HOME LEARNING

 

6th May 2020

Hi Robins, Welcome to the Summer term!                                 

Thank you for all the lovely learning you have shared with me using videos, photos, on Tapestry and through email. Lots of you have joined in the challenges I have put on Tapestry, from the chicken maths challenges; the den building challenge; the sock addition and doubling challenge; the egg challenge involving addition, subtraction, halving and doubling; to the writing challenges, linked to phonics, story writing, letters and speech bubbles. I gave you these after reading Elmer’s Special Day and The Day the Crayons Quit. It is great to see lots of you have been using Purple Mash. I have put some 2Dos in our class folder, if you want to try this next time you log on. Then, save them and I can go on and see your learning. You may already have done some of them.

I have sent some new web links to be put on the class page, on the website. White Rose web site along with some of the others have daily maths sessions.

Your parents have given you some amazingly creative learning opportunities and your learning gave me ideas for my den building and Elmer activities. It has been great to speak to some of you on the phone and see your brothers and sisters learning with you. Joy has really enjoyed seeing photos of her preschool children learning at home. You have been doing so much out door learning, Mrs West would be proud of you.

There will be plenty of new challenges coming along on tapestry, so keep your eyes open!

 

What’s Ms Pawson been doing?

I have been cooking lots of lovely dishes as my chef (my husband) is in Wales with his mum! I have been looking after my chickens, making new flower beds for my garden and planting bulbs and trees in them. I have planted a lilac tree in the chicken run, so as it grows bigger, the chickens will have more shade in the summer. I have been trying to make my own compost for next year, in the barrels and planting my strawberries, in the strawberry planters. I have cleared and sorted the sheds and re located my wormery, which I have been adding food waste to and draining the plant food they produce. I have had fun decorating my chicken run with bunting I got last Summer. I have been trying to keep on with my running, it has been very hard to motivate myself!! I am going on some lovely walks from my home and of course building maths dens in the garden! Using my skills of how to attach different materials by mending the old greenhouse!!

Stay safe Robins and keep those videos and photos coming!

 

 

                                                                                          

A message from Mrs Bailey

 

Hello Children,

 

I hope you are all keeping well and are able to do plenty of activities at home.

I've been spending time doing some of the things I enjoy such as gardening, cooking, walking and reading.

It's been lovely to see some of you when I've been out for a walk.

These pictures are from a walk to  Lulworth Cove and over Bindon Hill. 

In the duck pond I could see the ducklings are thriving. 

On top of Bindon hill the beautiful cowslips were abundant and a skylark was singing and hovering, probably to draw me away from its nest which must have been in the grass nearby. 

As well as the wonderful views along the coast, I saw four huge ships in Weymouth bay (they looked a lot bigger than they appear in my photograph)!

I am looking forward to us all seeing each other in school again and finding out about the things you have been doing in our time away,

 

Very Best Wishes from Miss Bailey

Welcome to Robins Class (Reception). Ms Pawson is the class teacher and we are supported by Mrs Winch and Mrs Bailey our Winfrith Site TAs.

We welcome parents and family members into Robins class on Friday mornings from 8:45-9:00 to share the children’s learning. This is a great opportunity to find out what your child has been learning about and look at their books, photos, Learning Journey’s and class displays.

 

In the Autumn term, Robins enjoyed the topics Wonderful Me and Let’s Celebrate.  The children loved spending time in the role play area, when it was a home, a campsite, a hospital, a witch’s house and a Christmas wonderland!  The children settled well into school routines and have enjoyed exploring all the learning opportunities in the classroom with their friends. They made new friends and relationships and showed great resilience and courage, when tackling new experiences. The children worked hard to prepare for their Christmas Nativity and the performance of Christmas With The Aliens at St Christopher’s Church Winfrith was a great success.

 

P.E.

Your child will have P.E. lessons on Wednesday morning every week and another hall session during the week on Tuesday. Please can the children have their kit in school every day (school PE shirt and shorts, socks and trainers, tracksuits for outside) as there may be chances throughout the week to participate in sports activities both inside and outside. Please remember that long hair needs to be tied up and ear-rings removed.

 

Outdoor Learning

Outdoor Learning sessions take place on a regular cycle.  These Sessions are led by Miss West our Forest Schools teacher.  The children will enjoy sessions in the school ground, local walks and visits to the local heath, woods and coast.  Please ensure you child has a pair of wellies and coat in school. Robins have this session each week with Ms Pawson, to develop the learning they have done with Mrs West.

 

Water and snacks

Children are provided with their own cup and have access to water all day. Free fruit is provided and children can bring their own healthy fruit snack if they prefer. Children who are four have free milk. When you child turns five, if you want them to continue to have milk, please contact the office.

 

Home Learning

Home Learning folders will be sent home on a Friday and are due in on the following Wednesday. The home learning task consolidates the learning taking place in school.  It could have Maths, English or Topic focus. 

 

Reading/Phonics

 Children have the phase 2 phonics, numbers to 9 and word boxes to practice blending sounds to read words. They may get phase 2 and 3 key words in their folders later in the Spring Term.

 

Reading

Reading books are changed on a Monday.  There are other opportunities for books to be changed as needed if they have been read with an adult.  The children take part in in a daily phonics session and games linked to the sounds we are learning. Reading at home aloud to an adult is very important for developing their fluency, vocabulary and comprehension skills.  Please can your child read at home as often as possible and can this be recorded in their Reading Diary.
