Kittiwakes Week 6: 8th Feb '21

Week 6
 
Welcome to the final week of the first half of the Spring Term.  This week's home learning is laid out for you below in the usual way.  Thank you for your engagement with our daily live lessons, which provide me with an essential point of contact with your children for monitoring their progress with the tasks that we complete together.  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 recorded 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 continuing with their 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 contact me for information about logging in to Oxford Owl for a range of online ebooks.
 
As always,  if you have any questions or need any support with the activities here, please 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
