Home Learning

13/7/20

Hi Willows,

 

How lovely it was to see you at our Teams meeting this week.  A massive thank you to all the parents with keeping your patience whilst we made sure everyone got their turn!   This week, we thought it would be nice for the children to bring one - just one!- thing they would like to show their friend.  It could be a toy or their pet or a drawing. 

 

Usually these last few weeks, we concentrate on transition.  So, this week our home learning is going to encourage your child to reflect...to think about the fun they had in year R and share their thoughts and feelings about year one. 

We will be sending your child a social story to share with you called 'Enjoying year one'.

Keep an eye out on the 'All Classes' page on the website too. Over the next few days we will be putting a 'Welcome to year 1' video on for you to enjoy. 

 

This weeks home learning includes:

-home learning document

-handwriting formations

 

Towards the end of the week, we hope to send you a sheet of year R spellings which you may choose to work on.

 

Hope you are enjoying the lovely sunshine,

Take care

Willow Team smiley

 

 

 

 

6th July

Hello Willows

We hope you are all well and have managed to have some fun outside. 

 

We are so very proud of all of you over this long strange time when we haven't all been able to be together, and the resilience you have all had to show by keeping focused with your learning either at home or in school, You should feel very proud of yourselves and all you have been able to achieve. A huge thank you to the parents too, we recognise it has not been easy. Keep that resilience going, don't give up just yet, there are only two more weeks to go before the summer holiday! Next week's learning will be slimmed down as it's the last week with some time to reflect on this year and on going into Year 1.

 

As usual, this week we have attached the 'home learning' and 'catch up phonics'. The children have been enjoying the same learning in school as is being offered to you all at home. Remember, if you would like to share any of your learning with us, please put it onto Tapestry and we will enjoy looking at it. There are a few OPTIONAL 2Dos on Purple Mash for those of you who would like these. Mrs Doman has also added a new story this week. Please do not hesitate to email Willow Home Learning if you have any questions. Also remember to keep checking the latest school updates from the letters emailed out from Mrs Jones. 

 

We look forward to speaking with those of you who will be joining us for the 'Teams get together' this Wednesday at 11.00. Fingers crossed it works for us all. Please remember to press 'mute' when your child is not talking to help reduce background noise, this will give us chance to hear each other. 

 

Have a great week. 

Take care, 

Willow Team

 

Transition to year one!

This is a video for parents of Mrs Burt explaining the transition to year one in our school.

Hello all Willows

 

Hope you have had a lovely week and have enjoyed the hot weather.

 

In school, we are working hard to learn new ways of working virtually. (steep learning curve for us!!surprise)  Soon, we are hoping to do a class 'hello' using Microsoft Teams.  This is exciting as it will be so lovely for all the children to see each other once again.

 

We have included some catch up phonics if you are concerned about your child's phonics.

When using the phonics lessons - please feel free to pause when your child needs time to think and at other times skip through the clip - this is also what we do in school!

 

We have added some extra stories too! Scroll up...

 

This week:

-Overview of learning

-Phonic catch up

 

Speak soon, stay safe

Hi all Willows

 

We hope you are ok and that you have had some time outside, as there has been a little more sunshine!

Our small Willow School Bubble has run well this week and we are so proud of how the children are following the Health and Safety guidelines each day. We would like to thank all the families for your continued support with these guidelines.  We look forward to welcoming a few more to the bubble on Monday. 

It has been lovely over the past few weeks to catch up with all of you at home. We will keep making contact with those of you who are at home over the coming weeks. Please remember that if you would like to contact us for any reason you can use the Willow Home Learning email and we will reply asap. 

 

Phonics

Just to remind you that we changed the phonics home learning last week  and we would like the children to benefit from a daily phonics lesson delivered by a teacher via YouTube.  It is the same 'Letters and Sounds' programme that we use in school.  Our 'Willow Bubble' have really taken to the lessons each day in school. Phonics is a vital part of the year R curriculum which helps the children learn to read and write.  

 

The list of lessons we would like you to follow is on our learning overview, but we have also planned for a 'catch up' phonic programme which your child can follow if you are concerned about your child's reading and writing. See sheet below named....'CATCH UP PHONICS - sequence of lessons'. 

(If you are unsure what lesson/catch up your child needs - please feel free to email Willow Learning and we will try our best to support you.)

 

This weeks learning:

- learning overview

- 'CATCH UP PHONICS' - sequence of lessons'

- label Zog

- Zog speech bubble

 

We hope the children are continuing to read and write frequently. This is a chance to put the phonics learning in to practice! 

We also hope your child is finding the 'White Rose Maths' fun. Our Willow Bubble are taking part in these lessons every day, enjoying the different maths aspects the lessons cover. 

 

Are enjoying the story time element to our page? ….Mrs Doman, Mrs Roper, Mr Toomer and Mrs Bowen have read a story for you this week.

