Welcome back !

Second Half Term Topic - Transport

First of all a huge round of applause to all of you who have helped your child every day to keep entertained and well looked after every week. You have all been brilliant. These times are not easy and finding creative ways to have fun with your children, will make a huge difference to their well being, thank you. 

This half term my time will be split between supporting those of you home learning and those children in school. This may mean that any messages you send to me, may not get replied to until later on in the day or evening. We will be covering the same topics each week. We will also do a weekly zoom meeting on Fridays, the timings of the zoom call may vary, but I will keep you informed. 

This half term we have a new topic of Transport, with many exciting activities planned. The structure of home learning will take a slightly different look, there will be Phonics, Maths and English weekly. Then the afternoons will be about outdoor learning and taking a written focus on making a report about your local area, the things that you have enjoyed doing. It will also allow you the time to enjoy the summer weather with your family, but I would ask that you ensure that you cover the English, Maths and Phonics. Also to keep up with all the excellent reading that you have been doing. Thank you. I will regularly be adding updates to this page, there will be lovely Summer ideas to get involved with, so watch this space.

Stay Kind to one Another. 

Thanks Again # TEAM

Legacy Art Project

Portrait tutorial

Mrs Hodgson has created a tutorial to get you started with your Legacy Project portrait using just one colour.

As a special legacy for future generations of this time we would like children in the school to draw themselves in certain colours. We will then use the different colours to create a rainbow effect piece of art work in school. We would love it if as many children in each class can do this as possible. Please see the attached letter for more information.  The completed portraits need to be handed into the school office by 5th June. The colour for foundations portraits are red. Please watch this clip for more information.

Looking to the Rainbow Words

Backing Tracks for Rainbow Song

Why not collect together all your teddies and give each one a medal you have made to celebrate VE day.  We are celebrating 75 years since the end of World War II, 1945-2020, when soldiers were brave and heroic and gave their lives in battle. Your child could do some VE day baking or make medals or colour in bunting or colour in the lego heroes.

 

If you would like to explain in more detail to your child what happened on VE day please use the powerpoint below.

 

Horrible Histories have also made a jolly song to reflect the joyous occasion that VE day represents, if you would like to watch this with your child to gather a sense of the party atmosphere that swamped VE day in 1945. 

 https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/watch/horrible-histories-songs-ve-day-song

 

Please can you email the office or upload photos to seesaw of  anything  special your child has made to celebrate VE day. Thank you.

 

Today everyone who stays safe and stays at home, is a hero of a different kind, but a hero nonetheless. Well done everyone for keeping everyone well and safe.

Phonics Advice

The children should soon be ready to start Phase 4 phonics, the next three weeks we hope to consolidate their learning and revise all the phase 3 phonemes. It is very important we don't rush on too fast to ensure that all children have their learning secure in phase 3 before we embark on phase 4 phonics. Hopefully you should see their progress in phonics coming through in their fluent reading. Your child should by the end of Phase 3 be able to write and read all phase 3 tricky words independently, as practiced on Tricky Word Trucks, phonics play.

The following two weeks, week commencing 4th May and 11th May, Week 5 and Week 6 of Home Learning will see a revision week of learning in phonics, with the very last week before May half term, being an informal assessment of phase 3 phonics. 

Any questions about phonics, just ask, thanks Mrs Maxey

BBC Bitesize- Online Lessons

 

There are some exciting developments with Twinkl working alongside the BBC to produce some lessons for the children to watch and take part in. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/primary

 

Whilst there is not a specified EYFS page, as the children draw closer to their transition into Year 1, many of the children are suitably able to access some elements of the Year 1 curriculum and I would recommend looking at some of the weekly learning that is being shared on this page. This is a very helpful and brilliant resource. Please use and dip into this.
