Remote Learning - Reception
Our teachers are still looking after your children during this lock-down. Each week, we will contact you to check that everything is going well and to see if there is anything else we can do to help. Furthermore, they will be available through Tapestry, and Class Dojo, marking the children's work and answering questions. Please see a suggested remote learning timetable at the bottom of this page.
If children are self-isolating, there is an expectation that they still complete work daily following the timetable of their class and return ALL work through Tapestry, so that the teacher can give summary feedback about areas for improvement. If the year group bubble has to close, there is an expectation that children will move to remote learning and continue to follow their timetable.
Each week, we will provide an overview of the work being covered that week (this can also be found on our weekly newsletter on the Remote Learning home page). We will also provide live learning opportunities each week and the timetable for this can be found on the Remote Learning homepage. Please keep a look out for the links which will be posted on Tapestry and Class Dojo.
If you need to contact us at any point, you can message us on Class Dojo/MCAS or call the school office on 01472 320016.
Weeks commencing 22nd February and 1st March 2021
In Reception, we will be learning a new story - 'Old Mac's Farm' and talking about how he tries to help his cows sleep. Our new History topic is 'Important People' so we will be talking about important people at home and in school as well as other important people we might have heard of, including the Queen. We will be continuing to explore numbers between 0 and 20 in maths and focusing more on problem solving including addition and subtraction. We will delve deeper into measuring weight, length, and capacity too.
Weeks commencing 1st February and 8th February 2021
Well done to everyone completing lots of home learning and thank you to those who are sharing lots of this with us. We love looking at your photos and watching your videos - the children in school love seeing their friends!
In Reception, we are going to be learning a new story – 'Funny Bones' – as we shift away from all things dinosaur to concentrate on our science topic 'Our Bodies'. We have lots of exciting activities planned for you to have try at home which will see you getting your body moving and thinking about how to keep it healthy and strong! In maths, we will continue to explore numbers 6, 7 and 8 in depth using our tens frames and part-part whole models and we will also look at measuring length and height. We also hope to deliver lots of fun live lessons!
Please do keep up to date on Tapestry and Dojo; we are working very hard to share lots of useful videos of the teachers at school to support children at home.
Weeks commencing 18th January and 25th January 2021
This week, in the Nursery home learning pack, there are lots of fantastic ideas related to seasons and dinosaurs! Mrs Smith and Miss Maddison will be sharing videos from the classroom and setting some challenges for children.
In our Reception pack, for week 3 we have sent our Talk 4 Writing innovation activity sheets. Please watch our recorded lessons if you can as we will model the activities included in the pack. You will then find that for week 4 we have a new Story - 'The Enormous Egg'. Maths for week 3 is focused around looking at how the number 4 and 5 are made up of smaller number combinations and the focus for week 4 is exploring capacity. Children will also be excited to find that they are still exploring all things linked to dinosaurs!
We have also put together lots of fun activity ideas to develop fine and gross motor skills, and purposeful play, for both Nursery and Reception. We can't wait to see lots of photos and videos of what children have been up to.
