This Week’s Learning

Week commencing Monday 22nd February 

Welcome back Reception! We hope you all had a good half term break and are looking forward to hearing what you have been doing. Please keep sending in photos of your learning because your teachers love seeing what you have been doing at home.

We will continue to combine our literacy sessions within the story times to support learning being manageable for all. Feedback sessions on Fridays as well as PE, art and music will continue. These will all be left for you access below throughout the week. For previous weeks learning you will see links towards the bottom of the page.

Any questions please get in touch.

Reading & Phonics 

Please also keep up your daily reading at home, we will be providing a drop off library from the office so if you need a new library book then you can come and pick one up (please keep your original library book issued at home so this can be scanned back in when we are all back in school).

We also now have a book change system for levelled reading books please see emails from the office to outline how this is working. This is separate from the drop of library provided and will give you a chance every other week to have a new levelled reading book for your child.

We also encourage you to continue using Reading Eggs, Fast Phonics (and Mathletics), your logins for these are in the back of your reading records.

Oxford Owl website has many free e-books to read online including levelled e-books, you can see what level your child was on before by looking at their book given before the holidays, ask their class teacher if you need support with this. They also have a support page for phonics and the different sounds.

Oxford Owl, Story Online and Book Trust also have many videos of storytelling for children to watch and listen to as well. The CLPE has a YouTube page where you can find videos of authors reading aloud their stories.

Audible Stories are offering free audiobooks for children while schools are closed.
