Acorns 2019 - 2020
WELCOME TO ACORNS!
Class teacher - Miss L Daniels (email@example.com)
Teaching Assistant - Mrs Challenor
I hope you all had a wonderful half term break and made the most of the sunshine.
This half term we will be starting a whole school topic ‘Delving into the Environment’, where we will be learning all about plants and minibeasts.
At school we are wanting to create a ‘Thankfulness Tree’. We would like all children to be involved with making our ‘Thankfulness Tree’, whether they are at home or school. We would like all children to write and draw on a piece of paper or card something that they are thankful for. Once we have received them, we will then laminate them all and stick them on our thankfulness tree. Please use ¼ of an A4 page for your picture/writing. Please find attached an example of how yours could look.
Weekly Home Learning
Our home learning is changing slightly this term. Please find attached below a weekly jigsaw puzzle containing 10 challenges which will cover a week of home learning. Our expectation is that your child completes 2 of the challenges each day. Once you have completed all your weekly challenges (on a Friday) please upload some photos or videos onto Tapestry to show me the fantastic learning you have been doing.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email and I will do my best to answer them.
Many thanks for your continued support during this time.
Songs & Rhymes
Daily phonics lessons
We are pleased to let you know your child can recieve a daily phonics lesson on YouTube, whilst schools are closed. Phonics is a way of teaching children to read and write and is an essential part of your child’s education. For Reception, phonics lessons will take place at 10am each day. Please read the letter below for more information.
Reading at home
Learning to read is one of the most important skills your child will learn in the Early Years. The more children read the more fluent and confident they will become so one of the most important things you can do at home is encourage your child to read every day. To support you with this we have signed up to the Oxford Owl Reading Website https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/. Here you can access lots of levelled reading books. All you must do is login to the site with the class login details. You can then search books by age range and book band. The book band follows the same colour scheme as the books at school and will allow your child to access the right book at the right level. Please email for the class login details.
Please find below some collective worship resources which you can use with your child at home.
Virtual Church Service
Teresa Nixon, who comes in from St John’s Hartford to lead Collective Worship, is doing a children’s talk, craft and song as part of the St John’s virtual church service each week. Please see the links below.
