We are Golden and we SPARKLE
Hello to all our amazing F2 children and families. We send our love to you all – and miss seeing you every day. Well done to everyone who has completed tasks already. We have been so thrilled to see the work you have shared with us on Tapestry, Purple Mash or via email and we will be sharing some of your pictures in our Gallery. If you are having issues accessing any of the above please do not hesitate to contact us – we will be checking our class email regularly.
PLEASE remember that children learn so much through their play. Continue to do all the things you love to do together – play games, paint, make, colour, draw, sing songs, tell jokes, read books and play outside if you can.
Also, use this time to teach your child to use a knife and fork properly, and encourage them to get themselves dressed. These independent skills are great for your child's self-esteem as well as their control and co-ordination.
We hope we have provided you with loads of learning and activities to keep you busy. Please do not feel you have to do it all straight away. And remember to contact us if you have any questions or are feeling overwhelmed.
We are so proud of everything your children have achieved so far this year, and even though they may not be in school for a little while, we know they will continue to grow and develop. We hope you all stay healthy and safe and we look forward to staying in touch on a regular basis. Take care,
This half term we will be ‘Explorers’ and discover different lands and places through our 3 key texts: Non-fiction Dinosaurs, The Gruffalo and We’re going on a Bear Hunt. We will squelch in thick, oozy mud, wade through a deep, cold river and hope not to be gobbled up by a Gruffalo.
In Literacy we will be researching and writing lots of interesting facts about dinosaurs, singing about and describing the features of the Gruffalo, and sequencing and innovating the Bear Hunt story. In Phonics, we will continue to learn within Phase 3 and re-cap our previous learning, plus lots of catch up in-between. In maths, we will explore numbers to 15 with a focus on halving, sharing, 3d shapes, more work on 10s frames and part/part/whole models.
In the other areas of our learning we will focus on how we learn in school and how we resolve conflict, and show our understanding through lots of discussions. We will be celebrating many different and varied events this term including WORLD BOOK DAY, Red Nose day, Mother’s Day, Vaisakhi, Passover and not forgetting Easter. We will continue to learn in our Outdoor classroom as well as exploring our fabulous forest area.
We miss you all terribly and hope to see you as soon as it is safe to do so.
Hi everyone. Please find below the planning and resources for another week of Home Education. It's not the same as learning in school with you, but we are really enjoying putting together all the work online, and it makes our day when you send us pictures of your fabulous work and completed tasks on Purple Mash. We are so proud of each and every one of you. We are doing our best to keep the Gallery updated with all your pictures so please keep sending them to us with your lovely messages.
This week we have created a Home Education Toolkit where we will be adding open-ended tasks for you to work on whenever you choose or if you are still looking for things to do. Tasks such as Tree words, number and letter formation practise, maths vocabulary mats and phonics sound mats. These are all ongoing skills for your child to practise and get better at over time, especially while they are not in school.
As always, please get in touch if you need any support, and continue to stay in touch and let us know how you are doing.
