Welcome to the Summer term!
This term will certainly be different to any we have had before! I would like to thank all the parents and guardians for their continued hard work and support through this difficult time. You have been doing some amazing things to support your child’s learning, but please remember: do not panic too much about home learning; the health and wellbeing of your family is most important during this time. If you need any help or support please contact me through Dojo messages or leave a message with the school office.
We will continue to post activities online onto Class Dojo, so please check there for any updates.
In phonics, we will be watching the daily Read Write Inc videos, which are streamed on their Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ). Please encourage your child to join in with Rosie as much as possible. The children should be watching set 2 and 3 videos.
For literacy, we will continue to develop our reading and writing skills in line with the Year 1 curriculum. We will also be using our ‘word of the day’ to improve our vocabulary. An improved vocabulary is really important to children’s learning because it helps them make more sense of the world and improves their understanding across all subjects.
In Maths, we will continue to follow the White Rose maths scheme (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/) and support this with optional videos and activities from BBC Bitesize (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons).
Additional activities for foundation subjects will be posted daily not Dojo, so please look out for those too. These activities are all based on the Year 1 curriculum for science, history, geography, art, D&T, RE, computing and PSHE.
Thank you for sharing all the work that is being posted onto class Dojo, it is really great to see.
Stay home and keep safe,
Miss Saddow and Miss Ryan
