just before half term. Please continue to revise these sounds. Up until yesterday, they had covered m, a, s, t, d, i, n, p, g and o. Mrs Smith and I will be in touch about TEAMS where we can continue to learn our sounds virtually face to face shortly.
Y1 have been revising their Set 2 sounds 'ay' (May I play), 'ee' (What can you see?), 'igh' (Fly high), 'ow' (Blow the snow), 'oo' (Poo at the zoo) and 'oo' (Look at a book) in particular this week. Can you find these sounds in any of your books that you may share today? Again, we will be teaching virtually on TEAMS, please wait for further details.
Home book packs would have been returned today of course but in the mean time, please use the link below to take you to a wonderful resource of Oxford Owl Books that you can register for freely and start using at home.
If the Willow Class bubble bursts then we shall go onto learning remotely with Microsoft TEAMS and you will be provided with information about how to join daily.
However, if you find yourself having to self-isolate with your family, please see ideas below. These will be added to as time goes on to relate to learning happening in class.
Should you find yourself having to self-isolate, please have a look at the following link from White Rose Maths which will take you to daily maths videos. In the event of children being away from school, the relevant sheet will be uploaded here or emailed to accompany the video in the case of Y1.
Daily counting practice, looking at telling the time, making patterns and games will all be just as equally important should you wish not to use the White Rose resource. A list of games can be found under the Class Page tab, Games and Activities.
Sounds being learned in school will be posted regularly to Tapestry so that they can be practiced at home. Additional worksheets can be found below for the different year groups.
Working from home is likely to mean more time spent on computers, tablets and the internet. Therefore it is incredibly important to ensure you are being safe whilst you are online. Please take some time to look at the slides below to make sure you are doing everything you can to stay safe! Can you help Buddy the dog to be SMART when using the internet?
