We set homework through Tapestry each Thursday and ask that it is returned through the platform by the following Monday. These home learning experiences will be focused on reinforcing Key English and Maths skills and will be varied in content allowing for creativity, challenge and accessibility across the class. These set homework tasks will be celebrated through a range of different approaches for example: comments by a member of staff; next steps for learning; viewing and sharing in class on screen or discussion with the children. .
If you are having to self-isolate or work from home for any reason, use these resources on your first two days. I will then be in touch via Tapestry with subsequent days' work.
To help your child to read aloud with increased fluency, pace and understanding please share books daily. Engaging in varied reading activities is recommended: listen to your child read their reading book; you read a section then your child reader a section of a longer book or story; read to your child and discuss key points in the story; share a picture book or bedtime story; talk about stories and retell favourites; research facts and information of topics of interest; develop a love of reading.
Books will be given out on a Thursday and we would like these returned on a Monday so they can be quarantined for 48 hours before being released from school again on Thursday. To limit things coming into school, please can children only bring book bags in on a Thursday and a Monday to transport their books? There is no need for book bags to come in daily as we are limiting items going to and from school. Water bottles can be carried by hands as children arrive at school. Snacks are provided by school daily and PE kit is to be worn all day Mondays.
Keep up the amazing reading and use the following links to access your books.
