Self-isolation Daily Timetable Links

Use the relevant links below for each of the sessions on our timetable. Remember you will need sound on.

Remember to pause the videos to give yourselves enough time to complete the activities set and then start them playing again when you are ready.

Home Learning during lockdown 

 

Please regularly check your emails for any updates and for timetable ideas. 
 

Below are details of online learning and links to lessons.
 

We recognise all children learn differently and learning through play is a vital part of children’s development. 
 

Please try to make all of the learning fun and try not to worry if you have days when learning doesn’t go to plan. It happens to us all!
 

We couldn’t be more proud of our children and yourselves.
 

Thank you for everything you are doing throughout these difficult times and for your ongoing support as your child’s primary educator. 

 

Here is a suggested timetable, please note this is only a guide.

Zoom.

Every school day at 10.30am-11.00am there will be a Zoom meeting where you can ask any questions or your child can share any learning they have done. 

Details of these are sent via emal.  Please note: this is optional and you therefore don't need to attend it every day.

Participants will be let into the Zoom Call one at a time to allow for private conversations.  

 

A different way of learning.

We very much recognise that children learn differently at home, so it may be that some lessons are more challenging or children would enjoy extending their learning further / exploring other topics for a few lessons. 

 

Please look at the lessons and use the reception / year one titles as a guide rather than feeling like you must follow the year group your child is in.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/units/the-three-billy-goats-gruff-d801

 

 

PHONICS

 

The phonics groups are the same as the literacy groups so please follow that group's phonics. The first Power point or PDF in each group contains 5 lessons for the whole week.  Phonics should be completed daily for around 20 minutes. I have included a sound mat for each of the phases and a tricky word Power point for extra practise. The previous week will also be available in case your child needs to recap their learning. Children need to be able to recognise the sounds and be able to write the sound in response to hearing it.

 

To support children in their learning, please visit Spelling Shed and Purple Mash for your child’s set phonics tasks.  Log in details are in your child’s reading folder. Please complete the tasks which are due to be handed in first. Daily practise with their letter flash cards or sound mats before a new sound is introduced will support your child with their phonics. Please let us know how your child is getting on.

 

Here are the links for Spelling Shed and Purple Mash:

https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb/

https://www.purplemash.com/sch/green-bb5


Phonics Play are also offering free access to their games and activities. Log in details are available on their site https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ 

 

Please note that we use the cursive 'k' in our handwriting policy which is not always available in the Power points so I have attached a handwriting formation poster under the weekly phonics as a guide. I hope this helps.

Art

This half term we are going to be looking at fruits and how they look, both from the inside and the outside. 

Each week you will need a different  fruit or vegetable.

Reception: Look at your fruit or vegetable carefully.  Does it have skin?  What does that look like?  Are there any marks that you can see?  Do they look darker? 

When you are drawing your fruit or vegetable, think about how large it is, add any leaves.  Try to match the colours you use to your fruit or vegetable.

Year One: Take time to look at your fruit or vegetable carefully.  Can you see any seeds?  Ask your parent or carer to cut it open, can you see any seeds now?  Think about how the different part of the fruit looks similar or different.  Try to use your pencil to add detail and press harder to make it appear darker.  You can start to add different shades by pressing on harder and lighter.

Here are links to lessons to take you through how you can develop your drawing skills.

Week beginning 25th February

This week we will be looking at how we can use different things to draw in different ways.

Mrs Clark’s simple cupcake recipe 


I’ve made these lots of times and every time they’ve turned out to be very delicious 😊

 

You will need an adult to help you to weigh your ingredients and with the oven.
 

Remember, never go near an oven when it is on. They can be very dangerous

Ingredients  
125g self raising flour

125g butter or margarine 

125g caster sugar 

2 medium sized eggs 

12 bun cases

 

For decoration 

icing sugar

sprinkles for decoration. 
 

1. Ask an adult to preheat the oven to 180 degrees C or gas mark 4. 
2.  Carefully put one bun case into each bun tray hole. 
3. Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl, all at once. Make sure everything is smooth and it should look nice and creamy. 
4. Carefully spoon the mix into the cases and make sure each one gets about the same amount. 
5. Ask your adult for help and remember to stay away from the oven...Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. 
6. Put the icing sugar into a bowl and add a little water, you won’t need much! You can add food colouring if you want to. 
7.  When the cakes are cooked they will look nice and lightly browned. 
8.  When they are cool, use a spoon or butter knife to spread the icing and add sprinkles if you like. 
9.  The best bit...enjoy eating them and share them with your family. 
Here’s a photo of ours, I’m sure yours will look just as tasty 😊
