Week Beginning:  Monday 18th May 2020

Good afternoon Reception,

We hope that you are staying safe and remembering to wash your hands regularly.

This term we are going to be sending you a reading/writing challenge each week. We hope that you enjoy it.

We loved seeing all of your fantastic sentences last week. They really made us smile.

Summer 1-Week 4.

  • Practise your phase 2 and 3 phonic sounds and tricky words. Remember to watch the Letters and Sounds lessons daily. This will help you to learn new sounds too!
  • Read or listen to the Oxford Reading Tree story, ’The Magic Key’. Click the link below.

  • Complete a sentence/s- In my adventure I would ….

The magic key takes me to……

  • Take a photograph of your finished sentence/s and either email them to your teacher or tweet them on Twitter. We would love to see your fantastic sentences.

Phonics
One of the most important and precious things we do in Reception is teaching children how to read, whilst continuing to foster their love of stories and books (indeed, Walt Disney once said “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.”)

Phonics is a crucial part of this process and it is vital that our children continue to practice the fundamentals that are going to stand them in good stead for Year 1 and beyond.

We have watched the three different Phonics lessons on the new Letters and Sounds YouTube channel and they are pitched at just the right level to help all our children. Hopefully your child can remember whose phonics group they were going to before lockdown (if not, just send us an email!).

If they worked with Mrs Thompson, they should access the ‘Year 1’ phonics lessons, if they worked with Miss Blackwell or Mr Davies, they should access the ‘Reception’ phonics lesson and if they worked with Sue, they should access the ‘Learning to Blend’ phonics lessons.

BBC and Oak National Academy
The BBC are providing Maths and English lessons will be available every day for all ages.  These will be created with resources from Bitesize, other parts of the BBC and other education providers. The content of these lessons will be backed up by new videos, practice tests, educational games and articles.  Regular lessons on other core subjects, including science, will also be available.  Mums and dads can get advice on how to teach anyone who is home-schooling and the Bitesize website will also have guides for pupils with SEN (special educational needs).

We would really like you to engage with this initiative to help the children when they reintegrate back into school, whenever that may be.  These lessons will complement the weekly work that your child’s class teacher will continue to set.

To access the resources use the following links:

Oak National Academy are also offering a similar package to the BBC and is well worth checking out using the following link:  https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom

National Education Union – https://coronavirusandschools.org.uk/resources/ – The NEU have put together this document to help support learning at home.  The ‘Adventures in Learning’ packs look good.

 Free E-Learning:
In partnership with the University of Reading, Future Learn is offering a free e-learning called “Covid-19: Helping Young People Manage Low Mood & Depression”

On this course, young people, parents, carers, teachers, and other professionals can learn helpful, practical techniques to cope with low mood and depression during the lockdown period and beyond. You’ll examine how to help young people structure their day and improve sleep and diet and you will cover the following topics:

  • Practical advice on structuring the day and promoting healthy habits
  • Helpful family communication to keep conflict to a minimum
  • The importance of modelling and self-care
  • Tips on managing your thoughts and your feelings
  • Using this time as an opportunity for developing resilience

The course will be available online here for two weeks from 4th May 2020 and takes just two hours to complete.


Message from Mrs Wood

Hello Everyone

I hope you are all well and staying safe.

From today, you and your families will have the opportunity to contact your teachers directly by e-mail,  if you need guidance about the work.

What we can do:-

  1. We can explain the tasks that you have to do, if you are not quite sure.
  2.  You can send your teacher a piece of work, which you are particularly proud of.  Choose one.  Explain why you are particularly pleased with this piece of work.
  3.  We will be able to comment on the chosen piece of special work, which you send.

What we can’t do:-

  1. We won’t be able to mark your work.  You can use the answer sheets from the website, in order to mark your own work.
  2. We won’t be able to have a general e-mail “chat” with you – we will need to concentrate on queries about the work.

Your teachers will check their e-mails once a day, so you can expect a reply within 24 hours, at the very latest.

We are missing you all very much.  The school building seems very strange without you!  Hopefully, it won’t be too long before we can meet with you all again.

With very best wishes to all of you.

Mrs Wood
