I am so excited to be writing this message to say that we are finally  able to come back to school and learn alongside our friends as of Monday the 8th March. 
When you return, we will be in a new room and the will need to come in through the purple pod.

I can’t wait to see you all, I have missed you all so much. 

Here is a quick round up of our last week of remote learning…

Phonics will be re-capping all the letter sounds that we have been learning as well as reading and writing words with them in. We will be looking at real and alien words and sorting them into the correct places.

In literacy, we will be focusing on the ditty sheets and being able to hold a sentence. on Thursday, it will be World book day so our planning will focus on celebrating our love of reading and books. 

In maths, we will look at place value within 20. 

There are a number of creative activities for you to try at your own leisure.

couunting down the sleeps now!
See you soon!

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.

Literacy

Monday

Instead of news this week, I would really like you to tell me what you are looking forward to doing when you are back at school.

Make sure you write your sentences using a capital letter at the beginning, finger spaces between your words and a full stop at the end. 

My sentences would be…

I am looking forward to seeing all the boys and girls in Sharman class.

I am looking forward to exploring our new classroom.

 

Tuesday:

Read this ditty sheet:

 

After reading the ditty, ask your child to hold this sentence. 
Remember, to hold a sentence your child will need to read the sentence a number of times until they can remember it – counting the words helps with this. 

Today the sentence is: 

I can get a box of chips. 

Wednesday:

Read this ditty:

After reading the ditty, ask your child to hold this sentence. 
Remember, to hold a sentence your child will need to read the sentence a number of times until they can remember it – counting the words helps with this.

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.

Our Favorite Five

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. Mrs Curtis will be reading them each week for the children to watch and listen to – watch this space!

Spring Term 1 

  •  The Tiger who Came to Tea
  • Cops and Robbers
