Half Term!

posted 12 Feb 2021, 02:29 by Natasha Jenkinson

Massive thank you and well done to everyone who has engaged in home learning this term, we know it has not always been easy but you have all done a great job a home! 
It has been truly great to see you pictures and hear your feedback throughout the term, we are all incredibly proud of how hard you have all worked!
Enjoy a well-deserved rest this half-term and we look forward to seeing you after half term,

Children's Mental Health Awareness Week

posted 2 Feb 2021, 02:54 by Natasha Jenkinson

Good morning!

As you may be aware, this week is Children's Mental Health Awareness Week and we are especially aware of children's mental health more than ever at the moment. 

We have found a montage created for children to explore the theme 'express yourself' - it is about uderstanding feelings and different ways of expressing them! The video is about 25 minutes long, but watch in parts. You may want to keep stopping the video to discuss the ideas with your child or just watch the parts that you feel are most relevant. 
The video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zisXE4KlLAI&feature=youtu.be

If you want to share different ways that you express yourself, please add a comment and we can share ideas with our peers. I know I like to dance around in my pyjamas!

Thanks
Mrs Jenkinson

Australia Day

posted 26 Jan 2021, 08:27 by Natasha Jenkinson

Today is Australia Day - the official National Day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships and the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cov!

The day is celebrated with family gatherings, picnics, barbecues, parades and fireworks in Australia! 

I thought it would be a good idea to try some different activities, to learn more about Australia!
    - Find out about different animals that live in Australia
    - Learn about Australian landmarks ( Sydney Harbour Bridge / Ayers Rock )
    - Find Australia on a Map, how long might it take to get there
    - Colour/draw an Australian flag

Reading games

posted 21 Jan 2021, 08:35 by Natasha Jenkinson

It has been lovely to see how you have all adapted so well to the home learning and started to find your own fun ways of doing things. 

Noah and his mum had lots of fun this week by putting words that he is learning to read on the door and had to shoot them with his Nerf gun as he read them (see image). You could do this by putting words on the floor and shooting at them, or by by throwing socks at the word to read. You could play this on your own or by taking it in turns with your grown ups or siblings! 

Please share with us your fun learning games!
Thanks
Mrs Jenkinson

Phonics Play

posted 18 Jan 2021, 04:04 by Natasha Jenkinson

To support phonics at home we would like you to engage in the daily phonics set by WRI. This is exactly how we would do it at school so it would be useful to continue this so your child doesn’t fall behind and continues to make great progress. 

In addition to this, Phonic Play have lots of fun games to play to support your child’s phonics. They are offering their services for free throughout lockdown, use the link

Learning in Nature..

posted 18 Jan 2021, 03:56 by Natasha Jenkinson

Nature walks are a great way of bringing children outdoors to learn, whether it’s on the way to school, at a park or another local place of interest.

We would love you to do a senses walk while out and about on doing daily exercise! Have a look at the sheet attached for ideas of what to talk about, by becoming immersed in the environment. Think about the sounds, sights, smells and feel around you.

Please remember to share your learning through Tapestry,
Thanks
Mrs Jenkinson

Monday Morning...

posted 18 Jan 2021, 01:25 by Natasha Jenkinson

Good Morning, 

It has been so lovely to wake up this morning and see lots of lovely posts on Tapestry of you all enjoying the snow over the weekend, even if it has all disappeared now! You all look like you had such fun and enjoyed building snowmen and making snow angels!

What a great start to a Monday, 
Thanks 
Mrs Jenkinson

Snow Day Fun!

posted 14 Jan 2021, 03:38 by Natasha Jenkinson

While on your snowy walk today can you make footprint patterns in the snow?

Look at the patterns on the soles of the shoes and wellingtons, what do they look like? How will they make patterns when walking in the snow!
You can make lots of different patterns in the snow, you could stand with two feet together and then one foot, then two etc. Or you could walk around in a circle or a zig zag!

Send us in pictures of your snowy footprints and fun in the snow, we love to see what you have been up to!

You could also have a go at guessing who has left these snowy footprints!

Share a story :)
