Home Learning for Class A

If you are isolating and need home learning for your child, I will contact you as soon as possible via Class Dojo. I will send you an individual message with details on what we are doing in Class for each day your child is at home, with the activities you should do at home too. This will ensure your child does not miss any learning.

What to do in the meantime?

If you haven't yet received an individual message please do the following activities. I will contact you within one school day so please allow up to that time. The activities below would support learning at home for one day, until you receive additional information via Dojo.

Phonics- The sounds we have learnt so far are... s, a, t, p, I, n, m, d, g, o, c and k.
Write these sounds and ask your child to say the sound and do the actions. Download the sound mat further down this page to support with this.
Click on this link https://www.phonicsbloom.com/uk/game/odd-and-bob?phase=2 and select the sound 'k'. Children will need to sound out and blend the words and decide if they are real words or nonsense words. This is a fun game that is great for working on blending!

Literacy - In school we will write in play. So we would like you to do the same at home. Your child should choose an activity they like to play or do at home.
Cut up some small bits of paper for children to make their own labels for their toys. They should make at least 4 labels or could make a list if this is more appropriate for the play. It is important children do the writing. To support children say the word they need to write, your child should repeat it back to you. emphasise the first sound in the word. Ask what does it start with? (Use the sound mat further down this page to help with formation, find it on the sound mat and copy it). What sound is at the end? Children should write at least the start and most prominent or end sound of each word, eg. bb (baby) cr (car) cs (castle)

Some examples could be.. children could label their teddies with their names, make a picture and write the labels, make a farm and label the animals for the farmer, play teachers and make a register.
Parents should send me a photo of this on Dojo, via messenger. Thank you.

Maths - Children should go on a number hunt, this is best in the kitchen cupboard on packets!
Children should write in a line numbers 1 to 9, like below. It is important children write these numbers.
Each time they find a number, they should tick the number. Which number was your most popular?
Please send me a photo of this, via Dojo messenger.

Addition activity- Please complete a jigsaw at home. Use an online timer to see how long it takes you. After the first try, do it again and see if you can beat your time!
Send me a photo of your jigsaw please!

Please contact me with any questions you may have. Please use Dojo messenger or call the office and I will call you back when I am able to. Thank you!
