Robins

Home Learning

 

Miss Healy has been so impressed with the volume of pictures of the children working at home. For some of the children they think they are the only family at home and it is incredibly hard concept for them to realise that we are all learning at home. Please also reassure them that all the staff are ok too. 

 

The home pack has lots of ideas in and we are celebrating all their work you send in by looking through it and publishing it on our secure online classroom. Please ensure if you send photos via the dedicated email account robinsreception2020@gmail.com or simply upload them onto the google classroom. 

 

Please do not feel pressured into doing lots of 'work' with your child. Reading books to them and encouraging them to read is brilliant. They also need to have times where they are bored and not have an adult entertaining them. This is not a time to start causing more stress for us adults in a time of uncertainty. 

 

What is important is to pause for at least an hour a day to be just with your child, no phones, no tv and think of something to play together that you know they will enjoy. This will give you a boast of happiness (endorphins) listening to your child chat and laugh which is what we all need and deserve.

 

The activities we have set up are just ideas and there are plenty of people flooding the internet with home learning ideas. Please be kind to yourselves and do what you can. The main point is to have a routine where you make sure your child can give you time to yourself and them time to their selves as well as giving them an education at home.

Children are motivated in different ways and we know your children so well, we know some children will not be keen to sit down and learn to write, but will be much happier making a mud pie. THIS IS OK! (As long as you are ok with the mess and it is not breakfast in bed for mummy/daddy!).

 

Over the next coming days we will start uploading videos of us reading stories, these are to reassure your little learners they are not the only ones at home and their teachers and friends are all safe and sound until we can wash away the naughty germs that are in places where there are lots of people.

 

Keep an eye out on the Google classroom for story time and celebrations of children’s work. If you have any problems accessing Google Classroom you need to contact ICT123 team. https://123ict.co.uk/

Our topic this term is DINOSAURS! 

 

It would be great if the children could do some investigating into their favourite dinosaur. There will be plenty of opportunity to present their ideas and reasons for their favourite dinosaur in the first week back.

Term 3 Curriculum letter

Phonics

 

The children have now covered all of their phase 2 sounds.  These sounds include: 

s, a, t, p,

i, n, m, d

g, o, c, k

ck, e, u, r

h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss

 

Tricky words introduced in Phase 2:

the  

to    

I     

go

into

no

 

Alongside learning their phase 2 sounds, the children have been using their knowledge of letter sounds to blend and sound out words. For example, blending the sounds t-a-p to make the word tap. We have also been learning how to segment words. For example, the children may be asked to find the letter sounds that make the word sat. When segmenting, they are encouraged to use their phoneme fingers to help them identify the number of sounds in a word. 

 

This term we will begin learning phase 3 sounds, these will be introduced in the following order: 

j, v, w, x

y, z, zz, qu

ch, sh, th, ng

ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er

 

Tricky words introduced in Phase 3:

we 

me

be

he

she

was

my

you

they

her

all

are

 

This term we will also be looking more closely at the letter names, in addition to the letter sounds. As always, all new sounds the children learn in class will be added into their reading folders as sound cards to practise at home.

 

How can you support your child at home?

  • Share books and comics with your child - Read their favourites over and over again!

  • Listen to your child read.

  • Join the library and explore the world of books.

  • Listen to audio books.

  • Let children see you as a reader!

  • Practise reading and writing the sounds they have been taught and encourage them to apply these to everyday activities, e.g. writing shopping lists, notes, cards etc.

Reading at home

 

Please continue to read with your child at home. It is important to make sure your child enjoys the reading at home with you and it does not become a chore. Please speak to me if you are having any reluctance at home. 

 

Children need to bring in their reading folders each day. Please ensure that each time your child reads it is written in their reading record book as all reads count towards their reading certificates. Last term many children worked hard to achieve their bronze and silver reading awards! Well done smiley