Take care of yourselves....missing you,

Willow Team smiley

Hi all Willows

 

Hope you are ok and managing to dodge the showers!  surprise

Our small Willow School Bubble began this week and we would like to say thank you to all the families who followed the Health and Safety guidelines.  Also, it was great to make contact with those of you who are at home.  We still have a couple of families to catch up with next week!

 

A slight change....to phonics!

We are changing our phonic learning this week - we would like the children to benefit from doing a daily phonic lesson via utube.  It follows the same programme, 'Letters and Sounds' that we use in school.  Phonics is a vital part of the year R curriculum which helps the children learn to read and write.  These lessons are delivered by a teacher

We have listed the lessons we would like you to follow in our learning overview, but we have also planned for a 'catch up' phonic programme which your child can follow if you are concerned about your child's reading and writing. See sheet below named....'CATCH UP PHONICS - sequence of lessons'. 

(If you are unsure what lesson/catch up your child needs - please feel free to email Willow Learning and we will try our best to support you.)

 

This weeks learning:

-learning overview

-'CATCH UP PHONICS - sequence of lessons'

-I spy and read sheet (please do as little or as much as you need)

Hi all

 

Hope you have enjoyed the bank holiday as best as you could!

 

It has been a pleasure to see so many of you on e-mail and Tapestry  - very special to see all the lovely things you are doing at home.  Please don't feel any pressure to put things on - only if you can get to it!

 

 

Here is this weeks learning.  We have included:

-learning plan for the wk

-phase 4 words - these are just lots of examples of words we would usually be reading and making with the children. 

-sound tiles

 

We hope to be ringing you all in Willow Class sometime this week.

Look after yourselves and stay safe,

Willow Team

4.5.20

 

Hi Willows

 

Hope you are all ok and getting some fresh air!  Did you get a chance to look at our staff message?

We have put together some suggested learning for this week, but remember it is only 4 days of learning as Friday is a bank holiday to celebrate VE day!

Phonics:

We are moving onto 5 sounds now! ….but keep practising with 4 if this is what your child needs.  It is important they are confident with 4 sounds before moving onto 5.  Don't push them on if they are not secure with 4 sounds.  We have included an extra sound tile 4 sounds if your child still needs this!

 

To help you with this weeks learning we have included:

-page of learning suggestions, including Oak Academy Learning

-sound tiles to support phase 4 phonics (5 sounds)

-sound tiles to support phase 4 phonics (4 sounds - if they still need to embed this skill)

-phase 4 reading game - 'yes or no' - to print out, cut up and play - this is a game we play in school on Interactive Whiteboard.

We also wanted to let you know about online phonic lessons on utube….

 

These are particularly good for children who are still learning and remembering the diagraph and trigraph sounds of phase 3.  They would be good for the children who still need help to write words with these sounds in like moon, light, tree etc.

 

Just type into google 'Letters and Sounds for home and school' and it will take you to many lessons!  Make sure you click on 'reception' lesson.

-sound tiles for phase 4 words

Afternoon Willows,

As we approach Easter, I noticed a fun number story and suggested learning opportunities with eggs on the White Rose Home learning website!

You will need the story link and some chocolate eggs - yum!

 

I have copied a link to get you to the story and the second link is the learning possibilities....I thought they looked quite manageable! MAKE SURE YOU CLICK ON WK 1.

 

Speak soon smiley

 

Tuesday 31st March

Good morning Willow.

We hope you have been able to get out in your garden and enjoy the sunshine.  It has been lovely to see some of your completed work from the '2Dos' on Purple Mash. Where possible, we have made a comment about work we have received, so please take a look. We have put a few examples of children's Purple Mash learning on the 'Display Board' which can be found under 'Sharing' on the home page. It would also be lovely if your child could use the Purple Mash Blog to send a message to their class friends, They can find this under 'Sharing' on the home page, then 'Shared Blogs', 'Willow Class Blog'. We will check and authorise these before they are posted for all to see, so please don't expect it to appear immediately.

 

Our focus over these last two weeks has been chicks, the farm, Easter and new life (see learning previously attached on 20/03/20 under home learning below and the 2Dos set through Purple Mash). There are a few new '2Dos' on Purple Mash to be completed, so please check your 2Dos. Could you all also go into 'Mini Mash' and explore the 'pins' that have been set up about 'Farms', 'Chicks' and 'Easter'  As 'Mini Mash' tasks cannot be set as '2Dos' please see the attached Word document dated Tuesday 31st March, with instructions on how to access these through Purple Mash. We look forward to seeing some of this learning saved in the Mini Mash 'farm' tray, particulary the farmer Mashcam!  Instructions on how to save into a tray are also on the attached Word document.

 

Please also continue with the learning detailed on the 'Home Learning Guidance' dated 20/03/20 which supports your child's learning through tasks not set on Purple Mash. Remember to do some daily phonics (using the link below), some maths and to try and write everyday (as per home learning guidance). It would be lovely to see some photographs of this learning on Tapestry. We have enjoyed seeing some of the learning and comments you have already put onto Tapestry. Thank you.

