EYFS 

 

In EYFS, home learning will be added to Seesaw and the school website by the Sunday evening of the coming week. The work added will be based around a text and will include activities for all 7 areas of the EYFS curriculum, these activities should take no more than 15 - 20 minutes. Children will also have access to a fun learning grid to support their development through play based activities. Each week we will send out a timetable of when adults will be adding videos to support the learning at home. 

 

Children will continue to have access to Bug Club and Num Bots. 

 

Please message us on Seesaw to let us know how you are getting on or if you need any additional help.

Unit 1 (Year 1 and 2)

In Unit 1, class teachers will post daily tasks on Seesaw and the school website by 7pm the night before. Please note, this will not happen over the two weeks of Easter break.

 

The uploads will include a spelling task, Maths, English and Reading (to supplement Bug Club) to be completed in any order but this is the same order we would complete them in school and for many children this structure would be supportive.

For curriculum subjects, please select a task of your choice on the Curriculum grid attached below.

 

UPDATE: If you log into your Bug Club active learn account now you will find some science, grammar and spelling activities you can complete to supplement/as an alternative to those submitted below.

 

Please message us to let us know how you're getting on or if you need any additional help with any of the tasks.  

 

Take care and thank you for your continued support. 

Mr Stephens, Miss Emmerton, Mrs Parker and Mrs Bell.

ACCELERATED READER 

We have now set up Accelerated Reader so that Quizzes may be taken at home with this link: 

https://ukhosted53.renlearn.co.uk/2236363

Children are not able to complete Star Tests at home but can quiz on an AR book they have read. 

A further range of books are available to read online from the website https://readon.myon.co.uk/ - many of these books have an AR Quiz attached - a good opportunity for some Non-Fiction reading too. 

Children should have their usernames and passwords written in their Reading Records. 

Family Support (ELSA)

A great website for support on a range of areas, including: mental health, managing emotions, friendships, bereavement, daily routines and much more!

Gatehouse "Dance Monkey" Video Clip

To make you smile (and probably roll around laughing with our dancing skills!), please see attached Gatehouse's version of 'Dance Monkey'. Some scenes are linked to the original video, just in case you are wondering why Mrs Naldrett is sat in a chair (doing mum dancing!) and some members of staff are dressed as golfers!

The staff that were in school today, for their daily exercise, decided to have a little fun (with social distancing) and created our very own social media style dance!

To keep you smiling, the staff that were in school today completed a short video showcasing the school in case the children are missing it! Please note that not all teachers are in their usual Units!
