This is advisory information that will support you while your child is accessing learning from home.
Start of the day – what I need to know and do
School starts here at 8.45 we start with welcome, home news and class rules.
This is our general timetable in EYFS and KS1 (see next page)
It would be helpful if you are to stay as close to the timetable as you can – this will help to keep routine. We do maths and English each morning and our usual lessons on an afternoon. Remember to stick to normal breaks each morning and at lunch times, do not give yourself longer.
When your bubble burst you will have been provided with 2 weeks’ worth of work, you are expected to complete as many of the tasks as possible. These work packs can be supplemented by reading with your child, nature walks, cooking, and art craft activities. There are also some online platforms such as Read write Inc, CBBC, Top marks. Feel free to supplement this with other appropriate online learning opportunities.
On a Friday morning we would usually have PE, so do something active, this might be a Jump Start Johnny or other YouTube workout, or you might play in the garden, as long as you are moving and being active it is your choice what you do.
Feel free to do cooking one afternoon anything you like, take photos and email them to your teacher.
We regularly access ICT and use it as an information source (internet) or to write (word) or paint. You might want to create a power point to evidence what you have been doing with your child. (play stations and Xboxes do not count as ICT remember)
Wednesday afternoons we usually do mindfulness so maybe find a guided meditation on our school website or on YouTube, have a relaxing hour doing something that you enjoy.
When you take photos of your child doing choice time and any other tasks it would be lovely if you are able to send them to your teacher, we will create a ‘Home Learning’ display in school to share everything you have achieved whilst our bubble was at home.
Try and do some phonics / reading each day. You can access Read Write Inc phonics and reading activities on line through their site. https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/programmes/phonics/
Your Teacher/Teaching Assistant will be in touch with you each day to make sure you know what you should be doing each day, make sure you ask them any questions you have! You can also email your class teacher to send them work or to ask them any questions you have.
