Kittiwakes Week 4: 25th Jan '21

Week 4
 
Welcome to Week 4 of our Spring Term Home Learning.  Now that we have our live lessons up and running, you will notice some changes to the way some of our learning has been presented, so please do have a careful look through everything.  This page will be updated weekly with a range of activities, and all of the learning will be follow the same progression as we would have been following in school, so that your child does not need to miss out while they are learning at home with you.
 
This half term, our topic is 'Once Upon a Time', and I will include the Knowledge Organiser for this at the start of each week's learning.  This document provides an overview of the knowledge and vocabulary that the children will be developing over the coming weeks, and the activities that I provide each week will give you everything you need for supporting your child's learning. 
 
Every day there are two video sessions for you to access with your child, one for their daily RWI Phonics session, and one for their White Rose Maths.  Links for these are underneath each day of the week below. 
 
Read Write Inc Phonics  Your child only needs to watch the Set 1 Speed Sounds, Word Time and Spelling film every day.  
 
White Rose Maths  This week the children will be starting a new unit called 'Growing 6,7,8'.
 
Along with these recorded lessons, we are now delivering our daily live lessons.  You can join these via MS Teams. Information about the content of each of these live sessions will be given underneath each day below, along with the time of each session (please note that these might be subject to change, so keep an eye on Dojo for any announcements).  Should your child be unable to attend these sessions, they will be recorded and available for later viewing.  
 
In addition to these daily sessions, each week I will upload a Learning Grid which will include a range of activities, including Maths, Reading, Writing, Phonics and other topic related activities that you can complete at home.  These activities are designed to be completed at a pace that suits you across the week, so you can pick two or three different subject areas each day to have a go at.  In Early Years it is very common for children to select the same activity several times, so please don't hesitate to revisit anything that has worked particularly well for you and your child.  At this age, knowledge and skills are embedded largely through play and repetition, so if they want to do some things several times, this is all perfectly acceptable!
  
For reading books, please login to Oxford Owl for School, logging in as a Student using the following details:

On this page you can select Read Write Inc from the reading scheme menu, and a shelf of ebooks will appear.  During the previous lockdown, the selection of books available was extended to support home reading, so hopefully this will be the case this time, too.  For now, please contact me via Dojo for advice on which book to select to match your child's current levels.
 
As always,  if you have any questions or need any support with the activities here, please do message me via Class Dojo.  Do keep an eye on Dojo messages and on this page, for news and updates about our online provision.
 
Take care, and stay safe