 

Thank you also for the emails we have already received through our new 'Willow Home learning' (see link above).  It has been a real delight to see all the 'other' learning that has taken place at home, so please keep these coming. It helps cheer us up as we love to find out about what you have been up to. Please remember, you can use this email address if you need some help or guidance on the home learning too.

 

We are missing all being together. We hope that you and your family are keeping safe and like us that you are also enjoying some extra family time together that we don't usually get!

The Willow Team

 

 

  

26/3/20

Hi Willows,

It has been lovely to see some of the Tapestry photos and videos of the children this week...we do miss you all!

We have enjoyed seeing some of the Purple Mash activities too.

 

To promote and remember our phonics learning this year, we would like the children to watch some of the phase 3 phonic Bitesize clips on the internet - these clips are fun and only take a minute to watch.  If you press the arrow - it will take you to a quiz about that sound to reinforce the learning.  Maybe do one a day!  (see link below) 

25/3/20

Hello all smiley

 

Thought this looked like fun!   '20 vegetables you can grow from scraps!'

You could test out re-growth from scraps and then observe the progress over time....maybe record changes through video diary, photo or drawings and labels.

Spread some joy!

If you are feeling creative - lots of children are painting/drawing rainbows and displaying them in their windows of their homes to cheer up people who are walking by!  If you go for a walk - how many rainbows can you spot?

Hi everyone,

Hope you are keeping well and have enjoyed the sunshine today. 

We have been attempting the Joe Wicks PE challenge from 9-9.30 with our own children at home.  It was tiring, but fun and a great way to start the day for the whole family.  Some of the moves could be quite challenging for the little ones - but even if they attempt it and keep moving, it will keep them active.

22/03/20

Your children have been amazing during this last week and we have seen some lovely collaborative play and learning. We've had obstacle courses, castles, rockets, pirate ships and peacocks being created, along with flags, signs and story books being written. It has been wonderful to see how their confidence and independence has really shone through. We've been so proud of them.

 

Over the next few weeks, we are sure you and your child will have fun as you carry on their learning at  home. Please look at the home learning guidance below and the letter enclosed in your home learning pack for how you can help your child with the activities we have set. Supporting resources are also found on this class page. It is intended that these activities will be carried out over the next few weeks and that we will change them over time, so please keep checking this page for updates.

 

Some of your child's learning will also be through 'Purple Mash'. Please log on to Purple Mash and look at the '2Dos' which you will be able to access on the home page. The first activities set have been detailed on the home learning guidance; so that your child knows what to do. We will update these 2Dos over the course of time while the school is closed.

There are plenty of additional learning activities that can be found on 'Mini Mash', which the children can do for fun.

 

We have not 'set a timetable' as we would like you to complete the tasks in a relaxed way which suits you and your child.The home learnng guidance, 2Dos on Purple Mash and the letter enclosed in your home learning packs are activities we would really expect your child to do. The other additional learning activities are optional but recommended. Please read with your child regularly (at least 4 times a week if possible) and read to your child discussing the book and vocabulary. It is important for your child's continued progress to do the suggested 'Daily Phonics' activities (daily) and to write a sentence / caption at least 4 times a week, applying phase 2 and 3 phonics and spellings of tricky words. We would also encourage daily counting, addition, subtraction, pattern etc in a practical way (see home learning guidance) to help maintain their mathematical skills.

 

We have also set up a class blog on Purple Mash so that your child can keep in contact with their class friends whilst we are all away from school and each other. You can support your child to decide on what they would like to say and to find the keys on the keyboard so that they can type a little message. All blogs will be read first by ourselves before they are posted.

To access the Willow Class Blog, log on to Purple Mash. Click on 'Sharing' then 'Shared Blogs'. You will see 'Willow Class Blogs'.Click on this and you will be able to read any Blogs which have been posted and approved by the teachers.Your child can add their own blog for the teacher and class to see by clicking on the 'green +' tab. A box will then appear where your child can add a fun title, summary and message. Remember to save the post! We look forward to keeping contact with you all. Happy Blogging!

 

We hope you all enjoy the learning and time spent together. There are further suggestions about fun things you can do at home on the 'Home Learning Support' document. Please do have fun, making this a special time and remember to enjoy books and relaxed time together every day!

Keep safe

The Willow Team

White Rose Hub Maths  https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

As a school, we use 'White Rose Maths' activities to support and enhance our maths planning. The White Rose Hub are putting together home learning resources; including worksheets, video guides and answers, for each year group. EYFS will continue to be updated. There is currently a great Easter egg hunt activity on there (which can be changed to any 'hunt' game, e.g cut up  wool (wooly worms), pieces of ribbon, socks, etc. to encourage learning about size, ordering, sorting, addition and subraction. Your child  can use pictures and numbers to record your workings in your home learning book. NB:  We are not expecting to see number sentences (sums) at this stage. A photo added to their home learning book or to Tapestry will be lovely to see. but not an expectton.

Please keep checking back onto 'White Rose Hub Maths; as more wil be added, weekly for home learning.
