If you need any help or want to share your learning with us, we would love to hear from you all. Remember to tweet us at ‘TheOaksCPElm’.
Don’t forget to read as much as possible!
Please continue to use Bug Club, Mathletics and Reading Wise – your login details are on your Bug Club bookmark, in your Home Learning pack and inside your Reading Record.
If you find yourself in isolation, this would be an excellent opportunity for your child to learn new skills for example tying shoe laces, clicking your fingers, whistling, independently fastening their coat/buttons.
As well as the work provided, your child has logins to various online resources which can help and support their learning. Details of these are below and logins can be located on the back of your child’s timetable, in their reading record and on their Bug Club bookmark.
Currently we do not know how long school will remain closed but we hope be back to normal soon, depending on when the government lift School restrictions.
May I take the opportunity to wish you all well and I look forward to seeing you all healthy and happy very soon!
Miss H Elson
|Mathletics; when you login you can access different areas of learning and there are various activities linked to that specific area.
Bug Club; your child can access a wide range of books that are at your child’s reading level. They can read for pleasure and then take fun quizzes to earn rewards.
Reading Wise; this is a phonics resource that will help recap and embed phonics sounds they have been taught. It also helps children to blend sounds and support reading.
In English the children will be focusing on ‘Stone Soup’ retold by Julia Damassa. The children will be developing their understanding of traditional tales and story language and using this to write their own traditional tales and instruction texts.
Suggestions of activities and tasks to be completed in the home learning pack will be uploaded here daily.
Please continue to read daily with your child. This can be their school reading book, books from home and using their Bug Club login. Encourage your child to read known words without sounding them out and, when needed, to sound out words in their head then read aloud (known as ‘Fred in your head’).
Two Phonics lessons will be uploaded here daily. Each of these lessons follows the known Read Write Inc. format, using ‘My Turn, Your Turn’ and children should be encouraged to join in verbally. After watching each video, children must locate the pages for the sound in both of their phonics booklets. Using these pages children will read both real and nonsense words containing the sound.
Children can then login to Reading Wise and continue their phonics reading. This will support the progress of their reading, which is a whole school focus for this school year.
Please continue to use your phonics flash cards. There are some good games available at https://monsterphonics.com/games/
The children will complete the measuring unit by measuring weight and volume. They will then use this in problem solving.
Suggestions of practical activities and pages to complete in the home learning pack will be uploaded here daily.
Please support your child’s maths knowledge by counting in multiples of 2, 5 and 10. Encourage your child to count forwards and backwards from any number in 1s, including across 100 and to read and write numbers to 100 in numerals.
It is important that children remain active during this time. This could include going for a walk, riding a bike, skipping, throwing and catching, Just Dance and yoga for kids. The Body Coach, Joe Wicks has announced he will host daily, live PE lessons on his YouTube at 9am.
