 "Avast Me Hearties!!"

PIRATE WEEK! 

Yo, Ho, Ho!

Mrs Coleman and I are very proud of all the work you've managed to do at home so far.

WE'RE  REALLY MISSING YOU ALL.

 

You can now e-mail me through 2email which can be found in the  Purple Mash section of this page  (RIGHT down at the bottom of the page) You'll need the log in details you were given in the pack you received from school on your last day in school. 

I'll look forward to hearing and seeing (you can attach photos and pictures)

what you've been up to. 

 

 Take a look at some of the fantastic work you've been doing at home. Send me a picture on 2email in Purple Mash, and I'll add them too our slide show. 

 

It would be really wonderful if you grown-ups could read this daily message to your child. 

It would be a great way of helping them feel connected to school and our amazing class. 

Please remember to take a look at our web page every day, as I will be updating it with lots of fun and exciting activities to keep you busy and learning new things.   

We can still be learning and having fun together, even though we’re not in school. Ms Odell.

Take a look at these daily phonics resources.

There's activities to support learning in Reception class

every day at 10 am and 11 am.

Topic activities for you to choose from this week. You can choose one or more activity a day to best suit your timetable at home, whether you’ll be going out and about or staying home.  This way, the activities will stay posted all week, and hopefully you’ll have enjoyed most or all of them by Friday. They’re very cross-curricular so take a look for ideas to help in different subjects.

SOME EXTRA LEARNING ACTIVITIES, JUST TO KEEP THINGS FRESH. IN OUR CLASS WE DO LOTS OF 'REVISITING' OR 'CONSOLIDATING' OUR LEARNING, SO THESE ACTIVITIES WILL DO JUST THAT.

 

I know that quite a few of us really LOVE DINOSAURS, so here’s a great activity on BBC Bitesize that has some great learning activities including measuring length and size (which helps us consolidate our learning from past weeks).

We’re familiar with Alphablocks in school, (found on BBC Bitesize) so take a look at some learning video’s here if you want to do your daily phonics in a different way.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Buds number garden on BBC Bitesize has some counting and ordering activities mainly to 10. Even for those of us confidently using numbers and amounts to 20 and beyond, it’s still a fun way to consolidate our knowledge of numbers to 10.

Consolidating learning on long and short. Take a look at Kit and Pup and see what they’re up to.

Grown-ups; if you're being asked some difficult questions at the moment, or would just like a little support in talking about Coronavirus and what impact that is having on us all (lockdown etc), here are two online books that may help. 

 

This book is written by a children's nurse and has friendly looking pictures.

https://nursedottybooks.com/dave-the-dog-is-worried-about-coronavirus-2/

 

This book is actually for slightly older children, but has illustrations by the man who illustrates Julia Donaldson's books such as The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom. It might not be one to 'share together'  but it might just offer adults support for how to answer any tricky questions being asked at the moment.
