Together We Can Achieve Excellence

Learning at Home

Learning at home is very important for the children to embed the skills that they are learning at school and also to build their understanding of the world and language skills. These will be developed by providing out of school experiences for your children and engaging in conversations about a wide range of subject.

Learning at Home

October 2020

Dear Parents

Please refer to the home learning grid in Year 1 books and which is also attached at the bottom of this page.

It has links (starred in red) to online lessons from the Oak National Academy to support learning whilst at home in line with our current subject themes at school.

There are also activities which do not require the use of a computer or tablet, for your child to complete.

Please use Tapestry to upload and share any work or observations that are happening at home. This can be at any moment that you capture some amazing learning, not just during our school closures.

 

IN AN EVENT OF A 2 WEEK SCHOOL CLOSURE,  PLEASE REFER TO THE TABS ON THE RIGHT (ENGLISH, MATHS, PHONICS) FOR REMOTE LEARNING LINKS AND ACTIVITIES.

 

IF YOU ARE SELF-ISOLATING AND WELL ENOUGH TO COMPLETE WORK, PLEASE USE THE HOME LEARNING GRID ATTACHED BELOW.

Please contact school should you need any further guidance or have any questions. 

 

 

Homework

Reception homework is to read their reading books and practise their phonics and key words at home each day.

The children in year one will be set homework covering the topic and can hand in their books every Tuesday for an adult to check. Spellings and phonics will be added weekly.

All homework should be completed in pencil and should be your child’s best work.

We are teaching a cursive handwriting style in school and an example of how to form the 'pre-cursive' letters is in the front of the homework book. Please encourage your child to practise these when they are writing.

Phonics Screening (Year 1)

This year all of the children in year one will be taking a statutory phonics screening check. This check will take place nationally in the week commencing 10th June 2019. The check will involve the children reading a range of real and non-words using their phonics up to phase 5 and will take 5-10 minutes to complete. It will be administered in a quiet room with their teacher. The check will help to identify children who may need additional support with their phonics next year and these children will have the opportunity to be checked again in year 2. Results of the check will be reported to parents in the summer term. There are some resources to support attached below.
