Phonics ideas using your home learning packs

Please check our web page regularly for updates. I will be uploading planning, support materials and vidoes to support your child’s learning. Your child will be invited to weekly check-ins (on Microsoft Teams) which will take place every Thursday starting from 14/01/20. This is an opportunity for your child to see me, ask any questions, show any work they are proud of and to see some of their friends they might be missing (an adult must be present during these video calls). I will also be continuing to contact you through Marvellous Me – if you have any problems setting this up, please contact the school office. 

Timetable for learning

Please find a suggested timetable on the link below, please do not feel like you need to stick to this rigidly. This is helpful to use to ensure your child has a consistent routine but we understand that the home is a very different place to school. Please allow your child lots of time to play and relax and not to place too much pressure on the activities we have planned. Take this time to enjoy learning alongside your child.

You will call out either a tricky word or a letter sound, they will pick it up hand it to you and then find the next one you call out. How many can they pick up in 30 seconds?

Rights Respecting School

We are a Rights Respecting School at Bronze level. Being a Rights Respecting school means we respect everybody in our school and know that we are all valued, appreciated and heard.

Right of the Month

Each month, we will look at an article and enjoy tasks that enable us to explore our Rights.

Please watch the video below.

Story Time

We read every day in school and the children love to listen to different stories. In this section I will be uploading new videos daily for your child to listen to. Please ask your child questions about the story to find out their level of understanding. We often read the same story more than once so that the children become familiar with how it is structured; they often re tell the story themselves. 

You can also visit our page on Teams where you will find lots of stories read by the staff. You will need to go to the files section and click ‘Story time.

Support Materials

Handwriting/ Letter formation

We teach the children their letter sounds using the Read Write Inc phonics scheme. Each letter sound has a picture to support your child writing and reading the sound. Below are the pictures and how we form the letter, using pre cursive handwriting. It is important your child remembers to ‘whoosh up’ at the beginning of the letter to ensure they are forming it correctly.

They are often able to re tell the story themselves. You will find the books we are focusing on this term below. Miss McConnell will be reading them each week for the children to watch and listen to – watch this space!
