Another brilliant week of home learning - you continue to impress me each day. Well done, Oak class!
This week, our wider curriculum topic of 'Under the Sea' has been great fun to explore. The children have completed lots of creative and expressive projects and used a variety of resources to do so. In phonics, we have introduced 2 new sounds from Set 2 in Read Write Inc - 'ay' and 'ee'. The children have completed lots of reading and writing tasks to deepen their understanding, and of course we have revisited previously learnt sounds daily too. In maths, we have been exploring the number 6, 7 and 8, solving problems, forming numerals and playing games.
Following lots of positive feedback from you all regarding our zoom sessions, the main outcomes were that the length of sessions were good, the children enjoy stories, sharing work and games, and overall children enjoy the meetings. Moving forward, 4 families mentioned that sharing things from home apart from school work, so maybe their favourite toy, pet or something they are proud of would be a nice addition. I am keen to keep our sessions about sharing daily work, as it gives the children a deadline to work towards and to have immediate feedback, however I think this is important too. Therefore... we are now having and extra session EVERY FRIDAY AT 2PM for SHOW and TELL! 😄 This will be lead by myself or Miss Chauhan.
See the picture of our wonderful rainbows that we created during our zoom session on Thursday on a scavenger hunt - together we identified and listed the colours of the rainbow and collected objects in our homes to create our own rainbows! Fantastic speaking and listening skills - well done Oak Class.
I just wanted to point out a few things about our home learning set up and reassure you about the fantastic learning our little ones are doing each day. Obviously play is a huge part of the curriculum, and they have adult led maths, phonics (reading and writing), physical development and handwriting each day, in addition to the grid of wider curriculum afternoon tasks. They can pick and choose based on the resources you have at home and what the children choose to do each day - this is just like the continuous provision (activities set up to engage and explore) we have in school, which form a huge part of our day.
