Welcome to Beech Class!
Over the next half term we are going to be thinking all about Castles. We are starting by reading Jack and the Beanstalk and then Cinderella. Following that we will be thinking about other traditional tales and following the children's interests. Please see the Parent Forecast below for a little more information about what we will be doing.
It has been so lovely to finally have nearly everyone back together again. The children have been amazing and have settled back into school life really well. We have had lots of giggles and fun, especially playing outside! Next week we are going to be having lots of Easter fun. Check back here towards the end of next week for lots of pictures of what we have been doing.
Just a note about self isolating...
If you are self isolating your work will be sent to you on Class Dojo Portfolio. Please send this back to us just like you did during Lockdown and we will mark it as soon as possible.
Your daily jobs that always need completing in the case of self isolating are:
Targets - if you are unsure of your child's current target please send us a message, unless we have sent you a different message it will be the same as during Lockdown as we are messaging as soon as these change.
Reading - either using your child's reading book or Oxford Owl.
Counting - Practise counting and recognising numbers (0-10 initially then 0-15 and 0-20)
Children that are self isolating...
For children that are self isolating this is the plan for the week. It will be uploaded daily onto Class Dojo and Miss Brittain and Miss Connolly will also be doing two Live Zoom Calls a day, one for a Story and one for a short Maths Meeting. If you have any questions please ask.
We all practised a Zoom call this morning to say hello to each other and share a story - 'The Runaway Iceberg'. The children were then asked to make a penguin from the story.
Reading in Beech Class
Please see below lots of useful information about reading at home. I have also attached the letter that you have been emailed through Purple Mash and a physical copy with the password and username sent out. We are trying to encourage the children to read at home with you and practise the sounds that they have learnt. The benefits of reading are huge and it underpins so many other areas of the curriculum, including, enhancing the children's imagination for when they are reading. Please email through Purple Mash when your child has read at home with 'Reading' as the subject line. It would be really helpful if you could email both Mrs Fenton and Mrs Strutt in the same email so that we can pick it up as soon as possible and respond to you. In the information below you will find some comments that you can make too. Please also email when you have shared a book together and your child has had the opportunity to talk about the pictures and predict the ending of the story. This is valuable learning and will be classed as one of the children's reads.
Thank you in advance for your support with this.
Mrs Fenton and Mrs Strutt
Just incase you have to self isolate over the next few weeks we have updated the Home Learning Menu. You will need some of the resources that you have already made during our 'Circuit Breaker' before the half term. Please remember we are always only an email away and we will be checking our emails daily to make sure that we get back to you as soon as possible. If you are emailing please email both Mrs Fenton and Mrs Strutt. We can both be added to the 'to' box and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We will let each other know when we have replied so you don't get bombarded with emails!
Stay safe Beech Class and remember you are all amazing and are trying so hard with our new rules and routines and we are so proud of you!
Hello Beech Class,
Below are some activities for you to be doing whilst school is closed (all information on the homepage). There is a menu below with some activities on for you to do. To start with you will need to do some initial activities that will help you to complete the other activities. They are easy...don't worry! These activities include making number cards and a calendar from things you have laying around in the house that you can use to learn your numbers and to practise saying the date everyday, just like we do in class.
Please remember if you have any questions you can email us through Purple Mash and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We will be sending an email out tomorrow to everyone to say hello and make sure that you are all ok. Please email if you need anything. We will be checking this daily. Below are some pdf documents that might help you.
Stay safe and keep smiling,
Mrs Fenton, Mrs Strutt, Miss Connolly and Miss Brittain.
Our PE day is Monday and Thursday. You do not need to bring a P.E kit for this.
Hello Beech Class,
We are really looking forward to seeing all your lovely, smiley faces back in school. We have really missed you but have loved seeing the work that you have been doing on Purple Mash and Evidence Me. We have carefully planned lots of new and exciting activities for us to do and our main aim is to settle back into school life and have lots of fun! It might even get a bit messy! Our classroom looks a little bit different to make sure that it is safe for us to come back. Have a look at the pictures (will be added on Tuesday) to see what it looks like. You will all be given your own space and a special pack with all the things that you need. You will also have your wellbeing pack with the much loved slime!
Just a note about Home Learning
Until your group starts school you will need to do some Home Learning. This will be a range of activities online and from the menu below. We will be checking and marking the work on Purple Mash and can't wait to see what you all are getting up to.
The menu will be uploaded below on Wednesday so, please keep checking back. All of the Purple Mash activities start Tuesday when the first group of children start back. Please note you have been sent a text about your child's individual start date. If you have not received this please ring the school office Tuesday or email email@example.com and we will get back to you.
As a whole school we have planned some exciting activities all linked to the book 'Rainbow Fish' and then when you go into your new classes we will be reading 'Here we are'. It is a great way to bring our 'bubbles' together, even though we will all be apart.
See you all soon,
Mrs Fenton and Mrs Strutt
Just to let you all know that we are missing you all so much and can't wait to see all your happy and smiley faces. We have loved chatting to some of you when we have rang. It has been lovely to hear all the exciting things that you have been doing. We would love it if you could send us some pictures that you are happy for us to add to our website! (You can send them through Purple Mash - go to 'Tools', '2Email'.)
See you all very soon hopefully!
Mrs Fenton, Mrs Strutt, Miss Connolly and Miss Brittain :)
