Please find below a link to our virtual phonics parent workshop next Monday 28th September at 4 pm.
This is where you will find out lots of useful information about all the learning fun we are having in Reception/Year 1.
In the case of local lockdown in Reception/Year 1 our home learning will be put onto the website, emailed to you each day and personalised learning will be put onto Tapestry when appropriate. Each day we will be setting some activities for your child to do. There will be a phonics activity, and one or two other activities, linked to either maths, literacy, RE or topic. Some of the activities might be a longer term project. As your child completes the activity, please add a comment, a photo or a video to their Tapestry account. Try to do this for as many of the activities as possible. If you have any problems in doing this, please email Mrs Parry-Jones firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please don't worry about the "teaching" element of home learning. Your child will benefit from just spending time with you. Play a board game, do the washing up, get involved in chores around the house, bake cakes, dance in the kitchen. Remember that children in Reception do most of their learning through play, so PLAY, PLAY, PLAY. Also give them time alone, some screen time and ask them to tell you a story. Don't worry if they say they are bored. Being bored encourages imagination!
Thank you for your support and our very best wishes to you all
Mrs Parry-Jones and the rest of the Reception team.
