Week of 29th June

Dear Parents / Carers,

 

Thank you for continuing with supporting your child at home with their learning. As you are aware, Home Learning is changing as more children return to school. Teachers have done a brilliant job of providing daily home learning tailored to what the children would have been covering in school; unfortunately this level of personalisation is unsustainable following the phased introduction of additional children back to school. We deliberated about how best to adapt the home learning and have decided to try using and adapting resources created by Robin Hood Multi Academy Trust in conjunction with some tailored lessons to the Topics your child would have covered during this term.

 

We understand that the Home Learning needs to work for you and your child, and therefore we have put some alternative suggestions below, should you rather explore those. We are now displaying the home learning for the week rather than each day, as feedback suggested parents would prefer this so they could rearrange the week’s tasks to fit them and their child. Please, only do what you can of the suggestions below – do what works best for you and your child.

 

With thanks to Robin Hood Multi Academy Trust for their Learning Projects on which most of the weekly Reading, Spelling, Writing and Maths tasks are based.

Reading Tasks

Phonics Tasks

Monday:

Watch the weekly story-time with Mrs Mirza: It’s Great to Work Together:

Talk to someone at home and answer the following questions:

 

  • What would you do if you were Tia?
  • How does Tia make up for not listening to others?

 

As children build their awareness of how others are reacting to them, they will find it easier to respond in an understanding way.

 

Tuesday:

Read a variety of books at home. Favourites can be repeated. Hearing the patterns of language in a story will support your child’s language development.

 

Wednesday & Thursday:

Nursery: Read to your child a simple story and ask them to retell the story to you or another family member.

  • How do you feel when others take charge during group work or games?

Creative Activity:

  • Tia, Abby and Ryan tidied up at the end of the treasure hunt. To keep things tidy at home, make your very own tidy-up toilet-roll desk organiser! You could choose to make a castle, a book-worm or perhaps a range of smiley faces! You may even decide to make something else instead!

 

During June, it is 30 Days Wild. Each week we will set you an activity to do from their suggested activities.

 

This week’s activity is:

Name that wildflower. 

When you are out for a walk, take a closer look at the flowers. Have a look at the flowers growing through the cracks, on verges and in meadows and see if you can identify them using the chart below to help you. The UK's native wildflowers are often some of the most beautiful and best for wild creatures.

 

If you want to do more, go to this Twitter account for the daily activities:
