HOME LEARNING

 

 

                                                                                           Dear Children and Carers,

I hope you are enjoying the sun shine and using your outdoor space to explore and investigate.

I may not be seeing you for a while, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share our adventures and learning together. I have seen some wonderful photos on Tapestry of your learning journeys from this week. I shall try to post some new ideas or links that could help you learn creatively at home.

Please send us your photos of anything you draw, write, create, paint, build, plant, read, play or do. All this can be added to your learning journey on Tapestry. You could email this to school to be put on the class page on the website, if you are happy for us to do this. I miss not seeing most of you all at school. If there is anything learning related you would like to ask, email us please or put this query on Tapestry – also with any exciting news you want to share!

I am busy at school two days a week and I am learning and working from home on the other three days. I am trying to keep up my outdoor learning by gardening (like some of you!), looking after the chickens, walking and running in the fields outside my house. When it rains, I have found some good video dance work outs to try or there is always Jo Wicks workouts!

Remember to be kind to yourself and your families and as a friend of mine said “Put your positive pants on” (I chose a rainbow of colours for mine!), relax and enjoy your home learning. Creative and outdoor play is an essential part of our learning in Robins. I can’t wait to see more of your home learning on tapestry.

Keep safe and keep in contact. Robins launch themselves into flight, because they know their wings will support them as they fly. So, my Robins, be brave, bold and courageous like these small but assertive birds. Spread your wings and learn!

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.
