Welcome to Peake’s webpage.
Meet the class…
Hello boys and girls,
It is our last week before we will be welcoming you all back into the classroom. I can’t wait to see you all, I have missed you so much!
Our final catch up will be on Thursday at 12:30pm.
See you all soon 🙂
Miss Innes x
*Please find the learning for this week below.
Each week I will save the previous learning here where you will find a link.
Introduction to your home learning packs…
Speed sounds, green words and red words…
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.
Peake Suggested Timetable
Please watch the video above explaining what ‘Super Sentences’ are.
Each Friday in school we award a Super Sentence Hero – someone who has tried their best all week. We would like to continue this and therefore would love you to send in a photograph of your child’s work on a Friday. Please send it to our email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Super Sentence Heroes
Race the timer game
You can use tricky words or letter sound cards.
Place around 10 of either the tricky words or letter sound cards across the floor. Explain to your child that they have 30 seconds to pick up as many cards as possible. 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?
Repeat the game and see if they can beat their previous score.
Phonics Play – Buried Treasure
Follow the link below. You can login to play games for free.
The children are to read the word and decide if it is a real word or a nonsense words. The nonsense words go into the bin, the real words go into the treasure chest.
*Choose Phase 2 or 3*
Today we are going to practise writing some green words.
Sound out the words and write down the letters.
Challenge: Write a sentence about the picture e.g. The dog is big. The cat is on the mat.
Tricky word bingo.
Split a piece of paper up into 4 parts.
Write down some of the tricky words we have learnt so far on another piece of paper: I, go, to, no, the, we, was, are. Ask your child to choose 4 and put 1 in each of the boxes on their piece of paper. Call out the tricky words and see how quickly they get BINGO.

Learning something new…
*It was struck by a lightning bolt.
On 9 July 1984, on a hot summer’s night, a lightning bolt struck York Minster. Fire engulfed the roof, until it collapsed at 4am.
*The Rose Window is world famous
The Rose Window was produced in the year 1515 by the workshop of Master Glazier Robert Petty. The outer panels contain two red Lancastrian roses, alternating with panels containing two red and white Tudor roses.
Draw York Minster
Design your own glass window
This week Miss Innes is showing you one of her favourite recipes. It is really simple and really DELICIOUS!
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.
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.
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.
Click the link below to find out how to form the letter sounds
Read Write Inc Formation Rhymes
Useful websites/ videos (support remote learning)
If you are looking for more ways to keep your child busy at home, the websites below are very useful and will help support your child’s learning further. If you know any other usefuls websites which are age appropriate, please let me know so that I can share for other parents to use.
Reading/ Writing at home
Maths at home
Mini Mash has lots of different activities to choose from and can be accessed at home. Your child has their own login details, they are able to complete activities and save them into their tray for me to look at. Purple mash includes:
- Reading and writing (including phonics)
- Numbers and counting
- Simple city
- Drawing and painting
- Role play
Favourite Five Books
Each half term we focus on five books. We read these books often so that the children children get to know them very well, they learn about the different characters and how the story is structured. 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!
Spring Term 1
